Spirulina powder is obtained from a free-floating aquatic organism commonly referred to as a blue-green algae, although it’s actually a type of cyanobacteria. This simply means that it manufactures energy using photosynthesis just like plants, despite being blue in color. As a rich source of fatty acids, minerals, vitamins and various oxidants, spirulina powder is added directly to foods or is encapsulated as a dietary supplement.
Spirulina powder is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. Spirulina contains all of the essential fatty acids necessary for the body to function. This is what is called a complete protein. It is an excellent addition to a vegetarian diet because it provides so much of the essential protein.
