    Question Spirulina questions

    Shop Now
    Does anyone incorporate spirulina into their eating? If so, why? Also, do you have recommendations as to what I should look for when looking for a brand? Should I take it in measured capsules? By the tea or tablespoon full? Do you think there are no benefits and it's just hype?

    Thanks in advance for any info.

    It is a very expensive form of protein for vegans. Can't see any other reason to touch it
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    This. If you are a vegan, it would do you a lot of good but if you are an omnivore, I don't see the need.

    I'm reminded of the quote 'Wheatgrass is only a superfood if you're a cow'.

    Agreed, if you are a vegan it's a source of protein and DHA. If not, skip it. It's also well known for causing autoimmune reactions and drain your pocketbook!
