Spirulina 100% is a natural dietary supplement created with Spirulina, a species of blue-green algae. Born on earth over 3.5 billion years ago, Spirulina is said to be the oldest plant on earth.Since it is nutritionally rich both in quality and quantity, Spirulina is attracting more and more attention as a promising natural food.
Spirulina has 5 Major Nutrients:
1. Full of beneficial proteins
Spirulina contains 3 times the amount of protein found in beef and 2 times the amount in soy beans. You can get the excellent quality proteins in Spirulina which help to boost the white blood cell that fights and prevents infection.
2. Chlorophyll as “green blood”
Spirulina contains abundant amounts of natural pigments such as chlorophyll and light blue phycocyanin.
Chlorophyll is a well-known pigment that is often called “green blood” because it becomes the raw material of the blood in our bodies. This is why chlorophyll is very effective in the treatment of anemia.
Chlorophyll not only detoxifies acetylaldehydes, the cause of hangovers, and histamines related to allergies, but also eliminates bad breath and body odor, alleviates constipation, frostbite and aids in lowering cholesterol.
3. Chronic shortages of vitamin B12
Spirulina contains generous amounts of vitamin B12. There is a tendency to overlook this vitamin in our diets, but it is vital in the functioning of red corpuscles and nucleic acids. Disorders arising from deficiencies of vitamin B12 include virulent anemia, diabetic nervous disorders, trigeminal neuralgia, liver disorders and impaired memory.
4. Beta carotene, the key to preventing cancer
Beta carotene is gaining attention as an effective nutrient in the prevention of cancer. The amount of carotene required for a person in the prevention of cancer is 5 – 15 milligrams a day. In terms of vegetable consumption, this is the equivalent of 200g of green and yellow vegetables and 100g of light colored vegetables. For people who find this level of intake on a daily basis difficult, Spirulina is recommended as a nutritional supplement. Spirulina has 50 times the amount of carotene as chlorella, 10 times that of carrots and 60 times that of spinach.
5. Linoleic acid and linolenic acid in the adjustment of cholesterol
Spirulina contains rich amount of linoleic acid and linolenic acid which are attracting attention particularly for their role in controlling cholesterol in the bloodstream. By dissolving and flushing excess cholesterol from the bloodstream and preventing high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries, they inhibit carcinogens and the spread of cancer promoted by excess cholesterol.
Linoleic and linolenic acids are substances that cannot be produced by the body, so if they are not supplemented through our dietary habits, a deficiency will occur.
WHY IS OUR SPIRULINA DIFFERENT?
Aside from being the NO.1 Brand in Japan, our Spirulina contains 10% of Spirulina cultivated with Deep Ocean Water from sea floor off the coast of Kumejima in Okinawa. Unlike the water at the surface of the sea, deep ocean water remains at a consistent temperature of about 7°C degrees and is pure, since there are no pollutants from chemical substances on land and no bacterial pathogens that consume the nutrients in the sea water. The deep ocean water is therefore superior in terms of the abundant nutrients it contains. It contains about 100 times more magnesium and calcium (hardness), in particular. Minerals, especially magnesium, copper and other components, are extremely important nutrients playing a role in the reduction of active oxygen in the body and making the body resistant to sickness. Thus, the Spirulina cultivated from 100% Deep Ocean Water absorbs the nutrients originating from the source of life grow up to 4 or 5 times its normal size and revitalizes the body as well as suppresses the aging process in humans.
Our Spirulina has also obtained the GMP Safety certification and therefore you will not have to worry about the purity or safety of our Spirulina.
Spirulina is particularly effective for people who:
* tire easily and do not feel 100% well
* have little motivation
* are recovering from an illness
* are on a diet
* catch colds easily
* have a tendency to be anemic
* are fussy about food
* eat at irregular times
* do not eat adequate green or yellow vegetables
* who smoke or drink a lot of alcohol or coffee
I Gastrointestinal diseases and Spirulina
Spirulina is an alkali food. It not only contains large amounts of good quality nutrients but their rate of digestion and absorption by the body is extremely high. In addition, the chlorophyll in Spirulina protects the stomach and intestine linings that have suffered injury.
II Anemia and Spirulina
Anemia is a condition resulting from insufficient iron. However, if iron is not taken with protein and vitamin C, its digestion and rate of absorption are low. Spirulina, on the other hand, not only contains more iron than liver, it also contains large amounts of proteins and blood-building chlorophyll. The digestion and absorption rate of iron is also excellent, so spirulina is very effective in combating anemia.
III Diabetes and Spirulina
Spirulina contains large amounts of vitamin B1 which improves the metabolism of sugars, vitamin B6 which creates insulin and potassium which assists in the excretion of insulin and proteins lacking in people with diabetes.
IV Liver ailments and Spirulina
The liver performs a very vital role in our bodies by breaking down, detoxifying and storing nutrients carried there by the blood. The most important nutrients for the liver are proteins and vitamins. Proteins make up the greater part of the liver and vitamins assist in its functions. An insufficiency of proteins and vitamins results in impairing or bringing to a stop the functions of the liver. Spirulina is a food with an abundance of proteins of superior quality and vitamins.
V Dieting and Spirulina
A method of dieting with Spirulina is to take it 30 minutes to one hour prior to meal time. In that period before eating, Spirulina absorbs water and expands, suppressing the appetite and helping to prevent overeating.
