Spirulina is a freshwater algae considered one of the most complete foods on the planet.
It is very nutritionally dense. In particular, some of its nutrients such as phycocyanin (blue pigment), chlorophyll (green pigment), beta-carotene , polysaccharides such as Ca-Spirulan and the enzyme superoxide dismutase , help activate the immune system.
Spirulina stimulates macrophages (large cells responsible for engulfing pathogens, dead cells...) and this increases the production of cytokines (proteins that help the cells of the immune system communicate), which in turn affect the response and activation of other cells of the immune system.
Furthermore, it has been observed in various studies that the spleen and thymus glands improve their immune function by consuming spirulina:
To enjoy all its benefits, just take 3-5g daily in your favorite green smoothie, in a vegetable cream, in a simple shot or in a dressing sauce. Any combination is good ;)
It is important to choose a quality spirulina, and it is advisable to consume green spirulina and not blue spirulina, which only contains phycocyanin, so you miss out on most of its benefits. It must also be dried in a controlled manner, to prevent it from oxidizing and losing much of the beta-carotene.
Our ORGANIC SPIRULINE meets the highest quality standards and also comes from small organic crops. A simple daily gesture that helps your immune system. You dare?
