Glad I discovered it.

My mother loves this, she is in her mid 70's and if she can't make her green smoothies on that day she will have spirulina for her energy.

I wanted to try spirulina for a very long time and this was the perfect oportunity. For a trial version I can´t see a much difference but I´ll order a full version because I´m satisfied.

I had cotton in my pack. Is this normal? Is it hygienic? First I thought there were bugs inside that made a cocoon !!! Cotton prevents moisture suppose, but is this the way ?? About the effects of tablets - I can not say anything positive or negative. The pack was only a sample - 30 tablets. You need a longer period of effect. I'm not sure I order from this brand - because of cotton mostly! I give five stars because it is certified organic

Spirulina itself is fantastic. This product is also great for it's price, but if you want strong antioxidant effect, Spirulina should be combined with Chlorella and other green herbs.
