I’m always going on about spirulina and how much I love it. I take it (or some form of it) every day. I’ll take it in a tablet form or else put the powder in a smoothie, mix it with grapefruit segments, or add it to juice. Ever since I’ve started taking it some months ago I’ve noticed
awesome benefits…and now I’m a lifelong spirulina addict.
In case you don’t know much about spirulina, here are some fabulous facts about it:
- It’s considered to be one of the world’s most powerful superfoods
- It’s ridiculously high in protein – its 60-65% protein (compared to say fish, which is up to 35% protein)
- It’s very high in chlorophyll – which builds healthy blood, promotes better circulation, and helps reduce inflammation – so basically it helps everything…I think of chlorophyll as liquid energy
- Boosts energy
- Heals your body
- Helps you deal with cravings – less cravings for junk food
- Boosts immunity
- Detoxes your body (even helps with weight loss!)
(my favourite brand from Nutrex Hawaii)
Why I like it?
Once I started taking it several months ago, I haven’t had as much as a cold, my immunity is definitely stronger. I’ve noticed an increase in energy. My body is more balanced and even my skin is better (spirulina is nature’s beauty vitamin!). I just feel better.
Plus, call me crazy, but I also just love the colour…the deep, rich aqua shade of green…it makes such a pretty smoothie. I often add spinach to my smoothie too and then they become even greener…what can I say? I like green.
Because I’m obviously obsessed with this superfood, I was talking to the good folks at Nutrex Hawaii the other day where we finalized me becoming their first ambassador! I’m so excited because I’m passionate about spirulina and I’m glad this will allow me to share it more with people.
