Spirulina platensis is a member of the family cyanobacteria but unlike other blue-green algae, it does not have the potential to produce toxins. The World Health Organization has described Spirulina as a super food. It is safe enough to be included as part of the daily diet for undernourished third world children and potent enough to be favored as an assistance in the fight against significant oxidant challenges like radiation.
Spirulina platensis averages 61% protein with a quality equivalent to the best biological sources like egg or whey and superior to soybean. Its 8% fat includes generous levels of the important n-3 fatty acids gamma- and alpha-linolenic acid as well as DHA and EPA. On the vitamin front, there are excellent levels of vitamin A and the B group.
Spirulina's powerful antioxidant capacity is at the root of its well documented ability to support the immune system with production of antibodies, strong defenses along all the mucus membranes and lining of the intestinal tract, as well as a balanced profile of immunoglobins. Toxins and allergens in the lungs and tissues are handled efficiently without unbalanced and exaggerated.
