BENEFITIAL EFFECTS OF SUPER SPIRULINA
Spirulina stimulates, strengthens and boosts the immune system. It removes heavy metals from the body, dead cells, dead membranes and toxins, which accumulate in the pores of the colon over the years, and reduces the nephrotoxicity and hepatotoxicity of any taken medicines. Phycocyanin accelerates the production of the cellular immune system, helping to increase the production of stem cells in the bone marrow, reducing the risk of infectious and autoimmune diseases. These unique effects are due to the phycocyanin, chlorophyll, vitamin A (beta-carotene) and polysaccharides included in the composition.
Super Spirulina significantly slows the aging process by neutralizing the free radicals formed in the body due to chemical and radiation pollution, unbalanced diet and stress. Super Spirulina is the only certified spirulina by University of Thessaly, Biochemistry & Biotetechnolology Dept, Larissa-Greece having an anti-aging effect and best antioxidant (high content of phenolic acids and tocopherols) – its antioxidant blue and green pigments become accessible to our cells and thus we are better protected from the ultraviolet radiation at a cellular level.
The complete protein content in super spirulina (70%), its level of absorption 91.5% (higher than the meat proteins, only 20% of which are being absorbed) and other valuable nutrients improve the physical and mental activity not only of athletes but also of pupils, students and intellectual people. It increases the lung capacity by weight training (bodybuilders), without any negative effect on their blood pressure. It also helps to increase muscle mass and to maintain a healthy weight. Often not only athletes but also people doing sports suffer from lack of results, chronic fatigue and stagnation. Some even take medicines (hormones) to overcome it. Super Spirulina is a natural organic product and allows our body to normalize the metabolism by optimizing the levels of T3 and T4 without harming the thyroid gland, as often happens when taking medicines and prohibited substances.
Most athletes participating in international competitions use spirulina to improve their results. It is the best substitute of cholesterol-rich meats and high-fat dairy products.
Super Spirulina is excellent for all people who want to control their weight, to keep fit and improve their vitality. It is the best natural food for people who want to reduce their weight and keep in good shape (an excellent source for healthy and balanced diet). Spirulina is particularly suitable as an addition to therapy of diseases, such as anorexia. It is also suitable for vegans and vegetarians because it contains twice as much protein than soy.
One of the most significant benefits of Super Spirulina is its extremely high content of beta carotene (more than 10 mixed carotenoids). The natural carotenes, which are found in some vegetables and Super Spirulina, have strong anticancer and antioxidant effect, unlike the synthetic forms of beta-carotene. The concentration of beta-carotene in Super Spirulina is ten times higher than that found in carrots.
Super Spirulina is the best source of gamma linoleic acid (GLA), (polyunsaturated omega-6 fatty acid) which is essential for the physical and mental development, possesses an anti-inflammatory action needed to strengthen the nervous system. It participates in the formation of prostaglandins, which are necessary for the prevention of arthritis, autoimmune and cardiovascular diseases, obesity and zinc deficiency syndrome.
In the first days of taking spirulina you may already observe significant changes in the motor function of the stomach. It is suitable for people who have digestive problems and are prone to constipation. Super Spirulina effectively suppresses the reproduction of pathogenic microflora and stimulates the settlement of beneficial lacto- and bifidobacteria and prevents the development of dysbiosis.
For ulcers, gastritis and colitis, as well as in cases of indigestion or intolerance to certain foods, the administration of Super Spirulina may quickly and easily provide the body with the necessary nutrients in a concentrated form, without burdening the gastrointestinal tract. Due to the lack of cellulose cell walls, it does not require any chemical or physical processing to become digestible.
Research conducted in Germany, Japan and Crete shows that Super Spirulina reduces cholesterol, triglycerides and low density lipoproteins in the blood, thus preventing atherosclerosis, hypertension, coronary heart disease, etc. It also increases hemoglobin and oxygen content in blood. Current research studies the beneficial effects of spirulina for cancer (leukemia) prevention, protection of patients undergoing radio- and chemo-therapy and due to its antiviral activity, it helps people affected by HIV.
Due to the high content of organic, non-toxic and easily absorbed iron, Super Spirulina positively affects anemia, low hematocrit and premenstrual syndrome. It contains 50 times more organic iron than raw spinach and is an alternative to the administration of iron supplements, which are difficult to absorb.
Our body needs additional stimulation to be able to fight off all viruses and bacteria constantly attacking us. We need to ensure the consumption of healthy and nutritious food, rich in vitamins and minerals. Naturally clean and easily accessible products, such as Super Spirulina, are definitely a better alternative than the synthetic supplements.
Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of Spirulina
The generation of reactive oxygen species in all organisms is associated with the damage of biologically relevant molecules such as DNA, proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. These highly reactive species include the hydroxyl radical, the superoxide anion radical, hydrogen peroxide and singlet molecular oxygen as well as hypochlorite, the nitric oxide radical and peroxynitrite. A variety of biological processes and diseases e.g., inflammation, photobiological effects, antimicrobial defence, radiation damage, carcinogenesis, neurodegenerative diseases, atherosclerosis and aging involve reactive oxygen species. Our organism processes
various defence mechanisms against the highly reactive oxygen species including the action of endogenous or exogenous antioxidant molecules. Exogenous antioxidants of dietary origin include vitamin C, vitamin E, carotenoids and polyphenols.
The antioxidant properties of Spirulina are mainly related to the strong antioxidant and free radical scavenging activities of phycocyanin, although other antioxidant constituents contribute to the total antioxidant potential of the microalga. In this respect, it has been shown:
The potent peroxyl radical scavenging activity of phycocyanin. In this respect, the covalently linked chromophore phycocyanobilin is involved in this antioxidant activity,
The scavenging of peroxynitrite by phycocyanin. Peroxynitrite is an inorganic toxin of biological importance, which can be generated in vivo from nitric oxide and superoxide,
The strong selective inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) by phycocyanin, with a very low COX-2/COX-1 ratio (0.04). The capacity of phycocyanin to inhibit COX-2 is much higher than those of the non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs celecoxib and rofecoxib, the well-known selective COX-2 inhibitors; thus, anti-inflammatory
properties of phycocyanin reported in the literature may be due, in part, to its selective COX-2 inhibitory property, although its ability to scavenge free radicals may also be involved,
The scavenging of hydroxyl and alcoxyl radicals by phycocyanin (phycocyanobilin moiety is the main part of phycocyanin involved in scavenging hydroxyl radicals), and (e). The scavenging of stable free radicals by a variety of Spirulina extracts.
It has been also demonstrated that phycocyanin exhibits antihyperalgesic activity by suppression of iNO synthase and COX-2 induction Cell-free and cell-based assays were also used to examine the antioxidant and antiinflammatory properties of Spirulina preparations. The results showed inactivation of free superoxide radicals as well as an anti-inflammatory effect which is related to the
reduction of metabolic activity of neutrophils.
A limited number of clinical trials have been also carried to evaluate the antioxidant and/or anti-inflammatory activities of Spirulina in healthy humans or patients with type 2 diabetes. Intake of Spirulina (7-8 g/day for 8-16 weeks) has shown significant decrease of serum interleucin IL-6 levels and rise in plasma IL-2 concentrations,
increase in superoxide dismutase activity and reduction of the oxidative marker MAD (malondialdehyde), thus demonstrating the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities of Spirulina in vivo.
Animal experiments have shown that Spirulina is able to protect the organism from drug-induced oxidative damages (nephrotoxicity and cardiotoxicity), from metalinduced oxidative damages (lead, cadmium, mercury) and from hepatotoxin-induced oxidative damage (hepatotoxicity from carbon tetrachloride) as well as from neuronal
oxidative damages. In the last case it has been proposed that phycocyanin may be useful for the treatment of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s,
Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases. In this respect, among various food extracts tested as aggregation blockers of amyloid-β for Alzheimer’s disease therapy,
Spirulina extract was the most active. Phycocyanobilin chromophore of phycocyanin that constitutes up to 1% of the dry weight of spirulina, has recently been shown to be a potent inhibitor of NADPH oxidase. Some of the central physiological effects of phycocyanobilin may also reflect inhibition of neuronal NADPH oxidase, which is now known to have a modulatory impact on neuron
function, and can mediate neurotoxicity in certain circumstances. The possibility that orally administered phycocyanobilin could reach the brain parenchyma in sufficient concentrations to influence microglial function and to preserve a healthful function of the central nervous system has been proposed.
Among the various bioactivities of Spirulina polysaccharide extracts, a strong inhibitory effect on inflammation-induced corneal neovascularization can also be included. These experimental results suggest the potential use of Spirulina polysaccharide extracts in the treatment of inflammatory neovascularization-related corneal diseases.
The chemopreventive potential of Spirulina is to a certain extent associated with its immune modulation and antioxidant properties. Human studies on anticancer effects of Spirulina or Spirulina extracts have shown complete regression of oral leukoplakia
(a precancerous lesion) in pan tobacco chewers and the activation of the human innate immune system. Specific chemopreventive actions of Spirulina major components reported include:
(1) The induction by phycocyanin of apoptotic death in histiocytic tumor AK-5 cells and in human chronic myeloid cell line K562 as well as the expression of CD59 protein in Hela cells which is accompanied by a decline of the multiplication activity of the cells,
(2) The antiproliferative effects of Spirulina water extracts on human liver cancer cells HepG2 and the inhibition of tumor invasion and metastasis by spirulan,
(3) Concerning GLA, it has been shown that it is the most promising polyunsaturated fatty acid in the treatment of human malignant gliomas and other advanced solid malignancies. Limited open label clinical studies showed that intratumoral injection/infusion of GLA is safe and effective against malignant gliomas, while a recent phase 2 GLA clinical trial demonstrated faster clinical response in patients
with breast cancer receiving GLA in addition to the synthetic nonsteroidal antiestrogen tamoxifen. In the last case, GLA seems to function as a novel selective modulator of estrogen receptor.
The chemopreventive effect of Spirulina against animal liver cytotoxicity and carcinogenesis induced by nitrosamines has also been reported, suggesting the potential use of Spirulina in chemoprevention of cancer
Another important promising application of phycocyanin and phycobilin constituents of Spirulina for cancer treatment is photodynamic therapy (PDT). PDT is a selective treatment modality that affects mainly the target tissue, in which, light, O2, and a
photosensitizing drug are used in combination. The selectivity is based on a difference in the photosensitizer concentration between normal and tumour tissue and on the directing of light into the tumour tissue. After injection, the photosensitizer accumulates in the target tumour tissue and then the light directed to the tumour
tissue (laser light can be directed through fiber optic cables) activates the photosensitizer molecules, which in turn produce reactive oxygen species, in the presence of oxygen. These reactive species are responsible for the damage of vital structures and functions of tumour cells with minimal damage of healthy tissue.
Among photosensitizers used for PDT, the most important molecules are tetrapyrrole derivatives, which include phycocyanin, and phycocyanobilin derivatives.
It has been demonstrated from in vitro and in vivo animal experiments that Spirulina contain bioactive molecules with antiviral activities. The ability of viruses to infect specific cell types is due in part to the property of viral proteins known as viral attachment proteins to specifically interact with particular cellular receptors of cell surface. Therefore, any interference affecting the binding between viral and cell proteins will impair the virus infection.
Major constituents of Spirulina with antiviral activity are certain
polysaccharides such as sulfated polysaccharides (calcium spirulan and polysaccharides related to spirulan) and a high Molecular Weight polysaccharide not containing sulfate groups (Immulina), thioglycolipids, allophycocyanin and a carbohydrate-binding protein (CBP).
In vitro studies with calcium-spirulan have shown effective antiviral activity against a host of enveloped viruses such as Herpes simplex virus-1 (HSV-1), human cytomegalovirus (HCMV), measlevirus, mumpsvirus, influenza A virus and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1). Spirulina sulfolipids and the protein CBP were effective against HIV viruses, while allophycocyanin against enterovirus 71. In vivo animal studies have shown that Spirulina extracts were active against HSV-1 while they interfered with the neuroinvasiveness property of HSV-2.
An intriguing epidemiological finding concerning HIV/AIDS incidence and prevalence has been reported after analysis of the epidemiological data together with alga consumption. It has been revealed that the incidence rate of HIV/AIDS is low in regions with high alga consumption (3-13 g/day) as in Chad.
Thus, a hypothesis has been proposed that a regular consumption of Spirulina could prevent HIV infection and reduces the viral load among those infected.
It has been suggested that in order to promote survival in epidemics of potentially lethal influenza we have to target the enzyme NADPH oxidase, as this may be a major source of influenza-evoked oxidant stress in lung epithelial cells as well as in phagocytes attracted to lung parenchyma.
This can be achieved by administering phycocyanobilin, richly supplied by spirulina, as it can show NADPH oxidase inhibitory action.
Major function of the immune system in humans and animals is protection against diseases by identifying and killing pathogens and tumor cells. For these purposes, two types of immune responses have evolved: the innate and the adaptive immune responses.
The innate immune system comprises certain cells and mechanisms that defend the host from infection by other organisms in a non-specific manner, that is, the cells of the innate system recognize and respond to a pathogen in a generic way without conferring long-lasting or protective immunity to the host.
The major functions of the innate immune system include: phagocytosis, inflammation, complement activation and induction of cell death. The main classes of phagocytes are neutrophils, dendritic cells and macrophages. The chemical messengers produced by the above or other cells (for example cytokines) play an important role in the initiation of an inflammatory response. The killing of cancer cells or virus-infected cells is accomplished by natural killer (NK) cells.
The adaptive immune system is composed of highly specialized cells and processes that eliminate or prevent pathogenic challenges by becoming stronger and faster in subsequent encounters of a particular antigen. The cells of the adaptive immune system are lymphocytes B and T. B cells produce antibodies, which neutralize pathogens or stimulate their elimination by other cells. T cells, which are classified into helper T cells and cytotoxic T cells, are responsible for providing help to macrophages in killing pathogens, in inducing B cell antibody production and in eliminating infected cells by initiating apoptosis.
In vitro or in vivo experimental results performed with animals or humans with whole Spirulina cells, Spirulina extracts or Spirulina constituents (polysaccharides, phycocyanin) have shown that Spirulina is very efficient in stimulating a variety of immune functions, including phagocytosis, production of cytokines and other
inflammatory mediators, NK cell activity, B cell antibody production and T cellproliferation.
Despite its ability to induce proinflammatory cytokines, Spirulina has also been shown to significantly inhibit anti-inflammatory responses in a variety of animal models, including models of rheumatoid arthritis, colitis, and IgE-mediated local and systemic allergic reactions. These results may indicate that Spirulina possesses
immunomodulatory activities, enhancing suboptimal immune responses, while dampening immune system hyperactivity.
It has been shown recently that consumption of a commercial Spirulina extract containing high Molecular Weight polysaccharides (Immulina®), by healthy male volunteers caused an age-dependent temporary enhancement of adaptive immune
responses. Moreover, it has been shown that consumption of Spirulina water extract by healthy male volunteers activates the innate immune system by augmentation of interferon-γ (IFN-γ) production and NK cytotoxicity.
Further clinical studies with humans indicate that short-term oral consumption of Immulina®, which has been proven to contain as a principal active component
Braun-type lipoproteins, can impact both gut mucosal and systemic immune functions and suggest that it may be useful for the enhancement of innate immune function for the prevention of infections in elderly and in other immune-suppressed individuals. Moreover, this polysaccharide and lipoprotein containing Spirulina extractcan be used for complementary therapy supporting optimal NK cell activity in cancerpatients
Effect of Spirulina on Exercise Performance
Great physical loads and their intensity impose strict requirements on sportsmen’s nutrition. It must be highly efficient, well balanced and meet human body’s demands.
Therefore, nutritional requirements of an athlete involve highly efficient natural products and balanced concentrates of bioactive substances. These molecules improve the response of the human body to unfavorable external stimuli by enhancing physical capacity, stimulating the immune system and modifying hormonal action.
It is already known that the Greek and Cuban Olympic teams consume Spirulina daily during their training and before competition. Dietary advantages of Spirulina supplementation have been proved experimentally with young sportsmen volunteers. These results have shown that consumption of Spirulina protects the skeletal muscle of athletes from oxidative damages, which are induced mainly from
the production of free radicals during exercise, while it postpones the time of exhaustion during exercise, promotes the recovery from sport fatigue and improves athlete’s sports ability. In this respect, positive changes in blood morphological and biochemical indices were observed.
Moreover, investigations carried out on endurance-training sportsmen showed that a 14-d administration of Spirulina exerted a positive effect on blood morphological composition indices and its biochemical changes and confirm the positive effect of Spirulina food supplement on the quantitative parameters of immune system. In another study with moderately trained human males, it has been shown that Spirulina supplementation induced a significant increase in exercise performance, fat oxidation, and glutathione concentration and attenuated the exercise-induced increase in lipid peroxidation.
Cholesterol-Regulatory and Hypolipidemic Properties of Spirulina
A large number of experimental and epidemiological data have shown the connection between the incidence of cardiovascular disease and a patients diet rich in fats and cholesterol. It is thus important to emphasize that consumption of Spirulina as a
dietary supplement may contribute, in part at least, to an overall strategy to manage this serious health problem.
A number of human clinical trials have been performed to evaluate the hypolipidemic activity of Spirulina including healthy volunteers and patients with ischemic heart disease, type 2 diabetes and nephrotic syndrome, and elderly subjects.
Consumption of about 1-8 g Spirulina/day for 4-16 weeks have
shown significant decrease in LDL-cholesterol and total lipids, free fatty acids and triglycerides level as well as reduction of systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
Patients with ischemic disease, and diabetes have shown also increased levels of HDL and a decrease of the LDL/HDL ratio. Moreover, investigations with animal models have shown also that spirulina intake can cause the reduction of hypercholesterolemic atherosclerosis, associated with a decrease in levels of serum
total cholesterol, triglycerides and LDL-cholesterol and an elevation of HDLcholesterol.
Thus, spirulina may be beneficial in preventing atherosclerosis and
reducing risk factors for cardiovascular diseases.
Spirulina has shown also therapeutic effects in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease as evidenced by ultrasonography and aminotransferase data, accompanied by hypolipidemic action and protective effects on hyperlipidemia and oxidative-stress induced by a toxic metal in animal liver and kidney.
Effect of Spirulina on Diabetes and Obesity
Initial experiments with animals have shown that Spirulina water extracts efficiently decreased blood glucose. Similar results were obtained with diabetic animals after Spirulina administration where Spirulian tends to bring the initial abnormal levels of blood glucose and insulin towards the normal.
Clinical studies with diabetics have shown significant decrease of blood glucose after Spirulina administration for 21 days (2g/day). Moreover, diet supplementation in Type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with Spirulina (2g/day for 4 months) resulted in significant reduction in fasting and postprandial glucose, glycated hemoglobin as well
as in glucosamine and uronic acid levels, indicating a lower risk for coronary disease, In the same study, a significant reduction of triglycerides, total lipids, total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol was observed.
Concerning the effect of Spirulina consumption on human obesity it has been observed that dietary supplementation with 2.8 g of Spirulina 3-times/day over 4 weeks resulted in a statistically significant reduction of body weight in obese outpatients.
Spirulina and Allergic Inflammation
Allergic inflammation involves the same types of mediators as other inflammatory responses but they are induced by IgE antibodies binding to mast cells. As a result the release of inflammatory agents is triggered and among these molecular mediators histamine plays a central role.
On the other hand, anaphylaxis is a severe systemic allergic reaction caused by IgE-mediated release of various mediator
molecules. It is already known from in vitro studies and experiments with animals that total Spirulina or Spirulina extracts as well as phycocyanin do not enhance sensitization to allergens. In contrast, administration of Spirulina for a long period of time was decreased the production of antigen specific IgE antibodies and histamine, while the inflammatory reaction to allergen exposure was also decreased.
Studies (double blind with placebo) with patients with clinical history of allergic rhinitis receiving Spirulina 1-2g/day for 3-6 months have shown that the patients presented considerable decrease of interleukin-4 (it plays significant role in IgE antibodies production) produced by blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) after stimulation with
phytohemagglutinin. In parallel, consumption of Spirulina significantly improved the symptoms and physical findings including nasal discharge, sneezing, nasal congestion and itching.
Spirulina and Asthma
Bronchial asthma is a chronic inflammation of lungs and the most commonrespiratory disorder in which the airways are reversibly narrowed.
During attacks the smooth muscle cells in the bronchi constrict and the airways become inflamed and swollen.
In a clinical study carried out for a period o 4 months, the long-term effect of Spirulina supplementation in patients suffering from bronchial asthma was explored by studying the pulmonary function and the level of IgE antibodies of the patients.
Asthmatics received either only specific medication (bronchodilators and antiinflammatory drugs) or medication and Spirulina (1g/day).
It was revealed that consumption of Spirulina significantly decreased the level of IgE antibodies while the pulmonary function was improved. These results suggest that Spirulina can be introduced along with medicine as a therapeutic and dietary supplement in the treatment of asthmatics and thus to reduce the need of drugs in the treatment of asthma.
Spirulina and Iron Deficiency Anemia
Iron deficiency anemia is the common type of anemia known also as sideropenic anemia. It occurs when the dietary intake or absorption of iron is insufficient and hemoglobin cannot be formed. In premenopausal women, the principal cause of iron deficiency is blood lost during menses.
In both cases higher dietary requirements for iron is needed in order to prevent iron deficiency.
Several studies were undertaken to investigate the effect of supplementation of Spirulina powder on hemoglobin levels of anemic adolescent girls and preschool children (3-6 years).
After Spirulina administration for 1-2 months a significant
improvement of blood hemoglobin levels was observed.
Spirulina and Malnutrition
According to the United Nations World Health Organization (UNWHO) the real challenge today is malnutrition-the deficiency of micro-nutrients that no longer allows the body to ensure growth and maintain its vital forces (55).
In an effort to support the eradication of malnutrition by a food fortification approach through Spirulina, several international initiatives have been undertaken.
An Intergovernmental Institution for the use of Microalgae Spirulina against Malnutrition (IIMSAM) was formed (http://www.iimsam.org/) under multilateral treaties recognized in the UN Treaty Series 37542/43. IIMSAM was granted a
Consultative Observer Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), in keeping with Resolution number E/2003/212.
Italy is the recognized host of the Treaties. Member states of Treaties that constitute IIMSAM include several countries from Africa.
Antenna Technologies, a non-governmental organization based in Geneva, Switzerland, works with local NGOs and International Associations to fight malnutrition by developing the tools necessary for the local production of Spirulina (http://www.antenna.ch/en/about.html).
In an effort to analyse the influence of Spirulina on the nutrition rehabilitation of undernourished children a research study was conducted in Burkina Faso with 550 undernourished children of less than 5 years old. The results of this research indicated that Spirulina plus traditional meals (millet, vegetable fruits) or Spirulina
plus Misola (local bouillon, mixture of millet, soya and peanut) synergically favour the nutrition rehabilitation better than the simple addition of protein and energy intake
In a similar study involving 84 undernourished children HIV-infected and 86 undernourished children HIV-negative, the impact of an alimentary integrator composed of Spirulina and traditional meals (millet, vegetable fruit) on the nutritional status of the children was examined. Rehabilitation with Spirulina showed an average weight gain of 15 and 25g/day for HIV-infected and HIV-negative children
The level of anaemia decreased during the study in all children, but
recuperation was less efficient among HIV-infected children.
Spirulina supplementation was also successfully used in a trial to treat children suffering from chronic vitamin A deficiencies. 1g of Spirulina per day reduced the incidence of visual symptoms on these children from 80% to 10%.
The general conclusion from the above studies is that Spirulina is a beneficial food supplement for undernourished children.
Antibacterial and prebiotic effects of Spirulina
Various organic solvent and aqueous extracts of Spirulina contain a large variety of micromolecular and macromolecular constituents which express antibacterial activity against a variety of pathogenic microorganisms such as Bacillus subtilis,
Streptococcus aureus, Streptococcus faecalis, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus aureus, Proteus vulgaris, Klebsialla pneumonia, Candida albicans, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhinurium, Mycobacterium smegmatis and
Spirulina biomolecules with antimicrocrobial activity-include several volatile components and fatty acids. Purified C-phycocyanin from Spirulina platensis was shown to be able to markedly inhibit the growth of drug resistant bacteria Eschericia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus.
Prebiotics are non-digestible food ingredients that stimulate the growth or activity of bacteria in the digestive system, which are beneficial to the health of the body. In this respect it has been found that Spirulina biomass increase the rate of in vitro development of several strains of microorganisms present in fermented dairy
products (Lactococcus, Lactobacillus, Streptococcus, Bifidobacterium) and in parallel it expresses beneficial effect on their survival. Moreover, it has been demonstrated that Lactobacillus population in the human gastrointestinal tract is increased by
Radioprotective effect of Spirulina
Studies with experimental animals have shown that ethanolic extract of Spirulina induced significant decrease of γ-radiation-induced damages to bone marrow cells most possibly due to a DNA-stabilizing effect of certain components.
The same Spirulina extract protected also human progenitor cells of granulocytopoiesis from Xray radiation damages in vitro. Moreover, feeding phycocyanin extract from Spirulina to experimental animals exposed to X-rays blocked the inhibition of several metabolic processes. It has also been proved that a sulfated polysaccharide
from Spirulina shows radiation protective activity.
Spirulina’s health benefits for child victims of Chernobyl radiation have been documented. The children of Chernobyl suffered radiation poisoning from eating food grown on radioactive soil. Their bone marrow was damaged, rendering them immunodeficient. Radiation damaged bone marrow cannot produce normal red
or white blood cells. The children suffered from anaemia and allergic reactions.
Results from the Minsk, Belarus Institute of Radiation Medicine (1990-1991) have shown that ingestion of Spirulina (5 g/day for only 20 days) reduced urine radioactivity levels by 50%, while T-cell suppressors and beneficial hormones rose
Unpublished results from a 1993 report confirmed 1990-91 research. Theirconclusions suggested that spirulina decreases radiation dose load received from food contaminated with radionucleides, Cesium-137 and Strontium-90
The Belarus Ministry of Health based on various tests during 1990 concluded that spirulina promotes the evacuation of radionucleides from the human body without side effects. The Ministry considered that ingestion of Spiuline was advisable for the treatment of people subject to radiation effects, and requested additional donations
from private Spirulina production Companies.
A Russian patent was awarded in 1994 for the use of spirulina as a medical food to reduce allergic reactions from radiation sickness. The patent was based on a study of 270 children living in highly radioactive areas. They had chronic radiation sickness and elevated levels of Immunoglobulin IgE, a marker for high allergy sensitivity.
Thirty five were prescribed 20 tablets per day (about 5 grams) for 45 days.
Consuming spirulina lowered the levels of IgE in the blood, which in turn, normalized allergic sensitivities in the body.
Research continuing through 1999 in Belarus showed immune building, normalization of peroxide lipid oxidation and detoxifying effects of spirulina supplements in children and teenagers. It has been considered that some of the beneficial aspects of Spirulina in radiation effects may be due to its ability to bind to heavy metals and
radioisotopes via protein and polysaccharide components. The available evidence seems to indicate that Spirulina has a potential to be used as an adjunct to other means of radiation protection.
WHAT IS SPIRULINA
Spirulina – the scientific name of which is Arthrospira – species of free-floating photosynthesizing, filamentous cyanobacteria, belonging to the ancient class of blue-green spiral algae which inhabit the planet since the emergence of life on Earth. As a biological organism it is defined as a thermophilic (optimum 35 ° C) and alkalophilic (pH 9-11) one. These conditions are most suitable in the geothermal field of Therma (Nigrita, Greece) where Super Spirulina is produced, with geothermal water. The high flux of photons in the region contributes to the high rates of photosynthesis for the production of high quality spirulina. Therefore, Super Spirulina is considered the purest and quality 100% natural organic product.
The unique feature of Super Spirulina is that it contains so many important nutrients some of which the human body cannot procure through food. For these reasons spirulina is called ” the food of the future”. Spirulina is also called a natural survival concentrate!
Historically, spirulina, in the form of dried algae, was known to the ancient Maya and Aztecs, who strengthened and rejuvenated their bodies with it. In 1967, Spirulina was declared an “excellent food source for the future” by the International Association of Microbiologists (Sasson, 1997). Both NASA and the European Space Agency offer and approve spirulina as one of the most important foods to be cultivated during long space missions (a major source of food for astronauts). Nowadays the healthy menu of Japanese and Americans is unthinkable without 3-5 grams of spirulina. Moreover, in the US the use of spirulina became popular among people with excessive weight, since even a small amount of it regulates hunger and provides the body with all the necessary nutrients. It is also preferred by astronauts and climbers, militants, athletes, tourists, etc.
COMPOSITION OF SUPER SPIRULINA
Organic Super Spirulina consists of exceptional microorganisms that provide nutrients and other biologically active substances to prevent the onset of nutritional deficiencies, act favorably on different structures and functions in the body and contribute to maintaining good health. They contain more than 100 nutrients, of which: 70% Protein (highest concentration than any other food), all essential amino acids, vitamins (A, E, B1, B2, B5, B6, B9, B12 – in particularly large quantities), phytonutrients, Tyrosine (the youth elixir), xanthophylls, phycocyanin (a potent immune booster with a strong anti-cancer effect), carotenoids (more than 17 different beta-carotenoids), minerals (iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, selenium, manganese, zinc and many others), zeaxanthin (the most important antioxidant to improve eyesight, superoxide dismutase (one of the most important health promoting metabolic enzymes and antioxidants), omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, gamma linoleic acid (GLA), powerful probiotic compounds , Chlorophyll, polysaccharides, pigments, etc. Spirulina is also called “Planet’s breast milk”, due to the content of gamma linoleic acid (GLA), which is contained in the largest quantities in breast milk and spirulina, promoting the healthy development of babies and building their immunity.
RECOMMENDED DAILY DOSE
It should be taken with a glass of water (200ml). For prophylactic purposes 2 tablets after breakfast and 2 tablets after lunch. For busy lifestyle and stress: 3 tablets after breakfast and 3 tablets after lunch. For active athletes: 5 tablets after breakfast and 5 tablets after lunch. For losing weight: 4 tablets before breakfast, 3 tablets before lunch and 3 tablets before the evening meal (with 500 ml of water).
No contraindications and interactions with medicines are known.
Super Spirulina is NOT a medicinal product, it is a natural organic and naturally dried blue-green algae, the powdery structure of which is pressed into tablets and in blister packs for maximum effect without loss of valuable substances.
Imagine a natural, pure organic product containing 50 times more organic iron than raw spinach, more carotenoids (25 times more provitamin A) than carrots, 3 times richer in vitamin E than raw wheat germ and having protein concentration, which is three times greater than soy, red meat, fish and chicken.
