A blue-green edible algae that has a spiral-like shape and is called spirulina is one of the most nutrient-dense foods found on earth. Even astronauts take this algae to space.
What is spirulina?
Spirulina is an algae that is one of the most nutrient-dense foods found on earth. Where it contains so many vitamins and minerals, it even gets the following with astronauts into space.
Spirulina has been around for over 3.5 billion years and has been consumed long before we discovered its components and how it works. Why spirulina is classified as "Superfood" is due to its nutrient density which has several healthy properties.
In recent years, it has become increasingly popular as more and more studies show its health benefits.
What is Spirulina good for?
There are studies that show, among other things, that Spirulina:
- Is packed with protein, vitamins, minerals, omega 6 and omega 3.
- Powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties
- May lower "bad" LDL and triglyceride levels
- May lower blood pressure
- Helps the body cleanse itself of toxins and heavy metals
A link to the studies can be found at the bottom of this post.
How to use spirulina?
It is up to each one how to use spirulina. It is okay to drink it from a glass of water, but spirulina can have a special taste that not everyone likes. Some have no problem at all with the taste while others think it tastes like "a cold soup in the lake". So if you are a beginner, it is perfectly fine to mix it in different types of food and drink. For example, you can make a smoothie that contains spirulina. At the end of this post you will find smoothie tips that you can use to make really good spirulina smoothies.
Start with a 1 teaspoon to see how your stomach reacts and then step up gradually when you feel you want to do so. We recommend that you take 1-2 teaspoons.
