Spirulina is an algae with high nutrient value and benefits. It is a source of easily absorbable protein, vitamins, minerals and other substances essential for the human body. It is exactly for its nutritional value that spirulina enriches the diet for example of astronauts during space expeditions.
Spirulina first appeared on earth some 3.5 billion years ago, and is one of the oldest lifeforms on the planet. It is naturally present in shallow ponds and lakes of highly basic pH and high salinity – in Africa, Asia and South America. Tiens Spirulina is derived from the Chenghai lake in Yunnan Province in China. It is a pure area free of pollutants.
The biomass of these blue-green cyanobacteria was already part of the diet of Aztecs as well African tribes living around Lake Chad. For the present-day man, spirulina was discovered in 1940, and since mid-1960s has been researched in depth. Tiens has created a supplement, which main of ingredient is spirulina. It is source of many body building components, like vitamins, minerals, proteins being beneficial to our diet. Additionally used it cosmetology, it is very well absorbed by human tissues.
The preparation contains the dried cells of Arthrospira platensis – one of spirulina species. Up to 55-70 percent of Spirulina composition is easily digestible protein (including all exogenous amino acids, those the body cannot synthesise on its own, and hence must be provided with food). Furthermore, spirulina contains numerous polysaccharides (glucosamine, glycogen), easily assimilable macro- and micro-elements (iron, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, zinc, selenium, chromium, copper), vitamins (of the B-group as well as C, D and E), unsaturated fatty acids (GLA – gamma-linolenic acid), pigments (including carotenoids, chlorophyll, xantophylls and phycocyanin).
The cell walls of spirulina do not contain cellulose, that is why their contents are readily absorbed (between 85 and 95%) – much more efficiently than in the case of animal or plant protein.
The medicinal properties of spirulina have been studied in great detail and proven experimentally. The consumption of Spirulina benefits many vital functions of the human body:
