The name ‘Spirulina’ hints at the spiral shape of this photosynthetic, filamentous, edible microbe. A single source of spirulina delivers more nutrients than any other single food stuff out there, making it a health and fitness enthusiasts best friend. Spirulina is 60-70% protein, is a dense source of B vitamins, iron, magnesium and other trace minerals including copper, zinc and magnesium. It also contains antioxidants such as beta carotene and vitamin E, as well as anti inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Consuming Spirulina either via the diet or as a supplement can support muscle growth and development, support cell integrity and health, as well as reduce inflammation in the muscle and surrounding tissue.
Spirulina can be seen on our Discount Supplements site or bought in its natural form from any good health store.
