Spirulina isa type of cyanobacteria that has been growing naturally in our environment for millions of years.
It was a food source for the Aztecs in the 16th century. Later, in the 1960s and 70s, it was rediscovered and studied by a number of researchers. Today this blue-green algae has earned fame as a protein rich superfood with production in several countries. Besides nutritional supplements spirulina is used in cosmetics and even for water purification.
So what is making it so popular? Here are five reasons why you should consider addingSpirulina & Chlorella to your diet today!
Spirulina is an excellent source of protein, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals such as calcium, magnesium, zinc and selenium. In fact it is said that these microalgae have a higher nutrient density than cabbage, spinach and even broccoli!
By adding spirulina to your diet you can easily optimize your intake of nutrients and give your dishes, drinks and deserts a healthy upgrade within seconds.
Spirulina can be added to smoothies, juices and other cold beverages. You can also add spirulina powder to energy balls, sprinkle it over your salad and soups. The options are endless!
In order to balance out the flavour (it takes some time to get used to it) we recommend combining it with sweet fruits like bananas, pineapple, and mango.
You can also mix it to sweet fruit juices and turn them into a healthy green vitamin drink in an instant.

You can also add hemp seeds or try variations with coconut milk or berries. Mix all ingredients in a blender. You can always adjust the thickness by adding more or less liquid.
Spirulina is considered a powerful antioxidant. The main active component is called phycocyanin, which is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
The antioxidant activities of spirulina have been demonstrated in various preclinical trials. Researchers from Japan discovered that phycocyanin protects the liver and the kidneys and activates the immune system.

Do you read the labels of your supplements in detail?
When buying supplements, many people just quickly skim the list of ingredients without really understanding what's actually behind them.
We admit: The list of ingredients in dietary supplements can be very hard to understand. What many consumers don't know is that supplements from some brands contain many unnecessary ingredients in addition to vitamins and minerals.
Avoid supplements with a long list of "inactive ingredients" on the label. Because some of these additives can be harmful to your health.
We explain what exactly additives are and why they are sometimes found in supplements. Learn which additives you should avoid no matter what, so you know what ingredients to look out for the next time you buy.
