The perfect microalgae for vegetarians and vegans
Have you reduced or completely excluded animal-based nutrition from your diet? Would you like to improve your nutrient intake to complement your regular food? Are you concerned about iron deficiency or vitamin B12 deficiency?
Optimizing your diet naturally can help to stay in great shape.
A balanced nutrition includes vitamins and minerals, as well as necessary proteins, lipids and carbohydrates adapted to our genetics. In case of a vegetarian or vegan diet, it is particularly important to ensure intake of high quality proteins, vitamin B12 and iron – which are less present, incomplete or difficult to absorb in plant based foods.
Vitamin B12 deficiency can have serious consequences for nervous and psychological disorders and may even lead to anemia.
Iron deficiency manifests itself as severe fatigue, pale skin, short of breath and hair loss.
One must also pay attention at the intake of essential amino acids. These are 8 out of the 20 amino acids, which are imperative to be consumed from food. While animal-based proteins contain all of the acids together, in case of vegetable proteins they must be consumed individually across different ingredients. This is particularly important, as the deficiency of only one of the eight essential amino acids could have the same health implications as a total protein deficiency.
Spirulina naturally enriched with iron to treat deficiency
This plant-based iron combined with spirulina provides a high absorption, at levels even higher than red meat. Being 100% natural plant-based, this iron intake has no side-effects such as nausea, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea.
Chlorella to replenish vitamin B12
Chlorella is one of the only plant-based sources of natural vitamin B12. Studies show its importance as a natural dietary supplement for vegetarians and vegans who need to replenish in vitamin B12.
Omega 3 DHA algae for a vegan DHA intake
Studies have shown that DHA helps to protect the brain and eyes. However, the most common consumption of Omega 3 today is through fatty fish liver. To offer an alternative, Omega 3 DHA contained in the Schizochitrium sp. algae, is a 100% vegan source of fatty acids at equivalent levels.
