Hawaiian Spirulina History
Various types of kelp and other sea plants have been used traditionally by coastal societies for centuries, the use of Spirulina as a food is a rather different story. Although its scientific documentation as a “superfood” did not occur until the 20th century, its first use was actually 200 years prior to that when a severe drought hit the South American continent. Facing starvation the indigenous people gathered green algae from tidal pools that were rapidly reproducing in the mid summer’s heat.
It was not until World War II, however, when facing an embargo that the Japanese government created the Society for the Study of Algaes. After intensive research two strains were found to have the perfect complement of protein, carbohydrates, minerals and essential fatty acids necessary to support human life. These were called Chlorella (grown in fresh water) and Spirulina (grown in salt water). A brilliant scientist named Dr. Hiroshi Nakamura then created unique aqua (water) culture models capable of producing many tons of this life giving superfood. After the war the project continued and Dr. Nakamura traveled to the United States to share his discovery with another brilliant phyco-biologist (sea plant biologist) named Dr. Christopher Hills. Together they planted the seeds of research over 30 years ago that have resulted in spirulina taking its place among the most powerful health promoting foods on earth.
How to Use Hawaiian Spirulina
Pure Planet Hawaiian Spirulina comes in both tablet and powder form. Take 6-20 tablets or 1 - 3 teaspoons of powder mixed with juice, water or in a smoothie per day. Hawaiian Spirulina is a whole food, so you can take it either with meals or on an empty stomach.
Some people take as many as 20-40 tablets (2-4 Tbsp powder) per day. It is important to remember that spirulina provides high powered nutrition in a whole food form. It is not synthetic supplementation.

World’s First 100% Pure Spirulina Tablet!
Pure Planet has perfected a unique method of producing the world’s purest spirulina tablets. We do not use binders or fillers or any tableting aids in our spirulina tablets. Most other manufacturers use binders, fillers, or some type of tablet press lubricants or flow agents. As another alternative, other manufacturers use the granulation method which destroys spirulina's nutritional potency by increased exposure of the spirulina to light, moisture, heat and oxygen. You can rest assured that when you use Pure Planet spirulina you get the cleanest tablets in the world!
Not All Proteins are Created Equal...
The proteins in spirulina are absolutely unique. Unlike other plant proteins which are notably low in biological value (incomplete proteins) because of incomplete essential amino acids, spirulina has a high-biological value protein with a superior complete amino acid profile containing - in the correct proportions - all 8 essential amino acids plus an additional 10 nonessential amino acids.
Superior Assimilation and Easy Digestion
Spirulina contains virtually no indigestible substances. Unlike other plant foods whose nutrients are largely unavailable (unless cooked or sprouted) because they are encased like microscopic nuts within walls of tough indigestible cellulose, spirulina's cell walls are bubble-thin complex natural sugars which practically dissolve upon contact with moisture and digestive enzymes. Within moments, its concentrated nutrients, enzymes, and living essences are absorbed into the bloodstream without the momentous loss of energy incurred in the digestion of ordinary foods.
Unlike other high-protein foods, which are characteristically difficult to digest, spirulina is extraordinarily easy to digest: it has an unmatched digestibility coefficient of 95%! Its amino acids are delivered in an essentially “free form” state for almost instantaneous assimilation
