The preparation contains the dried cells of Arthrospira platensis - one of spirulina species. Up to 55-70 percent of Spirulina composition is easily digestible protein (including all exogenous amino acids, those the body cannot synthesise on its own, and hence must be provided with food). Furthermore, spirulina contains numerous polysaccharides (glucosamine, glycogen), easily assimilable macro- and micro-elements (iron, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, zinc, selenium, chromium, copper), vitamins (of the B-group as well as C, D and E), unsaturated fatty acids (GLA – gamma-linolenic acid), pigments (including carotenoids, chlorophyll, xantophylls and phycocyanin).
The cell walls of spirulina do not contain cellulose, that is why their contents are readily absorbed (between 85 and 95%) - much more efficiently than in the case of animal or plant protein.
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:
- prevents the breakdown of starch. defense
- Spirulina is a rich source of antioxidants that help the body to protect against the consequences of oxidative stress,
- Spirulina supports the natural defense mechanisms,
- Spirulina helps in case of fatigue,
- Spirulina keeps correct sugar level
- thanks to its rich content and nutritional properties it is the perfect dietary supplement for vegetarians, vegans, the elderly and convalescents
