Spirulina: its effects on Health and use

Spirulina is a plant that can control glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol. It relieves inflammatory pain, has antioxidant properties and protects against diseases of the heart, liver and kidneys. In addition, it supports the immune system, reduces concomitant allergic reactions, improves digestion and promotes brain function. Do not believe? Find out about the results of scientific research in our article that confirm this.

Blue-green algae is full of protein and vitamins

Spirulina is a fibrous cyanobacteria and super food also called blue-green algae. This is due to its expressive color. Spirulina is grown in salt or fresh water with a high pH. This plant contains many vitamins - from A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, C to vitamin E, and is also characterized by a high protein content, which averages up to 60% of its total content. Imagine a food supplement that can regulate glucose, blood pressure, cholesterol, and relieve inflammatory pain. A product that has antioxidant properties and protects against diseases of the heart, liver and kidneys; which supports the immune system, reduces allergic reactions, improves digestion and promotes healthy brain function. All this is characteristic of this wonderful superfood.

Replenishes protein better than nuts
 
The proportion of protein suitable for human use is determined by the quality of amino acids, digestibility (the proportion of protein absorbed in the intestine) and biological value (the proportion of protein held in the body). Dried eggs (94%) have the highest nutritional value of proteins compared to spirulina, followed by milk, fish, chicken and beef.
 
Spirulina vs. other products
 
Comparison of spirulina with other products shows that spirulina is a special source of nutrients and vitamins. In the end, a 3g dose of spirulina has a stronger anti-inflammatory effect than five servings of fruits or vegetables per day. Hawaiian spirulina has the best nutritional value among all types of spirulina. Spirulina Hawaiian per gram contains:
 
• 180% more calcium than in whole milk
• 100% more iron than spinach
• 100% more beta-carotene than carrots
• 670% more protein than tofu
• 31 times more phytonutrients than blueberries
• 60 times more phytonutrients than spinach
• 700 times more phytonutrients than apples
 
Health effects and benefits of spirulina
 
1. Supports yeast infection treatment
Candida is a type of yeast that is a natural part of the intestinal and oral micro flora. Their reproduction is mainly based on bad eating habits, such as high sugar intake. High growth in yeast infections can be stopped with spirulina. Several studies have confirmed that spirulina kills yeast infection cells and promotes the growth of healthy bacterial flora in the intestines.
 
2. Is a prophylactic against cancer?
 
Phycocyanin is a source of staining of blue-green algae, but, above all, it is a component with excellent antioxidant properties, due to which spirulina prevents the spread of chronic inflammation and oxidative damage to cells. These are phenomena that contribute to the spread of cancer. Phycocyanin helps fight free radicals and prevents the production of inflammatory signaling molecules.
 
3. Regulates high blood pressure
 
High blood pressure is the driving force behind heart attacks, strokes, or kidney disease. To prevent these diseases, according to studies, it is enough to consume 4.5 g of spirulina. Although 1 g did not produce any results, an almost 5-gram dose can lower blood pressure and adjust it to an acceptable level.
 
4. Can regulate blood sugar
 
Other scientific studies show that 2 g of spirulina is enough to significantly reduce high blood sugar in people with type 2 diabetes. This amount can regulate the glucose level from 9% to 8%, which at first glance may seem insignificant, but even such a change can reduce the risk of death from diabetes by 21%. In some cases, spirulina even exceeded known diabetes drugs, such as metformin.
 
5. Improves physical strength and stamina.
 
Some plant foods rich in minerals can reduce muscle damage in sportsmen and physically active people. One such product is Spirulina, which can dramatically improve stamina, reduce fatigue and increase physical strength.
