Why is phycocyanin important? 

The blue plant substance has anti-inflammatory properties and protects the cells as a radical scavenger.

Typical applications: Spirulina platensis

Whether vegetable or pasta dishes, dips and even pastries: spirulina algae, in combination with other healthy foods and spices, can produce tasty dishes with a kick, which are easily digestible and do not burden the body.

What is healthy for the master is also healthy for the animal in smaller portions. Nowadays, most domestic cats lack important vital substances such as vitamin A, vitamin B1, selenium, calcium and phosphorus, because many cat foods can only contain and supply these artificially or not at all. From these deficiency symptoms usually follow various diseases.

The cat food "Rosina's Finest" supports the immune system through organic Spirulina and thus supplies the cats with essential trace elements and minerals, which should contribute to the strengthening of the bones and the stability of the blood sugar level.
