Powder which has more antioxidants, iron and vitamins than most vegetables

The powder in question is in fact “spirulina” which is called “miracle powder of the sea”. It’s by no means surprise that it’s full of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.

It’s very much used by vegans and vegetarians because it’s very rich on proteins.

Why is this the case?

As many experts tell us, it’s because of cyanobacteria or a blue-green algae.  Cyanobacteria can be found almost anywhere nowadays. It’s present in oceans, damp soil, rocks with moisture on them, fresh water etc. A large amount of cyanobacteria which is for commercial use is extracted from Hawaii and parts of south America.

What form does it come in? It’s sold in pills or powder. Also it can be found in pure form or sometimes it’s combined with some other ingredients.


In fact, lots of them. As mentioned previously it’s very rich on proteins – almost 60% and vitamin B-12 as well. No wonder it’s a great alternative for vegans to substitute meat proteins.

Other nutrients present include: Vitamin A, iron, antioxidants, potassium, magnesium, calcium, zinc, selenium and many more. In fact the abundance of these makes it richer than many fresh fruits.

In turn, all these have a very positive effect on the human body.

Allergies are reduced.

It normalizes cholesterol levels.

Reduces risk of cancer.

Normalizes blood pressure.

It has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.

Boosts the immune system.

How to consume it:

Depends on the form you have it in. If it’s a pill, it’s pretty self-explanatory. If it’s powder, just start with 1 tea spoon adding to your favorite smoothie. Though its taste is pretty strong, so maybe it’s best to start with small amounts and gradually increase as you get used to it.

Bear in mind that it’s sold with flavor attached to it. Protein powder, so this can be an option for you as well.
