Superfood Spotlight: Spirulina

Health

spirulinaHave you ever noticed the bright green powdered supplement Spirulina in the health food aisle and wondered what it’s all about?  Spirulina, a blue-green algae, is a complete protein, containing all of the essential amino acids.  Studies have shown that spirulina can help fight off infections too.  On top of that, spirulina has six times the iron content that red meat contains.  I like to throw a teaspoon into my smoothies for an added boost.  Don’t be shocked if your smoothie turns a funky green color!  Read //FitKim.com/Food/The-Inside-Scoop-on-Iron for more info!
