The first question we get asked is: "What is Spirulina?"
So here's the story of Spirulina. 3.6 billion years ago micro-algae - like Spirulina - created the oxygen so that other life forms could evolve. Later it naturally grew in tropical regions in high alkaline lakes, such as Lake Texcoco in Mexico. With its distinct blue pigment and a spiral shape, the Aztecs found Spirulina growing in their lakes and used it as a rich nutritional food source. Spanish Conquistadors who entered Mexico later, noticed the Aztecs eating it as food and brought it to Europe. In the 1970s and 80s, after the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations and NASA identified the nutritional benefits of Spirulina - its use spread globally.
With the widespread use of Spirulina, commercial trends have focused on powder and tablet form. While the convenience of it has its perks, the drying process can sacrifice many of the bio-available enzymes, as well as the vital phycocyanin.
Here at SpiruVive, we deliver the same original, natural form the Aztecs first discovered. Packaged in a fresh frozen raw form, SpiruVive Spirulina is able to retain its full complement of beta-carotene, iron, gamma linolenic acid (GLA), selenium, vitamin A, and zinc. Together with phycocyanin’s anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and free radical scavenger properties, SpiruVive is a superb natural alternative food source to manufactured supplements.
But to be part of revitalizing the natural way of things, we couldn't do it without keeping the environment a top priority.
So together, through 7 years of research, SpiruVive has designed and implemented a one-of-a-kind micro-climate system that produces BC grown Spirulina with unparalleled quality, purity, and sustainability.
More than just a product, SpiruVive is a movement that calls for a generation of health conscious men and women to become stewards of their own health; to embrace natural alternatives, and to develop a heart for pursuing environmental sustainability.
If you feel this is a lifestyle you want to lead, we welcome you to our family, and we sincerely hope you enjoy every step in this new life we call SpiruVive.
