Spirulina is the flagship of natural Super Food which BioEarth / Agisko delivers to athletes and health conscious people.
The health benefits of Spirulina has been known for hundreds of years because of its high levels of protein, vitamins (E, B1, B2, B3, B12, K), nutrients (iron, magnesium, potassium), amino acids, enzymes against free radicals, reducing cholesterol levels, reducing levels of inflammation, and studies conducted on the reduction of cancer symptoms.
* Spirulina has 3900% more beta-carotene than carrots
* Spirulina has 2300% more iron than spinach
* Spirulina has 300% more calcium than whole milk
* Spirulina has 375% more protein than tofu, and 200 % more than meat
* Three grams of Spirulina has more antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity than five servings of vegetable
Comparing phytonutrient levels, Spirulina is 31 times more effective than blueberries, 60 times more effective than spinach and 700 times more effective than apples!
Developed from Spiruviva and built on the delivery of natural nutrition from Spirulina, +FERRO adds additional Chlorella and iron to increase low iron levels.
This is especially important for all athletes in high training and women. Studies have routinely found that athletes, especially female athletes, are often iron-deficient or anaemic. Iron is essential for athletic performance. It is the component of hemoglobin in red blood cells that transport oxygen to the cells and carries carbon dioxide away.
All people lose small amounts of iron through sweating. This puts endurance athletes, such as long distance runners, cyclists, triathletes or cross-country skiiers, at risk of iron deficiency. Without enough iron, the body can't use oxygen properly to produce energy.
This impairs any athlete's ability to compete.

During sustained work, the energy-producing mitochondria inside the cells are able to produce as much energy as the muscles need by using the oxygen-based pathway of metabolism. However, if a point is reached when the cells cannot keep up with demand, such as at increased intensity, the body switches over to a system of energy production without the use of oxygen. A byproduct of this metabolism is lactic acid.
The accumulation of lactic acid inside the blood and muscles can cause pain and fatigue.
LITHOBASE returns the body PH level to 7 (ideal 7 - 7.4) to reduce fatigue and muscle pain.
