I would like to tell you about something that has proven very beneficial to me. It’s called Spirulina.

Dear Mrs. Pearl,

I read your Created book and wish I could have your energy because if I did I think it would be easy to have joy. I am PG with my fourth child in four years. There is just not anything left in me to be cheerful with. Using a broom to sweep is hard enough, I can not imagine dancing with one. Am I a double dog sinner getting judged, or are you living in fluffy land? –June

Feeling like a Super Mom?

I know how you feel because, “I’ve been there and done that…” Having one baby after another and keeping up with daily chores and winter sickness, etc. does take its toll. When I was growing up, my mom would often bring to my attention a few ladies that she knew who had bodies damaged by polio or severely handicapping accidents. These women were exceptional because they did not succumb to their physical handicaps. Instead, they were continually looking for diet, health, and exercise to help them be as strong as possible.Being a “Super Mom” really starts in your spirit, and your attitude. “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). These super moms found their own secrets to conquering Motherhood. I would like to tell you about something that has proven very beneficial to me. It’s called Spirulina.Spirulina is a natural food source that has 58 times the iron of raw spinach and 28 times that of raw beef liver. This food was a significant part of the Aztec and Mayan diets. It contains more beta-carotene than any other whole food, and is very high in chlorophyll. It is 65% proteins and amino acids. This amazing food is the richest source of natural antioxidants of any whole food, containing every natural known antioxidant. NASA plans to grow this food on the space station, as it is one of the most efficient, oxygen generating foods in existence. It contains all the B vitamins, and is an extraordinary “transport” of other vitamins, allowing your body to actually benefit from all the other foods and vitamins you take. It is a blue-green algae that produces all its nutrients by harvesting sunlight. Since Spirulina has become so popular the world over, it is now cultivated in carefully controlled organic ponds, eliminating any possible toxicity. Spirulina.com is a great website with simple yet complete information on each step of the process of growing, harvesting, drying, and preserving the algae. It would be a good homeschool project just going through the site.

Eating Algae

How do you eat algae? Thanks to modern methods, it is much more pleasant than the way the Indians ate it. It now comes in a dried, powdered form that can be mixed with juice. My mom (from the old school that believes that good heath means suffering gross tasting stuff) mixes powdered barley green, spirulina and fiber in water and drinks it down. Ugh! Spirulina does come in tablets that are easily swallowed, and without taste, so that is how I take it.
My first two pregnancies and births were quite hard, and my health was poor. I tried SO many vitamins, pre-natals, and herbal teas to keep myself up and functioning normally. I’m sure most of them helped, but I did not feel or see any difference until I discovered the Supermom tabs (with Spirulina) during my third pregnancy. For the first few days I detoxed big time, as the Spirulina and vitamins began to flush my body of old toxins; then my journey back to health began. My third pregnancy and birth was so incredibly different than the first two. No water retention, no extra weight gain or bad circulation, and no fatigue. My hair grew thick and shiny (and never fell out after the birth) and my nails became hard for the first time in my life. I was so changed, my husband began to take the Supermom tablets! There is nothing exclusively female about the ingredients (just the name) and he wanted the same energy I was experiencing. Bingo! It seems to help him as well.
There are many places that sell Spirulina products. As in any product, some will be better than others. Do research and find what is best for your own family’s health. I use Supermom tablets that are available at Beeyoutiful.com/ngj
