“SPIRULINA: Best Food for the Future” declared by United Nations World Conference of 1974

What is Spirulina?

Spirulina is a simple one-celled microscopic blue green algae which has been growing naturally for centuries in alkaline waters. Its cells form the shape of a coiled spring; thus the name Spirulina, which means “little spiral.”

For thousands of years, Spirulina has been consumed as a traditional food by people of various cultures all over the world. (America, Africa and now in Asia)

It is a vegetable plankton and has the highest conversion rate of sunlight (8%) as compared to other plants (3%-5%). Hence, it is referred to as “Food from Sunlight” and it brings to us in its most potent form all the nutritional benefits derived from synthesis of the sun’s light. It is a complete vegetable protein and is the source of all the vitamins, minerals, digestive enzymes, trace elements, cell salts and chlorophyll our body and brain need for perfect nutrition.

Below are results of chemical analysis of Aztec Spirulina from Sentrotek and Intertek.

WONDERS OF SPIRULINA 1 tsp. granules = 2 capsules

It also contains Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids known to protect the heart.
CONTENT: Protein-Amino Acids, Phycocyanin, Potassium, Omega fatty acids
RECOMMENDED INTAKE: 9 capsules a day

Regulates Cholesterol Level

Spirulina balances our cholesterol levels by increasing our “Good Cholesterol” and decreasing our “Bad Cholesterol”. Fiber acts to inhibit absorption of cholesterol, it flushes unwanted cholesterol out of the body.
CONTENT: Fiber, Phycocyanin, Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA)
RECOMMENDED INTAKE: 9 capsules a day

Regulates Blood Sugar Levels

Spirulina is good for those who suffer from Diabetes. Spirulina increases the activity of the hexokinase enzyme and the glucose-6-phosphatase activity, thus controlling blood sugar levels.
CONTENT: Proteins – Amino Acids, GLA
RECOMMENDED INTAKE: 4 capsules a day, *9 capsules a day (Before Meals)

Aids in Dieting and Slimming

Spirulina is good for weight loss. It does not make you feel weak even when you are on a weight loss program. It has high protein content and complete in Amino Acids. One of the amino acids, Lysine plays an essential role in Carnitine production. Carnitine is required for the break down of fats. Because of its concentrated, easily digestible, rich nutrition, Spirulina eliminates the appetite’s cravings.
CONTENT: Protein-Amino Acids, Fiber
RECOMMENDED INTAKE: Consume 5grams 30 minutes before meals

Normalizes Absorption and Digestion

A good dosage of Spirulina stimulates the lactobacteria essential in digestion, stimulates them to a high level of activity and prevents their depletion, or total extinction. Spirulina provides relief to elderlies burdened with chronic constipation and undernourishment (poor food digestion and absorption). If left unchecked, this may lead to colon cancer.
CONTENT: Probiotic, Vitamin B-Complex
RECOMMENDED INTAKE: 4 capsules a day, *8capsules a day

Helps Prevent Constipation

Aztec Spirulina has no hard cellulose walls making it easy to digest. This helps people with digestive or absorption defects. Aztec Spirulina has a number of enzymes that act as catalyst in digestion. It aids us to have regular bowel movement and regulates water absorption (Potassium) that takes place inside the intestines. With dietary fiber from Aztec Spirulina, our bowel movement is stimulated in a natural way.
CONTENT: Fiber, Potassium, Vitamin B-Complex
RECOMMENDED INTAKE: 4 capsules a day, *8 capsules a day

Detoxifies the Body

Spirulina is taken daily to get rid of toxins. This is because it contains Chlorophyll, a powerful blood cleanser. Spirulina works by flushing out toxins from the cells into the blood stream and takes it out of the body through normal elimination process. This is the reason why we often have dark, fatty stools or even a slight diarrhea when we are taking Spirulina. This is the way to cleanse our body of toxins.
CONTENT: Chlorophyll, GLA
RECOMMENDED INTAKE: 6 capsules a day

Helps Maintain Better Muscle Tone

Protein is the building block of muscles. For those who want to build muscles or those who need muscle-repair, here is a protein source that is good for you. Aztec Spirulina is composed of 60-70 % protein that is easily digestible and easily converted to energy – good for body builders and growing children. Spirulina can help the body up after a workout but it can also be used before workouts to extend muscular endurance.
CONTENT: Protein
RECOMMENDED INTAKE: 4 capsules a day
For body builders – you can add 2 capsules before work out

Strengthens Bones

Aztec Spirulina contains Calcium which is needed for healthy bones. For children, Aztec Spirulina provides Calcium for stronger growing bones. For adults, it maintains Calcium in the bones preventing osteoporosis and weakening of the bones. Aztec Spirulina contains Leucine, an essential amino acid. This amino acid helps repair bones in case of a fracture or traumatic injury.
CONTENT: Calcium, Amino Acid – Leucine

Establishes Good Sleeping Habits

Spirulina helps to correct your sleep cycle and helps you obtain proper sleeping habits. One of the Amino Acids contained by Spirulina is Tryptophan which is responsible for the production of Melatonin and Serotonin.

CONTENT: Amino Acid-Tryptophan
RECOMMENDED INTAKE: 4 capsules a day

Helps in recovery from RADIATION Exposure

Spirulina promotes the evacuation of radionucleides (harmful substances from radiation) from the body through the use of Gamma-linolenic acid. Phycocyanin, a biliprotein from spirulina has strong antioxidant properties that protects the body from harmful substances . It is also found that patients undergoing radiation therapy can recover rapidly through spirulina. Research found out that spirulina does not only help eliminate harmful effects of radiation but also helps cells to recover from damages caused by radioactive substances.

Lowers Risk of CANCER

Aztec Spirulina contains high amount of Beta Carotene, 25 times more than what carrot has. Beta Carotene is proven to fight against cancer cell growth. It works by eliminating or removing carcinogens (cancer-causing substances) from the body. Another anti-cancer property of Spirulina is phycocyanin, the blue pigment in Spirulina. According to studies, cancer cells die when exposed to phycocyanin. Aztec Spirulina also contains vitamin E and Selenium. When these two combine, they form a powerful antioxidant fighting against cell damage that might lead to cell mutation known as cancer.
