I have been seeing this supplement in the news as well as internet advertising lately. One of the infomercials that I saw said that this is considered a superfood which has everything needed for survival and is promoted as a longevity food. In other words, take it, eat it and live longer. As a matter of fact. scientists from the US Space Program at NASA have studied Spirulina as a potential food source for space travel and settlement of space stations due to its remarkable nutrient profile. I was curious about this superfood and started my research. Aren’t we all looking for the fountain of youth? I was surprised at the plethora of information on this supplement and all it is said to do. It is said to help allergies, menopausal symptoms, PMS, Immune system, anxiety, depression, memory, heart disease, wound healing, digestion, high cholesterol and diabetes. It is also said to aid in weight loss and gain. It is high in protein. it is the most nutritious, concentrated wholefood source found in nature. I was given the opportunity to try these supplements, at a discount in return for my honest review.
The gel capsules hold the powdered spirluina which digest quickly. There was a little bit of a repeat taste so I recommend taking it with food or plenty of fluids. The capsules were easy to swallow. They smell like seaweed which is what spirulina is, a blue-green seaweed. My cat got a whiff of them and was very interested. I am hoping that this may help my blood sugar and also aid in weight loss. It is a small pill but loaded with protein.
Lastly, you want to purchase a product that is pure and made in the US to be sure that it is manufactured under strict regulations. You don’t want any parasites in your spirluina. This supplement comes from BRI Nutrition located in Delaware who are committed to providing their customers the highest quality and service. I have not been taking it long enough for any measurable results, however I do have a more energy and a feeling of well being which I attribute to the spirluina supplements from BRI Nutrition.
