The supplement world can become easily overwhelming, before you know it your spending more money on pills than you are on food. By adding spirulina to your diet you can easily keep your supplement regime to a minimum and assure that you are getting mega doses of nutrition to support your energy and a healthy waistline. This blue-green algae will not only replenish your body of iron, calcium, magnesium, Vit C, D, B’s, and so many more, but will also remove toxins from your blood and boost your immunity.
Spirulina And Weight Loss:
Our body’s natural defense mechanism is to store toxins in our fatty tissues as a way to dilute them from our blood and organs. Spirulina does such a fabulous job at alkalizing the blood that it allows our body to feel safe enough to further detoxify by removing toxins stored in our tissues. Healthy weight loss only happens when the body feels safe enough to “let go”.
Spirulina And Energy:
This green goddess powder will boost your energy in numerous ways.
#1) By supplying your body with mega doses of B vitamins, magnesium, iron and potassium (the perfect energy combo).
#2) One of the number 1 causes of extreme fatigue is caused by an overload of toxins. Spirulina does such a great job at removing toxins which is why spirulina will work wonders at boosting energy.
Powder Or tablets?
ALWAYS CHOOSE POWDER. If you’re ever given the chance to choose powder over tablet, choose powder. Just think about how the tablets are being processed. Tablets typically have binders and fillers to preserve the formula and to keep them bound, which are toxins themselves. Plus if you have any digestive issues there’s a big chance that your body won’t be able to fully breakdown the tablet and absorb much at all.
Does It Taste Good?
I’m not going to lie, this magically nutritious blue-green algae is not very tasteful, however, I’m sure you’ve taken back a shot or two of tequila in the past; you managed to get that down the hatch so I have no doubt that you’ll be able to do the same with this. The benefits outweigh the poor taste a million to one, so suck it up buttercup 😉
My personal favorite combination is mixing 1 tsp of spirulina with a few ounces of chocolate almond milk. The rich creamy texture does a great job at masking the taste; orange juice works pretty good too. One thing I highly recommend not doing is adding a full daily dose to your smoothie, the taste is so potent that it will completely take over any blend you have going on.
One of my all time favorite brands is Trophic’s. Trophics’ blend has both spirulina and chlorella, which is another blue-green algae with major heavy metal detoxifying properties. I normally suggest sticking to the pure stuff, but this blend in particular has a list of ingredients that’s short and sweet. Prairie Naturals is another great company, a super clean source who supports fair trade. Aside from these two, most spirulina that comes from Hawaii are typically good as well. Whatever you do, make sure it’s organic, as others can have nitrate compounds as additives.
Try out this superfood for yourself and see what it has to offer you.
To Your Health!
