Marine Spirulina, a concentrate of micronutrients

Spirulina is a blue-green micro-alga that has been consumed for millennia for its high nutritional properties. The Aztecs called it Green gold.

The true value of Spirulina lies in its high content in micronutrients packed in such a small volume.spiruline

It has a high content in:

  • Beta-carotene (or pro vitamin A): a precursor of vitamin A transforms into this vitamin depending on the needs of the body with no risk of overdose as is the case with vitamin A supplements; it is a potent antioxidant;
  • Vitamin B12 highly absorbable and indispensable to vegans;
  • Iron and anti-anaemia trace elements;
  • Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA): essential fatty acids from the omega-6 family that play a key role in the regulation of cellular mechanisms. Very difficult to obtain directly from food.
  • Enzyme SOD (super oxide dismutase) and phycocianin, a bleu pigment that combats oxidative stress and the effects of ageing.

It is this rather unique composition that makes spirulina a ‘super-food’.

It is interesting to associate it with fruit and raw vegetables, also with fatty fish or colza, walnut oil… as it does not contain any vitamin C and oméga-3 fatty acids.

Recommended daily intake:

Dr Jean Dupire, specialist of spirulina, recommends as follows:

  • 3 g /day for healthy individuals,
  • 5 g /day in case of fatigue or sickness
  • 10 g / day during periods of high stress, competition…

Everyone can benefit from spirulina, as a preventive measure to maintain a good health condition. But also throughout the entire lifespan, when needs in micronutrients are increased: during child growth, students, overworked adults, pregnant women, seniors, convalescents…

What is Marine Spirulina?

Spirulina is a cyanobacterium that is associated with microalgae as it carries out photosynthesis. It is spiral-shaped and appeared on Earth 3.5 billion years ago. Thanks to the energy it collects from light this bacteria is capable of transforming carbon dioxide into organic matter using a complex process that produces oxygen. Traditionally collected on the […]
