What is Spirulina?:
Spirulina is truly one of Nature's richest Superfoods. It is a pure, natural, whole, nutrient dense, microscopic, edible, blue-green algae packed with complete and
absorbable protein, chlorophyll, antioxidants and essential vitamins and minerals. It is a balanced whole food that contains over 100 synergistic nutrients that are easily assimilated. It is literally at the bottom of the food chain - a concentrated "nutrient soup" from which all life can be nourished. Spirulina is a power packed green food that has served as a significant food source of the Mayan and Aztec peoples (who were known to mix it with cacao - yum!) and Africans. Certainly one of the world's healthiest foods!
Health Benefits of Spirulina:
Dr. Oz, the renowned professor at Columbia University, and a regular guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show, recommends Spirulina as one of the most important anti-aging nutritional supplements. Spirulina plays an important role in slowing down the aging process through its antioxidant/anti-inflammatory effects. It is also a perfect source of protein and is a completely absorbable wholefood vitamin and mineral supplement. It satisfies hunger because it fulfills the bodys nutritional and biochemical needs. And it is low in sodium, fat, starches and calories, so you won't gain weight! Optimize your vitality, endurance, strength and whole system health!
Concentrated Protein Source: The highest concentrated source of protein! 60% vegetable protein. Easy to digest due to the lack of hard cellular walls.
Complete Protein Source: Contains all 8 essential amino acids in the proper ratios, and eighteen amino acids in total. 375% more protein than tofu. A gram of spirulina is 4 times more absorbable than a gram of meat.
Best Source of GLA: Gamma-linolenic acid. An anti-inflammatory essential fatty acid necessary for a healthy nervous system.
Vast Spectrum of Antioxidants: loaded with antioxidants like natural beta carotene, mixed carotenoids, zeaxanthin, chlorophyll, phycocyanin, gamma linolenic acid (GLA), riboflavin, a host of other phytonutrients. Protect against harmful UV sunlight, pollution, and environmental stress.
Minerals: High in essential minerals and trace minerals. Easily assimilated by the body as the minerals are chelated with the amino acids.
Iron: 2300% more iron than spinach. Delivers oxygen to cells throughout your body. Improves energy levels. Promotes good health during growth phases. Prevents anemia.
Beta Carotene: 3900% more beta carotene than carrots. A source of Vitamin A that your body cannot produce on its own.
Vitamin K: An essential nutrient that must be obtained from sources outside the body.
Calcium: 300% more calcium than whole milk.
Chlorophyll (the green pigment): Blood builder and purifier. Supports liver and kidney function to detoxify your blood. Chlorophyll is deeply cleansing and alkalizing. Protects from UV radiation at a cellular level.
Phycocyanin (the blue pigment): Phycocyanin works like a magnet to help remove heavy metals and pollutants from your body. Induces production of more stem cells found in bone marrow.
nucleic acids: rna and dna
Beyond Certified Organic:
Spirulina Crunchies are pesticide and herbicide free, are grown naturally, do not contain any genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and are never processed with any synthetic chemicals. In order to preserve the utmost purity, Spirulina Crunchies are not produced in a certified organic manner. Our growers found that since spirulina is grown in water rather than soil, certified organic farming constraints are not suited for producing a superior, nutritionally dense, pure product. Feeding spirulina an organic fertilizer creates a "dirtier" culture medium housing much higher levels of bacteria (which then requires the spirulina to be heated at high temperatures to be sterilized). Other brands of certified organic spirulina have been consistently tested to reveal a much higher heavy metal content than that of non-certified organic spirulina. As a fertilizer, our grower uses only pure, naturally occurring potassium nitrate (aka salt peter) from a mine in Chile. This insures safe levels of bacteria and a completely vegan product.
