Spirulina, an amazing blue-green algae is packed with beneficial nutrients with very high bio-availability. In this video we talk about 10 proven benefits of spirulina. We also discuss how to use it.
Hi guys,
Dr Cath here, PhD in marine biology and Founder of Spirulina Academy. In this video, we’ll talk about what is spirulina then we’ll go into details about spirulina health benefits and I will also explain, later in this video, how to use it.

So let’s start. What is Spirulina? Spirulina is an aquatic organism, typically living in freshwater alkaline lakes.

Live spirulinaEach individual alga is 300 to 500 microns in length, a size that can just barely be detected by the naked eye.

It looks like a tiny green string rolled into closely-bound spirals, like you see here, hence the name.

Spirulina is a blue green algae which is the same as saying cyanobacteria. We’ll see in just a minute why it’s important to know that spirulina is a good bacteria.

So spirulina is basically similar to other sea vegetable you are familiar with like Nori, Dulce or chlorella. But there is one major difference with these other sea vegetables.

Because spirulina is a bacteria, it means that it does not have cellulose in its cell walls but a complex of Spirulina health benefits: easily digested sugars and protein. This is why these walls are easy to digest and make the cell content readily accessible to digestive enzymes, this is a major advantage when you compare it to organisms with cellulosic cell walls like chlorella or yeast. this is the reason why it’s very easy to assimilate and the nutrients have a very high bio-availability.

Now that you know what spirulina is, what about spirulina health benefits?

Spirulina is loaded with nutrients that can have powerful effects on your body and brain. It is one of the richest nutrient and complete food source found in the world. And this is not an empty claim.

Imagine a vegetable with more protein than beef, more iron than spinach, more vitamin A than carrots and more calcium than milk.

Imagine a great source of protective phytochemicals , naturally low in fat and super easy to digest.

Well, Spirulina is all of that; an amazing cocktail of nutrients, safe for everybody.

What are Spirulina health benefits?

1. Spirulina can reverse anemia

Spirulina health benefits: anemia The first health benefits come from the fact that spirulina is very high in bio-available iron and can therefore reverse anemia.

Anemia is a common condition, even in our developed countries. The numbers are staggering: 2 billion people – over 30% of the world’s population – are anemic, many due to iron deficiency.

So with a very high content in iron (over 1,000% more than raw spinach!) and vitamin B, Spirulina is an incredible help to prevent and even reverse anemia.

It works by increasing red blood cells levels of hemoglobin and increase the oxygen going to the different muscles of the body.

2. Spirulina is a very powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory agent

The next benefit we’ll talk about today is that spirulina is a very powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. You probably already have heard about how Oxidative damages can harm our DNA and cells. This damage can lead chronic inflammation, and can contribute to cancer and other diseases such as diabetes, or cardiovascular and neurological diseases.

Spirulina is a fantastic source of antioxidants, thanks to the incredible array of pigments found in spirulina which can protect against oxidative damages.

Indeed, spirulina is rich in beta carotene, carotenoid, cholorphyll, and the most important pigment of all is called phycocyanin. This antioxidant is actually a pigment unique to spirulina that gives spirulina its unique blue-green color. Phycocyanin is about 6% of spirulina by weight.

Phycocyanin can fight free radicals and inhibit the production of inflammatory signaling molecules, providing really impressive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

And Not only phycocyanin is a powerful antioxidant it has been shown to support healthy brain functions and help support the immune system.

3. Spirulina can lower cholesterol

Spirulina health benefits: cholesterolAnother important benefit of spirulina is that it can lower total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, while raising HDL cholesterol or the “good” cholesterol

In a study of 25 people with type 2 diabetes, 2 grams per day of spirulina significantly improved these markers.

Another study in people with high cholesterol found that 1 gram of spirulina per day lowered triglycerides by 16% and LDL by 10%.

Several other studies have also shown favorable effects, but with higher doses of 4.5 to 8 grams of spirulina per day.

4. Spirulina reduce blood pressure

Another great of spirulina health benefits is that it has been shown to reduce blood pressure. Studies have shown that as little as of 4.5 grams of spirulina per day was effective to reduce blood pressure in individuals.

This is probably happening due to an increase in the production of nitric oxide, a molecule that helps the blood vessels relax and dilate.

5. Spirulina can relieve allergies

Spirulina health benefits: AllergySpirulina has great anti-inflammatory properties and also boost the immune system. These to be an effective treatment for allergies. Researchers looked at the long-term clinical effects of taking  and found that it led to significant reductions in symptoms of nasal allergies for the six-month duration of the study, with the effect growing stronger over time. So, assuming you are commit to taking it every day, spirulina will help.

6. Spirulina lowers blood sugar levels

The next of spirulina health benefits is very important for people suffering of diabetes. Studies have shown that spirulina can significantly lower blood sugar levels. In some cases, it has outperformed popular diabetes drugs, including Metformin. In most of the studies, as little as 2 grams per day had significant results.

7. Spirulina increases muscle strength and endurance

Spirulina health benefits: delay fatigue

This spirulina health benefits is one of the main reason I personally started to take spirulina. Spirulina has been shown to increase muscle strength and endurance. I’m an endurance athlete, so this is very important to me. This is why I take about 10 grams of spirulina every day. Studies have shown that spirulina is reducing exercise-induced oxidative damages, which are a major contributor to muscle fatigue. And it also improves muscle strength and endurance.

8. Spirulina can have anti-cancer properties

Okay, the next one is a bold claim but it’s not an empty claim. Some evidence suggests that spirulina can have anti-cancer properties. Some research in test animals shows that it can reduce cancer occurrence and tumor size. Spirulina has been especially well studied for oral cancer, which is the mouth cancer. But also for pre-cancerous tumors. In the description of this video I will add links to the studies I’m talking about so you can read them and educate yourself about spirulina health benefits.

9. Spirulina protects the brain from free-radical damages

In addition to its nutritional spirulina health benefits, it protects the brain from free-radical damages by increasing the activity of two enzymes: catalase and glutathione peroxidase. In contrast to simple antioxidants, which can only neutralize single free radicals befSpirulina health benefits: protects the brain from free-radical damagesore becoming inactive, these enzymes can continue neutralizing free radicals for as long as they are provided with the proper vitamins and minerals. This makes these enzymes much more powerful than individual antioxidants. When they are functioning properly, they make the brain more resistant to aging.

Spirulina health benefits include protection from Alzheimer’s disease by reducing levels of amyloid-beta proteins throughout the brain. People with Alzheimer’s disease have abnormally high concentrations of this protein, which accumulates into plaques and leads to severe memory loss and other problems. Animal subjects that eat spirulina are known to score higher on tests of memory and brain function.

10. Spirulina can help detoxify the body

And last but not the least of spirulina health benefits, study have shown that spirulina can help detoxify the body with the majority of study done on heavy metals (mainly arsenic) and radiation. Spirulina was actually used to treat children exposed to chronic low-levels of radiation after the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.  Soviet physicians at the Institute of Radiation Medicine in Minsk administered 5 grams of spirulina daily to some of the radiation-exposed children for 45 consecutive days.

They were amazed to see these children show rapid improvements, compared to the children who did not receive spirulina,

Today, individuals concerned about radioactive fallout in the wake of the Japanese nuclear disaster in Fukushima are using spirulina as one of the strategies available to protect them against the effect of radiation.

Okay, so far we talked about what is spirulina and what the ten main spirulina health benefits are.

Now I still have to explain you how to use spirulina.

How much spirulina should you take?

One important fact to remember about spirulina is that it will detoxify your body.

Spiru Dr #2How? By binding all the toxins in your body and eliminate them through your kidneys by urination. This means that if you’ve been exposed to a lot of toxins (and you’ll be surprised sometimes how much toxins our bodies can accumulate!) and if you start a full dose of spirulina, your body might overreact. You’ll feel nauseous, you might sweat a lot and maybe even have some fever.

This means that your body is overwhelmed by the work it has to do to get rid of the toxins. So the best is to start slowly.

It’s recommended to increase gradually the dosage and to build up to 10g.

I personally found that the easiet to incorporate spirulina in my daily life is simply by adding it to my meals, you can sprinkle it on your salads, it adds a great crunch or add it to your sauces for a cool green color. There are so many healthy and yummy recipe on the web and don’t forget to check out our Spirulina Academy recipe book, with recipe such as spirulina peanut butter cup or spirulina cheese cake, My favorite.

As always, listen to your body. Not everybody reacts the same way. If you started slowly and it doesn’t feel right, STOP.

When should you avoid to take spirulina?

Persons with the rare metabolic condition called phenylketonuria (PKU) (inability to metabolize the amino acid phenylalanine) should not take spirulina. Spirulina is rich in all amino acids, including phenylalanine. Also, if you have hemochromatosis (iron overload disease) should avoid taking spirulina as it is rich in iron (and Vit B12).

In this video we’ve seen what spirulina is, what are the benefits of spirulina and how to take it.
