Blue Spirulina Extract Benefits and Uses

 

Blue Spirulina is a brilliant-blue colored algae that lives in a wide array of moist areas. It consists of the dried mass of either one of the Athrospira platensis or Arthrospira maxima plants and has been part of the human diet for centuries. It is commercialized as a nutraceutical for its potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antiviral properties. 

 

Chemically, Spirulina is composed of essential components that contribute to the production of energy. These include high levels of protein, vitamins A, minerals such as Iron, polysaccharides, as well as essential fatty acids. Phycocyanin, the main active compound that gives Spirulina its bright blue-green pigment, is responsible for its potent antioxidant properties.

 

What’s more is, unlike most plants, Spirulina lacks cellulose, the main component of plant cell walls that is indigestible by humans, making Spirulina easy to absorb. Anecdotally, Spirulina may have immune-stimulating effects. It is well understood that deficiency of nutrients is responsible for changes in immunity, which manifests as changes in production of T-cells, secretory IgA antibody response, cytokines and NK-cell activity. The above studies suggest that Spirulina may modulate the immune system by its role in covering nutritional deficiencies.

 

In fact, Spirulina was found to modulate allergic responses and reduce inflammation by inhibiting histamine release and regulating cytokine production. Spirulina was also found to enhance lipid and glucose metabolism, as well as support liver and cardiovascular health.
