Like many other health conscious people around today its quite probable that you have never discovered spirulina, let alone tasted it, so what is spirulina and why is it quickly becoming the most popular natural health supplement in the world?

Quite simply, spirulina is an algae. It is mainly grown in commercial tanks and is then usually freeze dried or turned into spirulina capsules or spirulina tablets before being sold to health food practitioners.

Spirulina has an incredibly high chlorophyll content, with as much as 70% in fact, and it is the high density of chlorophyll that gives spirulina the deep green/blue colour it is famed for. As a matter of fact Nestle have begun using spirulina as a natural colouring for their blue smarties, which you might recollect was abandoned in 2006 until recently due to the chemical colourings they previously used. (Nestle introduced natural colours and flavours across their entire range due to health worries over the chemicals used)

Spirulina is also filled with antioxidants, which have been shown to help prevent free radical destruction in our bodies.

Spirulina is also abundant with minerals and vitamins including vitamin B12, C and E aswell as many other vital nutrients our bodies need to function properly. In fact the list of health benefits of spirulina are just far too numerous to discuss here so why not pop over to our website for more information on spirulina and the numerous benefits we can all achieve from using it.
