The World's Purest Source of Spirulina
We offer the purest source of organic spirulina in the world. Its purity and quality are 3rd-party validated by every significant quality and organic certification. This source of spirulina is USDA, EcoCert, and Naturland certified organic. It is also Halal certified, and USP verified.
Our spirulina source is 3rd-party tested by IMO for over 130+ possible contaminants, including heavy metals, yeast, mold, E. Coli, BMAA, Microcystin, Pheophorbide, irradiation, chemical treatment, GMOs, solvents, binders, soy, and gelatin. Throughout the entire farming process, our spirulina is continually tested and monitored for toxins and contaminants.
3rd-Party Nutrient Analysis of Our Spirulina
Note: This data was produced by a 3rd-party accredited lab. Detailed lab documentation will happily be provided by request.
Raw and Clean Certification of Bio-Available & Bio-Active Nutrients
Raw foods have more bio-available and bio-active nutrients. Essentially, the nutrients are still in their “living” form. Raw foods are so beneficial because the body takes in “living” nutrients better, and the food still maintains its “living energy.” The Raw and Clean certifications were created to establish a certification for these types of foods to identify them easier. The certifications measure the bio-availability of the nutrients as a means of verifying the nutrients are still active.
100% Vegan Farming Process & The World’s Most Rigid Organic Certification
The German Naturland Organic Certification is the most stringent in the world. It requires a 100% vegan and sustainable farming process. This means only plant-based ingredients and fertilizers can be used throughout the entire farming process. No other source of spirulina has eliminated the use of animal or chemical-based fertilizers during farming.
Our blue-green algae source is grown in the remote countryside of South India away from all industrial, agricultural, and human settlements that are responsible for contaminating and polluting crops. The farm spreads over 130 acres with a clean source of groundwater and the conducive environment of 86°F to 102°F (30°C to 39°C) temperatures, low rainfall, low humidity, and abundant sunlight throughout the year that provides a thriving atmosphere for optimal growth.
Lowest PAHS & Benzophyrene LevelsThe “Other” Deadly Environmental Toxins
These deadly toxins are similar to heavy metals, shown to contribute to cancer, liver & kidney damage, inflammation, and more. They are industrial toxins in the air from things that burn.
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (or PAHs) are environmental contaminants caused by various forms of industry and pollution, which are known to cause cancer and negatively affect the eyes, kidneys, and liver.
Our 3rd party PAH testing shows our Spirulina is far below Naturland’s stringent standards of PAH levels. Naturland, in fact, has the strictest standards in the world. Our Spirulina was also tested against all other major brands for PAH levels. The data from the results can be seen below.
Full Body Nourishment*
Spirulina is considered the most nutrient-dense food on the planet. Containing over 100 various nutrients ranging from amino acids, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals, and essential fatty acids. One daily serving provides a wide array of nutrients needed for overall health.*
Detoxify the Body, Ward Off Candida*
Spirulina has been shown to aid the body in detoxifying heavy metals and is an effective antimicrobial agent, specifically effective against candida, promoting healthy flora in the intestine, which inhibits candida from thriving.*
Supports Heart Health, Lower Blood Pressure & Cholesterol*
Phycocyanin in spirulina possesses antihypertensive effects, which means it lowers blood pressure. Various studies have also exhibited Spirulina’s ability to lower LDL cholesterol within the body, improve serum triglycerides, and total cholesterol levels.*
Boost Energy Levels*
Spirulina often touted for its energy-boosting properties, is directly tied to its nearly perfect amino acid profile by delivering essential amino acids. These amino acids are vital for repairing worn-down muscles and producing neurotransmitters needed for brain function and activity.*
Improve Brain Function & Health*
In animal studies, spirulina has shown the ability to improve memory. In one study, it was found that Spirulina “prevents the loss of memory possibly by lessening Aβ protein accumulation, reducing oxidative damage and mainly augmenting the catalase activity.” Its broad amino acid profile also provides the body the building blocks for neurotransmitter production.*
Boosts immune Function*
Spirulina supports both the innate and adaptive immune system within the body. It is shown to promote Natural T-Killer Cells and T & B cells of the adaptive immune system.*

Suggested UseAs a dietary supplement, take four (4) tablets daily with or without meal.
Other IngredientsCertified Organic Spirulina (arthrospira platensis), Silicon Dioxide
We recommend 2 tablets per day for the spirulina tablets for ages 4 – 12, 4 tablets (standard serving) per day for ages 12 and older. We recommend not giving it to children under 4-years-old because tablets can be a choking hazard.
We recommend 1 gram per day for the spirulina powder for ages 2 – 12, and 3 grams per day for ages 12 and older (standard adult serving size).
Yes, the product is 100% non-GMO, and we only use organic, and GMP certified facilities to handle and produce our spirulina and chlorella.
Our spirulina and chlorella do not contain any cyanotoxins. It is tested extensively for all algae toxins and environmental contaminants such as microcystins, heavy metals, and PAHs. Unlike other blue-green algae used in health supplements, our spirulina is not grown in natural lakes. It is grown in a 100% controlled environment, enabling us to eliminate all toxins and contaminants commonly found in wild-grown blue-green algae. We continually test and monitor the health of our spirulina throughout every phase of the cultivation process.
Spirulina contains naturally occurring low levels of iodine. Its content is not as high as other algae species such a Kelp, which is saltwater-based algae with high iodine content.
Yes, it is tested for such radiation. Unlike Spirulinas grown in Hawaii and even California, you will not have to worry about potential radioactive contamination in our Spirulina. The Gulfstream in the Pacific pulls the radioactive contaminants out into and across the Pacific. India is located over 6000 km east of Japan, and no environmental force would ever pull the radioactive material in that direction.
The best absorption method would be to take the tablets with food right before a meal. The digestive enzymes produced during digestion will improve the breakdown and nutrient assimilation. If you're on the go, it is also effective to take all 4 tablets with a full glass of water.
Both spirulina and chlorella are 100% soy and gluten-free, 100% organic, and zero other additives or ingredients.
Neither are freeze-dried. We use a patented spray drying process that maintains low temperatures, preserving the products' raw bioactive components.

You are not taking too much. Ideally, you would want to take 4 tablets of each per day. The nausea is rare, but here are some recommendations that may help.
First, possibly split up the serving to 2 servings per day; 2 spirulina and 2 chlorella tablets. Make sure to take both servings with food. Your gut may be having difficulty with digestion, and if that's the case, taking the tablets with food may help with the digestion. When you eat a meal, your body produces a high number of digestive enzymes. You may need additional digestive help. Also, are you taking probiotics? Probiotics are very beneficial for gut health to help the body with nutrient assimilation. If your gut bacteria is low, it may be difficult for your body to absorb and assimilate all of the nutrients.
If the issue persists, consider reducing your serving to 2 tablets of each per day. The following week increase to 3 and the next week back up to 4. But first, try taking it with larger meals.
The body is never fully detoxified as it is continually coming in contact with external toxins from things like cleaning supplies or even heavy metals that are prevalent in produce. Both spirulina and chlorella are beneficial for continual detoxification. If you want to do a large-scale flush, consider a full detox. During full detoxes, the body does a purge, and the body needs to get in the purge state to really expel large amounts of toxins. The spirulina and chlorella are fantastic to take during this process because they will assist the body in continuously expelling toxins. It is recommended to do a full detox every 6 months to purge the body of large amounts of toxins, and then every day after that, continually take actions to expel toxins you come in contact with daily. The daily maintenance is where spirulina and chlorella come in.
Both spirulina and chlorella are very beneficial to your long-term health. As a cancer survivor, we recommend keeping spirulina and chlorella in your diet for the rest of your life. Spirulina, in particular, raises both the content and activity of "natural killer cells," which are the cells in the body that target and destroy tumors or cancer cells. Chlorella improves the health of the cells and DNA, which are beneficial for cancer prevention.
The iron content in our spirulina tablets is 2 mcg. It is lower in our spirulina than others on the market because we use plant-based fertilizers. Most other spirulina has very high levels because it is in the fertilizers. The iron content in our spirulina is not only low, but it's also natural. It is balanced out with the other naturally occurring minerals and vitamins. Ours is much lower in comparison to other brands
They are identical in terms of the nutritional composition. The tablets are simply the same spirulina powder cold-pressed into tablet form. The tablets are often preferred by customers who don't care for the taste of spirulina powder.
Yes, that's a great question. In terms of protein by volume, spirulina has 375% more protein than tofu. It is also a complete protein in regards to its amino acid profile. Spirulina contains all 8 essential amino acids and a majority of the non-essential amino acids. Many vegetarians take spirulina as a protein source because it provides the full spectrum of amino acids, which are hard to get on a strict vegetarian diet. Getting all essential amino acids is crucial for overall product volume consumption because each amino acid plays a specific role and function in the body. It is vital to have adequate amounts of protein, but it is also essential to get the full spectrum of amino acids.
The tablets' serving has only 1.5 grams protein because it is a low volume-by-weight you are taking. It does not meet your protein caloric intake needs. Protein is a macro-nutrient needed for overall calorie intake... fuel for the body.
We recommend only looking at spirulina as a protein source if you are a vegan or vegetarian, and missing the amino acids in your diet due to lack of meat and dairy consumption. It will not provide the protein volume you need for caloric intake as a protein source alone.
The vitamin K content in spirulina and chlorella or other species of micro-algae is not very significant. Cruciferous vegetables and grasses, such as wheatgrass and barley grass, have significant vitamin K levels. If you are looking for a supplement with vitamin K, we offer organic wheatgrass juice powder and barley grass juice powder, both of which have very high vitamin K levels.
Spirulina and chlorella both compliment each other very well, and it is beneficial to take both. They are two different species of algae, so their nutrient content and various health properties differ. It is similar to the importance of eating both spinach and kale. Spirulina is more nutrient-dense. We often consider it mother nature's vitamin, whereas chlorella is extremely good for detoxification and cellular health. Both have similar benefits such as cardiovascular health, anti-aging, etc... But taking both in no way is overkill. They complement each other.
Yes, it can, and it is shown to be very beneficial to their health. For smaller breeds, give them 2 tablets per day. For larger breeds, give them 4 tablets per day. If you purchase the powder form, for smaller breeds, give them 1 g per day. For larger breeds, give them 2 g per day. Your veterinarian may provide different serving recommendations based on your dog's health needs.
