Spirulina is an extremely nutrient dense superfood that can easily be incorportated into one's daily diet. Often referred to as "nature's multi-vitamin", this blue/green algae is not only high in vitamins, minerals and omega's 6 and 9, it contains "phycocyanin". It is this phytonutrient that gives Spirulina its blue/green hue and studies have shown it has an exceptionally high antioxidant activity and is powerfully anti-inflammatory. The protein in Spirulina is extremely easy to digest because its cell walls are a very thin complex of natural sugars which practically dissolve upon contact with moisture and digestive enzymes.This means it is absorbed by the body very quickly, without the loss of time and energy incurred in the digestion of ordinary foods.
