psyllium husk powder - Psyllium Husks Powder is the strongest natural dietary fiber for promoting regularity and supporting heart health. It is most effective when used everyday, and can be used as long as desired. I use it for thickening foods, like dips, or pies, etc.
spirulina - This is the most nutrient-rich blue-green algae in the world. This algae is grown in ponds filled with diluted ocean water drawn from a pipeline that plunges 2000 feet into the sea. Oceanographers state that this water has been below the surface since Old Testament times. This pipeline brings this ultra-pure, mineral rich water to supplement the Spirulina's growing environment with calcium, magnesium, and all the essential trace elements. No other Spirulina is grown with such a rich source of naturally occurring nutrients and minerals. This allows the plant to reach its maximum mineral capacity.
A cool ocean breeze drying method protects phytonutrients and enzymes. This product is packaged in brown glass with oxygen absorbers and sealing caps to protect the nutrients resulting in a high level of antioxidant quality when you receive it.
This Hawaiian Spirulina delivers:
• Antioxidant Vegetable Nutrition - Nature’s richest source of carotenoids
• B-Complex Vitamins - Supplies Thiamin, Riboflavin and Vitamin B-12
• Iron - A daily dose provides more iron than two cups of spinach
• A complete protein - Richest source by weight in the plant and animal world
• GLA - Building block for nature’s anti-inflammatory healing, an essential fatty acid.
• Contains many other phytonutrients and food co-factors like Super Oxide Dismutase (SOD)
Hawaiian Spirulina is packed with nutrition:
300% more calcium than milk
2300% more iron than spinach
3900% more beta carotene then carrots
375% more protein than tofu
As a result, Spirulina is important for anyone needing additional nourishment including dieters, athletes, convalescents and the elderly. Just six tablets a day (3 grams) will help supply the nutrients lacking in most of our diets.
