What is Spirulina?

Spirulina is a 3.5-billion-year-old superfood full of protein, vitamins and minerals. It grows very fast if cultured in highly alkaline warm water under strong sunlight. Spirulina uses photosynthesis just like plants, meaning it consumes CO2 from the air while producing oxygen. It has a long history of safe human consumption and has been called a food of the future by the UN FAO, NASA and the European Space Agency. Please have a look at the Spirulina Wikipedia page for more detailed information about this amazing superfood.
