Not a day goes by without a Spirulina smoothie! Yes, that blue-green smile can make anyone’s day 🙂
Spirulina is a “superfood,” it is the most powerful nutrient rich and complete whole food. If mother earth had one food choice to feed all of humanity, it would be Spirulina, hands down! Enough said, huh? Just in case you want to know a little more about Spirulina, here are just a few of the scientifically researched and proven benefits:
- Helps regulate blood sugar and reduce weight, regulates cholesterol and blood pressure
- Ward’s off cancer, Alzheimer’s, Cardiovascular diseases such as heart attacks and stroke
- Binds and removes radiation from the body
- Brain food, eye food, microbe food for your digestive flora
- Reduces pain and inflammation, improves immune system
Spirulina delivers the nutrients, minerals and vitamins most individuals are deficient in. It is %60 protein and contains all the essential amino acids. Another interesting fact, Spirulina has 180% more calcium than whole milk! It blows spinach, carrots and tofu out of the water! Let’s put it this way, the amount and quality of antioxidants and phytonutrients in 3 grams of Spirulina you’d be hard pressed to get out of FIVE servings of fruits and vegetables!
Our favorite Spirulina is grown on the Big Island using deep ocean water that contains 94 minerals and trace elements, making it a very unique source of total nutrition.
