Spirulina & Chlorella Powder
Spirulina – Blue Green Algae This powder is helpful in building the blood, and boosting the immune system.
Spirulina is the most nutrient rich food source on the planet. It also is the highest natural source of complete protein at 70% compared to beef which is 22% and soybeans which are 34%. Spirulina is also the worlds highest natural source of vitamin B 12, and one of the few plants sources of this vitamin. One teaspoon contains 2 1/2 times the RDA of B12 and over twice the amount found in an equal portion of liver. Spirulina is also rich in beta carotene, vitamins B1, B2, B6, D, E, K, chlorophyll, enzymes, all necessary minerals and trace minerals (the sea is rich in these), RNA, DNA nucleic acids, iron, and GLA essential fatty acids.
Spirulina also contains phycocyanin, the blue pigment found only in blue green algae, which has been shown to increase the survival rate of mice with liver cancer. Other studies have shown that when spirulina was given to patients with mouth cancer 45% of them saw their cancer disappear. Spirulina has also shown it’s ability to increase the red blood cell volume and oxygen carrying capability in 30 days in people with anemia. It has also been able to cure all symptoms of gastric ulcers and over 70% of duodenal ulcers in clinical trials. Probably one of the most exciting benefits of taking spirulina is it’s weight loss ability.
By supplying the perfect nutrition when the body is deficient in essential nutrients the signals usually sent that are perceived as hunger are no longer necessary (because spirulina’s super nutrients are in the blood stream in 15 minutes) , causing cravings and hunger pangs to leave. Most people who regularly take spirulina notice decreased appetite, weight loss, improved energy levels including mental alertness and clarity. Chlorella – Green micro algae Similar in it’s nutrient content and health benefits to spirulina, our chlorella has had it’s cell wall broken mechanically unlike others that are chemically broken. This process makes the nutrients more available be digested. Chlorella is very rich in the carotenoids and in magnesium, along with being a powerful blood detoxifier due to it’s chlorophyll content. Chlorophyll can inhibit cancer in all human organs.
The high carotenoid content in chlorella and spirulina has turned precancerous cells back to normal . Carotenoids also protect against heart disease. Cholesterol does not cause artery blockage until it is oxidized. Vitamin C and the carotenoids are major sources that prevent this reactive change. Chlorella is also high in magnesium which is crucial for heart function, immune function, blood sugar balance, muscle strength and relaxation. According to the USDA 80% of Americans are magnesium deficient. With heart disease being the number one killer in the U.S., magnesium deficiencies become a significant factor. Chlorella also has been helpful in eliminating toxic metals like cadmium and uranium.
