Additionally, it contains a sweeping variety of vitamins, and is rich in protein and amino acids, wielding a higher protein percentage than most meat, vegetables, and tofu. This makes is especially helpful for vegans and vegetarians trying to round out their nutrient intake.
Spirulina helps clean the atmosphere by converting CO2 into oxygen. Its fully organic cultivation does not harm local forests, groundwater, or air quality. It preserves water and arable land for other crops because it takes less resources to grow. This limits water consumption and soil erosion, reducing your ecofootprint one meal at a time. Spirulina is clean food for a clean conscience!
