Product details

A great addition to healthy homemade smoothies, snacks and bakes. The three main benefits of our Organic Spirulina Powder are:

1. FULL OF NUTRIENTS

A single tablespoon (7 grams) of dried spirulina powder contains:

Protein: 4 grams

Vitamin B1 (thiamine): 11% of the RDA

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin): 15% of the RDA

Vitamin B3 (niacin): 4% of the RDA

The quality of the protein in spirulina is considered excellent - comparable to eggs. It gives all the essential amino acids that you need.

2. POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT

Spirulina is a fantastic source of antioxidants, which can protect against oxidative damage. Its main active component is called phycocyanin. This antioxidant substance also gives spirulina its unique blue-green colour.

3. LOWERS CHOLESTEROL

Spirulina can lower total cholesterol, 'bad' LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, while raising 'good' HDL cholesterol. In a study of 25 people with type 2 diabetes, 2 grams of spirulina per day significantly improved these markers. Another study in people with high cholesterol determined that 1 gram of spirulina per day lowered triglycerides by 16% and 'bad' LDL by 10%
