Also how much spirulina do you take? They make it over here and depending on how much you need to take a day it seems like it could be an affordable natural supplement
I don't use any sprouts although i am familiar with the benefits and the risks, and the latter is why I typically don't use or advise their use. But if grown correctly and eaten when fresh some are probably superior. The alfalfa I buy is from young, dried/dehydrated leaf. its not sprouts per se, but it is definitely not hay or livestock feed.
I take about 3 tablespoons of alfalfa leaf at a time, and I alternate between alfalfa and barely. I take about 1 teaspoon of spirulina because it is very salty, which is why I use the beet root powder because it is naturally sweet. and strikes a drinkable balance. It's not sweet like sugar cane but like carrot so its often not palatable to most at first but its not about taste, it makes me feel amazing.
I started to experiment with spirulina because I read it supposedly gets rapidly absorbed and helps the cells by supplying quick oxygen or something to that effect, i can't remember well its been awhile but I would do serious anaerobic activity like hitting the bag hard and fast or doing burpees, i would take a teaspoon to a tablespoon in a bottle of water, shake it up good and drink it after I was heavily gassed and I had some amazing results, so much so I began to log my research and planned on publishing it but real life got in the way and I haven't had much time to get back into it. long story short, it does something to refresh your oxygen so much so that you can be at the point of vomiting to not breathing heavy at all. In a matter of a few seconds, its helped me get into tremendous shape for bjj. I have been too distracted with other things but its worth doing a bit of experimenting on if you workout.
