Nowadays there is a veritable bombardment of original images and advertisements advertising a number of food-related products; however, not only do their supposed qualities often fall into question, but many of them end up being criticised or mistrusted.Spirulina is a single-celled algae, with various shapes but with a unique spiral pattern (hence the name) and with shades of green and blue. This colour is due to chlorophyll and other pigments. It is a nutritional supplement with a high content of proteins and amino acids. It also contains an important amount of iron, vitamins, carotenes and minerals, and over the years its cultivation has been consolidated.
In Spain it has obtained excellent results, always under the strictest quality and health controls throughout its production processes. In fact, this Spanish Spirulina maintains a natural production method based on the ancient Aztecs who developed it with clean, mineralised water and then dried in the sun. It is fair, therefore, to consider it as one of the natural products or nutritional supplements grown in our country of the highest quality and most beneficial to health. It is, therefore, a source of energy used for centuries with multiple qualities:
- It helps to reduce cholesterol.
- Protects the immune system.
- It is a great antioxidant.
- Minimizes the effect on allergies.
- Relieves heart problems and ulcers.
- Promotes the absorption of minerals.
- Complements diets.
There are also reports that NASA includes this supplement in the diets of its astronauts.
