Good Morning, SixPackAbs.com – Thomas Delauer here today to break down the #1 most-nutritious superfood ever. I’ll be breaking down the science behind how it helps you detox, what it does within the body, and, quite frankly, what it is… I’m talking about Spirulina.
Let’s get right to it:
0:35 – Spirulina is a microalgae that’s been consumed for centuries.
0:56 – Spirulina is one of the most nutrient-dense foods. It’s made up of 60-70% protein. Gram for gram, Spirulina is the most protein dense food in the world.
1:28 – When consuming spirulina, you’re getting 10 non-essential and 8 essential amino acids in a full vegan/vegetarian form.
1:47 – Spirulina is high in chlorophyll – one key component to detoxing. Spirulina contains 10 times more than any other green vegetable out there.
2:13 – Chlorophyll helps build red blood cells. When combined with the magnesium also found in spirulina, this causes a powerful detoxing process of toxins out of the body that also helps oxygenate your blood, helping to also relieve oxidative stress.
3:13 – One study published in the Journal of Clinical Toxicology looking at patients having arsenic poisoning and the effects of using spirulina to remove the toxin from their bodies. Results showed that spirulina extract plus zinc twice daily for 16 weeks may be useful for the treatment of chronic arsenic poisoning.
4:07 – Phycocyanin is cyanobacteria that exhibit a blue pigment in Spirulina, while allophycocyanin is a protein that exhibits a red pigment in spirulina. The presence of both of these helps to naturally increase white blood cell levels.
