Spirulina offers more nutrition per acre than any other food. It delivers 20 times more protein per acre than soybeans, 200 times more than beef. By growing more Spirulina, we can help stop cutting the last original forests to grow food. By bringing it into our personal lives, we become part of the solution to improve the health of our planet.
How does Spirulina benefit the human body?
Spirulina contains all the nutrients that the human body needs. A deficiency of any of these nutrients would compromise the proper functioning of our body. There are several peer reviewed scientific studies about Spirulina's ability to inhibit viral reproduction, strengthen both the cellular and the immune system, and cause regression and inhibition of cancers.
Is there actual scientific evidence of all these claims?
Yes. Scientists around the world - in Japan, China, India, Europe, Russia and the USA - are discovering the importance of Spirulina, how and why Spirulina is so effective for humans' and animals' health. Hundreds of published scientific studies reveal how Spirulina and its unique phytonutrients boost the immune system and improve health.
How does Spirulina strengthen our immune system?
Spirulina is a powerful tonic for the immune system. The phytonutrients,responsible for strengthening the immune system are beta carotene, phycocyanin and polysaccharides. Published studies from all over the world feeding mice, hamsters, chickens, turkeys, cats, fish and even humans, confirm Spirulina improves immune system function. Medical scientists discovered that it not only stimulates the immune system, it actually enhances the body's ability to generate new blood cells. Important parts of the immune system, bone marrow stem cells, macrophages, T-cells and natural killer cells, spleen and thymus glands - all show enhanced activity. Scientists observe Spirulina causes macrophages to increase in number, become activated and more effective in killing germs.
How does Spirulina enhance cardiovascular health and help lower cholesterol?
Animal nutrition studies in Mexico, Argentina, Japan and India found the same cholesterol lowering benefits and an improvement in heart artery function for lower blood pressure. Published scientific studies with men in Japan and India showed several grams of Spirulina daily can lower cholesterol. These studies suggest spirulina will reduce serum LDL (Low Density Lipoproteins - the bad cholesterol) and raise HDL (High Density Lipoproteins - the good cholesterol).
Human studies in Germany and India found a weight reduction effect along with cholesterol reduction. All these studies indicate Spirulina is a useful supplement for cardiovascular health and for lowering cholesterol.
How digestible is spirulina?
Spirulina builds soft cell walls from a network of proteins, polysaccharides and enzymes. It just melts away inside your body. This is important for those who suffer from poor digestion, or for older people with restricted diets.
Enzymes are important. How can Spirulina build our body's enzyme system?Enzymes in our bodies digest our food, cut, paste and repair our DNA and power our critical body systems. It's always good to enhance our diet with raw foods like fresh fruit, vegetables and juices, which are rich in natural living enzymes. Dehydrated super foods like Spirulina still have natural enzymes present. More importantly, Spirulina has building blocks such as minerals, phytonutrients,
