Spirulina is a natural “algae” powder that is incredibly high in protein and a great source of antioxidants, B-vitamins, calcium and super high in iron and other nutrients.The concentration of protein and vitamins in Spirulina has led many to classify it as the “most nutrient dense food on the planet.”The high concentration of protein and iron also makes it ideal during pregnancy, after birth or surgery, or anytime the immune system needs a boost. This is why we added some into our seedlyfe pregnancy blend. It helps nourish your body, gives you lots of energy, boosts muscle strength and endurance, anti inflammatory, helps balance blood sugar levels, promotes healthy gut microbes and reduces allergies. Spirulina improves the hemoglobin levels of the body and prevents anemia and fatigue during pregnancy. Essential fatty acids in spirulina support prostaglandin functionality which promotes hormonal balance and stabilizes blood pressure during pregnancy. Spirulina helps support healthy brain growth and function with baby and mama. Since it is loaded with chlorophyll, spirulina prevents toxins from accumulating in the body. It may also help combat and prevent gestational diabetes and preeclampsia.
