A powerful green superfood.
Used as a sacred power food by the Aztecs and considered the perfect food for space travel by NASA, Spirulina is the superior micro-algae. It is a close cousin of chlorella and related to other sea vegetables like kelp, dulse and nori. Many take spiraling to boost energy levels and provide support to their immune system; but it is so healthy it provides support to nearly every single organ and bodily function.
Spirulina contains a wide range of important nutrients from vitamins K1, K2 and B12 to minerals such as iron, manganese and chromium. It also contains important phytonutrients like carotenoids that act as powerful antioxidants. Spirulina is also a rich source of plant protein.
Grown absorbing lots of Pacific solar energy in Hawaii, this precious algae is bathed in mineral-rich deep ocean water as well as pure spring water. The Spirulina is cool dried, packed in dark glass, and flushed with nitrogen to preserve enzymes and nutrients. Mix a spoonful into your favorite foods, beverages and smoothies.

Q. Why should I take spirulina?
A. Spirulina could be considered nature's multivitamin, for all the nutrients it offers. It is a complete protein, beta carotene, iron, calcium, GLA, and a lot more. Spirulina is the superior micro-algae used as a sacred power food by the Aztecs as well as by NASA for space travel.
Q. Is it organic?
A. Spirulina is grown in farms and due to recent changes in technical specifications for spirulina growing, Nutrex decided to drop the organic label and adhere to its own higher standards. We believe this is the company with the most knowledge and integrity in spirulina production so we respect its decision and continue to carry the product.
Q. Is it wild?
A. Spirulina grows wild in high alkaline lakes but to ensure purity and potency it is much better to farm it. This spirulina is grown in perfect conditions in Hawaii, absorbing lots of Pacific solar energy, bathed in mineral-rich deep ocean water as well as in pure spring water.
Q. How is it processed?
A. Our Spirulina is cool dried, packed in dark glass, and flushed with nitrogen to preserve enzymes and nutrients. Tablets are cold-pressed.
