Spirulina Seaweed

VEGETABLE

Spirulina is a type of freshwater algae, that forms long kelp like tendrels but witbut but with a grass like thickness. It's often powdered and added as an ingredient to smoothies or sauces.

High in copper, riboflavin and thiamin, spirulina is not consumed just for its micronutrients, but rather its potential health benefits. Trials indicating effects on cholesterol are dated, but trials have shown protective effects for those suffering from allergic rhinitis.
