PlanetBIO spirulina powder contains outstanding amounts of chlorophyll vitamin A, B2 and B6, iron, magnesium. Rich in protein (65% total mass), it is a welcome addition to any athlete's nutrition and a great way to start your day.
PlanetBIO spirulina meets the highest ecological standards, as 100% integrity in algae is especially important.
Free from heavy metals. PlanetBIO algae are regularly tested for heavy metals, such as cadmium, mercury and lead. Because algae bind heavy metals, such laboratory analysis are extremely important. Only clean algae that are free from heavy metals can offer you health benefits and cleansing effect.
Spirulina is a microscopic blue-green algae (cyanobacterium) that occurs naturally in tropical and subtropical lakes with high pH and high concentrations of carbonate. Because it can tolerate such extreme conditions, spirulina successfully spread from tropical Africa and Central America to tropical climates all over the world.
Spirulina got its name from its spiral shape. Because it is a cyanobacterium, it lacks a cell nucleus. Its deep green colour is the result of two main pigments found in spirulina – green chlorophyll and blue phycocyanin, which also allow spirulina to perform photosynthesis and produce its own nutrients.
Spirulina has long been used as food, as it was a food source for the Aztecs and other Mesoamerican until the 16th century. It has also traditionally been harvested in parts of central Africa for millennia.
Due to its ability to re-product rapidly, spirulina is ideal for cultivation, and at the same time it requires a lot of knowledge and responsibility. Because it effectively binds heavy metals and toxins from the environment, the environment in which spirulina is grown is extremely important.
Only spirulina from controlled organic production is a safe source of nutrients and the benefits that this nutritious algae offers to us.
- Protein – they promote growth and maintenance of muscle mass and healthy bones
- Vitamin A - contributes to normal iron metabolism, the maintenance of normal skin, mucous membranes and vision, plays a role in the normal function of the immune system and is involved in the process of cell specialisation.
- Vitamin B2 – plays a role in normal functioning of the nervous system and normal energy-yielding metabolism
- Iron - contributes to normal formation of red blood cells and hemoglobin, normal function of the immune system and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, while it also plays a role in normal cognitive function, normal energy-yielding metabolism, the process of cell division and normal oxygen transport in the body.
