Lifestream Spirulina Tablets Reviews

  • Anonymous
    State: N/A
    At age 47 I started using Life Stream Spirulina. That was just under 3 years ago. I stopped using it approx., 6 months ago and have noticed that my energy levels have lowered considerably. Have started taking it again and could feel the added energy within a short period. I highly recommended this product.

 

Spirulina, a spiral shaped microscopic fresh water plant, contains one of the richest concentrations of nutrients known in any food, plant, grain or herb. It has an excellent balance of nutrients including chlorophyll, carotenoids, vitamins, minerals, unique phytonutrients and all the essential amino acids. Spirulina is low in calories and fat and is one of the highest protein vegetarian foods. Lifestream Spirulina is a genuine health food.

Spirulina contains unusually high amounts of protein and the composition of proteins in Spirulina are absolutely unique. Spirulina is a complete protein, containing all essential amino acids. The protein in spirulina is superior to all standard plant protein, such as that from legumes.

Carotenoids are a class of natural pigments found principally in plants and algae. Animals and humans are incapable of synthesizing carotenoids, and must obtain them through their diet. Carotenoids play an important role in humans by acting as biological antioxidants; protecting cells and tissues from the damaging effects of free radicals and singlet oxygen.

The carotenoid family encompasses carotenes and xanthophylls. Lifestream Spirulina contains high levels of carotenes (including beta carotene) and xanthophylls (including zeaxanthin and cryptoxanthin).

Phycocyanin is one of the most important plant pigments in spirulina. This powerful blue protein pigment, found only in spirulina, forms soluble complexes with iron and other minerals, increasing their bioavailability in the body. Phycocyanin is about 15% of the entire weight of spirulina and is thought to have developed a billion years before chlorophyll and may be the precursor to chlorophyll and haemoglobin. Phycocyanin has antioxidant activity and is a valuable immune supporting pigment.

Studies show that spirulina, due to its high concentration of natural nutrients, has immune supporting functions and supports healthy liver and kidneys.

Spirulina is rich in (GLA) gamma-linolenic acid, an important Omega 6 fatty acid which is also found commonly in Evening Primrose Oil and Borage Oil. Lifestream Spirulina also contains the co-factors zinc and vitamins B6 and B3 that are required for the conversion of GLA into the beneficial prostaglandins in the body. Spirulina contains vitamins B1 and B2 and important minerals including Iron, Calcium, Zinc and Chromium and Iodine.

Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutritional problems worldwide ­-especially amongst children, the elderly and women (who have lower iron levels than men due to blood loss during menstruation). It is estimated that 70% of women at some stage suffer from iron deficiency. Spirulina is an excellent natural source of iron and the reason why the iron in Spirulina appears to be so bioavailable is because the iron forms soluble complexes with Phycocyanin. This iron-phycocyanin complex allows easier absorption by the body of this important mineral.

Do All Protein Powders Make You Gain Weight?
One of the biggest myths about protein powders is they make you gain weight. Protein can actually do the opposite by having many positive effects to assist weight loss. One of these being the more lean muscle we have the more fat we can burn even at rest.
