Over three billion years ago, the vibrant algae known as spirulina existed as one the oldest lifeforms on earth. Teeming with life, this blue-green algae helped transform our planet from a lifeless ball of molten rock into a thriving water planet by producing the oxygen that made it possible for other lifeforms to appear. It is one of the best sources of nutrients ever discovered, earning it the title of the “perfect superfood.”
As one of the world's most nutritionally complete whole foods, Health Ranger Select Hawaiian Spirulina Cold Pressed Tablets provide the perfect balance of essential vitamins and nutrients. However, supply is extremely limited for clean, high-quality spirulina. One of the few places left in the world to acquire pristine, uncontaminated spirulina is Hawaii.
Hawaiian Spirulina is 100% non-GMO, non-China and vegan. We lab test our lots for glyphosate, heavy metals, and microbiology. Our premium supplements also contain no gluten, soy, pesticides, herbicides, or solvents.
A close cousin to chlorella, spirulina is a blue-green algae bursting with bioavailable nutrients created from sunlight, water and minerals. But unlike chlorella, spirulina does not have the tough cell wall that must first be cracked open before it can be digested. This makes spirulina a highly digestible source of nutrition.
Spirulina is considered the “perfect food” for a good reason. As one of the most powerful whole foods known to science, spirulina packs an impressive nutritional punch. It contains one of the highest concentrations of beta-carotene in any food source, not to mention an abundance of iron, vitamin B12, trace minerals, and even gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) – a rare essential fatty acid that's also found in breast milk.
Additionally, spirulina is a superior source of protein, zinc, manganese, riboflavin, magnesium, potassium, calcium, thiamine, copper, chlorophyll, amino acids, and vitamins A, E, and K. If that wasn’t enough, spirulina also contains:
Your body needs protein and iron for many of its important functions, including building and repairing tissues and producing hormones, enzymes, and other body chemicals. Not only does spirulina consist of 60% highly digestible vegetable protein, but it also contains eight essential amino acids as well as 10 non-essential amino acids. Gram per gram, spirulina contains more protein than beef, poultry, fish, or soybeans. It is an ideal food source for those on low-carb, high-protein diets, like the Paleo diet.
Spirulina is one of the most nutrient-dense superfoods we've ever studied in the lab. It's rich in iron, making it especially useful for women, and its high protein profile makes it ideal for anyone engaged in fitness or exercise. I find it goes well with cacao and chocolate smoothie recipes.
A nutrient-dense food like spirulina is the perfect partner to a healthy diet and daily exercise routine. It is also low in sodium and calories, so supplementing with spirulina is a great way to increase your nutrient intake without gaining weight.
Spirulina's wide array of nutrients can restore alertness and help soothe away tensions. If you are an athlete or are simply looking for a way to boost your energy, start incorporating spirulina into your daily routine today.
Supports healthy cardiovascular function
Promotes a healthy immune system
When accompanied by a well-balanced diet, regular exercise, and beneficial lifestyle changes, the consumption of spirulina can help support your heart health.
Spirulina contains a diverse range of powerful antioxidants, such as phycocyanin, which support a healthy immune system and protect your organs from the harmful effects of free radicals. It also contains plenty of immune-boosting polysaccharides.
Supports healthy liver function
Encourages healthy gut flora
Studies show that the supplementation of spirulina can offer positive support for normal liver function of healthy individuals.
Spirulina contains bioactive materials that promote the growth of good bacteria in your gut. Plus, spirulina is easy to digest since it lacks the tough cell wall often found in other types of algae.
Promotes healthy cognitive function
Supports healthy vision
Studies show that consuming spirulina can help support normal brain function. The high antioxidant content of spirulina can also help protect your brain against oxidative stress.
Beta-carotene is a powerful nutrient that's converted into vitamin A in your body. Most people associate carrots with vitamin A, but did you know that, gram per gram, spirulina contains 25x more beta-carotene than carrots? Keep your eyes healthy by taking spirulina every day.
Nature’s richest whole food
source of antioxidants
Spirulina contains high levels of health-promoting nutrients such as beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, phycocyanin, and lutein – which all exhibit powerful antioxidant properties that can combat oxidative stress and promote overall health.
One of the natural constituents found in spirulina is C-phycocyanin, which supports your body's natural ability to detox. The combined cleansing properties of all the powerful antioxidants in spirulina make it an ideal natural detox food. Spirulina is particularly nourishing for your liver, colon, and kidneys – the three organs that play vital roles in naturally eliminating toxins from your body.
Since spirulina is such a great detox food, the last thing you’d want is for that same detox food to introduce lead and heavy metals into your body as you consume it. Unfortunately, the efficient absorption rate of spirulina means that it can bind with available lead and other toxic elements present in aquaculture ponds in unclean areas of the world. Most spirulina is grown in large commercial pond systems in China, a country widely known for pollution and contamination. That’s why it’s important to always get spirulina from clean sources you can trust.
Health Ranger Select Hawaiian Spirulinais 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's dried using patented Ocean Chill Drying technology that dries the spirulina at relatively low temperatures to ensure maximum nutrient levels. Grown in a Biosecure Zone, this spirulina is routinely subjected to lab tests for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology.
With its impressive nutritional profile, spirulina is the go-to supplement for healthy eaters all around the world. The people who can especially benefit the most from supplementing with spirulina include:
Those with poor digestion and nutrient assimilation
Those looking to alkalize their body in a simple and convenient way
Those on high-protein diets that would like a more eco-friendly way to meet their protein requirements
Those who have trouble gaining weight
Those who exercise a lot or
do strength training
Those looking to improve their iron levels, without consuming excessive amounts of meats
Those looking for a multivitamin
in a whole food format
Those who like to avoid synthetics, GMOs, and artificial ingredients
present in most multivitamin formulas
