DXN Spirulina for your Family

DXN Spirulina for your Family:
1. Gives you more energy
2. Boosts your resistance
3. Revitalizes during fatigue
4. Speeds up recovery after illness
For small children, one tablet two to three times a day is a good average. For babies, add half a capsule (or half a crushed tablet or half a teaspoon of powder) to a
small glass of apple juice.
Boost immunity with DXN Spirulina
Why do some people seldom catch a cold or have the flu while others go from one cold to another, battling to fight off infection? The difference lies in the immune
system and levels of resistance. A strong immune system will help you fight off all manner of diseases as well as colds and flu.
Here’s how to dramatically boost your immunity:
It is absolutely vital that you have a good strong immune system. By having this, your body can fight off diseases, infections and all manner of illness. It is possible to
boost your immune system and build it up into your best defence mechanism. This is why we strongly recommend our Immune Strengthening & Boosting guidelines.
Boosting the immune system
The Immune System is the body’s defence mechanism for handling invaders. It is an amazing work of nature. It does a very good job of fighting off illnesses and
infections when it is in good condition. The way it works is beyond the scope of this information leaflet as it is highly complex and finely tuned. Unfortunately, when
it is not in peak condition, your immune system can fail to operate as well as it should.
Spirulina such as that found in DXN Spirulina, sourced from ecologically friendly, pollution free environments, is classified as a superior, all natural, green super food
tonic for our immune system.
Medical scientists found that Spirulina not only stimulates the immune system, it actually enhances the body’s ability to generate new blood cells.
DXN Spirulina‘s superior quality rating makes it the perfect supplement to help support the immune system.
Why Spirulina is ideal for boosting the immune system
Spirulina is able to stimulate the innate immune system by increasing the phagocytic action of the macrophages that engulf and kill pathogenic organisms1. In
addition, Spirulina increases the secretion of the so-called “cytokines” like interleukin-1b, tumor necrosis factor alpha and interferon2, that promote resistance on
other levels. This was especially demonstrated for a specific polysaccharide in Spirulina, called “immulina”3.
Spirulina has also been shown to stimulate the adaptive immune system with a specific response to pathogens like candida4. It can increase the production of specific
antibodies5 against pathogens and promotes the production of a class of antibodies, called “immunoglobulin A”, that specifically protect the mucosal surfaces and
help prevent the penetration of microorganisms6.
Spirulina has proven antiviral components. It is known that viruses can cause infections by attaching themselves to body cells and penetrating through their cell wall.
Researchers demonstrated that a special polysaccharide in Spirulina, “Calcium Spirulan”, selectively inhibited the penetration of viruses like herpes simplex 1,
influenza, cytomegalovirus and measles, into host cells7, 8.
Spirulina contains several components that exert antibacterial activity9. The phytonutrient and blue pigment Phycocyanin, also contributes to the immune boosting
properties of Spirulina. A human clinical study showed that an extract of Spirulina, rich in phycocyanin, increased the interferon production and the cytotoxicity of
natural killer cells when taken orally.
Spirulina is loaded with vitamin A in the form of beta carotene and is also a good source of bioavalaible iron and bio-active vitamin B12. Since a cause and effect
relationship has been established (by the European Food Safety Authority) between the dietary intake of Vitamin A, iron and vitamin B12, and a normal function of
the immune system, we may claim that Spirulina can contribute to our body’s resistance.
Work & Study
Improves your performance
Enhances concentration
Keeps you fit and alert
Helps you cope with stressful situations
Partying through the night...Quick recovery is not only important for athletes. You can benefit
from the same advantages after a night on the town. Spirulina keeps you fit without resorting to
chemical party drugs. You will realize that you can dance far longer and that after a long, heavy
night you recover much more quickly, because the waste products are removed from your body
much faster. Incidentally, many professional dancers are faithful Spirulina users.
Had a little too much to drink? If you do not want to wake up with a huge hangover, take a few
tablets before you go to bed together with one or two big glasses of water. Do the same when
you wake up and the hangover will not be as bad and you will feel fit and alert much more
quickly! Spirulina supplements the nutrients which were broken down and supports the liver’s
cleaning action. The glasses of water are necessary to re-hydrate. Because alcohol makes the
body (and brain) dehydrate which explains your thirst the day after. Incidentally Spirulina has
been a secret miracle cure for carnival revellers for years.
For a healthy skin
To make face masks
Full and shiny hair
Strong and flexible nails
As a support while slimming
Taking Spirulina on a regular basis is a natural and non-invasive way to keep your skin young and elastic. Spirulina is loaded with vitamin A (in the
form of beta carotene), the antioxidant widely recognised to maintain healthy skin. Beta carotene helps slow the aging of the skin which is
caused by UV-radiation1. It also helps protect the skin from sunburn2. The European Food Safety Authority states that a cause and effect
relationship has been established between the dietary intake of vitamin A and a normal skin 3.
Spirulina is also a powerful source of the antioxidant, super oxide dismutase (SOD), that helps oxygenate the skin 4 and helps protect the skin
from UV-induced damage5. Furthermore, Spirulina contains unusually high levels of the polyunsaturated fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA)
that contributes to optimal skin
elasticity6, 7.
Spirulina is a natural way to keep your hair strong and glossy. Not only is it a source of complete protein containing all the essential amino acids,
it is also a good source of bio available iron8, that can help prevent hair loss due to iron deficiency. As an excellent source of the essential fatty
acid GLA, Spirulina improves the hair texture and helps prevent dry, brittle hair. Finally, the presence of vitamin B-complex, vitamin E and zinc,
also boosts healthy hair. In the same way, Spirulina promotes strong nails. Especially through its high content of carotenoids, iron, essential
amino acids, GLA and B-complex vitamins.
Spirulina is an extraordinary source of antioxidants or “free radical scavengers” that keep you looking young and fresh, help ward off premature
ageing and protect the structure of skin, hair and nails. In numerous scientific studies, Spirulina has proven its antioxidant properties. One of the
key ingredients of Spirulina, the blue pigment phyocyanin, is a potent free radical scavenger that inhibits peroxidation of lipids9. Spirulina is also
rich in the antioxidant enzyme SOD (Super Oxide Dismutase), a substance that is considered one of the most important antioxidant enzymes10.
Finally, Spirulina is nature’s richest source of vitamin A in the form of beta carotene and zeaxanthin. Vitamin A is an important antioxidant that is
considered to be one of the main antioxidants in our body that fights tissue damage by free radicals11.
Spirulina owes its proven anti-aging properties to the fact that it cleanses and detoxifies the body and protects body cells against environmental
and other toxins. In several animal studies, it is shown that Spirulina helps protect against the harmful effects of toxins at the level of the liver12,
the heart13, the kidneys14 and the genes15. Substances in spirulina that help detoxify the body are chlorophyll, the antioxidant phycocyanin and Nacetylcysteine, a precursor of the strong detoxifier, glutathione.
Spirulina is helpful in boosting natural weight loss. Due to its high levels of nutrients, (with low calorie content), when taken before meals, it
helps satisfy appetite, thereby reducing how much one eats and decreasing the urge to snack between meals. It also keeps hunger pangs at bay
since it contains complete protein with all the essential amino acids and polysaccharides that moderately raise the blood glucose levels. Finally, it
stimulates the metabolism, thereby aiding in burning fat. A study showed that as well as lowering cholesterol, Spirulina promoted weight loss
and decreased triglycerides (fats) in the blood16.
A balanced sugar level also contributes to normal weight and vice versa. Furthermore, keeping the blood glucose level under control helps
prevent premature ageing and age-related degeneration. The regular intake of Spirulina has also proven to lower blood glucose levels17, 18.
How to make a Spirulina face pack
Crush two Spirulina tablets and mix them with cream cheese or yoghurt, or your favourite mask. Apply the mixture to thoroughly-cleansed skin
and let it soak in for 15 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water. The Spirulina face pack has a triple action: cleansing, relaxing and
nourishing the skin. A Spirulina face mask can be used for all skin types, but it is especially beneficial for oily or problem skin.
Spirulina is ideal as a cleansing cure both in the spring and the autumn. By drinking as much water as possible (or herb tea or juices), waste
products will be removed even more rapidly from your body. You can combine Spirulina with a juice diet for example. To keep your weight at the
right level, it is a good idea to have a ‘juice day’ every now and then. Simply add a spoonful of Spirulina powder or a few tablets to a glass of
freshly squeezed organic fruit or vegetable juice.
Menstruation is more than only a part of the reproduction function. During the bleeding, the body rids itself of pollutants (in a similar way to
skin with spots and strong smelling transpiration). A difficult menstruation may be a consequence of this inner cleansing. Spirulina ensures that
the body gradually rids itself of the pollutants and gives new energy. Thanks to Spirulina, many women have shorter and easier menstruation and
feel more comfortable in the period preceding menstruation.
Many women in the menopause have less trouble from menopausal symptoms if they take Spirulina. They feel calmer, more energetic and in
balance and have less bother from hot flushes. Spirulina can also have a positive effect during menstruation. Spirulina contains gamma-linolenic
acid that is changed into prostaglandin in the body and therefore has a positive effect on the menstruation cycle.
Better performance
More staying power
Increased stamina
Quicker recovery
Exercising or playing sport regularly improves both mental and physical health. Exercise also aids digestion, lowers stress levels and alleviates anxiety and
depression, all the while promoting a leaner body and burning fat. As a result, exercise wards off degenerative diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular
diseases and dementia.
But, endurance and competitive sports and intensive power training requires optimal, balanced nutrition as they place heavy demands on the body. Increased
turnover of red blood cells (required to transport oxygen) can lead to iron deficiencies, as well as lower levels of vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid, with anaemia
a potential long term result. The increased generation of free radicals increases the need for antioxidants such as Vitamin E, Vitamin A (carotenoids) and
selenium. Antioxidants limit cell damage, prevent inflammation and injuries, and have been shown to reduce recovery time. Increased perspiration can lead to
the rapid loss of minerals such as magnesium, sodium, potassium, iron and zinc. Optimal muscle function increases the need for quality protein replenishment,
with all the essential amino acids, particularly branched chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine.
Intensive energy production requires increased vitamin input, particularly Vitamins B1 and B2, magnesium and co-enzyme Q10. Exercise also enhances the
body’s metabolism, which may lead to an accumulation of waste products and increased body acidity through the accumulation of lactic acid and carbon
Spirulina contains optimal levels of bioavailable iron, which has been shown to be easily absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract.1
It has been proven that Spirulina can successfully combat iron-deficiency anemia and increases haemoglobin levels.2,3 Spirulina promotes red blood cell
formation due to its high levels of bio-active vitamin B124 and the presence of the phytochemical, phycoyanin5
Spirulina is extremely rich in antioxidants of the carotenoid family and contains potent antioxidants like superoxide dismutase (SOD) and phycocyanin.
Together, these antioxidants have proven to prevent skeletal muscle damage caused by exercise-induced oxidative stress, simultaneously delaying
Spirulina is a great source of protein, and contains considerable amounts of the branched chain amino acids (BCAA), also known as the building blocks of
muscle protein, helpful in muscle protein synthesis7.
Excessive physical output, such as increased training at a competitive level, frequently lowers the body’s resistance. Spirulina has been proven to strengthen
immunity in numerous ways8, 9, 10, 11.
With its alkaline composition, Spirulina de-acidifies the body after strenuous exercise. It helps eliminate waste products, thereby encouraging rapid recovery
and more efficient training. Spirulina replenishes lost minerals due to increased perspiration. So, it is the ideal ingredient for power and recovery drinks.
Nutrition and pregnancy
Pregnancy is a wonderful period in a woman’s life as she counts down to the moment of the birth of a miracle. Maintaining health throughout
pregnancy is vital for both mother and foetus. So, a balanced, nutritious diet is imperative during pregnancy.
Particularly important is increased iron which is required for good blood cell formation (to supply nutrition to the foetus), for optimal oxygenation of
the foetus and to promote its neurological and physical development. It is estimated that 35% of pregnant women are iron deficient in their first
trimester and 85% have become iron deficient by their third trimester.
Sufficient protein is imperative for foetal development, the growth of the uterus, and the growth of the placenta. During pregnancy, a woman’s need
for protein increases by 25%. The protein supply should contain all essential amino acids. A balance between animal and vegetable protein sources
must also be considered.
Due to intensive cell divisions, the B-vitamins, folic acid and vitamin B12 are important in preventing birth defects (particularly within the first 6 weeks)
and for improved blood cell formation. Calcium, magnesium, vitamin K2 and vitamin D are required for healthy bone formation, and to prevent
hypertension during pregnancy. Antioxidants such as vitamin C, Carotenoids and vitamin E are indispensable in preventing low birth weight, premature
birth and in reducing labour pains. But vitamin A should be substituted with beta carotene, because excessive intake of vitamin A has been linked to
birth defects. Vitamin K1 is needed to aid normal blood clotting, and to prevent excessive bleeding at birth.
Essential fatty acids are important for the development of the baby’s brain, as well as the well-being of the mother. Omega-3 can be sourced from
linseed oil, green vegetables and nuts (ALA) and in higher concentration in seafood (EPA, DHA). While western communities seldom lack Omega-6 or
gamma linolenic acid (GLA), many mothers lack Omega-3.
Fibre intake should be increased in pregnancy because constipation is a frequent occurrence. Optimal intestinal flora is important in ensuring the
proper assimilation of nutrients and to ward off candida (yeast infection), another common side effect of pregnancy.
Alcohol, cigarettes or narcotics should not be used in pregnancy, and all medication should be prescribed or approved by a health care practitioner.
Why Spirulina is ideal before, during and after pregnancy
Spirulina is considered a safe source of nutrients: it can be consumed at doses of 3 to 20 tablets per day without any adverse effects1. Studies on the
acute, subchronic and chronic toxicity and mutagenicity of Spirulina have revealed no specific body or organ toxicity or genotoxicity2, 3. Dietary ingestion
of very high levels of Spirulina during pregnancy has not caused foetal abnormalities or birth defects4.
Spirulina serves as a suitable iron source during pregnancy. It contains high levels of bioavailable iron which has been shown to be easily absorbed in
the gastrointestinal tract5. It has been proven that Spirulina can be used to combat iron-deficiency anemia in anemic adolescent girls6 and women7, by
improving hemoglobin levels.
Spirulina is an ideal vegetable source of bio-active vitamin B12, a vitamin that, next to iron, is also important for blood cell formation8 and for
neurological development. Spirulina is an extremely rich source of carotenoid antioxidants such as beta carotene (provitamin A) and zeaxanthin.
Zeaxanthin has been proven to support both eye health9 and brain health. Spirulina does not contain vitamin A, the potentially detrimental vitamin
when consumed in high doses in pregnancy.
Spirulina is effective in maintaining optimal intestinal flora and in decreasing Candida albicans (yeast)10infection. It contains vitamin K1 and vitamin K2
in considerable amounts and in this way contributes to normal blood clotting11 and good bone formation12. Spirulina is nature’s richest whole food
source of the important omega-6- fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid that contributes to women’s health.
Because of the high protein level, Spirulina is a good substitue for eating meat. The protein level in Spirulina is even 60% higher than the protein level in soybeans.
While travelling
Keeps you alert longer behind the wheel
Enhances concentration
Better recovery following a long journey or flight (jetlag)
500 years ago the Aztecs used Spirulina on their long treks through the mountains. Nowadays Spirulina is ideal when you are driving in heavy traffic. The algae keep you
fresh and alert behind the wheel and increase your powers of concentration. Beta-carotene (an important constituent of Spirulina) is required to enable you to see well in
the dark; that helps you if you have to drive at night. And are you dreading that long flight to your holiday destination? Use Spirulina and you feel fitter and you have fewer
problems with jetlag.
Rapid childhood growth results in increased protein requirements. Spirulina is a powerful vegetable protein source that contains all the essential amino acids in a balanced
combination. Children are often fussy about eating fresh fruit and vegetables, resulting in unhealthily low levels of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Spirulina provides
a good source of antioxidants (carotenoids, vitamin E, phycocyanin, and super oxide dismutase), vitamins (provitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamin K) and several minerals.
In a crèche or classroom environment, young children often spread colds and flu. Spirulina has shown to strengthen the immune system1,2,3,4, improve resistance and
reduce the occurrence of lingering respiratory infections. Spirulina is a proven, safe5, nature-based food supplement that is ideal for children.
Teenagers are notoriously bad eaters, prone to junk food binges and excessive carbohydrate intake. Their food habits seldom meet the physical requirements of a
teenage lifestyle, particularly for teenagers who play a lot of sport. Menstruating girls often suffer from iron deficiencies. Spirulina contains high amounts of bioavailable
iron, shown to be easily absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract6. It has also been proven that Spirulina may combat iron-deficiency anemia in anemic adolescent girls7 by
improving hemoglobin levels.
Spirulina is a known source of B-complex vitamins, and as such assists in reducing stress levels or anxiety. Spirulina is especially rich in bio-active vitamin B12, a vitamin that
promotes brain health13 and helps ward off feelings of depression14.
Since Spirulina helps control cholesterol levels15,16 and is high in vasoprotective antioxidants like carotenoids and vitamin E , it is effective in promoting healthy circulation.
Seniors often have a weaker digestive system with a diminished absorption function. Spirulina has a soft cell wall and is easily digested for optimal nutrient absorption.
Spirulina helps prevent an age-related decrease in immunity and red blood cell count17.
It is abundant in antioxidants like carotenoids, super oxide dismutase (SOD) and phycocyanin which may assist in warding off premature aging. In particular, SOD protects
cells from toxic, reactive oxygen species and may be credited in slowing down age-related degeneration18.
Energy dip?
Do you have a problem with an energy dip halfway through the afternoon? Well – instead of eating chocolate – try taking a few Spirulina tablets. Your energy level will
soon return to normal and you will quickly be back in form!
Natural slimming aid
A few kilos overweight? Spirulina can help you gain and keep control of your weight and you will not have to resort to artificial remedies. You get natural nutrients in a
concentrated form without any excess calories, which means you will be healthy and less likely to suffer from pangs of hunger. Furthermore, you will be much more likely
to stick to a diet, if you do not feel tired or listless!
Strengthens the immune system
Increases stamina and condition
Gives a shiny coat
Pets can also benefit a great deal from Spirulina. Cat and dog fur gets a healthy sheen, their physical condition improves and so does their breath.
Puppies grow better, are healthier and have an improved immune system. Most animals love the tablets so do not leave the bottle around open as they will probably
eat the lot! Pet birds such as canaries breed better and look healthier. Plumage quality improves and the carotenes in Spirulina ensure that the colors are beautifully
bright. Japanese Koi carp also gain improved colour from Spirulina which makes them more valuable. Spirulina is also used by fish breeders to keep fish healthy.
Spirulina gives horses a nice, shiny coat and a stable immune system. Racehorse owners report improved performance and more rapid recovery, the same results
human athletes report. The regular use of Spirulina also has a positive effect on animal fertility. See the instructions for use for dosages.
Why Spirulina boosts your energy level
As an easily digested and absorbed complete and balanced nutrient source, Spirulina offers effective compensation for dietary deficiencies. Thanks to an abundance of
bioavailable iron, Spirulina helps combat iron-deficiency anemia in anemic adolescent girls1 and women2, by improving hemoglobin levels in the red blood cells that
transport oxygen. Iron is also necessary for energy yielding metabolism3. Spirulina also offers an effective source of bio-active vitamin B12 and manganese, two
nutrients that contribute to a normal energy yielding metabolism4, 5.
Spirulina also boosts energy levels through detoxifying the body and protecting against environmental and other toxins.
In several animal studies, it is shown that Spirulina helps protect against the harmful effects of toxins at the level of the liver6, the heart7, the kidneys8 and the genes9.
Substances in Spirulina that help detoxify the body are chlorophyll, the antioxidant phycocyanin and N-acetylcysteine, a precursor of the strong detoxifier glutathione.
Increased exposure to, and excessive production of free radicals can sap our energy levels because these aggressive substances constantly attack important body
components like proteins and DNA. Spirulina is an effective way to fight free radicals due to its high potency antioxidants.
Spirulina is particularly rich in carotenoids like beta carotene and zeaxanthin, in the antioxidant enzyme SOD (superoxide dismutase) and phycocyanin. In numerous
scientific studies, Spirulina has proven its antioxidant properties. One of the key ingredients of Spirulina, the blue pigment phyocyanin, is a potent free radical
scavenger, which inhibits peroxidation of lipids10. Spirulina is also rich in the antioxidant enzyme SOD, a substance that is considered to be one of the most important
antioxidant enzymes11. And last but not least: Spirulina is nature’s richest source of vitamin A in the form of beta carotene and zeaxanthin. Vitamin A is a vital
antioxidant that is considered key in fighting tissue-damage caused by free radicals12.
It is well known that regular consumption of fast food, fast-paced lifestyles, high stress levels and living in a polluted environment can lead to over-acidified body cells,
blood and tissues. One of the consequences of this acidification is energy loss and fatigue. Spirulina is grown in particularly alkaline conditions and is an alkaline
nutrient source that can help combat acidification and improve vitality.
Spirulina is an unusually rich source of various pigments. The green pigment chlorophyll, the blue pigment phycocyanin, the orange or red carotenoids and the yellow
pigment zeaxanthin all contribute to the fact that Spirulina is able to capture large quantities of sun energy. It is high in so-called “bio photons” (much more so in fact
than sun ripened fruit) and in this way increases the energy level of a consumer who uses it regularly.
