A product of China. Shamans Market Spirulina is grown in certified organic facilities and pure water sources, spirulina are never subjected to chemicals, solvents, or heat. Chlorella and Spirulina are types of algae, single-celled microscopic organisms that are grown in pure fresh water, strong natural sunlight, and clean air. As they multiply at an incredible rate – sometimes completing the reproduction cycle in less than 24 hours – they are truly sustainable super-foods.
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 you’re 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, 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.
