Why is spirulina so beneficial to human health?
It is a living fossil, one of our planet’s very first forms of life, dating back to the Archean Eon of 3.5 billion years ago. As Earth’s first photosynthetic organism, it literally gave rise to the life we see around us each day – including ourselves. Being the planet’s original food source, it is no wonder it is the perfect food for humans, widely considered the most nutrient-dense food on the planet.
Never buy powdered spirulina again!
Spirulina is among the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet when consumed raw and living. The drying and dehydrating process destroys much of spirulina’s health benefits. Exposure to 200 degree temperatures during the dehydrating process far exceeds what is necessary to destroy all enzymes and reduce other components by as much as 90%.
It turns out that the climate for California avocados is excellent for growing Spirulina. We are at about 500 ft. elevation and 10 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. This allows our farm to produce an abundant crop year round. We yield approximately 500,000 lb./acre per year. By comparison apples produce 24,000 lb./acre per year. Our culture water recycled and therefore our farm uses very little water for cleaning, rinsing and cooling.
