Spirulina is becoming increasingly attractive to
nutritionists and health conscious consumers around the globe
for many reasons.
To live in optimum heath every body needs nutrients
for growth, maintenance and reproduction and a typical western
diet may no longer supply the sustenance our bodies need in order
to repair and maintain vitality.
Spirulina is principally composed of protein, carbohydrates,
fats and ash (sodium and potassium). It also contains most of
the vitamins and minerals needed to maintain balance and well
being. Spirulina has a long history of safe human consumption
and over 30 years of commercial safety testing. It meets all international
food quality and safety standards. Spirulina has the most remarkable
concentration of functional nutrients ever known in any food,
plant, grain or herb. Spirulina contains ALL the essential amino
acids and as such can be described as a 'complete protein'.
Once Spirulina ingested, your body feels energy
within minutes of consuming it. Because digestion is the biggest
process occurring in the body, the body will send most of its
blood supply to the digestive organs. This aids in digestion but
can result in a tired, sluggish feeling. Spirulina is the total
opposite. Because it can be consumed as a liquid, you feel light
and energized as it provides energy and nourishment between meals
or in place of a meal.
On top of all this, Spirulina delivers more nutrition
per acre than any other food on the planet. This has many exciting
implications for more efficient, less damaging food production
for the future. Spirulina cultivation requires little or no use
of herbicides or pesticides and is energy efficient. Because it
does not erode, deteriorate or pollute its natural habitat it
is the sensible choice for sustainable living.
