For anyone whose been to a festival before you’ll know how hard it can be to eat healthily and get all everything you need into your bodies. Fresh fruit and vegetables are a rarity and smoothies and fruit juices can be trickier to find. You’re likely to be up for long periods of time, outdoors and sleeping in less than ideal conditons which is where the Indigo Herbz Organic Spirulina Tablets* come in.
I’m going to be honest I’d never heard of Spirulina before Indigo Herbz sent be more information but it’s a modern superfood which is found in powder form. As I’m not a huge fan of powders and find the taste sometimes leaves a little to be desired I was happy to see that these had been made into tablet form. I’m absolutely fine with swallowing tablets so this was the ideal solution for me.
Spirulina is a blue/ green algae which is rich in chlorophyll and other nutrients. It is a complete protein tablet which means that it has about 9 amino acids within it. There are also plenty of B vitamins which help keep your nervous system, mental agility and cognitive prowess healthy. B Vitamins are really powerful anti-oxidants for the brain and give a massive boost. Spirulina also is a high in potassium and has 71% of your daily recommendated allowance of iron which is great for me as I am always low on iron.
I took these every morning at Glastonbury taking the recommended 4 tablets and then having another 4 in the afternoon (although you can take as many as 24 within a day). I definitely found that despite spending five days at a festival I felt a definite boost and didn’t feel as drained at the end of each day. I’m planning on taking these away with me when I go on holiday to give myself a bit of a boost because I am going to have having quite a few long days.
