Over the years, I’ve reviewed a lot of super food supplements. Whether it’s VPX Coco Fit Coconut Water, Nutiva Organic Chia Seeds, or NOW Chlorella, there are a ton of natural and nutritional options on the market.
But spirulina powder may top my list of super foods. Not only has it been around for hundreds of years, but this supplement is a great addition to any healthy diet – so much so that NASA regularly includes it in their astronauts’ diet!
Spirulina is essentially a type of blue-green algae that’s found in warm lakes around the world, particularly in Africa and South America. When dried, it can be ground up into a powder and easily added to a number of other foods for its nutritional benefits.
This article reviews the primary benefits of adding spirulina powder to your diet. Trust me, you can’t go wrong with this one!
Benefits of Spirulina Powder
1. Rich in Vitamins & Minerals – Its main benefit is its high vitamin and mineral content, including calcium, iron, magnesium, manganese, zinc, potassium, thiamine, riboflavin, folic acid, and vitamins B12, C, D, and E. With the right combination of other nutritional food choices, spirulina powder can help you save some money on those multi-vitamins.
