PIONEER in the Philippines!

Philippines is a tropical country, meaning there is no winter. But the temperature rises up to 31°C throughout the year, and that's exactly what Spirulina needs to grow robust and abundant. In many other places, the temperature fluctuates upon the seasons, and that impacts the quality of production.

Since 2006, we grow and harvest Spirulina from our very own Spirulina Farm and not imported from Ch**a or any other country. Spirulina was not yet produced here in the country at that time. What started as a family business and personal consumption became a production of various food supplements using this Superfood.

Digestive Issues: Some people may experience gastrointestinal discomfort when taking Spirulina, especially in large amounts. It's advisable to start with a small dose and gradually increase it.

Before adding Spirulina to your diet, especially if you belong to any of these groups, it is recommended to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the appropriate dosage and ensure it is safe for your specific health conditions.

Can I take it along with my 'Maintenance' medications?

There are no reports in the scientific literature to suggest that Spirulina interacts with any conventional medications. However, it is possible that Spirulina might interfere with drugs given to suppress the immune system. People taking drugs to lower their blood sugar or cholesterol levels can also take Spirulina. Just make sure to monitor these levels to not go 'too low'.

How digestible is Spirulina?

Spirulina builds soft cell walls from a network of proteins, polysaccharides and enzymes. It just melts away inside your body. This is important for those who suffer from poor digestion, or for older people with restricted diets.

How does Spirulina help in 'Weight Loss'?

Spirulina is not a weight loss product, but it offers an excellent natural support in the struggle against putting on weight. Most weight loss products focus on eating less. But by eating less, you will also get less nutrients.

Spirulina makes sure that the body receives enough nutrients. Spirulina can help control and maintain your weight without artificial cures. You will receive natural nutrients in concentrated form without excess calories, which will keep you healthier and make you feel less hungry. Losing weight without feeling tired or restless is much easier to keep up! Spirulina half an hour before your meal, so your body will get the necessary nutrients.

Because Spirulina is easily digestible, these building materials will be quickly transported to the blood. The brain’s hunger center will then receive a message via the blood that all nutrients are present, which makes your feeling of hunger disappear.

The advantage is that Spirulina is 100% natural, without any harmful substances. Spirulina is also filled with iron, which is lacking in many low-calorie diets. Finally, Spirulina contains an extraordinary low quantity of calories and kilojoules (only 7 calories or 27 kilojoules per 6 tablets).

Can Spirulina help me build Muscles?

Spirulina is a nutrient-dense superfood that offers several benefits for gym goers and those looking to build muscle. Here are some key benefits:

• Rich in Protein: Spirulina is composed of about 60-70% protein by dry weight, making it an excellent source of plant-based protein. This helps in muscle repair and growth.

• Essential Amino Acids: Spirulina contains all essential amino acids required for muscle protein synthesis, making it a complete protein source.

• Antioxidant Properties: Spirulina is rich in antioxidants, particularly phycocyanin, which can help reduce oxidative stress and muscle inflammation caused by intense workouts.

• Improved Endurance: Some studies suggest that Spirulina can enhance endurance by increasing the time it takes for muscles to become fatigued, allowing for longer and more effective workouts.

• Boosts Immune System: Spirulina's high nutrient content, including vitamins and minerals, supports the immune system, which is essential for recovery and overall health.

• Energy Boost: The vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids in Spirulina can help increase energy levels and reduce fatigue, helping gym goers stay active and perform better during workouts.

• Iron Content: Spirulina is a good source of iron, which is vital for oxygen transport in the blood, thereby improving muscle oxygenation and performance.

• Reduces Muscle Damage: The anti-inflammatory properties of Spirulina can help reduce muscle soreness and damage post-exercise, aiding in quicker recovery.

• Fat Metabolism: Spirulina may help improve fat metabolism, which can be beneficial for those looking to reduce body fat while maintaining muscle mass.

• Rich in Vitamins and Minerals: Spirulina provides a wide range of vitamins (B1, B2, B3, B6, B12, C, D, E) and minerals (calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium), which are essential for overall health, muscle function, and recovery.

Can children take Spirulina?

Spirulina is just a food and can be given to children. In fact, it’s a great benefit to children who don’t like to eat vegetables. Spirulina will provide their bodies with the right vitamins and minerals which they are lacking at that moment. Spirulina can be given from birth. The powder can be easily mixed in a milk formula, smoothie or a shake. Depending on the age of the child, the dosage should be decreased from that of an adult which is one teaspoon or six 500mg Spirulina Filipina Capsules or 12 pcs. in 250mg. tablet.

Can a Pregnant woman take Spirulina?

Yes! As Spirulina has a high nutritional value, it is nutritional for both the mother and her unborn child. In addition, it provides the mother with extra nutrients, such as iron and folic acid, without the extra fat and carbohydrates. Spirulina also contains the provitamin A Beta-carotene. Beta-carotene is transformed by the body into vitamin A, as soon as the body recognizes there is any insufficiency. If the body has sufficient vitamin A, the beta-carotene is simply excreted. This is how it is different from vitamin A, of which a surplus can be stored in the liver which can cause an overdose.

Can I give Spirulina to my Pets?

Yes, of course! Spirulina are not only for humans, our furry loved ones can take it too. These are some of the key benefits that Spirulina can do with our pets, as well as us humans:

• It can strengthen their Immune System.

• It can cleanse the body of Toxins.

• It can improve Digestion and Gastrointestinal health.

• It can improve overall Skin & Coat health.

Spirulina is also found to be a highly nutritious potential feed resource for many agriculturally important animal species.

Research findings have associated Spirulina to improvements in animal growth, fertility, aesthetic and nutritional product quality.

Spirulina intake has also been linked to an improvement in animal health and welfare. Its influence over animal development stems from its nutritive and protein-rich composition, thus leading to an increased commercial production to meet consumer demand.

Are there any 'Side Effects' when taking Spirulina?

None. Spirulina is not medication, but a nutrient. Just as you do not experience any side effects from eating fresh fruit and vegetables, you will not experience any side effects when using Spirulina.

At first, some people can experience a rash, mild nausea, stomach pains or headaches from Spirulina. This is common in people whose metabolism is not working properly and in people who are taking, or have taken, many medicines. However, these reactions are a positive sign and are linked to the powerful cleansing power of Spirulina (the soaking off of toxic and waste products in the body).

If this is the case, you can stop taking Spirulina for a few days, or temporarily lower the dose, which causes the cleansing process to progress more gradually. Afterwards, the dose can be slowly increased again. Normally, these reactions will disappear by themselves after a few days.
