Scientists have discovered that similar to the energy from the sun, fresh Spirulina is a powerhouse that stores and converts enormous quantities of solar power into precious nutrients. Green chlorophyll, blue phycocyanin and orange carotenoids, the natural pigments that give Spirulina its deep green colour, collect the sun's solar energy, giving us extra vitality and optimum health.
Spirulina contains about 60% (51–71%) protein. It is a complete protein containing all essential amino acids. It is superior to typical plant protein, such as that from legumes.
