If you want a plant-based source of iron and many other nutrients, look no further that the superfood Spirulina. And you don’t have to figure out where to buy it or how to prepare it, because it’s available as a handy supplement, Blu-Lina Organic Spirulina!
What is Spirulina? It’s an algae that’s naturally plentiful in protein (including iron, all 8 amino acids, and essential fatty acids) and vitamins and minerals (from beta-carotene and lutein to B12 and folic acid to calcium, zinc, potassium and more). And by plentiful, I mean it’s got more protein than fish or beef, and more nutrients than a traditional plant you might compare it to, like carrots or spinach. It’s such a good source of nutrition, it’s even been included in the diet of astronauts, and was historically a staple part of the diet wherever it was found.
In addition to being a vegan source of all these nutrients (and even non-vegans may prefer a natural source of iron, rather than one added to a supplement), Spirulina has lots of enzymes to support digestion, is a prebiotic (meaning it supports your probiotic colonies, which helps not only digestion, but is continually being linked to more and more aspects of health), plus it has chlorophyll which supports blood and liver health.
For those who want a daily multivitamin that contains iron, or to round out their diet with a vegan source of nutrients, the superfood Spirulina is a great choice, and it’s an easy one to make when you choose Blu-Lina Organic Spirulina.
