Green Spirulina!

One of my favorite things to add into my blends is Spirulina.

What is Spirulina?

  • Spirulina is a blue-green microalga that is found in fresh and saltwater.
  • It is harvested, freeze-dried, then sold in tablet or powder form.
  • You can buy spirulina in nutrition stores or online such as Amazon.

Benefits of Spirulina

  • High in protein– One TBSP contains 6g of protein
  • Good source of iron– One TBSP contains about 4.3 mg of iron
  • Contains magnesium– One TBSP contains about 14 mg of magnesium (that is more than what you would get from 1/2 cup of spinach!)
  • Detoxifying! It binds to metal in the body, aiding in detoxification 🙂
