Spirulina, often referred to as Arthrospira platensis, is a blue algae that is widely grown in fresh and salt water. As a potent superfood, it is one of the best researched and well-known dietary supplements due to its high phytonutrient content and powerful health-promoting benefits such as enhancing immune, liver, brain and circulatory functions.

Blue Spirulina Extract Benefits and Uses

Blue Spirulina is a brilliant-blue colored algae that lives in a wide array of moist areas. It consists of the dried mass of either one of the Athrospira platensis or Arthrospira maxima plants and has been part of the human diet for centuries. It is commercialized as a nutraceutical for its potent antioxidant and immune support properties.

Chemically, Spirulina is composed of essential components that contribute to the production of energy. These include high levels of protein, vitamins A, minerals such as Iron, polysaccharides, as well as essential fatty acids. Phycocyanin, the main active compound that gives Spirulina its bright blue-green pigment, is responsible for its potent antioxidant properties.

What’s more is, unlike most plants, Spirulina lacks cellulose, the main component of plant cell walls that is indigestible by humans, making Spirulina easy to absorb. Anecdotally, Spirulina may have immune-stimulating effects. It is well understood that deficiency of nutrients is responsible for changes in immunity, which manifests as changes in production of T-cells, secretory IgA antibody response, cytokines and NK-cell activity. The above studies suggest that Spirulina may modulate the immune system by its role in covering nutritional deficiencies.

Scientifically Tailored Ingredients

Arthrospira platensis (Blue spirulina) is a type of filamentous cyanobacteria that is typically one of two or three algal species found in common spirulina supplements. The cyanobacteria species grows in brack water and in ocean waters in the warm tropics and is often used as a supplement because of its rich protein content (53 – 68% of the dry weight), which contains a full spectrum of amino acids.

It also contains high concentrations of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), which are rich in Omega-3 lipids. Further, the photosynthetic bacteria species boasts a healthy amount of vitamin A and iron, and lacks cellulose, allowing it to be easily digested by humans.

– Supports a strong, healthy immune system
– Extremely nutrient dense – vitamins and minerals
– Powerful antioxidant
