Many spirulina products on the market are often contaminated with arsenic, lead, cadmium and other heavy metals. This is because the same powerful cleansing properties of spirulina are also what cause it to bind to heavy metals and other toxins. Not to mention, most spirulina is grown in large commercial pond systems in China, a country widely known for pollution and contamination.
In order to address this, the non-GMO Arthrospira used in the production of Health Ranger Select Hawaiian Spirulina are cultivated in Biosecure Zones: pristine open ponds using a combination of 100% fresh potable water from Hawaiian aquifers and ultra-pure, deep ocean water that contains all 94 trace minerals and elements.
Once harvested, the Arthrospira are dried using patented Ocean Chill Drying technology. This dries the spirulina at relatively low temperatures, which ensures the retention of maximum nutrient levels in the finished product. As with all Brighteon Store products, our spirulina is routinely subjected to lab tests for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbiology for every lot produced.
