Spirulina is known to be one of the richest sources of nutrients, including B vitamins plus phytonutrients, carotenoids and chlorophyll, perfect support for a healthy immune system. What’s more, spirulina is a plant-based protein that absorbs almost three times as quickly as its meat counterparts, so it’s a great way to add nutrients that are missing if you follow an exclusively plant-based diet. Its most commonly used to boost morning smoothies, in baking, or in its simplest form mixed with water, and also can be used in making Spirulina Almond Butter Cups.
