Spirulina – Biomass Of Cyanobacteria

Species – Arthrospira platensis & Arthrospira maxima

Arthrospira The dietary supplement and the food which is considered to be wholesome is the blue-green algae. This supplementary food may be of any form. This may be in tablet form which is also considered to be a supplement in aquaculture, aquarium, and poultry.

Protein: Dried spirulina 60% protein. Along with amino acids and amount of methionine, cysteine, and lysine.

Nutrients: 100-gram amount of spirulina 290 calories, Especially with B-vitamin and dietary minerals such as iron and manganese. There are several vitamins of B and E available in these algae which are easy to consume and they are preferably used to be as direct supplements that can be consumed by mixing with water.


Common name spirulina.

Benefits of Spirulina:

It is commonly known to be te food supplement. Which is rich in medical attributes is also capable of treating cancer, allergies, anemia and also used as animal feed. Used in technical applications that help biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles that allows the formation of metallic silver and makes environmental friendly. Creation of textile pays some advantages, as it is used for the production of antimicrobial textile. Paper or polymer material are an output of versatile small organism.

Cropping system:

Arthrospira platensis is based on different factors and maximum output factors of temperature, light, and photoinhibition, nutrients, finally CO2 level. The platensis are grown in freshwater, brackish water,  sea water. Other than mineral fertilizers various such as Nutrient source, especially waste effluents and the effluents of Fertilizer, starch and noodle factories. Major hurdle on large scale production seems complicated.


Managing arthrospira and marketability and feasibility:

Initially, arthrospira was given interest at Mexico, lake chad, and the African continent. Late 20th century has benefits rediscovered production has increased in large scale production of cyanobacterium which is developed first at japan in early 1960’s.Later, followed by Mexico, china, India, Thailand, Myanmar, U.S and other parts that were produced in large scale.

International marketing groups, NGO’s and institutions concentrate on malnutrition and health cons. People at local level needs to look after standards of the product mainly at Africa, where production is at low cost and heavy labor. At the same time, Africa has to increase standard while it is importing the product to countries which result in higher cost.

Effect of spirulina on health system:

Spirulina is not a herb. It has the ability to improve the human immune system. The Spirulina Health benefits also include prevention from cold, flu, regenerationist. And helps to recover faster from wounds. It pro-regeneration of damaged cell system.

Eyeballs – spirulina:

Blue-green algae are rich in vitamin A are required to needs of eyesight that would be better than carrot. The concentration of spirulina is more when compare to per gram of carrot.

Spirulina – digestive:

Healthy bacteria which is produced causes the digestive system to absorb dietary nutrient. Free passage of wastes from the digestive system and frees from constipation.

Added Benefits:

  • Bio-iron which reduces pregnancy issues and reduces constipation.
  • Rich in vitamins B and E.
  • Blueberry are antioxidants which are available specially in the algae.
  • Protein rich more than beef, fish, and soyabean.

The manifestation of spirulina:

Heavy metals free:

Researchers have proved that arsenic toxication had bad effect on people of  US, that naturally increased arsenic problem even partly at east. Bangladeshi researchers have tested that 3% nation has already been affected. The solution test proved blue-green algae + zinc had the better result when compared to placebo. Where 47% of decrease were found on disease-causing cancer cells.

Curing Throat Related Disease:

Loss of healthy microflora causes sickness and disease. Imbalance of microfloral leaky gut syndrome present cures improper digestion.

Fights cancer:

Spirulina is good in the production of antibodies and protein preventing infection and improve immunity defending chronic illnesses. Rich in tetrapyrrolic compound, bilirubin molecule, the potent antioxidant, antiproliferative agent.

Prevents occurrence of stroke:

The algae lowers the intimal aorta from 33% to 48% and prevent atherosclerosis and subsequent stroke. Regular consumption reverts the damage that is caused due to poor diet.

Sinus Issues:

Inflammation which is the cause for sinus can be cured on consumption of spirulina which reduces the nasal discharge, nasal congestion, and sneeze.
