Benefits of Super Spirulina Plus
Super Spirulina Plus contains 50% fermented Spirulina. Many of the densely concentrated nutrients in Spirulina help protect our bodies from stress and toxins. Extensive research has shown Spirulina to be a truly remarkable food source, with its phenomenally high protein content and rich reserves of many vital nutrients, including vitamin B12 (essential for vegetarians). Spirulina also contains a formidable array of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements together with rare, unsaturated fats including gamma- linolenic acid.Studies have shown that Spirulina can:
- • Help your body fight infection
- • Inhibit allergic reactions
- • Destroy infected and cancerous cells
- • Lower your Cholesterol
- • Raise your HDL (good cholesterol) levels
- • Fight obesity
Scientific studies on animals and humans have shown that Spirulina supports immune function, T-cell proliferation and antibody production. These studies have also shown that Spirulina has anti-inflammatory properties, and helps deactivate the toxins in food.
Spirulina is known to contain phytonutrients with strong antioxidant properties which support cellular health by protecting the cell membranes and DNA from damage by reactive oxygen radicals. Many of the health benefits can be obtained from eating large amounts of certain fruits and vegetables. However, Spirulina has all of these properties rolled into one.
Spirulina must be fermented to obtain its rich reserves of vital nutrients, including:
- • Chlorophyll
- • Amino acids
- • Beta carotene
- • Vitamin E
- • Minerals
- • Trace elements
- • Iron
- • B12
- • Omega-3
- • Omega-6
- • GLA
- • Plus the super antioxidants zeaxanthin and lutein.
Spirulina is difficult to digest and assimilate in its raw form, so Super Spirulina powder is the optimal way to be sure you receive all of this superfood's amazing health benefits! Spirulina is an ancient super food that is 60-70% protein by weight, a complete protein source, and rich in vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, & other nutrients.
In addition to Spirulina, Super Spirulina Plus also contains chick peas, biodynamic rice, flax seed, alfalfa seeds, millet, and quinoa.
Chick Peas are a great source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. In addition, their high fiber content prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with whole grains such as rice, chick peas provide virtually fat-free, high quality protein.
Biodynamic Rice contains high levels of insoluble fiber and contributes B vitamins – folic acid and pyridoxine – iron and potassium. Rice also contains the B vitamin thiamine, which is present in the brain. An excellent source of complex carbohydrates.
Flax Seed is high in essential fatty acids and is a healing mucilage. Flax seed can be good for the bowel system, soothe cramps and heal inflammation. It provides Omega 3 and Omega 6 oils.
Alfalfa Seeds are a good source of Vitamins B1, B2, niacin, calcium, iron and is an excellent source of protein. Alfalfa seed has a percentage protein by weight of 35% as opposed to lean beef, which has 28% protein by weight.

About Body Ecology, the company
After years of extensive study, Body Ecology founder Donna Gates created a back-to-basics approach to restoring health and vitality by understanding the invaluable balance of the human body's "inner ecology".
Donna Gates is a respected authority in the field of digestive health, diet, and nutrition. Donna coined the phrase “inner ecosystem” to describe the network of microbes that maintain our basic physiological processes from digestion to immunity.
In her 30s, Donna began searching for answers to lifetime of health issues. Several years of research and examination of her own diet led her to slowly heal from years of sensitivity and infection. She replaced her standard American diet with one rich in probiotics and fermented foods and beverages. Donna decided to put together everything she had learned into a book that would be easy for others to follow, and the Body Ecology Diet was born. Through Body Ecology, Donna is able to bring the best of medical science, naturopathy, and ancient Chinese medicine together so that everyone can access her system of health and healing.
Body Ecology offers products geared to one fundamental law of nature: the fact that our digestive systems are intimately linked to our immune, endocrine, circulatory and central nervous systems. Profoundly affecting all these interlocking systems is an amazing world of benevolent bacteria: the microscopic “good guys” that must be present in your intestines for you to be healthy.
Often forgotten or unconsidered, probiotics and enzymes are crucial to a healthy and efficient internal system. When this system is out of balance, a host of medical issues and conditions can arise.
Body Ecology's products are all designed to help cultivate, nourish, cleanse and repair the body's abundant inner ecosystem.
The Body Ecology system of health and healing is comprised of three simple dietary principals that can have a profound impact on how you feel:
• The addition of cultured foods to your diet
• Changing the quality of fats and oils you consume
• Drastically reducing your intake of carbohydrates and sugars
Body Ecology products are designed to restore your system’s harmony through effective nutritional therapy.
More about Donna’s contributions: Donna’s groundbreaking work has been instrumental in transforming the natural foods industry. Donna first introduced the natural sweetener stevia to the US in 1994. Her dedication to educating society on the value of coconut oil has turned the once-demonized ingredient into one promoted by holistic doctors and medical doctors alike.
Donna is also a key figure in the autism movement, working with doctors in the field who view her diet as instrumental in the treatment of the disorder.
Donna has certified hundreds of “Body Ecologists”, who passionately spread her teachings throughout the US, Canada, England, Australia and New Zealand.
