What are the benefits of Spirulina for humans
Scientific studies conducted around the world have shown that Spirulina destroys many viruses and replenishes vitamin and mineral deficiencies. It also reduces the amount of fat in the blood, has a preventive effect against atherosclerosis, coronary diseases, anemia. It has been observed that these algae accelerate wound healing, stimulate cell renewal and regeneration, which is very important for recovery from various injuries and other diseases, and slow down the aging process.
Spirulina biomass substances stimulate not only the regenerative processes of the body, but also the processes of aeration. Biomass is characterized by enzymatic activity and increases resistance to radiation exposure. Spirulina normalizes metabolic processes, strengthens the immune system and body resistance, has anti-allergic, antioxidant and anti-cancer effects, removes heavy metals, toxins, radionuclides from the body. Studies have shown that Spirulina supplements have a therapeutic, preventive and probiotic effect, increase vitality and activity. Spirulina is recommended for people with high physical and psychological loads, after overwork, radiation.
One tablespoon (7 g) of dried Spirulina contains: 20 kcal/85 kJ, 4.0 g protein, 0.5 g fat, 1.5 g carbohydrates, 0.3 g fiber, 95 mg potassium, 2.0 mg iron , 1.0 mg vitamin C, 0.18 salt.
Spirulina biomass contains absolutely all the nutrients necessary to maintain vital processes. Some special substances (bioprotectors, biocorrectors, biostimulants) contained in spirulina are not found in any other natural product.
How Spirulina affects our body
Spirulina balances the intestinal microflora, intensively removes toxic substances from the body, strengthens muscles, improves eyesight, makes the skin more elastic, strengthens hair, normalizes blood cholesterol levels, stimulates metabolism, improves liver function, and strengthens the nervous system. Spirulina is very suitable for use after serious illnesses, operations and various chronic diseases. This is very important when you have to use a lot of synthetic drugs.
The beta-carotene in Spirulina is essential for maintaining the visual acuity of every adult. The protein has a complete complex of amino acids and is extremely low in fat. This is a great supplement for those who are on a strict diet and do not want to harm their health. The easily digestible iron contained in it is useful for those suffering from anemia or prone to this disease.
Spirulina based products are a special supplement for the elderly. A large amount of beta-carotene helps to maintain visual acuity, a complex of B vitamins maintains internal balance, and the cleansing properties of chlorophyll reduce the effects of toxins accumulated in the body.
Spirulina is best taken early in the day on an empty stomach. Spirulina in honey or liquid spirulina should not be used to sweeten tea or coffee if the water temperature is above 40 degrees. It is advisable not to consume Spirulina products in the evening, as it has a tonic effect and can interfere with sleep. Dried Spirulina can be used in many ways – just chew the dried leaf, sprinkle it on dishes, salads, or simply dissolve it in water and consume the daily dose immediately or throughout the day.
Many substances in Spirulina do not dissolve in water, so they are not excreted in the urine. For this reason, it does not matter if you take your daily dose all at once or throughout the day.
Liquid Spirulina is considered the best in quality. Liquid Spirulina is up to 10 times more effective than processed, which contains all the benefits of Spirulina. It is fresh Spirulina biomass preserved with fructose. Fructose was chosen because it is a natural preservative (monosaccharide) that does not raise blood sugar levels, so the foods can be consumed by people with diabetes. Liquid Spirulina can only be offered to the market by the Spirulina manufacturer itself, because after harvesting Spirulina there is very little time (up to 6 hours) for the processing of Spirulina biomass. Biomass with a very high protein content (~65%) begins to spoil very quickly. For this reason, Spirulina powder and tablets (dried Spirulina) dominate the market. We are proud to be the only one on the market to offer a unique line of liquid Spirulina products BIOACTIVE.
To experience the positive effects of Spirulina, you can constantly consume high-quality spirulina. Scientific research has not established an upper limit on when to stop taking Spirulina.
It should be noted that low-quality imported Spirulina (powder, tablets) may contain a large amount of impurities. This is due to the fact that mainly in China or India, Spirulina is grown in open water, and Spirulina itself tends to accumulate heavy metals (not to mention the droppings of flying birds, etc.). Therefore, long-term use of low-quality Spirulina can have negative consequences for the body: cause liver damage, vomiting, weakness, heart palpitations, and shock.
It is important to note that Spirulina is a natural body cleanser that helps flush out toxins from the body, so about 1-2% of people who start consuming it for the first time may experience minor changes in their digestive system during the first few days. These changes are always temporary and after a few days these people return to normal and usually report feeling better than ever.
It is not recommended to consume Spirulina in large quantities, as in rare cases it can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, insomnia or
It takes about 1-3 weeks before you notice a clear change in energy levels, but after 4-5 days of regular use, you will find yourself waking up differently in the morning and having more stamina through the day than before. Results vary from person to person and depend on your condition. Our advice to those taking Spirulina is to drink more water.
Rich in nutrients, vitamins, fatty acids, and amino acids, Spirulina reduces inflammation, tones the skin, and stimulates cell renewal for younger-looking skin. Studies show that consuming Spirulina stimulates the growth of skin fibroblast cells, which produce collagen. Due to the increased production of collagen, the skin becomes more elastic.
Scientific studies confirm the benefits of Spirulina in reducing body fat, waist circumference, body mass index and appetite suppression.
Spirulina is widely used to stimulate hair growth and combat hair loss and baldness. Spirulina contains amino acids, essential fatty acids, vitamin A and beta-carotene, which are great for hair.
Yes, Spirulina is one of those nutrients that support liver function. Spirulina is rich in antioxidants, which also help detoxify the liver. Spirulina contains many elements necessary for the healthy functioning of the immune and nervous systems.
No. Chlorella and Spirulina are different types of algae, but they are both supplements.
While spirulina contains most of the amino acids the body needs, some of them are not enough. Try to eat a balanced diet to fully meet your protein needs. It is written in the literature that vitamin B12 in spirulina is in a different form than it is normally absorbed by the body, but when growing spirulina in Lithuania, the environment for growing spirulina is enriched with the trace element cobalt, as a result, vitamin B12 becomes easily digestible.
Spirulina does not contain collagen. However, this does not reduce its nutritional value. Spirulina is a superfood rich in vitamin A, vitamin K, iron and other phytonutrients.
People with hereditary metabolic diseases: phenylketonuria, characterized by the accumulation of the amino acid phenylalanine in the body, and homocystinuria, when the amino acid methionine is not completely broken down in the body, should avoid the use of spirulina. Spirulina is rich in all amino acids, including phenylalanine and methionine.
