Spirulina (dietary supplement)

Spirulina (dietary supplement)
Spirulina tablets Spirulina is a cyanobacterium that can be consumed by humans and other animals and is made primarily from two species of cyanobacteria: Arthrospira platensis and Arthrospira maxima. Arthrospira is cultivated worldwide; used as a dietary supplement as well as a whole food; and is available in tablet, flake and powder form. It is also used as a feed supplement in the aquaculture, aquarium and poultry industries.[1] Spirulina thives at a pH around 8.5 + , which will get more alkaline, and a temperature around 86 deg. F. Spirulina was a food source for the Aztecs and other Mesoamericans until the 16th century; the harvest from Lake Texcoco and subsequent sale as cakes were described by one of Cortés' soldiers.[6][7] The Aztecs called it "tecuitlatl".[3] Spirulina has also been traditionally harvested in Chad. Dried spirulina contains about 60% (51–71%) protein. The U.S. Spirulina is not considered to be a reliable source of Vitamin B12.

th TODAY with 1OO% pure Chlorella!Welcome to BioChlorella.com.... Detoxify, Rejuvenate & Boost your Heal Chlorella is a microscopic (of 2 to 10 µm diameter) single celled green micro algae that has existed on the planet for over 2.5 billion years! Having survived in exactly the same form since the pre-Cambrian period, this micro-algae owes its extraordinary survival to two highly unusual features: its unique cell wall and its astonishing capacity of reproduction. During approximately the first billion years of the earth's existence, deadly gases such as ammonia, methane and carbon dioxide made its atmosphere heavy. In the evolution of Earth, primitive green plant life such as Chlorella had the role to filter out these deadly elements, to eventually change the earth's environment to one capable of supporting flora (plants) and fauna (animals). Each Chlorella cell is complete, and Chlorella was the first cell form to contain a true nucleus within its nuclear envelope.

Laboratory-grown beef: meat without the murder, but would you eat it? Last summer you unveiled the world's first lab-grown – or "in vitro" hamburger. How did it feel when you had it fried up, and you gave it to the first person to test? What if they had spat it out and said: "Ugh, this is awful"? Well, yes. We'd selected food critics who said they wanted to taste synthetic meat at some point.

Whole Food Multivitamin +Plus Vital Minerals Nutritional Supplement If you're currently taking or considering taking a multivitamin with a recommended serving size of only one pill a day, you're pretty much wasting your time. Why? It's very doubtful that any single pill can pack enough vitamins and minerals to truly make any real difference in complementing your healthy diet. Ebola puts focus on drugs made in tobacco plants It's an eye-catching angle in the story of an experimental treatment for Ebola: The drug comes from tobacco plants that were turned into living pharmaceutical factories. Using plants this way—sometimes called "pharming"—can produce complex and valuable proteins for medicines. That approach, studied for about 20 years, hasn't caught on widely in the pharmaceutical industry. But some companies and academic labs are pursuing it to create medicines and vaccines against such targets as HIV, cancer, the deadly Marburg virus and norovirus, known for causing outbreaks of stomach bug on cruise ships, as well as Ebola.

Vegan Almond Milk Ice Cream: 3 Recipes : Bay Area Bites As far as I’m concerned, ice cream is the perfect dessert.

One of Your Keys to Outstanding Health 5/22/02 By Wes Petereson A kitchen is nothing else than a chemical laboratory producing millions of completely new chemical substances that basically never existed in the wild and if, then very occasionally by accident. Cooking will randomly produce millions of different sugar and protein combinations commonly called Maillard molecules. 10 Insane Cases of Genetic Engineering Animals You’re probably familiar with South Korea’s glow-in-the-dark cats (if not, here’s a video). They’re genetically modified cats with fluorescent pigmentation in their skin that causes them to glow red under UV light. The researchers then cloned them, successfully carrying the fluorescent gene to the next generation of kitty clones. For better or for worse, it looks like genetic engineering is here to stay, which begs the question: How will we know when we’ve gone too far?

Flavr Savr - Wikiwand Flavr Savr (also known as CGN-89564-2; pronounced "flavor saver"), a genetically modified tomato, was the first commercially grown genetically engineered food to be granted a license for human consumption. It was produced by the Californian company Calgene, and submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1992.[1] On May 18, 1994,[2] the FDA completed its evaluation of the Flavr Savr tomato and the use of APH(3')II, concluding that the tomato "is as safe as tomatoes bred by conventional means" and "that the use of aminoglycoside 3'-phosphotransferase II is safe for use as a processing aid in the development of new varieties of tomato, rapeseed oil, and cotton intended for food use." It was first sold in 1994, and was only available for a few years before production ceased in 1997.[3] Calgene made history, but mounting costs prevented the company from becoming profitable, and it was eventually acquired by Monsanto Company.
