Spirulina Arthrospira

Back

A microscopic blue-green freshwater plant, Spirulina naturally occurs in tropical and subtropical lakes.

Spirulina has been around for a long time, evolving over three billion years ago and is one of the earliest life-forms on Earth.

And it's no wonder it's survived so long with its incredible nutritional profile; spirulina contains 60% protein, is packed with beta-carotene and other vitamins and minerals, is high in GLA (or Gamma Linoleic Acid to give it its full name) and contains a remarkable blue-green pigment called phycocyanin.
