Sunova Organic Spirulina Capsule



Why USFDA has approved Spirulina and put in the category of GRAS?


Aptly known as superfood of sorts, spirulina is this blue-green micro-algae which happens to be one of the oldest life forms on planet earth. This microscopic, spiral-shaped substance grows in warm, fresh-water lakes as well as the salty waters of the oceans. It is, perhaps, because of this reason that they also like to call it the ‘miracle from the sea’. In recent past, however, it is also being increasingly cultivated / harvested in various man-made reservoirs across the world, owing to its increasing popularity in the healthcare sector. Let us understand why.

What is so special about spirulina? 

This nutrient rich substance comes especially loaded with protein, so much so that it is considered to be the best source of protein that mankind has ever known. More than sixty percent of spirulina is all but protein, which is much more than that present in soyabeans, eggs or even beef and chicken. For the vegans especially spirulina is the perfect source of proteins. Besides, it also contains a whole host of essential and non-essential amino acids, apart from beta carotene, GLAs, vitamins and minerals, etc. Being blue green algae, it is also rich in chlorophyll and phycocyanins.

Remarkable health benefits 

This natural substance has high bio availability, since it tends to get immediately absorbed in our body and offers a wide range of health benefits. 

  • It helps boost energy and endurance, while reducing the symptoms of fatigue.
  • It also gives our immune system a boost and equips our body to fight various health adversities.
  • It helps purify the blood, and also detoxifies our body of all the harmful chemicals and impure substances which could otherwise lead to diseases.
  • It has the ability to lower the cholesterol levels and therefore, looks after the health of our heart.
  • Apart from helping us improve our digestive system, spirulina also paves way for weight loss by suppressing appetite. At the same time, it also has a tendency to address the problem of malnutrition, owing largely to its nutrition profile.
  • Spirulina also exhibits some significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. 
  • Apart from our physical health, spirulina also addresses various emotional and psychological issues such as stress, anxiety, depression as well as ADHD.

What makes spirulina Gras (Generally Recognized as Safe)?

Although mankind has been reaping the numerous benefits this material has to offer, Spirulina is making more and more news of late. It is becoming increasingly popular among people world-wide, and even the doctors have begun to acknowledge and appreciate the benefits Spirulina has on our health. In fact, the US FDA, one of the world’s leading food approving authorities, has recognised spirulina to be absolutely safe for consumption. The superfood has been added to the category of GRAS (Generally Recognised as Safe) foods by the USFDA, while other food regulatory bodies are also considering to follow suit. As per the US based food regulatory body, spirulina extract being used for extended purposes, such as in the form of additive in food and beverages, especially as a colouring agent, it is regarded perfectly safe for the health, as far as a person is not particularly allergic to this algae. The reason behind giving this nod to spirulina could be attributed to the fact that a) it has an intense blue green colour, which is all but natural, and b) owing to the health considerations, it is not only safe but all the more good for those consuming spirulina in one form or the other. Various food and beverage items such as gums, candies, sodas, yogurts and dessert icings, etc would not only come in attractive colours and flavours, but might also bring in good news for our health. Besides, the approval has widely been appreciated and welcomed by the manufacturers of various confectionary products, since they can also form a whole new host of colours, using spirulina as a base colour.

No Particular Side-Effects

This incredible health supplement is available in the form of tablets as well as in powdered form. It has a rather mild taste. Being safe and all natural, spirulina has no side effects. However, like anything else, it is always advisable to also check with our physician before including it in the diet - the dosage, the frequency and the superfood in itself!
