Gram for gram, spirulina could be the most nutritious and well-rounded food on the planet, which stores almost indefinitely. – Gabriel Cousens 

Spirulina is one of the oldest life forms on Earth and has been consumed for centuries. This blue-green microalgae is also one of the most potent nutrient sources available and is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins and other nutrients. It’s high in (dairy-free) calcium with over 26 times the calcium in milk, and can bind with heavy metals in the body and help remove them. This superfood is highly digestible, protects the immune system, aids in mineral absorption and reduces cholesterol.
