Spirulina Info

What is Spirulina?

Spirulina is a blue-green coloured vegetable alga found in both fresh and salt water. It particularly thrives in naturally mineral rich alkaline lakes. Its key requirements are sunlight and a hot climate.

Its microscopic single celled spiral coiled shape holds a rich concentration of easily assimilated complete proteins (including all essential amino acids), antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, nucleic acids, chlorophyll and other phytonutrients. In fact spirulina has a higher percentage of protein (60%) than any other food. It is one of nature’s super foods.

Spirulina Benefits

Centuries ago spirulina was valued by Africans and the Mayan and Aztec cultures in Mexico as a staple food.

Spirulina is a valuable nutrient source in cases of malnutrition, and as a reliable source of vegetable protein and vitamin B12 is of particular benefit to people eating a vegan diet. Recent research using specific quantitative assays to determine human-active B12 percentages in spirulina have confirmed it as a viable source.

Benefits are reported in cases of diabetes, glaucoma, hair loss, liver disease, peptic ulcers and pancreatitis. In times of increased stress spirulina contributes concentrated nutrients, antioxidant and antineoplastic actions.

Spirulina’s high iodine content makes it a valuable aid in balancing thyroid function and reducing toxicity from radioactive substances in the body.

Spirulina Side Effects and Contraindications

  • As a balanced food in its natural state, spirulina has no toxic effect on the body when ingested within the recommended dosage range.
  • Quality of cultivation and harvesting varies from country to country. Some spirulina may contain unsafe levels of mercury, arsenic, cadmium and lead. Radioactive ion contamination is another possibility.

Product Reviews

  • Manufacturer needs to improve packaging

    Good product, but a huge container that would hold double the quantity. Such a shame that all that space full of air is being shipped all over the place.
    I would have bought 600 and make the packaging full rather than only half full with 300 tablets.

  • Spirulina Performance tablets

    I have been taking Spirulina Performance tablets for approximately twelve months now, and I can say that they are excellent. They have empowered me with a vigour I havent had in years. These tablets are a part of my personal health program, but I have recommended them to my family and all else who may read this review. I likewise havent had any colds or flues this past season. I am naturally low in iron, and I believe these tablets supply iron as well. However, in a nutshell I can highly recommend these tablets for anyone who may be experience fatigue, ill health. They are truly a good product.
