(NaturalNews) In a major new announcement for those who enjoy spirulina superfood, we've just launched our own Health Ranger brand of spirulina, making it available in pouches and storable steel cans, all at a very competitive price.
Our spirulina is "Spirulina Pacifica," the spirulina grown in Hawaii using deep ocean seawater which is rich in trace minerals. That's why this spirulina contains 94 trace minerals in addition to all the other phytonutrients naturally found in spirulina. The seawater is pumped from deep in the ocean, and due to global ocean currents, this seawater hasn't been on the surface of the ocean for literally thousands of years (long before the industrial revolution). It is literally pre-industrial ocean water, which is why it's so clean and pure.
I've personally toured the facility where this spirulina is grown, inspecting the harvesting, drying and packaging facilities. They use an "ocean chill drying technology" to dry the spirulina at relatively low temperatures, preserving nutrients. There are absolutely no pesticides, herbicides, GMOs or synthetic chemicals used in the production of this spirulina. All the spirulina is rigorously tested for radiation and is consistently found to have no detectable levels of radiation.
That's why this is the world's premiere spirulina grower, and thanks to our relationship with them, we've been able to private-label their premium spirulina so that we can make it available to our customers at a very competitive price.
We now have this Hawaiian spirulina available in both powder and tablet format. We just completed a packaging run, so this product is freshly produced and available right now. Here's what we have:
It's important to explain "organic standards" when it comes to spirulina. USDA organic standards were developing for dirt-and-soil farming. But spirulina is an "aquaculture" crop, meaning it's grown in large pools of water, not dirt.
Spirulina needs lots of nitrogen, and the USDA says that organic farmers need to use manure (or compost tea) as a source of nitrogen. But that would be gross in large pools of water, right? You wouldn't dump cow manure into large pools of spirulina and call that "organic," would you? That's the kind of thing the USDA wants spirulina growers to do as part of being considered organic.
Obviously, our grower in Hawaii doesn't do that. They use clean sources of nitrogen and phosphorous that have nothing to do with animal feces. They wouldn't even think of dumping animal waste into their pools! That would increase the bacteria count and contaminate the entire crop with alarming levels of heavy metals.
So that's why our spirulina is not certified organic. In my view, it's actually CLEANER than organic, and no animal feces is used in its production (thank goodness). We always choose organic when it comes to dirt-grown foods like berries, non-GMO corn, etc., but when it comes to aquaculture (i.e. foods grown in pools of water), the USDA organic standards just make no sense. (The USDA needs to radically update their organic standards for aquaculture.)
Taste our spirulina to see for yourself that it's clean, fresh and very potent. I've tasted many sources of spirulina, and nothing tastes as fresh and clean as Spirulina Pacifica. And now we have it available in a more affordable format, under our own brand name, directly from the Natural News Store.
