Spirulina can be used for infants and children, especially for treating malnutrition and preventing anaemia. Many studies suggest that spirulina is safe to use for children. As Spirulina is a rich source of nutrients, it can be beneficial in kids who don’t get their proper servings of vegetables and fruits.
Spirulina Induces Brain Health in Children
Spirulina contains nucleic acids (DNA & RNA) that provide raw materials for DNA repair by producing high quality brain tissues and increase the ability of red blood cells to carry oxygen to the brain. In addition, it contains AFA that can balance the function of the right and left brain effectively, i.e. logical thinking and instinct, and helps to enhance memory.
Spirulina Helps Preventing Anaemia in Kids
Spirulina is an excellent source of iron, folic acid, protein, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals, and natural pigments, which provide balanced elements for blood formation to prevent anaemia caused by nutrient deficiency.
Improves Mal Nutrition Problems
Spirulina contains concentrated nutrients that are nearly 1000 times higher than assorted fruits and vegetables. It’s a rich source of protein, carbohydrate, chlorophyll, vitamins and minerals. Spirulina is made up of 65% protein and aminoacids that are easily digestible. It also contains vital digestive enzymes which are easily digested and absorbed. In addition, Spirulina is an excellent source of trace minerals making it nature’s multi-vitamin. All these nutrients make Spirulina beneficial in improving mal nutrition in kids who dislike vegetables and fruits.
