About our Spirulina Manna powder:
THE ORIGINAL GREEN SUPERFOOD: Spirulina is a blue-green microalga abundant in amino acids, chlorophyll, vitamins, and minerals. Spirulina is perhaps the world’s most ancient superfood. It was a staple food source for the Aztecs who harvested it from Lake Texcoco in central Mexico, and it is still harvested today from Lake Chad in west-central Africa. Blue-green algae grows in lakes and inland bodies of water that are warm and alkaline.
VITAL HEALTH BENEFITS: Spirulina naturally contains phycocyanin, a pigment-protein complex that is found only in blue-green algae. Spirulina’s distinctive, natural, blue pigment, phycocyanin – an important light-harvesting pigment antenna protein in cyanobacteria – offers potent antioxidant properties. Spirulina possesses compounds that are potential sources of prebiotics for gut microbe-host interactions.
VEGAN PROTEIN: Considered Nature’s protein powder, spirulina is 60-70% protein and contains all of the essential amino acids, making it the most well-known natural plant source of complete protein (by weight).
