In addition to being rich in protein, spirulina contains
many beneficial nutrients, at levels higher than vegetables like carrots and
spinach; phycocyanin, carotenoids (which protect cells), it's rich in essential
fatty acids,and has plenty of chlorophyll (which helps build healthy blood, and
may prevent premature aging).
With all these great components, there's no surprise that
studies confirm the health benefits of spirulina, including as a supplement for
blood lipid profiles, to help fight inflammation, as a powerful antioxidant
(for people with Type 2 Diabetes), and it even strengthens immunity (improving
activity of white blood cells and stimulating antibodies, as well as increasing
the population of natural killer cells).
As a food, Spirulina is a prebiotic (it supports the helpful
probiotic colonies in the gut), and known as an "anti-viral food".
