Think all spirulina is created equal? Think again. Though spirulina is regarded as a superfood, our Incan spirulina is the shining all-star of these primordial, single-celled blue-green algae plant proteins.
Our Incan spirulina comes from up high in the Ecuadorean Andes at over 9,000 feet and is grown in alkaline water. It’s never processed from Chilean nitrates, unlike other Incan spirulinas.
Just like in hot dogs and other processed meats, nitrates is a nutrition no-no for those who truly want to consume highly bio-available and raw organic superfoods. Yes, as shocking as it is, nitrates are also used in some brands of spirulina. Not ours. Never, ever, ever!
Just because a supposed superfood is grown in South America does not mean that it’s good for you and will increase your longevity. Our Incan spirulina, on the other hand, is cultivated from mineral-rich water and is rich in serotonin. It’s a natural antidepressant!
Another reason why you should purchase Incan spirulina from your local farmer’s market is that every plant-based food has a unique phytonutrient profile. In the case of our organic Incan spirulina, it is rich in at least two classes of antioxidants: zeaxanthin and phycocyanins.
Don’t worry: There will not be a quiz at the end of this, but rest assured both these types of antioxidants contribute to longevity. Consider Incan spirulina like an easy to consume organic herbal tonic, also rich in beta carotene and chlorophyll and B vitamins.
Life evolved from single-celled organisms like blue-green algae. Your life will evolve with Incan spirulina, giving you a natural boost in energy.
