Enzymes, Vitamins, minerals and trace elements will help in the fight against fatigue and depleted bodies.
Phycocyanin is an excellent booster of immunity and as for chlorophyll, it will promote the absorption of iron. Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is an antioxidant that will fight against free radicals. Spirulina is indicated during certain diets (vegetarian, vegan, slimming…) to avoid deficiencies
Tests showed very satisfactory results on allergic phenomena such as asthma, atopic eczema, allergic rhinitis.
They suggest that spirulina stimulates immune defenses, inhibits histamine release by mast cells, and reduces the production of arachidonic acid responsible for the formation of leukotrienes that trigger bronchospasm.
A randomized, double-blind, 6-month study with 2g/day of spirulina versus placebo in patients prone to allergic rhinitis concluded that spirulina was clinically effective in combating allergic rhinitis.
The diet low in antioxidant, is directly linked to the resurgence of many pathologies. Spirulina is an excellent source of antioxidant like chlorophyll, beta carotene, phycocyanin, vitamin E, zinc, selenium, superoxide dismutase (SOD), etc.
Improves body performances:
For athletes, spirulina improves endurance and physical performance, promotes muscle recovery, reduces cramps, muscle tears and fatigue, but it has also been observed an increase in VO2 max and enzymes fighting oxidative stress.
Phycocyanin stimulates an endogenous enzyme lactate dehydrogenase. It will prevent the accumulation of lactic acid so feared by athletes that are responsible for cramps and muscle tears. Phycocyanin also has anti-inflammatory activity (anti-COX2). Glycogen will help delay the onset of muscle fatigue.
