What is Spirulina?
Spirulina is the world’s first superfood, and one of the most nutrient-rich foods on Earth.
Spirulina is dark green with mild algae scent.
One of the special traits of spirulina is its rich protein content. It’s 50 to 70 percent protein by weight (which is even better than red meat, which is about 27 percent protein). You would need to consume only 2 tablespoons of spirulina as a protein substitute for a meal. Fifteen to 20 percent of its weight is carbohydrates.
It also contains 18 different amino acids, including all of the essential amino acids and 10 of the 12 nonessential ones, as well as sulfolipids, which may be protective against HIV infection of T-helper cells.
Spirulina is a safe and effective superfood that is highly digestible, with no side effects. It does, however, contain iodine, so those allergic or sensitive to iodine should avoid taking it.
