Rainforest Foods Organic Spirulina Tablets 300 x 500mg This bottle contains 300 tablets. Each tablet contains 500mg of organic Spirulina powder ( Arthrospira platensis). Product Information - What is Spirulina? Spirulina ( Arthrospira platensis) is a strain of spiral blue-green algae that contains a wide range of nutrients and flourishes in subtropical and tropical waters. Spirulina occurs naturally in South America, where it was harvested from high-altitude lakes by the Aztecs. There is a tradition of harvesting Spirulina in central Africa, and it remains a staple food in several Asian cuisines. Two notable components of Spirulina are the green pigment Chlorophyll and Phycocyanin. Spirulina contains Vitamins A, B3, B12, and E and minerals which include Chromium, Iodine, Iron, Manganese and Phosphorous. Production - How it s made Rainforest Foods Spirulina is produced organically on an island in the South China Sea using photosynthesis, the natural process by which plants absorb energy from sunlight. Batches of algae grow, multiplying naturally and rapidly in pools of pure water. They are harvested when they reach the required density. Once harvested, the Spirulina is dried and milled to powder. The powder is encapsulated in the UK by a leading GMP (Good Marketing Practice)-registered pharmaceutical manufacturer. Rainforest Foods capsule shells are made from HPMC, a plant-based cellulose material, approved for vegetarian and vegan use by the Vegetarian Society, and Halal and Kosher-certified. The capsules are 100% pure, using no fillers, binders or bulking agents. Each capsule contains nothing but 500mg of organic Spirulina powder.
