Organic raw Spirulina is a type of live blue-green algae found in most lakes and ponds. It has been consumed for thousands of years by Mexican (Aztecs, Mayans), African, and Asian peoples. Raw Spirulina is considered a complete protein because well over half of it consists of amino acids -- the building blocks of protein. Spirulina likes to grow in hot and alkaline environments which helps ensure its hygienic status, as no other organisms can survive to pollute the waters in which this algae thrives. Spirulina is in fact one of the cleanest, most naturally sterile foods found in nature.

Spirulina powder has been used since ancient times as a source of nutrients and has been said to possess a variety of possible medical uses. Spirulina algae promotes liveliness in many ways. It may support a healthy immune system response, protect from oxidative stress and possibly supports a healthy inflammatory response in the body. Scientific studies also propose that it may be especially good for supporting a healthy brain, heart, immune system and various bodily functions.

Spirulina likes to grow in hot, alkaline environments. This helps to ensure it’s hygienic status, as no other organism can survive in the polluted waters that spirulina thrives in. Spirulina is in fact one of the cleanest, most naturally sterile foods found in nature. Its adaptivity to heat also assures that spirulina retains it’s nutritional value when subjected to high temperatures during processing and shelf storage. This is unlike many other plant foods that rapidly deteriorate at high temperatures. Spirulina algae is also unusual among algae because it is a "nuclear plant"; meaning it is on the developmental cusp between plant and animal. It is considered somewhat above plantlife because it does not have the hard cellulose membranes that are characteristic of plant cells- nor does it have a well defined nucleus. This allows it to be highly digestible in comparison with other algaes such as chlorella.

Organic raw spirulina is a type of live blue-green algae and a natural source of small quantities of iodine / potassium iodide (KI). Iodine is an essential chemical element, used in the production of thyroid hormones that regulate growth and metabolism. Iodine deficiency can lead to an increased risk of pediatric cretinism, mental slowness, lethargy, fatigue, depression, high lipid levels, weight gain and goiter. Natural sources of potassium iodide (KI) / iodine like that found in spirulina, is absorbed by the body more slowly and safely than synthetic iodine. Furthermore, spirulina possibly helps to promote an alkaline pH balance and support a healthy immune system. Our Raw Spirulina is organically cultivated far from industrial centers at a GMP and ISO 9001 certified facility located on the lush and pristine Hainan island in the South China Sea.
