Bruny Surin 2

As an Olympic sprint champion, I choose my food wisely when training. I've known about Spirulina for several years, and I'm impressed by its high protein content, about 60%, as well as all the nutrients it contains. What I like about Gandalf SpirulinaTM is that it's a Canadian company that offers impressive quality.

Our products

Spirulina is the world's first superfood and one of the most nutrient-rich foods on earth, dating back over 3 billion years. This microscopic blue-green microalgae is partly responsible for the production of oxygen in the atmosphere of our planet. It grows naturally in freshwater ponds and lakes in warm, sunny environments.

Chlorella is a spherical unicellular freshwater algae, a micro-organism that appeared on earth about 2.5 billion years ago. It is distinguished from other plants by an exceptional concentration of chlorophyll (3 to 5%), which explains its remarkable detoxifying power, which stimulates, among other things, the activity of the liver. It has a high percentage of protein (about 50%) and contains a high proportion of antioxidants that inhibit cell oxidation.

Astaxanthin is a powerful natural carotenoid pigment found in certain plants and marine animals such as wild sockeye salmon, lobster, shrimp, and crab, which consume large amounts of natural algae-based sources of astaxanthin. Often referred to as the "King of Carotenoids", astaxanthin is recognized as one of the most powerful antioxidants found in nature, capable of protecting our body's cells from free radical attack. It is particularly important because unlike other types of antioxidants, astaxanthin never becomes a pro-oxidant in the body and therefore can never cause harmful oxidation.

Unicorn Frappuccinos? Mermaid toast? Blue lagoon smoothies? Mystical named foods enhanced with natural colors is a current food trend that is taking over many people’s Instagram newsfeeds. The magical ingredient that’s causing all the craze? “Blue” spirulina.

Yoga is an ancient practice involving physical postures, concentration, meditation and deep breathing. The word itself is derived from the Sanskrit root yuj, meaning “to yoke”, or “to unite”. The practice aims to create union between body, mind and spirit, as well as between the individual self and universal consciousness.

The brain is the most complex organ in our body, receiving and processing information every second of our life and utilizing 20% of our body’s energy expenditure. The brain reacts to physical challenges, controls our emotional state and cognitive functions as well as being the control center for our body’s responses.

I have been using Gandalf Spirulina for many years and trust the quality.  I appreciate that Gandalf tests for heavy metals and toxins so that I can recommend it with confidence.

Essentially, I consume Gandalf Spirulina in a smoothie consisting of one cup of soy milk, one third of a banana and one raw egg. I blend them in a blender at a very low speed to avoid the destruction of the ingredients by shearing. My goal is above all to maintain a strong immune system, our best argument against all diseases and disorders, big and small, in the long run.

Hawaiian spirulina is the King of food on this planet. To my knowledge there is nothing more nutrient dense or beneficial to consume on a regular basis. I add a heaping tsp to my protein shake every day.
