I’m a huge believer in your beauty ritual being just as much about what you put in your body as what you put on your body. That’s why spirulina has been a part of my regimen for the last few years. I was first introduced to this blue-green algae by my guru as part of my healing process, and I’ve never stopped using it since. Our skin and hair is a direct reflection of our inner health, and the body doesn’t provides nutrients to skin, hair and nails until AFTER they have been distributed to the rest of your body.
Incredibly high in protein and nutrients, spirulina is a huge boost to any plant-based diet. This potent superfood contains so many of the nutrients our bodies need to survive and thrive. Spirulina possesses remarkable nutritional value that results in incredible health benefits, and is loaded with proteins, vitamins, minerals, fatty and amino acids which benefit skin and hair. I’ve listed some of these benefits below:
Seriously! That’s a lot of benefits!
I use the powdered form of spirulina, but it’s available in pill form as well. I usually just mix 1 tablespoon in 16 ounces of green juice. You can also cook with it and incorporate it into your diet in many ways. The scent and taste can be very strong, so find which way is best for you and your palette. Beauty is pain though; so don’t let the taste scare you away!
I get my spirulina here, as it’s the least processed spirulina and has been dried in the sun. It’s shipped from India so shipping takes a while, but I can’t live without this potent superfood! By the way, I have not been paid or offered anything. I’m just sharing my personal preference.
Have you tried this potent superfood? If so, what was your experience? Let me know!
