Organic Spirulina Review

If you love smoothies you have to try out Organic Spirulina.


It's a new product to me. It's marked down on Amazon from $45.00 to $25.95.

It also comes with a PDF book full of recipes. I tried out their chocolate smoothie. We had breakfast before the light was out to take a decent photo, so this is from their PDF book:


Chocolate Smoothie:

Serves 1-2 people
  • 1/2 cup quick oats - cook and set aside.
  • Their recipe said 5 Tablespoons of fresh Spirulina powder, but I'd knock that down to 3. Ours was a little too green. We're a family used to greens.
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped dark chocolate.
  • 2 large frozen bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk (You can substitute with another kind of milk.)
Note: Put in the freezer for long enough to freeze up for an alternative to ice cream.

About:

 
Our Organic Spirulina Is great for the immune system. This is the time of year where people get sick. The product is filled with greens, and is nutrient-packed. 

You can use it on:
  • Smoothies
  • Juices 
  • Recipes 

Adding Spirulina to Your Diet Will Help:

Strengthen Your Immune System:

A very dense nutrient food. It works miracles in the body by helping to balance your pH and reduce Inflammation - which is the root of most disease. This nutritional content provides protection from colds, flus, allergens, other contractable illnesses… & even cancer.

Fight Aging and Free Radicals:

It has more antioxidant activity than 5 servings of fruits and vegetables and 3900% more beta carotene than carrots, packing a powerful antioxidant punch that promotes skin health and cell regeneration while providing protection from cell-damaging molecules absorbed by the body through pollution, poor diet, injury, or stress.

Optimize Your Health With Nature's Most Perfect Multivitamin:


With over 100 naturally occurring and bioavailable vitamins & nutrients, Organic Spirulina contains more than 60% protein and is a non-synthetic source of iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium, beta-carotine, B12, chlorophyll, phytonutrients, antioxidants and essential amino acids (GLA, Omega 3, 6 & 9's).

A Little Bit Goes a Long Way:

Spirulina is really dense. I added too much in our smoothie this morning. It was just too strong. 1 scoop will be plenty for a smoothie in our house. This is so healthy, and has such great antioxidants in it. I love that it helps boost your immune system. 

Spirulina contains more protein content than any other food source, and, it is biologically complete - containing all of the essential amino acids needed for human health. Spirulina is also the most planet friendly source of protein. It yields 20% more than soybeans with 25% of the water usage and is 5 times more energy efficient!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

It's really choc-full of health goodness! How does it taste? We use protein powder at home too and sometimes they taste too chalky!
