Spirulina naturally acts as phytonutrient support for everyday health, helping support energy, healthy detoxification and immunity.

What exactly is spirulina?

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that has been used for centuries for its impressive nutritional value. It is a nutritional powerhouse of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and protein. Spirulina contains 60 to 70 percent protein alongside B vitamins, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, beta carotene, chlorophyll, zeaxanthin, and the renowned potent antioxidant, phycocyanin. It is no wonder that it has been coined as nature’s richest superfood!

Everyday antioxidant power

The super antioxidant, phycocyanin, provides ultimate cellular protection, helping to protect against free radical damage and oxidative stress, and supporting everyday cell function. It is also what is responsible for the blue-green colour of spirulina.

The link between gut health and immunity

Your everyday gut health is intrinsically linked with your immune system, and a healthy gut undisputedly supports a healthy immune response. Up to 80 percent of your immune system is located within your gut, proving just how much your gut flora has a significant role in your everyday wellness. Spirulina acts as a prebiotic, helping your friendly gut bacteria such as lactobacillus and bifidobacterium. These two species or bacteria are predominant strains within your gut, acting as probiotics. Prebiotics help support probiotics, helping their growth and further supporting optimal gut and healthy immune function.  It is no wonder that, when you find your immune system needs a helping hand, spirulina offers fantastic natural support.

Your go-to nutrient for health, wellbeing and immunity

Spirulina is a highly-bioavailable nutrient boost for everyday wellbeing. It is one of nature’s richest superfoods, acting as natural wholefood multivitamin and mineral support. It helps to support your daily energy, nutrition, nervous system, gut health and immunity with powerful antioxidant protection and vital nutrients when you may need more support and in times of extra demand.
