Splendid Spirulina

Now we all know that there are no quick fixes to pretty much anything in life – especially when it comes to our health and nutrition.

If your energy is lacking or you aren’t feeling up to par, chances are it didn’t happen overnight.

There are some superfoods that can help the process move along more quickly.

Enter Spirulina Spirulina is a natural blue green algae that has been used for centuries as a healing food.  It is packed with easy to digest protein (in fact it is more than half protein by weight), vitamins (more beta carotene than carrots), minerals (including iron), antioxidants, enzymes and more.

Research has found its properties can boost the immune system, the cardiovascular system and overall energy levels.

One study found that spirulina increased exercise performance in runners.*  Spirulina is also a known anti-inflammatory and antihistamine.

Spirulina can be taken via tablets, powders, or flakes. To be perfectly honest, spirulina is not going to win any awards for taste. However, there are ways to add it to foods and drinks to mask the flavor.
