WHY DO CELEBRITIES LOOK SO GOOD?
Every wondered why all celebrities & film stars in the fashion industry look so perfect & have such perfect physiques’. People generally try to pass off the attractive physique of these Celebrities by saying, “Ohhh, they have a lot of money, so they have a lot of resources & beauticians to make them look great”. But have you ever wondered if there was something else they were doing, that helps them looking eternally young, attractive, fit, energetic along with a unblemished skin, despite their tight schedules?
Have you ever tried to think beyond the generic, common & regular diet perceptions like rice, dal, roti, salad, veggies etc when it comes to diet? What is it that these celebrities do which makes them look so evergreen and so timeless? Do they diet, do they starve, how many rotis do they eat? Which dal is the best? How many carbs do they cut? Which protein supplement do they consume? Is this good, or is that good? The confusion is endless & one ends up in the middle of nowhere.
Forget it all. The answer lies in one big area for sure. The area which over-rules going to the Gym, burning calories while running, jogging or swimming. The area which is the 70% element when it comes to remaining fit. Well, you guessed it right. Its the area of a well-balanced, wholesome & high quality diet. A diet rich in nutrients & micronutrients, Vitamin-A, Vitamin-B, Vitamin-C, Vitamin-D, Vitamin-E, Omega-3 & Omega-6 and most importantly a diet with high quality pure & natural protein.
THE CONFUSION OF PROTEINS:
To lose weight & to look fit, most people or Gym trainers suggest one or another synthetic protein powders. Their logic is that these protein powders are low in carbohydrates & fat, a person does not gain weight which causes the body to shed it’s pounds & one is able to lose weight fast. Several options are available in these synthetic protein powders like: Whey Protein, Whey Isolate, Whey Raw, Whey Concentrate, Whey Blend, Soya Protein, Slow Absorbing, Fast absorbing, Proteins for Men, Proteins for Women, different Flavors, Sweetened, Bland etc. Feeling dizzy already? I’m having a headache too just thinking of all this chaos. Imagine what happens when one has to decide between all these options with no surety whether the protein will suit your body or not.
This is further compounded when you get to know that a majority of the protein brands available in India are either fake, adulterated, counterfeit, unregistered or unapproved. Sounds terrifying. Doesn’t it? Well that’s the fact for a majority of Protein Powder brands available in India. Plenty of articles are available on this subject on the internet. You can use your fingers to walk the internet with your keyboard and find out for yourself on this topic. You’ll be shocked at the number of counterfeit products available in India.
But it doesn’t stop here. In their desperation to give fast results, many brands are known to add Steroids or Hormones which can cause a lot of health problems especially some of which may be irreversible. Not to forget the bad effects that these products may have on your body, especially the Kidneys, which are one of the most important & critical organs of the body playing a role in the filtration & purification of the human body.

POSITIVE HEART HEALTH: Plenty of references are available today, where Spirulina has been found to be of great benefit in improving Cardiac health. Spirulina can protect the heart as it cuts down cholesterol significantly. Spirulina Supplementation has been known to cut down cholesterol, assisting lower risk of arteriosclerosis & lower chances of stroke. As a supplement that boosts energy, Spirulina can help reverse the changes & damage done to the heart due to a poor & inadequate diet thereby helping it pump better.
GREAT BODY DETOX: What good is a Super-Food if it cannot detox the body? Spirulina is a heavy metal detox & eliminates heavy metals, especially Arsenic from the body. Not only this, Spirulina is a great body Alkalizer. This unique property of Spirulina helps to remove toxins & pollutants from the body. Spirulina is very high on Anti-Oxidants, which help to protect the body from degeneration & harmful effects of pollution.

The high nutritional value of Spirulina & the Detoxifying properties of Spirulina can greatly support health by energizing & purifying the body thereby protecting it from external damage while making it strong internally, at the same time keeping us sharp & focused always.
GENERAL WEAKNESS & LOW ENERGY: The high stress life due to work pressures, deadlines, fight for survival, mad competition, changing lifestyles are becoming common now a days. These new times have brought forward newer types of problems especially on the health front. Everyone is on the rush & nobody we see now a days has time to enjoy a peaceful, wholesome meal & find time for adequate physical activity. Even the food quality is at times doubtful due to adulterations which is further complicated by high pollution. It is no secret that India is home to a majority of the most polluted cities in the world, with 6 major cities figuring in the Top-10 Most polluted cities in the world, as per a recent survey. While this is no reason for pride, so much pollution definitely impacts the quality of air we breathe, the water we drink & even the natural dietary produce available for us. No wonder never ending tiredness, weakness, unexplained tiredness etc are so common to see now a days, even in the young population. Spirulina helps to reduce the ‘Time to Fatigue’ significantly.
IMPROVING SKIN TEXTURE SKIN QUALITY & HAIR: Our skin reflects our health. Ever wondered why all the celebrities are glowing with radiance, have so such supple skin& looking so ageless? We all know that Proteins are the basic building blocks of life. The richness of Spirulina with High Quality Protein, Multi Vitamins, Minerals, Amino Acids, Beta Carotene are a great boost for beautiful looking skin. Being a very rich source of Chlorophyll, Spirulina acts as a natural cleanser of the body resulting in a healthy skin benefitting the texture of your hair as a bonus. Your smile will compliment it all & make you look more radiant always.
HOW TO KNOW WHICH SPIRULINA IS BEST: Spirulina is also known as ‘The Blue Green Algae’ due to its natural colour. Spirulina is grown only in water & does not come in contact with land. It therefore requires very large sized pools with controlled sunlight for it to give you all the expected health benefits.
For the best quality Spirulina, it has to be grown in a pollution free, controlled environment away from other industries to avoid any toxic affluents or hard metals. The entire process is very delicate & requires special cultivation & harvesting technology which has to be automated majorly. This automation helps to maintain consistency of quality which is very important for the best health benefits.
Moreover due to all the operational challenges, it is important to ensure that the Spirulina being considered for consumptions must be Organic, Pure, GMO Free, Gluten Free, Free from Pesticides & Herbicides.
To ensure this, always prefer a brand which is certified by USDA Organic, EU-Organic, ECOCERT Certified, Control Union Certified, FSSC 22000 Certified, India Organics-NPOP Certified & to top it up, also KOSHER Validated. All these are the top most quality & organic certifying agencies in the world & assure a safe product for long term use.
Always ask for these certifications when you decide upon a brand of Spirulina for your personal use. The absence of these certifications should ring a bell of concern in your mind & you should avoid using the product as it may not be pure and not safe for long-term consumption.
ORGANIC SPIRULINA TABLETS USES & IT’S DOSAGE?: Organic Spirulina tablet is very safe to use & equally suited for Men & Women. However it is important to keep in mind that to get the best benefits from any supplement, it must be used long term with discipline. Taking a natural supplement for a few days is as good as not taking it at all.
Spirulina can be safely used from 1 to 8 Grams daily. Different dosages are recommended for different health goals. Some of the suggestive dosage regimes for the indications we discussed are as follows:
- PRE OR POST WORK OUT SUPPLEMENT: 2-4 Grams Daily (4-8 Tablets of 500 MG each)
- WEIGHT MANAGEMENT: 2 Grams Daily (4 Tablets of 500 MG each)
- GENERAL WEAKNESS & LOW ENERGY: 2 Grams Daily (4 Tablets of 500 MG each)
- GREAT BODY DETOX: 2 Grams Daily (4 Tablets of 500 MG each)
- POSITIVE HEART HEALTH: 1 Gram Daily (2 Tablets of 500 MG each)
Organic Spirulina tablets is available in various forms as follows:
Tablets: 500 MG
Capsules: 500 MG (Veg or Non-Veg Outer)
Dry Powder: Dried & packed (100 GM, 500 GM, 1 KG, 5 KG)
While there are different preferences upon different mindsets, the effect is similar with all forms. Spirulina is a tasteless, odorless product. So it does not have compliance issues & can be used easily by everyone. While tablets & capsules are available in dosage of 500 MG, powders are available in packs of 100 GM, 500 GM, 1 KG or even 5 KG. Consumption depends on individual health needs & objectives.
I personally prefer & recommend organic spirulina tablets 500mg each because they are smaller in size & easy to swallow. Moreover there is an assurance of being 100% pure Vegan, besides offering a precise dosage. Capsules on the other hand are a bit bigger in size, have a peculiar odour which everyone does not like & are available in Non-Vegetarian, Vegetarian or Gelatin forms. The Non-Vegetarian Capsules can be a bit cheaper. Furthermore, these tablets or capsules come in packs of 60’2, 100’s, 120’s etc.
A pack of 120 Tablets of Organic Spirulina tablets is best as besides being more economical, it is a complete monthly quota of Spirulina, thereby ensuring continuity in supplementation. So make your choice carefully.
So now that you know all about Organic Spirulina tablets benefits for health, what are you waiting for? Choose your brand best suitable for you, top up your energy quotient & join the many celebrities who are already enjoying the benefits of this exceptional & wonderful health secret hidden for so long. Go ahead & surpass yourself everyday.
Stay Healthy, Stay Happy!!
