THE BEST SPIRULINA IN THE WORLD?

Auroville Spirulina is grown without pesticides, herbicides or GMOs and it is sun dried naturally. Most Spirulinas are spray dried but by sun drying it we preserve the vital natural energy contained in the Spirulina.

You can really taste the difference in this natural Spirulina… finally a Spirulina that doesn’t taste horrible!

WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?

In 1968, delegates from 124 nations came together on a bare piece of earth in Tamil Nadu, India in order to create a place that belonged to all people, a place without borders – a place where it doesn’t matter your creed or colour or background. This place is called “Auroville”.

Auroville was created with a 4 point charter at it’s core:

  • Auroville belongs to nobody in particular. Auroville belongs to humanity as a whole. But to live in Auroville, one must be the willing servitor of the Divine Consciousness.
  • Auroville will be the place of an unending education, of constant progress, and a youth that never ages.
  • Auroville wants to be the bridge between the past and the future. Taking advantage of all discoveries from without and from within, Auroville will boldly spring towards future realisations.
  • Auroville will be a site of material and spiritual researches for a living embodiment of an actual Human Unity.

Our Spirulina is grown with love in Auroville.

THE PROCESS THAT MAKES THE DIFFERENCE

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.

IS IT ORGANIC?

Although we do not use any herbicides, pesticides, or GMOs, our spirulina is not organic certified. Please note that the most prestigious spirulina farm worldwide in the USA and Hawaii are also not organic certified, while spirulina coming mainly from China is organic certified.

The main issue is nitrate, an essential nutrient that has to be added to the growing medium. When nitrates are heated to high temperatures they can turn into nitrites which have recently been found to be carciogenic.  After harvesting the spirulina is washed with (salted water) and all the minerals and salts from the growing medium (including the nitrate) are washed out.

What are Nitrates? Nitrates are compounds consisting of Nitrogen and oxygen atoms. Most nitrates in your diet are naturally occurring, coming mostly from vegetables.

The adding of nitrates means the Spirulina can not be classified as Certified Organic, in all other aspects of the cultivation, it would meet the requirements for organic certification.

REDUCES BAD CHOLESTEROL

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).

In one study 15 male volunteers were given 4.2 grams of Spirulina per day. Researchers concluded that not only had the bad cholesterol reduced “significantly” but the fat in the arteries of the volunteers’ had also decreased.

In a second study the volunteers were given 4 grams of Spirulina per day. The researchers concluded that not only had the bad cholesterol reduced but also a number of other indicators of heart issues had also reduced (blood cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and VLDL cholesterol). They also found that the good cholesterol increased over the same period and the volunteers lost excess weight.

60% EASY TO DIGEST PROTEIN

Our Spirulina is packed with easily-digestible vegetable protein and contains all the essential amino acids. The essential amino acids are known as ‘essential’ because we must have them in our diet as the body cannot produce them itself.

As Spirulina has no cellulose in its cell walls it is easily digested and assimilated by the body. It is also not a meat product so you avoid the cholesterol that comes with meat proteins.

NATURAL BETA-CAROTENE (PROVITAMIN A)

Spirulina is the richest source of natural beta carotene, ten times more concentrated than in carrots. Beta carotene is a very important antioxidant which has been shown to keep your skin healthy and it plays a vital role in eye health.

GAMMA-LINOLENIC ACID (GLA)

There is a rare essential fatty acid that is generally only found in Mother’s Milk known as GLA. GLA is important for the creation of hormones that control many functions in your body and it helps your body deal with inflammation and skin conditions.

NATURALLY HIGH IN IRON

Iron is essential to build a strong immune system, and yet iron deficiency is the most common mineral deficiency. Studies show that the iron in spirulina is absorbed 60% more efficiently than from iron supplements.

PACKED WITH CHLOROPHYLL

Spirulina contains 1% chlorophyll, among the highest levels found anywhere in nature. Chlorophyll is believed to be a cleansing and detoxifying nutrient.

This potent combination of over seven amazing super foods not only provides energy when you need it most, it contains an abundance of antioxidants, vitamins, nutrients and powerful detox properties.  The mix includes:

HOW TO CONSUME

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.

    The powder

  2. Sparkles

    Great

    Spirulina doesn’t taste great however mixed with wheatgrass it’s drinkable. HIgh quality product. The wellness I feel since I started drinking the duo is amazing (2-3 wks). Price is good and the delivery time is second to none. Overall Forest Super Foods has won me over

  3. Bon

    Good product

    Worked well for awhile. Maybe I need to up the dose or try and combo powder instead. Certainly gave me a boost for awhile. Have only been taking one spoonful a day. Feel now I need something stronger.

  4. Alex

    too expansive

    This seller used to sell Spirulina for $40 per kilo. Than the price was jumped for some reason. I will look for other supplier

  5. Deb

    Great product

    I have used a couple of the products and can highly recommend. Great price, flavours are very subtle and certainly have one my stamp of approval. I have tried many spiralina and this tops them all. Great job guys.

  6. Jula Mallaby
