Background of Spirulina:

Spirulina is the blue-green multi-cell algae, which cannot be seen by


naked eyes. Spirulina is a spiral stem generally found in fresh water,
brine and brackish water, consisting of 60-70 % protein in dry weight.
The protein elements consist of 18 types of amino acids, several
vitamins, such as vitamin A, B, E, H and minerals, fatty acids
necessary to the body.
Spirulina has been studied under various the scientific researches for
more than 20 years and consumed in more than 70 countries
worldwide. Presently, it is very useful nutritious food for preventive
and symptomatic treatment, such as antiviral activity, blood
nourishment, enhancing immunity against bacteria or foreign
substances for body and recovery during convalescent period.

competition.

. What is the usefulness of beta-carotene in spirulina?

Beta-carotene is an anti-cancer substance. Several researches revealed that taking beta-


carotene is related to cancer prevention. Beta-carotene is a source of vitamin A, which is
mostly found in spirulina 20-25 times more than in carrot. In addition, beta-carotene can help
protect chemical substances causing malignant tumor, defending chromosomal changes
causing cancer and enhancing immune system. Since beta-carotene exhibits high anti-cancer
property, spirulina can be replaced for vegetables or fruits.

. How does spirulina help digestion and absorption system in the body?

and absorption of food, prevent infection and activate the immunity. With its enormous
benefits, spirulina has become a great hit to take lactobacillus as a food supplement. Spirulina
can activate lactobacillus in intestine and help improve absorption of vitamin B2. Taking
spirulina is useful to increase lactobacillus in intestine and absorption of vitamin B1 and other
vitamin.

. Hepatitis and spirulina

Hepatitis is caused by several factors, such as virus infection, non-hygienic food or allergic
side effects from medicine. Currently, the way to treat it is to take sufficient rest and also eat
more nutrients and proteins. Spirulina can help to abate chronic and serious hepatitis because
it is composed of vitamin B12 and 60-70 % protein; protein is the important factor for
hepatitis treatment. Several researches by Japanese physicians found that spirulina can help
to abate hepatitis.

Spirulina and patient with pancreatitis

pancreas is caused by self-digestion of liver, drinking too much liquor, gallstone or eating
highly fatty food. The treatment is to solve it at its origin; for instance, if the disease is caused
from drinking too much alcohol, stop drinking can prevent it. The other treatment may be
carried out by eating food with high nutrients. As spirulina is rich in protein, high digestion
rate, low fat, high vitamins and mineral salts. Spirulina shall not cause any problem to
digestion in the patients suffering from liver disease (pancreatitis).

. Spirulina and hair loss

Spirulina is able to reduce rate of hair loss, activate hair growth, as spirulina consists of
necessary fatty acids (sometimes called vitamin F), including linoleic acid and arachidonic acid
which are the important fatty acids for nourishing hair, skin and nail. Meanwhile, they are
useful to hair root, leading to the beauty of hair.

. How does spirulina help to treat anemia?

Spirulina consists of high protein, chlorophyll, vitamin B12 and folic acid; therefore, it is able
to increase the quantity and efficiency of red blood cells, which will result in more exchange of
oxygen for better circulation within 30 days. Spirulina also gives excellent nutritive values to
the patients who long time- lack nutrients and improves health by providing sufficient vitamin
E, B12 and folic acid.

. Optic problem and spirulina

At present, more old age people suffer from ophthalmic problems, such as cataract, abnormal
retina and the symptom of other diseases, such as diabetes and anemia. Several tests from
Japanese physicians were found that spirulina could help treat cataract and stop the
development of the disease that affects vision. In the hypertensive patient or clogged blood
vessels in retina, spirulina can be taken with medicine for better results.

. Is spirulina easily digested in human body?

95 % of spirulina can be easily digested in human body as spirulina has thin cell membrane
and consists of proteins, polysaccharides, and enzymes that can be quickly dissolved into
body. It is, therefore, considered as easily digestive food. Spirulina is suited to those who have
problems about digestion or esophageal including also those old age people.

. Can we eat only spirulina as food?

food and should not consume only one type of food to prevent any lack of nutrient. Spirulina
should be consumed together with food or as food supplement to enhance body health.

. Is it true that spirulina is useful for all age?

Spirulina is useful for people of all age; for instance, spirulina is easily digested in the old age
person, whereas the sportsman shall receive great energy from spirulina. Children would
receive nutritive values for their growth, or the pregnant women will get folic acid and protein
from spirulina, etc.
. Is spirulina internationally accepted?

Spirulina has been accredited and certified by the leading institutes of the world, such as;
1967: “The International Conference on Applied Microbiology” has announced that “Spirulina
must be considered as an important future food source”.
1974: UN has announced in the World Food Conference that spirulina was “The most ideal
food for mankind”.
1974: FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) has introduced that spirulina was “The best
food for tomorrow”.
1981: FDA (Food and Drug Administration) of USA has certified that spirulina is “The healthy
and safety product free from side effects”.
1983: IFE (International Food Exposition) held in East German has awarded the prize “The
best natural food” to spirulina.
1992: WHO (World Health Organization) has introduced that spirulina was “The healthy
product in 21st decade”.

Spirulina should be taken as food to supplement the insufficient nutrients daily and able to
take with medicine or other food supplements.

. Can children and pregnant woman women take spirulina capsules?

Children should take at least 2 capsules a day by taking with milk in the morning and evening.
Pregnant women should be advised by physicians before taking spirulina capsules.

. Should we take spirulina capsules before or after meals?

Spirulina capsules are nutritional supplements, which can be taken before or after meals.
However, they should be taken 30 minutes before meals to get the best absorption.

. Can patients with heart disease, impaired kidney function, cancer or AIDS
undergoing conventional therapy take spirulina capsules?

Patients should take medicine as prescribed by physicians and take spirulina capsules as
nutritional supplements for health improvement and renew body cells. The spirulina capsules
may be taken alternately with conventional medicines. For example, if the patients take the
medicines after meals, they may take the spirulina capsules before meals. If they take the
medicines both before and after meals, they may take the spirulina capsules at bedtime.

Who to take spirulina capsules to lose weight or firm body?

During the first week, take 3 spirulina capsules 30 minutes before meals, then increase the
amount by taking 5-6 capsules in the second week, and maintain the amount of 6 capsules
before each meal, three meals a day for 6 months. Within the first month, limit the amount of
diet, for example, after taking 5 capsules with 2 glasses of water, you will feel full and then
you may skip the meal while receiving plenty of nutrients from spirulina. However, you should
eat at least one meal a day. If you feel hungry between meals, you should take some fruits,
such as guava to limit the intake calories. This will help you gradually losing weight at least 4-
6 kg within 3 months.

. The label on the bottle said “contained 100% spirulina” What does it mean?

capsule shell is about 100 mg approximately. The content in the capsule is 100% spirulina.
Other types of products, excluding our spirulina capsule, may contain starch as filler,
therefore; consumers would inevitably receive starch and may risk to molds or fungi growing
with the moisture in the starch. Some tablets are protected from mold by waxing.

. A different between drug and dietary supplement

The term “drug” means articles using for diagnosis, treatment or prevention of disease in
human being or other animals; and pharmaceuticals or partially processed pharmaceuticals
that intended to affect the structures or functions of human body or other animals.
Drug is known as one of the four essentials of life. Although the use of drug is generally
beneficial, it can have some severe side effects or adverted effects to some extents. It is
important to take with caution and consult to physicians or pharmacists before taking any
drug.
“Dietary supplement” is not a “drug”. It generally contains an optimal combination of nutrients
from natural sources. It is good source for correcting nutritional deficiency as well as
promoting health. Minor side effects from using dietary supplement may happen, especially
when compared to drug. Allergic reaction to dietary supplement may sometimes be rare and
mild.
To get the most benefit from taking dietary supplement, it is advised to consult experts or
search for more information.
There are examples of dietary supplement from natural sources including spirulina, wheat
germs and cereals, which are good sources of plant proteins, vitamins and minerals. However,
to achieve optimal health, it is recommended to have a balanced diet, doing regular exercises,
avoid stress and take some good rests.

Remark: These interactions are normally shown for 2-3 days or longer depending on
individual’s health. The interaction showed in this page is derived from scientific researches,
which can be indicated as follows: -

As the human body receives several nutrients from spirulina, it helps generate and repair cells
including red and white blood cells. The elements in the blood cells can replenish body to
efficiently resist against diseases and dispose the strange substances and toxic. This will
improve body’s immune system. The duration of these interactions is based on each
individual’s health and will be automatically recovered within 1-2 weeks. While undergoing
these interactions, one should continuously have spirulina for health improvement and
detoxification of toxic substances in the body.

How spirulina improve our health and prevent diseases?

At present, the environment is contaminated with toxic substances, including pollution of


air, food, water and stress, which are major cause of health related problems and especially to
our beloved people.

Spirulina algae
Spirulina is the ideal food supplement. The scientists discovered it since the ancient age as
the miracle plant originated for more than 3,500 million years. Recently, more than 4,000
scientists in more than 20 countries had studied, researched and found that spirulina is an
excellent food supplement and could safely help in abating several serious diseases and
enhance immunity at all ages.

Help to control overweight problems


The proper and better way of dieting should not cause deterioration, exhaustion and
emotional change. This condition can be substituted by spirulina, which is the perfect food
supplement with low fat and calories resulting in the healthy weight lost. Phenylalanine would
activate the metabolism of our body, while tyrosine helps controlling eating habit.

Control diabetes and sugar


Too much sugar level in the body causes diabetes, which is difficult to treat but
controllable. The nutrients that are specially provided for diabetic patients are beta-carotene,
vitamin A, B1, B2, B5, B6, B12 and C, Manganese, Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc, as those
are necessary for balancing the body condition.

Abate hair loss


Spirulina consisted of high protein, vitamin and chlorophyll, it is able to stop hair loss and
activate hair to be blackening. Vitamin F or nucleic acid in spirulina act as oxygen-carrier to
several cells through body and directly effect the hair, skin and nails.

Anti-virus
Several researches from Medical and Pharmaceutical University in Toyama, Japan found
that calcium extracted from spirulina gives best result in treating several kinds of virus, such
as uticaria influenza, mump, german measles, etc.

Sexual improvement and reproduction


Eating insufficient food might affect sex hormones production. Spirulina consists of Zinc
and amino acids that help to promote sexual capacity.

Tryptophan (amino acid)


Increase sexual energy and enhance sexual confidence for male

Arginine (amino acid)


Existing 80 % in male sperm, lacking of this amino acid may cause impotence or sterility

Anti-allergy
Pantothenic acid in spirulina can excellently help in preventing allergy or infection, allowing
the patient to have better life.

Renal nourishment
Spirulina consists of phosphorus 8,000 mg/g as our body needs 1 g of phosphorus to
jointly use with other vitamins to destroy limestone in the body caused by uric acid
accumulation, and then clean up the renal tube to reduce gout and gallstone in kidney. In
addition, phosphorus is a factor helping the phosphorelation process for better function of
kidney.

Suitable for the golden age-old age person


The continuous lack of nutrients from proteins, vitamins and mineral salts including the
decreasing in absorption capacity and menopause condition may affect to the change of
hormones. Spirulina is only one food in the world that mostly like the drug prolongs life;
replenish body to become distinctively young.

Cancer resistance
Cancer is considered as the second serious disease that killed human being before
appropriated age. Spirulina consists of beta-carotene preventing cancer as well as
phycocyanin and chlorophyll resisting the growth of cancer cells.

Abate inflamed stomach


Spirulina composes of high chlorophyll, which helps to heal the wound in bladder and
reduce the swollen tissue. Mesafirine, the substance found in spirulina also help to treat the
wound in bladder.

Liver nourishment
Liver needs high proteins for functioning. As spirulina consisted of methionine, essential
amino acid, to restore the liver cells being recovered from hepatitis or other liver diseases,
which almost found to be the dangerous disease.

• Consisted of protein which is 4 times higher than protein in meat and 5 times more
than egg.
• Consisted of 8 amino acids which can not be completely produced by our body, so-
called essential amino acid
• Consisted of beta-carotene which is a source of vitamin A, that is 20-25 times more
than in carrot.
• Consisted of vitamins and mineral salts at appropriate quantity upon comparing
with other food.
• Consisted of vitamin B1 more than 100 times comparing with vegetables, fruit and
some animals
• Consisted of vitamin B2 which is 5-20 times more than other foods
• Consisted of vitamin B12 that helps to enhance good memory and also prevent
serious anemia. Most people take vitamin B12 from animal livers, but spirulina
consists of vitamin B12 which is 2.5 times more than in those animal livers.
Additionally, it is suit for brain and also appropriate for the vegetarians as well.
• Consisted of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which is an important fatty acid to reduce
cholesterol, prevent hypertension, cardiopathy and free from toxic substances.

Spirulina helps to nourish brain for good health.

Amino acid is the organic substance daily desired by our body. Spirulina consisted of 8
essential amino acids that cannot be produced by our body. Lacking of these amino acids
consequently will result in the lack of raw materials that produce hormones and support brain.
Insufficient amino acids will cause several diseases. As spirulina is composed of complete
amino acids, it can replenish the nervous system, protect the brain cell and improve the brain
system.

Protein 60-70 % by Consisted of completed amino acids essentially for body and
dry weight can be 4 times easily digested compared to protein from
meat ad bean

along with reduce inflammation from sunburn
Threonine 4.17 % Contribute function of digestive system, especially intestine
for more efficient absorption
Tryptophan 1.13 % Support body to take vitamin B, good sleep and reduce
stress
Valines 6.0 % Activate the brain capacity, combine the muscle interaction,
reduce muscle pain or inflamed wound and also promote
emotional relaxing
Non-essential amino Amino acids, which can be synthesized by our body, such as
acids enzyme, protein, hormone and chemical substances in brain
Alanine 5.82 % Help to strengthen cell membrane, activate bone marrow,
originate red blood cells, reduce risk of anemia, build up
immune response and burn down sugar and organic acids in
body

Histidine 1.08 % Improve functions of nervous system, especially the organs
related to the listening ability
Proline 2.97 % Being the precursor of glutamic acid
Serine 4.0% Serve the capacity of brain cell membrane and protect nerve
fibers
Tyrosine 4.60% Slow down cell growth and regulate the hunger feeling in
Hypothalamus gland of lower brain
