Restore energy levels and boost immune system
Botanical Name: Spirulina pacifica
Spending the time to eat the right foods in the right quantities is not something which always lives within the realms of practicality. As a result, our diets are becoming more and more ‘fast’ while being less and less ‘food’. And the stuff which isn’t quite fast food is just highly processed cardboard designed to sit in the freezer patiently waiting to be nuked or boiled into some semblance of a meal. The convenience is great but the damage being done to an over worked and poorly nourished body will inevitably to manifest itself as ill health, lethargy, depression or more serious conditions. Any, and all of which, will at some point cost you considerably more time and effort than your two minute noodles ever saved you.
Spirulina (Spirulina pacifica) is an edible macroalgae that is packed with important nutrients required for a healthy body. Spirulina contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6 and B12, as well as amino acids, minerals and antioxidants. Spirulina’s goodies include:
The beta carotene in Spirulina is ten times more concentrated than that in carrots (rabbits everywhere were outraged when they heard). So where your eating deficiencies are fruit and veg related, Spirulina can fill the gap between reality and the four to nine fruit and veg servings that you should be having daily.
Spirulina is 60% protein, more than any other natural food. It contains all nine essential amino acids and only a few calories. Making Spirulina like a fat free steak in a tablet - without tomato sauce unfortunately.
Rare Fatty Acid - Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA)
Spirulina is the only whole-food source of the rare fatty acid Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). This stuff has the handy little habit of reducing cholesterol, lowering blood pressure, easing pre-menstrual pain and reducing the symptoms of certain skin conditions such as eczema.
Many people, especially women, aren’t getting nearly enough iron. Spirulina is rich in iron, magnesium and trace minerals and is easier for the body to absorb than iron supplements. Cop that iron supplements.
Vitamin B-12 and B Complex
Spirulina is a great source of B-12 and B Complex, especially for vego’s, for healthy nerves and tissue as well as unusual phytonutrients for health and cleansing.
A simple 3-10g daily dose of Spirulina can provide you with the nutrients that your body has been missing while you’ve been inhaling kebabs and nuking baked beans. Take the opportunity to protect the health and vitality that your hectic lifestyle may have put at risk.
By taking the simple step of incorporating Spirulina into your daily diet, you will be taking back the nutrients that your busy lifestyle can deny you.
