Spirulina plantensis is an edible food supplement version of a microscopic algae organism with a blue-green hue. Each organism is made up of a single cell, and can be found in a variety of different watery environments including marine, tropical, and salt pan regions.

This plant is considered one of the earliest forms of life and goes back many millions of years. It can be consumed as a food, or as a food supplement. Humans have been using it for centuries because it has a wide variety of vitamins and nutrients present in it and can help people sustain their lives and general well being on a budget. Even though it is difficult to farm, because of its popularity it is making way for a new type of farming dedicated purely towards microorganisms since this alone is such a useful food source.

Directions

Serving Size & Timing

It is suggested that spirulina be taken in servings of 5 grams, to be consumed three times per day for a total of 15 grams. When purchased in smaller supplies, spirulina only comes in packages of about 3-10 grams altogether. Buying it in bulk though will get you much more value for your money. It is suggested that there were some cultures in Africa (before the modern day of course) that had dried cakes made out of purely spirulina and consumed in excess of 250g (making up about half of what they ate per day) daily with no negative side effects.

Spirulina Side Effects

As long as suggested serving size is adhered to, negative side effects are unlikely to be experienced. However it is possible that minor side effects such as muscle pain, headache, and sweating may occur as a result of taking spirulina. Some people may be allergic to this product and of course those with allergies should avoid consuming it. As far as medicinal reactions are concerned, there has never been a reaction reported between spirulina and any other medication. However, growing spirulina in waters that are heavy with toxins can result in these toxins being absorbed by the plant and then being put in your body when you consume them. For this reason it is best to avoid spirulina that is being sold by anyone that you are not sure about.

Spirulina Bioavailability

This algae has a blue-green hue to it and has the taste and scent of marine water (such as you might smell at sea world). It can be combined easily with water or juice however it is important that before adding it to things such as smoothies, it is best to blend with a small bit of water first and then add it. It can even be added to foods such as dips, sauces, soups, and casseroles. This product comes in vacuum sealed bags to maintain freshness, but in order to preserve the function and safety of the bag itself and make sure that nothing else is harmed in between it may be best to put these bags in an area that is free from light, heat and moisture just to make sure potency is preserved.

But I need to find a good way to mix it.
It's thick and green.

It does what you've already read. good for health and the like, the taste is not overpowering but still very aquatic (salt and planty) good stuff I ordered it with some Blue green algee since i read both are good for a number of areas. overall health, digestion, gi track, and the like. I will be capsuling them however. The taste (unless you are accoustomed to it, which i am not) is the only reason i'm given this 4 rather then 5 stars. and hopefully by putting it in capsules it wont be an issue for much longer.

Bulk Supplements delivered reallllllly quick. (as i have heard is a strong point of theirs) great communicaiton and really nice review a product feature. I will be a returning coustomer and you will to once you sample some of there hundreds of options.

First of all, the I am extremely happy with Bulksupplements.com! I received an email confirmation and updates of the shipment tracking until the product reached my door. Perfect! Secondly, the product exceeded my expectations. It tastes fine (unlike stories I've read) and seems to be working great!! Much more energy and a sense of well being overall.

I bought the B-12, L Theanine, MSM, and the Tryptophan, and was given a free sample of the Spirulina. As with everything else I have tried from this company it is high quality. I use it in my smoothies in the mornings. It helps give me the energy to get started. I just can't say enough about Bulk Supplements..everything I have tried is pure, high quality, and affordable.

Wow! Within a few hours of taking my first serving I could feel it 'hit'. It seems to be something I can really use. I notice a difference when I don't take it. I did not find any problem with the taste. Guess I have eaten too many strange "health" foods!

On 3/24/2014 Patricia said...

Yes, the first thing is the taste, which you do sort of get used to. It's tolerable. It does mix fairly well, so that's a plus. I cannot honestly say I see a big difference in my health because of it, but I started out using only a half teaspoon and am now up to 1-1/2 teaspoons daily after 3 weeks. Maybe by the time I get to the recommended dose, which is one tablespoon, I will see a difference in my health.

This powder has an strong green color so don't freak out when you go to the stool. After couple of days of using it I started to get used to the taste and I can tell how my appetite has decreased a little and the muscles seem to be recovering faster after I started to use this product . (If it wasn't for the taste I would rate this product 5*)

Spirulina was recommended by 2 different people as a immune system supplement for my Percheron gelding's skin problems. After a month, it seems to be helping. We hope that the Spirulina, with garlic, will help get him through the buggy, Florida months to come. Will update review in another month.

Mixes great. One of the best for your body, but not your taste buds. Overall a great product, has a very good, dark, blue-green color.
