I love Spirulina! (giveaway closed)

Spirulina Obsession

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!)

Superhero Smoothie 04

(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.

Superhero Smoothie 01

    Well you convinced me to try Truenutrition, I may have to give this a try! Thanks for the 25% off code. (though I wouldn’t mind winning some to try before I buy, lol). Have you tried the astaxanthin?

    I have been meaning to try Spirulina for so long! Considering how highly I regard your opinion, this is JUST the push I need! I had no idea that it was so easy to swallow–must admit that held me back. I was worried it would just taste… yucky!

  36. Shel@PeachyPalate

    I can’t enter as I’m in Ireland! But I did just buy Spirulina for the first time in powder form and now I’m putting off trying it for fear that the flavour will put me off! Do you find you have to mask it much? Ever tried it in an instant bake or pancakes?

    I subscribed and read about how much protein this packs along with the benefits to the whole body, but helping to prevent Type II diabetes and eye health – it truly is an amazing product.

    Shel (PeachyPalate) – I don’t mind the taste at all, so I don’t try too hard to mask it…but for people who don’t like it they should try the tablets…or else hide it in a smoothie. If you like sushi (the paper), you won’t mind this at all. I have tried it in protein pancakes and I really liked it that way!

    From the Nutrex site I learned that spirulina is good for eye health. I’m going to start taking it regularly as I have glaucoma (and will talk to my ophthalmologist about it next time I see him).

  64. Kristin

    I learned that evidence shows that Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica will support cardiovascular, eye and brain health, boost immunity, boost energy levels, support healthy skin and combat age related macular degeneration. All good things!

  71. Mandi

    I am a big fan of spirulina. I feel better when I take it. But I had never heard of Astaxanthin until I perused the site from here. My family really enjoys being outside and the “sunscreen like” factors for your energy are really interesting to me.

  72. tiffiany

    its gluten free

  73. Ajali

    I take this in powder form every morning in my lemon water. I did this intially to disquise the taste a bit, but now its just habit so I stick with it. It and chlorella are one of the best supplements to take to clean the blood thus boosting the immune system. No home should go without it.

  74. Charissa

    Ajali – I like the way you take it…I’ll have to try that! Thanks for sharing!

Leave a comment...I'd love to hear from you!
