Spirulina blue-green algae are a mixture of single celled organisms that have biochemical and cellular similarities to both plant and animal species. While these organisms have the ability to perform photosynthesis like plants,they lack a cell wall. Like animal species, they form many complex glycoproteins. Spirulina and aphanizomenon are the species that have been studied most intensively. Spirulina consists of approximately 65% crude protein, phenylalanine, iron and other minerals.The iron in spirulina blue-green algae has been found to be highly bioavailable in humans. As much as 1.5-2 mg of iron can be absorbed from a dose of 10 grams of blue-green algae. There is a wide array of evidence demonstrating that spirulina may also have anti-viral and immunity enhancing properties.
