Spirulina is a cyanobacterium belonging to the genus Arthrospira. Often, two genus names are found for this alga. These are : Spirulina and Arthrospira. The two most common species are Spirulina (Arthrospira) maxima and Spirulina (Arthrospira) platensis. Phycocyanin and spirulina are a rich source of antioxidants that help protect the body from the consequences of oxidative stress.
