The Spirulina is grown in shallow ponds in rural India. The ponds are stirred each day to encourage photosynthesis. The water is kept at a high alkalinity to ensure other algaes do not grow in the ponds.
Once the Spirulina is dense, the water is pressed and strained and the Spirulina becomes a paste. It is then dried in the sun. Air drying creates a far more pleasant flavour and aroma to the Spirulina.
The Spirulina is then heat dried to ensure it is safe for human consumption and to bring it to the right humidity level.
Spirulina has been found to assist with the managing of bad cholesterol (LDL). Yet the Spirulina doesn’t appear to reduce the good cholesterol (HDL).
Start with 1/2 teaspoon and gradually increase to 1 teaspoon (5 grams) per day over a two week period. Add to your favourite juice or smoothie for a powerful dose of protein and to enjoy the benefits of this wonderful super food.
