Spirulina Lime Ice Cream

Its so good for you!
Spirulina is an amazing superfood and a complete protein containing, that's between 55% and 70% protein! Wow! It is rich in all essential amino acids like gamma-liolenic acid (GLA) which is known to help treat inflammation and auto-immune diseases, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) a polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acid that partially converts to DHA and EPA, linoleic acid (LA) is an unsaturated omega 6 fatty acid. The word "linoleic" comes from the Greek word linon (flax). Oleic means "of, relating to, or derived from oil or olive." Stearidonic acid (SDA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is involved in lowering inflammation and may help mental conditions and help depression and more importantly suicidal behavior, helps chemotherapy patients and reduces risk of developing certain types of cancer. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) helps with brian function and depression as well as inhibiting certain cancers, it has also been found to help brain function, learning, and memory in adults. Arachidonic acid (AA) helps muscle growth, brain function and is often used as a body building supplement.
They are called essential amino acids because these acids cannot be produced in our body and must be acquired through diet. These acids are needed for good health because the body requires them for various biological processes.
Its so good for you!
