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.
