What Is Spirulina?

Spirulina, unlike most of our products, does not contain collagen. This doesn’t diminish its nutritional value, however.

Sourced from blue-green algae, spirulina – available in capsule form on – is a superfood that’s packed with vitamin A, vitamin K, iron and other potent phytonutrients. In fact, spirulina contains one of the richest concentrations of nutrients known in any food. To put it into perspective, spirulina contains 25 times more iron than spinach and 16 times more protein when compared on a per gram to gram basis. 

Our Spirulina capsules, which are also Whole30® compliant, can be taken daily with a glass of water or can be deconstructed and added to a latte. Reaping health benefits has never been tastier.

What Are The Benefits Of Spirulina?

Spirulina happens to be one of Vital Proteins’ vegan products, an ideal option for those following a plant-based diet. Not to mention, at 60% protein, spirulina packs a protein-filled punch that is also vegan-friendly. Our Beauty Boost™ capsules – which contain collagen builders vitamin C and biotin – are also vegan. They are considered collagen builders because of these key ingredients, which are needed for the body to naturally produce collagen.

What Is Spirulina Made From?

Made with deconstructed Spirulina capsules sourced from blue-green algae, this vegan latte is packed with good-for-you ingredients like ginger, honey, cinnamon and coconut butter. Merely add the blended ingredients to heated almond milk for a nutrient-rich beverage. 

What Is Blue Green Algae?

Blue green algae (BGA) are a form of cyanobacteria that include species like chlorella and spirulina. Coined the ‘most nutrient-dense food on the planet,’ BGA has been consumed for centuries in many countries around the world.

Another key benefit of BGA is that it acts as a chelating agent in the body to remove toxins like heavy metals**. Think of spirulina working like a magnet. It binds to toxins and may aid the body in their excretion. One study found that supplementing with 500mg of spirulina daily combined with zinc supplementation was enough to reduce arsenic toxicity by almost half!** 

One of the easiest ways to incorporate BGA into your diet is through Spirulina capsules
