Add fresh, frozen spirulina to your daily routine, and reap the benefits — and not just for your athletic prowess. Slip SP2 into your morning smoothie or juice and there are plenty of mental side benefits that will make you energized throughout the day.

More Exercise = Boosted Mental State

Tangential, but inarguable: When you’re recovering from training at a faster rate, your exercise habits are more likely to stay steady. Regular exercise doesn’t just make you fit, it makes you productive at work, and gives you energy in the office. According to one 2011 study, office workers were found more likely to be productive when they were exercising regularly. And anyone’s who’s had the feeling of a runner’s high knows that the rest of the day feels amazing after that! Mountain runner Julian Carr says that since he added SP2 to his daily smoothies, recovery from workouts has been much faster, and that’s left him with plenty more energy to plan the mountain runs for the Cirque Series.  

 

B12 Can Cut Through Fatigue

Feeling exhausted lately? You might be running low on B12, the hard-to-get vitamin in the B vitamin family. Harvard Medical School cites fatigue and brain fog as symptoms of B12 deficiency. Fortunately, SP2 has the full range of B vitamins available in each serving. For vegans or picky eaters who avoid red meat, B12 is often lacking, so if you’ve been feeling like you’re drooping on the daily, there might be a vitamin deficiency to blame. 

 

Iron Can Alleviate Brain Drain Caused By Anemia 

Anemia, which affects a reported 24.8 percent of the world’s population, can cause feelings of fatigue and brain drain. The Mayo Clinic has noted that being anemic can cause symptoms similar to those caused by depression, and can lead to extreme fatigue and mood swings. That usually takes a major toll on productivity… And if you spend chunks of your day nursing a migraine, that takes a huge toll on your mental well-being and your overall energy. Studies have also shown that iron deficiency in females can be linked to migraines, so alleviating symptoms of anemia may even get rid of those splitting headaches. SP2’s spirulina contains 5100 percent more iron than spinach, so by supplementing with the dark green whole food in your daily smoothie, you can add iron to your diet without a steak at every meal.

 

More Willpower Means Better Focus

Studies have shown that every decision, large or small, costs us willpower — and we only have a certain amount of it to spend in any given day. Making healthy choices throughout the day, rather than reaching for the donut or fast food option at lunch, can be a huge drain on personal willpower. But if you’re using a subscription service like SP2 and automatically popping a square of fresh spirulina into your morning smoothie as part of your daily routine, that habit can make you less likely to need to exert your willpower to select a healthy breakfast option. The more things you can automate in your day — like choosing a healthy smoothie to start your morning — the more willpower you’ll have as the day wears on.
