- 10 Months ago
Spirulina is a blue-green algae found in alkaline fresh water-bodies. Natives of Africa have been using spirulina as a part of their diet for thousands of years. But it's only in the recent years, spirulina is being promoted as a health supplement in India.
Spirulina is a natural source of protein. It provides about 70% protein (much higher than meat and fish) with all the essential amino acids, the highest from a single, natural source known to man. Along with protein, it's also rich in many of the vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. It's particulalry useful for vegans because it contains vitamin B12.
