Algae

Spirulina is a form of blue green algae (cyanobacteria) occurring naturally in tropical and subtropical lakes as a similar relative to the algaes Chlorella and Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (true Blue Green Algae).

It is a complete protein, containing all essential amino acids and contains an unusually high protein content for a non-animal source: 55-77% of dry weight.

It contains B1, B2, B3, B6, B9 and possibly some B12 (though this is contestable), which play a vital role in cell metabolism, healthy skin, muscle tone, cell growth and nervous system function.

High levels of vitamin C, D and E

High iron content: a tablespoon a day can eliminate iron anaemia.

A rich source of potassium and also contains calcium, chromium, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, sodium and zinc.

Rich in beta carotene that can overcome eye problems caused by vitamin A deficiency

It is the only food source, except for breast milk, that contain substantial amounts of the essential fatty acid GLA that helps to regulate hormone levels.


Medical/Health advantages

It can be administered to children with no associated risks.

Medical studies have been undertaken in potentially advocating its use in the treatment of HIV infection, fibromyalgia, hay fever, herpes, high cholesterol, arsenic poisoning, stroke severity, age-related memory and learning decline, liver protection and long term weight maintenance.

A human study over 6 weeks in which 36 volunteers took 4.5 grams a day, showed conclusively lower total cholesterol and lowered systolic and diastolic blood pressure.

Can be used to treat radioactive poisoning, such as in Belarus.
