Although it has become widely consumed in recent years, there are still many people who do not know about spirulina and the many benefits of taking it. It is an algae that is mainly found in lakes and can have several uses. It can be used as a supplement, as well as added to food products. Many use it because the proteins and vitamins it contains have an invigorating and energising effect. In fact, spirulina has an antioxidant action that helps to prevent the damage of ageing, favouring memory and concentration. In addition, the presence of omega 3 and omega 6 reduces cardiovascular risk and lowers cholesterol levels. This is why we decided to include spirulina in our vegetable pesto, to ensure a tasty product that is also nutritionally complete.
