Spirulina Powder by Now Foods is a food supplement based on extract of spirulina. Spirulina (Spirulina maxima) is a unicellular algae that has a spiral shape (hence its name), and is of a green blue colour due to the presence of chlorophyll. Spirulina has the highest levels of protein and beta-carotene of all green superfoods.
Contains Omgea-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. It is very rich in GLA (gamma linolenic acid) of vegetable origin, a fatty acid with numerous health benefits. Due to its elevated amount of vitamins (above all vitamin B12), minerals, fatty acids, amino acids, proteins and photochemical substances, spirulina increases vitality, sexual energy and memory and helps strengthen the immune system. It helps to reduce cholesterol levels due to the high content of gamma-linolenic acid and niacin.
It has a detoxifying action on the organism as it helps to reduce the toxic effect on the kidneys caused by heavy metals (lead, mercury) and the consumption of medication thanks to the high detoxification power of chlorophyll. It also helps to balance glucose in the blood for those who suffer from diabetes thanks to the combination of magnesium, chromium and vitamins B1, B12 and B3 and it therefore offers protection to the cardiovascular system.
It prevents and combats anaemia due to its high iron content and its easy assimilation, well as in magnesium, folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12. Due to its high content in amino acids, vitamins and minerals, it is the ideal supplement for people who are at risk of a deficiency of these micronutrients such as children, pregnant women, athletes and the elderly.
