- Perfect for vegetarians as it provides nutrients missing in a meatless diet, including iron and amino acids
- If you’re pregnant, you need extra nutrition as the baby grows, spirulina is a gentle more natural way to supplement
- Counteract the effects of a busy lifestyle
Spirulina for me is a daily saviour; a natural way to prepare for the day and a top-up at lunch ensures I have the physical energy and stamina to get through – and enjoy! – my day.
Getting sufficient vitamins and minerals is problematic when you don’t have a bowel, as this is where many of your essential nutrients and water are absorbed during digestion. After the loss of my large intestine, and now 30cm of my small intestine, food has become more complicated than ever. Spirulina packs a big nutritional punch in a small portion, which works well for me. I feel I get more out of spirulina than my regular diet as it is quickly absorbed. Without spirulina as part of my daily diet, I wouldn’t have the quality of life I enjoy.
Spirulina was the beginning of the journey for Rose & Soul, which makes it even more special. My dear friend, Lenka, asked me along to a business meeting in Changmai, Thailand July 2015. Thats where I learned all about the production of this superfood and discovered the benefits for my health. On my return to Australia I found a local supplier and have been extolling it’s virtues ever since.
How much should I take?
We suggest 5-10 tablets daily for adults, 3-5 tablets for children under 12 years of age, but if you have special requirements to allergies, please consult your health practioner.
With so many brands of Spirulina on the market, how can I know which brand is best?
Our spirulina is grown, processed and packaged in Australia. Other brands are produced from imported spirulina and may have additives included.
