Hawaiian Pacifica SPIRULINA
What is it
Spirulina is a microscopic spiral shaped, blue-green vegetable algae. It has been used as a significant food source for centuries. Spirulina is highly digestible and the most nutritious, concentrated whole- food known to humankind. It is nature's richest whole-food source of complete protein. Rich in GLA, it also contains important B complexes including bio-available B12 and other essential organic, whole-food minerals and trace elements.

Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina is also a rich source of enzymes, RNA, DNA, sulfolipids, glycogen and other potentially important nutrients.
What are its health benefits
Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina contains around sixty percent complete, highly digestible protein and contains every essential amino acid. It also contains more beta-carotene than any other whole food. It is the best whole food source of gamma linolenic acid (GLA). It is rich in B vitamins, minerals, trace elements, chlorophyll, and enzymes.
Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina supplies nutrients that are lacking in most of our diets with:
- 300% more calcium than whole milk
- 2300% more iron than spinach
- 3900% more beta carotene than carrots
- 375% more protein than tofu
Spirulina is nature's richest whole-food source of naturally occurring organic iron. It's 58 times richer in iron than raw spinach and 28 times richer than raw beef liver. Spirulina is nature's richest source of beta-carotene (pro-vitamin A), it's 25 times higher than raw carrots!
You’ve heard the recommendation that we should eat five servings of fresh fruit and vegetables a day. This can be hard to achieve in real life. That’s where powerful supplements come in and help us maintain optimal health and wellbeing.
How does it work
Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica™ is the only spirulina in the world that uses deep seawater containing many trace minerals during the growing process. Trace minerals are widely recognised for their nutritional benefits. The deep seawater comes from a pipeline that goes down 600 metres (2000 feet) below sea level. This exceptionally pure resource has been untouched by human activity. Scientists estimate that this water has not been in contact with surface waters for over 2000 years!
WHAT IS SPIRULINA?
Spirulina is a microscopic spiral shaped, blue-green vegetable algae that's been used as a significant food source for centuries. Spirulina is highly digestible and the most nutritious, concentrated whole- food known to humankind.
It is nature's richest whole-food source of complete protein. Rich in GLA, it also contains important B complexes including bio-available B12 and other essential organic, whole-food minerals and trace elements.
Spirulina is a rich whole-food source of chlorophyll - equal to that of alfalfa or wheat-grass. It contains a rich spectrum of available proteins and is the richest source of beta-carotene and mixed carotenoids in the world.
Spirulina is nature's richest whole-food source of naturally occurring organic iron. It's 58 times richer in iron than raw spinach and 28 times richer than raw beef liver.
Spirulina is natures richest whole-food source of the entire anti-oxidant spectrum including: beta-carotene, selenium, super oxide dismutase (SOD), methionine, glutathionine, copper, manganese, zinc, B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, and B-6. It is the only source of phycocyanin (the 'blue pigment' phytonutrient) which is a powerful immune stimulant.
Beta-carotene in Spirulina is completely non-toxic, even in mega doses.
Spirulina is nature's richest source of gamma linolenic acid (GLA). It's 3 times richer than evening primrose! The polyunsaturated oils in spirulina contain 21% GLA (GLA is the active ingredient in evening primrose oil - evening primrose oil contains up to 10% GLA.)
Hawaiian Spirulina is a select strain of arthrospira platensis developed over many years of continuous cultivation in Hawaii.
The Hawaiian Spirulina strain development and perfection started in 1984. The cultures grown by Cyanotech in Hawaii represent the oldest continuously cultivated and harvested spirulina in the world.
Hawaii's year-round grown conditions and integrated culture management system have made this possible. Hawaiian Spirulina has been extensively analysed by molecular biologists at the University of Hawaii who identified unique enzymes not previously found in other strains of spirulina platensis.
HOW TO TAKE SPIRULINA
Our recommendations for spirulina usage come from our 20 years of experience and the results of research. There are no hard and fast rules regarding spirulina usage, it's safe in small or large quantities, and each individual will have a different requirement and preference. Just use the information below as a guide and experiment!
Unlike synthetic vitamin supplements, spirulina is a whole food, and as such is not consumed in small one or two tablet serves.
We also recommend that if you are new to spirulina, and perhaps not used to a lot of greens in your diet, you try half serves for the first few days and perhaps have it after food rather than on an empty stomach. A good time to use spirulina is after breakfast, then again mid afternoon.
Most people report increased energy levels after their systems adjust. You may take your spirulina all at once or more than once a day. Some people like to take it an hour before eating to satisfy their appetite.
Those with difficulty sleeping may wish to take their spirulina in the morning, rather than the evening, since the high protein content tends to wake you up.
Cold-Pressed TABLETS for convenience
For convenience and a quick nutritional boost any time, our tablets can be carried in a purse, backpack or suitcase.
Keep some at home and some at work. Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina can go everywhere with you. A serve is six tablets, but you may prefer to use a bit less. Spirulina is a dry food so don't forget to drink plenty of water.
Kids and pets like to suck the tablets like lollies for the smooth buttery taste, then wash the dark green (chlorophyll) down with a big glass of water or juice.
Pure POWDER for green smoothies
Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina Powder is 100% pure and can be shaken into fruit juice in any closeable container such as a drink bottle, blended with fruit or stirred into yoghurt. It's delicious!
For a simple Spirulina super-shake, just pour some juice into a container that can be sealed – even a jam jar, then add a heaped teaspoon of Spirulina powder (keep the spoon dry!) put the lid on and shake briefly. Spirulina will not dissolve, it just goes into suspension, so if after a while the Spirulina falls to the bottom, just give it another shake.
Powder can be shaken into fruit juice, blended with fruit (try ripe papaya with a dash of lime) or stirred into yoghurt, taken like this it tastes great!
Natural vs Synthetic
Health supplements can be divided into two categories Natural or Synthetic.
Synthetic supplements make up over 90% of all supplements and are made in the laboratory, these include antioxidants, vitamins and amino acids. Sometimes they are an exact match of the compounds found in nature but often they are not, and importantly they do not come with the accompanying 'synergistic' components found in nature.
We are not evolved to use synthetic nutrients, and although there are instanced where the use of synthetics are required due to individual circumstances, we are best served by Natures Foods. Some fat soluble nutrients such as vitamin A for example, are stored by the body accumulatively and can be toxic – nature provides vitamin A in the safe form of safe beta carotene which is converted by the body into vitamin A as required.
The strongest argument against taking synthetic nutrients in isolation is the absence of accompanying compounds found in foods – millions of years of evolution have given us nutrient delivery systems in the form of whole food 'packages' that have served us well and can continue to do so.
Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina contains only natural nutrients.
