Spirulina is a special form of blue-green algae (Earth's most nutritious green super-food) that promotes immune health and provides natural antioxidant protection. It is rich in powerful phytonutrients, such as phycocyanin and total carotenoids, including beta carotene (a precursor to vitamin A). Spirulina also contains all-vegetable protein, GLA essential fatty acid and easy-to-absorb iron. Studies on its benefits (linking the consumption of spirulina to increased immunity, lower cholesterol, decreased allergic reactions and overall neurological health) can be seen at www.research.usf.edu (type spirulina into the search field) or at www. ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/news/spirulina_ study.html.
