This superfood algae is better than Organic – Maju’s Spirulina is pesticide and herbicide free, but not "organic."
Here’s why: Organic Spirulina is harvested using organic fertilizers intended for soil which typically contain excessive amounts of heavy metals. In addition, Organic Spirulina typically undergoes a potentially dangerous irradiation process.

What is Spirulina?
Spirulina is one of the oldest ancient organisms on Earth. This green superfood is a spiral-shaped microalgae that grows naturally in the wild. It is most often found in warm, freshwater lakes. In the wild, it has a deep blue-green color. Unfortunately, Spirulina found in nature is at risk for absorbing countless toxins or chemicals from the water.
Our Spirulina is grown in isolated tanks, free from any contaminants. It is then 3rd party tested to confirm purity, potency, and that it is free of heavy metals. We feel this is the best and cleanest way to produce this product.
Spirulina contains an enormous amount of Iron and B12 -- it has almost 4,000% more Iron than Spinach! In addition, it is one of the only sources of B12 vitamins in nature. Many people with a typical diet are deficient in B12, which makes Spirulina a great supplement for overall health.*
A Short History:
Historians believe the Aztecs were the first people in history to use Spirulina. They dried the algae into cakes and potentially used it as their primary source of protein. In 1940, explorer Pierre Dangeard published a report on this “nutritious algae” that was being eaten by people living around Lake Chad in Central Africa. About twenty-five years later, botanist Jean Leonard noticed the sale of green cakes in the markets there. He noted about 70% of the food eaten in this area was accompanied by a sauce made from the dried spirulina cakes.
In 1967 spirulina was established as a “wonderful future food source” in the International Association of Applied Microbiology (Sasson, 1997). Today, Spirulina is used as a nutritional supplement in over 77 countries.
