Spirulina in vegetarians and vegans

Spirulina as a rich source of protein and nutrients for consumption by vegetarians and vegans.

Spirulina has been used as the perfect food supplement to seek a balanced diet, since it is a source of vegetable protein that contains a large amount of nutrients, vitamins and minerals. In addition, the plant protein offered by spirulina is digested better than any other plant-based protein and, of course, better than any animal protein source. 🥦🌿🍽️

Spirulina for vegetarians and vegans is an important source of nutrients necessary for the proper functioning of the body:

Proteins: Spirulina has a high percentage of proteins (up to 70%) of good quality, and it also contains all the essential amino acids. 💪🌾

Lipids: It is the only food, apart from breast milk, that contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA). In addition, it has essential fatty acids for our body. 🥜🥑

Minerals: Additionally, it is important to note that spirulina contains potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, manganese, zinc, phosphorus and selenium. Essential minerals for the proper functioning of the human body. ⚖️💊

Vitamins: Spirulina has a high content of vitamins, including vitamin D, beta-carotene, which is a precursor to vitamin A, and B complex vitamins (such as B12, folic acid, etc.). 🌞🌿💊

  • Spirulina has a high concentration of beta carotene. 🧡
  • It also contains iron, which is essential for building a strong system. In addition to having magnesium and other minerals that are very easily absorbed. ⚙️🔋🥦

Finally, it is important to highlight the fact that one of the few deficiencies that updated nutritionists have found in the 100% vegetarian diet is the lack of vitamin B12, essential for a nervous system and healthy tissues. 💡🥦 Spirulina is one of the few non-animal foods that are sources of vitamin B12. 🌿💊🧠
