Spirulina has been discovered in the lakes and waterways of Africa, Central America and South America. It is microscopic blue-green algae that contains the best concentration of functional nutrients ever known in any other food. It has the highest protein content with all the essential nutrients and amino acids without the dangerous carbohydrates or fats. It lowers blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels and it has positive effects on people suffering from type 2 diabetes mellitus. So if you need a weight loss, fight agains cholesterol or diabetes taking spirulina can make a big difference.
Spirulina has also cancer fighting ingredients and helps boost the immune system and I would recommend it to people who because of their busy lifestyle fail to eat a balanced meal or those who rely on fast or processed foods but also to vegetarians who must acquire protein from vegetables.If you are tired or mentally drained, spirulina is the right thing for you unlike caffeine, it is helping your body by providing nutrients.
