BENEFITS FOR SPORT AND ATHLETES - Spirulina is considered as a superfood, being naturally rich in vitamins, iron and selenium. It is also called green protein, as around 60% of its weight is pure protein. As this alga has no hard cell walls, it is much easier to digest than other types of protein. This is why it is a good source of protein for athletes. Indeed, it has good protein quality because it has the 8 essential amino acids (including BCAA) that the body is not able to synthesize. These amino acids are needed to renew muscles. - Apart of the protein, spirulina contains powerful antioxidants, which can fight free radicals that cause oxidative stress and damage to DNA and cell structures. - Spirulina is the richest natural wholefood source of complete protein in the world and can thus act as a natural energy boost to combat fatigue. - During training, the consumption of oxygen by the body can increase more than 10 times. Therefore, there is a significant increase in the production of oxidants that can contribute to muscular fatigue. Antioxidants contained in spirulina can help you to increase the amount of intense exercise before muscular fatigue occurs. - And spirulina is not only useful while training. It is also known to help detoxify and clean the body, and boost your immune system.

How to use it?
