Spirulina is a single-celled, blue-green algae produced by photosynthesis – the natural process by which plants absorb energy from sunlight. It is a rich source of protein and is abundant in all nine of the essential amino acids. It is a highly concentrated source of a wide variety of vitamins and minerals. This Organic Spirulina Powder is grown naturally in pools of pure water and harvested once it reaches the required density.
Spirulina powder is an easy way to incorporate more protein in your diet by simply adding it to a shot of water and drinking up to twice a day.
Quality and provenance:
The fierce spirulina thrives in a hostile environment, deadly to most microorganisms. So it can be organically farmed without need for chemical pesticides to sterilise it. It is grown on an island in the South China Sea – surrounded by rich forest, protected from urban or agricultural pollution.
It was rigorously tested for mercury, lead and other contaminants, guaranteeing a pure product without risk of heavy metal poisoning. The growing ponds are tested daily for pH value and optical density.
Spirulina is harvested with a fine mesh-screen that captures the small coiled filaments from the water. It’s then sieved and transferred to a washing pond, before being hand-washed over a mesh-screen, ensuring that only pure spirulina is processed. This wet spirulina is placed in a drying chamber which quickly evaporates all the moisture, while preserving the nutrient content, leaving the fine green powder which we package for you.
The chromium, iron and magnesium in the Spirulina contribute to immune system function, bone and muscle health and blood sugar support.
Spirulina is high in calcium, which helps maintain a healthy digestive system. It is also high in iodine and zinc, which contribute to healthy hair, skin and nails.
Spirulina protein is abundant in all nine of the essential amino acids – those that we cannot make for ourselves and so must obtain from food.
How to use spirulina powder:
We recommend that you take one-two heaped teaspoons mixed with water, juice or a smoothie per day. We also recommend that you start with a smaller serving and increase this gradually.
This product should not be used as a substitute for a varied balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Do not exceed the suggested use.
