Spirulina powder is packed with beneficial nutrients which strengthen the immune system, reduce the risk of allergies and provide energy, vitality and balance. In addition, spirulina is one of the alkalising superfoods which helps regulate acidity levels and support kidney function.
About 60% of spirulina’s dry weight is protein, which is essential for growth and cell regeneration. It is a good replacement for fatty and cholesterol-rich meat and dairy products in one’s diet. Every 10 grams of spirulina can supply up to 70% of the minimum daily requirements for iron, and about three to four times of minimum daily requirements for vitamins A (in the form of beta carotene), B complex, D,and K. By itself, it does not contain vitamin C, but it helps maintain this vitamin’s potency.
Use it in smoothies, guacamole dip or sprinkle it on salad. It’s taste is similar to seaweed.
