Why Choose Onnit Spirulina & Chlorella Capsules?
Greens can’t be emphasized enough in terms of their overall importance to your diet. More often than not, most people don’t get enough greens in their diet. If you think you’re skirting the issue by eating salads, think again. Many salads contain lettuce materials that are nothing more than cellulose (fiber) and water. Vegetables you eat are genetically engineered, canned, frozen, or cooked and have lost most of their nutritional value.
That’s where spirulina and chlorella can fill in the gaps. These are highly nutritious algae that provide vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, amino acids, protein, and nucleotides. These algae contain approximately 55 percent protein including all the essential amino acids. These algae are referred to as a “superfood” since they contain just about everything your body needs. Onnit has manufactured this superfood into vegetable capsule form that can be easily absorbed. You may be familiar with other green foods in liquid form, however you might not enjoy the strong green taste that comes with drinking green foods so capsules are a great alternative.
When it comes to superfoods, you’ll struggle to find a single source of sustenance as rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins as Spirulina and Chlorella. When taken together in Onnit’s uniquely balanced formula, they provide an array of superb health benefits for your body and mind.
Both Spirulina and Chlorella are rich in antioxidants allowing them to fortify your immune system and fight off potential illnesses. Similarly, Chlorella is a great source of chlorophyll which acts in a similar way to hemoglobin in increasing the body’s red blood cell count as well as aiding detoxification.
Spirulina is a superior source of protein as it contains approximately 70 percent protein by weight making it a complete protein source. Spirulina has also been shown to boost brain function due to the presence of amino acids. Many neurotransmitters are amino acids or derived from amino acids so Spirulina supplements them perfectly. Another component of Spirulina is Tryptophan, an essential amino acid, is the precursor of the neurotransmitter serotonin or what is often referred to as the “feel good transmitter”. Tryptophan is also the precursor for the hormone melatonin which is important for regulating sleep cycles.
