Spirulina Health Benefits
With an unsurpassed nutritional composition not known by any other food, herb, grain or plant, Spirulina is a form of blue green algae that is farmed and grows wildly today in high alkaline, mineral-rich and largely pollution free fresh warm watered lakes termed “Soda lakes”.
This fascinating algae has a long history dating back to Chad in the 9th century and also to the Aztecs 16th century Mexico. Records showing that cakes were made from the Spirulina and consumed and traded by the local tribes. In this modern day and age you can just go online or to the local shops to purchase either the powder or as I prefer the tablet. As you can see it has been used as a whole food alternative throughout the ages.
There are many health benefits of Spirulina it’s an excellent source of vitamins, minerals and proteins (a high digestible vegetable protein concentration of 60 – 70% dry weight) with as much calcium as milk. 15 times more vitamin A than Carrots, 3 times more iron than sirloin steak, 3.7 times more potassium than rice and 2.5 times b 12 than calves’ liver. Containing essential fatty acids and overloaded with unique phytonutrient’s such as phycocyanin, polysaccharides and sulfolipids that enhance the immune system as well as reduce the risk of infection, auto immune diseases and cancer.
The Spirulina growth factor or “SGF” increases enzyme activity and trigger faster cell growth, rejuvenating tissue and organs where needed amazingly helping the body to rebuild itself. It also encourages weight loss, lowers blood pressure, Helps improve blood sugar problems, increases mental alertness, helps fight viral infections, treats radiation sickness & strengthens the nervous system.
No wonder it has been termed as a “Super food”.
Residing in Africa already growing is the largest fertile valley of such “Soda lakes”, with an amazing natural growth rate doubling every 3 days when grown in the right conditions Spirulina is a sustainable source of food capable of ending world hunger. With the growing numbers of 925 million people worldwide suffering from malnutrition and contained in that 20 million children under the age of 5. It’s disgusting that this is our world view.
Luckily there are programs like Antenna working on not only distribution and production of this fantastic algae but also in educating the local people in the growth cultivation. Giving one of the most precious gifts the ability to grow and sell Spirulina to support their families, a self-sustained future, letting these people gain their power back. That’s the first step of any revolution, the people gaining their power back. Deciding that things need to change, they just simply cannot continue as they are.
Having personally taken Spirulina for the past 7 months, 5.5 of those months on the Golden Trine I can back up these claims of massive health benefits. My Thyroid has been faulty since 13 yrs old constantly causing problems like not being able to lose weight and feeling lethargic. Now I feel re energized, I have lost an insane 30 Kgs and I feel incredible. Ready to take on the world. In fact I am so impressed with the health benefits I have been not only telling everyone I cross paths with in day to day life, but I am also sharing it with you. – © Ange Marxsen
