A full range of Amino Acids, Enzymatic Pigments, Chlorophyll (green), Phycocyanin (blue) & Carotenes (yellow, orange, brown), Sulfur-based Phytonutrients, numerous other Phytonutrients, Vitamins, Minerals & Trace Elements, Essential Fatty Acids including GLA & Omega-3, plus the long-energizing carbohydrate Rhamnose.
Spirulina is especially rich in:
- Chlorophyll for cleansing.
- A full spectrum of trace minerals from the sea.
- Carotenes, enzymatic pigments, essential fatty acids.
- Sulfur-based phytonutrients support body's guarding against viruses and cancer.
- Spirulina is balancing and energizing - for endurance & stamina.
- Spirulina is a great longevity food.
- Spirulina has twice the B-12 content of liver
- Spirulina has 25 times more carotene than carrots
- Spirulina is aquatically cultivated and organically grown
- Spirulina is 2 to 6 times higher in iron than beef liver
- Spirulina contains more antioxidants than regular whole food
- Spirulina has is the highest protein of any natural food (average 65%)
- Spirulina is easily digestible with all essential amino acids
Spirulina is a microscopic spiral shaped, blue-green vegetable algae that has been used as a significant food source for centuries. Spirulina is highly digestible and the most nutritious, concentrated whole food known to mankind. It contains a rich spectrum of available proteins and is the richest source of beta-carotene and mixed carotenoids in the world.
It is rich in GLA, important B complexes and natural vitamin E, along with Calcium, Iron and other essential chelated minerals and trace elements.
Spirulina is natures richest whole-food source of the entire antioxidant spectrum including: beta-carotene, vit. E, selenium, methionine, cysteine, super oxide dismutase, glutathionine Peroxides, copper, manganese, zinc, B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, and B-6. It is the only source of phycocyanin, an immune stimulant.
Spirulina is nature's richest whole food source of biochelated organic iron. It's 58 times richer than raw spinach and 28 times richer than raw beef liver.
Spirulina is nature's richest source of vitamin E. It's 3 times higher than raw wheat germ, and its action in the body is 49% greater than that of synthetic vitamin E.
Spirulina is nature's richest source of beta-carotene (pro-vitamin A) it's 25 times higher than raw carrots!
Beta-carotene in Spirulina is completely nontoxic, even in mega doses.
Spirulina is nature's richest source of gamma linolenic acid (GLA). It's 3 times richer than evening primrose! The polyunsaturated oils in spirulina contain 21% GLA (GLA is the active ingredient in evening primrose oil - evening primrose oil contains up to 10% GLA.)
Spirulina is a rich whole food source of chlorophyll - equal to that of alfalfa or wheatgrass.
Spirulina is nature's richest whole-food source of complete protein.
Hawaiian Spirulina is a select strain of arthrospira platensis developed over many years of continuous cultivation in Hawaii. Strain development and perfection started in 1984. The cultures grown by Cyanotech in Hawaii represent the oldest continuously cultivated and harvested spirulina in the world. Hawaii 's year-round grown conditions and integrated culture management system have made this possible. Hawaiian Spirulina has been extensively analyzed by molecular biologists at the University of Hawaii who identified unique enzymes not previously found in other strains of spirulina platensis.
Kona Spirulina (Pacifica) is grown with all of the trace mineral benefits of Pacific Ocean water drawn from 7,000 feet down and blended with Kona's famous sunshine. It is a profound product superbly rich in unique proteins, biodynamic carbohydrates, immune-supporting cancer-slamming sulfur-based lipids, super-carotenoids, and enzymatic pigments. It delivers exceptional quality and benefits with no other Spirulina even coming close - until now.
For nearly every reason that Kona Spinulina is great, this Atacama Spirulina has a slight edge - especially with a 35% higher carotenoid content!
At an ancient time, when Northern Chile was rich in foliage, a tiny insect fed upon the mineral-rich leaf of a plant. He had trillions-upon-trillions of friends. Over vast tracts of time, countless numbers of these insects came and went. There are areas where their accumulations have been reduced to pure mineral deposits of a profile best accommodating the perfect Spirulina chow. Some supplement companies like to sell some types of ancient mineral deposits just as they are, or in liquid form. Hold that thought.
Nearby, high in the Andes Mountains, glaciers grind their way down rich volcanic peaks. This glacial milk has unique properties contributing to the extraordinary longevity of the legendary Vilacabamba villagers. These people conceive and bare children for decades longer, and remain physically vigorous and productive into their nineties.
Dissolve those spirulina chow minerals into that special glacial mineral water, and then evaporate concentrate it to a mineral level over 9 times that of sea water. Feed it to a superior strain of Spirulina (Maxima). And then greenhouse-culture that crop under the brilliant sun of the driest desert in the world - zero rain at the growing site in over 300 years. The result is the purest, cleanest, most naturally nutrient-rich food known!
