Spirulina has been growing on our planet since life first formed, being a fundamental food source for all organisms. It is a type of microscopic blue-green algae that grow in freshwater, alkaline lakes and ponds. The Aztec civilization thrived on spirulina for centuries.
Spirulina is the richest and most digestible source of protein. It has 60-70% protein in comparison to 20% in beef. As spirulina comes in raw powder form, its protein is four times more absorbable than protein that comes from beef. It takes significantly less effort, and enzyme activity, to break spirulina protein down into amino acids. Unlike animal foods, spirulina does not have to be cooked, meaning its array of nutrients are preserved.
Spirulina powder is very high in Gamma Linoleic Acid (GLA), being the second highest source after "mother’s milk". GLA is known to regulate the hormone system.
The phenomenal micro-algae, Spirulina, are very rich in beta-carotene, iron and Vitamin B complex, chlorophyll – all these nutrients helping to gradually strengthen the body in times of stress.
There have been numerous scientific studies across the globe proving the multiple health benefits of spirulina. It is the food proposed for fighting global malnutrition by the IIMSAM (Intergovernmental Institution for the Use of Micro-Algae Spirulina Against Malnutrition).
It is a truly environment-friendly plant. Spirulina does not require any fertile soil for cultivation. As per IIMSAM spirulina “requires less energy input per kilo than soy, corn or bovine protein”. Spirulina uses “less water per kilo of protein than other foods as the water is recycled back to the ponds after harvesting”. Spirulina is more efficient in oxygen production and absorption of carbon dioxide than forests.
