Spirulina Filipina MIni Tablets
Spirulina is often called “blue-green algae.”
It loves warm and alkaline water and usually thrives in fresh and high PH lakes or ponds. The name of spirulina inevitably suggests of its spiral shape and derives from Latin ‘spiru’ meaning a weenie spiral. The scientific name of spirulina is Arthrospira.
Spirulina converts polluted air to a tolerant atmosphere.
According to the research, a system for purifying a polluted air by using algae such as Spirulina is capable of reducing carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxide (NOx) and/or sulfur oxide (SOx) in the polluted air and generating oxygen.
By radiating the light to the culture fluid in the presence of carbon dioxide, photosynthesis of the algae is promoted to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen.
In addition, the algae use the nitrogen oxide and/or sulfur oxide as a nutrient during the photosynthesis. As a result, the present system can efficiently purify the polluted air to generate a purified air, which is rich in oxygen.
Nutritional value of Spirulina (Cyanobacteria):
Spirulina, belonging to the class of Cyanobacteria single cell protein (SCP), has been used as a food source in various parts of the world (e.g. Mexico, China and Africa) since ancient times; in fact, dried Spirulina, tablet and capsule form, are now sold in health food stores in Japan, North America and Europe because they are recognized for their nutritional value.
NASA approves Spirulina as Outer Space food.
Spirulina owes its significantly growing reputation as a “space” food, to the fact that only a little amount of Spirulina is sufficient to fill us up, and therefore, does not stack up on much space. Back in the 1970s, it was discovered by NASA that Spirulina is actually a safe and practical choice of food that can be carried all the way to the space. The composition of Spirulina with all those edible bacteria and micro-organisms is what make Spirulina one of the most concentrated foods available to mankind. The space travelers, therefore, can travel light and also be reassured that they are not compromising on food, both in terms of quality and quantity. It is available to be consumed in a variety of forms, such as powder, capsules, tablets as well as flakes. That is what makes Spirulina quite convenient to carry and consume. Moreover, it boosts energy, is quite nourishing, removes toxins from our body thanks to its antioxidant action, and is also incredibly easy to digest. Hence, not at all a bad choice of food for those traveling into space for weeks and months altogether!
Eating a balanced diet is vital for good health and well-being. Food provides our bodies with the energy, protein, essential fats, vitamins and minerals for us to live, grow and function properly. We need to consume a wide variety of different foods to provide the right amounts of nutrients for good health.
Spirulina is a natural and concentrated health food derived from the synthesis of sunlight that gives you a diverse group of nutrients that provides proper and balanced nutrition.

One of the reasons spirulina is so beneficial to our bodies is due to the numerous pigments it contains. Pigments are not there just to color things; they are biochemically important to life! Without pigments, organisms could not synthesize many of the enzymes necessary for balancing metabolism.
When these natural rainbow-colors are densely seen as at the heart of what leads to the health benefits of Spirulina, one will come to recognize and appreciate it.
Pigments of Spirulina
Chlorophyll contained in Spirulina helps promote the natural blood-cleansing of the body, increases bowel function, alkalinizes the body, promotes a strong immune response, strengthens cells and detoxifies the digestive tract.
Phycocyanin is a blue pigment-nutrient found abundantly in Spirulina. Phycocyanin has been reported to have various mechanisms and applications in cancer management, complementing current cancer chemotherapy, radiation, and surgical protocols.
Carotenoids: Spirulina also contains a mixture of carotenoids, which are known as one of the most effective group of antioxidants that deactivate free radicals, which damage cells, leading to potential cancer development.
