Inferior Taste to Other Brands
Posted by Reviewer1534079 on Jul 10, 2015 | Verified Purchase
This arrived while I was in the middle of my first bottle of Nutrex spirulina, and the difference in taste was very noticeable. It helped me understand that Nutrex really tastes fresh and pure, while this didn't have a natural taste for me. This works out at $30 per pound, while Nutrex is $35 per pound and Healthforce Nutritionals (also excellent) is $39 per pound. For just $5-9 more per pound, you can get MUCH better products than this. I am not so concerned about this one being made in China in itself - although most production there is not as we would want it, this is not true of all brands, and this one seems to have a very low level of contaminants and heavy metals according to what I have read, but the taste is just lifeless when compared to Nutrex on Healthforce Nutritionals.
Organic, but not as tastey as Source Naturals Spirulina

I will switch back to Source Naturals Spirulina next time. It is not organic, but it tasted so much better than this one, and I noticed the energy boost within days.
Works well, but bloating effect

I noticed a strengthening of my bones, and some more energy, but also heaviness and bloating in my stomach, even when I diluted the day's dose in more than a litre of water. I am now getting my trace minerals by making Sole with Himalayan Crystal Salt, and taking a teaspoon in the mornings.
Tastes like sugar, but causes upset stomach

Tastes great - just like sugar (though hard to make something taste REALLY sweet with this), but I notice that my stomach is slightly upset after using it...
What my body had been waiting for!!!

Never tried Spirulina before, and was bracing myself for a horrible taste when I saw the thick green sludge when I mixed it with water (my wife won't touch it!!). But as soon as I put it in my mouth, I could have finished the whole bottle in one go. It was as if my body had been patiently waiting for this for years. Since starting to take it, I have felt a marked increase in energy. The serving size is generous as well (9 grams), which may account for the strength of the effect.
Seem quite effective

Definitely make a difference. My bloating and heaviness after food is less now.
Seems to work

I am using this as part of a candida-control programme, along with anti-candida herbs, probiotics, proteolytic enzymes and Spirulina. Together they have much reduced my symptoms.
Got this for my wife, who had been having problems with her bones at night. She noticed an improvement within days.
Fine for the purpose
Nice taste (though, personally, I prefer the chocolate flavour)
