As a ‘super food’, spirulina has an incredible variety of benefits. Spirulina is made up of cyanobacteria which are complete organisms and thus display a comprehensive nutritional profile. Spirulina has the apparent ability to stimulate whole human physiology. Given these attributes, spirulina has been investigated for its utility as a cultivated food on extended space missions.
– Why not organic? The water in which spirulina is cultivated is crucial to its safety and nutritional value. Heavy metals in water get absorbed and concentrated in organisms such as spirulina leading to health risks. While governments regulate levels of toxic materials in consumables (e.g. California’s prop 65) to protect the public, this can be easily circumvented by simply reducing the serving size. Only through non-organic spirulina have we been able to maintain the expected 500 mg tablet while upholding the high standards of prop 65 for low heavy metal content.
