Green algae ( Dunaliella Salina Algae )

Green algae ( Dunaliella Salina Algae )

The green alga Dunaliella Salina thrives in protected waters off Australia. They are elementarily arranged unicellular microalgae. They appeared 500 million years ago. They have a fine cell membrane that makes them easily digestible by the human body.

They abound in beneficial nutrients, vitamins and minerals. This is thanks to the clean, mineral-filled sea waters in which they grow.

Green algae is one of the richest sources to date of betacarotene ( this is a powerful antioxidant ). They contain over 200 times more betacarotene than carrots. The good thing in this case is that betacarotene is from a natural source and many times superior in antioxidant properties artificially synthesized.

Also green algae is rich in lutein ( helps improve vision ), alpha carotene, zeaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, chlorophyll, polysaccharides and essential fatty acids ( Omega-3, Omega-6 ).
