Spirulina is a natural “Blue-Green Algae” (cyanobacteria) powder that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins and other nutrients. When harvested correctly from non-contaminated ponds and bodies of water, it is one of the most potent nutrient sources available.
It is largely made up of protein and essential amino acids, and is typically recommended to vegetarians due to its high natural iron content.
The high concentration of protein and iron also makes it ideal during pregnancy, after surgery, or anytime the immune system needs a boost.
Spirulina, a high source of nutrition, is found throughout the world. The usage of Spirulina has spread to the public from its discovery by a tribe on the continent of South America. The tribals have sustained their lives by consuming one kind of algae which the local tribe called “Dihe”.They used baskets to collect the algae from the lake’s surface, sun dry, crush to dust and keep for food preparation.
The anthropologists who discovered this tribe were curious about how their population existed due to the tribe’s insufficient intake of meat protein while they still continued to live without any physical development problem. When the scientists undertook research, they found out that people of this tribe consume Spirulina which gives them high nutrients to maintain their body.
