The Nurturing Potential of Spirulina for Animal Health

Animals, verbally inexpressive as they are, need a lot of attention and care when it comes to their mental and physical health. An animal, if not content, won’t be able to communicate through words, and hence we must understand their needs.

As for nutrition, the production of animal feed can be expensive, thus an economical, high-quality alternative ingredient is required to be the protein-rich supplements, as a conventional feedstock compensation.

Spirulina, a blue-green microalga used as a nutrient superfood for animals as well as humans, was traditionally used as a sustainable diet enhancer for domestic livestock, poultry, and aquaculture production, despite their diverse nutritional profiles.


Power-packed with multiple micro and macronutrients, certified organic spirulina used in animal feed can fulfil their intake requirements of carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, amino acids, carotenoids, and vitamins like vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and vitamin B3.

Along with this, spirulina content in an appropriate dosage provides the animals with copper, potassium, magnesium, manganese, and iron.


Bifurcating its benefits into the domestic animal category and the farm animal category, here are the benefits of spirulina in animal feed:

Domestic Pets-

·       Energy boost-

An imbalance in the immune system of pets like dogs result in chronic fatigue and low energy. Spirulina balances and stabilises their metabolic energy for stamina and vitality.

·   Gastrointestinal health

Suppressing bad bacteria like e-coli and Candida yeast, spirulina stimulates the growth of good bacteria

·   Detoxification

Subjected to toxic chemicals through air, water, and food, the phytonutrients of this plant-based supplement help cleanse the body.

·   Reducing the risk of cancer

Spirulina stimulates natural killer cells and similar anti-immune components of the immune system that can help fight cancer cells

·   Help Allergies

Reductions in IL-6 (interleukin-6) improves the immunity variables of the pet, thus preventing allergies.

Farm Animals-

·       For Immunity

The omega fatty acids, carotenoids and essential amino acids present in spirulina, along with the microbes, strengthens the cattle’s immune system.

·       For Egg Production

Manipulation of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in the animal fodder results in improving the quality of their eggs, for human consumption.

·       For Milk Production and Quality

Microalgal action on lactation and the quality and amount of  milk being produced largely depends on the animal’s digestive system, which is improved by spirulina.

·       For Meat Quality

With the improved health of farm animals, comes the better quality of meat to be consumed by humans.

·       As A Prebiotic

The polysaccharides in the organic spirulina supplement confers the prebiotic properties and dietary fibres.
