Spirulina Powder Certified Organic – 1kg
Spirulina is a blue/green algae and is a deceptively simple food containing complex and powerful live enzymes as well as a wide spectrum of other nutrients. By assisting multiple metabolic functions, it helps maintain a brilliant natural bloom. It is well documented to be a potent antihistamine. Spirulina has the same ability as antihistamine drugs in treatment of allergic skin and inflammatory reactions. Spirulina is also scientifically known as having a profound beneficial effect on the immune system. Spirulina has been proven in clinical trials to assist with the following ailments:
Body weight measurements revealed that all animals with diagnosed metabolic syndrome were obese and their body condition score (BCS) was rated 8–9 indicating extreme fat accumulation (Table 5). Three months of Spirulina supplementation resulted in significant weight loos. The mean body weight of EMS-horses fed with Spirulina dropped from 726.8 kg to 669.7 kg (p < 0.01). The reduction of BCS was also evident—from the average of 8.3 to 7.5 (p < 0.05). Another parameter related to obesity and taken into account when diagnosing EMS is cresty neck score (CNS), a system for assessing fat accumulation in the crest. The mean CNS was equal 2.0 for healthy horses involved into the experiment, and 4.0 for EMS-diagnosed horses. Spirulina supplementation resulted in reduction of this value up to 3.2 in horses with implemented dietary protocol (p < 0.001). Additionally, clinical examination revealed that Spirulina treatment resulted in reduced fasting insulin level (p < 0.05) and serum leptin concentrations, however, the difference between leptin level in serum of EMS horses before (8.6 ± 1.4 ng/mL) and after (8.3 ± 1.6 ng/mL) treatment was not statistically significant and still considerably higher than in healthy animals (2.9 ± 0.6 ng/mL). Moreover, prior to the experiment, combined glucose insulin test (CGIT) was performed for the evaluation of insulin dysregulation. All horses assigned to the healthy control group demonstrated negative CGIT results, while horses qualified for EMS-control or experimental groups positive. The test was repeated after the completion of dietary protocol. The results became negative for 5 out of 6 EMS-diagnosed horsed fed with pelleted Spirulina for three months. All together, these results clearly indicate improved insulin resistance in EMS-diagnosed horses following diet enriched with Spirulina platensis."
