Spirulina

What is spirulina

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that nutritionists call the superfood of the future.

You probably never thought you would add algae powder from tropical lakes to your smoothies, but spirulina is a popular addition to many health-oriented eaters. Although this superfood is currently in the spotlight because of its nutrients and nutritional value, spirulina is not a newcomer. It was already a superfood long before nutritionists started adding to their smoothies in the 21st century.

Spirulina is perhaps one of the oldest life forms on earth. The first people who ever used these algae as food sources are unclear, but Aztecs and African natives have already consumed the algae in their daily diet many centuries ago.

Content

Dried spirulina contains about 60 to 70 percent protein. It is actually considered one of the few plant-based 'complete protein' sources, which means that it contains all essential amino acids that your body needs, but does not produce itself. It is also a good source of calcium, iron, magnesium and vitamins A, E and K. Spirulina may be more beneficial for vegans or vegetarians who have insufficient iron in their diet. Touted as a "superfood," health claims around the blue-green algae include the ability to increase immunity, combat allergies, and reduce fatigue.

With its high nutrient density, the benefits of spirulina reach far and wide. It is a product that often comes back in the ingredients list of smoothies that are put together to produce some extra energy, reduce fatigue and suppress the appetite in a natural way. Great benefits that for many people means the replacement for starting coffee.

Like other superfoods, spirulina can strengthen the immune system, aid digestion, balance the pH of the body and reduce inflammation. Small studies support these claims, but more research is needed to know if these statements are true.

Spirulina is available as tablets or powders. Logically wise, the powder variant is most suitable if you want to incorporate it in your smoothie or other "green" recipes. Spirulina can be a bit pricey. It is always important to always choose reputable brands such as Health Force, Marcus Rohrer or Big Food and Superfoodz when choosing the Spirulina product because there are many products and suppliers that are not so keen on quality. The products we supply are always tested by a third party and free from contamination.
