Spirulina in Sports

Spirulina contributes to increased sports performance. 🏋️‍♂️🌿

Spirulina is considered the algae of athletes due to its great energy value and also for its contribution to the body's recovery after sporting activity. 💪🏃‍♀️

Spirulina improves the performance of athletes:

The use of spirulina affects sports performance in two fundamental ways: • It increases resistance before practicing any exercise, due to its high iron content. 🏃‍♂️🔋 • Because it is a source of rapid energy, it accelerates the recovery process of proteins, vitamins and minerals that we must replace after physical effort. 🚴‍♀️💨

The use of spirulina by athletes dates back to the time of the Aztec Empire. Robert Henrikson, in his book “Spirulina Microalga, Superfood of the Future” relates that the Aztec messengers took spirulina before their marathons, who traveled great distances carrying only this microalgae with them as food. 📚🏃‍♂️

The consumption of spirulina to improve sports performance is ideal both for people who practice a sport regularly and for high-performance athletes; managing to provide the body with the amount of energy necessary for its activity. ⚡💪

On the other hand, spirulina is a food rich in iron, so the contribution that this component provides to athletes serves to transport oxygen in a better way in the blood. 💉🩸

Furthermore, due to its high calcium and magnesium content, spirulina reduces the possibility of suffering muscle spasms during sports, since these components are directly involved in muscle mobility and contraction. 💪🦵

Spirulina is a good dietary supplement for athletes because it strengthens and maintains muscle mass. It helps them optimize preparation during training, as well as recovery after exercise, because it contains 60 to 70% protein. It has good quality proteins as it has all the essential amino acids (including BCAA). 💪🥇
