What is Spirulina?

Spirulina is a microscopic fresh water blue-green algae. It grows naturally in the tropical lakes of Asia, Africa & Central America and it is cultivated in Cuba. Spirulina platensis, the most widely grown species is considered to be one of the world’s few “super foods”. It is high in protein, contains all the eight essential amino acids required by man and is nature’s richest whole food source of Vitamin E, Beta Carotene, antioxidants, Gamma Linolenic acid (GLA) and chlorophyll.

Spirel Spirulina Production
Spirel Spirulina is grown in a tropical micro-climate in Cuba. It is grown in a controlled environment, free from pesticides and pollutants and with record hours of sunshine. The technology used in the production of Spirel Spirulina has been developed and improved over many years with the assistance of some of the world's most recognised scientists and experts in Spirulina production. Production is in purpose built reservoirs using spring fresh water and where continuous stirring by paddle wheels assures perfect exposure to the intense Cuban sun.

Why Cultivate Spirulina?
Spirulina is high in protein, consistently more than 65% - higher than any other food. Its rapid growth means it yields over 200 times more protein per hectare than beef and even 20 times more than soya beans. It requires less water per kilo of protein produced than other foods and when the water is recycled, as it is with Spirel Spirulina it makes for a very efficient system. It requires less energy input per kilo than most other crops and fixes more carbon dioxide than any land plant.

Quality Control
Spirel Spirulina is grown in strictly monitored reservoirs and is harvested daily. Drying takes place in purpose built chambers at low temperatures to ensure full nutritional value and maximum potency. Each day’s production is given a unique batch number. Each batch is rigorously tested for fungal and bacterial contamination and heavy metals. Only after a safe bill of health is received is each batch sent for packing as Spirel Spirulina.

Unique Tableting Method
Spirel Spirulina tablets are the purest in the world. No binders, fillers or tabletting aids are used. Spirel Spirulina tablets, powder and capsules are 100% natural Spirulina platensis. Spirel Gold and Spirel G are produced in the same way without binders or fillers.
