Superfood Spirulina

IMG_2333IMG_2324
There are so many foods that are classified as superfood and spirulina happens to be one of them. Not many people know about spirulina and to be honest I only knew about this about one year ago.When I first encountered spirulina, I wasn’t a big fan on the smell and taste of it. Slowly, I started adding spirulina into juices and fell in love with it. Spirulina is an algae (cyanobacteria) that relies its food source from the sun just like plants do. Unlike most algae, Spirulina is a superfood. Superfood meaning that it is very nutrient dense and has many benefits to health and well-being. Just consuming small amounts of superfoods can give you large doses of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. How awesome is that?  If everyone could pay more attention to all the nutrient dense foods no one would be lacking certain vitamins and minerals. Nowadays, people are consuming a “HIGH calorie diet and LOW in nutrient food”. And some people may not even realize that they may be eating foods that are even low in nutrients. My goal here is to educate what I know by guiding your way to Staying Hearty. 

Some Health benefits

High PROTEIN-this is great for all the vegetarians/vegans to obtain their protein. For all the meat eaters out there, this would be a great substitute.
High IRON- great for vegans/veg, people who are anemic and also great for women who are menstruating every month.
High in OMEGA 3′s-6′s-9′s.
High CHLOROPHYLL- Chlorophyll removes toxins from the blood by building new red blood cells.

I could go on with more health benefits, but these are the few of the health benefits that really stood out for me. I hope by reading my posts you guys are able to learn something new each time.

Stay Hearty.

    • Anna I am so happy to see that you are interested in trying this product! The price I would say is quite reasonable for the amount it gives. If you are vegetarian or vegan I would say you could definitely incorporate this into your diet. However, I wouldn’t recommend replacing this for meat on a daily bases. There are definitely more vegan variety you should definitely eat. I would say never rely on one product entirely! Let me know if you do try it out!

  2. I used to take spirulina. I used to be crazy about vitamins because as soon as I started taking them incl spirulina my hair grew like a weed, my nails were so strong & my skin cleared up.

    I stopped after I lost a big bag of vitamins and to replace everything would’ve cost somewhere around $100 and I started feeling like maybe I was becoming too obsessive.

    Now I am trying to get back on the vitamin routine, lol.

  3. I found this very interesting, I’ve actually never heard of it before!

  8. You so inspire me to eat better! My mom has tried spirulina before and she did mention that it smells a little bit fishy just because it is an algae and it totally put me off! I think I might give it another shot now though ;)
