Searching for super greens: Spirulina certainly deserves to be amongst the A team of superfoods you are considering to include in your diet. One of the oldest forms of super greens on earth, Spirulina is a single celled blue green algae that helps produce oxygen on the planet.
Super greens Spirulina are so dense that you can survive on it and water alone. The Aztecs revered Spirulina and mixed it with cacao and the people of Mexico city used it as their main source of protein for 5,000 years.
With 65-70% protein, Spirulina has the highest content of protein of all super greens, and of any other known food for that matter. It has no cellulose and therefore is highly digestible. Super greens Spirulina contain eighteen amino acids, nucleic acids, essentials fatty acids, chlorophyll and a full spectrum of anti-oxidants, vitamins, trace elements and minerals.
As a rich source of anti-inflammatory GLA (gamma linolenic acid), Spirulina is the green superfood that benefits psoriasis, rosacea, eczema, and acne. Spirulina detoxifies, provides anti-oxydants, liver cleansing sulphur, proteins and nucleic essential for cell renewal. The blue pigment phycocianin contained in these super greens protects against damaging UV.
Spirulina has four calories per gram of protein (as opposed to beef with sixty five calories per gram). Combined with exercise, a diet high in proteins and amino acids helps build lean muscles and helps your body burn more calories.
Protein balances brain chemistry. The phycocianin helps build neurostransmitters improving memory, concentration and mood.
The eyes are protected from UV damages by pigments called xanthophyll (zeaxanthis and lutein). High levels of the anti-oxydant zeaxanthis – also found in Goji berries – help reduce macular degeneration and cataracts for which there is no known cure.
The iron contained in Spirulina is four times more absorbable than in beef whilst chlorophyll and phycocyanin stimulates the creation of blood cells.
Spirulina has also been shown to support beneficial outcomes for the following:
This singled cells algae also contains crazy concentrations of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, such as beta carotene (10 times more concentrated than that of carrots), iron, potassium, magnesium, copper, calcium, chromium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, zinc, essential trace minerals, and gamma-linolenic acid. Shall we add that it is the most abundant source of Vitamin B-12, and is also rich in phytonutrients and functional nutrients that have a demonstrably positive effect on health.
Because it is nature, Spirulina talks a language understandable to the DNA of our body and is therefore considered a superior whole food alternative to isolated vitamin supplements.
As Spirulina is a powerful detoxifier, it is best to start with smaller amounts at first to build up progressively. 1-3 daily teaspoons, Spirulina is best mixed into a juice.
