Spirulina (Arthrospira platensis) rests atop the green superfood pantheon.  This blue-green vegetable plankton has been a source of nutrition for humans since the Aztecs harvested it centuries ago.  Spirulina very well may have been the first photosynthetic life form created, and it still contains the rich nutrient content that supports the diversity of life we have on Earth today.

Spirulina contains the highest protein and beta-carotene levels of all green superfoods, and is also a rich source of GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid), a popular fatty acid with numerouse health benefits.  In addition, it is the highest known vegetable source of B-12 and provides optimum levels of vitamins, minerals, trace elements, cell salts, amino acids and enzymes. For vegetarians, spirulina is 65-70 percent complete protein compared to beef, at 22 percent, and lentils, which is about 26 percent. Spirulina is the highest source of B-12 as well.

Spirulina is green in nature, and hence it contains a significant amount of phycocyanin and chlorophyll, the latter absorbs energy from the sun to manufacture carbohtdrates which boosts your energy. Spirulina is a powerful antioxidant, and due to it's highly nutitious profile, many people that consume it are able to lose weight. One of the most vital spirulina benefits, which were proven by research, is that it can aid in fighting cancer and any viral illnesses. It is also been shown to enhance a person’s immune system, and help in increasing the libido level of individuals.

Another benefit of spirulina, similar to green tea, it is also one of the most natural anti-aging products that can be found. Spirulina also has the capability to strengthen your teeth and your bones as well as improve you eyesight.

Today, these nutrient-rich algae are being used around the world to help treat illness and are being seriously discussed as a sustainable source of food with the potential to end world hunger. Unlike most plants, which need to be cultivated and nurtured, spirulina is a survivor, able to withstand extreme temperature variations and neglect and still thrive.
