Better Than Cherry Spirulina Smoothie

As a teenager, my orthodontist created a mold of my teeth using seaweed – disgusting.  I seriously thought I was going to die from gross-ness.  Who in their right mind would voluntarily put seaweeds or algae in their mouth by choice?  Yes, I was once a seaweed/algae pessimist.

My seaweed/algae pessimism came to an end when I began researching foods that contained high levels of iron and iodine – essential nutrients for the body.  The health benefits shocked me – I had no idea that something so disgusting could be so amazing.

My favorite ways to consume Spirulina is in my green smoothies, Green Vibrance Protein Powder, and Spirulina tablets.

Spirulina is a blue-green algae that is cultivated from oceans and lakes.  Good for the brain, heart, and immune system, Spirulina supports the immune system, healthy inflammatory responses, and protects against oxidation.  The high iodine content found in Spirulina supports a healthy thyroid and provides relief to those struggling with iodine deficiencies.

Spirulina has also been used to successfully help individuals struggling with depression, asthma, hypertension, digestive problems, skin disorders, fatigue,  stress, and attention deficit disorder.  Spirulina is often considered a complete protein and contains more protein that soy, more iron than beef, and more vitamin A than carrots.  Spirulina is a super-food that your body needs.
