More about spirulina

Spirulina is thought to have been a food source for the Aztecs back in the 16th Century and was made popular again when NASA proposed growing it in space as a food for astronauts. Spirulina has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, supports heart health and helps with energy levels, particularly if you’re feeling fatigued or run down. It’s also used as a detoxing agent and to increase mental alertness. It really is a superfood.

What the studies say

Studies have shown that spirulina assists in maintaining normal triglycerides and cholesterol levels. It’s also been shown to assist with regulating blood pressure within normal ranges and even regulates blood sugar.
