Keep your Heart Healthy
…….with the anti-oxidant power of raw spirulina
The health of our heart governs our quality of life and how active we are, now and in the future, so it’s vital we take care of it and keep it in good working order.
The cause of heart disease is the loss of elasticity and the build-up of fatty deposits lining our blood vessels, but the good news is we can take action to prevent it!
A diet high in anti-oxidants from lots of brightly coloured fruits and vegetables, particularly fruits like berries and dark green leafy vegetables really help to protect our blood vessel linings, but we can go one step further. Spirulina, when consumed as a raw food, is a powerful source of the anti-oxidant compound phycocyanin which has been shown to exert powerful antioxidant effects.
When we harness the power of eating raw foods including Spirulina, we reduce the damage done over time to our blood vessel linings, keeping our blood vessels flexible and working well enough to supply our heart with the blood flow it needs to keep us active.
Consuming raw spirulina on a regular basis will ensure you are keeping your levels of anti-oxidants topped up, your heart will be happier and healthier for it and you will benefit from a better quality and more active life.
Spirulina has also been shown to reduce cholesterol, more on that in another article!
