What is Spirulina?

Spirulina, Arthrospira platensis, is a fresh water micro-vegetable that gets its name from its microscopic spiral shape. Spirulina has been eaten by many cultures throughout history and if you could go back in time to visit the Aztecs you would find them using ropes to skim spirulina from the surface of lakes and ponds. They would then set the algae out to dry and make small, nourishing superfood cakes.

How Spirulina Crunchies™ are Made

Our Spirulina Crunchies™ are grown in a pristine region of beautiful Costa Rica. The algae is raised in covered pools of pure, nutrient rich water where paddles keep the water moving in a circular motion to avoid stagnation. Each step of the process is carefully monitored to avoid contamination from impurities. Once the desired amount of spirulina is reached in a pool, the water is poured across fine screens that separate the algae from the water. It is at this point that the process for Spirulina Crunchies™ becomes unique. Usually the algae would be dried at high temperatures and powdered or even spray dried. Instead, our spirulina is ground into a paste and is then pressed into little strands, like spaghetti. The strands are then gently air-dried at low temperatures. It is this simple but revolutionary process that creates the extraordinary crunch and flavor of Spirulina Crunchies™.

Benefits of Spirulina and Eating Right

Chlorella - the World's Most Powerful Superfood

Spirulina and Chlorella belong to a family of tiny organisms, many millions of years old, and generally classified as algae. They are the two most commonly, commercially cultivated algae produced for today’s health food and health supplement market. Many claims have been made for the truly remarkable  beneficial properties of these two organisms, as health supplements and as ‘neutroceuticals’.

If all the hype is to be believed, they could be the answer to many of today’s nutrition induced health problems and diseases.

They could be the instant fix for all our ills!  

Too good to be true? 

We’ll see.

What are Algae?

Algae are classified according to colour.  Spirulina is one of the blue – green algae, while Chorella is one of the green algae. There are other important differences between Spirulina and Chlorella.  More later. The colour pigment is important , however, in the health claims, as these elements are said to be responsible for helping to boost the immune system and to help remove toxins from the body.

Spirulina and Chlorella – Ancient History

Spirulina is many millions of years older than Chlorella and scientists believe that it came into being at a time when plants and animals began to differentiate.  As a result Spirulina has no hard cell wall characteristic of plants, though like a true plant it grows and spreads by photosynthesis.

Chorella, on the other hand, does have the hard cell wall and is therefore much further along the evolutionary road to being a plant than is Spirulina.  It too survives by the process of photosynthesis.

Spirulina and Chlorella – How do they grow?

All plants, algae and even some bacteria use photosynthesis. Animals breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide.  Photosynthesis is the process by which a organism containing the green pigment  chlorophyll, changes chemicals and nutrients into food, using carbon dioxide and sunlight,  and giving off oxygen as a waste product. Plants clean up the world, as well as feeding us.

Spirulina and Chlorella – What’s in them?

Both Spirulina and Chlorella contain very high levels of protein, wide variety of minerals, trace elements, essential fatty acids, vitamins, anti oxidants and pigments.  They are said to be the most complete food source, in themselves, for human and animal alike.

Spirulina and Chlorella – What are they good for?

They have come to be classified as superfoods which are health supplements, containing just about everything a human body needs to thrive, particularly for those people on less than perfectly balanced diets, ( all of us?) of which there are many in the west, or those on very poor diets, as in developing countries.

As well as being second to none as nutritional supplements, claims have been made for their  ability to detox the body, improve the immune system, rebuild nerve tissue, improve mental function, fight against cancer, help in osteoporosis and arthritis, weight loss,  amongst many others. The answer to everything, in other words.

Are Spirulina and Chlorella as truly miraculous as they claim?

Spirulina – Fact or Fiction?

Claims have been made that Spirulina is the number 1 ‘Superfood’ of the 21st century, the answer to the global problem of malnutrition, poor nutrition and even more impressively,  there are those who state that Spirulina can prevent or even reverse many of today’s most horrible diseases and debilitating conditions.

The question you are probably asking yourself is how much of this is fact? And how much just so much hype? Is Spirulina really a wonder nutritional supplement?

We are all used to extravagant claims made for this or that health product. So, is Spirulina the real thing? Or how much of all this is simply a cynical marketing ploy to extract money from us with the promise of increased health and vigor into a lively old age?  What is true and what isn’t? Can Spirulina deliver?

Can it help you?  And if so how? 

What is Spirulina ?

Spirulina is classified as blue - green algae. It is one of a diverse group of microscopic plants rarely used for food. Spirulina is the exception.  During the last 20 years Spirulina has been rediscovered as a potent food source and nutritional supplement.

It grows wild in warm fresh water ponds and lakes, high in mineral salts. Under the microscope it is made up of tiny spirals, hence the name.  It is now being cultivated all over the world, and is being consumed in over 75 countries. It is being celebrated as the most powerful health food supplement bar none.

But we’ve been here before, haven’t we?  What about brown rice? Or does that age me?

What’s in it?

Spirulina offers 60 - 70% all-vegetable protein, essential vitamins and phytonutrients such as the antioxidant beta carotene, the rare essential fatty acid Gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), sulfolipids, glycolipids and polysaccharides.  Spirulina is rich in iron, magnesium and trace minerals, and is easier to absorb than iron supplements. It also contains very high levels of calcium – far more than milk. In addition, Spirulina is one of the few plant sources of vitamin B12.

What is it used for?

Spirulina is used as a nutritional supplement for humans and also for pets, fish, birds, poultry and other livestock. It more recently has been classed as a superfood in some circles. It is, apparently, extremely effective in bird feed, increasing fertility and encouraging the production of the most wonderful glossy feathers. Flamingoes regularly feed off Spirulina at  Lake Texcoco, Mexico,  in Central Africa around Lake Chad, and in East Africa along the Great Rift Valley. Aquarium fish benefit from it too, by all accounts, and it comes highly recommended by all sorts of fish fanciers. I wonder what it might do for my 16 year old Cat?

How long has it been around?

It belongs to a family or organisms many millions of years old.  It was consumed  as part of a normal diet for centuries by many different peoples round the world from Africa to South America and still is by some, notably in Chad.  It has been rediscovered in recent years.

What are the possible therapeutic benefits?

Claims have been made for the possible therapeutic benefits of Spirulina  in cancer treatment and prevention, AIDS, immunodeficiency, hypertension, and weight loss, to name but few.

How do you take it?

Spirulina is available as a powder, capsule and in tablet form for human consumption. If you lived in the right place, I guess you could eat it fresh?  Apparently, it can taste pretty evil neat.  For the majority of us, we’d have to buy it. On no account eat any old algae on any old pond. Many are very toxic – except to some fish.

It is important that you take care to purchase it from reliable source to ensure its purity

Chlorella – The Facts

Chlorella was the first of the algae to interest scientists in the 1960s. It is one of the green algae and possesses a hard cellulose cell wall typical of plants. In order for the nutritional value of Chlorella to be realized, it is necessary to break down the cell wall to make it digestible. There are question marks over the final quality of its nutritional content when Chlorella is processed in any way. Large scale production of Chorella as a food therefore has given way to its production as a nutritional supplement and attention has been focused on other perceived or claimed health benefits.

Nutritional Content and Possible Health Benefits

Its impressive nutritional content excited much interest.  It too has a high protein content of around 58%, but not as high as the 60 – 70% of Spirulina.  It too is a complete protein.  It has been used as a nutritional supplement for animals, as well as more recently as a health supplement.

  • Chlorella contains high levels of calcium and iron, magnesium, phosphorus and zinc and  traces of iodine.

  • It also contains GLA (Gamma linoleic acid) and other essential fatty acids.

  • It contains vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12, C and E, folic acid, inositol, niacin and pantothenic acid.

  • It is also the richest source of chlorophyll  yet known ,which is useful in ridding the body of toxins, including heavy metals (like mercury in dental fillings), cleansing of the bowel, liver and bloodstream. All green leafy vegetables contain chlorophyll, but none as much as Chlorella, gram for gram.

  • Research has also been conducted on the use of Chlorella to improve cold and flu symptoms and  to boost the immune system. There is some evidence that it can help in wound healing and in reducing high blood pressure.

  • In addition scientists have claimed to have found something called ‘Chlorella growth factor’ which is produced during  the very rapid growth of the algae. It is made up of nucleic acid derivatives and 10% RNA and 3% DNA have been found within Chlorella.  The suggestion is that these nucleic acids once digested and absorbed by the human body can encourage repair of human genetic material and therefore slow down the aging process

 

Get yourself and your family started here with a program that makes sense and please stay in touch. Your health is important to us so please make it important to you. Remember "The Time is Always Now."
