Vitus Spirulina Powder

 

Vitus Spirulina is a highly nutritious food source that was used by the Aztecs. It naturally contains over sixty-five per cent protein and is an excellent source of chloropyll and phycocyanin. Phycocyanin has been demonstrated to have anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and immune supportive benefits and to be liver and kidney protective1. The anti-inflammtory effect indicates that this food source will be helpful for the prevention of chronic low grade inflammation, which is intimately tied in with chronic degenerative disease prevention, such as cardiovascular disease. The antioxidant effect of this valuable food source will be helpful for "mopping up" free-radicals and maintaining cellular health. This means that even the Phycocyanin alone—which is only one of the many natural components of Vitus Spirulina—is an excellent broad spectrum supportive nutrient. It has also been suggested that spirulina may be used as a natural anti-hypertensive agent (for high blood pressure) and for balancing blood sugar levels2In addition, Vitus Spirulina is a rich source of vitamins, minerals and amino acids, including zinc and iron, and also gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Vitus Spirulina is a great all-around tonic for fatigue and convalescence (recovery) and may be used for a boost in energy levels and vitality.
