Apples, Lemonade, Blue Spirulina, and Kava Kava
Antioxidant, Relaxation and Fiber Nourishment
The health benefits of lemons are attributed primarily to the high level of vitamin C that the fruit provides. Apples are a convenient package of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and flavonoids (beneficial plant compounds) that provide a range of valuable health benefits. Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae that contains a number of nutrients, including B vitamins, beta-carotene, and vitamin E. Spirulina also contains antioxidants, minerals, chlorophyll, and is commonly used as a source of vegan protein. Among proponents, spirulina has been used to support a number of health conditions, including fatigue, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, and viral infections. Spirulina benefits also include weight loss, increased energy, and stimulation of the immune system.
