Spirulina is a blue micro-algae that appeared on Earth 3.5 billion years ago. Thanks to the process of photosynthesis, it was able to transform an unbreathable atmosphere into a viable environment.
In 1974, the UN declared spirulina to be the food of the future to combat malnutrition

1. SPIRULINA IS NOT A DIRTY ALGAE.
It has nothing to do with the confusion some people make between micro-organisms and microbes. It's a microscopic blue-green algae capable of purifying the atmosphere in which it grows.
Far from urban pollution, Algorigin Spirulina benefits from pure water and an ecosystem unique in the world, in the heart of the Andes Cordillera.
So it has nothing to do with the algae that prevents us from swimming at the beach in summer!
