My DH tried one of my spirulina smoothies and made a face. I don't notice anything. Just how green it gets. ;)

I am a low fat raw organic vegan and my taste buds are cleaned up. Im also not on meds and dont consume any caffeine. Anything green tastes great.

Spriulina and Chlorella both in one smoothie? I'd rotate them. 1 day Spirulina, the next Chlorella unless after you do the rotation for a month or two you are craving both at the same time. Chia seeds are great in a smoothie.

I have been looking into adding spirulina, chia seeds and chlorella to my diet. Do you guys think all 3 are necessary?

Cw: are tou eating mostly raw organic??? A juice feast for 92 days is a powerful healing modality. Have you tried thesr two things? You mentioned you've tried everything.

I personally find that the body heals given the proper tools.

Well, that sounds like a wonderful way to be healthy.
I have been very sick for the past 2 years, and mostly for the past 6 months. I have been grasping for ideas just trying to feel better but I have hopes and alot of prayers so my intent is to feel better as soon as possible. :)

Not sick, just want to be a as healthy as I can be. I am undecided right now as to what I'm going to do with the tablets I got. I am taking blue green algae and chlorella, and that may be enough.

Are you 'sick' too? I am so desperate to get better. I am assuming that is why you are ordering this product? You don't have to say if I am being too personal.

Yes, that's why I ordered the powder form. I'm trying to get away from tablets, etc. I just looked at the label, and you're right. A maintenance dose is about 6 tablets a day, and you can do up to 40 if you're using it as a protein source!

I saw that! I started to order the tablets but changed my mind. I am taking SO many supplements right now...I am worried about my liver and the thought of just even one more tablet...UGH! Also, did I read it wrong or don't you have to take several a day? (might have read that wrong)

Woofie, I just placed an online order for it a few days ago and received it today. I have always gotten the powder form and been fine with that, but they sent me tablets by mistake. They sent an accompanying apology and stated that you can either chew the tablets or just swallow them and they will dissolve in your stomach. I think I will keep them and try them out. I was using the powder in my smoothies, and you're right, it does alter the taste. At first I didn't mind it much, but lately my tastebuds must be changing because I really like the taste of my greens to come through. Anyway, tablets are another option.

No. It is not a grain product. It is an algae.

Cw spirilina is a superfood. It is a fresh water algae. Loaded with mega nutrients. Its melecular structure forms a spiral henceitz name. Algae is one of the best things to add to your diet. Klamath lakes is the best os the best of supergreen algae.

Thanks Karen, I WILL try your suggestion - will order it this afternoon.

CWPRAISINJC1 - LOL, can't really explain it, just makes my smoothie taste putrid. It's a green powder, a very concentrated deep emerald green powder. YUCK. I have a friend who wants to try some, I'm just going to give her the jar I bought.

Funny. My mother was just telling me yesterday to try it. Is it in the form of protein? Sorry you hate it though. Does it have an after taste?

Yes. Chlorela, wheatgrass, klamath lakes blue green algae. The last one over all the rest. The taste is spectacular. The benefits are off the charts. Get that specific brand. Id do the ooeder and try it. It isnt cheap but worth more than the price.

Ugh....help! I really, really don't like the taste of spirulina. The first day, thought it was not too bad, sort of just okay. Second day, I thought, Hmmmm, I don't care for this. But by now, I really hate it. It is ruining my smoothies. I love my smoothies. I look forward to my smoothies, I don't want that to change! I've even gone from 1 TBS to 1 tsp and I still can't stomach the taste and how it ruins my smoothie (for me.) But, I really want to get the benefit of the spirulina so....

1. Is there any other food/supplement I can take (or a tablet form) instead? OR
2. Is there another way of eating it aside from smoothies where it might taste better? OR
3. Can I do without it?
