General information about Spirulina

Spirulina is a primitive multicellular microalgae that appeared on Earth 3.5 billion years ago. With its ability to photosynthesize by absorbing twice as much biomass as carbon dioxide (CO2) and to bind atmospheric nitrogen (N).

It has contributed to the formation of the modern earthly atmosphere, enriching it with abundant oxygen. Biologically it is characterized as a thermophilic organism (optimum 35c) and an alkalophile (PH 9-11). These conditions are ensured in the Geothermal field of Nigrita (THERMA), with the thermo-mineral waters. The high photon flux of the region contributes to high rates of photosynthesis with the production of super-excellent quality spirulina.

Historically, the Spanish conquerors of Mexico in the 16th century observed the Aztecs collecting fine spirulina with thin nets from lakes and turning it into a cake, a major component of their diet. Today this process is done systematically on Lake Texcoco.

A similar procedure is applied in Chad, Africa on Lake Kossoron, where spirulina is a major component of local populations, especially for pregnant women, and in local medicine. After World War II, German and French professors studied spirulina in detail. In 1967 spirulina was declared "the excellent dietary source of the future" by the International Association of Microbiologists. More recently, NASA has selected spirulina as the main source of food for astronauts.

Beneficial properties

The Spirulina you bought is a tiny plant that has grown from a "seed" from one of Germany's largest universities that has the largest algae bank in the world. As a plant, it is an amazing organism that exists and reproduces for 3.5 billion years, to which we owe our existence (first production of O2).

It is the only plant that is grown in tanks - circular tracks in search of food and solar energy in the form of photons, of certain wavelengths of the light spectrum. Before it reaches your hands, it has "run" about 40 kilometers, the size of a marathon. The different elements provided by spirulina are completely water-soluble and completely digestible, offering extra energy, supplementing deficiencies in the daily diet, restoring the right metabolic balance.

It increases the performance in mental and physical work, sports and the mood for competitive distinction in the spaces where every modern person moves. According to an official publication of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (Circular 1034 FIMA / C1034 (En), 155N 2070-6065 of 2008), spirulina is recognized as a supplementary cure in many diseases or health problems.

The most important is the strengthening of the immune system by Phycocyanin, which drastically reduces blood lipids, fights the feeling of "fatigue" by increasing the levels of immunoglobulin A (IgA) and M (IgM).

Scientific research has shown that

  • The protein in spirulina benefits the growth and rejuvenation of cells. More than half of the dry weight of spirulina is made up of protein, making it an excellent dietary supplement, and replacing cholesterol-rich meats and high-fat dairy products. With 10 grams of spirulina every day, 70% of the body's minimum daily requirement of iron can be met. It also contains more than the required minimum amount of vitamins A, B, D and K. Helps reduce bad cholesterol levels in the body, which can help prevent cardiovascular disease, stroke, or hardening of the arteries. It also lowers blood pressure.
  • One of the biggest benefits of spirulina is that it is the richest food in beta carotene, as it contains ten mixtures of carotenoids. All of these carotenes work together throughout the body to promote antioxidant protection against cancer. Natural carotenes found in vegetables and algae, such as Spirulina, have been shown to have the most anti-cancer and antioxidant power, as opposed to synthetic forms of beta-carotene.
  • Due to its very high content of organic, readily assimilable iron, spirulina directly helps in the correction of anemia, low hematocrit and menstrual syndrome.
  • Spirulina also benefits the body by helping with anti-aging. The concentration of β-carotene in spirulina is ten times higher than that found in carrots, which is excellent for good eye health and good eyesight in general. Spirulina is a very powerful antioxidant for the human body with invaluable nutritional value. . It is an alternative to taking iron supplements, which can be difficult for the body to absorb.
  • Spirulina is naturally rich in iron, magnesium and trace elements to help fight common deficiencies in minerals. It is the best natural source of vitamin B-12 that promotes healthy tissues and nerves in the body. It is an excellent supplement for people who follow a vegetarian diet and may need extra nutritional support. It also helps fight free radicals, which cause damage to cells in the body, as well as fight cell degeneration.
  • In experiments conducted in Germany and Japan, it has been shown to lower cholesterol, triglycerides and low-density lipoproteins in the blood, acting beneficially in the fight against atherosclerosis.
  • Spirulina dry biomass contains up to 2% γ-linoleic acid (GIA), a percentage equal to that of breast milk which helps promote the healthy development of babies. This high rate also helps with arthritis, obesity, cardiovascular and zinc deficiency syndrome
  • It benefits people who suffer from a lack of essential nutrients due to poor nutrition as it is easily digestible and thus helps the body absorb all the nutrients necessary for humans.
  • Helps stimulate the flora of the digestive system facilitating the process of digestion and the normal functioning of the intestine. Healthy flora is essential for good health, it helps prevent infections and the absorption of nutrients from the foods we eat. It also acts as a natural cleanser for the body helping the body release heavy metals and toxins that can accumulate over time.
  • Current studies are investigating the positive effect of spirulina on cancer prevention (leukemia), the protection of people undergoing radiotherapy and antiviral therapy to help people living with the AIDS virus.
  • Proteins, vitamins and other minerals improve all physical performance, especially in athletes by increasing their levels of endurance and at the same time stimulating their immune system. It also helps increase their muscle mass and reduces the feeling of hunger by helping to maintain a healthy weight. In weightlifters it increases the capacity of the lungs without affecting blood pressure
