If you have read our organic living guide, or much about organic living itself, you know by now of the many health and environmental benefits of eating organic foods. How about eating an organic superfood? Come on, how can it possibly get any better than that - eating a superfood? Spirulina is probably the most popular superfood you'll find. Why? This microalgae has more benefits than we could possibly list here. Feel free to check the bottom of this page for even more info about this superfood. While spirulina comes in many forms, we find that spirulina powder is where its at! We found the best places to purchase certified organic spirulina power and they are just below. How easy is that? The only thing this superfood is missing is a cape!
Spirulina is a super food that has many amazing purposes with health and well-being improvement. Most commonly it is used in a powder form that is mostly added to a fitness and/or well-being smoothie. Its high protein count (about 60%) is accountable for it being a touted a “superfood” and makes it an extremely well sought-after product. You’ve heard it being referred to as the green stuff, green goo, and a handful of other slang terms. Spirulina (however you call it, whatever you use it for, buy it for and refer to it as) is best when it is organic. Isn’t everything? Yes it is.
While we can joke around about how important organic products are, we can tell you that finding truly organic spirulina power can be harder than you think. While all the stores above in our directory carry organic spirulina powder, you’ve probably been to a few sites that sell spirulina powder that is not technically certified as organic. This is because there are strict certification guidelines for cultivating and harvesting spirulina in a true organic fashion. What’s more, many countries that are responsible for the majority of our spirulina importation in the US are under change in product certification requirements. It really all boils down to the fact that you must look for the organic certification when you purchase. No worries, we’ve done all the hard work for you buy creating this Organic Spirulina Powder Directory!
Spirulina is a microalgae. Organic spirulina is a nutritional supplement made from spirulina, it is rich in vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids. Due to its high nutritional value, the ever-present term “superfood” is fitting indeed. Organic spirulina is produced without the use of pesticides or chemicals, and the supplements commonly are available in powder, pill or capsule form. Again, powder is the most popular, hence this directory page.
Spirulina is rare in the sense that is one of only a couple known vegetable foods that contains all eight of the essential amino acids the human body requires in order to produce protein. This makes it a very popular supplement among vegans and vegetarians. Spirulina doesn't just provide protein, vitamins and minerals either. Oh no, this supplement takes well-being to a whole new level by containing phycocyanin, a potent antioxidant that can protect against cancer.
