Spirulina has amazing nutritional characteristics. Its main ingredient is protein, which typically forms around 60-70% of the product. It contains all eight of the essential amino acids – those that our body cannot manufacture for itself and that we must obtain from our food – making it a useful protein source for vegetarians. This is reinforced by the presence of important vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B12 (often lacking in a vegetarian diet), Vitamin A, B-1, B-2, and B-6, Iron, Calcium and antioxidant compounds. Spirulina is also rich in other important phytonutrients, enzymes and trace elements. It provides Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, including Linoleic acid and Gamma-linolenic acid.
Production – How it’s made
Spirulina is produced organically on an island in the South China Sea using photosynthesis, the natural process by which plants absorb energy from sunlight. Batches of algae grow, multiplying naturally and rapidly in pools of pure water. They are harvested when they reach the required density. Once harvested, the Spirulina is dried and milled to powder.
So how do you take it?
Why not start off by adding half teaspoon to water or fresh juice in the morning for the first week, increasing to 1 teaspoon. Try making a Spirulina & Pineapple Smoothie which compliments perfectly for a wonderful vitamin packed drink . Please note you can either blitz in the blender or I put a teaspoon in a glass and gently mix adding either Coconut water or fresh carrot & apple as well. By incorporating Spirulina into your daily diet, you know you are giving your body all the nutrients and vitamins that it needs & deserves to keep your health in tip top condition.
