Canagen Organi-Pure Spirulina 500g
ORGANI PURE ORGANIC SPIRULINA
Arthrospira, commonly known as Spirulina is one of the most nutritious and concentrated microalgal food sources available in the market. Arthrospira platensis is the predominant species commercially cultivated worldwide though Arthrospira maxima is produced in the South and Central American regions and in Asia. This multicelluar microalga is popular as an ingredient in functional foods and beverages like green foods and drinks, energy bars and as a food supplement in the form of powder, tablets and capsules.
Spirulina has a long history of human consumption. Currently Spirulina is used as a nutraceutical ingredient due to its unique combination of phytonutrients like phycocyanin, carotenes, xanthophylls, GLA, galactolipids, sulfolipids, chlorophyll and minerals. Spirulina produced as per the organic standards or conventional methods are available in the world market to meet varied customer preferences. ORGANI-PURE Organic Spirulina is produced as per USDA NOP norms and also meets private organic standards like Naturland (Germany), Ecocert (France) and OCIA (USA).
ORGANI-PURE Organic Spirulina is grown in one of the most environmentally pure, pristine, pollution free and least inhabited areas of the world Inner Mongolia. Our plant is located in Etuoke Spirulina Park the largest agglomeration of alkaline lakes in the world in the most isolated part of Inner Mongolia. With a production area of 80 acres it is situated over 350 km from the nearest town, factory or building, thus guaranteeing and ensuring that ORGANI-PURE is grown in highly pure and pollution-free environment.
ORGANI-PURE Organic Spirulina is 100% naturally and organically grown, with absolutely no herbicides, pesticides or chemicals whatsoever, in fully covered pools with no possibility of external pollution and contamination, using naturally pure water which is pumped from 450 metres beneath the earth’s surface and therefore contains less than 1 ppm of total heavy metals.
The natural growing process coupled with the area’s intense sunlight ensures that ORGANI-PURE Spirulina is super-rich in nutrients with the highest Phycocyanin, Protein, Chlorophyll, Vitamin B and Amino Acids content.
To ensure the most stringent product quality controls, our plant is ISO 9001, GMP and HACCP Certified and each batch is thoroughly analayzed and tested in our laboratories three times before it is released for packing. It is then immediately packed, at source, in vacuum sealed foil pouches to prevent naturally occuring oxidation and light degradation and to ensure optimal freshness, purity and consumer safety.
Health Benefits of Spirulina
The health benefits of Spirulina are widely researched. Spirulina can help with
- Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD)
- Type 2 diabetes, dyslipidemia & hypertension
- Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
- Neurodegenerative disorders and cerebrovascular disease.
Spirulina is a potent mixture of antioxidants and most of Spirulina’s health benefits are associated with its antioxidant pigments. These are carotenoids (mixture of carotenes and xanthophylls), chlorophyll and the unique blue pigment phycocyanin. Among these pigments, the xanthophyll zeaxanthin is rare in nature, and 3 g Spirulina can provide adequate quantities of this very valuable xanthophyll. Phycocyanin is even rarer in our diet and 3 g Spirulina can provide adequate quantities of this highly beneficial pigment. Phycocyanin can provide excellent health benefits as discussed in this article, and supplementing the diet with Spirulina is the easiest way to obtain it. Spirulina supplementation may help in managing age related health conditions such as ARMD, Type 2 Diabetes, NAFLD, Neurodegenerative Disorders and Cerebrovascular Disease.
