Now Foods 100% Natural Spirulina Benefits
Spirulina is rich in Beta-Carotene (Vitamin A) and Vitamin B-12, and has naturally occurring protein and GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid), a popular fatty acid with numerous health benefits. In addition, Spirulina has naturally occurring minerals, trace elements, cell salts, amino acids and enzymes.
In a recent test conducted by a third-party testing company, NOW Foods Spirulina was not approved because it did not fully disintegrate in 30-60 minutes. NOW Foods’ Technical Team conducted a scientific evaluation of food digestion times, which shows that food takes 4 to 5 hours to fully digest in the stomach. Based on that review, we established a disintegration time of 45-90 minutes for Spirulina tablets. This disintegration standard is met for all our Spirulina tablets. NOW Foods has published information on its disintegration standard, as well as other testing standards, on its website to allow our customers to understand the scientific basis of our standards. Please see: Heavy Metal & Disintegration Specifications
Additionally, our Spirulina is a very high quality, naturally and organically grown, physically and nutrient dense food. We deliberately formulated these tablets to be free of excipients and tableting aids in order to provide pure Spirulina in tablet form. Adding excipients & tableting aids would have accelerated disintegration times to meet a 30-60 minute arbitrary disintegration time, but we specifically chose to provide our customers with a pure food product in tablet form instead.
