Spirulina So Nutritious

Spirulina is believed to have come from the very first microorganism born on Earth 3.5 billion years ago. Like plants, it has the ability to absorb energy from the sun. Spirulina grows in water with a high alkaline pH, and once harvested it may be consumed in various forms such as tablets, capsules, and powder.

Nutritional benefits:

Spirulina is high in protein; vitamins B1, B2, and B3; copper; iron, zinc, and manganese; and magnesium and potassium. It contains all essential amino acids and is a powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. Spirulina is thought to have anti-cancer properties as well as reduce blood sugar levels. It also improves muscle strength and endurance and is great for supporting an active lifestyle.

Since spirulina contains small amounts of almost every nutrient we need, it is considered to be one of the most nutritious foods on the planet!

At last we bring news of some super new clothing from Alternative Thinking! Because our Seed of Creationclothing has been such a hit, we've brought in some of their new pieces, the "Goddess" and "Jem in the Eye" hoodies pictured below. Seed of Creation is based out of Ubud, Bali, and has been pumping out the raddest designs over the years. They're known for printing artwork based on universal geometry and ancient symbols, and printing them onto soft, light fabrics using crystal-infused ink.


Seed of Creations's goal? To liberate conscious evolution through the production of multi-media wearable art, using symbols and archetypes that cross cultures and boundaries. They're also big into using community-based networks as a way to reach collective goals for a reformed and unified society.

And announcing a brand completely new to the shop, Alekai, based out of Goa, India.


This unisex hood is perfect for a night on the town or romping around a festival. Alekai's style is influenced by the tribes of the world, music, nature, and raw human experience. The designer creates hoods, dresses, tops, and other unique garments, and is personally involved in designing the block prints, dyeing, and embroidery aspect of production, fusing ancient and modern techniques and style. Come to the shop to try one on!
