What is Spirulina?
Spirulina plantensis is the food supplement form of a one-celled, spiral-shaped microscopic blue-green algae exceedingly adaptable to its surroundings. It naturally occurs in a wide variety of environments including fresh water, tropical springs and salt pans.

Spirulina is one of the earliest forms of life. It is both a complete food and a whole-food supplement. Spirulina has been consumed worldwide for centuries because of its rich nutrient range and ability to sustain life. Today, spirulina farming has become a part of the new era of ecological agriculture, and it is recognised as a powerful food source.

Spirulina contains extensive levels of trace elements and essential minerals. In its natural aquatic environment, minerals present in the water become chelated with amino acids and are thus easily assimilated by the body.

Aside from being an excellent vegetarian source of protein and vitamin B12, other major nutritional components of spirulina include essential fatty oils, phycocyanin, chlorophyll, Beta-carotene, and antioxidants. Phycocyanin makes iron more bioavailable, chlorophyll cleanses and detoxifies the body and helps to remove heavy metals from the system Beta-carotene in the supplement is 10 times greater than carrots.

For more than 30 years spirulina (spirulina platensis) has been the first choice for supplementing a vegetarian diet. This special blue-green algae is a good source of numerous vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, and essential fatty acids which are very difficult to maintain at sufficient concentrations with a vegetarian diet. Most notable is the high-quality protein, which contains all 9 essential amino acids. Spirulina is a better source of protein than either beef or soybeans.

 

Composition: Each 500mg capsule contains 100% pure, premium-grade Organic Spirulina. Spirulina is a highly digestible food and complete protein source. Spirulina’s primitive cellular structure and lack of hard cellular walls allow for rapid formation and synthesis of proteins, thus allowing for higher and more effective digestibility of the protein. As a protein source, spirulina contains all 9 essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein).

All 9 essential amino acids must be present simultaneously in order for the body to synthesise protein which is used for maintenance and repair. Purebulk’s spirulina powder has more than 60% protein, including the following amino acids:

Alanine (8%), Arginine (7.4%), Aspartic Acid (10.2%), Cysteine (0.9%), Glutamic Acid (15.5%), Glycine (5.0%), Histidine (1.6%), Isoleucine (5.3%), Leucine (9.1%), Lysine (5.2%), Methionine (2.0%), Phenylalanine (4.5%), Proline (4.1%), Serine (5.0%), Threonine (5.0%), Tryptophan (1.4%), Tyrosine (4.2%) and Valine (6.0%).

Gene Information: Known support for GSTM1,SOD2 SNPs (single nucleotide polymorphisms), energy, and phase 1 liver detoxification.

Contraindications: Spirulina is considered generally safe at suggested serving sizes. Possible side effects on higher dosages include headache, muscle pain, flushing and sweating. People with allergies to spirulina should avoid products containing it. No interactions of spirulina with foods, medications, or herbs are documented. Keep out of reach of children.

Warning: Do not exceed the recommended dosage. Consult your doctor if symptoms persist, or if you have any concerns, although there have been no known reports of toxic effects associated with the consumption of spirulina.

Dosage and Directions for Use: Take 1–6 capsules daily, or as required. A source of protein, this supplement is rich in nutrients and suitable for vegetarians. Spirulina is a highly digestible and biologically complete plant protein and is also naturally low in calories, with only 2.9 calories per gram compared to the average 4 calories per gram of protein.

Spirulina promotes hematopoiesis (formation and development of red blood cells) due to the high levels of iron present in this food supplement.
It also contains beta carotene, zeaxanthin and phycocyanin, which have powerful antioxidant activity. Antioxidants protect our body’s cells from damage caused by free radicals.
