OVERVIEW:

Spirulina is a free-floating aquatic plant commonly referred to as blue-green algae, although this "superfood" is actually a type of cyanobacteria. Spirulina has an intense fish-like flavor and the powder is added directly to foods such as yogurt, fruit and vegetables, smoothies and soups. Dietary spirulina is arguably the most nutrient-dense food on the planet.

 

The plant's chemical makeup is 65% amino acids making it a popular nutritional supplement for those who are unable to obtain sufficient calories and protein through diet alone, particularly athletes who burn calories at a high rate. Spirulina is also a rich source of numerous other nutrients, including protein, various oxidants, and many essential vitamins and minerals. A single teaspoon of spirulina contains more B12 than liver.
