You Need It, Spirulina for Immunity.

We are undergoing a health revolution. People all over the world are increasingly becoming more conscious about their own health and the responsibility to maintain it. With this increased consciousness, the demand for natural foods, herbal medicines and nutraceuticals is growing dramatically. One of these is a superfood called “Spirulina”. This first photosynthetic life form, our immortal ancestor, was designed by nature 3.5 billion years ago. This unicellular Blue-Green algae produced the oxygen in our atmosphere thus allowing all higher life forms to evolve. It has renewed itself with billions of years of successful evolutionary wisdom coded in its DNA. Although mankind has consumed it for centuries, it was only rediscovered by scientists 30 years ago. SPIRULINA belongs to the plant food group. Its Blue-Green colour comes from two Pigments, Phycocyanin and Chlorophyll. These tiny spiral coils thrive in a high alkaline medium and harvests the energy of the sun to supply a treasure of bio- available nutrients beneficial to the human body.

Spirulina is often described as a Superfood, as it contains the most remarkable concentration of nutrients known in any food, plant, grain or herb. It is the highest Protein food – contains over 60% of digestible vegetable protein. It also has the highest concentration of Beta Carotene, Vitamin B12, Iron, Trace elements and the rare Essential Fatty acids – GLA. These makes Spirulina a great whole food and an effective alternative to isolated Vitamins and Minerals.

Millions of people worldwide consume Spirulina for the qualitative improvement of their health. Current world production of Spirulina for human consumption is more than one thousand metric tons annually. The United States leads world production followed by Thailand, India and China. More countries are planning production as they realize it is a valuable strategic resource.

Being a Superfood contains all the dietary components in optimum proportion to nourish our growth and development. At the same time, it helps to keep our body in a perfect state of balance. The dietary composition and active ingredients of Spirulina are as follows:

  • Proteins (60%-65%) : Essential Amino Acids
  • Carbohydrates (15%) : Polysaccharides, Glycogen
  • Fats (5%-8%) : Essential Fatty Acids, like GLA
  • Vitamins (0.75%) : B19, B29, B39, B69, B129 Others.
  • Minerals & Trace elements (8%) : Iron, Magnesium, calcium, potassium, Selenium etc. in colloidal form.
  • Natural Pigments: Phycocyanin, Chlorophyll, Xanthophyll, Beta Carotenes.

According to Dr. Ragner Berg of the United states:

In order to stay healthy, it is essential that our daily meals provide the proper proportion of alkaline food (80%) and acidic food (20%). However many of the dietary sources of essential nutrients are slightly acidic. Needless to say most of the junk foods are highly acidic and toxic.

Health Benefits Of Spirulina.

GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT

The building blocks of life are Proteins and amino acids. Spirulina is rich in proteins without any side effects. It is helpful in the anabolic build up of the body, viz. its growth and development. Proteins are the most important component of our food and essential constituents for the development of the structural material of our body viz. muscles, tissues and organs. This assumes greater significance as many of the essential amino acids cannot be manufactured in the body and must be supplied in the diet. At the same time, Proteins are equally important as regulators of metabolic functions as enzymes and hormones.

Energy Booster: DXN Spirulina is a highly digestible natural health food supplement. It is rich in Proteins and also contains about 15% carbohydrates in Polysaccharides, Glycogen, rhamnose in easily digestible forms. These elements are conveniently converted into glucose and used as an energy source. The conversion of nutrients into energy is faster for Spirulina than any other source of food.

STRENGTHENING IMMUNE SYSTEM

Regular consumption of Spirulina strengthens the immune system. Important parts of the immune system like bone marrow, stem cells, macrophages, T-cells, natural killer cells, spleen and thymus glands show enhanced activity on its sustained consumption. This increases the resistance to diseases and improves functioning of the immune system. The easy availability of all essential nutrients in Spirulina also directs the metabolic activities to support the immune system.

ZERO CHOLESTEROL FOOD.

The high intensity Super Food- Spirulina is cholesterol- free, although rich in Proteins and other essential nutrients. Research studies have shown that Spirulina reduces the level of serum LDL- the bad cholesterol and raises HDL- the good cholesterol. Thus Spirulina is a useful supplement for cardiovascular health and for lowering cholesterol.

IMPROVING GASTROINTESTINAL AND DIGESTIVE HEALTH.

Spirulina acts as a functional food, feeding beneficial intestinal flora, especially Lactobacillus and Bididus. Maintaining a healthy population of these bacteria in the intestine reduces potential problems from opportunistic pathogens like E. coli and Candida albicans. Studios show when Spirulina is added to the diet, beneficial intestinal flora increase. Spirulina is rich in natural fibre, vitamin B and magnesium, which are best for those who suffer from hemorrhoids, constipation, etc.

Enhancing Natural Cleansing And Detoxification.

Spirulina has unique combination of phytonutrients like Chlorophyll, Phycocyanin and Polysaccharides. These are responsible for strengthening the immune system be accelerating our body’s production of antibodies and cytokines for better protection against toxic releases of bacteria and other infectious agents; thus helping in cleansing and Detoxification.

BETTER ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION, REDUCING CANCER RISK.

Spirulina helps in reducing the risk of cancer by preventing the damage caused to our body by the onslaught of free radicals and toxins. It provides better anti-oxident protection, as it is rich in anti-oxident vitamins, anti-oxident minerals, and natural Pigments like beta-carotene, Chlorophyll, Phycocyanin etc.

SLIMMING AND WEIGHT LOSS.

The high concentration of essential nutrients in Spirulina helps to satisfy our appetite, so we eat less. Spirulina is an ideal support for any diet. As a supplement, it helps us to lighten up and make the switch from bulky diet to lighter, more powerful food. Being protein rich, low-fat diet, it helps to reduce the calorie intake, essential for maintaining competitive weight. At the same time it provides all the energy and stamina for work and play to those who want to undergo any weight loss program.
