It all started in Australia in 1994 with John Mayger who had worked for Blackmores previously. One of the lines he carried was spirulina and he noted that its consumers were both diligent in researching the best quality and extremely healthy! John’s time at Blackmores impressed upon him the need for research-based substances. Spirulina has 30 years of positive research for effectiveness and safe usage, so it was a natural choice for him to focus on.
He researched the Spirulina market looking for the most superior product and found Cyanotech Corporation in Kona, Hawaii, known for their unique and superior strain of Spirulina. For more than 30 years – 12,000 generations of growth – their Hawaiian Spirulina has been adapting to the intense Hawaiian sun. These conditions have given birth to a distinctive carotene-rich strain known as Spirulina Pacifica, providing the highest levels of mixed carotenoids, enzymes and antioxidants of any Spirulina in the world. And so it was a logical choice for this strain to be used in the MicrOrganics products.
Fast forward to London, 2003, and following a high demand for the world’s best quality superfood in Australia, John Mayger’s close friend, Justin Simpson, launched MicrOrganics Hawaiian Spirulina in the UK. Justin handed over the reins in 2010 to return to Australia and MicrOrganics joined the Bestcare family. We’ve maintained the same quality supplier as John Mayger originally sourced. It ticks all the boxes as exactly the quality of product Bestcare brings to the market; the best in its field, whole superfood, nothing added or taken away, not processed and alkalising.
