The medicinal properties of spirulina have been studied in great detail and proven experimentally. The consumption of Spirulina benefits many vital functions of the human body:
The blue pigment (phycocyanin) present in Arthrospira platensis enhances the body’s capacity to neutralise free radicals (excess amount of free radicals weakens immunity, accelerates ageing and creates favourable conditions for many chronic diseases), by supporting the body’s natural defence. The activity of phycocyanin is enhanced by other natural antioxidants contained in spirulina such as beta-carotene or the essential gamma-linolenic fatty acid (GLA).
Boosts the body’s general endurance by increasing the number of antibody-producing cells. Helps balance blood lipids. – Another compound present in spirulina – chlorophyll – promotes healthy bowel movements.
