Getting to Know the Power of Spirulina

The algae known as spirulina is one of the most fascinating of all the so-called superfoods. For many centuries, indigenous peoples have known of the power of spirulina, but to the rest of the world it remained a well kept secret until only recently.

Spirulina has a number of benefits not often seen in a single food, including a very high protein content and a strong chlorophyll content as well. This combination of chlorophyll and protein give spirulina an incredibly powerful benefit, and a rare combination of health effects.

Spirulina is also one of the worldís richest sources of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, and it this amazing algae is thought to be among the most nutrient dense of all foods. Spirulina is thought to have the ability to strengthen the immune system, reduce cholesterol levels, maintain the balance of good and bad cholesterol, support good cardiovascular function, improve the health of the gastrointestinal tract, speed the cleansing of toxins from the body and provide strong antioxidant and anticancer benefits for those who eat it on a regular basis.

One of the things that makes spirulina so unique among foods is its concentration of nutrients. Not only is the algae high in protein, but it is also a rich source of vitamin B12, beta carotene and iron. Spirulina also contains high levels of the phytonutrients which are thought to play an important role in the prevention of cancer and heart disease.

In addition to all these benefits, the chlorophyll in spirulina is thought to act as a natural detoxifying agent, helping the body to speed the cleansing of toxins from the body. This reduction of body toxins, combined with its ability to boost the immune system, make spirulina one of the most powerful foods in all the world.

Of course those who blanche at the idea of eating seaweed can get all the important nutritional benefits of spirulina through the many commercial supplements made with the algae. When choosing a spirulina supplement, it is important to choose one with a high concentration of this important algae, and to choose only those supplements which are made to exacting standards of quality.
