What is Blue Spirulina? What are the health benefits and how to use it?
Spirulina is an algae that grows in ponds, lakes, and alkaline waters. Phytocyanin, a substance with a blue pigment, has been isolated from the spirulina algae, which itself is green in color, and is called blue spirulina. The nice news about blue spirulina is that unlike green spirulina, it doesn’t have a strong taste. In addition to its beautiful color, phytocyanin is also a powerful antioxidant and has powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
Health benefits of Blue Spirulina?

3. Increases energy and performance – Blue Spirulina algae is known for its abundance of B vitamins which increase energy levels. The antioxidant content of blue spirulina algae makes it useful in reducing exercise-induced oxidation which leads to muscle fatigue.
