Future Project (spirulina)

spirulina under microscope spirulina blue gree algae Spirulina is 100% natural Blue green algae and a highly nutritious micro salt water plant. It was discovered in South American and Africa in natural alkaline lakes. This spiral shaped algae is a rich food source

Spirulina contains all the essential amino acids we need and most of the nonessential ones. It also is extremely high in vitamins and minerals, as noted above. Spirulina is 85% protein, compared with just 20% in beef. In short, Spirulina is an exceptionally potent nutrient. NASA officially stated, “The Nutritional value of one kg spirulina is equivalent to 1,000 kgs of assorted fruits and vegetables.”

SPIRULINA ANALYSIS

Here is the general analysis of pure Spirulina Algae:
Protein: 55%- 70%
Carbohydrates: 15% - 25% (an excellent low ratio for fish)
Fats (lipids): 6% - 8%
Minerals: 6 -13%
Fiber: 8% - 10%

Natural Pigment Enhancers:

Phycocyanin (Blue): 14%
Chlorophyll (Green): 1%
Carotenoids (Orange/ Red): 47%


Important Trace Minerals (many of these are essential for proper electrolyte balance and osmotic function):

Calcium (1,315 mg/kg), Iron, Phosphorus (15,400 mg/kg), Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Sodium, Chloride, Potassium, Germanium, Boron.

Essential Amino Acids:

  • ISOLEUCINE (4.130/o): Required for optimal growth, nitrogen equilibrium in the body Used to synthesize other non-essential amino acids.
  • LEUCINE (5.8001o): increases muscular energy levels. 
  • LYSINE (4.000/o): Building block of blood antibodies, strengthens circulatory system and maintains normal growth of cells.
  • METHIONINE (2.170/o): Vital lipotropic (fat and lipid metabolizing) amino acid that maintains liver health. An anti-stress factor.
  • PHENYLALANINE (3.950/o): Stimulates metabolic rate. 
  • THREONINE (4.170/o): Improves intestinal competence and digestive assimilation.
  • TRYPTOPHANE (1.1301o): Increases utilization of B vitamins, improves nerve health.
  • VALINE (6.0001o): Stimulates muscle coordination.
