Spirulina grown in tanks right here in Florida is packed full of a whole host of amazing natural vitamins including A, K1, K2, B12 and some of the harder to source minerals such as iron, manganese and chromium.
It has 2800% more beta-carotene than carrots. Then there are other nutrients as well that are less famous but of equal importance including phycocyanins and super oxide dismutase (SOD). Astaxanthin being one of its greatest nutrients, which functions in energy production, and making your mitochondria work harder. It’s going to be the new natural way to boost performance. Add this daily drink of Spirulina to our vitamins to improve health and longevity
Studies show most of the Spirulina in the world is grown in inner Mongolia, which is a province of China, and that spirulina has been heated and dehydrated and the nutrient content of spirulina is not taken into consideration.
We at the Aging Younger Clinic are not fans of anything from China. We get our Spirulina grown and organically produced right here in Florida.
We have always looked where our spirulina was produced as there is a major gulf between good spirulina and great spirulina and that is more to do with the Quality of the air, water and nutrient and culturing methods – out of country is likened to growing spirulina in a heavily polluted environment in a raceway or pond, with the cheapest range of nutrients/minerals, than growing a culture in a pristine place with the highest quality nutrients/minerals in a sealed system.
Spirulina, a blue-green algae which is believed t be the first form of plant life on Earth nearly 3.5 billion years ago. It has been harvested and consumed by several ancient cultures including the Aztecs and Mayans for thousands of years. A naturally rich source of protein, vitamins and minerals. It is considered a staple in remote areas today.
Since the 1960’s, this dynamic spiral-shaped micro-algae has been extensively tested by scientists around the world and has been hailed by international organizations as one of the “greatest super foods on Earth.” With 1 kilogram of Spirulina being equivalent to 1000 kilograms of assorted vegetables and has been found by NASA researchers to be an ideal compact food for astronauts ins space.
Compared to other sea vegetables, spirulina has been shown to be more easily digestible and have greater nutrient bio-availability. Spirulina contains up to 70 percent protein by weight and with all of the essential amino acids, the quality of spirulina’s protein rivals that of the best protein sources.
It is one of the highest, most digestible sources of “complete” protein. A complete protein contains all essential amino acids.
Essential fatty acids, including hard-to-find gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) for your heart and joint health
Minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, selenium, and zinc
Sulpholipids and the antioxidant enzyme Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) all of which are in a bio-available form
Promoting normal immune response
Promoting optimal gastrointestinal flora
Supporting optimal digestion
Helping to maintain normal blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range
Helping to maintain normal blood sugar levels that are already within the normal range
Promoting increased seasonal comfort
Supporting heavy metal detoxification
Promoting optimal cardiovascular health
Supporting normal immune system activity
Curbing hunger and promoting a feeling of increased energy
Of all the phytopigments found in spirulina, there is one in particular generating much interest among scientists for its phycocyanin content, the vibrant phytopigment that gives spirulina its natural bluish tint. Studies show that phycocyanin may have multiple health benefits, including support of brain and heart health, protection against oxidative stress, and the promotion of a healthy immune system.
Evidence suggests bilirubin (hemoglobin breakdown) can protect tissues against free radical-caused oxidative damage.
In fact, slightly elevated bilirubin blood levels have been linked to normal healthy cardiovascular function. Phycocyanin is found only in spirulina. And it’s plentiful, too – phycocyanin makes up about 16 percent of spirulina’s total weight. Plus, phycocyanin may play a major role in stem cell regeneration, especially in bone marrow and blood cells.
Phycocyanin supports the creation of the red blood cells that oxygenate your body, plus scientists have discovered that the phycocyanin in spirulina supports white blood cell production and it is the white blood cells that make up your cellular immune system.
In our quest to procure the freshest form of this alternative, nutritious protein, we found the Spirulina Farm that has it’s own proprietary process that carefully harvests the Spirulina and then fresh freezes its delicate cells. This process preserves the nutritional content in its truest, most bioavailable form avoiding the damaging high temperatures required in the dehydration process. Dehydration will degrade the vitamins, phycobiliproteins and amino acids present in fresh frozen Spirulina Ice.
