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


Interesting...


  • 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.


ALSO, OUR SOIL IS IODINE DEPLETED


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.
