Spirulina has been consumed for thousands of years by many cultures. The Aztecs gave it to their runners and warriors for strength and endurance. Spirulina is a true superfood. It is densely packed with vitamins such as non-toxic vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), B vitamins, minerals, trace elements, antioxidants, chlorophyll, and phytonutrients. It is over 50% “complete” protein, and unlike high uric acid forming protein from animal products that contribute to osteoporosis and can cause kidney damage, spirulina’s protein is easy to handle vegetable protein.* Spirulina's phycocyanin content actually helps to regenerate the kidneys and protect against kidney failure.* Being of plant origin and being a whole food, the minerals in spirulina (such as iron) are NOT toxic. Isolated iron in supplements and from animals can cause serious toxicity.* The nourishing, regenerating, immune supporting, balancing, and immense benefits of spirulina place it firmly as the #1 superfood in existence. SPIRULINA IS A FOOD!
