Please Note:
For best results , We strongly suggest customers to consume Spirulina directly only with water

We fully understand that new users or children do not always find it easy to take spirulina powder for the first time. If you or your family members have trouble with the natural seaweed taste and smell of Spirulina, this section may provide some useful solutions.

The following alternative ways of consuming Spirulina give you choice. However, it should be appreciated that mixed with other foods you will experience a reduction in some of the good enzymes and vitamins found in Spirulina. Although, this is still much better than not taking Spirulina or even taking other food supplements.

Of course the best way is to take Spirulina directly with a glass of water. This is similar to what we know of eating vegetables. If you don't cook your veges you get all the available nutrients and vitamins. If you cook your veges you loose some of the goodness, but still benefit in the long run. What we are offering is simply a choice in how you take your Spirulina.
