SPIRULINA ~ The most complete food! Seaweed / algae benefits

Updated: Dec 29, 2023

We take 2-5 tabs most days

Algaes are super dark green and reknown as one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet!

Some examples: spirulina, kelp, dulse, chlorella, nori, etc.

How can we eat them?

  • I like to take the tabs like a little vitamin. (shown above)

  • Eat sushi (the wrap is seaweed), miso soup.

  • Health food stores and the natural section at grocery stores sell shakers that you can sprinkle on your meal, they will contain herbs and spices.

  • Buy the sheets and add them into cooked meals or crumble them on top of a salad.

Algae nutrient benefits:

  • Nourishes the thyroid / boosts energy levels

  • Hormone balance

  • Clear skin / liver detoxification

  • Nourishes blood health / heart health


  • Algae contains greater than 50% protein by weight ~ from meat eaters to vegans we all benefit from a variety of protein sources to ensure our body has the ability to convert all the amino acids needed for optimal functioning.

  • Contains numerous vitamins including B12, iron, and vitamin D

  • A dense source of chlorophyll & magnesium- that explains the dark green colour. Chlorophyll is a beneficial 'detoxifier' (meaning it supports our liver and evacuation processes), skin & blood builder, a natural deodorant.

  • A balance of minerals including iodine ~ sea water naturally contains iodine and other minerals. Iodine is the mineral that fuels our metabolism, through the thyroid gland.


Our soil has become depleted through mechanical & non-organic agriculture, many of us live far from the ocean and to top it all off, we eat refined foods that are void of a natural mineral balance. Sea veggies and mineral-dense sea salt can help to provide our bodies with minerals we would otherwise have no access to in our everyday foods.
