Spirulina is a single cell blue green algae that can grow up to half a millimetre in length. It thrives in warm, brackish saline ponds. Spirulina grows so fast that it accounts for up to half of the oxygen on our planet! This simple, one-celled plant is one of the main bases of the food chain, and of life on our planet. Spirulina is highly alkalising and so helps to restore the alkaline pH balance of the body’s tissues.
Spirulina contains so much good, balanced nutrition that it is a highly energizing food. It is 65% protein, with carbohydrates, vitamins, amino acids, and other nutrients vital to life. The protein is balanced, containing all the essential amino acids and most of those considered non-essential.
Spirulina contains over 100 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes and phytonutrients. Essential unsaturated fatty acids, including gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), it has many important minerals including potassium, calcium, zinc, magnesium, selenium, iron, and phosphorus, vitamins including B-12 and others of the B-complex, E, and beta carotene, digestive enzymes, chlorophyll, and pigments that help liver function.
Ounce for ounce, Spirulina provides more complete protein than meat. This 65% easily digested protein can in itself give a boost, especially given the prevalence of high-carbohydrate diets. Since the protein in spirulina is high in phenylalanine, it has also been used as an aid to appetite suppression and weight-loss.
