Spirulina is a nutrient-rich blue-green algae found in freshwater ponds around the world. Associated with a high protein content, spirulina is packed with a wide variety of macro and micronutrients such as vitamins and minerals. Our organic spirulina tablets offer a great way to get all the goodness of spirulina without having to incorporate it into recipes.
As a type of cyanobacteria, spirulina use photosynthesis to generate energy from sunlight and are thought to have been one of the oldest organisms in the world – living on earth over 3.5 billion years ago. In fact, algae such as spirulina are thought to have transformed the earth’s atmosphere by generating as much as 90% of its oxygen allowing for new life to form.
Spirulina was prized by the Aztecs and known to have grown in the Mexican lake Texcoco in the 16th century. Today, spirulina cultivated widely around the world. Our organic spirulina grows in the Hainan and Jiangxi regions of China in pure freshwater ponds hidden deep within natural forests away from polluted industrial cities.
Spirulina is so nutrient-dense that it has even been considered by NASA to fuel astronauts on space missions. Take 1-2 spirulina tablets with each meal to get your fix of spirulina’s impressive nutritional properties.
