Its value as a food source is demonstrated by the fact that the conquering Spanish found the Aztecs using green algae (spirulina) in their diets. Spirulina is 65% - 71% complete protein, compared to beef’s 22% protein. The algae is a source of eight amino acids, chelated minerals, natural plant sugars, trace minerals and enzymes, in an easily assimilated form. Specifically, spirulina contains potassium, calcium, zinc, magnesium, manganese, selenium, iron, phosphorous, and is rich in chlorophyll. It can be used as a pre-meal supplement and is one of the few plant sources of vitamin B12. Because of its high vitamin B12 content it makes an excellent nutritional supplement for vegetarians whose diets usually lack vitamin B12.
