Spirulina, Your Brain Health Booster
Powering young minds with ideas
Parents take extra care to feed their growing kids nutritious food to keep their bodies powered up through their high-energy activities. But did you know that children’s brains need to be fed just as much as their bodies?
Although it makes up only 2% of the body’s mass, the brain consumes a whopping 20% of its daily energy intake! Because of this great energy intake, everything children eat (in quantity and quality) directly impacts their brain functions and development.
Spirulina, considered the “best health supplement for mankind in the 21st century” by the World Health Organisation, is the key to powering young minds. In a study in Senegal, children who were given spirulina daily for 2 months saw an average of 10% improvement in their academic performance.
In another study published in Sante Publique, 549 children with an average age of 7 years and 7 months were given 2g of spirulina once daily for 2 months. On average, the children saw a 10% increase in their academic performance.
Certified organic, Elken Spirulina boasts a super-concentration of brain-boosting nutrients for children, including:
100% alkaline food to help neutralise the body’s acidity. Children tend to eat too much acidic food (fast food, sugary drinks, meat, and processed food), which can lead to decreased memory function and lower performance.
Protein, the building material for neurotransmitters, enzymes and hormones, help the brain carry signals to and fro in the body, helping children learn quickly.
Iron, the essential nutrient that helps produce the red blood cells which carry oxygen to brain tissues. This optimises mental alertness in the classroom.
Gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an omega-6 fatty acid that promotes cell regeneration, making it essential for healthy brain function.
