Spirulina is a type of spiral-shaped blue-green algae that grows in lakes and oceans, thriving especially well in the salty waters of Central and South America. A dietary staple of ancient civilizations including the Mayans, Aztecs and some African tribes, the simple single-celled algae is believed to date back to the origins of life on earth.**
Today, this blue-green algae is regarded as one of the most popular health “superfoods” due to its far-reaching, nutrient-dense profile. It supplies a broad range of amino acids, antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, chlorophyll, proteins, fatty acids, polysaccharides and nucleic acids (RNA and DNA). It has been suggested that, due to its high protein content and diverse nutritional profile, spirulina might be considered an ideal food to cultivate in order to combat global hunger.**
With its broad-spectrum nutrition, spirulina is associated with multiple health-enhancing bioactivities in the body. Its high antioxidant activity is excellent for fighting the damaging effects of free radical-induced oxidative stress. Research suggests that it may optimize immune health, modulate inflammatory responses, and help with seasonal allergies. Studies also point to its possible cardioprotective attributes, including benefits for circulation, healthy blood lipid levels, and normal blood pressure. Blue-green algae is believed to enhance digestion, and has been investigated as a possible nutritional therapy to assist with balanced blood sugar and healthy weight management. It is believed to support energized and vibrant overall health and well-being.**
Because of its array of beneficial compounds, spirulina is the subject of significant and steadily growing research. It has even been singled out by NASA as an ideal supplement for astronauts.**
Spirulina supplement products consist of the dried or freeze-dried blue-green algae and are available in capsule, tablet or powder form. Spirulina supplements are usually sourced from algae grown under controlled conditions that yield a pure, safe algae product.**
