Spirulina contains rich vegetable protein (60~ 63 %, 3~4 times higher than fish or beef ), multi Vitamins (Vitamin B 12 is 3~4 times higher than animal liver), which is particularly lacking in a vegetarian diet. It contains a wide range of minerals (including Iron, Potassium, Magnesium Sodium, Phosphorus, Calcium etc.), a high volume of Beta- carotene which protects cells (5 time more than carrots, 40 time more than spinach), high volumes of gamma-Linolein acid (which can reduce cholesterol and prevent heart disease). Further, Spirulina contains Phycocyanin which can only be found in Spirulina.
With over 100 nutrients, Spirulina is often described as the most complete food source in the world.

To take spirulina mix with cold or warm water. You need about 2tsp per day.


Mix 2 tsp spirulina with 1 1/2 tbsp of almond milk. Mix until smooth. Add 2 tsp almond butter, and mix again. Stir in 1 1/2 tbsp of maple syrup and 2 tbsp orange juice, and give it a final stir. Pour over 2 -3 cups of cut up fruit. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp shredded coconut and 1/2 cup kamut flake cereal. VERY GOOD.

  1. I used to like spirulina but I think Dr. Michael Greger has a short video out on his site about how it was linked to alzheimer's somehow, that there was something in it or maybe that they use to grow it.
    Maybe it is very high in copper content because copper is linked? I don't know.......wish I knew for sure because in theory the stuff is so great!
