What is Spirulina?

Spirulina is a microscopic fresh water blue-green algae. It grows naturally in the tropical lakes of Asia, Africa & Central America and it is cultivated in Cuba. Spirulina platensis, the most widely grown species is considered to be one of the world’s few “super foods”. It is high in protein, contains all the eight essential amino acids required by man and is nature’s richest whole food source of Vitamin E, Beta Carotene, antioxidants, Gamma Linolenic acid (GLA) and chlorophyll.

Spirel tablets and capsules are perfect for use in the home as well as when you are on the move. Spirel Spirulina powder is best used at home in the kitchen, sprinkled on food or mixed with your favourite fruit or juice for a delicious smoothie. Have a look at our recipes for more ideas.

Why should I take Spirel Spirulina?
Spirulina is the ultimate natural nutritional supplement. It contains the most complete source of nutrients found in any single food. Spirel Spirulina typically contains over 65% protein, more than any other food including meat and fish. Proteins are necessary for maintaining healthy tissues, sustaining growth and making hormones in the body. Spirulina contains the eight essential and 10 other amino acids and a greater concentration of vitamins and nutrients than any other natural food. Just 3 to10 grams a day gives impressive amounts of beta carotene, B complex vitamins, iron, essential trace minerals and gamma linolenic acid (GLA). Spirulina is also a major source of iron and calcium.

Spirel Spirulina products are the most natural spirulina products on the market. Spirel Spirulina powder is 100% natural and contains nothing more than Cuban Spirulina. Spirel vegetarian capsules are filled with 100% Cuban Spirulina powder and contain no other added ingredients. Spirel Spirulina tablets are also 100% natural. Our unique tableting methods mean that no binders or fillers are used, which means that unlike most other Spirulina tablets on the market, Spirel Spirulina tablets are 100% natural. Due to the combination of their ingredients we have to add a binding agent to our Spirel C and Spirel Royal tablets, but as we use a modified form of vegetable cellulose, these products are also completely natural.

Why should I take Spirel C?
Spirel C combines all the benefits of Spirel Spirulina with Vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects the body against the destructive effects of free radicals. It is essential for the maintenance of healthy cells and blood vessels and improves resistance to colds and flu. It helps iron absorption, collagen formation, bone growth and amino acid metabolism. It boosts the immune system and helps maintain health muscles, cartilage, teeth and gums.

Why should I take Spirel G?
Spirel G combines all the benefits of Spirel Spirulina with Korean Ginseng. Panax ginseng or Korean ginseng is an energy booster. It helps maintain general health and vitality and is said to enhance athletic performance. Korean ginseng contains naturally occurring steroids which have a wide range of activities that support the body’s main processes, giving a revitalising effect.

Why should I take Spirel Royal?
Spirel Royal combines all the benefits of Spirel Spirulina with fresh Royal Jelly. Little is known about how royal jelly works, but it does contain high levels of B vitamins, minerals and various other nutrients. Queen bees feed on royal jelly and live up to 30 times longer than other female bees. Herbalists claim that royal jelly is effective in controlling the aging process, nourishing the skin and erasing facial wrinkles. Royal jelly has also been used to treat tiredness, and depression and as a general tonic for treating the menopause. Royal jelly appears to work in a holistic way rather than have any specific biological function.

Can vegetarians and vegans take Spirel Spirulina?
Spirel Spirulina products have been approved by the vegetarian society (except Spirel Royal and Spirel Gold which contain Royal Jelly). All our other products are 100% vegetable origin including our Spirel Vegetarian Capsules which contain 100% Spirel Spirulina in capsules made from vegetarian cellulose. Spirel Spirulina is, in fact, the ideal food supplement for vegetarians and vegans. It provides a natural plant source of protein and is rich in other vitamins and minerals that vegetarians and vegans commonly lack in their diets such as certain amino acids that other vegetable proteins lack.

Nutrition during pregnancy is especially important. Spirel Spirulina’s easy-to-digest protein and bio-available iron without any saturated fats is ideal for pregnant women. In India & Vietnam spirulina is prescribed for pregnant and nursing mothers. However, it is always advisable for pregnant women to consult their GP or other qualified health professional before taking any food supplements.

Can children take Spirel Spirulina?
Yes. Spirel Spirulina is perfectly safe for children. Doctors have reported spirulina’s health benefits for child victims of Chernobyl radiation. Spirulina reduced radioactivity levels by 50% in 20 days after the children were given high doses of 5 grams per day and no side effects were registered. However, Spirel products should always be administered by an adult and care should be taken to keep them out of the reach of children as extremely high doses could result in iron overdose.
