This humble green algae, called Spirulina is one of Cooka’s favourite superfoods and here is WHY:
Spirulina is one of the richest source of nutrients in nature, containing up to 70 percent protein, B-complex vitamins, phycocyanin, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, amino acids, vitamin E, omegas and numerous minerals. Ancient Aztecs and the people of west Africa recognised the benefits of this super-food already thousands of years ago and NASA has considered it one of the most important food components for their space explorers.
Besides being highly nourishing, this humble blue-green algae has also the ability to detox and remove impurities from the body. Many pawrents have noticed dramatic changes in their pet’s health after adding spirulina to their diet.
It is complete protein source, containing all nine of the essential amino acids – the building blocks needed for every cell in your dog’s body.
Spirulina contains phycocyanin, a photosynthetic pigment with strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Spirulina is one of the most chlorophyll-rich foods in the world, which helps remove toxins from the blood.
Spirulina boosts the immune system and can reduce the incidence of allergies.
Spirulina has been shown to improve anxiety and depression in hoomans and has a similar calming and balancing effect on dogs.
Spirulina is a great source of essential fatty acids, so-called omegas, which are crucial for proper brain function, tissue and cell regeneration, healthy skin and a glossy coat.
