A study published last month in the journal Progress in Cardiovascular Disease (2020) revealed that phycocyanobilin (PCB), a compound in Spirulina, can boost the body’s response to viruses✊.
The study is in fact entitled “Nutraceuticals have potential for boosting the type 1 interferon response to RNA viruses including influenza and coronavirus” and reveals incredible and very timely findings about Spirulina.
Researchers observed “profound antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects” and explained that the PCB converts in the body to a compound that has a role in the immune system and “may have potential for boosting type 1 interferon response in the context of RNA virus infection”⚡️.
Type 1 interferons are immune cells that are antimicrobial, their role is to help prevent further spread of a virus to neighbouring cells and to activate the body’s innate system of killing off infection💥. We definitely want to be boosting these!
However, not all Spirulina is created equal…
For immune system support, it’s particularly important to ensure you choose a very clean source of Spirulina like ours - which is grown in pure mineral water💧 and tested free from toxins including heavy metals, chemical fertilisers and algal toxins💯.
