Spirulina species include a few of the hundreds of species collectively known as blue-green algae. Because there are a variety of different types of algae, they are classified according to their color: green, blue-green, yellow-green, red, and brown. Similar to plants, algae remove carbon dioxide from the air and release oxygen. Algae are able to synthesize and create proteins and sugars as do animals. Algae multiply very rapidly. The two most common species of algae used for human consumption are spirulina maxima and spirulina platensis.
