Maybe you have a sensitive digestive tract and very few foods agree with you. Or maybe you have decided to remove all devitalized foods from your diet. Or perhaps your diet is vegan and you know that you need to be especially diligent in making sure your body receives all the amino acids that it needs to thrive.
Maybe you simply do not have time to prepare and eat balanced Body Ecology meals throughout the day, so you are looking for a protein powder supplement that will carry you through your cardio class at the gym and keep your neurotransmitters balanced.
With so many products on the market, finding an amino acid-rich superfood or protein powder to supplement your diet means reading a lot of labels and deciding what works best for you.
Here are some helpful guidelines to get you started:
Spirulina is certainly a superfood. It contains 18 amino acids—eight of which are essential—and five times more protein than other protein sources.
Spirulina is a popular superfood that offers 18 amino acids, including all of the eight essential amino acids that your body does not make on its own.
Spirulina is 67.1% protein. If you compare Spirulina to other popular protein sources, it contains five times more protein than other foods: (1)
In addition, Spirulina is rich in chlorophyll, vitamins, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, minerals, and trace minerals, making it truly a complete food. Unfortunately, Spirulina is difficult to digest. If your gastrointestinal tract is at all compromised, it can be impossible to digest. If you are consuming Spirulina, it is likely that you are receiving little nutritional value from it because in its raw state, these valuable macronutrients and phytonutrients are simply not available.
Modern science has found that traditionally fermented foods such as kefir, natto, and kim chi all have significant health-promoting properties that would not be present if the food were not fermented. Fermentation converts sugars into lactic acid, which controls pathogenic bacteria, while delivering friendly microflora to the gut. Fermentation also begins the digestion process by breaking down the sometimes toxic and indigestible parts of food while also generating its own health-promoting vitamins and enzymes.
Standard food production over-processes and devitalizes food in order to preserve it, thereby killing valuable enzymes and beneficial microbes. The result of food processing is evident in the kind of diseases that dominate industrialized countries: heart disease, cancer, diabetes, autoimmune conditions, and allergic response.
As more people develop conditions that are inflammatory and linked to immune and endocrine disease, doctors are increasingly looking at the gut. The gastrointestinal system, the bacteria it harbors, its mucosal layer, and the lymphoid tissue beneath it play a significant role in the health of the entire body.
Body Ecology offers a fermented protein supplement that works with the delicate nature of your gut, making hard-to-digest nutrients readily available.
Body Ecology Super Spirulina Plus is completely fermented. This means is it fully available to your body for immediate use. This also means that the fermentation process has made a superfood like Spirulina even more super! Remember, traditionally fermented foods not only deliver beneficial microbes to your gut, but the fermentation process also makes all of the nutrients available for use while creating other health-promoting enzymes and vitamins.
