What is Spirulina?

Spirulina is a blue-green freshwater algae rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Once a staple food source for the Aztecs and Mesoamericans, it’s frequently dubbed a superfood owing to its appreciable nutrient density. 

The benefits of spirulina have been known for some time. In fact, in 1974 the United Nations World Food Conference pronounced spirulina ‘the best food for the future’. These days it’s regarded by many as the most nutrient-dense food on the planet, pound for pound.

Research into spirulina has intensified in recent years, with over 1,000 peer-reviewed articles assessing spirulina benefits. Little wonder the renowned microalgae has become a hit with health-conscious individuals the world over. Spirulina smoothies are particularly popular, although many also supplement with spirulina tablets. 

What Does Spirulina Do? 

Many people understandably wish to know ‘what does spirulina do?’ The more pertinent question to ask, though, is what does spirulina contain? 

The nutrient-rich algae contains: 

• 15 different vitamins and minerals including vitamin E, vitamin C, zinc, potassium, magnesium and calcium

• All 9 essential amino acids

• Over 60% protein (vegetarian protein, naturally)

• Chlorophyll

• Around 26 times more beta-carotene than carrots (per gram)

• 20x more iron than spinach

• Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA) 

Introducing Foodtopia Spirulina

Foodtopia has been distributing high-quality nutritional ingredients since 1997. Their organic spirulina is sourced from rural farms in Inner Mongolia. The well-maintained greenhouse habitat allows for ideal exposure to sunlight and additional protection from environmental contamination. 

Supplied in pouches of 180 500mg tablets, Foodtopia Spirulina is 100% clean and natural. The recommended serving size is 6 tablets per day. 

There is nothing whatsoever added to Foodtopia’s organic spirulina tablets: no binders, fillers, coatings, additives or preservatives. Nothing but healthy, clean, pure spirulina.

Who Should Take Spirulina?  

In our view, everyone can benefit from supplementing with spirulina. Precious few foods contain so many vital nutrients. 

In particular, vegans and vegetarians can benefit from its highly absorbable iron, which is easy on the digestive system. Its high calcium content, meanwhile, makes it an ideal alternative to milk and other dairy products. The high-quality plant protein in spirulina can also help you meet your daily protein targets.
