What is Spirulina?
Naturally spiral shaped, aptly named Spirulina is a blue-green algae that is packed with nutrients. Spirulina contains plant and bacteria-like properties, giving it a boost on the nutritional front. It boasts an unprecedented amino acid content of over 60%, making it a competitive source of this protein-building nutrient alongside milk and meat. Plus, Spirulina contains tremendous antioxidants, amino acids, gamma linolenic acids, essential fatty acids, vitamins and trace minerals.
Because Spirulina contains an incredible dose of amino acids, Spirulina is an excellent nutritional supplement for strengthening muscles. Amino acids are required for protein, which is the primary nutrient component in muscle-building. Additionally, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals make Spirulina a great way to boost the immune system and combat free radicals that can cause disease. Spirulina is also a heart-healthy and brain-boosting food that helps supercharge the metabolism, keep bodily systems running smoothly and maintain balance of mental, physical and emotional health.
How to take Spirulina
Because Spirulina is an algae found in subtropical waters, Spirulina is at high risk of becoming contaminated with toxins that enter the water system. Therefore, not all Spirulina is equivalent when it comes to your health. Zokiva sources the purest Spirulina from non-contaminated sources to bring you the finest Spirulina Powder for your best self. Our Spirulina Powder is made without any fillers, binders or additives to give you 100% of the goodness that this superfood has to offer.
Although it can be stirred directly into a glass of water, most people enjoy Spirulina Powder in mixed fruit drinks and smoothies. Try a pure blend of tomato juice and carrot juice with Spirulina Powder to get your healthy fill of veggies for the day. Or try a berry fruit smoothie with Spirulina Powder for an extra blast of antioxidants. If you need a power pick-me-up in the middle of the day, try combining iron-rich spinach with creamy bananas, tangy pineapple and nutritious Spirulina Powder for a tropical twist.
You can also add Spirulina to other foods including cold salads like tabouleh, bean salad or a Mediterranean medley. Spirulina Powder makes a fantastic secret ingredient to green dips, such as guacamole or spinach dip. Trust us, your family will have no idea you’ve added something super nutritious to their favorite dip.
Because Spirulina is a powerful supplement, gradually add it to your diet. As you ramp up your Spirulina intake, we’re positive you will see amazing results.
