Spirulina is a blue-green algae. It is an easily produced, non-toxic species of Arthrospira bacteria.

Spirulina is often used as a vegan source of protein and vitamin B12. It is between 55-70% protein, but studies suggest it is a subpar source of B12, as the vitamin is not absorbed well after ingestion.

Human evidence suggests that spirulina can improve lipid and glucose metabolism, while also reducing liver fat and protecting the heart. Animal studies are very promising as well, as spirulina has been shown to be of similar potency as commonly used reference drugs, when it comes to neurological disorders. These effects also extend to arthritis and immunology.

Spirulina has a few active components. The main ingredient is called phycocyanobilin, which makes up about 1% of spirulina. This compound mimics the body’s bilirubin compound, in order to inhibit an enzyme complex called Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate (NADPH) oxidase. By inhibiting NADPH oxidase, spirulina provides potent anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects.

The neurological effects of spirulina need more human evidence. Based on animal evidence, spirulina appears to be a promising anti-oxidant and supplement for metabolic issues.

Phytochemicals

 

Spirulina contains a number of phytochemicals with biological activity. They include beta-carotene and zeaxanthin, two powerful antioxidants that can help rid your body of free radicals, potentially damaging chemicals that form after you are exposed to environmental toxins. It also provides two unusual compounds called C-phycocyanin and allophycocyanin, which may have positive effects on your health. In addition, although spirulina is generally low in carbohydrate nutrients, it contains a unique, sulfur- and calcium-containing carbohydrate called calcium spirulan that may contribute to its beneficial effects on body function and health.
