Strengthen the immune system: Algae products as a food supplement
It is hard to imagine Asian cuisine without them, while in Germany they are mainly known in the context of food supplements. We are talking about algae products, which are considered a kind of miracle cure in alternative medicine and have a disease-relieving effect with the help of numerous healthy ingredients. There are around 25,000 species of algae, which are among the oldest plant species on earth and can be found in the most diverse habitats due to their high adaptability.
The composition of the diet in terms of various nutrients such as protein, minerals and carbohydrates is particularly decisive for the state of health and fitness. Especially in western countries, many people do not consume enough dietary fibre and minerals, which are particularly important for the health of the stomach and intestines. Algae products contain dietary fibres such as alginate and carrageenan, which make the heavy metals that people absorb through food harmless to the body. They have also been shown to lower cholesterol levels. Other ingredients that are partly responsible for a positive state of health and are contained in algae products are unsaturated fatty acids, primarily omega-3 fatty acids. An extremely high content of minerals also makes algae significant food supplements.
Algae are also an important source of iodine. Humans have a daily iodine requirement of 0.2 milligrams on average, which in most cases is not covered by iodine-containing table salt alone. Especially during pregnancy and breastfeeding there is an increased need, which can be excellently covered by algae products. They naturally contain sufficient iodine. However, caution is advised for people who suffer from hypothyroidism: Taking in too much iodine in too short a time can lead to an overreaction of the thyroid gland. For healthy people, one to five grams of dried algae per day is harmless and quite recommendable.
Algae also contain highly concentrated minerals, vitamins and trace elements. These nutrients are valuable not only for the general well-being of the individual, but also for nails, connective tissue, hair and skin. For humans, algae products are such important sources for the absorption of magnesium, iron, calcium, potassium and zinc as well as vitamins A, C, E and B12. Furthermore, algae contain elements such as copper and aluminium, which are usually denied to humans in the usual diet. Algae products are also recommended as food supplements for people who want to reduce their weight in the long term: The nutrients contained in algae are able to prevent the release of harmful substances, or to drain them from the body more easily.
Algae products: Nutrient-rich food supplement
The so-called chlorella algae is particularly popular for its detoxifying effect. It belongs to the group of microalgae and contains, among other important ingredients, the leaf pigment chlorophyll, which has the property of being able to bind metals. Furthermore, the intake of chlorella algae as a food supplement reduces the amount of dioxin in breast milk, while it increases the amount of imunglobulin A in breast milk. Imunglobulin A is primarily responsible for protecting the newborn from infections.
on the other hand, belong to the group of blue-green algae, which contain numerous valuable ingredients. In the medical field, spirulina is seen as a food that serves the prevention and therapy of diseases. Among other things, spirulina is often used as a support for the therapy of cancer, allergies and cardiovascular diseases.
contain a total of eight essential amino acids and a high amount of antioxidants, which have a protective function. In contrast to other algae products, AFA algae contain only a small amount of iodine, which is due to their freshwater origin. On the other hand, the intake of AFA algae products reduces stress and increases mental well-being.
In general, algae products are excellent dietary supplements due to the nutrients they contain: they provide the human body with important minerals that sustainably support the immune system, strengthen the bone structure and prevent fatigue and exhaustion.
