Spirulina is a tiny blue-green algae (Arthrospira Plantensis), in the shape of a perfect spiral coil. Biologically speaking, it is one of the oldest inhabitants of the planet, appearing 3.6 billion years ago. It provided an evolutionary bridge between bacteria and green plants. This water plant has renewed itself for billions of years and has nourished many cultures throughout history, in Africa, in the Middle East and in the Americas.

Spirulina grows naturally in mineral-rich alkaline lakes which can be found on every continent, often near volcanoes. Since its re-discovery in the 1960s, spirulina has been exhaustively and extensively tested by scientists around the world, and is found to be the most powerful and well-balanced source of nutrition available on the planet.

Spirulina is called a super food because its nutrient content is more potent than any other food. Many of the essential nutrients needed by our bodies are concentrated in spirulina. It is comprised of at least 60% all-vegetable protein, essential vitamins and phytonutrients such as the rare essential fatty acid GLA, sulfolipids, glycolipids and polysaccharides.its nutrients are very well assimilated by the body, since it contains no cellulose in its cell walls. Spirulina is a low fat, low calorie, cholesterol-free source of protein containing all the essential amino acids. It helps combat problems like diabetes, anaemia and atmospheric pollution. It also helps combat 'free radicals' which can lead to ailments like cancer, arthritis, cataracts. Moreover, the gama linolic acid (GLA) present in spirulina dissolves fat deposits, helps prevent heart problems and reduces 'bad cholesterol'. As if this wasn't enough, the National Cancer Institute, USA, has additionally announced that sulfolipids in spirulina are remarkably active against the AIDS virus. Regular intake of spirulina increases anti-viral activity, stimulates the immune system, reduces kidney toxicity, improves wound healing and reduces radiation sickness.

In The World Food Conference of 1974, the United Nations lauded spirulina as being possibly “the best food for the future”.

As stated by NASA:"The Nutritional value of 1kg spirulina is equivalent to 1,000kgs of assorted fruits and vegetables".

Grown without the use of herbicides or pesticides or other materials harmful to the environment or humans.

Spirulina is nice to eat as a seasoning on your dishes, salads, dressings, dips & smoothies.

over view Simplicity Spirulina Farmstirring of the spirulina culture

Our Spirulina is grown in the spiritual community of Auroville in India. The farm is situated alongside the Bay of Bengal. It produces high quality spirulina, grown by simple eco-friendly methods. Auroville means City of Dawn. It was founded in 1968 as a place where people of goodwill from all over the world could come together to make a living experiment in human unity and serve a greater dream and greater purpose. It is a site of spiritual and physical research. Presently some 2000 people from 35+ countries and India are gathered in this amazingly creative place, we believe that this is why the Spirulina produced here has an 'extra something special' about it.

We do not 'treat', or aim to 'cure' any disease. Under EU law only a medical doctor may 'treat' illness and disease with a medical origin. The information in this web site is for information purposes only.
