What is SPIRULINA Powder?

SPIRULINA POWDER
Spirulina is a vivid blue-green algae that commonly grows in freshwater lakes and ponds. It is considered a complete protein, as it contains an ideal balance of all essential amino acids, and spirulina powder is immensely more digestible than other rich protein sources like red meat and even soy.
Its whopping protein content isn’t the only asset that gives spirulina superfood status–it is loaded with vitamins A through E, iron, potassium and calcium. All it takes is one to two teaspoons per day, mixed into virtually any food or liquid, to add a major boost of protein, vitamins and minerals to your diet. Spirulina’s outstanding nutritional value is undisputed, and human research into its other properties is ongoing. But extensive lab and animal research suggests a broad range of possible spirulina health benefits:
Lower cholesterol and blood pressure
Anti-inflammatory effects
Allergy relief
Improved recovery from stroke
Prevention and treatment of hay fever
Promising clinical research indicating that spirulina powder may boost production of antibodies has fueled hope that this amazing algae may even combat cancer and HIV.
