Spirulina is an algae with a monocellular form that thrives in alkaline water. The name "spirulina" is derived from the Latin word that stands for "the helix" or "the spiral", reminding the representation body material when form tiny twisted filaments.
Spirulina is considered as the "food of the future" thanks to its uncommon ability to synthesize as a high quality food better than any other algae. Spirulina is a pure protein between 65 and 75%, with all essential amino acids in total balance. Spirulina is also one of the few plant sources of vitamin B12, commonly available in animal tissues. A tea spoon of Spirulina provides two and a half times the recommended daily amount of vitamin B12 and contains over twice the amount of this vitamin found in an equivalent dose of the liver.
Spirulina also provides a remarkable concentration of additional nutrients such as minerals, amino acids, sugars, pigments, enzymes that are in an easily assimilable structure. Although is monocellular, Spirulina is relatively broad and touches 0.5 millimeters long. This is about 100 times the dimensions of other algae, which makes the Spirulina recognizable to the naked eye. In addition, the 'reproductive capacity of the cell and its predisposition to form colonies makes the Spirulina a series of plants easily collectible.
Algae are diversified according to color and are divided into blue-green, green, red and brown. Spirulina is a blue-green due to the presence of chlorophyll (green) and phycocyanin (blue) in its cellular configuration. The fresh water lakes and ponds that are preferred by far the most saline in the order of 8 - 11 and pH compared to normal ones, they can not support other forms of microorganisms.
Spirulina grows in the warm water (from 32 ° to 45 °) and even managed to live at a temperature of 60 °. The Spirulina ability to thrive in hot and alkaline environments ensures its state of hygiene. Despite the stereotypical association of microorganisms with germs and waste products, Spirulina it is one of the purest food to be found anywhere in nature. The natural inclination of the trend of hot ensure to theSpirulina  the retention of all its nutritional value, even when submitted to high temperatures unlike other plants which degrade when exposed to the same conditions.
Spirulina is an unusual pattern among algae because it is a "nuclear plant", located in the middle of the path of development of plants and animals. It is considered, in a certain sense, a vegetable because there are no harsh membranes of cellulose characteristics of plant cells, but at the same time does not have a well-defined nucleus. Its metabolic system is based on the chlorophyll function, a direct production process of energy, which uses the sunlight and chlorophyll, and that is specific to forms of vegetables life.
Spirulina is placed on the path of evolution at the point where the animal world and the vegetable have become more diversified. In contrast, other algae such as Chlorella have developed the hard wall indigestible typical of the plants. There are 35 species of Spirulina growing in lakes located on the entire Earth's surface such as Lake Chad (Sahara), Lake Rudolf, Lake Nature (both in Kenya) and numerous others in arid regions. Since the conformation of the alga seems to mutate and vary depending on the pH and nutritional conditions, it is possible that the different forms are simple modifications within a single species.
Spirulina provides natural iron and is rich in vegetable protein. It accelerates the metabolic functions and provides essential amino acids. It is the support for vegetarians; It is an excellent tonic and increases muscle mass.



The blue-green algae and Spirulina in particular, have a primitive structure with little possibility of the starch storage and growth of the cell membrane, but they have a large amount of ribosomes, the cell bodies that make up proteins. This particular gift
  of cellular constituents enables rapid photosynthesis and protein formation. L 'absence of harsh cell walls ensures that the protein of Spirulina can be absorbed easily and quickly.
Spirulina is composed of proteins for the 65-71% depending on the conditions of development. These proteins are biologically complete and provide all 8 essential amino acids in the due proportions. Most of the plant does not have complete proteins because they lack one or more essential amino acids. Unfortunately our body can not store amino acids waiting for the missing ones that may come at subsequent meals.
To synthesize proteins for the maintenance and care of the body, all amino acids must
  be present simultaneously, otherwise it will be lost. Also, even if using the entire protein, some difficulties in digestion can hinder the absorption of all the necessary elements. Spirulina provides all essential amino acids and in a form such that they are 5 times more easily assimilated than those of meat or soy.


L - ISOLEUCINE (4.13%): it is essential for optimal growth, intelligence development and nitrogen equilibrium in the body. It is used to synthesize other non-essential amino acids.
L - Leucine (5.80%): Stimulator of brain activity, increases muscular energy levels.
L - LYSINE (4.00%): builds of blood antibodies, strengthens circulatory system and maintains normal development of cells.
L - methionine (17.2%): Vital lipotropic amino acid (metabolizing fats and lipids) that protects the health of the liver. anti-stress factor, it calms the nerves.
L - PHENYLALANINE (3.95%): Required by the thyroid gland for the generation of thyroxine, that stimulates the metabolic rate.
L - THREONINE (4.17%): improves intestinal activity and digestion
L - TRYPTOPHANE (13.1%): Increases utilization of B vitamins, improves nerve health and stability of the emotions. It promotes a sense of calm
L - Valine (6.00%): stimulates intellectual capacity and muscle coordination.
In addition to that Spirulina provides 10 of the 12 non-essential amino acids. "Not essential" does not mean that these are not required by the body but only indicates that the body can synthesize them alone if needs it, provided that they are usable nutritional blocks capable of building them. In any case, the body is best served if these components are readily and fully usable by dietary resources since all of the amino acids must be at your fingertips as the enzymes that constitute the cells, proteins, the hormones products of metabolism.

From the thousands of biochemicals that operate and interact in the human body, none is derived from a vaccine: the body is ultimately dependent on of nutrients intakes to satisfy all of its functions.


L - ALANINE (5.82%): strengthens the cell walls.
L - Arginine (5.98%): Important to male sexual health, since the sperm is composed of arginine to 1'80%. It also helps to purify the blood.
L - ASPARTIC ACID (6.34%): Aids transformation of carbohydrates into energy.
L - CYSTINE (0.67%): it helps maintain healthy pancreas which stabilizes blood sugar and carbohydrate metabolism. It is used to alleviate some symptoms of intolerance and / or allergy to food.
L - GLYCINE (5.3%): it promotes the use of energy and oxygen in the cells.
L - HISTIDINE (8.1%): strengthens the relaxation of nerves especially auditory apparatus. It has been used to combat some cases of deafness.
L - PROLINE (2.97%) is a precursor of glutamic acid
L - SERINA (4.00%): Helps form the protective fatty sheaths surrounding the nerves.
L - TlROSINA (4.60%): slows the aging of cells and regulates the hunger centers in the hypothalamus. It can be synthesized from phenylalanine. It is involved in hair coloring and dermis and prevents burns caused by exposure to sunlight. The waters in which proliferates Spirulina are so saturated with minerals deposited from ancient soils that no other plant can live there.
Since the Spirulina proliferates in alkaline waters, it incorporates and synthesizes many minerals and other components derived in its cells. Transformed into organic natural forms by Spirulina, minerals are covered by amino acids and are therefore more easily assimilated.
POTASSIUM (15.4 mg / kg): It is a fundamental mineral that regulates the electrical balance in the body. A deficiency of this mineral can cause heart failure, high blood pressure and muscle spasms.
CALCIUM (1:31 mg7kg): is the most abundant mineral in the human body. It is important for our body and for healthy bones and teeth, but it is also involved in the transmission of signals to the muscles. Spirulina supplies about as much calcium as milk.
ZINC (39 mg / kg) is the main reference of over 30 vital enzymatic reactions. Has profound effects on mental health, on epidermal tone, the prostate functions and health recovery capabilities
MAGNESIUM (1,195 mg / kg): a deficiency can cause spasmodic muscle disorders, including cardiac abnormalities. It helps the absorption of vitamins B and C and protein.
MANGANESE (25 mg / kg): it activates the enzyme systems together with zinc. It promotes the activity of neurotransmitters (acetylcholine) and helps stabilize blood sugar levels in the blood
Selenium (40 mg / kg) was believed to be a toxic heavy metal while now it is widely accepted belief that it is essential to health. It slows aging, harmful oxidation and the formation of free radicals, limiting the harmful effect of carcinogens and improves the efficiency of the heart.
IRON (580 mg / kg): promotes the composition of hemoglobin, the blood pigment that transforms oxygen. The Iron scarcity is common in women in their reproductive moment.
PHOSPHORUS (8,492 mg / kg): it is the second most abundant mineral in the human body and is ever found in almost every cell. Along with calcium it acts to maintain a good bone structure. It helps to assimilate carbohydrates and B vitamins niacin and riboflavin.


Pyridoxine or B6 (3 mg / kg): it is involved in the breakdown and absorption of proteins. It protects the health of the heart and balances the female hormonal levels. Dr.. Cari Pfeiffer has demonstrated that B6, together with the zinc, can cure some forms of schizophrenia
BIOTIN (0.4 mg / kg): it is an enzyme that transports CO2 during certain biochemical reactions involved in carbohydrate metabolism. It also acts as an enzyme in the assimilation of other B complex vitamins. Biotin is eliminated by eating egg whites and some raw fish.
COBALAMIN or B12 (2 mg / kg): is the vitamin that more rarely can be obtained from vegetables. Spirulina is particularly rich in this rare vitamin (it contains 25% more than in beef liver that in the past was believed to be the food which held more). A single dose of Spirulina easily exceeds the RDA (recommended daily dose - Recommended Daily Allowance) ranging from 1.5 to 3 mg per day. A deficiency of B12 can lead to pernicious anemia, nerve degeneration, premature aging and to forms of mental illness bordering on schizophrenia.
PANTOTHENIC ACID (11 mg / kg): is used by the glands, along with cholesterol and vitamin C, to generate cortisone and other steroids in response to the physical psychic fatigue. A deficiency leads to sensitize allergies, infections and degenerative diseases such as arthritis and rheumatism. Have been associated with deficiency of this vitamin also ulcers and hypoglycemia.
FOLIC ACID (0.5 mg / kg): necessary for a proper composition of hemoglobin in blood cells. Its failure can lead to anemia, poor growth, disorders in skin pigmentation and premature whitening of the hair
INOSITOL (350 mg / kg): it is a vital element lipotropic that maintains the health of the liver and helps to remove the toxic effects of carcinogens and in particular the effects of female hormones. Together with choline, inositol is used by the liver to generate the lecithin. Inositol after niacin is the second most abundant vitamin in the body. Recent studies have indicated that inositol, with biotin, reduces hair loss.
NIACIN or B3 (118 mg / kg): also known as nicotinic acid or niacimide, which is an alternative structure. Niacin is essential for mental health. Dr. Abram Hoffer, a renowned pioneer in orthomolecular psychiatry, has completely cured the symptoms of schizophrenia with niacin. The "Physicians Desk Reference", a pharmaceutical text used by doctors to drug prescriptions, recognizes niacin as an element able to reduce the level of cholesterol.
RIB0FLAVINA or B2 (40 mg / kg): the most common vitamin deficiency is from B2 and leads to cataract, low vision, watery eyes and intolerable eczema.
THIAMINE or B1 (55 mg / kg): it is a coenzyme in the destruction of carbohydrates. It keeps glucose levels in the blood. Its insufficiency can cause heart problems, abdominal distention and lack of oxygenation. A significant deficiency can also be cause of death, critical toxemia
that develops from fragments of carbohydrates not metabolised.
TOCOPHEROL or E (190 mg / kg): Spirulina encloses more vitamin E per gram of a pure wheat seed. This vitamin protects the heart and cardiovascular system and helps the oxygenation of cells and slows the aging. Enzymatic pigments supplied by Spirulina, proteins, vitamins and minerals are abundant in spirulina.
This small organism is rich in pigments that are important biochemically for life. Without pigments we could not synthesize many of the enzymes necessary to balance the metabolism. The most distinguishable pigment
in Spirulina is chlorophyll which is a common green molecule in plants. It releases ions when struck by solar energy. The free ions stimulate the biochemical responses useful to produce proteins, vitamins and sugars. Chlorophyll is sometimes called "green blood" due to hemoglobin which is found in human blood molecules.
In fact both are made from the same molecular structure and both substances are known as "Porfirini pigments" by scientists. The diversity is that chlorophyll has as a central body a magnesium ion, while the hemoglobin includes an iron particle. The magnesium gives a greenish color to the chlorophyll molecule and is involved in the synthesis of other materials, while the hemoglobin iron provides the red color and the wetsuit the activities of porphyrin particle in respiration and breaking down of food.
It is widely believed that if one assumes chlorophyll and iron, magnesium can be replaced to create a hemoglobin molecule. Trials in Japan have evidenced that possesses a positive effect on anemia, perhaps determined by the transformation of chlorophyll into hemoglobin. Surely the nutrient density of the Spirulina (B 12, folic acid, amino acids) can be used to treat anemia. Chlorophyll has positive effects on the body.
It increases the peristaltic action, reduces constipation and regulates the secretion of digestive acids, soothes inflammation and reduces the secretion of pepsin associated with gastric ulcers. During the Second World War, the action of chlorophyll and its antiseptic qualities made her a first aid medication to prevent infections caused by gunshot wounds. Chlorophyll soothes
the swellings and helps granulation or the process that allows you to generate new tissue.
Chlorophyll seems to be able to renew damaged cells of the liver and increase blood circulation by dilating blood vessels. In the heart, it helps to transmit nerve signals that control the contractions. The heart rate is reduced, but each contraction is more powerful, thus improving the efficiency of the system in general.
