Spirulina: The Healing Superfood

Meat-eaters always assume that vegetarians and vegans never get enough protein.  That's bogus!  We don't need as much as you may think and meat-eaters always get WAY too much.  My favorite source of protein comes from wholefood sources, a plant that can nourish the body by delivering most of the protein you need to live.  This superfood is Spirulina.

It contains all 8 of the essential amino acids the body needs, which makes it a complete protein choice.  It has vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, E, and K and even provides all the minerals, cell salts, phyto-nutrients, enzymes and an abundance of chlorophyll to keep you as healthy a a horse.  Spirulina is 65-71 percent complete protein compared to beef, which is only 22 percent, and lentils, which is only 26 percent.

So all this negative talk about vegans being protein deficient is just a fabrication.  We get just the right amount we need, when we take it from healthy sources.  After all, why get your protein from animals when large amounts of it only contribute to a build-up of uric acid in the system, and that's what leads to osteoporosis, gout, arthritis, lack of energy, acid body chemistry, and aging. 

Spirulina Benefits:
  • Being rich in beta carotene 
  • Helps maintain healthy vision
  • Rich in Iron (a common deficiency)
  • Easily absorbed and digested
  • Stimulates the production of healthy flora in the digestive tract
  • Detoxifies and cleanses body of harmful toxins
  • Supports immune system function, blood sugar & kidney function
  • Reduces cholesterol
  • Great source of vitality and life energy
  • Fights the aging process
  • Curbs appetite and promotes weight loss
  • Improves allergies and respiratory function 

Spirulina is one the most nutritious, complete, efficient and effective foods on Earth.  But, not all spirulina is created equal.  Spirulina comes from the ocean, so it's important that it's as pure as the water it's drawn from.  It has to be very very carefully processed so it doesn't loose its potency through high-heat drying procedures.

What I appreciate about Healthforce Spirulina Manna is that it's made without the use of pesticides and processed at very low temperatures to retain enzymes and other heat-sensitive elements.  It comes in a glass jar, not plastic bottle, with oxygen absorbers that create a vacuum inside,  in order to protect 100% of the nutrients.  This spirulina is organic and raw and of the highest quality. 

Lastly, spirulina works exceptionally well in skin care too!  Taken by mouth, it fights age spots, acne, eczema, psoriasis and rashes because it cleans and removes toxins from the blood.  Used topically it calms down irritated skin and removes redness, leaves skin soft, clean and healthy.  Taken regularity, it promotes a a glowing complexion as well as stronger hair and nails.  Spirulina Rocks!
