Spirulina also contains from 55 to 70% of its weight on different proteins and the weakness of soybeans and three times more than beef.
What raises a lot of attention in terms of nutrition, it contains all the essential amino acids the eight that can not be of the human body made himself and there is another advantage which is that spirulina is much easier in the digestion of other food supplements such as yeast or Chlorella and its cells are not protected by thick walls of cellulose, which makes it has a “rate of digestion” in the level of from 83 to 90%.

The extraction of spirulina from the lakes and then dried in dry air pure Andes and leaves in the sun for 12 hours at moderate temperatures (40 ° C), this exposure to the sun enhances photosynthesis to make optimal use of focus and maintain the vitamins and phytonutrients, which makes the quality of spirulina in place first.
Composition of Spirulina:
Spirulina algae is very rich, food analysis has shown that spirulina conducted on other benefits, including the riches in minerals (magnesium, phosphorus, calcium) as well as gamma-linolenic acid (4% dry weight of Spirulina).

Vitamin “A” (pro-vitamin), B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8, B9 (folic acid), B12 and vitamin E (biotin), this wealth of vitamins, covering the vast majority of the daily food requirements, and furthermore that when the This needs extra as is the case in the diet for Weight Loss and pregnant women or among vegetarians, as well as this protein is rich in minerals and trace elements such as iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, molybdenum, selenium, zinc and copper to prevent nutritional deficiencies and pigments such as chlorophyll, beta carotene, carotenoids , dismutase .. Its powerful antioxidants that fight actively against the free radicals responsible for aging of cells and accumulate a lot during intense physical effort, causing amplification reactions.

Describes some of spirulina as a “super vegetables” such as the people of the ancient Aztecs, who they described as “green gold”.
Today there are many university laboratories, researchers are studying the effect of spirulina in a variety of interactions such as inhibition of HIV transmission from mother to child and protect healthy tissue during radiation treatment for cancer or to strengthen the immune system.. It is indeed a real treasure!
