Spirulina is a microscopic freshwater plant containing over 100 Synergistic nutrients. Basically, it is a natural vitamin tablet.
But it is better than any vitamin tablet you can take because it is an unrefined whole food so is absorbed up to 16x more effectively than multivitamin supplements!
Gram for gram it is one of nature’s richest and most complex sources of nutrition.
It is one of nature’s richest sources of protein – 65% of its weight, 300 x more than fish, meat or poultry but with zero cholesterol, which makes it a brilliant protein source for vegans and vegetarians and those wanting to consume a high protein diet.
It contains 58 x more iron than spinach per gram and 28 x richer than raw beef liver. It is a rich natural whole-food source of antioxidants, being 25% richer in beta-carotene than carrots. It is 2 x richer in chlorophyll than alfalfa, barley grass or wheatgrass so is more cleansing to the body because of these plants. It is a highly concentrated source of essential fatty acids (EFA’s) which are important for hormone balance.
It contains important B complexes and natural vitamin E, along with Calcium, and other essential chelated minerals and trace elements. It also contains Selenium, Methionine, Cysteine, Super Oxide Dismutase, Glutathione Peroxides, Copper, Manganese, Zinc, B-1, B-2, B-3, B-5, and B-6.
Spirulina also provides a wide range of delicate phytonutrients with very significant health benefits.
The best way to consume Spirulina is by mixing it into your smoothie in the morning, if this makes you gag just at the thought of this, you can take it in tablet form. If you want to take it for weight loss, take the tablets 30 – 45 minutes before a meal as it will give you the feeling of fullness.
Hawaiian Spirulina is recognized as containing the highest level of nutrients compared to other types, but it does come with a price tag. But once you take it, you will notice that you can drop all of the other supplements you are taking – which in turn will save you $$!
