SPIRULINA: HUGE HEALTH BENEFITS
I had been told for a number of years that spirulina was THE health food, but did not believe it until something special happened to me.
I was at a kinesiology seminar. I had known at school and university that my mind needed a break after 50 minutes of study. This was backed up later in other seminars where they used super learning. If the brain is given a break every 50 minutes for 5-10 minutes, it takes up where it left off and is greatly refreshed. This enhances learning and retention. Without this break, concentration goes way down. I had told my teacher David Bridgman this, but on the seminar he was obviously ignoring my advice. After two hours straight, I was exhausted. My brain was numb. I could absorb no new information. It was an informal and fun class. There were about twenty of us seated in chairs in a circle facing the whiteboard. Many present, including the teacher, were my friends. So, I did just what my body was telling me to do - I lay down in the foetal position on the carpet in front of my chair and closed my eyes.
I could hear David laughingly tell me to get up, to manifest energy. I ignored him. Then I heard him tell someone to stick some spirulina in my mouth. Two spirulina tablets were stuck in my mouth by someone. The weird thing was, even though I was determined to stay there until David gave us a break, some how the spirulina made my body feel so good that within a minute I was back sitting in my chair!
David explained then that mental exercise exhausts RNA from the brain, and spirulina is an excellent source for RNA. There is an Applied Kinesiology test which uses muscle testing to test for RNA deficiency. The testor touches the bridge of the nose with one hand, and then muscle tests (with their other arm) one arm of the client. If the client's arm tests weak (when previously it was strong), there is an RNA deficiency. If the person tested then takes some spirulina, the weak test can usually turn into a strong test. (Other points on the body that show different areas for testing for deficiency and excess of different vitamins, minerals etc. are shown in Dr Sheldon Deal's Basic Applied Kinesiology Workshop Manual).
If you are tired or mentally drained, taking spirulina can make a big difference, quickly. Unlike caffeine, it is helping your body by providing nutrients etc., not just acting like a drug to drain your adrenals.
The Key Features of Earthrise Spirulina are:
A serving size of 6 Earthrise 500 mg Tablets (3 g) contains:
But what makes Spirulina so special is SYNERGY. Synergy is where 1 + 1 = 3 or 4 or 5 or more. Here's an example of synergy: If you mix tin, which is a soft metal, with copper, which is a soft metal, you should get a soft metal. But you don't, you get super strong bronze.
There are two problems that I see it with taking spirulina. One is that it doesn't always taste so good. Some brands make some people feel nauseous. This may be because of toxins from contaminant algae.
Secondly, most health food stores don't seem to realise this is a FOOD rather than a supplement. Their prices are way too exorbitant, especially if you want to take it in quantity.
I have solved the taste problem by finally finding the best tasting spirulina I have ever found - Earthrise. Earthrise is the leader in algae safety research. It has developed a new method for detecting toxins from contaminant algae. To me, the tablets are so good, you can eat them rather than just swallowing them. This is good because it is always a good idea to let your stomach know what is on the way, so that it can prepare for it. To people not used to spirulina it may not taste 'good' like as in 'chocolate-good' - but your body will go YUM. The taste is very fresh, without that 'fishy' taste some have. And if you have problem swallowing them, there is a new "Tiny Tabs" brand which has much smaller tablets.
It is suggested that as well as taking Spirulina as part of your regular diet, that you have tablets on hand at all times. If you get tired, can't think clearly or have sugar cravings, take six to see what happens. To really save money, buy a four pound bag of powder, and take it in a smoothie drink, sprinkle it on salads and in curries, meals etc. (remembering that it's best to have it uncooked) or make your own capsules.
