Spirulina is a kind of cyanobacteria that can live in water with high pH.

What it is[edit]

Spirulina can refer to two species: Arthrospira platensis and A. maxima. It is used as a dietary supplement. It is sold in flake, tablet, and powder form. It's also used as fodder supplement.[1] Spirulina grows best in an environment that has pH of 8.5 or more.
