MicrOrganics UK are the UK supplier of the finest quality Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina and Bio-Xanthin (Natural Astaxanthin).
Spirulina is a microscopic blue-green vegetable algae that has been used as a significant food source for centuries. It thrives in hot sunny climates and in alkaline waters around the world and produces twenty times as much protein as soybeans when grown on an equal size of land.
A nutrient-rich dietary supplement, MicrOrganics unique strain is a vegetable-based, highly absorbable source of phytonutrients, B vitamins, gamma linolenic acid (GLA), protein and essential amino acids. It also has a highly absorbable supply of Iron.
Spirulina is a naturally digestible food, which aids in mineral absorption, cholesterol reduction and protects the immune system. It is especially beneficial to people who are fasting due to its ability to help cleanse and heal while also curbing the appetite. Its high protein content makes it a very popular food product for a person with hypoglycaemia, helping to normalise blood sugar levels between meals.
Astaxanthin is a carotenoid (plant colouring), found in microalgae, yeast, salmon, trout, krill, shrimp, crayfish, crustaceans, and the feathers of some birds. Astaxanthin can be extracted from all of these sources and can also be synthesised. Synthetic Astaxanthin is used as a natural food colourant and is used for example to make farmed salmon redder in colour.
The Astaxanthin that is derived from micro algae, such as Bio-Xanthin Astaxanthin is by far the most potent.
Like many carotenoids, it is a colourful, fat/oil-soluble pigment. Astaxanthin, unlike some carotenoids, does not convert to Vitamin A (retinol) in the human body. Too much Vitamin A is toxic for a human, but Astaxanthin is not. It is a powerful anti oxidant which is 50 times more powerful than beta carotene and 500 times more powerful than vitamin E.
