The Power of Spirulina
Once found in Aztec dishes, in a matter of years Spirulina has made a name for itself with both the United Nations and NASA. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, known commonly as NASA, executed detailed research and now states that you can achieve the nutritional value of 1000kg of fruits and vegetables with just 1kg of Spirulina. It is clearly, therefore, an ideal Superfood, whether you’re content to reside on Earth or an astronaut preparing for take-off. Additionally, it’s being grown in poverty-struck areas of Africa to help supplement inadequate diets. The UN frequently works with humanitarian organisations to deliver the benefits of Spirulina supplementation to children suffering from malnourishment, and recommends its use as a tool against world hunger. With almost unbelievable amounts of vegan protein, and two world-renowned organisations promoting its use, nothing could be considered more of a Superfood.

And, containing all eight essential amino acids, it’s a complete source, so that you have all you need for your body to synthesise proteins. These elements all work in tandem to give you the sensation of bodily strength, support and sustenance from the inside out.
