Organic Spirulina Review
Organic Spirulina is a great green powder. Being very similar to Chlorella, Spirulina is also a single celled nutrient dense algae that’s power packed with health. We’ll spell out a few differences between Chlorella and Spirulina before moving on. Chlorella has the highest content of chlorophyll in any food. Spirulina has a high chlorophyll content, but not as high as Chlorella. Spirulina on the other hand contains all 9 of the essential amino acids that the body needs, a huge concentration of antioxidants, and lots of Vitamin B complex, all of which Chlorella can’t boast. The other differences are mostly in the area of trace nutrients and would take a long time to go through.
Organic Spirulina is definitely a superfood, making it very complete for a green powder. However, because most green powder combinations have organic Spirulina in their formula, as well as a wide variety of other ingredients, green powder combinations are usually have a more complete nutritional value. However, some people absolutely swear by Spirulina as the ultimate superfood. Claims about what Spirulina can do for the body abound. People have called it a miracle food, healing whatever ails the body, and promoting maximum wellness. Whether or not that’s true is up to the reader to decide.
Choosing a Quality Brand
Choosing a quality brand of Spirulina is important because of how Spirulina is created. Being a single celled algae, it is grown in large vats, and has to be processed in order to be rendered as a powder. In the past, contamination has been known to happen with both Spirulina and Chlorella. Not only that, but single celled algae aren’t the easiest thing for the body to absorb and utilize. Choosing a quality brand ensures that the Spirulina you’re eating will be as highly bio-available as possible. It doesn’t make sense, after all, to save money by buying a cheaper brand, but digest less of the powder you eat. I’d rather pay more for a better brand and have confidence that the powder is actually being absorbed and utilized by my body. But the choice is yours.
