Spirulina is single celled, cyanobacteria, or better known as blue-green algae. Spirulina contains nearly 60% protein making it a great candidate as a meat-alternative complete protein source. It is also said to be one of the only plant sources to contain B-12, a vital vitamin that most vegetarians lack in their diets. It is rich in healthy lipids such as ALA (omega 3), LA (omega 6), GLA (helps with inflammation) and DHA (primary component of the brain.).

Spirulina also contains vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (nicotinamide), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folic acid), vitamin C, vitamin D, and vitamin E.  It is a source of potassium, calcium, chromium, copper, iodine, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, selenium, sodium and zinc.
