Spirulina is a freshwater alga that gets dried and ground into a powder. It is high in protein and a good source of antioxidants. Spirulina is high in B-vitamins, iron, essential amino acids, and other nutrients. Many people call it the “most nutrient dense food on the planet.” Spirulina contains almost 26 times the calcium in milk. This superfood is a natural source of essential fatty acid gamma linolenic acid (GLA) which has gotten a lot of attention recently for its anti-inflammatory properties. The body normally produces this on its own and it is rare for any food, especially something natural to have GLA content.
Spirulina may help with balancing blood sugar, and even help individuals with diabetes. Spirulina may also help individuals with allergies, mainly because it reduces inflammation that leads to nasal congestion. In studies, those who took spirulina noticed a reduction in nasal congestion, itching, and sneezing. Another big benefit of consuming spirulina is that it can help remove heavy metals out of the body by binding with them. It does the same with other toxins in the body and evidence has shown it may also bind with radioactive isotopes and may help with the effects of radioactivity exposure or radiation therapy. Spirulina is found in SOUL.
