Spirulina contains a number of beneficial substances, vitamins and minerals, such as B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, C, D, A, E, K, carotenes and more.
Spirulina is absolutely packed with protein content. It also has phycocyanin, which is a blue-green substance with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Spirulina does not naturally occur in a quantity that would satisfy market demand and is therefore artificially cultivated in water tanks, with Japan being its largest producer.
A top green layer is collected from the surface of the water, filtered, solidified, dried and made into a powder or tablet.
