Microalgae promote a healthy existence and is considered by many to be “the food of the future”, due to the wide list of nutritional and healthy benefits that they present. Microalgae have developed unique metabolic capacities to ensure their survival in diverse and hostile habitats, resulting in the biosynthesis of a huge variety of secondary metabolites with high bioactivity.
This biological activity in cosmetics, medicine and nutrition has been supported by numerous scientific research and prestigious companies, and in many cases endorsed by Health Agencies such as WHO, EFSA, FDA and many others, which confirms the immense potential of these microorganisms.
Scientifically Proven Effects of microalgae
Improved mental speed, multitasking, memory and faster learning.
They Improve symptoms related to artificial vision syndrome, such as eye fatigue, eye irritation, and blurred vision.
Optimize the health and luminosity of the skin by providing protection and support to all
Reduces oxidative stress and inflammation, improves lipid profiles and promotes
A better blood flow in the capillaries.
Supports Gastric health due to its ability to inhibit gastric inflammation, provides protection against stomach ulcers.
Supports muscular function and improves aerobic potency; It reduces the accumulation of lactic acid and decreases fatigue.
The antioxidant potential of microalgae is due to the presence of carotenoids such as B-caroten, lutein and Astaxanthin, to name a few examples.
These compounds significantly reduce free radicals and help the body maintain a healthy state, reducing the risk of premature aging and acting in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. It has Also been demonstrated its effect on the protection of human skin to UV, in the prevention of some cancers and to avoid macular degeneration.
Immune Activity and stimulating effect
Numerous studies show that the consumption of certain microalgae helps to maintain a healthy immune system (greater resistance to viral, bacterial, fungal and parasitic infections) and helps in conditions of stress in humans. This is due to the presence of Carotenes, Xanthophylls, phycobiliproteins as Phycocyanin and many other bioactives present in microalgae.
One of the many benefits of microalgae is its ability to neutralize the organism’s processes and enzymes that create inflammation. Numerous research has shown that several algae such as Spirulina, Nannochloropsis, AFA, Phycocyanin exert a wide range of anti-inflammatory effects
Vision and healthy Eyes
B-caroten (a precursor of vitamin A) and lutein promotes a healthy vision and can help prevent eye conditions and night blindness. People who consume higher amounts of carotenoids have a lesser incidence of macular degeneration and cataracts.
The content of chlorophyll and other nutrients needed for detoxification pathways such as selenium, sulphur and magnesium, present in most microalgae helps to cleanse and alkalize the body, eliminate toxins from the skin, to improve metabolism of the skin. They Also have the power to prevent excessive candida growth, thus preventing acne outbreaks.
ReVitalizes the Skin
With its high content of calcium, iron, phosphorus and vitamins A, B12 and E, microalgae work over time to combat free radicals, purifying their system and restoring the vitality of the skin.
Effective in preventing some forms of cancer
Numerous research has shown that the consumption of microalgae, such as Dunaliella, Spirulina, Chlorella is effective in the prevention of some forms of cancer.
The presence of numerous antioxidants in the microalgae help in the fight against free radicals that cause the aging of the skin and eliminate them. The presence of chlorophyll, which has cleansing properties, and also helps skin retain moisture, which is one of the main keys to maintaining the appearance of a softer, more hydrated skin.
