Why it works

The polysaccharides and essential fats of spirulina are quickly absorbed by the body and help release energy. Spirulina also promotes the growth of Lactobacillus bacteria (intestinal bacteria), which allow the production of vitamin B6 and the release of energy. Combined with coconut water, spirulina restores hydration levels and maintains electrolyte balance.
