Spirulina is probably one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. It is an excellent source of iron and other vital minerals, but it also provides a complete protein profile and essential fatty acids. Its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and immunostimulating effects have been confirmed in multiple studies. Spirulina can promote heart health, aid in exercise performance and recovery, help balance the gut microbiome, and stabilize blood sugar. This powerhouse supplement also gives you a natural energy boost.
A blue-green cyanobacteria, or algae, spirulina was consumed by Aztecs and has been touted by scientists as a potential outer-space meal replacement because it is so packed with nutrients. But spirulina has unique properties even among superfoods. For example, one study showed that spirulina decreases both the spread of the flu and the risk of death from flu viruses. Furthermore, when consumed with a probiotic, both the spirulina and the probiotic are more effective. As a final advantage, spirulina is more sustainable and environmentally friendly than almost any other source of nutrition, requiring minimal land and resources to produce. It might be the super-est superfood of them all.
