Spirulina boosts the immune system!
100% Pure Spirulina, dried at low temperature.
Origin: The pristine Andes mountains of Ecuador.
Cats and dogs with healthy immune systems are more likely to be able to fight off diseases and infections. The best part of Spirulina is its immune-boosting abilities. By increasing the production of antibodies and white blood cells, Spirulina is giving your pet the means to fight germs and prevent illness. Yes, even cancer.
A healthy immune system needs a healthy digestive system
Spirulina will also boost your pet’s digestive system. A healthy digestive system is essential for a healthy immune system. To make sure that your pet is absorbing all the awesome nutrients that Spirulina provides, you need to clear the gastrointestinal tract of bad bacteria, like E. coli.
The healthier your pet’s digestive system is, the better equipped they are to fight disease.
Spirulina can detoxify your pet
Every day, our pets are exposed to toxins just by breathing the air and drinking our water. Once again, Spirulina comes to the rescue, detoxifying the system and helping to keep our pets toxin-free.
Spirulina fights allergies
Last, but not least, Spirulina can help your pets fight allergies, or prevent them altogether. Many pets suffer from seasonal allergies resulting in sniffly, sneezy, and itchy pets. Being a natural antihistamine with anti-inflammatory properties, Spirulina can give you pets a natural remedy for seasonal allergies.
What is Spirulina?
Spirulina is a microscopic algae in the shape of a perfect spiral coil. It contains the most remarkable concentration of nutrients known in any food, plant, grain or herb. It's the highest protein food- over 60% all digestible vegetable protein. It has a very high concentration of beta carotene, vitamins B-1,2 and 3, iron and trace minerals and the rare essential fatty acid GLA (gamma-linolenic acid).
Spirulina contains a number of unique phytonutrients like phycocyanin, polysaccharides and sulfolipids that enhance the immune system, possibly reducing the risk of infection, cancer and autoimmune disease. It is rich in natural carotenoid antioxidants that promote cellular health and reduce the risk of cancer. It has cleansing chlorophyll which helps detoxify our bodies of ever present pollution.
Both test-tube studies and animal-based research suggest that spirulina may help to:
Spirulina Can Strengthen The Immune System
When the immune system is stressed or suffering, it draws on the body's metabolic energy. Dogs with immune system imbalance often feel chronic fatigue and low energy. Small amounts of spirulina can help balance and stabilize the immune system, freeing up more metabolic energy for vitality, healing and assimilation of nutrients. It enhances the body's cellular communication process and its ability to read and repair DNA, like a kind of cellular tune up. Scientists around the world - in Japan, China, India, Europe, Russia and the USA - are discovering how and why spirulina is so effective for human and animal health. Hundreds of published scientific studies reveal how spirulina and its unique phytonutrients boost the immune system and improve health.
Studies confirm spirulina improves immune system function. Medical scientists discovered it not only stimulates the immune system, it actually enhances the body's ability to generate new blood cells. Important parts of the immune system - bone marrow stem cells, macrophages, T-cells and natural killer cells, spleen and thymus glands - all show enhanced activity. Scientists observe it causes macrophages to increase in number, become activated and more effective at killing germs. Because spirulina increases disease resistance in animals, even in very small doses, the animal feed industry is studying its use as a new probiotic to help replace overused antibiotic drugs in animal feeds.
Spirulina Can Improve Gastrointestinal And Digestive Health
Research confirms spirulina promotes digestion and bowel function. It suppresses bad bacteria like e-coli and Candida yeast and stimulates beneficial flora like lactobacillus and bifidobacteria. Healthy flora is the foundation of good health and it increases absorption of nutrients from the foods we eat, and helps protect against infection.
Spirulina Can Enhance Detoxification and Natural Cleansing
Researchers in Japan found spirulina significantly reduced kidney toxicity caused by the heavy metal mercury and three pharmaceutical drugs. Other researchers found rats consuming spirulina or chlorella algae eliminated seven times the dangerous chemical dioxin compared to a control diet.
In 1994, a Russian Patent was awarded for spirulina as a medical food to reduce allergic reactions from radiation sickness. 270 Children of Chernobyl consuming 5 grams a day for 45 days (donated by Earthrise Farms), lowered radionucleides by 50%, and normalized allergic sensitivities. Today our dogs are subjected to an onslaught of toxic chemicals in our air, water, food and drugs. Their bodies need to continually eliminate these accumulated toxins. Spirulina has a completely unique combination of phytonutrients - including chlorophyll, phycocyanin and polysaccharides, that can help cleanse the body.
