Spirulina powder is obtained from a free-floating aquatic organism commonly referred to as a blue-green algae, although it’s actually a type of cyanobacteria. This simply means that it manufactures energy using photosynthesis just like plants, despite being blue in color. As a rich source of fatty acids, minerals, vitamins and various oxidants, spirulina powder is added directly to foods or is encapsulated as a dietary supplement.
Spirulina serves as an incredibly rich source of iron, at least four times the amount found in normal foods. Other vitamins and minerals in spirulina include Vitamin A, beta-carotene, B Vitamins, zinc, selenium, magnesium and phosphorus – all essential for optimal health.
