It is green, it is good for you and it boasts a fair share of health promoting properties. Coined as a superfood, Spirulina is a natural algae that is rich in Chlorophyll, and much like verdant plants, gets its energy from the sun.
Spirulina is a 100% natural algae powder. The powder is incredibly high in protein and also a fantastic source of B-vitamins and antioxidants. Spirulina is harvested from non-contaminated bodies of water, and is a very potent nutrient source. Often recommended for vegetarians due to its high iron content, Spirulina is purely made up of essential acids and protein.
Grown around the world in freshwater, from Africa to Hawaii to other exotic locations such as Mexico, Spirulina is the blue-green algae with intense flavour that can often be found in green superfood beverages, energy bars and a variety of natural supplements. Spirulina is also high in calcium, and laboratory research suggests it can be good for those who suffer from pesky allergies and often have allergic reactions.
The best Spirulina is definitely an organic variety, and when used in powder form, it is best to take in at least two teaspoons daily. When you are sick, it is best to take in at least two tablespoons! Some who take Spirulina say that it tastes like pond water, and other say it just tastes horrible. If the powder form of Spirulina is too potent for you, there are high quality Spirulina capsules available.
Spirulina offers up some superb health benefits for those who regularly consume it. Spirulina is well-known for detoxing the body of heavy metals, and also helping to eliminate candida and improper digestion. Spirulina also helps to lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, decrease sinus inflammation and issues, speed up weight loss and lower the chance of stroke. Another positive benefit of Spirulina is that it boosts energy.
A few more interesting facts about Spirulina include the fact that it is made up of 65% protein and amino acids, including essential fatty acids, which means that Spirulina works well as an anti-inflammatory when taken with other Omega-3 supplements.
