Spirulina: a natural food with unique benefitsPosted by Federica Perissinotto on
Spirulina is a precious and natural “superfood” with many benefits and uses. It’s a real nourishment for your skin, that’s why it’s one of our favourite ingredients!
With surprising beneficial properties, Spirulina is a blue-green algae rich in proteins, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids and carbohydrates.
There are many ways one can use this powerful algae: added to smoothies, juices, yogurt, or in bread, pasta and more for really interesting recipes and preparations!
What about cosmetics? Spirulina is highly recommended and used because it helps to
- detoxify and remove impurities from the skin
- regain normal water balance
- increase cell turnover, providing antibacterial, antioxidant and elasticizing properties
With so many surprising benefits we’ve integrated spirulina in the Adamà Detox Facial Mask.
A couple of months ago we visited Bertolini Farm in Italy, where this algae is cultivated, processed and packaged. The family run farm has high quality standard and is in compliance with the Italian and European health and hygiene regulations. To see more about it please visit our Instagram profile!
Finally, here’s a fun fact - do you know where the name spirulina comes from?
The blue-green algae derives its name from the shape that recalls, in fact, that of a spiral.
