Spirulina: Natural Superfood

Spirulina (Cyanobacteria/blue-green algae) grows naturally in saltwater and can be harvested and processed easily. It is a natural super food that is used as a dietary health supplement. It is used extensively in nutraceutical food supplements worldwide due to its nutritional and health benefits not just for humans, but also for animals (pet products). They come in the form of powders, tablets, and capsules that are rich in protein and contain essential fatty acids. It is used in the treatment of several health conditions including hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, depression and viral hepatitis. Spirulina’s antioxidant properties balance the body’s pH and strengthen the immune system. Phytocyanin—the main pigment present in Spirulina fights free radicals, relieves stress, and when consumed, it helps reduce body weight without losing nutrition.
