Spirulina Powder (blue-green algae) has powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Oxidative damage can harm our DNA and cells. This damage can drive chronic inflammation, which contributes to cancer and other diseases.
Spirulina is a fantastic source of anti-oxidants, which can protect against oxidative damage.
The main active component is called Phycocyanin. This anti-oxidant substance also gives Spirulina its unique blue-green color. Phycocyanin can fight free radicals and inhibit production of inflammatory signaling molecules, providing impressive anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.
Some people use blue-green algae for boosting the immune system, improving memory, increasing energy and metabolism, lowering cholesterol, preventing heart disease, healing wounds, and improving digestion and bowel health.
