We often have customers check out our menu and ask, what the heck is spirulina? If you're no health buff, this is a valid question. Spirulina, which has recently gained popularity as a superfood in the wellness world, is actually an organic freshwater blue-green algae. Not only does it reinforce the immune system and balance the brain, it is the highest source of protein of any known food. It also balances high blood pressure, controls cholesterol and treats seasonal allergies. Spirulina even has to be shown to aid in preventing the growth of cancerous cells. Not bad for a plant. Next time you're at The Squeeze, do something good for your body and brain and choose to spike your smoothie or juice. Or, if you're hardcore, grab one of our boosters and take it as a shot. Cheers!
