The hunt for immune boosters is on and while it may be the obvious choice to head for the vitamin C aisle, there are plenty of other effective nutritional supplements that can provide the ultimate immune boost. Our number one recommendation? The increasingly renowned Spirulina.
Spirulina has been used for centuries, providing a natural plant based form of protein, amino acids, iron and most other vitamins and minerals. This incredible superfood boasts an array of extremely dense nutrients and has even been named the ‘food of the future’ in recent years, particularly after gaining popularity following NASA proposing that it could be grown in space for use by astronauts.
SO WHAT EXACTLY IS SPIRULINA AND WHERE IS IT SOURCED?
Spirulina is classified as a cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae and just as plants do, it produces energy from sunlight. It is a natural source of bioavailable iron, contains over 65% easily digestible protein content, vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, essential fatty acids, phytonutrients and antioxidants. VITUS Spirulina is sourced from the pioneering manufacturer of Spirulina and the first Spirulina farm in the USA, currently the world’s largest. This Spirulina farm is isolated, in a desert location with clean air, away from pollution and stable weather condition for optimal quality and is free from chemical nasties.
