Spirulina Crunchies™ are crunchy little bits of 100% pure spirulina. Spirulina is one of nature’s most perfect, nutrient rich foods and there has never been a more delicious way to get high quality nutrition into your body. Spirulina is a renowned source of protein, chlorophyll, trace minerals, vitamins, antioxidants and is also a world class immune system booster. Plus spirulina is known to protect against and detoxify radioactive particles and can help balance your body’s pH (alkalinity).
What is Spirulina?
Benefits of Spirulina
Spirulina and Radiation Protection
Numerous studies have shown spirulina’s positive effects against radiation. Elements in spirulina can bind with radioactive particles and help to flush them out of the body while simultaneously boosting the immune system to further protect against damage. A 1993 study in Belarus on children affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster showed that in just 20 days taking five grams of spirulina per day resulted in a 50% reduction of Cesium-137 in their systems.
In 1995 a Russian patent was awarded for the use of spirulina to improve the immune systems of people contaminated by radiation. Further studies showed that consumption of spirulina reduced the radiation load of radioactive strontium and cesium ingested in contaminated foods. So now, with radiation levels in foods rising across parts of the US and Europe due to the Fukushima disaster, it is an important time to include more foods like spirulina in our diets.
