Spirulina: The Ultimate Algae - Root Herbal

Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae. It has been around for billions of years and was used to nourish the Aztecs. It can be eaten in a variety of ways such as raw, dried, dried and ground into powder, as a liquid extract or in capsules. 

Spirulina is not new to the world of health food. In fact, humans have been consuming it for thousands of years, and it has become increasingly popular in recent times as scientific research has revealed its health benefits.

Spirulina powder is known for its immunity-boosting abilities. The powder is also rich in antioxidants, which help to fight free radicals and can even aid in weight loss and muscle gain. Spirulina contains chlorophyll, which helps to detoxify the body by binding to toxic heavy metals like lead and mercury, as well as pesticides and herbicides from our food supply.

A study published in the Journal of Applied Phycology found that spirulina could boost immune system function by about 16%. That’s not all! Spirulina is a good source of protein (containing up to 70%!) making it an excellent addition to any diet plan or meal replacement shake mix.

Important nutrients found in spirulina are protein, vitamin B1, B2 and B3, Copper, Iron and Magnesium. Protein plays an important role in the body as it helps build muscles tissue and aids in muscle growth. Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) helps to convert carbohydrates into energy as well as reduces fatigue or dizziness. Vitamin B2 also known as Riboflavin is vital for healthy skin and eyesight while vitamin b3 known as Niacin is essential for converting food into energy while boosting your immune system.

Copper helps to form red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout our bodies while iron maintains healthy levels of hemoglobin which allows the blood to transport oxygen to all parts of the body including brain cells supporting memory function thus preventing Alzheimer's disease or other kinds of dementia symptoms related to poor oxygenation.

Spirulina is what we call an "underdog" superfood—many people don't know much about spirulina or why they should eat it. The truth is that spirulina should be at the top of your list when choosing natural foods with high nutritional value! It's one of the most nutrient-rich foods on earth.
