$19.33 – $193.30
For thousands of years the native peoples of Mexico, Africa, and Asia have eaten spirulina and made it one of their major sources of protein. The plant’s chemical makeup is 65% amino acids, including the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid.
Spirulina — is classified as cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae. Spirulina is available in capsules, tablets, and powder and has been incorporated in certain foods and beverages such as energy bars, popcorn, and smoothies.
Spirulina can grow in extreme conditions inhospitable to most other water-dwelling organisms. It’s generally cultivated in manmade or natural lakes, harvested, and freeze-dried.
Spirulina boasts a 60% protein content — it’s a richer source of protein than most vegetables — and it’s also a good source of beta-carotene, various minerals, and gamma-linolenic acid, an essential fatty acid.
It is thought that spirulina benefits also include weight loss, increased energy, and stimulation of the immune system.
