Our Spirulina is a unique and superior strain with the highest nutritional content in the world. It is all-natural, non-GMO, and is the only Spirulina cultured in a Biosecure Zone free of herbicides and pesticides. Our Spirulina thrives in ponds fed with 100% potable water from deep ocean water drawn from 2000 feet below the surface. Spirulina is a microscopic single-celled algae that has the appearance under a microscope of a spiral strand, hence Spirulina.
During the early evolution of life on this planet, one of the first organisms created was algae. This food has been present on earth for over 3.5 billion years. Spirulina is high in chlorophyll, plant blood which has magnesium as its central atom and gives plants their dark green color. Human blood has iron as its central atom, which aside from that, they have basically the same chemistry and can readily repair tissues, strengthen immunity, boost energy, support cellular health, cardiovascular health and eye function.
Spirulina is 60-70% protein by weight (highest known concentration of any food source) and is an amazing source of complete protein. It has 3100 times more beta carotene than carrots, 5500 times the iron of spinach, 600 times more protein than tofu and 280 times the antioxidants of blueberries. It's also the best source of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), an anti-inflammatory essential fatty acid necessary for a healthy nervous system.
NASA conducted studies on Spirulina as a potential food for space travel and found that 1 kilogram of spirulina is equal to in nutrient content to 1000 kilograms of assorted vegetables. It also provided the primary protein requirements for millions of people in Mexico City for an estimated 5,000 years!
Spirulina makes as a great nutrient-dense addition to smoothies, desserts and recipes.
