When it comes to natural nutritional supplements there is little doubt that Spirulina is head and shoulders above the rest. A nutrient rich blue green algae that grows naturally in mineral-rich alkaline lakes, Spirulina is the ultimate natural nutritional supplement and a giant leap beyond ordinary supplements. Spirulina contains the most complete source of nutrients found in any single food on the planet.
When you think of protein you usually think of meat, or maybe fish. Spirulina contains more high biological value protein, over 65%, than any other natural food and that includes both meat and fish. Spirulina also contains more protein than:
*Dried Milk (35%)
*Whole Milk (3%)
Yet, thatÂs not its most impressive feature; Spirulina contains a greater concentration of vitamins, nutrients and other unusual nutrients than any other natural food on the planet. Just 3 to 10 grams per day can deliver impressive amounts of beta carotene, vitamin B-12 and B complex, iron, essential trace minerals, and gamma-linolenic acid. And thatÂs not all; spirulina is rich in phytonutrients and functional nutrients that demonstrate a positive effect on health.
Spirulina is a major source of iron, calcium and mineral content. These help to maintain healthy blood, bones, nerves and muscles. Spirulina is natureÂs richest wholefood source of Biochelated Organic Iron, which is completely non-toxic and weighs in with 58 times more iron than raw spinach and 28 times more iron than raw beef liver.
Spirulina is unquestionably one of the planet's finest natural complexes for supporting body ecology and the benefits are many, it contains the following natural substances essential for optimum health:
*All eight essential amino acids - and ten non-essential amino acids Â in terms of nutritional profile, spirulina is the closest thing to motherÂs milk.
*Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) - an essential fatty acid thought to help combat heart disease, arthritis and the symptoms of ageing. Spirulina contains more GLA than Evening Primrose Oil.
*Natural Carotenes & Antioxidants - ridding the body of harmful Âfree radicalsÂ, thus improving skin and hair and general well-being. Spirulina contains every natural antioxidant known; the antioxidant vitamins B-1 and B-6; the minerals zinc, manganese and copper, the amino acid methionine; and the super-antioxidants beta-carotene (25 times richer than raw carrots), vitamin E and trace element selenium.
*Wide spectrum of vitamins - including natural vitamin E for promoting normal red cell formation and vitamins B-12, B-2 and B-6 to aid absorption, release energy from food, and enhance brain function.
*Low fat content - proper balanced nutrition reduces the bodyÂs craving for food. Coupled with virtually no fat, spirulina can be a powerful weapon for combating weight loss.
