A type of blue-green algae so nutrient-dense it’s been dubbed the “perfect superfood,” spirulina provides a treasure trove of bioavailable nutrients, which is the result of its cells’ biological interactions with sunlight, water and minerals.
One of the world's most nutritionally complete whole foods, spirulina is known for its perfect balance of essential vitamins, minerals and antioxidants – a quality preserved in Health Ranger Select Hawaiian Spirulina Cold Pressed Tablets.
Our Hawaiian Spirulina is non-GMO, non-China, non-irradiated and vegan, and has been lab-tested for glyphosate, heavy metals, and microbiology. In addition, the Health Ranger Store’s premium spirulina supplements also contain no gluten, soy, pesticides, herbicides or solvents. Stock up on high-quality spirulina tablets with our 3.5 oz, 16 oz and 64 oz varieties.
Spirulina is considered the “perfect superfood” for one good reason: It’s incredibly nutrient-dense. This means it contains high concentrations of nutrients necessary for optimum human health, while remaining relatively low in calories.
Not only that, 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) – an essential fatty acid that’s also found in organic hemp seeds.
In addition, spirulina is an excellent source of essential minerals such as iron, zinc, manganese, magnesium, potassium, calcium and copper.
Simply put, spirulina packs an impressive nutritional punch.
Due to its incredible nutrient profile, spirulina positively affects the body in many ways:
HEALTH BENEFITS OF SPIRULINA**
SUPPORTS A SENSIBLE WEIGHT MANAGEMENT PLAN
Due to its nutrient density, as well as its low sodium and calorie content, spirulina supplements 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.
SUPPORTS HEALTHY METABOLISM AND ENERGY LEVELS
Due to its rich array of nutrients, spirulina supplementation can support healthy energy levels and metabolism. According to a study published in Annals of Gastroenterology, people who took 6 g of spirulina a day experienced better quality of life.
SUPPORTS HEALTHY CARDIOVASCULAR FUNCTION
Due mainly to its antioxidative effects, spirulina supplements can help support one’s healthy cardiovascular function, according to a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food.
PROMOTES HEALTHY DIGESTION AND LIVER FUNCTION
According to a study published in the journal Nutrients, spirulina supplementation can support normal liver function, as well as healthy digestion.
SUPPORTS HEALTHY BRAIN FUNCTION
In a study published in the Global Journal of Medicine and Public Health, researchers say the consumption of spirulina can help support normal brain function. According to the study, this could be linked to the amino acid tryptophan, which plays an important role in supporting mental well-being and cognitive health.
SUPPORTS OPTIMAL IMMUNE FUNCTION
In a study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, researchers from the UC Davis Medical Center found that spirulina supplements can support the body’s natural ability to defend itself against external threats.
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 it the perfect addition to low-carb, high-protein diets.
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.
Where spirulina really shines is in its antioxidant properties. After all, it does contain high levels of powerful health-promoting antioxidants such as beta-carotene, zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, phycocyanin and lutein – all of which are known to combat oxidative stress and promote overall health.
Spirulina also supports your body's normal elimination of toxins, mainly due to its high levels of the antioxidant C-phycocyanin, which is known to support the body's natural ability to detox. This, combined with the properties of all the other powerful antioxidants it contains, enable this superfood to support a healthy liver, colon and kidneys.
CLEAN SPIRULINA FROM THE
PRISTINE WATERS OF HAWAII
It’s no secret that spirulina is known for its ability to cleanse even the most polluted of waters, a process it carries out by binding heavy metals such as arsenic, lead and cadmium to its cells.
However, it’s this same powerful property that poses potential problems for spirulina supplements, especially the batches and lots sourced from heavily polluted and contaminated locations such as China.
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.
Due to its particularly impressive nutritional profile, it’s no wonder that spirulina has become a go-to supplement for many health buffs around the world. Aside from them, however, here are other segments of the population who can especially benefit from spirulina supplementation:
Those who exhibit poor digestion and nutrient assimilation
Those who want to alkalize their body in a simple and convenient way
Those looking for a multivitamin in a whole food format
Those on high-protein diets that would like a more eco-friendly way to meet their protein requirements
Those who want to improve their iron levels, but don’t want to consume excessive amounts of meats
Those who are looking to avoid the synthetic chemicals, fillers, GMOs and artificial ingredients used in most commercial multivitamin formulas
With its reputation as one of the world's most nutritionally dense and complete whole foods, Health Ranger Select Hawaiian Spirulina Cold Pressed Tablets can help provide consumers the perfect balance of essential nutrients.
However, supply of this superfood is extremely limited, as one of the only places left in the world to acquire pristine, uncontaminated spirulina is in Hawaii.
As with all in-house Health Ranger Store premium supplements and products, Health Ranger Select Hawaiian Spirulina Cold Pressed Tablets are completely non-GMO and are lab tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology. They are also non-China and vegan and contain no gluten, soy or chemical solvents. Our premium spirulina tablets are available in 3.5 oz, 16 oz and 64 oz varieties.
