A blue/green algae high in essential fatty acids Omega 3 and 6 and Phycocynanin. Ideal for both horses and dogs to support the immune, circulatory and cleansing systems. It also supports gastrointestinal health.
It is a type of cyanobacteria which is a family of single-celled microbes in a spiral formation often called blue-green algae. It is known to have been used as far back as the Aztecs and NASA made it popular again when they said it can be grown in space for use by astronauts!
Spirulina is packed with nutrients and amino acids. It is a fantastic source of antioxidants, which can protect against oxidative damage. These antioxidants can help prevent fatty structures in the body becoming oxidised which can lead to many health issues.
Its main active component is called phycocyanin. This antioxidant substance also gives spirulina its unique blue-green colour.
Phycocyanin is the main active compound in spirulina which can fight free radicals and inhibit production of inflammatory signalling molecules, providing impressive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
Further research is required but one study has suggested it can help reduce anaemia.
Animal studies show links to lowering blood sugar, far out-performing some popular drugs.
Spirulina can boost metabolism and it can have an anti-toxic action. It can balance and stabilise the immune system, helps protect against infection and can help reduce allergy symptoms. Research confirms spirulina promotes digestion and bowel function. It suppresses bad bacteria like e-coli and Candida yeast and stimulates beneficial flora like lactobacillus and bifidobacteria. Healthy gut flora is the foundation of good health and it increases absorption of nutrients from the foods we eat.
