Spirulina, a blu-green fresh water algae, contains an astounding array of nutrients. In fact it is so rich in nutrition that it is believed by some that you could live on spirulina alone for quite some time. It consists of 65/70% protein (the highest concentration of protein found in any food), and is a complete protein source which means it contains all 8 essential amino acids. Would you believe it contains as much iron as red meat so its a great add-on for vegeterians. It is very rich in Beta Carotene and Vit B1, B2, B6, E and K. It is an abundant source of Chlorophyll which is a very powerful antioxident and blood purifier. It contains phytonutrients and enzyme and is a powerful tonic for the immune system; in fact the regular consumption of Spirulina in the diet has been proven to consistently improve immune system function. You can buy spirulina in powder form at the organic supermarket in Dubai. It can be added to smoothies, fresh juices, salad dressings and even sprinkled on top of salads. You only need about 5-10g a day to get the health benefits. Try this amazing Guacamole recipe with Spirulina powder:
