Spirulina composition

Spirulina Compositon
spirulina new (1).jpg

Spirulina offers a large spectrum of nutrients: proteins, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, pigments, and essential fatty acids all of which make it one of the most complete foods known on earth. Unlike algae and plants, spirulina, like cyanobacteria, doesn't have any cellulosic wall, thus making its nutrients very easily absorbable by the body (high bioavailability) 


Furthermore, spirulina contains more proteins, beta carotene, iron, and gamma-linolenic acid than any other food known until now, vegetal or animal! 


Proteins: Spirulina contains all the essential amino acids, even those the body does not manufacture but produced only by alimentation. Spirulina contains an average of 65% protein. 

Spirulina for who

Lipids: The presence of palmitic, palmitoleic, stearic, oleic, linoleic, and a very high proportion of the famous gamma-linolenic acid, also called GLA (omega 6), make up for a perfect balance between saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. 




Phycocyanin is the blue pigment that gives Cyanobacteria, the family of spirulina, its name. Commonly called the blue-green algae, the Cyanobacteria contains the powerful phycocyanin -  a great anti-inflammatory agent, antioxidant, and immunity booster. Phycocyanin promotes blood and muscle oxygenation, making spirulina a true superfood! 


- Chlorophyll is spirulina’s green pigment. Present in all plants, it does the continuous work of photosynthesis. A regulator of intestinal transit, spirulina protects intestinal flora and helps detoxify the body. 


-Carotenoids: Spirulina has 10 to 15 times more carotenoids than carrots! Great for the skin and the eyes, they contain a high level of beta carotene, which is the precursor of Vit A. 


Vitamins: the presence of all kinds of vitamins except the C vitamin. 

Take note that spirulina contains all kinds of B vitamins and  has a very high content of K vitamins. 


And many more!  


Spirulina contains magnesium, potassium, calcium, zinc, iron, phosphorus, and detoxification enzymes, including SOD (Superoxide dismutase), one of the most potent antioxidants known to date, used to fight viral infections. 


All these nutrients are present in spirulina, and their natural dosage makes them act in SYNERGY to give us a load of benefits! A true gift of nature

Spirulina for who ?

EVERYONE can consume spirulina! 


  • Athletic people: Spirulina helps in muscle recovery after exercise, reducing cramps or muscle stiffness, and strengthening the body’s endurance. The structure of phycocyanin present in spirulina is close to the human hemoglobin and acts as a natural “dopant” that facilitates blood oxygen circulation. 


  • The Elderly: Spirulina prevents nutritional deficiencies caused by aging and replenishes energy. 


  • Tired people. During any challenging period or stress in life, spirulina helps keep or regain vitality and energy. 


  • Vegetarian / Vegan people: Spirulina has a high content of proteins, including all types of essential amino acids that the body cannot produce and therefore must come from food. 


  • People on a slimming diet: The presence of phenylalanine in spirulina helps to feel full and avoid cravings.  

  • Breastfeeding women, children, and growing teenagers: Spirulina is taken for its complete content of nutrients.

  • People recovering from sickness or surgery: Spirulina as an immune system booster contributes to a speedy recovery. Its high concentrations of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties are an effective shield against bacterial and viral infections.  

  • Night-time workers: Night-time workers will appreciate the boost of energy provided by spirulina, helping them fight lethargy and drowsiness. 


  • Students: Spirulina helps students during exam periods by helping maintain focus and keeping the brain sharp (always in combination with a good diet and enough sleep). 


  • People suffering from anemia or other nutritional deficiencies: As a nutrient-rich food, spirulina combats anemia, one of the most common dietary deficiencies in the world. Spirulina has the highest iron content compared to any other food! 


Reminder: If you take spirulina to fill an iron deficiency, don’t forget to combine your spirulina intake with fresh fruits or vegetables, as Vitamin C helps iron absorption in the body. Avoid taking coffee or tea within 2 hours of taking spirulina because theine and caffeine prevent iron absorption.


  • Diabetics: Studies show that spirulina helps regulate blood sugar levels. However, spirulina should NOT be treated or taken as medication. Always consult your doctor if you suffer from a sickness or a condition. See below for precautions or contradictions.  


  • Cancer / VIH patients: Spirulina is helpful for global wellness by boosting the immune system. Moreover, spirulina absorbs heavy metals by chelation. However, one should not treat or take it as medication. Always ask your doctor if you suffer from a sickness or a condition. (People under chemotherapy treatment must NOT take spirulina AT THE SAME TIME AS THEIR TREATMENT. The detoxifying effect of spirulina may decrease the efficacy of the chemotherapy). 


  • For all people in the Philippines: As our drinkable water does contain very little or no minerals at all, spirulina can help bring these minerals to us! 


Incorporated into a healthy diet and balanced lifestyle, spirulina will always give us the best, a true gift of nature! 

Precautions Contraindications

There are very few contraindications for Spirulina consumption. However, it is contraindicated for the following people: 


  • people under blood thinner medications: Blood thinners are an anti-Vitamin K treatment, and spirulina, which contains a high level of Vitamin K, can interact against these medications; 


  • people suffering from two genetic disorders: Hemochromatosis and Phenylketonuria. Hemochromatosis is the condition that leads to excess of iron in the blood, and Phenylketonuria is the body's inability to assimilate phenylalanine. People who have these conditions must not take spirulina. 


  • people undergoing chemotherapy treatment: Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy must not take spirulina during or about the same time as their chemotherapy treatments because the detoxifying effect of spirulina may decrease the efficacy of chemotherapy. However, as spirulina absorbs heavy metals by chelation, cancer patients can take this superfood only when not undergoing chemotherapy to experience all its benefits.
