Spirulina Academy

There has been much written about the health benefits of Spirulina over the years. I have decided to highlight a few important points below. If you have interests in learning more please start with “Spirulina the Magic Food” by Genene Tefera DVM, PhD from the Microbial Genetic Resources Department, Institute of Biodiversity Conservation, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. His excellent scientific article in which he was gracious enough to let me reproduce for my website is an excellent starting point as it covers every aspect of Spirulina. Enjoy!

If the Doctors article was not enough for you I have included more. Please follow the links.
