Spirulina Powder


Spirulina is a blue-green algae and is believed to be one of the oldest life forms on Earth.

First used by the Aztecs as an endurance-booster, spirulina is considered a superfood—an all-in-one source of nutrients including protein levels comparable to eggs.

Spirulina has a bitter taste, so people often mix it with yogurts, juices, and smoothies to improve its flavor. Spirulina is commonly available as a supplement at health food stores.

One tablespoon of spirulina contains:

  • Calories: 20
  • Protein: 4 grams
  • Fat: 1 gram
  • Carbohydrates: 2 grams
  • Fiber: 0 grams
  • Sugar: 0 grams

Spirulina is a good source of:

  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Niacin
  • Riboflavin
  • Thiamine

Spirulina also contains magnesium. This mineral supports normal daily functions like muscle use and your heartbeat. It’s also responsible for producing protein and creating energy.

Spirulina is a potent source of nutrients. It contains a powerful plant-based protein. Research shows this may have antioxidant, pain-relief, and brain-protective properties.

The antioxidant and other nutrients in spirulina are linked with several health benefits:

  • Anti-Cancer Properties
    Many antioxidants in spirulina have anti-inflammatory effects in the body. Chronic inflammation contributes to cancer and other diseases.

Phycocyanin—the plant pigment that gives spirulina its blue-green color—has been found to not only reduce inflammation in the body but also block tumor growth and kill cancer cells.

  • Heart Health
    Research has found that the protein in spirulina can reduce the body’s absorption of cholesterol, lowering cholesterol levels. This helps keep your arteries clear, reducing strain on your heart that can lead to heart disease and stroke-causing blood clots.
  • Boosts one's energy
  • Helps improve endurance and reduce fatigue
  • Spirulina is a natural detoxifier
  • Improves body's digestive system
  • It’s an appetite suppressant
