What is Marine Spirulina?
Spirulina is a cyanobacterium that is associated with microalgae as it carries out photosynthesis. It is spiral-shaped and appeared on Earth 3.5 billion years ago.
Thanks to the energy it collects from light this bacteria is capable of transforming carbon dioxide into organic matter using a complex process that produces oxygen.
Traditionally collected on the surface lakes containing brackish water and certain ponds, essentially in tropical zones spirulina is recognised as a concentrate of vitality that can add to our health capital. Spirulina is considered by some scientists as a super food.
The culture of marine spirulina developed thanks to an innovative process introduced by Spiru’Breizh – a company based in Brittany. The process allows to cultivate Spirulina using 100% seawater.
