Spirulina isa type of cyanobacteria that has been growing naturally in our environment for millions of years.
It was a food source for the Aztecs in the 16th century. Later, in the 1960s and 70s, it was rediscovered and studied by a number of researchers. Today this blue-green algae has earned fame as a protein rich superfood with production in several countries. Besides nutritional supplements spirulina is used in cosmetics and even for water purification.

In order to balance out the flavour (it takes some time to get used to it) we recommend combining it with sweet fruits like bananas, pineapple, and mango.
You can also mix it to sweet fruit juices and turn them into a healthy green vitamin drink in an instant.
