NUTRITIONAL ANALYSIS
  • Proteins Spirulina is 65 to 71 percent protein,depending on growing conditions. These proteins are biologically complete, which means they provide all eight essential amino acids in the proper ratios. Most plant foods are not complete proteins because they usually lack one or more amino acids.
    • Amino acids
    • ISOLEUCINE: Required for optimal growth, intelligence development and nitrogen equilibrium in the body Used to synthesize other non-essential amino acids.
    • LEUCINE: Stimulator of brain function, increases muscular energy levels.
    • LYSINE: Building block of blood antibodies, strengthens circulatory system and maintains normal growth of cells.
    • METHIONINE: Vital lipotropic (fat and lipid metabolizing) amino acid that maintains liver health. An anti-stress factor, it calms the nerves.
    • PHENYLALANINE : Required by the thyroid gland for production of thyroxine which stimulates metabolic rate.
    • THREONINE: Improves intestinal competence and digestive assimilation.
    • TRYPTOPHANE: Increases utilization of B vitamins,improves nerve health and stability of the emotions. Promotes sense of calm.
    • VALINE): Stimulates mental capacity and muscle coordination
    • ALANINE: Strengthens cellular walls.
    • ARGININE: Important to male sexual health as seminal fluid is 80 percent arginine. Also helps detoxify the blood.
    • ASPARTIC ACID: Aids transformation of carbohydrates into cellular energy.
    • CYSTINE: Aids pancreatic health, which stabilizes blood sugar and carbohydrate metabolism. Has been used to alleviate some symptoms of food allergy and intolerance.
    • GLUTAMIC ACID: With glucose, one of the principal fuels for the brain cells. Has been used to reduce the craving for alcohol and stabilize mental health.
    • GLYCINE): Promotes energy and oxygen use in the cells.
    • HISTIDINE: Strengthens nerve relays, especially in the auditory organs. Has been used to reverse some cases of deafness.
    • PROLINE): A precursor of glutamic acid.
    • SERINE: Helps form the protective fatty sheaths surrounding nerve fibers.
    • TYROSINE: Slows aging of cells and suppresses hunger centers in the hypothalamus. Can be synthesized from phenylalanine. Involved in proper coloration of hair and skin, including protection from sunburn.
    • Minerals
    • POTASSIUM : A crucial mineral that regulates body electrolyte balance. Deficiency can cause heart arrest, hypertension, adrenal exhaustion and muscular collapse.
    • CALCIUM : The most abundant mineral in the body, it is especially important to bone and dental health, but is also involved in neural transmissions to the muscles. Spirulina supplies about as much calcium, gram for gram, as milk.
    • ZINC : The pivot point of over thirty vital enzymatic reactions, with profound effects on mental health, skin tone, prostate function and healing capacity.
    • MAGNESIUM : Deficiency can lead to spasmodic muscle disorders, including cardiac irregularities. Helps assimilation of vitamin C, B vitamins and protein.
    • MANGANESE : Activates enzyme systems, along with zinc. Promotes activity of neurotransmitter acetylcholine, and helps stabilize blood sugar.
    • SELENIUM : Originally believed to be a toxic heavy metal, but now known to be necessary for health. It retards aging, harmful oxidation and free radical formation, reduces the toxic effect of carcinogens, and improves cardiac efficiency.
    • IRON : Promotes formation of hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying blood pigment found in healthy red blood cells. Iron deficiency is most common among women in their reproductive years.
    • PHOSPHORUS : The second most abundant mineral in the human body, it is found in practically every cell. Functions with calcium to maintain bone density. Helps to digest carbohydrates and the B vitamins niacin and riboflavin.
