Spirulina (Spirulina platensis) is one of the most ancient green superfood plants on earth. These tiny, single-celled freshwater micro algae contain an impressive 60% protein content! This lean & green protein source is also a natural source of minerals, including iron, calcium, and magnesium. Its high levels of B12 and protein make it the perfect addition to the diet of vegetarians. Spirulina contains all the essential amino acids and essential fats, along with complex carbohydrates, fibre, a wide range of vitamins and minerals including antioxidants, carotenoids (especially lutein) and nucleic acids. Researchers have found that Spirulina intake reduces blood cholesterol and inflammation. Regular supplementation with Spirulina may removes accumulated toxins in the body, creating a gentle and safe daily cleansing effect.
