Spirulina is a type of microalgae which has the ability to produce a high quality of complete protein and essential nutrients more efficiently than most other food sources. One tablespoon of spirulina contains 5-6 grams of bioavailable protein.

Spirulina is also an excellent gut-toxin binder, helping to mitigate the risk of mycotoxins by the method of adsorption. Adsorption is the process by which carbohydrate components of algae cell walls bind to mycotoxins, removing them from the digestive tract before they have a chance to cause serious harm and negatively impact health and performance.

Spirulina is energizing and detoxifying, containing phytonutrients, antioxidants, essential vitamins and minerals, including chlorophyll, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, GLA, iron and the blue-green pigment phycocyanin.

Spirulina has also been widely used in West Africa since the 1970's to treat malnutrition and was also popularized by NASA for the American astronauts.
