Probiotics are friendly bacteria that make up the microbiome in your gut or digestive tract and are the key to good health, especially to good digestion and regularity. Bacteria, though naturally present in the body, accounts for two pounds of bio-mass in your intestines, which need a balance of beneficial bacteria to promote good health. It’s important to include a probiotic in your daily diet, as levels of these good bacteria decrease with age and are impacted by a poor diet and obesity.†
Spirulina is a type of sea green or blue-green algae that is a rich source of amino acids and minerals, used as a highly nutritious superfood for thousands of years by the Aztec and Mayan civilizations and throughout Asia and Africa. It has been shown to be protective for the liver, heart, respiratory system, bones and detoxification.†
Chlorella, like its cousin Spirulina, is a member of a group of tiny blue-green algae that are highly nutritious due to their vitamin/mineral content and biological capabilities. It has long been known that chlorella is a source of B-vitamins, minerals and detox factors, however genetic studies are showing they also contain healthy fatty acids. Fatty acids such as Omega-3 and -6 can contribute to fat regulation in the body, such as providing support for healthy cholesterol levels. Algae DHA is also associated with positive effects for brain mass, memory and learning.†
