Organic Cracker with Almonds, Italian Spirulina and Rosemary.
Spirulina is a microalga that has a very high protein content inside and includes all 21 amino acids. Historically it has been used by many peoples as a food and medicine since ancient times, but only a few years ago its nutritional and pharmacological potential was truly discovered. Precisely for this reason, research and projects on this microorganism are increasing. With regard to Spirulina there is a great interest due to the ability of the alga to produce numerous bioactive compounds such as polysaccharides, starch, proteins, fatty acids, carotenoids, antioxidants, enzymes, polymers, peptides and sterols. Spirulina also produces mineral salts, lutein and carotenoids, long chain fatty acids Omega 3, many vitamins especially of the group B. Numerous studies and laboratory tests are trying to deepen and demonstrate the support that Spirulina gives to growth, its healing capabilities for digestive disorders and its action against tumors.
In particular Spirulina:
- Has antioxidant properties: C-phycocyanin (C-PC), active content in the algae, inhibits the enzyme NADPH oxidase, thus reducing the production of the superoxide radical.
- Strengthens the immune system: the sulphurated polysaccharides, which can be separated from the aqueous extract of Spirulina (like calcium-spirulan), enjoy an immunomodulatory and antiviral function, stimulating the production of antibodies.
- It has lipid-lowering effects: it decreases LDL and VLDL cholesterol in the blood, favoring an increase in HDL cholesterol, with a consequent reduction in the atherogenic index.
-It has anti-inflammatory effects: C-phycocyanin is a natural COX-2 inhibitor and can control the inflammatory process.
The benefits that Spirulina brings are innumerable and also include:
-The beneficial action on the cardiovascular system, eyes and brain.
- Positive effects on skin and hair: the action of Spirulina is effective both against greasy hair and to prevent loss, it is also useful against dandruff or loss of fiber and shine. It is often used in the formulation of cosmetics and hair lotions.
- Contrast of degenerative eye maculopathy due to aging.
- Control of body weight.
Spirulina is also used by athletes and sportsmen; in fact, the branched amino acids or BCAAs contained in spirulina, help to improve muscle growth, reduce muscle pain caused by very intense physical exercise, as well as reduce post-workout muscle fatigue, accelerating recovery times. These characteristics, combined with the high content of vitamins and minerals and the complete protein intake, make Spirulina an essential element for the diet of athletes and those who practice sport or regular physical activity, so much so that it is increasingly defined " superfood. "

The processing of snacks is completely handmade. All the ingredients are kneaded "cold" without the use of machinery that could heat the product.
The germination process produces amino acids, enzymes, vitamins and trace elements present in the seed. In this way, this precious "nutritional capital" is made bioavailable and easily assimilated.
The seeds are activated.
Germination is the characteristic that distinguishes Sempreverde BIOGERMOGLI. It is a natural process that turns the seed into a sprout.
Each seed contains an embryo (a species of miniature plant) which, during the germination process, grows and synthesizes functional substances including enzymes, vitamins, proteins, trace elements, Omega 3. The sprout is carefully followed throughout the development phase , maintaining the right humidity and then being dehydrated through a careful drying process. In this way a truly healthy food without any contamination is obtained.
Seed activation involves a rehydration period in water and a pre-sprouting period. In nature, the seed is covered with nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances (enzyme inhibitors, phytates, phytic acid, polyphenols, tannins) that give the characteristic bitter aftertaste of nuts and seeds and that the activation process applied is able to eliminate. The activated seeds (almonds, sunflower, flax) are more assimilable and digestible by the body, resulting lighter, nutritious and tasty.
Why consume the sprouts?
-Because they contain high percentages (up to 100% more than the seed) of proteins, vitamins, mineral salts and other beneficial substances such as fiber and essential fatty acids.
-Because they are more digestible: the proteins present in the grain undergo a transformation and are "predigested" by enzymes, breaking down into amino acids of easier and faster assimilation.
-Because they help the body to function properly: they contain metabolic enzymes that allow our body to remain healthy.
-Because they are alkalizing and counteract the acidification of the body.
