Blue spirulina: it’s bright blue, it’s healthy, and it’s the latest trending food! Health and fitness enthusiasts around the world are posting this picture-perfect algae all over social media, especially in the form of smoothie bowls. Because of its unique, enthralling color, blue spirulina smoothie bowls have been nicknamed the “Mermaid Smoothie Bowl,” or the “Vital Proteins Blue Bowl.” Blue-green algae gives the bowl a visually aesthetic hue; however, the color is not all that’s appealing. Vital Proteins Blue Bowls also rich in protein, antioxidants, and minerals.
What Is Blue Spirulina?
Blue spirulina is one of the top superfoods in the world today. It’s an alluring blue-green algae with outstanding health benefits. It is loaded with chlorophyll which helps alkalize your body to healthy pH levels. It’s also rich in B vitamins, Vitamin K, and minerals like zinc and magnesium. The algae’s nutrients guard your immune system and strengthen your body’s systems. When it comes to protein and amino acids, blue spirulina is one of the highest plant-based sources of protein. Vegans and vegetarians alike have made blue spirulina their go-to for high quality, plant-based protein. Additionally, spirulina is much more than an algae; it’s a cyanobacteria, a probiotic that will significantly boost your digestive system. Moreover, blue spirulina will encourage the growth of other probiotics and good microbes in your gut. Blue spirulina is typically found in Africa, Mexico, and Hawaii but now you can get it at any Juice It Up! in a visually stunning Vital Proteins® Blue Bowl.
There are three main reasons you should make the Vital Proteins® Blue Bowl a regular part of your diet:
1. Detoxify Your Body
Because so many foods are sprayed with pesticides, we get more arsenic in our diet than any other toxic metal. High levels of arsenic in the body has been linked to cause liver failure, kidney degeneration, and neurological diseases like dementia. Medical research has proven that spirulina and its high antioxidant properties can significantly detoxify your body of arsenic so that you are protected from its consequences. If you like eating fish, spirulina should be a regular part of your diet since many types of fish tend to be high in mercury. Additional medical journals, such as the Journal of Chemosphere, claim that spirulina helps guard the body against radiation poisoning. This means that Vital Proteins® Blue Bowls can assist in protecting your body from radiation emitted by cell phones, microwaves, and other sources.
2. Support Weight Control and Weight Loss
Many people don’t realize that hunger cravings often come because the body is looking to meet its dietary needs. When the body intakes poor-quality foods, the brain triggers the appetite to bridge the nutritional gap. Thus, overeating regularly begins with nutrient deficiency. You body requires essential nutrients like essential fatty acids, zinc, and magnesium. Fortunately, spirulina is one of the most nutrient-rich foods on the planet, and it only contains 20 calories per serving. By eating healthy foods like spirulina, you provide your body the raw materials it needs to avoid hunger triggers and keep your appetite at bay. When this happens, you’ll be less tempted to eat low-quality foods, and you’ll feel much better about life. Moreover, spirulina contains 1-phenylalanine, an amino acid that has been linked to appetite suppression. This can significantly help your body with both weight management and weight loss.
3. Strengthen Your Life with this Nutritional Powerhouse
This superfood smoothie bowl doesn’t just have a refreshing taste; it has a refreshing effect. A single tablespoon (7 grams) of spirulina powder has 4 grams of protein, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, copper, iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese, omega-6 fatty acids, omega-6 fatty acids, essential amino acids, and more. Gram for gram, blue spirulina may actually be the most nutrient-dense food on the planet. If you’re someone who struggles with fatigue, try having a Vital Proteins® Blue Bowl for breakfast or lunch to give your body a wakeup call. Spirulina has been shown to help lower cholesterol, balance blood pressure levels, fight diabetes, and boost energy levels.
