Spirulina has an exceptionally high nutritional value. With a protein content of 60-70%, spirulina is one of the richest sources of protein. The antioxidant effect of spirulina is mainly attributed to the presence of the two phycobiliproteins in the algae: phycocyanin and allophycocyanin. Spirulina is a natural source of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B9, B12, C, E and K. As a result, they are easily absorbed by the body. Unique to spirulina is the substance phycocyanin that gives this alga its typical blue-green colour. This powerful antioxidant stimulates the immune system. Finally, the algae is rich in minerals: phosphorus, magnesium, chromium, iron, zinc, potassium, selenium, copper and calcium. Spirulina really contains all the essential nutrients we need.

Why is spirulina good for me?
Is spirulina safe for consumption?
Yes! Spirulina is safe and has a long history of safe use, including early African and Mexican civilizations. For the past 20 years, millions of people around the world have used it as a safe dietary supplement. In addition, the United Nations and the World Health Organization recognize spirulina as safe and particularly nutritious. However, in recent years, there have been large commercial farms that are not as concerned about the quality. They market spirulina contaminated with heavy metals. So carefully choose the spirulina you buy and inquire about its origin. Not all spirulina is of equal quality.
Is spirulina easily digestible?
Yes, spirulina is very easy to digest. It has only one soft cell wall and thus quickly dissolves in our digestive system.
What is Spirulina?
Spirulina belongs to the family of blue-green algae. It is a miniscule little algae that looks spiral-shaped. Hence the name 'spirulina'. Spirulina is already 3.6 billion years old and was the first producer of oxygen on Earth. This algae grows in the mineral-rich alkaline lakes and waters.
This blue-green algae contains phycocyanin, which gives spirulina its blue colour. It is a powerful antioxidant that stimulates the immune system. Spirulina also contains chlorophyll, responsible for the green colour. This green pigment has a particularly high detoxifying effect and protects the liver.
What are sprinkles?
Spirulina sprinkles are the purest form of this incredible microalgae. Sprinkles do not undergo any form of industrial processing - as is the case with powders and pills. Powders and pills are processed in an industrial way. During spray-drying, the spirulina is heated resulting in a loss of nutrients. Fillers are also used with tablets. Thanks to natural growth and our unique drying method at low temperatures, we can supply spirulina of a superior quality.
