Spirulina is incredibly good for you.  It is loaded with nutrients that can have powerful effects on your body and brain. It is an organism that is grown in either fresh or salt water, also known as blue green algae. It may be the single most nutrient-dense food on earth! So, what are the benefits?….

*It is packed with vitamins, minerals, omega 3’s & 6’s, and is a complete protein! Gram for gram,  spirulina may literally be the single most nutritious food on the planet.

*It’s packed with anti-inflammatory properties which can ease pain and soreness throughout the body

*Spirulina is also loaded with anti-oxidants which is what keeps us young.

*As it turns out, spirulina has been shown to have beneficial effects on cholesterol . Studies have shown that spirulina can lower triglycerides and LDL cholesterol, and sometimes may raise HDL (the “good”) cholesterol.

*Some evidence suggests that spirulina can have anti-cancer properties, especially oral cancers.

*Some studies have shown that spirulina supplementation can enhance endurance, and one study shows that it can increase muscle strength.
