Spirulina is one of the oldest life forms on Earth. In fact, this blue-green microalgae is partly responsible for producing the oxygen in the planet's atmosphere that billions of years ago allowed the planet's originating life forms to develop. Spirulina has between 55 and 70% protein (more than beef, chicken, and soybeans), 8 essential and 10 non-essential amino acids, as well as high levels of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), beta-carotene, linoleic acid, arachidonic acid, vitamin B12, iron, calcium, phosphorus, nucleic acids RNA & DNA, chlorophyll, and phycocyanin, a pigment-protein complex that is found only in blue-green algae.
Western diets lack sea minerals, it is important to supplement on sea vegetables as they contain essential minerals not found in everyday food, plus a great source of iodine to support our thyroid health. Some benefits of Spirulina include Vitamin K, Vitamin A, B-12, Iron, Manganese, Supports Immune Health, Brain Health, and Supports Cell Health. Here is my Energizing Spirulina Smoothie!
