Spirulina is a superlative source of phytonutrients, the same kinds of nutrients you'd get by eating leafy green vegetables, IF you ate a lot of leafy green vegetables; chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Since most people don't eat enough greens, products like NOW's spirulina powder are a huge help by letting you add small amounts of spirulina to shakes and other foods, thereby putting back into your diet some of the nutrients you're missing. Some people feel that greens supplements like spirulina also support health by alkalizing body chemistry, with a favorable effect on many body systems. NOW Spirulina powder mixes very well with apple and grape juices, but less so with dairy and highly acidic or tart juices.
Spirulina has the highest protein and beta-carotene levels of all green superfoods and also has naturally occurring GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid), a popular fatty acid with numerous health benefits. In addition, it is the highest known vegetable source of B-12 and has naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, trace elements, cell salts, amino acids and enzymes.
