Spirulina as a solution against winter blues


The days are automatically shorter towards the end of the year. You go to work in the dark and often only come home in the dark.

Due to the lack of sunlight (important for vitamin D production), you feel gloomy, irritated, lifeless, and have an untenable urge to dive into the candy cabinet in search of carbs and sugars.

This behavior is also known as the winter blues. Fortunately, you are not alone, the figures show that around 20% of the European population sometimes suffer from winter blues.

What can you do to fight the winter blues? Spirulina! 

More energy with spirulina

Dark, gray days don't help you radiate more energy. On the contrary, they invite you to snuggle up under a warm blanket on the sofa. 

Fortunately, there is spirulina. This superfood guarantees more energy and vitality. 

How? Spirulina is a bomb of protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. And that's not all, since spirulina has a very thin cell wall, it is easily digested.

This extra energy will encourage you to exercise or just take that walk outside. That way you still get that extra helping of sunlight and you make vitamin D again. A win-win!

Less appetite thanks to spirulina

A typical characteristic of the winter blues is the indelible craving for sugars and carbohydrates. In itself, a logical choice because sugar temporarily increases the levels of serotonin and dopamine in the brain. But it certainly won't make you happy in the long run. 

A better choice are our spirulina sprinkles! They consist for 65% of proteins with the advantage that they are digested slower by the body than carbohydrates and fats and thus ensure a longer feeling of satiation.

Your body will therefore be less likely to crave those extra carbohydrates and sugars thanks to spirulina.

A stronger immune system

Not only do you feel bad mentally, but a winter dip also makes you more vulnerable to infections like a cold.

By adding preventative spirulina sprinkles to your diet daily, you give your body a stronger immune system.

Several studies have shown that spirulina has a beneficial effect on macrophages and the phagocytosis process. It increases the activity of NK cells and the production of lymphocytes and antibodies.


Do you suffer from a winter plunge or a winter blues every year? So spirulina helps preventively.
