What is Spirulina and Benefits
Lots of customers lately are asking what is spirulina? Well lets dive into this one.
One of the oldest life forms on Earth, spirulina is a blue-green micro-algae that helped produce the oxygen in our atmosphere billions of years ago so that other life forms could appear.
The original ‘superfood,’ spirulina is so nutrient dense that you could survive on it and water alone. It is rich in in Chlorophyll, and like plants, gets its energy from the sun.
Hundreds of studies have confirmed spirulina’s powerhouse status. It has 60-70% complete protein, meaning it has all 8 essential amino acids and 10 non-essential ones that support good health.
That’s more protein than beef, chicken or soybeans.

Although long known to man, green plants, earth’s most ancient foods, have now emerged as the world’s newest nutritional wonders. They hold the power to nourish, protect and heal, the body, and extending lifespan at the same time.
Another benefit of spirulina (wheatgrass and chlorella too) is that it will help decalcify your pineal gland a.k.a third eye by removing metals that are stuck the gland, especially
Its poison. Do not let this get into your body. Mercury tooth fillings are pineal toxins. Have them removed.
All medical vaccines are also mercury tainted. Thimersal (a vaccine preservative) is methyl mercury and is very difficult to get out of the brain once its in there.
Avoid eating fish and bottom feeders such as shrimps and prawns. Tuna and dolphin meat is particularly bad for mercury – the bigger the fish the higher the concentration of mercury in its body tissue.
