Spirulina (82 products)

 

Spirulina is one of nature’s superfoods. Spirulina is a microalgae (cyanobacteria) that has been consumed for centuries due to its high nutritional value and health benefits. Spirulina is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Spirulina is one of the few foods with a natural gamma linolenic acid (GLA) content. GLA is difficult to find in a food source and normally has to be created by the body. Besides GLA, Spirulina also contains Omega 3-,6 and 9s and is especially high in Omega-3s.

 

When harvested correctly from non-contaminated ponds and bodies of water, it is one of the most potent nutrient sources available.

 

It is largely made up of protein and essential amino acids and is typically recommended to vegetarians due to its high natural iron content.

 

The high concentration of protein and iron also makes it ideal during pregnancy, after surgery, or anytime the immune system needs a boost. Spirulina’s protein is considered a complete source of high-quality protein and is often compared to eggs for the amount of protein per gram. The protein in Spirulina is highly usable and has a net protein utilization rate of between 50-61%.

 

Spirulina supplements come in the form of spirulina powder that can be added to smoothies, juice or guacamole, spirulina tablets, spirulina capsules or in a combination green powder supplement.
