What Does The Blue Majik Smoothie Taste Like?
When consumed alone, Majik Powder tastes a bit like seaweed and a touch of sulfur. So adding fruits and milk to make a smoothie can help avoid any overpowering effects.
What Is The Difference Between Spirulina And Blue Spirulina?
The main difference between blue spirulina and traditional spirulina is the single protein-pigment complex called Phycocyanin. This powerful antioxidant gives Blue Spirulina its soothing blue hue, along with an added nutritional value.
Regular spirulina is a whole-cell alga that has a green color. It tastes less palatable and carries limited health benefits compared to Blue spirulina. Many people have also found it to have a fishy texture that makes it difficult to combine with smoothies, juices, and breakfast bowls.
Is It OK To Take Spirulina Every Day?
Yes, spirulina is safe to be consumed every day. It is even recommended to be used as a dietary supplement when the intake of certain nutrients is low. However, if you’re already taking medical supplements, it is essential to speak with your healthcare provider before adding spirulina to your diet to ensure it doesn’t interfere with any other medications you’re taking.
Some experts, on the other hand, state that excessive amounts of spirulina can be harmful. It is generally recommended to keep the maximum intake up to 8 grams. Consuming more than this can result in problems like diarrhoea, nausea, headaches, dizziness, and increased bruising and clotting.
