The primary purpose of this site is to help people
This site does not make money, in due course, we hope some income via Affiliate links will cover our time and expenses, but it is not a niche driven by profit. But a site driven by enthusiasm for the Spirulina superfood, that has helped their owners to overcome their own health challenges. Many people in the US, Canada & Europe are not aware of the amazing benefits of perhaps the best food supplement to boost your immune system.*
We want to be very clear, we are NOT (Repeat NOT) suggesting that a Spirulina superfood supplement is in any shape or form a prevention or a cure for COVID19.
Over prescription of antibiotics
“Over prescription of antibiotics over the last 60 years has accelerated the mutation of resistant bacteria. People taking medications and antibiotics are more vulnerable. Antibiotics kill beneficial flora in the intestines, making room in the intestines, for infection by drug resistant bacteria”. So describes the Robert Henrikson book on Spirulina.
Antibiotics do not prevent viruses, but it’s the wider point about resistance to antibiotics we are making.
I feel like Dr WHO
My Own Health has been renewed
My own personal health has been restored and renewed taking the best food supplement to boost your immune system. By regularly taking a well sourced Spirulina food supplement. Honestly, to those who know the series, I feel like Dr Who.*
Critical to the renewal of my health, has been the regular use of a well sourced Spirulina food supplement, to strengthen my immune system. I take some 3 or 3.5 grammes a day of Spirulina.
In the gym recently (I have stopped going now due to the risk of catching or spreading COVID -19) a personal trainer asked me my age and could not believe it when I told him I was nearly 60. “You train harder and have a more developed body than more than half of this gym he kindly commented. “Your energy levels for somebody of your age is phenomenal”. “Neither do you look nearly 60”.
3 grammes of Spirulina = 3 kgs of assorted fruit and vegetables
As children, we were encouraged to “eat up our fruits and vegetables” because they are good for you. This may surprise you; but as a rule of thumb, 3 grams (grammes), is the equivalent of 3 KG of fruits and vegetables in terms of nutrients. 3 grams (grammes)!

The Robert Henrikson book
“Spirulina World Food: How this micro algae can transform your health and our planet,” by Robert Henrikson”.
Spirulina contains compounds including phycocyanin, polysaccharides, and sulfolipids that enhance the immune system. “This super food has the most remarkable concentration of functional nutrients ever known in any food, plant, grain or herb” “Spirulina contains sulfolipids, found to prevent viruses from either attaching to or penetrating into cells, thus preventing viral infection”, so describes the Robert Henrikson book.
BUT PLEASE CAREFULLY NOTE, WE ARE NOT (Repeat NOT) ADVOCATING Spirulina is A CURE OR A SPECIFIC PREVENTION e.g. for Covid 19.
Strengthen Your Immune System?
“Is there something I can take to boost or strengthen my immune system ?”* A clinical trial (1) demonstrated it may fortify the immune system in older people. Another study (2) of 19 members of the Polish Rowing team undertaking strenuous training, highlighted the effectiveness of Spirulina in maintaining the immune system. And a Chinese study (3) highlighted by the UN, (para 5.1 highlights the benefit of Spirulina with boosting immunity in the extreme case of radiation)*
We want to repeat and be very clear, we are NOT (Repeat NOT) suggesting that a Spirulina superfood supplement is in any shape or form a prevention or a cure for COVID19.
Push Back from Microbiologists
We have had some push back from an ex microbiologist on Twitter. Fair enough. They are entitled to be sceptical, to have their own protocols and views. And of course have their own interests to protect. We would welcome many more studies on Spirulina too.
For now, I would refer you to the Henrickson book. We would suggest, the current & recent generations of microbiologists appear to have made us more vulnerable. The Pharmaceutical & Health Insurance Industry also have major interests at stake. Particularly if a super food or food supplement means we need to buy fewer medications. Let’s keep an open mind and remember the world is not flat. We think the experience of 3.5 Billion years’ + experience of this astonishing micro-algae, that was fundamental in the development & evolution of our planet and could potentially be critical in the avoidance of a crisis with regards to Global Warming, holds the trump card.
Please keep healthy and strong. If you wish to purchase Spirulina via the links on this site, it will cost you no more than buying direct. But, please do try some (under the guidance of your doctor as there are some conditions that this superfood is not recommended for). Please also be careful of the source for the reasons described on “What is Spirulina About”.
