About Our Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica

 




  

            

Our Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica Powder and Tablets is grown in Hawaii by Cyanotech. We have chosen Spirulina Pacifica as we feel it is the best spirulina on the market. It benefits from a combination of pure, fresh water from Hawaiian's volcanic rock aquifers and deep ocean water. Also the wonderful weather. Kailua-Kona, Hawaii receives more sunlight than any other coastal location in the United States allowing Cyanotech to grow spirulina continuously all year.

Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica powder and tablets contains over 100 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, digestive enzymes and phytonutrients. Spirulina is actually 65% protein. Proteins are composed of amino acids, and essential amino acids cannot be manufactured in the body and must be supplied by the diet. Non-essential amino acids are needed too, but the body can synthesize them. Spirulina is a “complete” protein, which means it contains all of the essential amino acids. This easily digested protein can in itself give a boost, especially given the high prevalence of carbohydrate-rich diets.

 

Ingredients 

 

Spirulina has the highest protein of any natural food - far more than animal and fish flesh (15-25%), soybeans (35%), peanuts (25%), eggs (12%), grains (8-14%) or whole milk (34%). One tablespoon (10g) of Spirulina contains only 1.3 mg of cholesterol and 36 calories. In contrast, a large egg yields about 300mg of cholesterol and 80 calories, while providing only the same amount of protein.

Spirulina has no cellulose in its cell walls, being composed of soft mucopolysaccharides. This means that it can be easily digested and utilised by the body.DosageMany nutritionists recommend different amounts of Spirulina. New users are generally recommended to start at a low dose and build up gradually.

 Usage

A minimum of 3g a day (6 tablets or 1-2 teaspoons of powder) divided into two or more servings are needed to mobilise and remove toxins from the body. In addition, this allows for Spirulina to be combined with other supplements, such as Chlorella and wheat grass. This site only advocates taking Spirulina as a food supplement and as part of a balanced diet.

There is many spirulina smoothie recipes on the internet. Why not try this one.
