An Iron Boost

September 8, 2015

Sleepy Woman With GlassesWhether you haven’t figured out why your iron is low, gave up eating red meat, or have low energy, feel light headed, or noticed you’re starting to look pale where you should be pink, you might need some more iron.

Iron is an essential nutrient—almost all of it goes to your hemoglobin, which transports oxygen around the body (hence why you start to feel tired when you come up short).

It used to be you’d fill your plate with calf liver when your iron is low, but for vegetarians (and really just a lot of palates) that may not be an option, especially if you need a daily boost, not just a big one time one.

Spirulina is a vegetarian source of iron, and as a supplement, fits into your day easily so that you have a constant source of iron. The iron in spirulina is even bio-available, meaning it’s easy for your body to absorb and use.

What is spirulina? It’s an algae that’s heavy with protein and other nutrients (amino acids, omega fatty acids, calcium, copper, vitamins, and more), and is even a prebiotic that supports digestion. It’s not just iron—it’s a food with lots of benefits.

Plus, it’s the added convenience of more as needed—some people need a constant, extra supply of iron. Others need an occasional boost (usually dietary cycles or health events). With a supplement, there’s no prep–get what you need immediately, no figuring out how to cook something unusual or figuring out quantities.
