Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that is found in Africa and Asia, as well as in Central America. Free growing, spirulina lives in high-salt alkaline water in subtropical and tropical areas, sometimes dense enough to give the water a dark-green color.
Spirulina algae contains all of the essential amino acids, thus it is considered a complete protein source. Apart from the high (up to 70%) content of protein, it also considered a good source of vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, and antioxidants that helps protect cells from damage. It contains nutrients, including B complex vitamins (B1, B2, B12, B9), beta-carotenes, vitamin E, manganese, zinc, copper, iron, selenium, potassium, calcium, magnesium, chromium, sodium, phosphorus and gamma linoleic acid (an essential fatty acid). Spirulina lacks cellulose cell walls and therefore it can be easily digested.
The Phycocyanin in Spirulina affects the stem cells found in bone marrow. Stem cells are “Grandmother” to both the white blood cells that make up the cellular immune system and the red blood cells that oxygenate the body.
In addition, although spirulina is generally low in carbohydrate nutrients, it contains a unique, sulfur and calcium-containing carbohydrate called calcium spirulina that may contribute to its beneficial effects on body function and health.
