Spirulina is an edible, one-celled form of blue-green algae that’s been growing on earth for over 3.5 billion years. It has been enjoyed as a dietary supplement around the globe for centuries and was traditionally incorporated into Mexican menus during the Aztec civilization.
Spirulina as an ingredient is one of the highest plant-based proteins per serving in the world, with a very high concentration of bio-available iron, and a source of all essential amino acids.
It is also known for helping reduce symptoms of allergic rhinitis, and contains beta-carotene, which helps support eye health and night vision. The high naturally occuring chlorophyll content means it’s can also support with natural detoxification.
Since it is so rich in iron and protein, spirulina can also aid in red blood cell production and muscle repair within the body. The high protein content can also help stabilize blood sugar when taken between meals.
Organika’s Spirulina is consistently examined for the highest purity and quality, to ensure we not only meet but exceed Health Canada standards.

Q: Is your product tested heavy metals?
A: Our product is tested for all heavy metals and passes all applicable parameters set by Healthy Canada.
Q: What is the difference between Organic Spirulina and conventional Spirulina powder?
A: Organic spirulina has to be cultivated and processed according to organic standards. The supplier has to set up a quality management system as well as quality control and traceability systems according to organic standards. Conventional spirulina undergoes the same process but the farm and USDA or PACS do not certify the finished product. The conventional product is also subjected to herbicide and pesticide tests. Results of these tests are all within the high standard limits set by health Canada.
