Spirulina Pacifica, 400 TABS - Nutrex
500mg per tablet
Please note that this brand of Spirulina contains Vegetable Magnesium Stearate. Stearic acid is a waxy oil fraction that acts as a lubricant to fill capsules when a dry powdered ingredient (or ingredient mix) is uncooperative, based on issues involving density, stickiness, flowability under pressure, etc. While a vegetable source is considered better than other forms of Magnesium Stearate, it is still an additive and we wanted to make you aware of this fact prior to your purchase. Love, the Raw World Team.
Hawaiian Spirulina now has a new label and even more nutrition than ever! After extensive research and development, our scientific team was able to make the world’s best Spirulina even better by increasing the levels of key nutrients. Hawaiian Spirulina now has more than double the levels of key nutrients compared to every other brand!
All Natural Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica™ is a pure natural super greenfood, containing protein, betacarotene, and essential vitamins & minerals making it the World’s Healthiest Food!
Doctors and scientists recommend that we eat 9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. For most people, this rarely happens. That’s one reason why you should take Hawaiian Spirulina every day. Spirulina is a “Superfood.” It is the most nutritious, concentrated whole food known to humankind. One 3 gram serving of Hawaiian Spirulina provides more antioxidant activity than 5 servings of fruits and vegetables!
Look how packed Spirulina is with Nutrition:
Focus on Quality
As the growers of Hawaiian Spirulina, we focus on ways to protect the superb antioxidant quality through all phases of production. Our patented Ocean Chill drying delivers twice the antioxidant quality of other Spirulina products, but it is also extremely important that Spirulina is properly packaged. Our research shows that commonly used plastic bottle packaging was allowing oxidation to destroy precious nutrients. We launched Nutrex Hawaii eighteen years ago to ensure the consumer has access to the freshest, highest quality Spirulina on the market. We spare no expense in making sure that the Spirulina is just as fresh when the bottle is opened in your home as when it is harvested from our ponds. The Spirulina goes from the ponds to finished product in less than 30 minutes, then we use glass packaging with oxygen absorbers and sealing caps to ensure the maximum freshness and potency of nutrients.
Minerals from Deep Seawater
Only Hawaiian Spirulina draws nourishment from the world's cleanest, deepest ocean. Our facility uses ocean water drawn from a pipeline that plunges 2000 feet into the Pacific Ocean. Oceanographers tell us this water has been below the surface since Old Testament times. Our pipeline brings this ultra-pure, mineral rich water to our ponds. We supplement our Spirulina systems with this deep seawater as a source of calcium, magnesium, and all 94 trace elements. No other Spirulina is grown with such special water with its rich source of naturally occurring nutrients. In fact, every other producer of Spirulina in the world uses either river water or irrigation water, which is another reason why Hawaiian Spirulina is the purest and highest quality in the world.
Patented Ocean-Drying protects Phytonutrients and Enzymes
Spirulina provides a wide range of delicate phytonutrients with very significant health benefits. These phytonutrients include antioxidants known for giving fruits and vegetables their orange and yellow colors. Nutritionists recommend increasing our intake of phytonutrients to protect against the harmful effects of UV sunlight, pollution, and environmental stress. To reduce processing losses of these delicate compounds our scientists developed and patented the Ocean Chill Drying process. All Hawaiian Spirulina is dried with this process, giving Hawaiian Spirulina much higher levels of phytonutrients and enzymes than other brands.
Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica supports:
Tablets: Take 6 or more tablets daily. Powder: Take 1 teaspoon or more daily. Enjoy mixed in juice, fruit smoothies, sprinkled on food or in your favorite recipe. Crystal Flakes: Sprinkle on foods to enhance the nutritional profile and create a rich, full flavor.
All Spirulina products should be refrigerated after opening.
Q: We notice that you use vegetable magnesium stearate. Isn't that harmful?
A: I’ve heard that there is some controversy about vegetable magnesium stearate but so far, none of the negative claims have actually been proven yet (there is no scientific backing to it, just some claims). NOW Foods actually has a good page on the subject, this is the link. http://www.nowfoods.com/M093528.htm
In any case, the amount of vegetable magnesium stearate in the spirulina tablets is very insignificant, about 1/10th of 1%. If this was to cause any known harm or negate the benefits of spirulina, we would choose to use something else.
