Spirulina: natural ingredient of Zetastop

Main active components in spirulina

Spirulina: edible microalgae and natural ingredient of ZetastopIn addition to chlorophyll, like all algae spirulina contains Proteins. It is one of the richest natural sources of protein (contains about 70% of its weight, while the soybean contains 35% and the meat 20%).
The protein in Spirulina is complete and of great biological value because they contain all eight essential amino acids (those that the body cannot synthesize) in the optimal proportion well as other non-essential.

Contains lipids (8% of its weight), largely consisting of unsaturated fatty acids, such as linoleic acid and in particular gamma-linolenic acid: spirulina is one of the vegetable most rich in these substances, very valid in the treatment of atherosclerosis.

Present glucides or carbon hydrates (18%), among which stands out by relevance a rare natural sugar: rhamnose, which promotes glucose metabolism and exerts a beneficial effect on diabetes.

It contains vitamins A, of group B, E and H (biotin). Its contents significant vitamin B12, greater even than that of the mammalian liver, makes of the spirulina a food much appreciated by those who follow a strict vegetarian diet that is devoid of eggs and dairy products. It should be stated, however, that vitamin B12 is not found in the algae properly so called, but in a variety of bacteria that typically accompany.

We also find various minerals and trace elements. It is especially rich in iron: 53 mg. in 100 g. of the edible part (the meat contains from 2 to 3 mg. per 100 g., and the liver 11 mg.).

Activities and use of alga spirulina

Due to its richness in nutrients, Spirulina exerts an action very beneficial in many cases and diseases. In more detail:

  • Slimming diets: its rather low caloric content (360 calories per 100 g.) Compared to the great amount of protein and vitamins, spirulina is an excellent supplement for slimming diets. Its use helps to maintain the nutritional balance in low-calorie diets without causing weakness or exhaustion due to malnutrition.
    In addition, the wealth of fenilalamina, essential amino acid present in relatively high doses, according to some researchers helps to reduce the feeling of hunger. Diseases requiring a forced diet, such as diabetes, hepatitis or pancreatitis, in which there is the risk that produce deficiencies
  • Anemia: the considerable content of iron and essential amino acids favors the synthesis of hemoglobin, the main constituent of red blood cells. Spirulina is therefore recommended to pregnant women
  • Situations of malnutrition, convalescence and physical exhaustion: it acts as a tonic and restorative general of the body.
  • Atherosclerosis and its complications: angina pectoris, myocardial infarction and arterial ischemia (lack of blood flow), which mostly affects the legs. The beneficial effect of spirulina is developed thanks to its wealth of unsaturated fatty acids, such as linoleic acid and the ’gamma-linolenic acid.
