SPIRULINA & CHLORELLA
SUPER GREENS FOR SUPER HUMANS
Greens. The proclaimed enemy of many a child, greens are one of the most important parts of any well-rounded and nutrient-rich diet. Unfortunately, it is difficult to ingest adequate amounts of these nutrient-rich greens for several reasons. Salads, now ubiquitous, are often not much more than a bit of cellulose (fiber) and some water, making them a pleasant vehicle for the delicious toppings, but offering very little in terms of the important alkaline-forming vitamins and minerals. Vegetables, once canned, frozen, or cooked also lose a great percentage of their nutritional value. Both spirulina and chlorella are forms of algae which provides a powerful and well-balanced nutrient profile.* Excellent for helping the body detoxify, assisting with a strong immune system, and rounding out a well-balanced diet, these easily absorbed tablets also alleviate the strong taste that comes with most powdered or liquified green food supplements.*
- Historically well known food source for humans and animals.
- An inexpensive protein supplement and immune system support.
Spirulina & Chlorella
Spirulina and chlorella are two types of consumable algae that serve as excellent sources of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants.* As a dietary supplement, spirulina and chlorella are approximately 55% protein, contain all the essential amino acids, and are primary sources of omega-3 fatty acids. As one of the world oldest food sources, this 50/50 blend of consumable algae has incredible detoxifying and immune-assisting properties that make it one of the best-known superfoods available.*
Boost liver health*
Chlorella supplementation has been suggested support the health of the liver.* Chlorella has a protective effect on the liver by supporting liver health.*
DIMINISH OXIDATIVE STRESS
A review of three clinical studies by Virginia Commonwealth University cites a variety of health benefits from the consumption of chlorella. A double-blinded, placebo-controlled study showed conserved plasma anti-oxidant nutrient status when supplemented with chlorella (fig. 2).* The protective effects of spirulina and chlorella support its use as component of a healthy diet.*
Chlorella has direct immuno-enhancing effects on the cell types responsible for recognizing foreign particles and fighting challenges. Eight weeks of chlorella supplementation helped the body to support the activity of the immune system in healthy humans (Fig 3.).* While chlorella exerts its effects through stimulation, spirulina has separately been shown to support a healthy inflammation response.* The combination of these two nutrient sources may help strengthen the immune system's.*
Algae: The Original Superfood
Blue-green algae has a long history as a valuable food source for ancient civilizations, such as the Aztecs, yet the array of benefits of Spirulina and Chlorella on the human body has only recently been uncovered. Packed with anti-oxidant compounds, spirulina and chlorella can help the body aid the liver in detoxification and assist in supporting the immune system to help maintain optimal health.* Daily incorporation of this superfood is a highly recommended component to an enhanced dietary nutrient profile.*
