Since 1976, Earthrise® has produced and cultivated the purest, cleanest, and safest spirulina on earth. Earthrise® farm was the very first spirulina farm in North America, established in 1976, and today is the largest spirulina farm in the world. With over 40 years of experience and a 108-acre site, Earthrise® has continued to produce high quality and safe spirulina for consumers around the world.
The Earthrise® farm is located in the Sonoran Desert of southeastern California. In this remote and sunny part of the country, far from cities, highways, and airports, the air is clean. Mineral-rich Colorado River water is pumped through canals to large settling ponds, then through filters into the growing ponds. From this environment, free of pesticides and herbicides, Earthrise® Californian Spirulina yields more nutrition per acre than any other food.
- Spirulina is a blue-green alga that is one of the most nutrient packed superfoods on earth. This amazing environmentally sustainable algae has been a nutritious dietary supplement for thousands of years.
- Spirulina contains phytonutrients that have strong antioxidant and anti- inflammatory activities.† These antioxidants support cellular health by protecting cells from the damaging effects of reactive oxygen radicals.† Free radicals can cause damage to parts of cells such as proteins, DNA, and cell membranes. Spirulina may prevent the loss of memory by lessening Aβ protein accumulation, reducing oxidative damage, and mainly augmenting the catalase activity.†
- Scientific evidence shows that spirulina supports a healthy cardiovascular system, and protects from oxidative stress. Spirulina may lower total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides while raising HDL (the “good”) cholesterol.†
- Spirulina contains 15x more Vitamin A (beta-carotene) than carrots. Spirulina also has naturally-occurring essential amino acids and Zinc.†
- Spirulina has been shown to promote innate (inborn) immunity, the body’s first line of defense. In this regard it promotes macrophage function, T-cell proliferation, and Natural Killer Cell activity. It is also important in the regulation of antibody production.†
