Getting Your Greens Once Harvest is Over – Spirulina – Bluegreen Algae

In many parts of the country, homegrown gardens, farmer’s markets and other sources for organic fresh raw fruits and vegetables are gone for the season. While many grocery markets are now offering organic sources, the prices for off-season fruits and veggies can soar.

An easy and fast way to get your greens each day during the winter season is Spirulina. Natural and 100% vegetarian, Spirulina is a green superfood from bluegreen algae sources that promotes long life and immune health through its nutritional and antioxidant benefits.

Eating 1 serving of Spirulina greens a day is equivalent to 3 – 4 servings of common vegetables a day in terms of antioxidant content (beta-carotene).

Spirulina contains a variety of carotenoids, which work together as antioxidants, protecting us from the damage of free radicals. The two most important carotenoids are beta carotene (promotes health at the cellular level) and zeaxanthin (which promotes eye health).

Other benefits and nutrition include: easy-to-digest all-vegetable protein, good source of phytonutrients, source of the essential fatty acid GLA, and easy-to-absorb iron.

Spirulina comes in many forms, such as dry powder that can be mixed into water or fruit juices as a drink, or added to smoothies and shakes for nutritional benefit. It also is available in soft-gels, veggie-tabs, and capsules.

You can find it mixed with other ingredients for even more health benefits, such as digestive enzymes, probiotics, Chlorella, Barley Grass, Wheat Grass, Alfalfa and other natural greens for detoxification. So whether your need is for more greens in your diet, help with digestion problems or constipation, or ingredients to help fight yeast infection and other gut maladies, there is a formula just right for you.
