Spirulina caracteristics
About 3,5 billions years ago appeared the first green algaes and, surprising thing, they always live. One among them is in the brackish and alkali lakes (PHS 9 - 11) assuring a big biologic purity of the hottest regions of the globe: the SPIRULINA.

Consumed by the Aztecs and again nowadays by the KANEMBOUS of Chad, appreciated since more of 20 years by the professionals of the dietetics for its nutritional and medicinal qualities, the spirulina of by all its properties is an excellent food complement for all, very efficient in the cases of malnutrition and anemias, thanks to its content in amino acidSilly-Carotene essentials, iron, calcium, mineral, essential fatty acids as acid gamma linoléic.

It is used besides with success by the sportsmen, the vegetarians, the aged people as well as for the women who nurse. As amplifier of the immune defenses, the regular consumption of spirulina permits a real economy on the budget "health" of the users. Otherwise, the spirulina attracts the attention of the world health scientists, more and more.

Numerous studies of laboratory and some preclinics studies indicate several therapeutic effects, that it was about reducing cholesterol, to fight the herpes, the diabetes, the tuberculosis and the malaria. Some more recent scientific studies have the tendency to show the faculty of the spirulina to inhibit the viral replication, to reinforce the immune system. One often observes the improvement of the health state in the case of cancers and carriers of the VIH virus.

POSOLOGY OF THE SPIRULINA

Infantile malnutrition, anemia: some remarkable effects are noted from doses varying according to the child's weight between 1 and 5g / day. The length of the daily cure will be the order of 4 to 6 weeks, the first results will normally appear at the end of some days.

-Apparition of the "smile-answer": in 8 to 13 days.
- Meaningful ponderal gain since the first day (out kwashiorkor) (on average 20g /day)
- Increase of the hemoglobin rate at the end of one to two weeks.
- Increase of the biologic scorers of the MPE: pre-albumin and transférine (of where good nutritional value of the spirulina).

Besides the child's health, the balance economic of the use of the spirulina for a center of nutritional rehabilitation (CREN) is especially interesting, since it permits, not only a time of recuperation of the child, faster than with merely the enriched traditional flours, but also the economy of vitamin complements and chemical origin iron.


Preventive health of the adults and sportsmen, aged people, pregnant women, women nursing: proceed by cure of 3 weeks at the rate of 5g/jour, without interruption (1 to 2 teaspoon / day to the meal).
