Spirulina – The Blue Green Algae Super Food

May 27, 2017

What is spirulina?
It is a blueish green coloured fresh water algae. The best way to use it is in powder form. It can be consumed by itself or mixed in your daily foods to increase their health quotient. 

Health benefits
Two teaspoons of powdered spirulina contains just 15 calories and three grams of protein—n early half the amount of protein packed in one egg. It is best to pair spirulina with other protein-rich foods like whole grains, beans and eggs, to get the essential amino acids required for tissue growth and enhance brain functioning. The super food is also a good source of copper. A tablespoon of dried spirulina contains 47 per cent of the recommended daily intake of copper, according to the NYU Langone Medical Center. Copper helps make collagen that holds tissues together and is also used by body to make the pigment melanin, found in eyes, skin and hair. One tablespoon of spirulina contains two milligrams of iron, which represents 11 per cent of the iron intake recommended for women.. Iron helps fuel the metabolism.

How to use it?
The powdered form can be directly added to drinks namely smoothies, lattes, or mixed with ingredients in foods like sushi and baked goods.
