What is Spirulina?
Spirulina is a microscopic, spiral-shaped blue-green algae which grows in tropical and subtropical lakes. It is incredibly nutrient-dense and is a fantastic source of protein, essential amino acids, vitamins and minerals. GoNutrition™ Organic Spirulina Powder is cultivated on an island in the South China Sea and has a mild, earthy taste, not unlike seaweed.
How can Organic Spirulina Powder help my training?
Spirulina is known to be a complete protein source, meaning it contains every essential amino acid, including over 12g BCAAs per 100g. This means it can contribute to the growth and maintenance of muscle mass and support normal bone density. In addition it is a great source of B vitamins, calcium, chromium and iron, all of which contribute to energy metabolism. Active vegetarians and vegans can struggle to consume enough protein per day to support recovery, especially if typical sources of supplemental protein such as whey can’t be consumed for any reason. In this case, a completely organic, vegan-friendly source of protein can be a great help. This powder provides over 63g protein per 100g, making it an all round excellent supplement to support your training.
How can this product benefit my health?
Spirulina has grown hugely in popularity in recent years, to the point where it’s now considered to be a superfood. The rich content of micronutrients in this product help to support the normal functioning of the immune system. This can be especially helpful at times when the immune system is under stress, such as during winter or whilst completing intense training. Spirulina is currently the subject of several scientific studies looking at whether supplementation can improve overall blood lipid profile and reduce LDL cholesterol levels. At the moment it is too early to draw any conclusions about this, but there is still a lot of research to be done on this topic.
How should I use this powder?
We recommend a serving size of 5g (approximately one teaspoon). This can either be shaken in your GN™ Blender Bottle and consumed immediately or mixed into smoothies, soups, sauces or meals to improve the protein and micronutrient content. We recommend 1-2 servings per day of this fantastic superfood.
