Organic Spirulina - A miracle created by nature filled with protein, vitamins and minerals, which supports overall health for centuries
Spirulina (Arthrospira Platensis) is a blue-green freshwater algae, known mostly for centuries in Asian cultures. Its name comes from the spiral characteristics of this superfood - forms a helical spiral microscopic fibers that are so small that the human eye can not detect. The green color comes from chlorophyll and blue color from exotic pigment phycocyanin.
Organic spirulina is a natural product with high nutrition value and it's very popular not only among fitness and healthy lifestyle enthusiasts, but vegetarians as well, because it provides a source of vegetable protein and vitamin B12.  It belongs to foods with very high protein content with almost 65%, which is the highest protein concentration observed in all foods. It's a complete protein source, i.e., containing all eight essential amino acids and nonessential amino acids (in the absence of fat and cholesterol).  Spirulina protein is also easier to absorbe than animal protein. Each gram of spirulina protein is about 4 times easier to absorbe than protein from beef. Additionally, Spirulina cell walls don't contain cellulose, so 85-95% is digestible in the human body. It facilitates the passage of food through the digestive system, thereby reducing the pressure on the system. It also supports healthy bacteria in the digestive tract and helps to improve nutrient absorption.
Research shows that Spirulina can improve lipid metabolism and glucose , while reducing fat in the liver, and protects the heart . It also has anticancer effects and acts as an antioxidant. It also has the ability to strengthen the immune system , actively supports cell regeneration, accelerates healing and recovery from illness. It is rich in vitamin A , which is extremely important for eye health. We are recommended to eat carrots for the same reason, but Spirulina has 10 times higher concentration of vitamin A per gram compared with carrots. Moreover, it is very effective in complying with reduction diet and weight loss, as an appetite suppressant, while it feeds your body all the necessary nutrients.
