Spirulina are microscopic blue-green algae in the shape of a perfect spiral coil living both in the sea and fresh water. They have been formed 3.5 billions of years ago and have been one of the first living forms on the planet. Blue-green algae like spirulina produced the oxygen in our atmosphere then.
Spirulina is a super nutrient and a super food and provides practically everything a human body needs to thrive. Its nutrients are so rich and well balanced that you would survive and thrive if spirulina was the only food you ate. Spirulina is great for people of all ages, including children.

Carob powder- The pectin and lignin in carob not only regulate digestion, they combine with harmful elements (even radioactive fallout) in digested food and carry them safely out of the body. Carob is an incredibly rich food source, and it perhaps the ideal “survival food” since it lasts a long time, requires no special storage conditions, and can be eaten with no preparations.
