What is Spirulina and why choose this over most other things:
Please note that our Spirulina is grown right here in South Africa (Linden) in closed Bioreactors with filtered water and food grade minerals and nutrients.
Commonly referred to as an algae, spirulina is an ancient form of bacteria that is one of the worlds most well balanced and nutritionally dense whole superfood. Possibly the only true whole food of today.
Spirulina is a microscopic, multicellular organism that is grown in a water based medium. As a crop it is non-seasonal, does not require soil to grow, breathes out oxygen and is extremely conservative of water, energy and land compared to other protein sources.
Each Spirulina organism is approximately the width of a cobweb strand and about 0.1mm to 1mm long on average. When fully grown they can contain over 100 cells, lined up to form a helical shaped strand.
A portion of Fresh Spirulina may contain millions of whole Spirulina organisms.
“Spirulina is the best food for tomorrow, the answer to world food hunger and nutrition” – United Nations
Nutrients: Vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, carotenoids, nucleic acids and enzymes.
A complete protein with all essential amino-acids, containing the highest density of protein in any known food in the world, over 3 times more protein content per volume than beef.
The Spirulina organism is more efficient an converting sunlight to protein than any other living being.
Spirulina is a vegan food source with little environmental impact that delivers an astonishing range of nutrients.
Spirulina is extremely digestible for human beings. Its thin cell walls release nutrients upon contact with the human stomach acid.
So essential for people with compromised digestive systems, or who are nutrient deficient.
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that’s often praised as a superfood for its powerful health benefits, along with it’s close relative, chlorella. Spirulina contains copper, iron, manganese, magnesium and potassium, among other minerals. It also contains a healthy dose of vitamins and disease-fighting antioxidants. To avoid spirulina side effects, it’s important to always purchase a high-quality product. Spirulina benefits include the ability to help the body detox, boost energy, lower blood pressure, eliminate candida and more. – “David Wolfe”
