SANDERSON Non-GMO Hawaiian Spirulina 1000mg is grown in a Bio Secure area on Kona, Hawaii and verified non-GMO.
It is a rich, natural whole-food multi-supplement in an easy to swallow capsule. Spirulina is a vegan source of protein and vitamin B12 (although a subpar source of B12 which may not be well absorbed), and is quite high in protein as well at around 55-70%.
It is algae, a blue-green mixture of a species of bacteria (Arthospira) that appears to be nutritive and non-toxic as well as easily produced; some studies suggest it has an adverse taste which may be why spirulina capsules or tablets are commonly preferred.
It has a few active components, but the main one is known as phycocyanobilin, which is about 1% of spirulina by weight. This compound has a novel mechanism of action, and mimics the body’s own bilirubin compound to inhibit a pro-oxidative complex called NADPH oxidase. Through inhibiting this complex, spirulina confers potent anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effects.
