Spirulina is a blue-green algae that is a remarkable source of highly bioavailable protein and essential amino acids, and it is also the richest plant source of vitamin B12.
It is a powerful tonic for the immune system. Spirulina is used for detoxification as it helps to bind heavy metals, which the body can then easily excrete. It has been shown to increase the presence of beneficial bacteria by acting as a food for these friendly flora. Spirulina has been recognised for its support with anaemia, cancer, cholesterol, detoxification, malnourishment, immunity and radiation poisoning.
