Fresh Spirulina for Good Digestion & Stomach Health
Reduce the causes and symptoms of chronic and recurring stomach pain and improve gut health.
Build a healthy microbiome and promote microbiome diversity with daily fresh spirulina.
SPIRULINA IMPROVES GUT HEALTH
Research: Spirulina for Good Digestion & Stomach Health
In this research dried spirulina shows spectacular results in improving gut health.
Remember that fresh spirulina provides up to 20 times more of the active substances than found in the dried spirulina powder or tablets used in these research studies.

Research: Prebiotic & Probiotic Spirulina Improves Stomach Health, Boosts Protective Microbes, Protects Brain Health
A scoping review of experimental and clinical spirulina research studies found that spirulina modulates microbiome diversity towards an increased relative abundance of protective bacteria.
Spirulina was seen to maintain microbial homeostasis by reducing proteobacteria hyperproliferation, favoring short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) production and maintaining intestinal barrier integrity.
Spirulina reduces systemic inflammatory responses which can affect brain health.
The research concludes that the prebiotic and probiotic compounds in spirulina can preserve gut microbiome health and help prevent the development of brain disorders.

Research: Spirulina Maintains Microbiome Health, Prevents Viral and Microbial Infections and Diseases - 2017
Microbial-modulating activities of Spirulina help prevent dysbiosis –an “imbalance” in the gut microbial community that is associated with disease.
Changes in microbiota composition are associated with several diseases including inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and metabolic and immunological diseases.
Alterations of gut microbial composition also result in changes in the metabolites generated in the gut from microbial activity, essential for good gut health.
Spirulina helps re-establish correct microbial balance by promoting probiotic species growth.
The antibacterial activity of Spirulina also protects against viral and microbial infections.

Research: Spirulina Promotes Stomach Health – Boosts Good Microbes, Fights Pathogens - 2022
Spirulina helped maintain intestinal homeostasis, promoting the development of beneficial microbes, defending the microbiota against pathogens, and protecting gastrointestinal function and immunoregulation.
Spirulina promoted the abundance, diversity, and composition of gut microbiota, especially stimulating the growth of Bacteroides, Escherichia-Shigella, Megamonas, Megasphaera, Blautia, Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus.

Research: Spirulina Dramatically Improves Sleep, Reduces Stress, Improves Quality of Life in Ulcerative Colitis Patients
Ulcerative Colitis is a type of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) in which parts of the gut become swollen, inflamed, and ulcerated.
This can cause diarrhea, blood in stools, weight loss, tiredness, stomach pain and other symptoms.
Colitis is a lifelong condition with no cure and can be unpredictable.
Medical treatment often includes nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to relieves pain, decrease inflammation and reduce fever, antibiotics to stop the growth of or kill bacteria, anti-inflammatories to prevent or counter swelling and inflammation, immunosuppressive drugs, steroids, and analgesic drugs – all with a host of side effects.
In this randomised, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial colitis patients treated with spirulina experienced significantly reduced sleep disturbances vs the placebo group.
Furthermore, a significant reduction in stress score and increase in quality of life was observed among ulcerative colitis patients following spirulina treatment, which could be attributed to improved sleep and stress status.

Research: Scientists Explain How Spirulina Boosts Gut Health - 2021
The purpose of this study is to provide an overview of the scientific and clinical literature on the general health benefits of Spirulina, with a focus on its gut health, immunomodulatory, and antiviral effects and show how these are linked to its nutritional profile and antioxidant properties.
A healthy gastrointestinal system depends on good digestion and absorption of nutrients that results in a state of overall wellbeing.
Spirulina is composed mainly of proteins, along with all the essential amino acids, and fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. Its antioxidant properties are attributed to the presence of phenolics, tocopherols, β-carotenes, chlorophyll a, gamma linolenic acid, polysaccharides, and phycocyanin.
The phenolic compounds and extracellular metabolites released from Spirulina after digestion strengthen the epithelial lining with antibacterial effects against pathogenic bacteria, adding to its prebiotic effect on the gut microbiota.
The results demonstrate that Spirulina plant protein is comparable to other protein isolates and is a better source of free amino acids at all stages of digestion.
Spirulina contains high levels of phycocyanin, with proven health benefits due to its antioxidant properties, immune-modulating mechanisms, antigenic inhibition, and anti-fatigue effects.
