The Spirulina is Earth's oldest living plant (3.6 billion years ago) and first photosynthetic life form that created our oxygen atmosphere so all life could evolve. Spirulina is the most nutritious, concentrated food known to man containing antioxidants, phytonutrients, probiotics, and nutraceuticals. Spirulina is the best whole food source of protein, betacarotene, GLA, B Vitamins, minerals, chlorophill, sulfolipids, glyco-lipids, super oxide dimustase, phycocyanin, enzymes, RNA, DNA, and supplies many nutrients that are lacking in most people's diets.

United Nations recommends that "Spirulina is the most ideal food for mankind". US Department of Agriculture in October 1988 published "Spirulina: Food For the Future". Spirulina has been consumed by people for centuries and millions of Americans enjoy it, and is available in health food stores and nutrition centers everywhere.
Spirulina is the richest whole food of BetaCarotene (Pro Vitamin A). Spirulina is 25 times richer than raw carrots in beta carotene. BetaCarotene is a natural antioxidants that offers protection against cancer, heart diseases, AIDs virus, bacteria, and enhances immune system. It lowers cholesterol level, recovered Chernobil radiation Victims' health. Three grams of Spirulina provides 180% of the of BetaCarotene needed each day.
Spirulina is the richest whole food source of Vitamin B12. The vitamin B12 in spirulina is 26 times richer than raw beef liver. Vitamin B12 in spirulina provides energy, and is essential for normal growth and neurological function. People also eat it for energy and internal cleansing.
Spirulina is the richest whole food source of vitamin E. It is 3 times richer than raw wheat germ, and it is highly biological active. People eat it so they can eat less food, and may thus help people with obesity.
Spirulina is the richest whole food of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). GLA helps lower blood cholesterol and high blood pressure and eases such conditions as arthritis, premenstrual pain, eczema. The rich minerals in spirulina are essential for healthy skin, bones. Spirulina is the only plant that has GLA. GLA in mother's milk helps the babies health.
Spirulina is the richest whole source of biochelated organic iron which is complete nontoxic and prevents anemia. Iron in spirulina is 58 times richer than that of raw spinach and easy to absorb.
Spirulina is the richest whole food source of protein. The protien in spirulina is twice that of the nearest rival soybeans, and at least 3 times that of beef, fish or eggs. Spirulina has high biological value protein with a superior complete amino acid profile containing all 8 essential amino acids and 10 non-essential amino acids with the correct proportions. It has an unmatched digestibility coefficient of 95.1%. The amino acids in spirulina are delivered in an essentially "free form" state for almost instantaneous assimilation.
Several years ago, the National Cancer Institute announced sulfolipids from blue-green algae like spirulina were remarkably active in test tube experiments against the AIDS virus.
In 1993-95, research showed natural polysaccharides in spirulina increased T-cell counts, strengthened the immune system and raised disease resistance in chickens, fish and mice. The animal feed industry is embracing spirulina as a new pro-biotic to replace overused antiobiotic drugs in animal feeds.
In 1994, a Russian patent was awarded for spirulina as a medicine for reducing allergic reactions from radiation in the Children of Chernobyl.
