Organic Spirulina Powder
Organic Spirulina Powder is an edible type of micro algae that is grown salt water in many parts of the world, although it can grow in fresh water. It was once a food source of the Aztecs and the people of Chad, Africa and was commonly sold as dried cakes to make broth or as a puree. Today, Spirulina has many acclaimed health benefits and has become a popular nutritional supplement.
Health benefits of Spirulina
Spirulina is a great source of B-vitamins, especially B1 and Riboflavin, needed by the body to pump the energy cycle in our cells. It is a good source of the minerals iron and manganese and is a complete protein, which means it contains all the essential amino acids that we cannot make in our body and must be consumed through our diet. Spirulina is also a rich source of anti-oxidants that help to protect cells from damage as well as containing the vitamins C, D and E.
Some promising research shows that it can reduce heavy metals in the body, especially lead and arsenic and is a potent anti-microbial and anti-fungal. Studies show that it can reduce candida in the body, which is the most common cause of fungal infections worldwide.
Spirulina in the kitchen
Spirulina can be taken in a variety of ways and we recommend adding to your juice, smoothies, raw food balls, or sprinkled over green salads. More recently spirulina has been used making raw food cakes and slices.
