NASA and Spirulina (Argentina)




NASA have done a lot of researches on spirulina and have proved to make spirulina as the best form of food for astronauts because of its ingredients. Full literature review is attached. If you don't have time look at the abstract and final two pages of the literature.

WHAT IS SPIRULINA ?

Spirulina is a blue-green algae which is believed to be the first form of plant life on earth (nearly 3.5 billion years old).

Since its rediscovery in the 1960's, Spirulina has been exhaustively and extensively tested by scientists around the world. And has proved to be the most powerful and well-balanced source of nutrition on the planet.

Tests done by NASA found spirulina to be an excellent, compact space food for astronauts (1 kg. of Spirulina is equivalent to 1000 kgs. of assorted vegetables).

International health organizations have hailed Spirulina as one of the "Greatest Superfoods on Earth".

An ideal food supplement, Spirulina provides the body with all the essential nutrients required daily, leaving you fresh, active and energetic through out the day.

Some Nutritional Benefits of Spirulina

100 times more Vitamin A than carrots!

Spirulina is the world's richest natural source of Beta-Carotene (Pro Vitamin A), which helps to improve eye sight.

6 times more protein than eggs!

Spirulina has a very high natural protein content (upto 70%). This protein is a called complete since it has 18 of the 22 amino acids that the body needs and being organic in form, has very high digestibility (up to 97%). This ensures proper utilization & assimilation of the food a person eats.

50 times more Iron than Spinach!

Anaemia or iron deficiency is one of the most common health problems of our country. Spirulina's rich content of natural Iron & folic acid helps not only to greatly improve haemoglobin levels in the blood, but being organic, is 60 times more absorbable than synthetic iron present in most of the haematinics.

7 times more Calcium than milk!

Spirulina is one of the World's richest known sources of natural Calcium which helps build strong bones.

10 times more Potassium than most vegetables!

Spirulina's potassium content (up to 10 times more than common vegetables) helps prevent hypertension.

One stop shop for Anti Oxidants!

Unstable molecules called "Free Radicals" are generated in every human body as a result of normal metabolic processes. These have been linked to ailments like cancer, arthritis, cataracts, strokes, heart attacks, diabetes and premature ageing. To combat these free radicals you need 'Anti-Oxidants' like Vitamins A,C & E, Zinc, Selenium, Super Oxide Dismutase. Spirulina is the world's richest and only natural source of all these Anti-Oxidants.

Good Source of Gamma Linolenic Acid

Fat deposits in blood vessels called cholesterol are the reason behind a majority of heart problems. Spirulina has Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), which dissolves these fat deposits, thus preventing heart problems. Spirulina is the only known vegetarian source of Vitamin B12 which helps fight stress and calm your nerves.

Immune System

Unique 'Biliproteins' & 'Carotenoids' in Spirulina strengthen the body's immune system against possible infections.

Research suggests when Spirulina is taken with anti-cancer drugs, antibiotics and pain killing drugs, toxic side effects to the kidney can be significantly reduced and shorter recovery times may be possible.
