Spirulina

Did You Know…

… that spirulina is considered the most nutrient-dense food on the planet—and has been shown to be effective in the treatment of cancer, high cholesterol, allergies, anemia, elevated blood sugar and many other diseases?

Algae doesn’t have a particularly appetizing ring to it, but “superfood” that benefits total body health sure does.  There are more than 40,000 types of algae, but one stands out as an exceptional food source.  In fact, you could not just survive, but thrive, on it and water alone!

One of the oldest living organisms on earth, spirulina is an edible variety of fresh water, blue-green algae that is much like sea vegetables such as chlorella, kelp, nori, kuma, arame and wakame.  What sets spirulina apart is that it is more bio-available, meaning it is more readily absorbed and digested by the body.

Spirulina has no shortage of fans.  In its September 5, 2005 issue, AARP Magazine ranked spirulina the #1 superfood, and the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization promotes spirulina as a beneficial remedy for worldwide malnutrition.  Dr. Mercola calls spirulina “Nature’s nearly “perfect” whole food.”

Considered the most nutrient-dense food on the planet, spirulina...

Stabilizes and maintains healthy blood sugar levels
Beautifies skin and hair

Throw Away Those Vitamin Supplements and Fortify with Whole-Food Nutrition Instead!

Supplementing with lab-manufactured vitamin tablets is not the most ideal way to boost your nutrient intake.  Spirulina provides a healthy, whole-food alternative that is readily absorbed and digested by the body so that you are truly consuming the values indicated on the labels.  It is also easy to find online or at your local health food store.  Add a tablespoon of water, juice or blend it with some fruit and veggies as part of a healthy smoothie.

You’ll be benefitting from an extraordinary concentration of vitamins and minerals, such as iron, potassium, magnesium, copper, calcium, chromium, manganese and vitamin B12.  In fact, spirulina contains more vitamin B12 than any other food source on the planet!  Vitamin B12 supports healthy nerve tissue and rejuvenates damaged nerves, protecting against conditions such as fibromyalgia.  Spirulina also contains the superior enzyme superoxide dismutase, which prevents and repairs cell damage.
