Affecting people all over the globe, chronic arsenic toxicity is a problem. According to the World Health Organization, the United States is one of the countries affected by inorganic arsenic that is naturally present at high levels.
Arsenic toxicity is an even bigger problem in the Far East. In the words of Bangladeshi researchers, “Millions of people in Bangladesh, India, Taiwan and Chile are consuming high concentration of arsenic through drinking water, and thousands of them have already developed chronic arsenic poisoning.”
In fact, up to 3% of the entire nation of Bangladesh showed clinical signs of arsenic poisoning alone! (3) As Bangladeshi researchers pointed out, “there is no specific treatment” for arsenic poisoning, which is why they evaluated alternatives like blue-green algae.
According to researchers, “Candida species belong to the normal microbiota of an individual’s mucosal oral cavity, gastrointestinal tract and vagina.” (4) What does that mean?! Well, without a healthy microflora balance in our body, we are simply much more susceptible to sickness and disease.
In fact, leaky gut syndrome and improper digestion are directly connected to microfloral imbalance. Not only is invasive candidiasis the leading cause of mycosis-related death in the United States, candida overgrowth has become the hallmark sign for most autoimmune diseases today.
Because of our shift toward a diet rich in sugar and unnatural ingredients, antimicrobial resistance and ineffective antifungal drugs, we have seen a significant rise in yeast infections since the 1980s.
Up until recently, epidemiologists have been puzzled trying to understand why people in Japan, Korea and Chad have relatively low HIV/AIDS rates. One possible explanation, revealed in a 2012 study published in the Journal of Applied Phycology, may be the amount of algae people in these areas regularly consume!
When researchers took 11 HIV patients who have never taken antiretrovirals, they split the participants into three groups: one that was assigned to eat 5 g of brown seaweed every day, one that was to eat 5 g of spirulina, and one that ate a combination of both. (10) After the three-month trial period was complete, two key findings were discovered:
Absolutely no adverse effects were experienced from both seaweed varieties and the combination.
CD4 cells (T-helper white blood cells that fight infection and are used to stage HIV) and HIV-1 viral load (another HIV biomarker) remained stable.
The results were so promising that one participant volunteered to continue the study for an additional 10 months, and this participant actually benefited from “clinically significant improvement in CD4 and decreased HIV viral load”!
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, “A number of animal and test tube studies suggest that spirulina increases production of antibodies, infection-fighting proteins, and other cells that improve immunity and help ward off infection and chronic illnesses such as cancer.”
This doesn’t come as a surprise as more than 70 peer-reviewed articles have been published in the scientific literature evaluating spirulina’s ability to effect cancer cells!
In an article published this past April, Czech Republic scientists pointed out that, in addition to its ability to control blood cholesterol levels, “Spirulina is also rich in tetrapyrrolic compounds closely related to bilirubin molecule, a potent antioxidant and anti-proliferative agent.”
When tested on human pancreatic cells, these researchers discovered that, “Compared to untreated cells, experimental therapeutics significantly decreased proliferation of human pancreatic cancer cell lines in vitro in a dose-dependent manner.” Essentially, this proves that consuming spirulina can help prevent developing various cancers!
Gerophyta nutraceuticals is a natural spirulina producer in Tamilnadu, India. Gerophyta Spirulina is carefully cultivated in clean environment and controlled conditions.
Spirulina is a naturally occurring spiral shaped blue-green algae. It consists of more concentrated nutrients than any other food, vegetables, seeds or plants, respectively.
Spirulina is a nutritious super food and contains excellent source of 5 major nutrients (Protein, Fat, Carbohydrate, Vitamins and Minerals) and 3 natural pigments (Chlorophyll, Beta Carotene and Phycocyanin). All the essential amino acids, multivitamins and biominerals a body requires can be provided by spirulina. So Spirulina is called an ideal super food of mankind.
Protein – Spirulina has the highest protein content of any natural food. Gerophyta Spirulina contains between 60 and 65% protein. Spirulina provides all the essential amino acids and is therefore considered a complete protein. Furthermore, protein from Spirulina is easily digestible due to the organism’s cell wall being free from cellulose and 85 – 95% digestible.
Vitamins – Spirulina contains both water and fat soluble vitamins and is a rich source of Vitamin B12. The Vitamin-B complex consists of the following vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9 and B12, all present in the Spirulina matrix. Most of these vitamins play a vital role in releasing energy from food and maintaining a healthy nervous system.
Minerals – Spirulina is the best natural iron supplement available and has been shown to correct anaemia, increase blood haemoglobin content and increase iron reserves. Iron from Spirulina is more than twice as absorbable as the form of iron found in most meats and vegetables.
Chlorophyll is the green pigment in Spirulina, and aids in cleansing and detoxifying the body. It is referred to as “Green Blood” due to its striking resemblance to human haemoglobin.
Phycocyanin is a naturally occurring, blue pigment in Spirulina and stimulates blood production which in turn strengthens the immune system. It is also a potent antioxidant, protecting the body against DNA damage and premature aging.
Beta-carotene is an anti-cancer substance. Beta-carotene is a source of vitamin A found in spirulina and is 20-25 times higher than in carrot. Spirulina is the world’s highest beta carotene food, reducing long-term health risks.
Essential fatty acids – Spirulina is a rich source of GLA (gamma linolenic acid), which is a precursor for the body’s prostaglandins, the master hormones necessary for many essential body functions. GLA is important for growth, development and proper immune function. Next to mother’s milk, Spirulina is the highest whole-food source of this important compound. GLA dissolves fat deposits in blood vessels, thus preventing heart problems.
Polysaccharides – Calcium-Spirulan is a water-soluble polysaccharide unique to Spirulina. This polymerized sugar molecule contains both sulphur and calcium. Calcium-Spirulan has been shown to inhibit the replication of life-threatening viruses such as HIV-1. By inhibiting viral penetration of the cell it renders the virus vulnerable to the host’s immune system.

Let Your Food Be Your Medicine -“HIPOCRATES”
It’s blue-green, absurdly healthy but often overlooked or misunderstood; Spirulina may not be from Pandora, but it grows in our version of that magical moon, Hawaii, along with other exotic locations around the globe.
This blue-green algae is a freshwater plant that is now one of the most researched, and alongside its cousin chlorella, most talked about superfoods today. Grown around the world from Mexico to Africa to even Hawaii, spirulina is renowned for its intense flavor and even more powerful nutrition profile!
While you may have only seen it as an ingredient in your green superfood beverages, energy bars and natural supplements, spiralina benefits are so amazing that taken on a daily basis they could restore and revitalize your health! To date, there are nearly 1,200 peer-reviewed scientific articles evaluating its health benefits
