Spirulina contains the highest concentration of protein for any plant, herb or animal on a gram per gram basis. The amino acid content of its protein is very close to the WHO standard. Since Spirulina does not have a thick cell wall this protein is readily available.*

Spirulina also contains some essential vitamins like Vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), Vitamin B12.* It is also a very rare source of GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid), an essential fatty acid. Moreover Spirulina is a good source of bio-available iron.*

In addition to the above spirulina also contains phytonutrients like phycocyanin and polysaccharides that have some potential health benefits.*

There are many scientific studies that show that spirulina has potential benefits in the areas of immunomodulation, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection, cardiovascular health, cellular protection, detoxification from heavy metals and drugs and probiotic effects. The bulk of the scientific evidence supports the immunomodulation and antioxidant effects and most of the other benefits are also indirectly related to these two effects.*

IMMUNOMODULATION

Several animal and human studies have shown that spirulina supports immune function. In particular, it has been shown to promotes innate (inborn) immunity, the body’s first line of defense. In this regard it promotes macrophage function, T-cell proliferation and Natural Killer Cell activity. It is also important in the regulation of antibody production (acquired immunity). Spirulina has been shown to inhibit production of IgE and modulate inflammation. Recent studies also show that spirulina promotes IgA production in the saliva thereby inactivating foreign bodies and toxins found in food. (Mao et al., 2005; Hirahashi et al., 2002; Belay, 2002, Gershwin & Belay, 2007)

ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY ACTIVITIES

A spirulina health benefit is helping improve antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Spirulina contains phytonutrients that have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities.* These antioxidants support cellular health by protecting cells from the damaging effects of reactive oxygen radicals. Such an oxidative stress that is a result of normal or abnormal metabolism, is known to damage cell membranes and DNA (the master molecule that programs all cellular structure and function) thereby negatively changing the structure and function of the cell. The other consequence of such damaging radicals is premature aging. The phytonutrients in spirulina have been shown to have similar antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects to those obtained from eating certain fruits and vegetables. (Gemma et al., 2002; Belay, 2002, Gershwin & Belay 2007)
