GLA: Little Known Secret of BioLumina Spirulina!

 

According to a recent study (2019) published in Diabetes Care, people who consume foods rich in linoleic acid may have a measurably reduced risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Spirulina is one of the highest known sources of this essential fatty acid. But that’s not all; The linoleic acid in Spirulina is in an extremely rare form called gamma linoleic acid (GLA). Here’s why that’s important for your health.

 

Linoleic acid is known as an “essential” fatty acid because the body does not make it. In other words, our body gets this essential fatty acid from foods consumed. Once ingested, our body needs to transform the linoleic acid into usable components, of which, gamma linoleic acid is the most important. Many factors, including missing nutrients or minerals can slow the process even further. When you eat Spirulina, you are getting the GLA directly which is why numerous studies show promising results associated with Spirulina ingestion and multiple blood sugar related conditions.

 

The findings in this particular study are not new. But what is impressive is the size of the study with over 200,000 men and women involved in the study. Additionally, there were 4.93 million person-years of follow up. (Link to study here: https://care.diabetesjournals.org/content/early/2019/06/07/dc19-0412)

 

What else has GLA been associated with in scientific studies?

 

 

 

While there are several sources of linoleic acid, such as nuts, seeds, soy and flaxseed oil, the only other substantial natural source of GLA is evening primrose oil, which is quite costly compared to Spirulina. Of course, when you eat Spirulina, you are getting substantial amounts of many other beneficial and rare nutrients as well, especially when you eat BioLumina Spirulina!

The Problem

Do you find yourself sneezing and coughing more than usual? Maybe feeling tired and sluggish, having headaches, interrupted sleep or having nasal drip, itchy nose and other symptoms of allergies? As the pollen seasons continue to grow longer and more intense, daily use of BioLumina Spirulina can make a difference!

 

The Solution

Over the last 30 years, the most commonly reported change when people take BioLumina regularly, comes from those who have seasonal allergies or asthmatic symptoms. While there is research on Spirulina having scientifically proven benefits, as with many super foods, it is not completely recognized and recommended by our medical community. Spirulina is a food and therefore cannot be patented, and a substance that cannot be patented, is not a “money maker” for a drug company whose bottom line is money!

 

The Back Story

The air we breathe is badly polluted with car exhaust, pesticides, herbicides, industrial chemicals (we get these in California from oil drilling, fracking and commercial farming). Recently we have had intense wildfires creating more pollution and stress on our lungs. The  ongoing spraying visible in the skies and the pollen that comes with the change of seasons spell disaster for all of us who need clean air to survive. In some places the smoke or pollen is so bad that people are encouraged to stay inside in filtered air or to wear masks while outdoors!

 

There is a new word for this pollen cloud that hangs over many of our cities, called “pollenpocalypse”. [PHOTO IMAGE OF THIS] This carries serious health implications as the air is positively charged so it retains the toxins, including heavy metals that are literally breathed into our lungs and ultimately in our bodies, fostering disease and ill health!

 

How does it work

How can this potent food BioLumina Spirulina produce so many results with daily intake? Here are some reasons: Spirulina is loaded with carotenoids, and this pigment has been proven to be very effective in treating allergies, by reducing inflammation in the airways and healing the inner tissue of the lungs. In addition, BioLumina has pigments that range from yellow, green, orange, blue, red, to purple and other shades that appear when it is mixed in water or juice. Those pigments support a super response in the body’s immune system, creating a pathway to develop more stem cells, reduce inflammation and “put a lid” on all sorts of chronic conditions. NASA, in their research, found that 1 pound of Spirulina is equal to 1,000 pounds of fruits and veggies! Imagine being able to take in such potent nutrition in one glass or bottle.

 

Another reason that BioLumina is so effective is its ability to cleanse and detox the body. Over a year’s time, our body accumulates more and more toxins from the air and other sources. With daily ingestion of Spirulina, our liver stays clean and clear so it is able to effectively do it’s job. The health of our liver determines, to a large extent, our overall health. The next 3 paragraphs explain the top 3 reasons why BioLumina is so much better than any other Spirulina on the market today.

 

Purity

We have worked with Spirulina for well over 35 years. Seventy-five percent (75%) of the Spirulina sold in the U.S. is now imported from China. A significant portion of that imported Spirulina is contaminated with heavy metals and other toxins. Furthermore, it is irradiated! In addition, some Spirulina, grown in other countries, are grown with animal blood, introducing the possibility of pathogens in the mix. There is also the ongoing issue of radioactive waste being dumped into the Pacific Ocean, making another American source of Spirulina unhealthy. BioLumina is grown in triple filtered water and tested and monitored more than any Spirulina on Earth. Some of the testing we do is not done at any other Spirulina farm (for example, we test the purity down to the nano scale).

 

Potency

BioLumina Spirulina is the most nutrient dense form of Spirulina. For example, very few brands of Spirulina have a phycocyanin content even close to 15% and most are well under 10%. (We’ve recently noticed companies that boast about their Spirulina having  a 7% phycocyanin content) Phycocyanin is the blue pigment in Spirulina and is the most powerful of all the pigments in Spirulina. While we are not allowed to make medical claims about this food, Spirulina, research suggests that phycocyanin may be important in healing many neurologically related conditions due to its ability to assist the body to create its own neural stem cells.

BioLumina Spirulina always contains 20% or more Phycocyanin content. As we write this article, our current crop of BioLumina Spirulina measures at almost 22%! There is no other Spirulina on the market today that even comes close. How do we do it, you may ask? That is one of our trade secrets but we will say that it has to do with several factors. The knowledge of our growers, technology, and climate. BioLumina is grown in temperatures  that reach 110-130℉, which is crucial aspect of developing the super high phycocyanin content.

 

Process

Quantum Infusion,™ the science based process which embeds energy frequencies of balance, core strength and stress recovery directly into our Spirulina, works like acupuncture (except without the needles and much stronger) giving you health benefits beyond the physical/chemical attributes of this amazing superfood.

 Time to Cleanse and Detox your Body and Your Environment! 

It is now Springtime, the most advantageous time to detox our bodies and our environments! BioLumina Spirulina is known for its ability to provide a super cleanse. It is not only the most nutritious food on planet earth (80-95% digestible), but because of its ability to remove toxins it is the best way to detox! Fasting can be challenging but it’s easier with BioLumina. You achieve the purpose of a fast (resting the digestive system) while not starving your body, as a traditional fast can do. Once you fast with BioLumina, you’ll never want to do it any other way!

BioLumina Spirulina contains 20% or more of the potent phytonutrient, Phycocyanin. Most Spirulina on the market has 10% or less, and is not as effective at building and protecting the body’s immune system. With all the pollutants, unhealthy viruses and bacteria around us, we all need to boost our body’s ability to heal (or stay healthy) so we can pursue our true heart’s desires!

BioLumina is also Quantum Infused so it works in concert with our body’s meridian system to provide an extra boost to our health. It’s like getting an acupuncture treatment in your smoothie! To cleanse from the inside-out is truly the first step toward a true Spring cleaning.

BioLumina Spirulina is the best we have found to achieve that end. Here are some reasons why:

- mood stabilizer, with the whole range of B-Vitamins, including a super dose of B-12
- replaces vitamins 
and minerals lost due to stress
- fights free radicals
- complete vegetable protein, balancing blood sugar
- pigments that protect the skin from the sun
- cleanses arsenic, fluoride, lead, mercury, pesticides 
and other pollutants from the body
- cleanses the liver
- naturally satisfies hunger
- quick sustained energy
- reduces or eliminates allergies 
and asthmatic symptoms
- and these are only a few of the reasons to cleanse with BioLumina

Fasting is as old as human civilization. Many ask if total abstinence from all food is the only way to cleanse. Here are some tips on how to effectively use BioLumina to loose weight and/or cleanse the BioLumina way:

- use it as a meal replacement, having a noon meal and replacing Breakfast and Dinner with a fruit and/or vegetable smoothie
- fast 1 or 2 days weekly, allowing the digestive system to relax, with no food intake
- fast completely for 3-10 days, using fruit or veggie BioLumina smoothies 3 times daily
- fast from 3-10 days using BioLumina and water only
- add BioLumina to your daily diet, eating only fruits 
and veggies
- eliminate or reduce the amount of heavy foods such as meat, grains and dairy, and increase the BioLumina in your diet.

- BioLumina Spirulina Brain Function, Mood & Depression -

Preliminary Report

If you cope with any sort of mood challenge such as depression, from mild to serious, dopamine imbalance is likely a factor. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays an important role in brain functions (as well as acting in the peripheral nervous system to support healthy immunity, digestion and excretion). “A localized deficiency in dopamine is believed to cause problems such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, unipolar depression and even persistent anxiety. On the other hand, an excess of dopamine can lead to severe mood disturbances such as bipolar disorder.”(3)

Bio-hackers are proving the Uridine Stack can assist.(Bio-hackers are the brave individuals exploring the new frontier of precise molecular nutritional potentials in addressing optimal function. A Stack is a grouping of nutrients that enhance one another’s performance.) 

Uridine is a naturally occurring nutrient. “There are rich food sources of Uridine and these food sources include beer, porcine and bovine liver, fish, mushrooms, broccoli, Chinese cabbage, parsley, oats, and baker’s yeast…. While Uridine may be present in rich quantities in common food sources, a study conducted in 1981 showed that the Uridine from most of these food sources has very poor bioavailability. ”(1) Uridine, in its bioavailable form, crosses the blood-brain barrier. “Uridine is a precurser to CDP Choline. This is a form of the nutrient Choline that is able to cross the blood brain barrier, and once it does, it is used to make vital neurochemicals.”(2)

The Uridine Stack consists of this group of nutrients: Uridine, DHA, Choline, Complete B Vitamins. The Bio-hackers, not knowing about our wonderful BioLumina, are obliged to bring together these nutrients from different sources. Here is our advantage: Every nutrient in the Uridine Stack is found in bio-available form in BioLumina Spirulina, the only known food to bring all these elements together in one form – just as Mother Nature made them.(4) Further, spirulina is the only known vegan source of DHA, EPA and Vitamin B12.

So, what benefits might we expect by including the bioavailable Uridine Stack in BioLumina in our diets?

- improvement in mood disorders, such as depression
- improvement in memory function
- treating anemia
- increase in general motivation
- reducing anxiety
- a sense of meeting one’s potential
- improved capacity to learn and retain information

THE FOREFRONT OF NUTRITIONAL SCIENCE: 

BIOPHOTONS & PHYTONUTRIENTS

We are multi-octave beings. We all experience this directly through our thoughts, our emotions, our actions -- our consciousness. Each of these realms is a frequency band. Together they make up a continuum, what we might think of as a "rainbow" of awareness. The more aligned these layers of consciousness are the more Life Vitality we display: health, happiness, love and participation.

In traditional nutrition, we look at the more substantial molecules: fats, carbs and proteins. To support the entire human system (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual), we need to consider more subtle nutrients: phytonutrients.

Phytonutrients are pigments created by plants. Examples would be chlorophyll (green), beta-carotene (orange), phycocyanin (royal blue). xeazanthin (red). The phytonutrients in our diets account for our biophotonic well-being.

Biophotons are packets of light created and emanated by living systems. The more vital the organism, the more biophotonic activity. Organisms acquire biophotons in two ways: through their own metabolic processes and from the environment through digestion.

This brings us to BIOLUMINA SPIRULINA: BioLumina Spirulina is the world's most concentrated and broad-spectrum source of phytonutrients. NASA scientists state that a pound of ordinary-quality spirulina provides the nutritional equivalent of 1000 (one thousand) pounds of mixed fruits and vegetables. BioLumina is an exceptional spirulina: raw, better-than-organic, 20% phyco and quantum infused with subtle-energy signatures of well-being. Being the richest source of phytonutrients means that BioLumina is a most concentrated source of biophotons.

Health is all about Light.
That's why we call it Bio (life) Lumina (light).
Join us in upping your own radiance!

Eat LIGHT!
