Food that benefits both humans and the environment. Mother Earth Approved.
Fresh spirulina is the star ingredient behind all GoSpiral Farms’ products. So what health benefits does spirulina offer? It’s a blue-green alga and spiral-like cyanobacterium that represents an optimal diet staple in humans. Spirulina’s beginnings date back more than 3.5 billion years and was once used for medicinal purposes by the Aztecs. With essential amino acids, vitamins and antioxidants, spirulina is a nutrient-dense supplement that promotes healthy living from within.
This disease-fighting superfood contains up to 70 percent of quality protein (1 gram of protein per 7 calories) and has nine essential amino acids. Not only is spirulina a viable source of plant protein, but its environmental impact is also much less than a traditional protein source such as meat or whey.
GoSpiral’s fresh spirulina has the lowest environmental footprint of any medicinal supplement on the market. GoSpiral grows its raw spirulina in a closed-loop system that doesn’t require water-intensive infrastructure. The proprietary growth technology uses less energy and produces no water run-off when harvesting the spirulina. Macro-nutrients and organic seaweed are added to ensure a neutral flavor that doesn’t have an algae aftertaste.
Eating a spoonful of fresh spirulina per day can help...
- Repair nutrient deficiencies
- Reduce cancer-causing cell growth and chronic diseases
- Rengergize the mind and body with an abundance of Vitamin B
Revitalize the digestive system and support a healthy gut microbiome
Spirulina helps to improve your overall health and wellness at any stage in life. Studies have shown that eating spirulina can help manage blood sugar levels, maintain healthy cholesterol and boost the body’s immune system. Spirulina is rich in vitamins B12, K1 and Iron. Talk about a powerhouse!
Chlorophyll and phycocyanin (accessory pigment of chlorophyll) are responsible for the rich blue-green hue in our GoSpiral fresh spirulina. These pigment-protein complexes absorb energy from a primary light source and when consumed, help flush out toxins from the body.
In addition to the quality plant-based protein in raw spirulina, these key vitamins help keep your body functioning at optimal health.
4 Critical Vitamins Your Body Needs
Spirulina contains iron that helps to minimize symptoms of anemia including chronic fatigue and muscle weakness. Iron helps create red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout the body. Fresh spirulina has a high bioavailability, which means the body is able to absorb the necessary iron nutrients better than an over-the-counter iron supplement.
B vitamins are water-soluble, which means they aren’t naturally stored by the body. They must be replenished each day to maintain a healthy diet. Raw spirulina naturally contains B vitamins including thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxal (B6), and cobalamin (B12).
Plants produce high levels of Vitamin K1, which is also called phylloquinone. This organic compound is fat-soluble and maintains normal blood coagulation throughout the body. Fresh spirulina helps maintain healthy blood clotting to heal cuts, scrapes and wounds.
Antioxidants help slow and prevent certain types of cell damage that lead to illness and disease. One serving of GoSpiral spirulina is the antioxidant equivalent to 4 servings of fruit and vegetables. An abundance of antioxidants such as carotenoids in plant foods tackle harmful free radicals and maintain a healthy immune system.
