Spirulina is a blue-green algae that’s often used as a vegan source of protein and vitamin B12 (It’s between 55-70% protein!). Its main bioactive is C-phycocyanin, a pigment-protein with powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective effects. Strong evidence suggests spirulina is significantly successful at protecting the brain and reducing liver fat, and it’s one of the few ingredients that actually has an entire body of evidence to support its detoxification abilities.
We use ingredients backed by leading scientists, doctors, and nutrition experts. Of the thousands of studies that have guided us so far, here are a few must reads (other than Shakespeare, of course).
