What is Spirulina?

Spirulina is a single-celled plant originating from the blue-green algae family; it is named for its spiral, coil like shape. Algae are old life forms responsible for producing and sustaining our oxygenated atmosphere. Spirulina is not a salt-water algae; it grows in fresh and brackish inland waters. Because it is so low on the food chain, it is packed with nutrients and energy. Spirulina can be grown almost anywhere, in water supplies that are not suitable for drinking (inland in brackish and fresh water ponds), and in existing desert areas without cutting down trees to make room.

Spirulina yields 20 times more protein per acre than soybeans. Spirulina is a great source of digestible protein. It consists of 70% protein (compare to beef's 22%), 5% fat (good fats), and no cholesterol (it's a plant). Spirulina contains an array of vitamins and minerals, including B-12, an essential nutrient for healthy nerves and tissues, which vegetarians must seek. The beta-carotene found in spirulina is ten times more concentrated than carrots. For those who do not eat several servings of vegetables each day, supplementing with spirulina provides the powerful antioxidant beta carotene to help support the body's defenses. This wonder food contains eight essential amino acids, the essential fatty acid Gamma Linolenic Acid and phytonutrients. Its deep, rich colours come from a spectrum of natural pigments that harvest the sun's energy; chlorophyll (green), carotenoids (yellow & orange) and phycocyanin (blue).
