Formula of Spirulina platensis natural micro-alga

en Spirulina Platensis

 

Spirulina platensis alga is one of the best natural vitamin complexes on our planet. It contains a wide range of biologically active substances, naturally balanced without any special outside intervention.

Unlike most of the present-day vitamin and mineral complexes with an artificial composition, all the revitalizing components of AlgaeLife spirulina reach the consumer in its natural state, providing good and seamlessly combined set of useful substances.

Nutrients and micro elements in the formula of frozen Spirulina

Spirulina is a protein product (60-70%), containing a small amount of fat (not above 5%) and low in calories (10 grams contain 36 calories). Moreover, Spirulina platensis includes: 

Amino acids and fatty acids

Amino acids and fatty acids

Состав натуральной микроводоросли Spirulina PlatensisAmino acids are the building blocks that are put together to make proteins, which in their turn form all the organs and glands, muscle tissue, ligaments, tendons, hair and nails; they are present in bones and liquids in human body. Considering this, the role of amino acids in healthy and adequate body functioning cannot be overestimated. The main value of spirulina is its vegetable protein, balanced according to all 18 amino acids, including 8 essential ones; this means the unsightly looking alga is a perfect factory, producing vital acids.

Especially noteworthy is gamma-linolenic acid, which can be derived only from breast milk and spirulina. Gamma-linolenic acid is essential for prevention and treatment of arthritis, sexual anesthesia and lack of female libido. It has also particular value in restoring male vigor. Combined with vitamin E, these components improve the function of reproductive organs, and facilitate the onset and normal course of pregnancy, and good lactation after the childbirth.

Color pigments

Color pigments

Состав натуральной микроводоросли Spirulina PlatensisSpirulina comprises three types of color pigments: carotenoids, chlorophyll A and phycocyanins, which help the body to synthesize a variety of enzymes, necessary for the metabolic processes regulation, and have potent antioxidant properties.

Phycocyanin (blue pigment) is the most important pigment for a human. It is the only currently known substance able to inhibit growth of tumor cells because of its antitumor activity. It isn’t found in any other product in the world.

Spirulina contains very important vitamins in optimal ratios. These are A, C, E, PP and group B vitamins. Moreover, they are not synthetic, as in pharmaceutical multivitamin preparations, but natural, synthesized by living cells.

The undisputed leader among spirulina vitamins is beta-carotene, which in the body is converted to provitamin A. Spirulina has the richest content of beta-carotene (its concentration is tenfold greater than in carrots). Furthermore, it has pronounced antitumor properties.

Spirulina is characterized by a high concentration of group B vitamins. It is especially rich in vitamin B12, necessary for normal hematopoiesis. This vitamin cannot be produced by higher plants (vegetarians should keep that in mind!) and human needs of this vitamin are covered mainly by eating meat. Vitamin B12 concentration in spirulina is by times higher than in beef and 3 times higher than in beef liver, which was considered to be the most B12 vitamined product. In addition, spirulina facilitates restoration of beneficial intestinal microflora that further contributes to normalization of processes, dependent on vitamin B12.

Minerals

Minerals

Formula of Spirulina platensis natural micro-algaMicro and macro elements, found in spirulina (Fe, Ca, Cu, Mg, Zn, P, Se) are strong bioregulators of normal body development. They all play a crucial biological role: interacting with amino acids, pigments, vitamins, they influence on hematopoiesis and tissue respiration processes, normalize the function of cardiovascular, nervous and other body systems.

Organic iron is a remarkable representative of minerals. Due to the high active iron content, spirulina is a good remedy to boost hemoglobin level during the treatment of iron deficiency and pernicious anemia. It increases the number of white blood cells. Indeed, leukocytes lose their functional ability without iron: they stop producing antibodies and hunting for microbes.

By this index spirulina is the Queen in the Plant Kingdom, it contains 100 times more iron than apples, radishes, cabbages and potatoes.

Spirulina is also rich in potassium and phosphorus. Both of these vitamins are vital substances found in all body tissues, especially muscles and brain, involved in all forms of metabolism, necessary for normal functioning of nervous system, cardiac muscle, etc.

A number of ingredients found in Spirulina can cause corrective and protective effect on molecular and cellular structures of the body that ultimately determines its curative effect in various diseases. During the analysis of amino acid composition of Spirulina attention was paid to the high content of glutamic acid, which, at the junction of energy and construction metabolism, corrects a large number of metabolic processes, primarily in the central nervous system, myocarditis that determines the effectiveness of Spirulina for treating diseases of central nervous and cardiovascular systems. Cardiotropic activity of Spirulina is associated with another amino acid - arginine that is a precursor to the formation in a body of nitric oxide, the factor that extends cardiac vessels.

In the implementation of Spirulina neurotrophic effects significant part belongs to amino acids, such as tryptophan involved in the synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, glycine, that has an inhibiting effect on a nervous system. Significant content of phycocyanin in spirulina determines its immunomodulatory activity, activation of lymphopoiesis and inhibitory effect on tumor development. 

Rich amount of beta-carotene in Spirulina apparently determined its strong anti-cancer effect.

Due to the high content in Spirulina of vitamin B12, digestible iron (mainly consisting of phycocyanin), cobalt, copper, it has implicit hemostimulating properties.
