Spirulina is a microalgae that has been consumed for centuries and is nowadays considered a superfood due to its remarkable nutritional content and health benefits. It’s a leading protein food – over 60% of digestible vegetable protein and has a very high concentration of beta carotene, vitamins B-1,2 and 3, iron, trace minerals and the rare essential fatty acid GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), which makes it an excellent dietary supplement for vegetarian or vegan diets. Spirulina has strong antioxidant and inflammation-fighting properties and latest research suggests that even small amounts of spirulina can help balance and stabilize the immune system, freeing up more metabolic energy for vitality, healing and assimilation of nutrients. It enhances the body’s cellular communication process with its ability to read and repair DNA, kind of like a kind of cellular tune up.
Spirulina is commonly nicknamed “The miracle from the sea.”
