In case you haven’t heard of them, Siprulina and Blue-Green Algae are at the top of the superfood food chain...

They are loaded with more good stuff than just about any other superfood. They have been used for ages–they are an ancient form of nutrition coveted by the Aztecs and the indigenous people of the Sahara in Africa. Extraordinary in their ability to revive your health, adding these two wonder foods to your diet will quite simply change your life.

Blue-green algae and spirulina, which is a specific form of blue-green algae, are found in nature growing in the still, alkaline waters of lakes and ponds. They are natural foods that have existed since life began.

SUPERFOODS: SPIRULINA AND BLUE-GREEN ALGAE

Blue-green algae and spirulina are rich in vitamins A, C, E and the B-complex vitamins, including vitamins B12 and B6. Because these vitamins are packaged in their natural form, the body recognizes them and uses them immediately, making them far superior to synthesized modern vitamin supplements. These foods are rich in natural minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron and they are also an excellent source of trace minerals that are commonly lacking in diets today.

Spirulina and Blue-green algae exhibit antioxidant properties which help the body in eliminating of toxins and free-radicals. They help the body fight disease and stay healthy. They are cancer fighters – in fact, preliminary studies point to spirulina as a natural anti-cancer agent. Phycocyanin gives spirulina its unique blue-green color and likely its anti-cancer properties. This specialized blue pigment is ONLY found in blue-green algae.

Blue-green algae and spirulina are super rich in protein, including all the essential amino acids. Spirulina produces twenty times more protein per acre versus soybeans, making it a perfect protein source for vegetarians and vegans.

Spirulina is rich in gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an essential fatty acid which aids in the health of the joints and heart. It is also helpful for specific issues like weight loss and PMS.

Blue-green algae helps to balance the flora in your intestines, which aids digestion and fights cancers.

Spirulina is known for its ability to curb the appetite and stabilize blood sugar levels.

Studies have shown spirulina’s amazing ability to reduce inflammation in the body.

The best part? Despite of their nutritional punch, blue-green algae and spirulina pack next to no calories! This makes it super easy to incorporate these superfoods into your diet without ruining your weight loss plans.
