Pond Scum! WTF is that?!
If you haven't heard of Spirulina yet- you've probably heard of it's street name. "Pond Scum"
Spirulina is a natural algae (cyanbacteria) powder that is incredibly high in protein and a good source of antioxidants , B-vitamins and other nutrients. When harvested correctly from non-contaminated ponds and bodies of water, it is one of the most potent nutrient sources available. It is largely made up of protein and essential aminoacids , and is typically recommended to vegetarians due to its high natural iron content.
The high concentration of protein and iron also makes it ideal during pregnancy , after surgery , or anytime the immune system needs a boost!
🍃Studies show that spirulina may be especially helpful in balancing blood sugar
🍃Other studies show that it not only lowers blood sugar but may also lower HbA1c, which is a long term marker of blood sugar levels.
🍃Spirulina can bind with heavymetal in the body and help remove them.
🍃It is also extremely high in Chlorophyll which helps remove toxins from the blood and boost the immune system.
