NOW Spirulina 500mg 100tabs
A source of beta-carotene, a provitamin A, for the maintenance of good health. Spirulina is a single-celled, freshwater, blue-green algae and a concentrated source of nutrients. It provides generous amounts of Beta-Carotene and chlorophyll. Spirulina also provides RNA, DNA and important GLA fatty acids.
Spirulina blue-green algae are a mixture of single celled organisms that have biochemical and cellular similarities to both plant and animal species. While these organisms have the ability to perform photosynthesis like plants, they lack a cell wall. Like animal species, they form many complex glycoproteins. Spirulina and aphanizomenon are the species that have been studied most intensively. Spirulina consists of approximately 65% crude protein, phenylalanine, iron and other minerals. The iron in spirulina blue-green algae has been found to be highly bioavailable in humans. As much as 1.5-2 mg of iron can be absorbed from a dose of 10 grams of blue-green algae. There is a wide array of evidence demonstrating that spirulina may also have anti-viral and immunity enhancing properties.
