Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina supplies nutrients that are lacking in most of our diets. It provides athletes with long-lasting energy and reduces recovery time; it nourishes people who have digestion, assimilation, and elimination problems; it satisfies the appetite as it provides essential nutrients to weight watchers; it enables children and others who don’t like vegetables to eat their greens by taking a few tablets; and it helps busy people who don’t have time for regular, balanced meals to nourish themselves.
People with various health problems swear by Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina – it appears to promote overall health and well-being. Doctors and Scientists recommend we eat five servings of fruit Comparing Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina with other foods shows just how packed it is with nutrients: Spirulina has 300% more calcium than whole milk Spirulina has 2300% more iron than spinach Spirulina has 3900% more beta carotene than carrots
Spirulina has 375% more protein than tofu Natural vs Synthetic There is a vast difference between natural and synthetic vitamins and minerals. Being a whole-food, Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina has the important nutritional co-factors present that assist the body to absorb and assimilate nutrients.
Vitamins and minerals in whole-foods are bound to natural food complexes with other vitamins, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, minerals and trace elements. The majority of vitamin supplements on the market are synthetic imitations of the vitamin nutrients found in nature.
These products are extremely cheap to manufacture and exploit weak labelling regulations to describe themselves as ‘Natural’. Synthetic vitamins contain no trace minerals and must utilize the body’s own mineral reserves.
The human body recognizes whole-food complexes such as spirulina as real food and can digest and assimilate its nutrients without having to rob the body of the trace minerals and other co-factors necessary to complete the vitamins synergistic operation.
Natural sourced whole-food supplements such as Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina yield better results than the isolated, laboratory synthesized chemicals found in synthetic vitamins. Synthetic vitamins may cause improvement of certain conditions for a short time but the wholefood complex goes much further.
It is now believed that the unknown co-factors found in natural vitamins, and not found in synthetic forms, act as catalysts making the nutrients in whole-foods more effective. Research indicates that synthetic vitamins may actually cause nutritional deficiencies.
When you take a synthetic vitamin, it needs the co-factors normally found in the wholefood in order to complete its action. When those co-factors are found to be not present, it will draw the co-factors from your body. You may feel good for a while but when the co-factors run out, you will begin to feel worse.
Prolonged use of synthetic products cause drug like reactions, stimulating rather than feeding the body. Many synthetic supplements, especially calcium and iron, are not well absorbed and can lead to problems such as mineral imbalance. Common synthetic iron supplements can cause constipation and darkened stools, and calcium supplement users may develop kidney stones or heel spurs.
The low assimilation rates of synthetic vitamins have led manufacturers on a race to “mega-dose”, with preparations containing far higher levels than those found in nature. This can result in most of the nutrients being excreted, causing unwanted burden to liver and kidneys.
Some ‘Natural’ products are using ‘food based’ sources such as yeast bacteria for marketing reasons. These rely on chemical solvents for extraction, all this resulting in extra stress on body systems to eliminate these unwanted additives.
With many conventional foods being nutrient depleted and processed, more and more people are taking natural whole-food supplements like Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina. Extensive research has proven this miracle food to be a safe and beneficial source of health giving nutrients, so get your vitamins & minerals from green whole-food plants, NOT pharmaceutical plants!
Our recommendations for spirulina usage come from our 20 years of experience and the results of research. There are no hard and fast rules regarding spirulina usage, it’s safe in small or large quantities, and each individual will have a different requirement and preference. Just use the information below as a guide and experiment!
Unlike synthetic vitamin supplements, spirulina is a whole food, and as such is not consumed in small one or two tablet serves. We recommend a serve to be three (3) grams, that is six (6) tablets or capsules, or one heaped teaspoon of powder.
We recommend you try two or three serves each day. We also recommend that if you are new to spirulina, and perhaps not used to a lot of greens in your diet, you try half serves for the first few days and perhaps have it after food rather than on an empty stomach.
A good time to use spirulina is after breakfast, then again mid afternoon. Most people report increased energy levels after their systems adjust. You may take your spirulina all at once or more than once a day. Some people like to take it an hour before eating to satisfy their appetite.
Those with difficulty sleeping may wish to take their spirulina in the morning, rather than the evening, since the high protein content tends to wake you up.
