Indications: abnormal cell growth, immune system deficiency
SPIRULINA Spirulina is the highest source in the world of three vital nutrients – carotene, vitamin B 12, and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA).
Beta-carotene, also known as pro-vitamin A, is converted by the body vitamin A and is being widely researched for its apparent aid in protecting healthy cells against abnormal cell growth. There is now widespread medical research into the benefits of beta-carotene and special carotene extracts, which seem to have profound effects in protecting and strengthening the immune system.
Vitamin B-12 is essential to cell metabolism, especially for vegetarians who formerly had no reliable vegetable source of this essential vitamin. Spirulina contains, gram for gram, about 2 1/2 times the B12 of calf’s liver. GLA is another important substance known for helping promote metabolic balance in the body and strengthening the immune system. GLA occurs naturally in mother’s milk, especially in the newborn for the first few days of life. GLA IS also found in evening primrose oil and is an important component of Spirulina. Human population studies show that diets high in carotenes may lead to reduced risk of certain forms of cancer. Spirulina contains the highest concentrations of carotenes of any food, gram for gram. Recent scientific research using Spirulina in animals shows very promising results, better results than with beta-carotene alone. Scientists believe these results are due to the many other carotenes, micronutrients and anti-oxidants in Spirulina acting synergistically. For better health, scientist recommends eating plenty of carotene-rich fruits and vegetables. We recommend you add Spirulina to your daily diet to get the highly concentrated micronutrients and carotenes found all together in one natural food.
