Spirulina is a blue-green algae rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, such as B-vitamins, beta-carotene, vitamin E, magnesium, zinc and iron.
We can find it in tablets, capsules or powder, and these are just some of its positive effects on our health:
Strengthen the body
Spirulina improves metabolism, strengthens the immune system, regulates blood sugar, cholesterol and triglycerides.
Recovery after surgery
Spirulina helps to repair damaged cells during surgery or radiation therapy. It works by improving immunity, and thus cellular regeneration.
Increase in iron
Spirulina iron has a high body utilization index compared to other pharmaceuticals used for this purpose.
Good for weight loss
By adding spirulina to your meals, you can achieve fast and significant results when it comes to weight loss.
From spirulina you can make a face mask. Make a powder of spirulina powder mixed with water if you have oily face, and if your skin is dry, use yogurt.
Which people should be careful?
Spirulina has a high concentration of plant proteins, so people with kidney problems must carefully consult a doctor before starting to take it. The tablets are more practical to use because the spirulina powder has a taste that not everyone can easily tolerate.
