Keep reading for everything you need to know about this magical blue powder.
What is Blue Majik?
Derived from Spirulina, Blue Majik is a chemical-free extract of the blue-green algae Arthrospira platensis. E3 Live, the company behind the proprietary extract, touts that the brightly hued powder contains both phycocyanin (PC) and non-PC compounds, which is not found in regular Spirulina.
According to the company, PC is “clinically shown to relieve physical discomfort, helping consumers feel better and enjoy an overall better quality of life”.
What are the Health Benefits of Blue Majik?
Similar to spirulina, Blue Majik is known for being exceptionally nutrient dense. It is rich in antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins (specifically B12 and E), protein, zinc, copper, and selenium.
Other reputed health benefits of Blue Majik are:
- Improved digestion
- Increased energy levels
- Repairs nerve tissues
- Promotes brain health
How to Use Blue Majik
Blue Majik is seriously trending right now, but as everyone who has tried Spirulina on its own knows, it doesn’t taste great. However, when mixed into a smoothie, the taste is easily masked. Besides making beautiful smoothies, Blue Majik can also be added to raw desserts, dips, spreads, and yogurt.
However you take it, Blue Majik is sure to brighten your food and drink. And with its impressive nutritional profile, it’s almost certain to be hitting a juice bar or cafe near you soon!
