SpiruVEGAN is a unique formulation composed of premium quality, organic bioactive molecules. It is specially developed for people who need an extra supply of vitamin B12 in their diet. Ecospirulina has collaborated with 2 professional nutritionists to incorporate the right amount of cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12) along with vitamin C into our pure organic spirulina tablets.
Our organic spirulina is cultivated in the Serra Calderona Natural Reserve (Valencia, Spain), in a protected environment and with high quality water. The dehydration process is carried out at low temperature (<40ºC) to preserve all its nutritional properties and to remain a raw food.
Despite containing vitamin B12, spirulina is not considered to be a verifiable source of this vitamin: its complete absorption process by the organism is not known today and it is hypothesized that only a part (between 20 and 40%) of the vitamin B12 in spirulina is absorbed by the organism. The remaining part being an inactive form of vitamin B12 for humans.
In addition, the vitamin B12 content of spirulina may vary depending on the culture conditions. Therefore, we have responded to the strong demand of our customers by developing this unique formula.
SpiruVEGAN is ideal for vegetarians and vegans as well as pregnant women, as it represents an assured supply of vitamin B12 or cyanocobalamin, together with the high nutritional density of spirulina.
Vitamin B12 is found naturally in foods of animal origin (meat, fish, eggs, dairy products...). It is necessary for DNA synthesis, for the proper functioning of the brain and central nervous system and for the production of red blood cells. It accumulates mainly in the liver in amounts ranging from 1-5 mg, so when there is a deficiency, symptoms may take years to manifest. These symptoms range from fatigue and anemia, to bone marrow aplasia, neurological alterations and risk of cardiomyopathy. That is why nutritionists recommend supplementing vegetarian and vegan diets periodically with this vitamin.
The vitamin C included in the formula complements the multivitamin contribution of spirulina and improves the assimilation of the iron contained in spirulina. It is a powerful antioxidant that acts against free radicals.
The Nutritional Reference Value (NRV) in vitamin B12 is 2.5 microgram (EU Reg. 1169/2011) for an adult person.
4 tablets provide:
100% of the Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) in vitamin B12*,
16 mg of vitamin C
* 1 tablet of SpiruVEGAN contains 40 micrograms of cyanocobalamin, prepared for a passive diffusion of 2% in the case of oral intake, regardless of the intrinsic factor.
It is recommended to gradually start taking 1 to 2 tablets in the first week, 2 to 3 in the second week and 4 tablets from the third week for an adult person. People with a heavy physical load (sportsmen, physical work) can supplement SpiruVEGAN with pure spirulina, in tablets or noodles to be added to their food to reinforce their complete nutritional intake.
They can be taken as a single dose on an empty stomach with a fruit juice for example, or in a couple of doses throughout the day, before meals. In this way, and thanks to the mixture with spirulina, the intestinal absorption of nutrients is optimal.
A decrease in the absorption of vitamin B12 in the ileum has been observed with the intake of Metformin and colchicine-containing drugs.
Note: SpiruVEGAN is a fortified food and not a medicine. It is not suitable in cases of pernicious anemia.
