This blue-green algae is a freshwater plant that is now one of the most researched and, along with its cousin chlorella, most discussed for superfoods today. Grown all over the world from Mexico to Africa to even Hawaii, spirulina is known for its intense flavor and even more powerful nutritional profile.
Spirulina is a type of blue-green microalgae that can grow in both fresh and salt water and is consumed by humans and animals. There are two species of the spirulina plant, including Arthrospira platensis and Arthrospira maxima. Arthrospira platensis and Arthrospira maxima are cultivated all over the world and are used both as a food supplement (in the form of tablets, flakes and powder) and as a complete food – and even for livestock and fish.
There are many reviews of spirulina that claim that this amazing alga can do everything from boosting your metabolism to stabilizing your blood sugar and preventing heart disease.
Research continues to reveal more and more potential benefits of spirulina, and studies show that adding spirulina to your routine can help detoxify your body, increase energy levels, and even improve brain function.

Spirulina is probably the most nutrient-rich food on the planet. That is why taking dietary supplements with spirulina is essential for good health.
Although there is no standard dose of spirulina, most studies have found a beneficial effect when consuming 1-8 grams per day.
Taking even large amounts of spirulina cannot cause serious harm, but can lead to digestive problems such as nausea, diarrhea, bloating and cramps.
There are many different recommendations on when and how you should take spirulina, but it will probably be equally useful, whether you decide to take it before, during or after a meal.
We recommend taking 1 capsule 1-2 times a day with food.
