One of the oldest life forms on Earth, spirulina is a blue-green cyanobacteria that helped produce the oxygen in our atmosphere billions of years ago so that other life forms could appear.
Spirulina is a concentrated and natural superfood. Spirulina is very rich in amino acids (protein), vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, trace elements and anti-oxidants.
Next to water protein is the most abundant compound in our bodies. Spirulina is considered the most complete and readily digestible protein source known to mankind. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein and are all extremely important for the optimum function of the human body and mind. Spirulina contains all the essential and non-essential amino acids that your body needs to thrive. Spirulina contains 60-75% complete protein that is 90-95% digestible. NASA uses spirulina as a food for astronauts because of its uniquely high nutrient densities in such small dosages.
