Finding the Best Source of Spirulina
If you read our article on Spirulina Health Benefits,
you are probably anxious to run out and get some Spirulina. Before
you do, we wanted to go over how to pick the best the Spirulina.
Is All Spirulina The Same?
NO, NO and NO! Spirulina is a living algae and its nutritional makeup will reflect the environment in which it lives. If the Spirulina
lives in pristine waters, it will have an incredible nutritional profile. On the other hand, if the Spirulina lives in water that has heavy
metals and toxins - the Spirulina will contain these as well! To help you pick a quality Spirulina supplement, we have come up with some
questions you ask Spirulina companies.
Is Your Spirulina Certified Organic?
A yes answer here is absolutely essential. The amount of run off of toxins and pesticides from land into the water supply is terrifying!
If the Spirulina you purchase is not certified Organic, you can not be certain that harmful pesticides and heavy metals are kept out of your
Spirulina. Ask to see the Organic Certification on their Spirulina. If a company can not prove they use Certified Organic
Spirulina, this would be a deal breaker for us.
Can You Provide Tests That Show Your Spirulina is Free of Heavy Metals?
When eating anything from the sea, you need to make certain you are not consuming large amounts of toxic heavy metals. A good Spirulina
supplier will test their Spirulina for heavy metals. Ask to see test results proving that their Spirulina is free of heavy metals.
After all, the last thing you want to do is increase the heavy metals in your diet!
Is the Spirulina Fair Trade Certified?
We feel that healthy foods should be good for everyone involved in the production and harvest of the food. There is something wrong about
eating healthy spirulina, while the people who harvested and processed the Spirulina do not make enough money to feed their family.
For this reason, we believe it is important to purchase Fair Trade certified foods whenever they are available. Fair Trade certified means
that all the people who were involved in the production of the food are paid a healthy, living wage.
Ask Where The Spirulina Is Grown?
We firmly believe you have every right to know where all your food is coming from. Spirulina is a food, you might take it in a supplement form,
but it is still a food. Ask your Spirulina supplier where they grow the Spirulina - you deserve to know!
Ask To See the Nutrition Analysis of Their Spirulina?
The actual nutritional content of Spirulina can very greatly based on where it is grown, how it is harvested and how it is processed. Asked
to see testing that shows all the nutrients in the Spirulina. You will be surprised to see the differences in many of the Spirulinas on the market.
Do They Offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee?
Every company should stand behind their product. If a Spirulina manufacturer does not offer a 100% Money Back Guarantee, this would be a
red flag to us.
