A bit more about Spirulina

Spirulina is a single-celled organism growing in an ever expanding spiral, which is where the name Spirulina comes from.

Its communities thrive in alkaline environments feeding on the red, yellow, and blue spectrum of the sun’s light, that we just might have hacked with our technolgy.

Spirulina is a plant-based source of all eight essential amino acids as well as ten of the twelve nonessential amino acids, antioxidant beta carotene, minerals such as iron, gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) and more.

Protein: Spirulina is made up of about 65% complete protein – about twice the density of beef or fish. It's full of antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids, and more

Antioxidants: Spirulina is rich in nutrients that cannot be found in other foods, including the brilliant blue pigments and powerful antioxidants: phycocyanin and allophycocyanin.

The Omegas: Spirulina delivers omega-3, omega-6 and Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), which support healthy cholesterol levels, skin and hair vibrancy, hormonal stability and general heart health.

This algae, unlike most plants, is completely digestible. Spirulina dissolves completely, delivering the nutrients directly to your body.

Fresh Spirulina is a potent source of whole, fresh, plant-based nutrients and a delicious part of our everyday meals.

Fresh spirulina, frozen

When we harvest our locally produced spirulina, we make sure to freeze is straight away. This process makes sure we keep all the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants right in there!

Keep it frozen and enjoy the I AM ALGAE cubes whenever you want.
