Raw Organic Spirulina Tablets Information
Spirulina in even easier to use compressed (spirulina powder) tablet form pose the same benefit as the powder counterpart, due to the extreme (cold) compression method of production that uses no bonding agents, just pure spirulina powder.
Spirulina, nature’s most perfect food and nutritional supplement are freshwater-growing, alkaline-environment, microscopic algae that have been living on the planet since the appearance of life on Earth. Spirulina form spiralling, helical, microscopic strands that are smaller than the human eye can detect, hence the name ‘spirulina’ from this superfoods spiral character.
There are many forms of valuable algae available to human nutrition, however in the last 40 years spirulina has been singled out in particular for its incredible nutritional properties and as a functional food for humans and animals. Spirulina has therefore become the most extensively researched food microalgae, ahead of chlorella, and has been eaten regularly by North African and South American cultures for centuries (where it was found in abundance in natural alkaline lakes). Extensive research has now enabled many people around the globe to realise the huge potential of spirulina as a whole food source. Spirulina’s incredible range of nutrients and easy absorption will help increase your energy, vitality and level of well being. And in tablet form, spiriulina is perfect for busy people who don’t have time for regular, balanced meals to nourish themselves.
Spirulina tablets contain an astounding array of nutrients that help strengthen the immune system, and a soft cell wall that makes it easily digestible. By adding spirulina to your nutritional arsenal, you can expect to benefit from powerful protein; vitamins; major and trace minerals; essential fatty acids; nucleic acids (RNA and DNA); polysaccharides; as well as a vast spectrum of antioxidants, including zeaxanthin, the most important antioxidant for improving vision; a whole spectrum of phytopigments including chlorophyll, a blood building pigment, and phycocyanin, the blue pigment that has been shown to stimulate stem cell mobilisation from bone marrow. A single teaspoon (or 8 tablets) contains a powerhouse of over 100 vitamins, minerals, proteins, antioxidants, and phytonutrients in nutrition, equivalent to three servings of vegetables.
A rich algae superfood that as a complete protein consists of 64-71 percent protein – the highest concentration of protein in any food – containing all eight essential amino acids, and eighteen amino acids in total.
Rich in the longevity vitamin A (beta-carotene), as well as B1, B2, B6, E and K, and the minerals potassium, calcium, zinc, sodium, magnesium, manganese, selenium, iron (as much as red meat), and phosphorous.
Spirulina can also boast as the only green food rich in the essential fatty acid, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), the only other major superfood source with similar GLA concentrations being hempseed. GLA makes one’s skin and hair shiny and strong, yet soft. Spirulina is an excellent superfood choice to help fight the inflammatory symptoms of arthritis, due to GLA shown to inhibit the formation of inflammatory prostaglandins and arachidonate metabolites. (GLA has also been linked with spirulina’s abilities in reducing allergies).
Spirulina tablets are generally recommended taken before or between meals for perfect nutrition without the heaviness of bulky food. Many people use spirulina to supply nutrients that are lacking in their diet, for more energy, nutritional insurance, weight control and cleansing.
Athletes will discover more endurance and strength on spirulina, whilst older populations and people with digestive, assimilation and elimination problems will find nourishment through better nutrient absorption, and weight watchers will satisfy appetite as spirulina provides essential nutrients.
