There are no miracles and there is no easy way to lose weight. It will always be a combination of a controlled diet and adequate exercise. Is spirulina the new miracle cure? No, but it can certainly contribute greatly to your weight loss efforts. It reduces your feeling of hunger, stimulates fat burning, controls your sugar levels and gives you more energy to start a workout or walk.

It is not easy to eat healthy today. Many foods have been processed and contain too much fat, sugar and preservatives. Even fruits and vegetables are designed to grow fast and get to the market as quickly as possible, often compromising the nutritional quality.

Sprinkles: low in calories, packed with all essential nutrients and proteins.

Our algae grow at their own natural rhythm and are packed with proteins, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, whilst accounting for only 3.6 kcal per gram. Speaking of efficiency, there is everything you need in a single product. Our sprinkles contain 65% protein, you won't get that much protein anywhere else for so few calories.The advantage of proteins is that they are digested slowly by the body, as opposed to carbohydrates and fats.Proteins thus provide a longer feeling of saturation. That is why protein diets are so popular. The sprinkles also specifically contain phenylalanine, an essential amino acid that the body cannot make on its own. Phenylalanine stimulates the secretion of the hormone cholecystokinin (CCK) which suppresses the appetite. For weight loss, it is often advised to take a teaspoon of spirulina 1 hour before meals to satisfy your hunger pangs. The advantage of spirulina sprinkles is that they only have a single cell wall compared to other protein sources, which allows them to dissolve in water and be absorbed quickly. With a spoon of spirulina, your peckish feeling is satisfied quickly and it helps you to absorb fewer calories. At the same time, you also provide your body with enough vitamins and minerals.

For example, a 2016 double-blind and placebo-controlled study showed that taking 2 g spirulina per day for three months resulted in improved BMI and improved blood pressure.

Reduced blood sugar levels

Our sprinkles are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids and GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid). GLA aids in the regulation of blood sugar levels. With elevated blood sugar levels (for example after eating sugars or snacks), the pancreas starts to produce the hormone insulin to ensure the absorption of glucose. The excess amounts are stored as fat. Multiple studies have shown that spirulina can lower blood sugar. This is of course essential for weight loss.

Gives you energy

Sprinkles are a great supplement for workouts. They contain vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B5 which are essential in our energy metabolism. They also contain B6, which helps in the proper functioning of insulin. Optimal energy management means that we can be more active. More energy gives you that extra punch during your exercize activity to go the extra mile and burn more fat.
