What is Camu Camu ?
It is thanks to our cold grinding, the only process to date that does not alter the exceptional properties of organic spirulina and camu camu, that we now offer our spirulina powder associated with camu camu. This powder will bring you all the benefits of your spirulina (iron, vitamin K2, vitamin B12, Provitamin A β-carotene) associated with vitamin C from the Camu Camu bio. An original idea of Gourmet Spirulina that allows you to take its organic spirulina together with its vitamin C directly in a single bag for easier to consume. In addition, vitamin C facilitates the absorption of iron which will enhance the effects of organic spirulina on your body while ensuring energy, tone and strengthening of immune defenses with vitamin C!
Camu Camu is the fruit containing the most vitamin C extremely bioavailable (very easily assimilated by the body). Camu Camu is a fruit that grows in Peru and naturally contains a significant amount of vitamin C.
Thanks to the creation of Gourmet Spirulina and its 70% Organic Spirulina tablet and 30% Organic Camu Camu, you will get more than 50% of daily vitamin C intake, more than 20% of vitamin K and iron easily assimilated and without effects Beta carotene or vitamin B12. The addition of Camu Camu's vitamin C, mixed with spirulina, facilitates the assimilation of the iron contained in spirulina. This will further enhance the effectiveness of these tablets in your body and your entire immune system will benefit.
Camu-camu (or Myrciaria dubia) is a tree native to the Amazonian forest that belongs to the family Myrtaceae, the same family as guava. The fruits of these trees are often used in Peruvian cuisine. Camu Camu fruit contains one of the highest levels of vitamin C, between 20 and 30 times more than a kiwifruit. It is also rich in antioxidant compounds (ORAC value of fresh fruits more than 5 times higher than blackberries).
The Camu Camu also has protective, toning and immunostimulating virtues, it is considered a good ally against exhaustion, stress or cold. Thanks to many of these active ingredients, it plays an anti-inflammatory role, strengthens the immune system and improves the body's natural defenses. A cure of spirulina and camu camu with the help of our tablets will be then beneficial to you in the event of convalescence, tiredness, flu or other viral affections and will protect you from other patients by reinforcing your defenses imunitary.
Genuinely raw spirulina, dehydrated at less than 50°C
An exceptional know-how is required to get the very best possible spirulina. We dry our spirulina at less than 50°C for an optimal preservation of spirulina's natural good taste and its nutrients. By keeping temperatures so low, oxidation and enzymatic reactions are kept to an absolute minimum, which enables us to get the very best portion and maximise nutrient content.
Phycocyanin (one of the compounds of spirulina) strengthens the immune system.
It is phycocyanin that spirulina owes its nickname of blue alga - particularly potent antioxidant pigment, it is the best indicator of the drying quality of spirulina. With about 17% of the net weight of each sachet, Gourmet Spiruline offers the best phycocyanin levels on the market, twice as much as most spirulina on the market and as many as a thousand ampoules of pure phycocyanin sold in pharmacies!
A production of spirulina responsible.
Passionate and responsible entrepreneurs, we pay great attention to the social and environmental impact of our activity. That's why we have chosen to work exclusively partners who are responsible and responsible in their activity by ensuring the carbon offset of the transport of our spirulina. Grown in India
A humanitarian production in fair trade
Our Spirulina tablets are produced by us and come from the flakes from India (humanitarian farm). The Camu Camu comes from Peru. This small tropical country has the ideal sunny climate that spirulina thrives on but severe malnutrition is very common there. In a fair trade approach, our sales in the UK help the farm achieve economic viability in its mission of supplying spirulina to vulnerable people (malnourished children, people with HIV/AIDS, etc.). Spirulina will contribute a critical intake of nutrients, either for free or at a subsidized cost. On average, for each pouch of spirulina Tablets that you will purchase, our partner will be able to distribute a month of daily use for a malnourished person in India.
Our fair trade approach is certified by Made In Respect and audited by Ecocert.

The typical portion
By taking about 3 grams of spirulina powder and organic camu camu a day you supplement your intake of iron and vitamin A enough to ensure your needs of the day. These are the two most common deficits in France, but the benefits of spirulina do not stop there: with these 3 grams per day of spirulina and camu camu 100% organic, you will also find your contributions in vitamin B12 and vitamin K2 of the day as well as a real cocktail of antioxidants. According to your needs, and your feelings, you can obviously without problem consume several times this quantity - this is the case of some great sportsmen, very deficient people, or fans of spirulina!
One month of consumption in each sachet
Spirulina is primarily a (super) food, so it is not consumed in perfectly defined doses. To give you an indication, with a bag of 90g, you have enough to eat an average portion a day for a month.
Optimum conservation for almost two years
We only sell bags from the latest harvest, which usually gives you almost 2 years of optimal storage on each bag. They are also specially designed for optimal conservation and have a small zip to close them by avoiding moisture penetration. Thanks to their size, you make sure you have the same quality of Spirulina when you first open your sachet.
How much to consume and what are the contraindications of Spirulina?
Spirulina source of antioxidants helps fight against oxidative stress
The typical consumption is between one and two tablespoons per day or 6 to 8 tablets per day (sportsmen, very deficient people and unconditional spirulina). Due to the very high vitamin K content of spirulina - the vitamin that regulates blood clotting - people on anticoagulants must avoid spirulina or adapt their treatment with medical expertise. Similarly, because of its high richness in highly bioassimilable iron, people suffering from hemochromatosis - a genetic disorder of iron hyper-assimilation - must avoid consuming spirulina.
