Blue-green superfood algae.
Organika Certified Organic Spirulina is a pure source of blue-green algae that comes in powder form. The finely-milled organic power can be added to smoothies, mixed with lemonade or blended with almond milk. It can also be used in baking.
Spirulina is an edible, one-celled form of blue-green algae that’s been growing on earth for over 3.5 billion years. It has been enjoyed as a dietary supplement around the globe for centuries and was traditionally incorporated into Mexican menus during the Aztec civilization.
Considered to be a complete food, spirulina is grown in alkaline water and is commonly cultivated and harvested from open-air, freshwater pools. Because it is so easy to grow and harvest, it is considered an extremely sustainable food source.
Spirulina is one of the highest plant-based proteins per serving in the world, with a very high concentration of bio-available iron. It’s also a source of all essential amino acids.
Spirulina is known for helping reduce symptoms of allergic rhinitis. It also contains beta-carotene, which helps support eye health and night vision. Its high chlorophyll content means it’s a powerful detoxifier. It’s also full of vitamins, minerals, and enzymes.
Since it is so rich in iron and protein, spirulina aids in red blood cell production and muscle repair within the body. The high protein content can also help stabilize blood sugar when taken between meals and, because it’s packed full of essential fatty acids, spirulina can help regulate cholesterol levels as well.
Natural health practitioners recommend spirulina for a variety of conditions including convalescence, hypoglycemia, high cholesterol, chemical or metal toxicity, cancer, malnutrition and malabsorption.
Organika’s Spirulina is consistently examined for the highest purity and quality to meet our standards. Grown in a region in Mongolia, the air in this area is some of most pristine in the world. The location is unique because it’s safe from pesticides, uses overhead protection to stop bacteria and debris from getting into pools and is free from heavy metals. The product is extracted from deep pools of water nearly 400m below the ground. This insures that the algae being extracted is uncontaminated, as other sources have been known to carry heavy metals. The product is produced in an attached ISO certified, HACCP certified, Kosher certified, organic certified, CMP facility. Our testing is done to ensure we not only meet but exceed Health Canada standards. Our algal toxin testing includes microcystins, BMAA, benzopyrene, pesticides and aflatoxins.
For added allergy relief, we recommend combining Organika’s Spirulina with our Quercetin w/Bromelain or Bee Propolis.
