Spirulina is a superfood like no other. It is a microscopic blu-green algae, prevalently grow in tropical and subtropical areas. Used for centuries by the Mayan civilization and some peoples of Central Africa, this alga is considered today one of the most complete foods that exist in nature. But what does it contain so special as to be counted among the "super foods"? Spirulina algae is rich in proteins, fats, amino acids, vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B12, calcium, magnesium and iron. Contains 25 times more beta carotene than carrots, 58 times more iron than spinach and contains 60-70% protein (compared to chicken that has 25-30%) suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
It’s so nutritious that NASA and the European Space Agency have conducted studies to see if it could be used as a food source for their astronauts on long missions.
The sportsmen are those who from the food integration with SPIRULINA can derive various and significant benefits for the purposes of performance and general recovery.
A key factor is the availability of different nutrients at the right time and in the right quantity. This element is essential to reap the benefits from training and to support performance during competitions.
Spirulina can also help to relieve painful joints and bones, relieve stress and anxiety and, thanks to the presence of phenylalanine, a particular amino acid, helps activate the satiety hormone, controlling appetite.
