In contrast to land plants, spirulina does not have a hard cell wall and is therefore easy to digest. It has a high protein content, about 65%, and contains all the essential amino acids (including those that the human body cannot produce and we must acquire through food). Protein contributes to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass and strong bones.
Spirulina has antioxidant properties as it is rich in Vitamin E. Vitamin E contributes to the protection of cells against oxidative stress and protects DNA, proteins and lipids from oxidative damage. Spirulina is also high in calcium, magnesium and iron. Calcium plays a role in many functions of the body, including contributing to normal muscle function, transferring information through the nervous system, and maintaining healthy bones and teeth. Magnesium contributes to the maintenance of bones and teeth, muscle function, metabolism and it reduces fatigue. Copper contributes to the transport of oxygen throughout the body, but also to cognitive function, the immune system and the reduction of fatigue.
Organically grown spirulina is the most environmentally friendly source of protein; it is nutritionally complete and can be cultivated on areas of land unsuitable for other forms of agriculture. And unlike livestock farming (one of the biggest emitters of greenhouse gases, 34kg CO2 per kilogram of meat protein), spirulina actually removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as it grows.
Because it reproduces so quickly and gets its own energy from sunlight, spirulina farming is also very energy efficient. No biomass energy is wasted or lost during the production process, and almost all nutrients are preserved so that the final product contains as many digestible proteins and vitamins as possible from the first stage of the food cycle.
It provides an energy boost almost immediately! It helps to improve stamina and reduce fatigue.
It helps improve the immune system, providing exceptional support for the heart, liver and kidneys.
Spirulina is also a natural detoxifier, helping to cleanse the body of toxins and other contaminants that can be caused by illness or other health complications.
It also has very powerful antioxidant properties, which can reduce inflammation in the body.
