Food supplement containing dried algae powder Spirulina. A rich source of protein, vitamin B, copper and Iron.

Spirulina is a nutritional supplement with a wide range of activities. It has a high content of easily absorbed protein, vitamins, minerals and other substances necessary for the human body, which makes it a great food for the 21st century. It is thanks to this unique nutritional value that spirulina enriches the diet of astronauts on space expeditions.

Spirulina first appeared on earth about 3.5 billion years ago, it is one of the oldest forms of life on earth. It lives naturally in shallow ponds and lakes with high pH and high salt content-in Africa, Asia and South America.

The biomass of these green-blue cyanobacteria has long been part of the diet of the Aztecs and African tribes living around Lake Chad. For modern Western people, Spirulina was discovered in 1940 and has been intensively studied by various researches since the mid-1960s. That is why we know its composition, high nutritional value and benefits for human health so well.

Spirulina is very rich in protein-the protein content in dry matter is about 70 %. It is a source of vitamins such as e.g. A (the vitamin is mainly present in the form of the precursor β-carotene 700-1700 mg/kg), B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, D, E, K, but it is also a source of magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, copper, chromium, manganese, selenium, sodium as well as zinc. Iron from spirulina is also worthy of special attention. It is assimilated twice as much as from animal products. This is due to the porphyrin structure of the phycocyanin contained in the algae’s cells, which is capable of forming complexes with iron.

Moreover, exceptional properties of spirulina have been appreciated in the field of cosmetology, but also in biotechnology, e. g. in the production of dietary supplements.

Possible effects of the components of the preparation:

  • Vitamin A contributes to normal iron metabolism, maintenance of normal skin, vision, immune system.
  • Vitamin B12 contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, functioning of the nervous system, psychological function, red blood cell formation, immune system, reduction of tiredness and fatigue, has a role in the process of cell division.
  • Vitamin B6 contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, functioning of the nervous system, homocysteine metabolism, protein and glycogen metabolism, red blood cell formation, immune system, reduction of tiredness and fatigue, regulation of hormonal activity.
  • Vitamin C contributes to maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise, collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels, collagen formation for the normal function of bones, skin, functioning of the nervous system, immune system, protection of cells from oxidative stress, reduction of tiredness and fatigue, regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E and increases iron absorption.
  • Vitamin D contributes to normal absorption/utilisation of calcium and phosphorus, blood calcium levels, maintenance of normal bones, muscle funkcjion, has a role in the process of cell division.

  • Copper contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, normal functioning of the nervous system, hair pigmentation, iron transport in the body, skin pigmentation and l function of the immune system.
  • Chromium contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism and blood glucose levels.
  • Manganese contributes to the normal formation of connective tissue and contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress.
  • Selenium contributes to normal spermatogenesis, immune system, thyroid function and protection of cells from oxidative stress.
  • Iron contributes to normal cognitive function, energy-yielding metabolism, formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, oxygen transport in the body, function of the immune system, reduction of tiredness and fatigue and has a role in the process of cell division
