Spirulina is a blue-green coloured vegetable alga found in both fresh and salt water. It particularly thrives in naturally mineral rich alkaline lakes. Its key requirements are sunlight and a hot climate.
Its microscopic single celled spiral coiled shape holds a rich concentration of easily assimilated complete proteins (including all essential amino acids), antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, nucleic acids, chlorophyll and other phytonutrients. In fact spirulina has a higher percentage of protein (60%) than any other food. It is one of nature’s super foods.
