One of the major Spirulina benefit is found in its rich “whole food” nutrient profile known since several decades. With over 60% of protein in weight, this all-natural sea-vegetable offers a plant based protein that is very easy to digest and is rapidly assimilated by the body.
Recently amazing properties have been discovered in Spirulina. Indeed, new research shows that time to fatigue after a 2h run was significantly longer (+24%) after spirulina supplementation compare to a placebo. Researchers also demonstrated that ingestion of spirulina significantly increased fat oxidation rate (by 10.9%) compare to a placebo!
Fitness enthusiasts, bodybuilders, professional coaches and competitive athletes have reported increased energy, enhanced endurance and other exciting performance improvements with spirulina.
Intense exercise produces excessive free radicals; and excessive free radicals can cause tissue damage.
As a food supplement, spirulina abounds in antioxidants including beta carotene, tocopherols, phenolic acids, SOD—all which are proven to exhibit antioxidant properties. Lactic acid builds up in the muscle tissue during exercise and causes the fatigue and soreness you feel in your muscles.
Research studies (in vitro) also show that spirulina was able to cause a significant change in vascular tone by increasing the synthesis and release of nitric oxide (NO).
Nitric Oxide causes the smooth muscle cells of blood vessels to dilate, allowing more blood to flow through. More blood flow means more oxygen and nutrients your muscles can get to fuel workouts, repair post-workout damage and recover more quickly.
And all these benefits with a product 100% natural, vegan and gluten-free!
