Spirulina: What Exactly Is It, and Why Is It Said to Be "Perhaps the World's Healthiest Food"?

Do you want an easy way to eat some of your recommended 4 to 9 servings of vegetables every day? Are you trying to protect yourself from the stress, pollutants, toxins and chemicals of our world?

Then you need to know about spirulina, perhaps the world's healthiest food!

The Oldest, Most Nutritious Food

Did you know that one of the world's healthiest foods grows in lakes? You might call it algae, but the aquatic plant spirulina packs a powerful nutritional punch.

Spirulina is a deep green aquatic plant and a nutritious dietary supplement. It grows in water with a high pH (alkaline) and after it has been harvested, you can buy spirulina in tablet, flake, powder and liquid forms.

The Aztecs used it as a food source in 16th century Mexico, and the people of the Kanem empire ate it over a thousand years ago in ancient Chad.

These days, NASA plans to make spirulina one of the first plants cultivated in space.

Spirulina is one of the world's oldest foods, but it is now considered cutting-edge nutrition!

Benefits of Super Spirulina Plus
Spirulina, the primary source of protein in Super Spirulina Plus, is an ancient super food. It is 60-70% protein by weight, a complete protein source, and rich in vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, & other nutrients. However, spirulina is difficult to digest and assimilate in its raw form, so this amazing powdered supplement is the optimal way to be sure you are getting all of the health benefits it contains!

Nutritional ComparisonExtensive research has shown it to be a truly remarkable food source, with its phenomenally high protein content and rich reserves of many vital nutrients, including vitamin B12 (essential for vegetarians). Spirulina also contains a formidable array of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements together with rare, unsaturated fats including gamma- linolenic acid.

Many of the densely concentrated nutrients in Spirulina help protect our bodies from stress and toxins. Scientific studies on animals and humans have shown that spirulina supports immune function, T-cell proliferation and antibody production. These studies have also shown that spirulina has anti-inflammatory properties, and helps deactivate the toxins in food.

Spirulina is known to contain phytonutrients with strong antioxidant properties which support cellular health by protecting the cell membranes and DNA from damage by reactive oxygen radicals. Many of the health benefits can be obtained from eating large amounts of certain fruits and vegetables. However, spirulina has all of these properties rolled into one.

Studies have shown that Spirulina can:

• Help your body fight infection • Inhibit allergic reactions • Destroy infected and cancerous cells • Lower your Cholesterol • Raise your HDL (good cholesterol) levels • Fight obesity
