Spirulina is often called the most nutrient-dense plant food on the planet. Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina is known by many as the best Spirulina in the world.
What is Spirulina?
Spirulina is a microscopic spiral shaped, blue-green vegetable algae that has been used as a significant food source for centuries. Spirulina is highly digestible and the most nutritious, concentrated whole food known to mankind. It contains a rich spectrum of available proteins and is the richest source of beta-carotene and mixed carotenoids in the world. It is rich in GLA, important B complexes and natural vitamin E, along with Calcium, Iron and other essential chelated minerals and trace elements. Spirulina is natures richest wholefood source of the entire anti-oxidant spectrum including: Beta-carotene, Vitamin E, Selenium, Methionine, Cysteine, Super Oxide Dismutase, Glutathionine Peroxides, Copper, Manganese, Zinc, B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, and B-6.
It is the only source of Phycocyanin, an immune stimulant. Spirulina is nature’s richest wholefood source of biochelated organic iron. It’s 58 times richer than raw spinach and 28 times richer than raw beef liver. Spirulina is nature’s richest source of vitamin E. It’s 3 times higher than raw wheat germ, and its action in the body is 49% greater than that of synthetic Vitamin E. Spirulina is nature’s richest source of Beta-carotene (Pro-vitamin A). It’s 25 times higher than raw carrots! Beta-carotene in Spirulina is completely non-toxic, even in mega doses. Spirulina is nature’s richest source of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). It’s 3 times richer than evening primrose! The polyunsaturated oils in Spirulina contain 21% GLA (GLA is the active ingredient in evening primrose oil – evening primrose oil contains up to 10% GLA.) Spirulina is a rich wholefood source of chlorophyll – equal to that of alfalfa or wheat-grass. Spirulina is nature’s richest wholefood source of complete protein. Spirulina Pacifica is a select strain of Spirulina Platensis developed over many years of continuous cultivation in Hawaii. Strain development and perfection started in 1984. The cultures grown by Cyanotech in Hawaii represent the oldest continuously cultivated and harvested Spirulina in the world. Hawaii’s year-round growing conditions and integrated culture management system have made this possible. Spirulina Pacifica has been extensively analyzed by molecular biologists at the University of Hawaii who identified unique enzymes not previously found in other strains of Spirulina Platensis.
Why should I use it?
Doctors and Scientists recommend we eat five servings of fruits and vegetables a day. In real life, this does not often happen. Spirulina Pacifica can fill the gaps by supplying more concentrated vegetable nutrition than any other food. Spirulina provides a wide range of delicate phytonutrients with very significant health benefits. Phytonutrients include antioxidant carotenoids known for giving fruits and vegetables their orange and yellow colors. Nutritionists recommend increasing our intake of phytonutrients to protect against the harmful effects of UV sunlight, pollution, and environmental stress.
