One of nature’s most impressive superfoods, Spirulina is packed with natural minerals, phytonutrients, and vitamins, plus it’s high in plant-based protein. A powerhouse of nutrients, spirulina is popular with athletes, pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, as well as people following vegetarian and vegan diets. Put simply, it’s a great energy booster for anyone.
Spirulina (Arthrospira platensisis) is a nutrient-dense algae which grows in fresh water. As a wholefood, Spirulina is highly bioavailable, easy for the body to assimilate, and suitable for the whole family, so it’s little wonder that Spirulina is one of the most popular food-based supplements in the world.
Spirulina powder contains 60% plant-based protein, which makes it a useful supplement for those following a plant-based diet. And because spirulina is mineral-rich, it provides the body with important minerals like iron and magnesium. Its B-vitamin content can help support healthy energy levels too. In powder form, spirulina can be added to smoothies for a nutrient boost.
Spirulina supplements yield plenty of health-giving phytonutrients. These include carotenoids, xanthophylls, phycocyanins and chlorophyll. These words are certainly tricky to say, but all you really need to know is that they provide antioxidant protection against free radicals, and support skin health as well as assist with heavy metal detoxification. Spirulina’s natural chlorophyll content makes it useful to support healthy alkalinity too.
Our spirulina supplements are highly pure, cultivated naturally in controlled conditions, and free from environmental contaminants that we don’t want to ingest, including herbicides, pesticides and BMAA (Beta-N-Methylamino-L-alanine).
Available in convenient powder, capsules, and tablets, you’ll also find spirulina in superfood green blends and smoothie blends too.
