THE PROCESS THAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
The Spirulina is grown in shallow ponds in rural India. The ponds are stirred each day to encourage photosynthesis. The water is kept at a high alkalinity to ensure other algaes do not grow in the ponds.
Once the Spirulina is dense, the water is pressed and strained and the Spirulina becomes a paste. It is then dried in the sun. Air drying creates a far more pleasant flavour and aroma to the Spirulina.
IS IT ORGANIC?
Yes our Spirulina is independently certified organic and tested for heavy metals.
REDUCES BAD CHOLESTEROL
Spirulina has been found to assist with the managing of bad cholesterol (LDL). Yet the Spirulina doesn’t appear to reduce the good cholesterol (HDL).
In one study 15 male volunteers were given 4.2 grams of Spirulina per day. Researchers concluded that not only had the bad cholesterol reduced “significantly” but the fat in the arteries of the volunteers’ had also decreased.
In a second study the volunteers were given 4 grams of Spirulina per day. The researchers concluded that not only had the bad cholesterol reduced but also a number of other indicators of heart issues had also reduced (blood cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and VLDL cholesterol). They also found that the good cholesterol increased over the same period and the volunteers lost excess weight.
60% EASY TO DIGEST PROTEIN
Our Spirulina is packed with easily-digestible vegetable protein and contains all the essential amino acids. The essential amino acids are known as ‘essential’ because we must have them in our diet as the body cannot produce them itself.
As Spirulina has no cellulose in its cell walls it is easily digested and assimilated by the body. It is also not a meat product so you avoid the cholesterol that comes with meat proteins.
NATURAL BETA-CAROTENE (PROVITAMIN A)
Spirulina is the richest source of natural beta carotene, ten times more concentrated than in carrots. Beta carotene is a very important antioxidant which has been shown to keep your skin healthy and it plays a vital role in eye health.
GAMMA-LINOLENIC ACID (GLA)
There is a rare essential fatty acid that is generally only found in Mother’s Milk known as GLA. GLA is important for the creation of hormones that control many functions in your body and it helps your body deal with inflammation and skin conditions.
NATURALLY HIGH IN IRON
Iron is essential to build a strong immune system, and yet iron deficiency is the most common mineral deficiency. Studies show that the iron in spirulina is absorbed 60% more efficiently than from iron supplements.
PACKED WITH CHLOROPHYLL
Spirulina contains 1% chlorophyll, among the highest levels found anywhere in nature. Chlorophyll is believed to be a cleansing and detoxifying nutrient.
