Spirulina is a supplement that has been around for quite some time. However, many people don’t understand all the potential benefits from this supplement. It’s a type of organism that grows in both fresh and saltwater. It’s a family of single-celled microbes. Generally, spirulina comes in a dry powder form, but you can also find it in drops or as pills.
Spirulina does pack many nutrients, which consist of the following – in a single tablespoon:
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin B2
- Vitamin B3
- Also, it contains magnesium potassium, and manganese
The potential benefits of spirulina are endless, but include:
- Antioxidant properties
- Anti-inflammatory properties
- Ability to lower “bad” LDL and triglyceride levels
- May reduce blood pressure
- Helps me control any seasonal allergies flare ups
- Possibly helping with muscle strength and endurance
Studies are still ongoing, but they do look promising, and some of these benefits are preventing oxidation of bad cholesterol, some studies show beneficial properties with cancer, and helping to prevent anemia, and possibly helping with muscle strength and endurance.
I do recommend, if you’re taking other
