Spirulina can help you achieve healthier hair and nails, says Dr. Joel Schlessinger.
When taken as a supplement, this seaweed can help many aspects of your body. Spirulina contains a wide range of minerals that are important to maintain healthy hair, skin and nails. These minerals help keep hair shiny and your nails strong. Not only this, but it also helps fight off inflammation and can help soothe and calm sensitive skin.
Dr. Joel Schlessinger says spirulina is a great source of antioxidants.
Free radicals are a common part of our environment that can cause premature aging. Luckily, spirulina has a high content of antioxidants that help shield the skin from free radical damage. Spirulina is packed with vitamin A, vitamin B-12 and vitamin E, all of which can help improve the appearance of sagging, tired-looking skin.
“These vitamins also prevent wide-spread free radical growth, stopping premature aging in its tracks,” said Dr. Joel Schlessinger.
