The company we primarily use for our herbs and supplements, Nature's Sunshine Products is running a special March 6th & 7th on some "Green" products like Chlorophyll, Aloe Vera Juice and a great pregnancy addition, Spirulina, in honor of St. Patty's Day a little early!
Since I'm over halfway done with my second pregnancy and due to NSP's latest special, I thought I'd share real quick some info about the value of Spirulina during pregnancy! I took it with my first baby and have started it with this pregnancy as well!
-Supports the nervous system
-Provides 400 mg of pure, 100% blue-green microalgae per capsule
-Is a great source of protein.
-Contains plant-sourced vitamin B12
How It Works:
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that grows in warm, alkaline fresh waters around the world. It naturally contains protein representing all eight essential amino acids, as well as chelated minerals, natural plant sugars, trace minerals and enzymes. Spirulina is easily assimilated by the body and provides naturally occurring Chlorophyll. The high concentration of protein and iron makes it ideal for pregnancy and a growing baby's brain to be awesomely nourished!
If this is something you're interested in, don't forget that Spirulina is 50% off today and tomorrow! As always, members receive an even better discount so let me know if you'd like to join (it's free with a purchase!).
