Spirulina is often considered the world’s most potent green superfood and for good reason. Known for its perfect balance of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, spirulina provides a treasure trove of highly bioavailable nutrients, which is the result of its cells’ biological interactions with sunlight, water and minerals.
Here at the Health Ranger Store, we’re committed to bringing you the best and cleanest lab-verified superfoods, which is why we’re bringing you a new clean lot of Health Ranger Select Hawaiian Spirulina. Our premium, ultra-clean spirulina is cultivated in open ponds using a combination of 100% fresh potable water from Hawaiian aquifers and ultra-pure, deep ocean water containing all 94 trace minerals and elements. It is then gently dried using our patented Ocean Chill Drying technology and cold-pressed to ensure maximum nutrient levels.
Grown in a Biosecure Zone, our lab-verified spirulina contains no gluten, pesticides, solvents, herbicides or GMOs. Additionally, it is non-China, non-irradiated and vegan, and has been lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology. Stock up on high-quality spirulina tablets with our convenient 12 oz and 64 oz varieties.
Spirulina is one of the oldest lifeforms on Earth and one of the best sources of nutrients ever discovered. In fact, research suggests that the ancient Aztecs used spirulina as a primary source of protein for hundreds of years. This blue-green algae is bursting with bioavailable nutrients created from sunlight, water and minerals. Almost two-thirds of spirulina is vegetable protein; the rest consists of impressive concentrations of potent nutrients that are highly beneficial for the body. Spirulina is also known as nature’s richest whole food source of antioxidants.
In addition to high levels of beta-carotene, iron, vitamin B12 and trace minerals, spirulina also contains gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) – a rare essential fatty acid found in breast milk. All these qualities contribute to the title of "perfect food.” As one of the world's most nutritionally complete whole foods, spirulina packs an impressive nutritional punch.
Health Ranger Select Hawaiian Spirulina is derived from non-GMO Arthrospira microalgae grown in the pristine, uncontaminated waters of Hawaii.
Every batch of spirulina at the Health Ranger Store is also rigorously tested for radiation by a third-party lab and is consistently found to have no detectable levels of radiation.
One of the world's most nutritionally complete whole foods, spirulina is known for its perfect balance of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It is an excellent source of essential minerals such as iron, zinc, manganese, magnesium, potassium and calcium. Furthermore, spirulina boasts one of the highest concentrations of beta-carotene in any food source, not to mention large amounts of protein, essential amino acids, chlorophyll, B vitamins, vitamins A, E, K and even gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) – a rare essential fatty acid that’s also found in organic hemp seeds.
Simply put, spirulina packs an impressive nutritional punch. Gram per gram, spirulina contains:
The human body needs protein in order to perform many of its important functions, such as tissue building and repair, as well as the production of hormones and enzymes.
It’s a good thing then that 60% of spirulina consists of highly digestible vegetable protein, as well as essential amino acids. This means that, gram per gram, spirulina contains more protein than beef, poultry and fish, thus making it nothing short of a nutritional powerhouse. This also makes spirulina a perfect addition to low-carb, high-protein diets.
One of the richest naturalsources ofantioxidants**
Where spirulina really shines is in its antioxidant properties. Not only does it boast one of the highest concentrations of beta-carotene in any food source, it also contains high levels of powerful health-promoting antioxidants such as zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, phycocyanin and lutein – all of which are known to combat oxidative stress and promote overall health.
Spirulina also supports your body's natural ability to eliminate toxins, mainly due to its high levels of the antioxidant C-phycocyanin. This, combined with the properties of all the other powerful antioxidants it contains, enables this superfood to support a healthy liver, colon and kidneys.
According to a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, the regular consumption of spirulina can support one’s healthy cardiovascular function. This is mainly due to spirulina's natural antioxidative effects. When accompanied by a well-balanced diet, regular exercise and beneficial lifestyle changes, the consumption of spirulina can also maintain optimal heart health.
According to a study published in the journal Nutrients, spirulina supplementation can support health liver and digestion functions. Furthermore, the high levels of bioactive compounds found in spirulina can promote a healthy gut.
Supports a sensible weight management plan
Due to its nutrient-dense profile, as well as its low sodium and calorie content, spirulina can support a sensible weight management plan when accompanied by a healthy diet and proper exercise, as stated in a study published in the European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences. As a protein-rich food, spirulina can also make you feel fuller for longer.
Promotes healthy metabolism and energy levels
Due to its wide array of nutrients, spirulina supplementation can help maintain healthy energy levels and support healthy metabolism. According to a study published in the Annals of Gastroenterology, taking 6 g of spirulina a day can also help promote better quality of life.
Supports healthy brain function
Promotes healthy immune function
In a study published in the Global Journal of Medicine and Public Health, researchers say the regular consumption of spirulina can support healthy brain functions. According to the study, this could be linked to the amino acid tryptophan, which plays an important role in maintaining mental well-being and cognitive health.
In a different study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, researchers from the UC Davis Medical Center found that supplementing with spirulina can promote optimal immune function and support the body’s natural ability to defend itself against external threats.
Supports the body’s natural elimination of toxins
One of the natural constituents found in spirulina is C-Phycocyanin, which supports your body's natural ability to eliminate toxins.
Many spirulina products on the market are often contaminated with arsenic, lead, cadmium and other heavy metals. This is because the same powerful cleansing properties of spirulina are also what cause it to bind to heavy metals and other toxins. Not to mention, most spirulina is grown in large commercial pond systems in China, a country widely known for pollution and contamination.
In order to address this, the non-GMO Arthrospira used in the production of Health Ranger Select Hawaiian Spirulina are cultivated in Biosecure Zones: pristine open ponds using a combination of 100% fresh potable water from Hawaiian aquifers and ultra-pure, deep ocean water that contains all 94 trace minerals and elements.
Once harvested, the Arthrospira are dried using patented Ocean Chill Drying technology. This dries the spirulina at relatively low temperatures, which ensures the retention of maximum nutrient levels in the finished product. As with all Health Ranger Store products, our spirulina is routinely subjected to lab tests for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology for every lot produced.
"Spirulina is one of the most nutrient-dense superfoods we've ever studied in the lab. It's rich in iron, making it especially beneficial for women, and its high protein profile makes it ideal for anyone engaged in fitness or exercise. I find it goes well with organic cacao and chocolate smoothie recipes."
Ideal for vegetarians, spirulina is one of the world’s most nutritious whole food supplements. Carefully cold-pressed to retain maximum nutrition, Health Ranger Select Hawaiian Spirulina can help provide consumers the perfect balance of essential nutrients. Our ultra-clean spirulina tablets are non-GMO, non-China, non-irradiated and vegan. They are also lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology.
