What is Spirulina?

Hyun Joo Lee

One of the most popular drinks at the Mama Bear Cafe is the Green the Hulk smoothie, a healthy blend of carefully selected ingredients such as spinach, kale, pineapple, cucumber, and apple. All of these are ingredients that the majority of our customers are familiar with, but one that we frequently receive questions about is spirulina.
Spirulina is a major component to how the Green the Hulk boosts your health, and is also part of what gives the drink it’s unique green color. It’s actually a type of algae, though we use it in dehydrated form, that has been consumed for centuries due to it’s incredible abilities. As written by Healthline, spirulina is often used “as treatment for a range of metabolism and heart health issues, such as weight loss, diabetes, and high cholesterol.” FDA approved studies also show that this green superfood has significant amounts of essential vitamins and nutrients, like calcium, magnesium, potassium, niacin, vitamin B, and iron. Many potential benefits of spirulina are still being studied.
Check out this incredible food for yourself at our cafe when you order a Green the Hulk smoothie. It’s a nutritious, sugar free way to treat yourself and try out something new that may just become your new favorite ingredient.
