Spirulina Health Benefits

The infographic above from Dr. Axe’s website shows all the top benefits your body can experience from taking spirulina. As more and more research is being put into the spirulina algae, we’re learning so much about how it can benefit your body.

Spirulina is actually more than an alga, it’s actually called cyanobacteria, which acts as a natural probiotic.

It’s often an ingredient in green superfood vitamins or smoothie mixes, and it grows mostly in Mexico, many places in Africa and Hawaii.

In fact, the purest form of Spirulina that is best for your body is currently grown in Hawaii. Here are all of the benefits your body can experience from taking a daily dose of Spirulina:

Detoxes Heavy Metals

Chronic arsenic poisoning doesn’t sound like something an average person could get, but this illness is more common than you think. This occurs in areas where drinking water is laced with discarded arsenic. Studies have shown that taking Spirulina extract and zinc together can drain the body of heavy metals like arsenic by up to 47%. Now that’s impressive in anyone’s language.

Eliminating Candida

The surge in candida-related illness has been alarming over the past decade and much of it is related to our high-sugar, processed food diets. Spirulina has has been a shining light here too, as an effective antimicrobial agent, promoting the growth of healthy bacteria in the digestive tract and eliminating the overgrowth of unhealthy bacteria like Candida.

Prevents Cancer

A number of animal studies have shown that spirulina increases the presence of antibodies and immunity-boosting cells in the body. It also appeared in one study that Spirulina actually helped improve the body’s ability to fight off existing cancer cells.

Just as Spirulina can help with lowering blood pressure, the same substance had been shown to lower high cholesterol blood levels and prevent plaque buildup in the arteries.

Reduces Risk Of Stroke

Spirulina has also been proven to lower the risk of stroke in rabbits who were fed 5 percent Spirulina in their diets over 12 weeks. In fact, during this period they were even fed a high cholesterol diet, and improvement as much as a 48% reduced risk was seen.

Increases Energy
