Spirulina is a natural, blue green algae that springs from fresh bodies of water. It is incredibly high in protein and various kinds of vitamins and minerals, the fact why it’s now referred to as “super food.” It’s now being processed and sold as supplement worldwide in the form of powder, tablets, and capsules.
Spirulina is essentially made up 65% protein and amino acids, and tons of vitamins and minerals including thiamine/vitamins B1, folic acid/ B9, nicotinamide/B3, riboflavin/B2, pyridoxine/B6, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin D, vitamin E, iron, calcium, potassium, sodium, chromium, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, manganese, selenium and zinc.
That’s not all! Spirulina also contains the fatty acid GLA (gamma linolenic acid) and Omega 3, 6, and 9; these nutrients have anti-inflammatory properties which is great for people with joint pains and other kinds of inflammation.
With all those nutrients found at this fabulous product, what are the benefits that one can get from taking a daily dose of Spirulina? Aside from preventing the occurrence of sniffling, sneezing, and other sorts of allergies, Spirulina is also a great source of protein, with more protein content than red meat, making it a great protein-source substitute to vegetarians as well as those who want to build muscles.
