What is Spirulina?
Dec 03, 2018

Spirulina is known as a nutrient-dense food as it is packed full of vitamins, including vitamins A, C, E and B vitamins, as well as a whole host of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc and selenium.

In particular, vitamin C and selenium are both antioxidants and help protect our cells and tissues from damage.

This algae is also an excellent vegan source of iron, providing 1.4mg per 5g teaspoon which is about 16% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for men over 18 years and women over 50 years, and 10% for RDA for women aged 19-49 years old.

Spirulina is also high in protein (above 60%), with just 1 tsp (5g) providing almost 3g of protein per serving.
