Do you know the benefits of Spirulina? It is considered one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet! It is a single cell organism, with a spiral physical configuration that comes from blue green freshwater algae. Usually found as a natural algae powder, it is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants, B-vitamins (Thiamin) and other nutrients. Are you vegan, or try to eat less meat? It’s a great protein source with its essential amino acids. It also includes the essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which has been noted for its anti-inflammatory properties. Spirulina is one of the few foods with a natural GLA content.
Also with its high source of (highly digestible) iron it’s a wonderful addition during pregnancy, after surgery or anytime the immune system needs a boost! Did you know that it has over 26 times the calcium in milk, without the casein too.
It’s also extremely high in chlorophyll which helps remove toxins from the blood. And who wants toxins in their blood?!
According to research and via GreenMedInfo.com Founder Sayer Ji: “Chlorophyll is an alternative source of energy for the human body, and actually all animals have this ability, because it goes into the mitochondria as a metabolite & enables the mitochondria to capture sunlight energy which photo energizes the kreb cycle in such a way that it produces significantly more ATP (adenosine triphosphate, transports chemical energy within cells for metabolism) which is sort of the energy currency of the body, without increasing oxidative stress.” (see Sayer Ji’s full video link HERE).
