Holy Benefits

Hello Loves,
I have recently been doing so much research regarding veganism and benefits from different "Super Foods." This week I am focusing in on Coconut Oil and Spirulina. I am going to do a whole other post on Coconut Oil this week; the benefits, and many many uses. Today, we are going to focus on Spirulina and, what I have learned from reading about it. Just putting this out here now, I am not an expert nor, am I a doctor. I have read a few articles and, have tried Spirulina these benefits have been found in studies.
Benefits Of Spirulina:
  1. High In Many Nutrients:
  • Protein
  • Vitamin B (Thiamin)
  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
  • Copper
  • Iron
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Mangenese
It is known to be the most nutritious food on the Planet. Little Fact is that Spirulina became popular because NASA said it could be grown in space but, had already been used by the Aztecs.

2. Anti-inflammatory & Anti-Aging Properties
  • Protect Against Oxidative ( The combination of a substance with oxygen) damage
3. Can help to Reduce LDL & Triglyceride Levels
  • Lower Risk Of Heart Disease
4. Protects against cholesterol being oxidized
5. Protects against Cancer and Oral Cancer
6. Possible Reduction in Blood Pressure
7. Reduces Allergies
8. Protect against anemia
9. My improve muscle strength and endurance
10. Control Blood Sugar

The article that I pulled this information from I will link below. I thought that it is important for you all to know about all the benefits of Spirulina and, to act on it. I will be conducting a little test starting next Monday where, I will have a glass of water and then, a glass of water with Spirulina. I will continue to do this for two months and see if I show any improvement. After drinking the Spirulina today I felt energized and, overall felt better. For all of you that may not take it because of the taste I personal don't think it tastes like much but, you can always add it to your smoothie. I will not be passing up the opportunity to reap all of the benefits of this amazing "Super Food."
