If you want a highly nutritious alternative to meat, look no further: Spirulina, a type of blue-green algae which grows naturally in ponds or lakes, is one of the most nourishing superfoods around, being loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants (especially phycocyanin, a potent anti-inflammatory) AND high quality protein. Not only does it provide every type of essential amino acid in an easily digested form,* but it also supplies Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), a fatty acid with anti-inflammatory properties that's also found in breast milk. In addition to being a good vegetarian source of protein, Spirulina has been used to promote alkalinity, and for cleansing or detoxification purposes. Cultivated in a pristine, controlled environment and lab-tested for purity, this is the cleanest Certified Organic Spirulina available in the health food industry.**
Canadian product label is slightly different than shown.
* Unlike the similar chlorophyll-rich green food Chlorella, Spirulina has soft cell walls, so it's highly digestible and its nutrients are easy to absorb as is, without needing to break the cell walls first.
** The same trait that helps make Spirulina so nutritious -- its ability to draw in minerals and other nutrients from the surrounding waters -- can also make it harmful, unless it comes from a reliable source, because it can also easily absorb heavy metals, pesticides, or other chemicals or toxins. Organic Traditions offers the cleanest, safest, third party tested Certified Organic Spirulina in the industry. It's cultivated in a pristine, controlled environment, in water rich in naturally occurring nutrients and minerals, and each batch undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it's contaminant free.
