Spirulina

My first products blog has to be on spirulina. I get teased by some friends by how much I talk about it, but it is wonderful! When I was pregnant with my second (4 years ago), I was tired (and grumpy) all the time. After he was born, I still had no energy. I read an article about spirulina and decided to give it a try. About 3 months later, I realized that without even noticing it, I was now able to stay up until the late, late hour of 10pm! I could even take a walk in the evening, and I could make it through making dinner with a smile on my face. I didn't convince my husband that he should try it until earlier this year when I figured out that the only times in the last 3 years that I had been sick were when I had gone a few days without taking spirulina. Very simply, it is an algae; it's kind of like eating a lot of spinach. You can look it up at spirulina.com. I buy mine from a place called beeyoutiful.com. It comes in small green pills that you swallow whole, 6 a day. I take them in the morning with my one-a-day vitamin. If you are tired and constantly battling sickness, check this out!

  1. Ohhhh, I am so intrigued. Boy I could use a little extra energy and illness fighting power. Hmmm. I like this blog. I looked at their website and saw they have supermom, what do you think of that?

  2. I think Supermom would be great. I'm pretty sure I get about the same stuff taking the spirulina and a multi-vitamin, but having it all together in one pill might be nice!
