Benefits of Spirulina
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that’s being developed as the “food of the future”, and it’s easy to see why. A superfood with over 100 nutrients (more than any other plant, grain or herb), it’s used the world over as a food supplement for maintaining health, energy, weight loss and cleansing programmes.
Known as a ‘complete protein’, Spirulina is up to 95% digestible, which means it’s very easy for your body to absorb it, and it has an astonishing 300% more protein than fish, meat or poultry. Even better, it contains no cholesterol.
If that wasn’t enough, Spirulina also has 58 times more iron than spinach! Taking into account the fact that iron deficiency is the most common mineral deficiency in the world, especially among women, children and the elderly, then Spirulina is the perfect way to ensure you’re getting your daily requirement of iron which is essential for strong red blood cells and a healthy immune system.
Think carrots are the best way to get beta-carotene into your diet? Think again. Spirulina is 25 times richer in beta-carotene than the humble carrot. Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant that protects your body from free-radical damage, so by taking Spirulina daily, you’re looking after your body in the best possible way.
