Although they have been around for a long time, we call them 3rd generation supplements, since they possess amazing nutritional properties. However, the most important is that their nutrients are not inorganic laboratory substances, but natural compounds with high degree of bioavailability.
Today we will present three of them:
Spiroulina is a type of algae, with a high number of nutrients, such as B complex vitamins, beta-carotene, and vitamin E, minerals, chlorophyll, and phycocyanobilin. Known for its high concentration in protein (55-70%) and low calories, it can be a good source of protein for vegans.
Chlorella is also a type of algae that grows in fresh water. It offers a great array of benefits, such as heavy metal dexofication, chemotherapy detox, and boosting of the immune system among others. When combined with its cousin, spiroulina, the benefits multiply.
Bee pollen is a miraculous food, since it contains almost all of the nutrients required by the human body. This is the main reason why the young bees grow so fast. 40% of its structure is protein, along with free amino acids. Moreover, it contains many minerals, vitamins, and healthy acids.
