I’m on a spirulina kick!  Here is why you should be too!

In addition to being loaded with antioxidants, spirulina also contains the omega 6 fatty acid GLA or Gamma Linolenic Acid.  According to webMD, the body converts omega 6 fatty acids into substances that reduce inflammation and cell growth.  It is used to treat conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, heart disease, depression, ADHD, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis and for cancer prevention.

Combined with berries, spirulina gives this smoothie a rich purple color!
