The green gold from the lake… the blue green miracle… Mother Nature’s power plant… a gift from God… vitality pure… stored sunlight… – all these buzzwords reveal an inconspicuously tiny, just about 0.3 mm, blue green microscopic alga of the botanical name “Spirulina platensis”. Ever since the re-discovery of this nutrient-rich microscopic alga about 40 years ago, it has continued unabated on the most triumphant march around the world – from Japan to the US all the way to Europe. Today, it has reached some sort of cult status with millions of health-conscious people. For obvious reasons: out of roughly 30 000 species of algae that live on this planet, this spiral-shaped microscopic alga, Spirulina platensis, is perhaps the most unusual natural food ever discovered. Up to now none endosperm, plant or even food product has been found to contain such an extensive range of natural nutrients. In one single softly pressed tablet of spirulina, which we tenderly call “Spirulet”, Mother Nature has joined, believe it or not, 4058 different vital nutrients. Isn’t that amazing?! By the way – spirulina is not sea algae but rather fresh water algae that grows in lakes rich in minerals. Certainly this is why the iodine content of spirulina is extremely low.
