Five Things You Need to Know About Green Superfood Spirulina

spirulina green superfoodWith a potential global food crisis looming, the search for a “complete” food that we can easily grow and use is as important as ever. Thankfully, the search was already completed thousands of years ago. The answer may just be spirulina, the green superfood.

Spirulina is a blue-green algae, which may not sound very appetizing, but it is one of the oldest forms of life and therefore one of the oldest food sources on earth. It is also packed with benefits for humans. In fact, without spirulina, it’s likely that life on earth wouldn’t be as far along as it is today. Cyanobacteria (the class spirulina belongs to) was one of the earliest organisms to produce oxygen into the atmosphere.

Nutrient Dense

You could live on nothing but spirulina and water. Spirulina is a powerhouse, hence it is known as a green superfood. It is a 60-70 percent complete protein, so it has all 8 essential amino acids and 10 non-essential amino acids to support your health. It packs more protein than soybeans or chicken. Its other nutrients include GLA (gamma linolenic acid – an omega-6 fatty acid), Vitamin B12, iron, chlorophyll and phycocyanin. This last one is found only in blue-green algae like spirulina and has been proven in scientific trials to increase survival rates in mice with liver cancer.

Control Candida

Candida is a kind of yeast that lives in the body and can both cause and worsen the symptoms of several autoimmune diseases like Crohn’s, Lupus and Fibromyalgia. Spirulina encourages and supports the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut, which can help keep candida overgrowth under control.

Keep Blood Pressure in Check

High blood pressure increases risk of heart attack and stroke. It makes the heart beat faster and harder, wearing it – and the body – out quickly. However, with good diet and exercise, blood pressure and heart rate can be helped immensely. Spirulina, that green superfood, has been shown to bring blood pressure down in both men and women, even when they made no dietary changes or made any effort to exercise more. So, simply add your nutritional supplement packed with spirulina to water or juice daily. It’s as simple as that.

Radiation Poisoning

Radiation from electronics, chemicals, processing plants, and just from the atmosphere or water is ever-present and may even be increasing. Elevated radiation levels and poisoning can be treated and/or prevented with spirulina as well. It was even used to help victims of the Chernobyl accident. No wonder it is called a superfood.

Highly Digestible

Because of its cellular structure, spirulina is primed for easy absorption by the human body. It passes through easily and its nutrients are absorbed faster and more effectively than most other foods. Of course, many people find the taste unpleasant, which is why spirulina is included in vegetable-based superfood supplements.
