  • The Story:
    Spirulina is one of Earth’s oldest life forms, an algae. It provides a huge range of nutrition and has been enjoyed for centuries by several Asian cultures. Modern science has found that it is of wide nutritional value, and the Japanese government classifies it as a functional food in its own right. Rainforest Foods Spirulina is popular among customers combining improvements in their dietary regime with exercise programmes.

    Spirulina is the name given to Arthrospira platensis and Arthrospira maxima, strains of spiral-shaped algae that flourish in subtropical and tropical waters. It is referred to as a blue-green algae, thanks to the presence of chlorophyll and phycocyanin.

    Spirulina has amazing nutritional characteristics. Its main ingredient is protein, which typically forms around 60-70% of the product. It contains all eight of the essential amino acids – those that our body cannot manufacture for itself and that we must obtain from our food – making it a useful protein source for vegetarians. This is reinforced by the presence of important vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B12 (often lacking in a vegetarian diet), Vitamin A, B-1, B-2, and B-6, Iron, Calcium and antioxidant compounds. Spirulina is also rich in other important phytonutrients, enzymes and trace elements. It provides Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, including Linoleic acid and Gamma-linolenic acid. Spirulina is a good, basic support to a healthy diet.
