Origins of Spirulina
Spirulina is a blue-green, single-cell alga that relies on sunlight to grow. The organism is one of the oldest forms of life on Earth, having appeared on the planet more than 3.5 billion years ago. Scientists believe that all terrestrial plants developed from the Spirulina microorganism. Spirulina relies on specific growing conditions including warm, alkaline and mineral-rich water. The microorganism is very hardy and can grow in environments where these favourable conditions are in short supply, such as in the Sinai Dessert where a few drops of water are sufficient to 'awaken' the algae. Because of this, Spirulina can be found in all continents, other than Antarctica
Spirulina is a rich source of protein, a macronutrient that keeps you feeling full for longer, and which contributes to the maintenance of muscle mass and normal bones. Spirulina is also a source of fibre which contributes to a healthy diet.
