Mental fatigue and exhaustion is something that most of have to deal with everyday. We’ve all been there. It’s the last hour of the day and you have to dig deep to find the strength to make it to 5pm. You’ve probably tried sleeping earlier (if you’re so lucky), but those days where of 8 hour snoozes are over. What would maintain your energy levels throughout the day beyond that dose of morning cup of coffee especially during those chilly winters? Spirulina can boost energy because of its unique nutritional profile and help keep you stay rejuvenated and refuelled throughout the day.
Spirulina for Energy
There are a few ways Spirulina helps with boosting energy. As a complete protein, Spirulina contains all the essential amino acids that are required for protein assimilation in the body. How does this connect to energy? If the body is lacking in amino acids, many of the functions, like energy production, will be impeded. Much of these amino acids, such as glutamine and phenylalanine, as well as essential fat (GLA), can be found in a serving of Fresh Spirulina and are absorbed easily by human cells releasing energy in the process. Liquid Spirulina is 100% bio-available meaning your body fully absorbs the nutrients, unlike Spirulina powder, which has an absorption rate of 60-70%.
What does the science say?
A team of researchers conducted from the department of Human Nutrition at Ohio State University conduced a study on the effect of Spirulina of a Spirulina on a group of 18 men. After a week they found that Spirulina “produced a statistically significant increase from baseline”. Moreover, they found that this increase continued throughout the 8 weeks of the study in which Spirulina was used.
Another way Spirulina helps boost energy and reduces mental fatigue are through Polysaccharides. Polysaccharides are long chains of monosaccharides, the most common of which are starch and glycogen which are short-term energy stores. The polysaccharide content within Spirulina “is a main bioactive anti-fatigue material“.
It helps that Dr. Oz is a fan of Spirulina’s energy powers too.
We all know that food contains energy and what Spirulina does is to help transform into energy for your cells. It does this by by having a rich content of all the vitamins in the B Group. And the Omega-6 content in Spirulina is an essential nutrient that is is easily absorbed by the body helping release energy and improve brain function.
