The benefits of Spirulina
Spirulina is a blue-green algae growing in warm waters in subtropical and tropical areas across the world.
It belongs to a family of microalgae, which contributed to the emergence of life on Earth and has existed on our planet for around three billion years!
Spirulina is rich in protein, polysaccharides, vitamins (especially Vitamin B12) and provitamin A (β-carotene), minerals, and essential fatty acids. What’s more, it is high in antioxidant and has a range of beneficial properties.
Thanks to its excellent nutritional profile, Spirulina contributes towards good health in humans as well as animals (including pets like dogs and cats). It provides numerous benefits, and the most compelling one is its ability to help support the immune system.
Spirulina has been part of the human diet for some time and has always contributed towards good health.
