Hormone Balancing Star Ingredient: Spirulina

This antioxidant powerhouse is a type of blue-green algae derived from lakes and ponds that’s an amazing source of essential hormone-balancing nutrients (iron, magnesium, calcium & potassium). Due to its detoxifying and anti-inflammatory properties, it can help reduce cramps, breast tenderness, and inflammation while improving mood + overall hormone balance! ⁠

Spirulina nutrients help support your liver, which is the primary place of detoxification in the body and crucial for hormone metabolism (such as detoxification of excess estrogens). Because estrogen & progesterone imbalances are behind some of the most common hormone-related symptoms in women (i.e. PMS, weight gain), this superfood should be high on the shopping list! ⁠

Spirulina is a staple in many vegetarian + vegan diets because of its incredible protein content (4g per TBSP which is close to an egg at 6g) and because protein is essential for hormone production, ovulation & fertility, it's a great way to get more of it! To make it a complete protein, pair it with grains, oats, nuts, or seeds! Some ways to add Spirulina into your daily rituals: ⁠

>> Add an organic spirulina powder to your smoothies (along with nuts & seeds)! ⁠

>> Take a spirulina tablet-like @energybits which is a great pre & post-workout as it's been shown to have beneficial effects on muscle endurance & exercise performance...also supportive after too much alcohol to help detoxify the liver! ⁠

>> Use a spirulina cracker (like the ones from @maukfamilyfarms) w/ nut butter on top for a protein-rich snack! ⁠

>> Stir a small spoonful of spirulina powder into a glass of water or juice & enjoy on hot days, before/after workouts, and after alcoholic beverages! ⁠
