WHO SHOULD TAKE SPIRULINA? Everyone! They say it is especially useful for people who have low energy levels, people who are overweight, people who exercise, people who eat a lot of animal protein, people who take prescription meds, people with poor digestion, and people who eat processed foods. I think just about all of us have fit into at least one of these categories from time to time.
It boosts your immunity. It activates all your necessary cells and macrophages to attack invading organisms. By doing so it will help with many viruses and keep them from making copies of themselves, such as HIV, AIDS, herpes, measles mumps, influenza and others. It also helps cleanse your body and helps heal wounds quickly. It is great for people who need an extra boost of immunity like pregnant women and people who are going in for surgery.
It will fight hard for you. As well as fighting the things mentioned above, with its array of excellent nutrients it will help protect and fight many other things. So to name a few....
Omegas- helps protect and fight against heart disease, osteoporosis, bad cholesterol, diabetes, depression, and arthritis.
B12- helps with nerve damage and and related diseases like fibromyalgia. It promotes metabolism of all your cells and the development of healthy nerve tissue.
Beta Carotene- protects and is essential for your eyes, skin, teeth, bones, mucous membranes and inmunity. To get more specific it helps acne, improves age spots, eczema and rashes. It will help improve glaucoma, poor vision, and cataracts.
Antioxidants/Phytonutrients/Carotenoids- these will detoxify your liver and kidneys and protect your brain. It will also fight aging and free radicals. Helps to fight and prevent cancer.
It will balance your pH. You all know I love the word balance especially when it comes to our bodies. By balancing your pH it will help with inflammation, which is said to be the root of many diseases. Spirulina will help aid in balancing inflamed immune systems as well which is the cause of autoimmune diseases.
It will help with weight control. Spirulina is an appetite suppressant. Taking it daily will help with getting in your daily nutritional needs without taking in too many calories. It is so nutrient dense and so low in calories it almost seems impossible (500mg tablet is only 2 calories). Due to its easy digestible protein it helps with lean muscle building and is also known to help with stamina and burning more fat when paired with exercise. Testing has shown that there is a definite advantage for people taking it over people who aren't when it comes to their weight loss program and exercise routine.
Other benefits... It works as a histamine blocker and helps with allergies, improves digestion and gastrointestinal health, creates beneficial flora that also helps digestive tract, helps you fight germs and viruses by producing more red and white blood cells, oxygenates the blood, cleans your blood with chlorophyl, helps control the growth of pathogenic bacteria and yeasts with its microbial effects, protects against harmful radiation....... I could seriously go on and on! And I sincerely apologize about the disorganization of this post! There is so much it can do it has made it so hard to categorize it. Just as a quick summary though...... Remember, it is the most nutrient rich food known to man and will greatly help your quality of life and help maximize longevity!
