We interviewed Joan Espirulina: All about Spirulina and its Production in Lleida at WITH THIS WORKS Esteve Doménech

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that is grown in alkaline lakes and is known to be a superfood due to its high content of protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is commonly used as a dietary supplement to improve overall health and increase energy. Spirulina is especially popular among athletes for its benefits for muscle recovery, increased energy, and improved physical performance.

Joan Espirulina has decided to produce spirulina in Lleida, taking advantage of the favourable climate of the region and replicating the necessary conditions for its cultivation. Although he is not the only producer in Spain, Joan stands out for the quality and production method he uses, offering a superior product in the market.

Spirulina is particularly effective for people with protein deficiency, as it is a complete source of protein. It is also useful for strengthening the immune system, improving digestive health, and detoxifying the body. According to studies, Joan’s spirulina is of high quality, ensuring that the final product is pure and nutritious. The quality of spirulina influences how the body assimilates it, and a low-quality spirulina may not be as effective or even cause unwanted effects.

There are different types of spirulina, such as blue spirulina, which contains a pigment called phycocyanin, with additional antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Green spirulina is the most commonly known and used form. Joan explains that although the production and packaging of her spirulina are very strict and organic, imported spirulina may not meet the same standards.

Spirulina can be consumed in several formats: powder, tablets, capsules, and fresh. Fresh spirulina is the most differential, as it retains its nutritional properties better and has a more pleasant taste than dried spirulina. Joan highlights the promising future of her project, with a growing demand for natural products and superfoods, and sees great potential in spirulina to be more recognized and used for its health benefits.

The life of a small entrepreneur like Joan, who puts so much soul into her project, is full of challenges but it is also very rewarding. Every day brings new opportunities and learnings, and seeing how your product helps improve people’s health and well-being is a great reward.

Joan reflects on why products such as spirulina, with so many natural properties, are not more encouraged. The lack of incentive may be due to competition with conventional drugs and a lack of knowledge about the benefits of these superfoods. However, more and more people are looking for natural alternatives to improve their health.

He firmly believes that we are on the threshold of an explosion in the popularity of superfoods. Awareness of health and nutrition is growing, and people are increasingly looking for natural and sustainable options. On a cultural level, there is a growing movement for education about natural alternatives, although there is still much to be done to make these options more widely accepted and used.

For those who doubt the effectiveness of spirulina, Joan recommends trying it out for themselves and educating yourself on the science-backed benefits. Personal experience and scientific studies can change many perceptions, proving that spirulina is an effective and natural option for improving health.
