Interesting Fact: Did you know that gram for gram spirulina has 58 times more iron in it that the same weight of spinach? Viewed as being a complete protein, spirulina contains all nine of the essential amino acids needed for growth and repair of the body that it cannot generate itself, spirulina also contains many of the non-essential amino acids.
