ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS OF SPIRULINA HIGHLY BIODISPONIBLE CONTRIBUTION OF ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS AND NATURAL ANTIOXIDANTS
Spirulina is a natural source of macronutrients and micronutrients of excellent bioavailability and it has a high digestibility from 83 to 92%, this property has been demonstrated in various nutritional tests.
The great contribution of nutrients from Spirulina provides the nutritional bases that the organism needs for its optimal performance. It contains unsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as linoleic acid, gamma-linolenic acid, which belong to the family of Omega-6, which help to balance the levels of saturated fatty acids. It also contains phytonutrients such as pigments and enzymes with antioxidant properties.
Gamma-Linolenic Acid (LGA) is the precursor of prostaglandins, hormonal substances. The AGL is synthesized with more difficulty by the body from the age of 35, which reduces the synthesis of Prostaglandin E1. That is why the importance of consuming foods that contain these nutrients, as part of a healthy habit.
