What can cause insomnia?
People do not sleep well when they have physical or emotional problems. For example, having muscle cramps will keep you awake. A stomach full of food will keep you awake. Sometimes there are exceptions to rules because all people are different.
Living conditions can cause insomnia, such as bright light through the window from the street lamp, dirty electricity in your house or apartment, a warm room, too soft bed.
The usage of alcohol can interfere with sleep. Sometimes people do not sleep when they are over-exhausted or have pain or migraine.
Emotional problems can keep people awake. Overthinking never helped to solve issues. It can only deepen them. However, most of us do not know how to escape the vicious cycle of recurring thoughts.
Problems at work or simple thing as the snoring partner can keep you awake.
Can Spirulina help with sleep?
Yes, Spirulina can help with sleep, especially if you experience hunger before bed but do not want to gain weight after putting inside a big piece of cake.
Spirulina satisfies hunger but does not add calories. It is one of the best ways to lose weight and not starve as it happens when you are on a diet.

Additionally, GLA can help with conditions of alcoholism, premenstrual stress, and aging.
Ten grams of Spirulina provides over 100mg of GLA. It is more than two capsules of evening primrose oil.
