Since day 1, we have been educating about benefits of Prodiet Spirulina. The team also shared a few recipes with Spirulina being the main ingredient. We can keep ranting on about the benefits of this superfood. But, you also need to be aware of How to choose the brand, what precautions to take and what issues to be aware of.

 

How to take Spirulina

You understand how beneficial “Prodiet” Spirulina is to health and in terms of nutrients provided. Though, it may be expensive, and fit outside of the mould of traditional food, the reality is that it’s difficult to ignore how Spirulina can be a life-balancer. Not touted as a complete replacement for your food, but you should integrate “Prodiet” Spirulina into your diet as a prime supplement.

Understanding the dosage and the way to ingest, would help you get most out of it. Don’t guess, folks at New Age Nutrition are here to help.  The best way to start taking Spirulina is to mix it with food items. Spirulina is amazing superfood, but you may not necessarily love the taste of raw powder and its pungent smell.

Therefore, mix it in smoothies, add it to soups or dips to get start building the liking for taste. Thereafter, you could start making variations of energy globes, or protein bars or Spirulina patties.

Some sources promote high doses of Spirulina for any positive effect, but that’s not true. You will easily benefit from 1-2 teaspoons per day.

 

How to Choose best

You should really do your homework to be an educated customer. It makes sense because there are plenty of companies wanting to get onto Spirulina bandwagon. There are many products on offer as  blends, which we feel may fall short of giving out the complete benefit

The first tip is to find the right brand of Spirulna is to go with pure product and not a blend. If a product says it “features” Spirulina, then don’t buy it unless you are trying to develop a taste. You want plain pure Spirulina. We at New Age Nutrition offer natural Spirulina powder.

The second tip is avoid Spirulina from Japan or nearby areas as the potential pollutant levels could be high. Find a brand, which has its farms based in tropical belts (more sun and clear water) with their processes followed are not industrial but more natural.

Ask informed questions to brands/firms. If the brand is reputable, they will list everything or provide information privately to help you choose.

 

Precautions

Though, you may enjoy adding it to your diet and avail the health benefits, don’t overdo it.  Taking proper dosage that is 1-2 teaspoons per day is recommended.  Going over that may upset stomach or some adverse effects. Also you have to be careful about where your Spirulina comes from because it absorbs materials where it is grown. Make sure that it’s a natural product if not organic and never a blend.

Take time when you begin taking Spirulina because you should wait to see how your body will react.

Gradually increase your intake in small quantities to the recommended dosage.  A few of our customers have mentioned that they experienced prolonged hiccups for a day. A very few experienced a feverish feel.  If you have sea-food allergy, please avoid these algae. If you have other health problems, do consult with doctors before taking Spirulina. Pregnant women should only take Spirulina with advice of their doctors.

 

Conclusion!

Its only natural to feel skeptical that just one food supplement can offer so many benefits, but facts speak for themselves. There’s a reason, that Spirulina has grown in popularity and risen to Superfood Status. Even, if you turn to Spirulina only for Protein needs, it will impart various other health benefits in ways you may not have imagined. So start embracing Spirulina in your everyday like and see how you grow better and save yourself the trouble of visiting doctors often.
