Spirulina… looks like fish food, but oh so good for you 😉
Still unaware of all the amazing things that spirulina can do for your body ? Well that’s about to change !
Spirulina is a microscopic blue – green algae that’s found in freshwater ponds, lakes and rivers and it’s said to be one of the most nutritionally complete food supplements around.
Spirulina is quite the soldier in the battle against free radical damage. It’s an excellent source of the antioxidant, beta-carotene. In fact, it contains 10 times more beta-carotene than carrots. One serving provides more antioxidants than five servings of fruits and veggies.
Spirulina is also extremely high in chlorophyll, which helps remove toxins from the blood and boost the immune system.
Good news vegetarians! Spirulina is rich in protein, and it is 100% plant-based. Spirulina’s protein content will help your muscles repair themselves after difficult workouts.
This green wonder contains 3 to 4 times the minimum daily requirements of vitamins A, D, K and B complex.
Your stomach will also reap its benefits. Spirulina stimulates the “good” bacteria in your digestive tract to promote healthy digestion etc. (Green means GO if you catch that hidden meaning!)
And that’s not all ! Spirulina’s other many benefits are: helping in weight loss, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), diabetes, stress, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and other women’s health issues.
Ok, so are you sold yet? Thought so !
But wait… here’s the hard part to swallow (no pun intended)… Spirulina on its own smells and tastes like pond scum or fish chum. But we’ve got you covered there too. Just mix a teaspoon or two in one of our Big Sky Blendz and spirulina takes on a whole new taste (and smell), promise!
