Foods that have a positive impact on our health are called superfoods. The vast majority are of plant origin, but some contain animal extracts.
Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) has added spirulina to this list.
This spiral-shaped, blue cyanobacteria is notable for its high protein content and provision of eight essential amino acids.
In addition, it contains lipids, carbohydrates, vitamins, trace elements and minerals. All of these provide the body with energy to combat physical and mental fatigue. Its vitamin B6 improves digestion, its magnesium promotes a sense of well-being, and tritropin enhances serotonin production.
On the other hand, the presence of iron fights anemia, protects the heart and regulates tension, helps increase good cholesterol.
At the same time, it is a strong antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties that helps the immune system while creating a feeling of satiety.
Spirulina can be purchased in different forms, with capsules or tablets being good options for easier ingestion.
