Sourced from across the globe

Cyanobacteria like spirulina are able to survive under extreme conditions which other microorganisms cannot tolerate such as an alkaline pH of 11 and temperatures up to 45°C. They are also photoautotrophs – they use carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and sunlight to create energy, and for these reasons they are believed to be one of the first organisms to have colonised the earth. 

Our spirulina is grown on a peninsula in the South China Sea. This location is ideal for spirulina cultivation as it offers consistently warm temperatures and long hours of sunshine which are essential for productive growth rates. The farm is surrounded by pristine natural forests and is completely isolated from urban areas and sources of agricultural pollution. Our spirulina is routinely tested for the presence of mercury, lead and other contaminants to ensure that the finished product is completely pure and poses no risk of heavy metal poisoning.
