Spirulina is packed with nutrients and health benefits. It is about 60% complete protein, containing all essential amino acids, GLA, ALA, LA, EPA, DHA, vitamins*, chlorophyll, and more. It includes many B-group vitamins which are usually missing from vegetarian and especially, vegan diets. Spirulina is also a source of calcium, potassium and many other minerals. Many vegetarians take spirulina as a supplement to boost their iron levels. You can also use this super food simply to make sure you are getting enough nutrients from your daily diet, especially if your diet is not healthy and balanced (and most people’s diets today are not ideally balanced). If you are under a lot of stress, you may benefit from the extra minerals and B vitamins in the superfood spirulina.
Although Chlorella usually gets most of the detox publicity due to its hard cell wall, Spirulina can also be included as part of any detox program to boost the elimination of toxins from the body and to give you lots of nutrients while you are cleansing the body. Many people take it daily to keep their bodies clean of toxins and to make sure their digestion and elimination works well. It is often used for this purpose together with other micro-algae, such as chlorella which can help remove heavy metals. Heavy metals that can contaminate the body include mercury from contaminated fish and from dental amalgam fillings, arsenic and cadmium from drinking water, and many other pollutants from industrial waste and general pollution. As these metals end up in the body, they can cause symptoms such as headaches, fatigue and other health problems. They can also contribute to serious illnesses such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease. Spirulina and chlorella together can release these toxins from the body's cells into the bloodstream, and then purge them out of the body with the normal elimination process. The main detoxifying substance in spirulina is chlorophyll, a powerful blood cleanser.
Spirulina also contains probiotic bacteria that can help to keep the digestive system healthy, to protect it from a variety of problems, and to make sure the digestion functions well. Probiotics boost the amount of healthy bacteria in the digestive system, and this healthy bacteria is needed to keep the digestion balanced. It can also help if you suffer from problems such as constipation, as spirulina helps to stimulate digestion and elimination.

** To our international customers: In case you've ever wondered why we offer different sales amounts for USA vs other countries: We ship from the USA and shipping to other countries can run as high as $100 depending on order size and distance traveled, as we must use a reliable and traceable shipping method. Because our current policy is that we either partially or fully subsidize shipping costs on our orders as an added benefit to our customers, we are unable to offer quite as much of a discount to our international customers for this reason. We do appreciate you and the opportunity to be part of your health care goals.
