Why We Love it
Spirulina is an exceptional food and an incredible source of concentrated, non-toxic, absorbable nutrients. It is a highly beneficial substitute for protein powders. The protein in spirulina contains all eight essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. Spirulina (a blue green algae) also contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, E, and K.
In addition, spirulina provides minerals, trace minerals, cell salts, phytonutrients and enzymes, as well as an abundance of chlorophyll and other beneficial pigments. Raw meat is 27% protein, and even soybeans are 34% protein. Spirulina is 65% complete protein, making it the world's highest known source! Plus, Healthforce's spirulina is dried at low temperatures (enzyme active) versus a heated protein, so protein utilization is maximized. Beware! Proteins from animals form relatively large amounts of uric acid, which can contribute to osteoporosis, gout, arthritis, lack of energy, acid body chemistry, and aging. Animal sources of protein include the flesh from any animal, all dairy products, and eggs. Spirulina, soybeans, tofu, tempeh, lentils, chickpeas (garbanzos) and all other legumes, seeds, and nuts are superior sources of protein. Some protein is contained in all plants!
Spirulina is a water-grown, 100% vegetable plankton. It is a blue green algae that grows in fresh-water lakes throughout the world. The ancient Aztecs thrived on spirulina from Lake Texcoco in Mexico. For the people who live around Lake Chad in Africa, spirulina has been a mainstay in their diet for generations. Spirulina is grown in the United States without the use of pesticides and processed at low temperatures to retain enzymes and other heat-sensitive elements. HealthForce offers spirulina of unsurpassed quality at a more affordable price. Spirulina is so nutritious that it can be used as a totally absorbable, whole food vitamin and mineral supplement.* *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.

Spirulina Manna™ (Arthrospira platensis) is a blue green microalgae abundant in amino acids, chlorophyll, vitamins, and minerals. Spirulina, one of the world’s first superfoods, was a staple food source for the Aztecs who harvested spirulina from Lake Texcoco in central Mexico, and it is still harvested today from Lake Chad in west-central Africa. Blue green algae grows plentiful in lakes and inland bodies of water that are warm and alkaline.
Spirulina Manna™ contains high levels of phycocyanin, a pigment-protein complex that is found only in blue green algae. Spirulina’s high levels of phycocyanin support a healthy inflammatory response, offer potent antioxidant properties, and support kidney health. Considered Nature's protein powder, spirulina is 60–70% protein and contains all of the essential amino acids, making it the world’s highest known source of complete protein. Spirulina has also been shown to encourage and support the growth of healthy bacterial flora in your gut which can help keep candida overgrowth under control.
Spirulina Manna™ is processed at low temperatures to retain enzymes and other heat-sensitive elements.
