Spirulina platensis is a cold processed raw blue green micro-algae that is fed by the pure, 2000 feet deep alkaline ocean waters, of Hawaii. Spirulina is the most nutritious plant food known to humanity. It is rich in beta carotene (10 times more concentrated than carrots) and phytonutrients (for immune system building). This tiny aquatic plant offers 60% all-vegetable protein (with all 8 essential amino acids), essential vitamins (high in Vit-B12 and Vit-B complex) and phytonutrients such as the antioxidant beta carotene, the rare essential fatty acid GLA, sulfolipids, glycolipids and polysaccharides. Spirulina is a complete chakra nourishing food! Its deep colour comes from its rainbow of natural pigments: chlorophyll (green), phycocyanin (blue) and carotenoids (orange), that harvest the sun’s energy. Easy-to digest so nutrients are absorbed quickly.
As one of the most nutritious, concentrated whole foods known to humankind, one 3 gram (~ 3/4 tsp) serving of Deep Ocean Spirulina provides:
• 60% protein and an excellent source of Vitamins A, K1, K2, B12 and Iron, Manganese, and Chromium*
• Rich source of health-giving phytonutrients such as carotenoids, GLA, SOD, and phycocyanin*
• More nutrition gram per gram than any other Spirulina on the market*
• Strengthens the immune system*
• Boosts energy levels*
• Supports cellular health*
• Supports cardiovascular, eye and brain health*
Packed with nutrients, Deep Ocean Spirulina has:
2800% more beta-carotene than carrots
3900% more iron than spinach
600% more protein than tofu
280% more antioxidants than blueberries

Wild Atlantic Sun-dried Kelp Flakes
$6.50 / 32 gr OCIA Certified Organic & a Raw Food.
Kelp is a generic name for over 300 species of large brown algae that belong to the order Laminariales. Our Kelp is Laminaria longicruris, also known as "Wild Atlantic Kombu," because of its similarity to Japanese Kombu. Kelp grows in dense, shallow beds in the quiet waters of secluded bays. It is harvested during the low tides of the full and new moons between April and August. Like the other native seaweeds Alaria and Laver, each frond is hung individually to dry in the sun. Kelp is a rich source for minerals and trace elements, including calcium, potassium and magnesium and it offers substantial amounts of B vitamins. Scientists have found that alginic acid, an important intercellular polysaccharide found in large brown algae like Kelp, can significantly reduce the amount of radioactive strontium-90 and heavy metals such as cadmium absorbed through the intestinal wall.
Wild Atlantic Dulse Flakes - Palmaria palmata
$8/40g OCIA Certified Organic & a Raw Food.
Our Dulse is hand-harvested from the remote Gulf of Maine bays at the peak of nutrition and taste (early summer to early fall.) The Dulse Flakes undergo annual OCIA organic inspection for handling and harvesting, as well as voluntary testing for heavy metal, chemical and microbiological contaminants. Our Dulse Flakes are an excellent source of Iodine. They contain a significant amount of protein compared to land vegetables. Dulse is rich in iron (10% DV/serving) and a good source of B-vitamins.
Kelp Juice Plant Magic
Natural ~ Organic ~ Liquid
We are totally stoked about carrying Canadian Pacific Ocean Kelp Juice Plant Magic:
And here's why:
Kelp Juice Plant Magic is consciously and sustainable harvested from the fast- growing tips of the Giant Pacific Kelp Plant, known by the botanical term macrocystis integrifolia. To protect and preserve the kelp bed long-term, this species of kelp is hand harvested by local divers from the cold, pristine and secluded waters of coastal British Columbia. This variety of giant kelp is the fastest growing plant known, growing up to 3 feet per day! Harvesting takes place twice per year, in late spring and again in early fall (to protect indigenous species). Only the actively growing portion of the plant-the top 2 to 4 metres-is selected.
The harvested kelp plant is first prepared by power-washing the fronds with fresh water. Then the kelp is liquified by a specialized cold process which mechanically reduces the plant to a concentrated liquid which makes it completely user friendly with any commercial spray or applicator equipment. Kelp Juice Plant Magic retains all of the kelp’s natural properties and is in no way chemically altered.
Comparatively, other liquid kelp products on the market are dehydrated using caustic bases under high temperature and high pressure which disintegrates the kelp. Due to the aggressive processing they must endure, dehydrated kelp products are inferior in quality and performance.
