Spirulina and alfalfa
Do you know his two plants? Are they recommended for iron deficiency? Can you combine one of the two with brewer’s yeast (yes I do not intend to take both simultaneously)? In fact, I think I am iron deficient. I have some sort of tingling in my legs and my period is not quite as heavy as it used to be. I take Sargeform from time to time which seems to do me good but here I want to use a natural alternative knowing that I eat very little food rich in iron (especially during the week because of work).
I can never thank you enough for the precious help you could give me.
I know a little about spirulina and it is true that it contains iron.
However, in case of deficiency, I would rather recommend Floradix because it is more indicated in case of anemia.
A small scoop contains 15 mg of iron, some vitamins of the B group (including the famous vit.B12) which are in principle well assimilated by the body (+ a little vit.C).
You can find Floradix in a health food store.
I don’t know the Alfalfa.
Have a good day.
yes indeed alfalfa is a natural solution in case of iron deficiency and you can take ultra yeast without any problem at the same time (but revivifiable ki is more effective ..) and me c spirulina ke I do not do not know too much !!
Hello it’s me again. Sorry for not responding sooner but I would like to thank you for providing me with this information. Finally I went to the doctor last Saturday because I have a significant loss of hair.
Next Saturday is the blood test to find out where it comes from even if I suspect the iron deficiency.
You can combine, if you want, the intake of live brewer’s yeast with that of spirulina. But you will see, in view of the information below, that spirulina alone is enough to provide you with all the benefit you are looking for. Brewer’s yeast can cause intestinal problems, but spirulina has no side effects. So, I highly recommend it.

First of all, I would like to wish you a very happy new year full of happiness and health.
Present on Earth for 3.5 billion years, the microalgae Spirulina is a small blue-green spiral 0.1 mm long.
It is still found in some freshwater lakes in the intertropical zone where it has been harvested and consumed since time immemorial by the “Kanembou” people of Chad.
It is thanks to the observation of this traditional practice that spirulina has been identified as the most nutritious food currently known.
Its cultivation is now possible in most hot and sunny areas of the planet. It is also cultivated on the shores of the big blue (in France).
Small spirulina contains 60 to 70% protein (more than in any known food), trace elements, beta-carotene or provitamin A, Omega 6 and phycocyanin (pigment). It is your best ally for keeping your skin youthful and elastic. It provides your body with rapid cell renewal. Beta-carotene, in addition to giving a healthy glow, has also been identified as an anti-oxidant and “anti-free radical” effective in preventing cancer risks.
5g of spirulina cover all of the recommended daily allowances.
It strengthens the immune system thanks to phycocyanin: a unique blue pigment that has immunostimulating and detoxifying properties studied in many laboratories. 5 g of spirulina provide 1000 mg of phycocyanin!
By its exceptional content of highly assimilable iron and vitamin B12, spirulina promotes the production of red blood cells. This helps to better transport oxygen throughout your body and thus fight fatigue and anemia. Athletes, amateurs or professionals, also notice an improvement in their performance.
5 g (1 teaspoon) of spirulina provide 100% of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) of B12 and most of the iron dose! The plant proteins it contains include the 8 essential acids that the body cannot manufacture. This is why spirulina allows harmonious growth and good muscle development.
5 g of spirulina provide as much protein as a slice of ham!
Spirulina is also a balanced and natural cocktail that provides you with all the elements essential for the proper functioning of the body. It contains trace elements such as copper, selenium, chromium, zinc, manganese, germanium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium.
On the other hand, spirulina provides very few calories and fat. It contains very little sodium, vitamin C. Being cultivated in fresh water, it does not contain iodine. Combined with a balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables, Spirulina will give you the best results.
WHO ARE THE CONSUMERS OF SPIRULIN?
Lovers of natural or organic products, vegetarians, athletes and, more generally, anyone looking for a good balanced diet.
Spirulina is also prescribed by naturopaths and nutritionists in cases of chronic fatigue, iron deficiency anemia, pregnancy, breastfeeding, convalescence, etc.
No contraindication or side effect has been observed to date. However, for the very rare people who tend to fix too much iron (hematochromatosis) or react to the protein phenylalanine (phenylketonuria), medical advice may be desirable.
HOW TO CONSUME YOUR SPIRULIN?
Spirulina can be consumed in cure of a few weeks or throughout the year if the need arises.
Take spirulina in the morning accompanied by a fruit juice rich in vitamin C. You can also sprinkle it on a salad, add it to soups, mix it with yoghurts, cereals, …
It’s up to you to invent your own recipes !!!
5 grams correspond to a teaspoon.
But be careful of where your spirulina comes from! A lot of spirulina is currently sold in pharmacies or other places selling food supplements, most often in the form of capsules or otherwise. If the base culture is not optimal, spirulina may turn brown in color, taste bad … which is always a bad sign. You have to make sure of the origin of the small algae and its culture. Otherwise, it will have no effect. Spirulina must be dried at low temperature and contain no additives or preservatives.
After opening, spirulina can be stored for several weeks at room temperature away from air, humidity and light.
5 grams per day for an anthology of nutritional wealth: Iron, vitamins, essential fatty acids, vegetable proteins ….
