2. Improved Brain Health
You also get improved brain health as a benefit of taking spirulina. Taking a spoonful spirulina per day is something that people do to prevent the brain from degenerative diseases like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. There is some basis in science, but most of the evidence for this is anecdotal. However, that should not dismiss the potential for being right, because there has not yet been a lot of research done on spirulina. One study that was done compared spirulina to foods that have a lot of antioxidants like spinach and blueberries.
These foods have already been proven to lower inflammation and eliminate free radicals which can prevent degenerative brain diseases. In this particular study, spirulina had the same or better effects as the high antioxidant foods. Some experts also think that spirulina can help boost your brainpower and even help you concentrate. There has also been some evidence that spirulina helps with ADHD.
