Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
Organic Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae found in most lakes and ponds. Our Organic Spirulina is grown in a series of man-made outdoor pools that are closely supervised. Spirulina is a superfood naturally loaded with vitamins A through E, iron, potassium, calcium, and antioxidants. It is considered a complete protein, containing an ideal balance of all 9 essential amino acids. Our Organic Spirulina Powder is non-GMO.
Health Benefits of Organic Spirulina
1) Protein Powerhouse: Organic spirulina powder contains all 9 essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. A one-ounce serving of spirulina contains over 30% of the Daily Value (DV) for protein. Spirulina's protein is 85-95% digestible, a higher percentage than that of even red meat or soy.
2) Antioxidant Boost: Spirulina's antioxidant concentration is four times that of blueberries. Spirulina has an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of over 24,000 - ORAC measures the antioxidant concentration of foods. Antioxidants protect our cells from the damaging oxidative effects of free radicals.
3) Abundance of Minerals: From calcium to potassium to zinc, organic spirulina powder boasts a wide range of minerals. The essential amino acids present in spirulina play a key role in helping our bodies to efficiently use these minerals.
4) Heart Health: A 2007 published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry examined spirulina consumption in the diet of rats and found that the rats were less likely to develop atherosclerosis, a condition associated with the build-up of plaque inside arteries.
5) Lower Diabetes Risk: Spirulina may help manage blood glucose levels in diabetic patients. A 2001 study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food found that patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus who consumed spirulina experienced lower blood glucose levels and cholesterol levels than the control group.
Taste and Uses of SpirulinaOrganic spirulina has a smoky seaweed taste that will blend right in with some of your favorite everyday foods. It only takes one to two teaspoons of spirulina to enrich your diet with an excellent source of protein, vitamins, and minerals. Blend spirulina with other fruits and veggies to make a healthy juice or smoothie. Combine it with avocados for a tasty guacamole dip, mix it into a salad dressing, or sprinkle it on foods for a boost of nutrients. The possibilities are endless when it comes to bestowing your meal with superpowers!

“It had been quite a while since I had placed an order with Nuts online. I was so excited when I found all my smoothie ingredients in one place on your web site and even more excited when my order arrived two days early! Everything is perfect so thank you.”

“This spirulina is amazing!!! I received my order quickly, as always, but didn't try the spirulina for a while as I wasn't excited about the "green" taste. I finally opened my bag today and the only thing I could think was that it smelled like boxed chocolate cake mix. I then made a smoothie with almonds, bananas, maca powder, raw cacoa, a drizzle of agave and a huge helping of spirulina. It was DELICIOUS!!! I can't wait for tomorrow's workout, just so I can make another delicious spirulina smoothie!! This and maca together= a real treat!

“Wow! Talk about impressively speedy and generous! I not only received my order the day before it was scheduled to arrive, but I also received a very generous sample packet of goji berries! Thanks Nutsonline! I know who to come to now! ”

“I could not believe it when I got confirmation that my order had shipped only 3 hours after placing it. But, sure enough, it was delivered to my door today less than 2 days later. It is also packaged very well and makes me believe that if they care this much about customer satisfaction, they care about the quality of the product. I'm happy my wife discovered the company...”

“You folks rock!!! My chlorella, spirulina, and bee pollen has safely arrived today. I was relieved to find a fantastic place such as yours on the interwebs to purchase healthy foods and super foods. I had to check so many other places and none is as quality and well priced as yours! Nuts Online is going to be recommended to all my friends and family! Thanks for making my day with your speedy shipping time:) I most definitely will be ordering again. Definitely going to go for some raw nuts, seeds, goji berries, cacao nibs, mesquite, etc etc next time. My next maca, lucuma, and raw cacao powder will be from you guys as well. Thanks again. Peace and love!”

“I am a 50 year old, female nutritarian, I eat plant based, whole foods that follows the Forks Over Knives philosophy. I am also a Spartan Racer and I use spirulina in my home juiced recovery drink. With the kale, ginger, lemon, green apple, celery, carrots, and cucumber (Joe Cross basic recipe with carrots), I add organic spirulina and organic super greens powder to enable my body to recover the vitamins, minerals, and protein it has used to grow stronger. Because it is not grown in the ocean, I have no fear of the radiation contamination coming from Japan or other dangers. What a great and healthy way to love my body back to good health. And, my doctor loves that I use spirulina as part of my fresh food diet.”
