Spirulina is a blue-green micro algae that has a filamentous structure, spirally visible only under the microscope. It is one of the most primitive algae on our planet. This way of life has renewed itself for more than three and a half million years, the oldest living natural food.
It is recognized as the most complete food of nature that is known, in addition to having certain pigments such as green chlorophyll, yellow, orange and red carotene, blue phycocyanin. These pigments offer invaluable health benefits.
Spirulina is a superfood that offers more digestible proteins than beef and contains a surprising variety of nutritional elements: vitamins, macrominerals, minerals, essential fatty acids, proteins, nucleic acids (DNA and RNA), chlorophyll, and a wide range of phytochemicals.
Around the world millions of people use it as a dietary supplement for their diet following the recommendations of the United Nations (UN) and the World Health Organization.
It is strictly true: the UN through the Intergovernmental Institute for the Use of Spirulina Microalgae against Malnutrition recommends the use of microalgae such as spirulina against acute malnutrition in humanitarian emergencies, chronic malnutrition, and for sustainable development.
Spirulina has also been chosen by NASA to enrich the diet of astronauts in space missions.
Premium protein : with 60% vegetable protein, spirulina is one of the best sources of natural proteins.
Chlorophyll : cleanses and detoxifies the body of waste and supports the function of tissues and organs.
Enzymes : Provide balance to metabolism and digestion, activating the immune system.
Antioxidants (Especially Beta-Carotenes): They increase the resistance of the body and retard the process of natural or premature aging. DXN Spirulina does not contain artificial colors or chemical additives, it is 100% natural.
Acne appears in adolescents due to hormonal change, stress, family problems and school. In adults, acne appears before immunodeficiency and in liver congestion. To have healthy skin, it is important to consume products that contain vitamin E, A and chlorophyll, this means that it is necessary to eat enough fruits and vegetables. Spirulina contains these nutrients in large quantities, nutrients that help us recover healthy and clean skin as long as these nutrients are ingested or applied in facial masks. To have the best results in the treatment against acne, you should avoid eating fried foods, animal protein and dairy products.
Allergic reactions are manifested because the body is full of toxic or irritating substances, which produces a hyper-reaction of the body against external stimuli such as: pollen, dust, animal fur, cosmetics and food.
Chlorophyll-a of Spirulina is a good ally to detoxify the body. Spirulina contains substances that react as anti-histamines and inhibit the body’s exaggerated reaction to irritating external stimuli.
In scientific research it was discovered that toxins and heavy metals that have accumulated in the brain during a person’s life, inhibit their correct brain function and lead to the dreaded dementia.
Spirulina, due to its high chlorophyll content, is an important agent in the elimination of heavy metals and toxins from cells, it helps us improve brain functions. In scientific experiments it was observed that phycocyanin, can cross the blood brain barrier, acting as a powerful antioxidant in the brain, together with the enzyme superoxide dismutase, also protects neurons from
possible damage from free radicals. Among scientists there is much hope in phycocyanin to improve symptoms in patients suffering from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Spirulina because of its high content of vitamin B12, folic acid, iron and chlorophyll, all of them easily assimilated, levels deficient in red blood cells.
5. Anorexia nervosa / Bulimia nervosa:
An increasing number of teenage women suffer from these dysfunctions, the cause in most cases is due to family imbalances that cause, among others, the loss of self-esteem of the affected person. A person with Anorexia always wants to lose more weight, even when he is already very underweight, he suffers from very low food intake, causing dangerous malnutrition. Bulimia is characterized by eating large amounts of food which is immediately expelled with deliberately provoked vomiting.
Because of its balancing action in the metabolic and mental field, Spirulina helps to balance nutrient deficiencies, without providing many calories. The amino acids tryptophan and phenylalanine, act as natural anti-depressants that help the patient overcome emotional problems and improve their eating imbalances.
This very common disease manifests itself with inflammation in the joints, pain, swelling and tension. Its causes come from food and lifestyle.
Multiple patients with arthritis testify to the disappearance of pain when they take Spirulina daily. These effects are due to the high content of gamma-linolenic acid (AGL) with anti-inflammatory capacity and the multiple enzymes that the algae possesses. The AGL becomes our organism in prostaglandin E1 which is an anti-inflammatory, also relieving pain in patients with gout or rheumatic conditions.
The cause of this condition is explained by the deficiency of enzymes that are responsible for the digestion of fats. As mentioned earlier, we find enzymes in fresh vegetables and fruits, in addition to fermented foods. The consequences of a diet high in animal fat combined with a sedentary life, entails the increase of cholesterol in the blood and the embedding of fats and minerals in the arteries: the internal diameter of the arteries decreases or clogs what causes its Once an increase in blood pressure. Spirulina, with its high content of enzyme activating substances, facilitates the digestion of fats and together with unsaturated fatty acids, regulates the production of “bad” LDL cholesterol and increases the value of “good” HDL cholesterol.
8. Candidiasis: The use of antibiotics, high sugar consumption and stress, decrease the intestinal flora that normally controls the population of candida albicans fungus. This fungus can cross the membrane of the intestine and infect internal organs through the blood vessels, decreasing our vitality. The scientists found that Spirulina nourishes the beneficial population of the intestine, especially Lactobacillus and bifidus, thus controlling the overgrowth of the candida albicans fungus, which is also responsible for vaginitis. It is advisable to maintain a low sugar and flour regime for faster and longer lasting results.
Cancer conditions became pandemic in recent years. Many scientists involved in cancer research are interested in Spirulina. They observed the activation of the body’s own anti-cancer substances. Spirulina is not a cancer medicine, but due to its rich composition in highly nutritious, immuno-stimulant, energetic and antioxidant substances, it becomes a supplement that awakens many expectations. Spirulina contains a range of anti-cancer substances that enhance its effects by being combined, such as phycocyanin, calcium-spirulan, chlorophyll-a, beta-carotene and the enzyme superoxide dismutase.
Free radicals, radiation and toxins, have a destructive effect on our DNA and our DNA repair enzymes such as endonuclease. Cells with damaged DNA can lose their self-control and become tumor or cancer cells. Water-soluble polysaccharides, unique in Spirulina, stimulate the enzyme activity of the nucleus and thereby repair damaged DNA.
The immuno-stimulating reaction of Spirulina arouses a lot of interest in doctors since its effects can be observed in patients who take Spirulina daily. A higher activity is observed in the important components of our immune system, which are among others, the bone marrow stem cells, macrophages, T-cells and the “killer” natural cells. These cells literally “eat” tumor or cancer cells.
10. High cholesterol:
Cholesterol is known to be the cause of many cardiovascular conditions. Different scientific studies have shown that the consumption of 4 grams of Spirulina daily, significantly lowers bad cholesterol (LDL) and triglycerides in the blood, while increasing good cholesterol (HDL).
Our seaweed removes excess fat and protects blood vessels; This effect is achieved by the significant presence of essential fatty acids. Spirulina has the ability to remove fat from the liver.
During illness or surgical interventions, the body loses many vitamins and minerals proper to disease imbalances and medications. To restore health and vitality, the body requires the nutrients lost during the disease, Spirulina is ideal for this.
12. Depression and Anguish: There are many medications that steal essential nutrients from the body indirectly causing depression due to lack of them. People who take antacids for a long time, the contraceptive pill, high blood pressure pills or pain relievers, are more exposed to develop deficiencies and consequently fall into depressive states.
Spirulina contains all the nutrients called “antidepressants”, it brings sunlight to our cells, clears the mind and fights depression.
In this metabolic disorder, the pancreas does not produce enough insulin (type I) or the body’s cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced (type II). Insulin is necessary to regulate the amount of glucose in the blood and to accumulate excess in the muscles or in the liver.
In scientific experiments it has been possible to observe a significant decrease in blood glucose after 3 weeks of ingesting two grams of Spirulina a day, together with an adequate diet.
Spirulina is an ideal nutritional supplement because of its high content of amino acids and few carbohydrates (17%) that are polysaccharides; They administer energy without the need for insulin. The balanced content of vitamins and minerals helps the diabetic to compensate for their deficiencies and the alkalizing action helps the unbalanced metabolism of the diabetic. Important is to mention the chromium, manganese and zinc micro-elements that help us metabolize carbohydrates and enzymes that stimulate the work of the pancreas.
Spirulina can be taken in small doses during the day to keep the level of sugars stable and avoid feeling hungry or hypoglycemic.
14. Liver, conditions:
The causes of Hepatitis can be due to viruses or drug, alcohol or drug abuse. In this case we take advantage of the regenerative and detoxifying capacity of Spirulina. Spirulina’s high protein value provides the liver with the nutrients it needs and administers the proteins that are necessary for
the synthesis of enzymes that in turn are vital to the metabolic functions of the liver. Methionine, an essential amino acid of Spirulina, has an important function to restore the liver.
15. Gastropathies: Stress and imbalance in meals are one of the most frequent causes of gastric problems. Under this imbalance the “anti-stress” vitamins and minerals of Spirulina help in parallel with a more conscious lifestyle. The high chlorophyll content whose anti-inflammatory action on the stomach lining, carries a therapeutic effect in the case of gastritis.
16. Arterial hypertension:
Different natural “tools” of Spirulina help lower blood pressure. We have gamma-linolenic acid that stimulates the production of prostaglandins, a group of hormones that, among other functions, control blood pressure. On the other hand it has a detoxifying effect on the kidneys that are important regulators of blood pressure. Enzymes help us to metabolize fats, avoiding deposits in the blood vessels.
17. Sexual impotence:
Thanks to the enzymes and nutrients of Spirulina, the hormonal glands are activated that provide the body with enough sex hormones and vitality even in old age. Many couples with infertility problems took advantage of these benefits and achieved pregnancy.
18. Poor immunity and infections: Spirulina has a range of nutrients that stimulate the immune system; Let us mention the most important: phycocyanin, chlorophyll-a, beta-carotene, polysaccharides and the enzyme superoxide dismutase. The combination of vitamins, minerals and enzymes are the ideal supplements to activate the immune system.
The effect of Spirulina on the immune system seems to be due to the important stimulation of macrophages and consequently to the production of cytokines in larger quantities, which affect the response or activation of other lymphoid cells. It was observed that the spleen and thymus glands improve their immune stimulating functions.
Different causes may contribute to the appearance of neuropathies. Some of them are: vitamin deficiencies, especially B complex, toxic, metabolic diseases (diabetes), inflammations or neoplasms. In some scientific research it was found that Spirulina, with its combination of beneficial substances on the structures and functions of the nervous system, is a unique resource for the prevention and treatment of neuropathic disorders.
It is known that the sensation of hunger is a signal of the organism linked to the level of nutrients in the blood. When hunger appears it is advisable to take 3 to 5 grams of Spirulina half an hour or an hour before each meal to increase the levels of protein and carbohydrates in the blood, which makes the sensation of hunger disappear.
Thanks to its high content of complete proteins (low fat and carbohydrates), Spirulina is the ideal weight loss supplement; Its detoxifying and metabolic stimulating effect (which burns fat) allows the patient to lose weight without rigorous diets. It is always advisable to change customs
diet of the obese, trying a diet rich in whole foods and fresh vegetables to maintain their weight at normal levels. The entire range of nutrients contained in Spirulina levels the deficiencies of an inadequate diet. This procedure allows us to lose weight slowly but constantly and without suffering from hunger. Physical exercises will always be a necessary complement to lose and maintain weight within healthy levels.
Pancreatitis is difficult to detect when it is due to alcoholism, excessive consumption of fatty foods or liver stones. When liver stones get to clog the pancreas duct, an abnormal and high secretion of pancreatic fluid occurs; The pressure in the pancreas duct increases bile secretion and the fluid returns back to the pancreas, which generates a self-digestion of pancreatic tissues due to the action of its own digestive enzymes. In this case, a balanced and easily digested diet is advised, Spirulina helps in this process and because of its high chlorophyll-a content, inhibits the production of trypsin, an enzyme that attacks its own producing gland.
22. Radiation, Chemotherapy:
After the Chernobyl catastrophe in Russia, Spirulina was used to improve symptoms caused by high radiation. With the daily supply of 5 grams of Spirulina, a significant normalization of allergic reactions was observed in children as immuno-globulin E (IgE) levels dropped significantly in the blood. IgE are antibodies produced in allergic reactions and in
defense reactions of the organism, against parasitic infections. Spirulina was patented in Russia in 1995 as a “medicine” that effectively reduces allergic reactions caused by radiation.
Spirulina helps to significantly reduce the side effects of chemotherapy such as nausea, hair loss and poor immunity.
23. Affected kidneys:
The factors that threaten the proper functioning of the kidneys are: medications, exaggerated consumption of acidic foods, the presence of chemicals in them and environmental pollution. Insufficient water intake also aggravates kidney conditions.
Spirulina “captures” heavy metals and toxins thanks to its chlorophyll molecules that converts them into chelates and eliminates them through the urine. The amino acid methionine also helps eliminate heavy metals lodged in the kidneys.
Scientific studies conducted with rats in Japan showed that Spirulina reduces the
Mercury nephrotoxicity and toxicity in 3 common medications such as the antibiotic, the analgesic and the anticancer. Spirulina’s nephroprotective quality makes it, together with high doses of vitamin C, an effective ally in the treatment of heavy metal poisoning. It becomes promising for its use in patients suffering from chronic kidney ailments.
Spirulina has an antiviral activity against several pathogenic viruses. Scientists attribute this activity in part to its sulfoglycolipid content that has the ability to increase the immune response and stimulate macrophage function. It seems that the anti-viral effect of Spirulina is indirect, since it blocks the penetration of the virus into the cells, thus preventing its reproduction.
Remember that a virus can only survive if it uses the DNA of the cell that hosts it. There is scientific evidence that Spirulina has an anti-viral activity in the following diseases:
In AIDS, herpes simplex, human cytomegalovirus, adenovirus and viruses: measles, mumps and influenza or influenza.
Some scientists suggest that regular consumption of this algae can prevent or reduce the sequelae of viral diseases.
25. View: In cases of cataracts in the elderly, retinitis, high blood pressure and hardening of the blood vessels of the eyes, there was an obvious improvement in patients, after the consumption of 30 tablets daily, or 12 grams Spirulina. This treatment should be carried out for long periods of time.
After knowing all this I invite you to consume it, share with your loved ones health and well-being, the best way to know a product is by testing it and verifying in your own organism the benefits it possesses.
THE SPIRULINA DXN IS THE FIRST RECOMMENDED BY THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION.
