You may have seen both a green and blue smoothie before. You may also have seen both blue and green spirulina powder. What is the difference between the two? We have the answers for you!
Although relatively new to western diets, spirulina was originally harvested and grown by the Aztecs for centuries. The algae grows in lakes, ponds, and even the ocean. All it needs is sun, CO2 and water to grow!
To answer it simply, green spirulina is the algae in it's most raw form. Exactly the stuff you would see growing in nature. The green has a whole host of benefits and is more of your vitamin and mineral hit. It has Vitamins A, C, D, and K which are vital for a healthy life!
Blue spirulina is a derivation of green spirulina, mainly the phycocyanin. Phycocyanin is what gives blue spirulina powder it's natural blue! It is also packed with antioxidants that help boost collagen production, support joint health and a healthy immune system.
