The Health Benefits and Uses of Spirulina

Spirulina has not only the proteins needed to promote a good night’s sleep; it also contains magnesium and potassium. Deficiencies in these elements have been shown to cause insomnia and poor quality of sleep. Spirulina also contains the amino acid tryptophan which the body needs to produce serotonin.

It is actually a bacteria referred to as cyanobacterium, or otherwise called blue-green algae. It grows in salt water and freshwater environments. Its use goes back to the Aztecs and, in today’s society, people usually consume spirulina by tablets or mix the powder in their smoothies in order to reap the many health benefits.

The Health Benefits of Spirulina are:

It acts as a powerful antioxidant: Spirulina benefits contains the antioxidants beta-carotene and zeaxanthin, as well as phycocyanin which is what gives it its blue-green color. Phycocyanin fights free radicals, thus slowing down the production of inflammatory-signaling molecules. This provides amazing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Spirulina is 65% protein and amino acids including the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which has gotten a lot of attention for its anti-inflammatory properties.

It boosts the immune system: Spirulina contains many nutrients including iron, manganese, zinc, copper, selenium, and chromium. These nutrients, along with the eight essential amino acids and 10 other amino acids found in spirulina, fight cell-damaging molecules, thus boosting the immune system.

It contains Omega 3-,6 and 9s and is especially high in Omega-3s.

It reduces the risk of cancer: Studies have proven that the nutrients found in spirulina reduce the effects of environmental properties that damage the body on a cellular level. This inhibits further cellular degeneration that may lead to cancer. In some studies, spirulina was able to reduce the tumors associated with oral cancers.

It’s extremely high in Chlorophyll, which helps remove toxins from the blood and boost the immune system.

It can be a treatment for anemia: Taken along with vitamin B12, spirulina can boost the production of red blood cells. This has been found to be particularly useful for the elderly.

Spirulina has a very high concentration of bio-available iron and is excellent during pregnancy and for those with anemia and will not cause constipation.

It increases stamina and muscle endurance: Spirulina increases one’s metabolism and helps the body burn fat instead of carbohydrates. It also protects the body against oxidative stress and increases antioxidant activity after a workout, thus improving the levels of endurance for athletes.

It lowers blood pressure: Spirulina promotes a decrease in blood pressure by raising the production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide encourages the blood vessels to relax and dilate. High blood pressure can lead to heart attacks, strokes, and many other ailments.

It is also incredibly high in calcium with over 26 times the calcium in milk, making it excellent for children, the elderly and during pregnancy.
