Lets face it- there are very few people in our modern world that would turn down the opportunity to have more energy. We all have those things in our lives that deplete our energy – stressful jobs, long journeys each day, giving our best to our families after a full day’s work, training to keep fit or compete, studying, growing, healing. What if there was something completely natural you could take with your breakfast or lunch to pick your energy up with no down side? What if you could put it in a smoothie, bliss balls or baking, or you could take a pill or capsule if it suited you better? Would you be interested in finding out more…..?
Spirulina is truly Nature’s original ‘superfood’- a word that is massively overused at the moment, to the point it has become associated with foods that don’t really fit the criteria or are loaded with synthetics masquerading as natural ingredients.
The Oxford English dictionary describes a superfood as “a nutrient-rich food considered to be especially beneficial for health and well-being”, while the Merriam-Webster defines it as “a super nutrient-dense food, loaded with vitamins, minerals, fibre, antioxidants and fatty acids.
Spirulina is the leader in the category! It is a blue green algae that is the most nutritious, concentrated wholefood know to man. Spirulina has been used to sustain life from such diverse environments as the ancient civilisations of the Aztecs, to NASA’s cutting edge food technology supporting astronauts on space missions.
Spirulina contains some of the highest density of proteins found in any food, offers more beta-carotene than carrots, more iron than raw spinach and more calcium than milk on a gram per gram basis. With the richest concentration of nutrients known in any food, grain or herb on earth, researchers believe it may just be the perfect food.
Spirulina lacks cellulose walls so it is very easily digested and absorbed. This is especially important to those whose digestion is compromised or for those recovering from illness. Within our body’s cells there is an energy powerhouse called mitochondria. Spirulina feeds the mitochondria which turbo boosts our energy and helps with healthy cell regeneration.
Spirulina is an immune regulating food. It helps to balance and stabilize the immune system, freeing up more of our metabolic energy for vitality, healing and absorbing nutrients. It builds a strong healthy foundation, so we are less vulnerable to invading bacteria and viruses.
Spirulina offers quick energy, without taxing the pancreas to balance our blood sugar levels, or triggering hypoglycaemia (low blood sugar).
Not all Spirulina is equal in quality- it depends on the country it is grown in an whether it is cultivated away from harmful pollutants.
