The Power of Spirulina

March 15, 2016

 

What’s inside

Chlorophyll, protein, iron, Vitamin C, D, A, E, B12, all amino acids, folic acid, potassium, calcium

Spirulina is a natural algae powder.  

 

Health Benefits

 

 

Brain Health

 

Studies have been done that show components in spirulina have definite neuroprotective benefits and may have potential as an alternative drug therapy in aging related disorders such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease.  

 

At a university in India, researchers tested the effects of daily administrations of spirulina powder on rats who were induced with Parkinsonism. The different measurements taken throughout the study improved significantly after the use of spirulina powder.

 

“Both the body rotations (ipsilateral and contralateral) were found to have a statistically significant decrease by 34.26 and 52 % after treatment with spirulina (Twice a day) in spirulina treated lesioned group….Similar results were also seen in antioxidant levels which later on reached to the normal value. The levels of dopamine content had a statistically significant increase by 78.3 % only in case of spirulina with amantadine treated lesioned group”

 

 

Antioxidant

 

Spirulina has been found to have incredibly high levels of antioxidants. It has 4 times the ORAC (or antioxidant value) of blueberries!

Antioxidants are vital to fighting excess free radicals in the body that otherwise wreak havoc on cells and cause various diseases as well as premature signs of aging.

A study done to test the methanolic extracts of three different substances, including spirulina, found that spirulina has the highest synergistic rates (86.65%) and was effective in reducing nucleation and aggregation of calcium oxalate by 60%-80%.

 

Anti-inflammatory

 

Spirulina is a good source of gamma linoleic acid (GLA – an essential fatty acid) that is known for its anti-inflammatory properties.

Inflammation is a major cause/contributor to a number of cardiovascular and other chronic diseases.

Spirulina is being studied extensively for its ability to help with inflammatory diseases.

“The antioxidant and/or antiinflammatory activities of Spirulina have been demonstrated in a large number of preclinical studies…Although differences in study design, sample size and patient conditions resulting in minor inconsistency in response to Spirulina supplementation, the findings from human clinical trials are largely consistent with the hypolipidemic effects of Spirulina observed in the preclinical studies.”

 

Diabetes

 

Studies have shown that spirulina may be a good food for helping manage symptoms of diabetes.

A Korean study found that spirulina has beneficial effects on blood lipids, cholesterol and plasma of diabetic patients.

“This study provides the evidence for beneficial effects of spirulina supplementation on blood lipid profiles, inflammatory variables, and antioxidant capacity in Korean patients with type 2 diabetes. The results suggest that spirulina is a promising agent as a functional food for diabetes management.”

 

Reproductive System

 

Spirulina is believed to boost the reproductive system from having therapeutic effects on reproductive cycles as well as supporting actual fetal development and embryopathy.

In a study done at Nagaland University in India, researchers found that spirulina significantly improved reproductive performance in diabetic/hypoglycemic mice.

Another study done in Mexico found that Spirulina is safe to use for reproductive purposes and is not toxic to parents or potential infants.

“Spirulina is a rich source of protein and vitamins, especially vitamin B12, minerals, carotenoids, and phycocyanins. Its safety as food has been established through toxicological study (Salazar et al., 1996).”

 

Other Benefits

 

Spirulina is extremely high in chlorophyll, which is a natural detoxifier and cleanser that removes foreign material (heavy metals, toxins etc.) from the body. It is also believed to boost the immune system.

WHY DO YOU NEED THIS?
 

 

The best answer is vital nutrition. S.U.P.A.™ products aid the body by providing essential nutrients and antioxidants. S.U.P.A.™ makes vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants immediately accessible to the body. These have been shown to renew the liver and cleanses organs, tissue and brain cells.

 

Cells in the body require nutrients (i.e. vitamins and minerals) to function optimally. Many of these are referred to as micronutrients, to distinguish them from the macronutrient (Proteins, Carbohydrates and Fats) that you may already be familiar with. When cells receive adequate micronutrients, you feel energized and full. On the other hand, most processed/nutrition-poor foods provide calories from macronutrients, but are devoid of the essential micronutrients cells crave. Unfortunately many Americans eat diets, commonly known as the Standard American Diet or S.A.D. for short, that are calorically dense while lacking vital nutrients.

 

Never fear S.U.P.A.™ is here!!!

 

 

Let's look at a few more reasons why S.U.P.A.™ products are so powerful.
Just to name a few, they provide: 

 

(1) Fiber. 

This is the indigestible portion of plants. Diets high in fiber are associated with lower risks of heart disease, colon cancer, diabetes, and obesity.  

 

(2) Phytonutrients. 

These are a family of chemicals found only in plants that often give the color to vegetables but also confer many health benefits.

 

(3) Antioxidants. 

Many chemcials found in plants confer a resistance to the damage that can occur to the human body from oxygen and the process of metabolism. . 

 

(4) Omega-3 fatty acids. 

These essential fatty acids, including DHA and EPA, are taken into cell membranes and used for the internal workings and repair of cells throughout the body.
