8 Health benefits of Spirulina

The word “spirulina” is a common name, and it relates to a spiral-shaped organism, or cyanobacteria, which owns the name. It develops naturally in freshwater lakes where the water temperature ranges from 20 to 40 °C at an average pH of 9 to 11.

Through an inaccurate name, Spirulina is sometimes regarded as a microalgae. It is also quite often called blue alga, which is due to its high concentration of phycocyanin, which is a blue pigment.
