Scientific research shows that cyanobacteria (what spirulina is classified as), was one of the first organisms to exist on the earth, as long as 3 billion years ago. The amazing thing is that this ancient strain of spirulina grew naturally, without organic fertilizers from other plants or animals.
Where Does Spirulina Come From?
In fact, many experts believe that spirulina played a large role in the planet's oxygen production. Further, it is thought that because of the oxygen being produced by cyanobacteria, that eventually, other life forms were enabled to develop some 2,900 million years later when the first simple life forms came into existence.
Yes. Spirulina is still growing naturally in ponds, rivers, and lakes all over the globe. While it is incredibly resistant to temperature and environmental fluctuations, it grows best in pristine, non-contaminated water sources with moderate temperatures, and plenty of sunlight. Because of this, the natural spirulina that's grown in Hawaii is the purest and most potent available.
