MicrOrganics Spirulina Pacifica Powder : Spirulina is a microscopic blue-green alga; it is a vegetable plankton whose cells form the shape of a coiled spring - thus the name`Spirulina´, which means `little spiral´. It grows naturally in warm and highly alkaline lakes in tropical areas. Per acre, its protein yield is 20 times that of soybeans, 40 times that of corn, and 200 times greater than that of beef cattle.
Spirulina contains complete balanced protein (including all eight essential amino acids), is easily digested and is quickly absorbed. It is high in beta-carotene, chlorophyll, vitamins, and GLA (gamma linolenic acid), but low in fat, sodium, and cholesterol. Spirulina helps to satisfy hunger naturally, yet is low in calories. In short, Spirulina is effectively a multivit - but from nature, not a factory - and therefore a far superior alternative to any synthetic product.
Spirulina also contains a total of nine important vitamins and over 14 minerals which are chelated, or bonded, to the amino acids, making them easier for the body to assimilate.
Scientific research shows that Spirulina has benefits in five important health areas:
1. Strengthening the immune system and reducing cancer risks with better antioxidant protection.
2. Supporting cardiovascular health and lowering cholesterol.
3. Improving gastrointestinal and digestive health.
4. Enhancing natural cleansing and detoxification.
5. Combating anaemia, diabetes, eczema, asthma and arthritis.
Pure air, pure water from the depths of the Pacific Ocean, and the latest in aquaculture drying and tabletting technology make it possible to create this amazingly nutritious and energising, completely natural and highly absorbent superfood.
One heaped teaspoon a day is all you´ll need to pump up your body with more concentrated nutrition than any other whole food -- all day long.
There are absolutely no additives to Spirulina Pacifica powder.
Powder can be shaken into fruit juice, blended with fruit (try ripe papaya with a dash of lime) or stirred into yoghurt, taken like this it tastes great.
We DON´T recommend you take it with plain water!
One heaped teaspoon of spirulina is equivalent to about 6 tablets, or one serve.
