Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that has a high nutritional value and is believed to have many health benefits including boosting the immune system.
What are its health benefits?
Spirulina is a microalgae that grows naturally in oceans and salty lakes in subtropical climates – it is also now grown in laboratories.
Punted as a “superfood”, spirulina contains significant amounts of amino acids (the building blocks of proteins), vitamins, minerals and carotenoids (antioxidants that protect cells from damage from free radicals). These include calcium, B vitamins, betacarotene, vitamin E, potassium, magnesium, copper, iron, zinc, selenium and the essential fatty acid gamma linoleic acid (GLA).
Spirulina is rich in beta-carotene, chlorophyll, fatty-acid GLA and other nutrients which are particularly beneficial for overweight people. Taking this supplement is beneficial while fasting, as it supplies the nutrients that are needed to cleanse and heal your system, while curbing your appetite.
Reportedly, spirulina may have the following benefits but more research is needed:
- Promotes the healthy functioning of the immune system
- Provides more energy
- Promotes the body’s natural cleansing process
- Speeds up recovery after illness
- For weight loss
- Helps protect against allergic reactions
- Helps maintain healthy skin, hair and nails
- Treating precancerous mouth lesions
