ICONFIT Spirulina Powder. Spirulina is one of the most sought-after dietary supplements today as it is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and healthy nutrients. Spirulina biomass grows in water and it is mostly pure protein. Spirulina has a very high protein content of up to 70% and contains relatively little carbohydrates and fat.
It is especially beneficial for weight loss because it is high in nutrients but low in calories. Spirulina also promotes good digestion, which is very important during a diet. In a study conducted in 2014, very good results were achieved with 4 grams of spirulina per day in weight loss and digestive health.
Scientific studies with spirulina have also achieved good results in lowering blood glucose levels. It is an important discovery for diabetics for whom high blood sugar levels can be dangerous. Scientific studies on dietary cholesterol have also achieved great results in lowering the “bad” LDL cholesterol levels. The detoxifying properties of spirulina are well-known and supported by a study conducted in 2016 which found that spirulina was effective in lowering the levels of arsenic, fluoride, tin and mercury in the body.
INSTRUCTIONS: Mix 1–2 teaspoons into your meal, smoothie or other drink daily. Spirulina has quite a strong taste so it is recommended to mix it into a larger amount of food/smoothie. INGREDIENTS: Spirulina powder (Arthrospira platensis).
