Spirulina Special

Spirulina is an algae that grows in the salty waters of subtropical climates and has significant amounts of calcium, iron and magnesium per serving. It’s also been shown to help lower cholesterol. Flaxseed is a great vegan source of Omega-3s and fiber, which is a great combination for athletes. Mix those two superfoods with nature’s VIP, avocado, and the cancer-fighting polyphenols from grapes, and you’ve got a drink that does everything from light detoxing to helping you glow from the inside out. Drinking one of these before heading into the mall for an early shopping trip is like putting a force field around your immune system (something we could all use right about now).
