MorLife Certified Organic Spirulina

Certified Organic by the Australian Certified Organic - Energise your life with Morlife Spirulina. Spirulina is a plant plankton that contains beneficial nutrients such as chlorophyll, iron, & betacarotene in their natural, easily digestable form. Spirulina therefore provides an alternative to synthetically manufactured supplements and is ideal for sports people, vegetarians and those wanting to improve their energy and nutrition. It is important to maintain a varied diet.

Suggested Use

Add I teaspoon of Morlife Certified Organic Spirulina to juice, such as pineapple, guava, or orange; up to 4 times daily. Alternatively, mix with smoothie, shakes, or add to other food, like yoghurt, or sprinkle over food with salt, pepper and other herbs and spices.
Children half to 1 teaspoon daily.

MorLife Certified Organic Spirulina Ingredients

Morlife Certified Organic Spirulina contains pure spirulina powder, organically certified, grown in conducive environment, with naturally approved nutrient input to the controlled ponds, free from pesticides & herbicides, under stringent quality conditions, HACCP approved food safety management and ISO 9001 Quality Management approved.

NATURES GREEN FOOD - SPIRULINA

Spirulina is a filamentous, unicellular, blue-green alga grown in certain countries and consumed as food for humans and animals. It is also widely used to derive additives in pharmaceuticals and food supplements. This alga is a rich source of proteins, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and other nutrients, especially phytonutrients.

Morlife Certified Organic Spirulina contains all the essential amino acids, plus some non-essential ones. This is similar to animal proteins; especially Spirulina does not contain saturated fats, or residues of hormones or antibiotics that are in some meats.

Vitamins that are found in Morlife Certified Organic Spirulina include B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 and folic acid. The minerals include potassium, sodium, phosphorous, magnesium, calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, copper, chromium and selenium. Spirulina also contains important fatty acids such as gamma-linolenic acid and linoleic acid which are Omega 6 fatty acids. There is also plant pigments found in Spirulina, including phycocyanin, chlorophyll, carotenoids, xanthophylls and beta carotene. The abundance of these nutrients makes Spirulina an outstanding supplement.

Having all these beneficial nutrients, Morlife Certified Organic Spirulina has been experimentally proven, in vivo and in vitro that it may be effective against numerous disease such as certain allergies, anemia, hepatotoxicity, viral and cardiovascular diseases, hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia, immunodeficiency inflammatory processes and so on.

The colour of Spirulina is derived from the green pigment of chlorophyll, which is found abundantly in green plants too. Numerous attention in recent years has been given to the anti-genotoxicity of chlorophyll. A study evaluated the effect of chlorophyll on mutagenesis and tumour cell growth. All the chlorophyll derivatives tested exhibit identical anti-mutagenic effects and the results indicate that food sources that yield chlorophyll derivatives may play a role in cancer prevention.

Morlife Certified Organic Spirulina contains phycobiliproteins (phycocyanin and allophycocyanin) which are groups of blue proteinaceous pigments that occur in cyanobacteria. In a study, phycocyanin from Spirulina was purified to demonstrate if it had antioxidant activity. The antioxidant activity of different fractions was studied during the phycocyanin purification process through the scavenger activity of the hydroxyl radical. It is observed that an increase in phycocyanin content was related to an increase in the antioxidant activity in different fractions. Therefore phycobiliprotein phycocyanin is the component mainly responsible for the antioxidant activity.

Phycocyanin also exerts anti-inflammatory effects in some animal models of inflammation. The effects of phycocyanin on prostaglandin E2 concentrations and phospholipase A2 activity were determined in arachidonic acid and TPA-induced mouse ear oedema respectively. Phycocyanin inhibited prostaglandin E2 levels in mouse ear treated with arachidonic acid and moderately reduced phospholipase A2 activity in TPA-induced mouse ear inflammation test. These results provide the evidence that phycocyanin may have anti-inflammatory effects.

The anti-inflammatory effect of Morlife Organic Spirulina was also studied in zymosan-induced arthritis in mice. Spirulina was administered for eight days after the mice were injected with zymosan, which can cause an increase in Beta-glucuronidase level. Beta-glucuronidase level was measured in the synovial fluid and the level was found to be reduced significantly by Spirulina administration. The anti-arthritic effect exerted by Spirulina may be partly due to the constituent of phycocyanin.

The effect of Spirulina on allergic reactions has been investigated by Korean researchers. Systemic allergic reactions of rats were induced by the compound 48/80, a histamine-releaser, and local allergic reactions were activated by anti-dinitrophenyl IgE. Morlife Certified Organic Spirulina dose-dependently inhibited histamine release from rat peritoneal mast cells. The results indicate that Spirulina inhibits mast cell-mediated immediate-type allergic reactions in vivo & in vitro.

The effect of Spirulina on iron status during pregnancy and lactation was assessed based on haemoglobin, packed cell volume, serum iron, total iron binding capacity and ferritin levels of rats. Diets containing Spirulina resulted in significantly higher iron storage and haemoglobin content during the first half of pregnancy and lactation. Spirulina appears to be effective in improving the iron status of rats during pregnancy and lactation. This alga has a potential use for those with anaemia.

There are clinical and experimental studies of Spirulina efficacy in chronic diffuse liver diseases. In a trial, sixty patients with chronic diffuse liver disorders and seventy experimental animals with toxic affection of the liver were examined while being administered Spirulina. The hepatoprotective properties of Spirulina are referable to its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, membrane-stabilising, and immuno-correcting actions. Therefore, the supplementation of Spirulina is believed to be pathogenetically validated in chronic diffuse liver conditions, permitting stabilizing the process and preventing the transformation of chronic hepatitis into hepatocirrhosis.

Spirulina increased the level of the white cells in blood and nucleated cells and DNA in bone marrow in mice, but has no effects on red cells and haemoglobins. Spirulina increased the level of red cells, white cells and haemoglobins in blood and nucleated cells in bone marrow in dogs. It is concluded that Spirulina has chemo- and radio-protective capability, and may be a potential adjunct to cancer therapy.

In summary, Morlife Certified Organic Spirulina has numerous benefits including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, anti-allergic and antiviral properties. Spirulina also helps to stimulate the immune system by enhancing the antibody production, improve iron status, stimulate blood cell formation, improve liver function and maintain healthy blood sugar and lipid levels. It also has chemo- and radio-protective actions, as well as cancer-preventing effects. More benefits of Spirulina are still being discovered and studied. Spirulina is truly a comprehensive food supplement for improving health and optimising body functions, especially with its high content of proteins, vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and other nutrients.
