All About Spirulina

Spirulina is a type of algae that has loads of nutrients, including minerals like iron, and also it is high in protein. It makes a great addition to the diet of vegetarians, but even omnivores should take it.

I was able to try this brand of Spirulina from BRI Nutrition, that you can buy here.

I started taking it a couple weeks ago and love it. Here are some benefits:
  • It contains all necessary amino acids
  • It is high in chlorophyll which helps cleanse the blood and detox the body
  • It contains iron so is good for pregnancy and also those who are anemic -- it offers a lot of iron but doesn't cause the constipation of other iron supplements
  • Some studies have shown it to be helpful with allergies
  • Spirulina may help remove heavy metals in the body
  • Possibly help with PMS
  • Reduces inflammation in the body
This is a superfood! (to use that term loosely, I know, everyone labels their product a "superfood"). I recommend you try it for a month to see how you feel.
