Below we've broken down the main functions of our Spirulina and the benefits it can provide.
Spirulina has been shown to help reduce triglyceride levels, LDL and total cholesterol and decrease the ratio of LDL to HDL in those who supplemented for 12 weeks.
The antioxidant phycocyanin, which gives spirulina its unique blue-green color can can fight free radicals and inhibit production of inflammatory signaling molecules and have neuroprotective effects.
Animal studies have shown spirulina to be an effective immunomodulator, an agent which affects the behavior of immune cells.
Spirulina is rich in numerous vitamins, minerals and amino acids and has potent antiviral properties. High intake of antioxidants like spirulina may help prevent disease and provide anti-inflammatory effects.
