“Overall a good balanced diet is the key to health, and in the end health is wealth,” says Luke. “Spirulina is a food that can dramatically help people get the right nutrients in an age where we are cash rich but time poor, surrounded by pollutants and processed foods.”
'Phenylalanine and Tyrosine, which are present in spirulina in large quantities are used by the brain to construct the neurotransmitter Norepinephrine. Norepinephrine is involved in the control of food intake. Research conducted by scientist James G. Gibbs reveals that food intake can be controlled in Rhesus monkeys with these precursor elements. Phenylalanine has also been found to be 89-100% effective in the treatment of depression.'
'Dopamine is synthesised from Tyrosine. Dopamine is the brain’s feel good chemical, sending feelings of well-being and pleasure into your body. In addition to simply making you feel good, dopamine helps control weight, energy levels, and supports brain and heart health. Without it, we would be more fat, unhappy, and tired. But if you know how to increase dopamine levels, you can take advantage of this feel good chemical on command.'
''Here are some quick-fire facts you need to know. Spirulina has:
- 6 times more protein than eggs.
- 50 times more iron than spinach.
- 7 times more calcium than milk.
- 10 times more potassium than most fruit and vegetables (Including bananas).
- 4-6 times richer in iron than raw beef liver.
- A-Z antioxidants to fight free radicals.''
''Many people report that eating spirulina regularly helps them feel more balanced and grounded, and feel that their mental focus and clarity is better. Many also share that spirulina consumption reduces their sugar and junk food cravings. Spirulinas densely packed protein and nutrition makes it a food that will satisfy your hunger for longer periods of time - and that’s great for weight loss and maintenance.''
