What is Spirulina?
Spirulina is a type of microscopic blue-green algae called cyanobacterium. It is said that the Aztecs gave it to their warriors for strength and endurance. For centuries, Spirulina (also called Manna in some cultures) has constituted an important part of the diet in many communities, for it is a true superfood.
Spirulina is considered one of the most nutritious super-foods because it contains non-toxic vitamin A in the form of caratinoids, B vitamins, minerals, trace elements, antioxidants, chlorophyll, and phytonutrients. It is over 60% “complete” protein, which is easy to digest. Spirulina is considered a complete protein because it contains all of the 22 essential amino acids needed to make a protein complete.
The Health Benefits of Spirulina are:
1. Reduce fatigue
2. Improve digestion
3. Appetite Control
4. Support Liver and Kidneys
5. Reduce Inflammation
6. Nature’s Detoxifier-high chlorophyll content
7. Boosts Immune System
How do I take Spirulina?
Spirulina can be added to fresh juices, smoothies, or simply to water. Since it is 100% pure powder, Spirulina will mix easily. You can consume it first thing in the morning or in-between meals; perhaps sometimes for a quick afternoon boost.
