Spirulina is a form of blue-green algae that is widely regarded as a super food. It grows in warm, alkaline (as opposed to acidic) bodies of fresh water.

Spirulina is known to contain many B vitamins, including vitamin B12. Because there is still some debate about how well its B12 content can be absorbed by the body, spirulina should not be relied on as the only source of this vital nutrient.
