Also known as blue-green algae, spirulina is an organism that grows in both fresh and salt water.

It became popular when NASA proposed it could be grown in space and used by astronauts to supplement their diet.

It is thought to influence blood pressure and cardiovascular health by increased production of the signaling molecule nitric oxide.

In healthy individuals, a daily dose of 4.5 grams for six weeks was shown to lower blood pressure. Given this finding, it’s likely to be even more effective in those with high blood pressure, although more clinical trials are necessary.
