The protein in Spirulina contains all eight essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. It is a highly beneficial substitute for isolated protein powders (especially those of animal origin). Unlike the high uric acid forming protein from animal products that contributes significantly to osteoporosis and can cause kidney stress, Spirulina's protein is gentle on your kidneys and its Pycocyanin has been shown to actually help protect against kidney failure!
Spirulina provides high levels of chlorophyll, and also contains iron (non-toxic in whole plant form), vitamin A (as non toxic beta-carotene), a full spectrum of carotenoids, B-1, B-2, B-6, E and K. In addition, Spirulina provides a vast array of minerals, trace elements, phytonutrients and enzymes. Spirulina also offers beneficial fatty acids such as DHA, GLA and others which have been shown to possess potent anti-viral activity, chlorophyll, and other beneficial pigments. Spirulina is a whole food source of concentrated nutrients that has been used for centuries. The ancient Aztecs thrived on Spirulina from Lake Texcoco in Mexico.
