Spirulina is an exceptional food and an incredible source of concentrated, non-toxic, absorbable nutrients. It is a highly beneficial substitute for protein powders. The protein in Spirulina contains all 8 essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. Spirulina (a blue-green algae), also contains vitamins A, B-1, B-2, B-6, B-12, E, and K. In addition, Spirulina also provides minerals, trace minerals, cell salts, phytonutrients and enzymes, as well as an abundance of chlorophyll & other beneficial pigments.
Raw meat is 27% protein, and even soybeans are 34% protein. Spirulina is 65% complete protein, making it the world's highest known source! Plus, our Spirulina Maxima is dried at low temperatures (enzyme active), so protein utilization is maximized versus a heated protein.
Beware! Proteins from animals forms relatively large amounts of uric acid, which can contribute to osteoporosis, gout, arthritis, lack of energy, acid body chemistry, aging and more! Animal sources of protein include the flesh from any animal, all dairy products and eggs.
Spirulina, soybeans, tofu, tempeh, lentils, chickpeas (garbanzos), all other legumes, seeds, nuts, etc. are superior sources of proteins. Some protein is contained in all plants!
Spirulina is a water-grown, 100% vegetable plankton. It is a blue-green algae that grows in fresh water lakes throughout the world. The ancient Aztecs thrived on Spirulina from Lake Texcoco in Mexico. For the people who live around the lake in Chad, Africa, Spirulina has been a mainstay in their diet for generations.
HealthForce Spirulina is grown in the U.S.A. without the use of pesticides and processed at low temperatures (to retain enzymes and other heat-sensitive elements)
