This spirulina is USDA certified organic, so you can be sure that it's free of microcystins, toxic metals, and harmful bacteria, which may cause gastrointestinal disturbances and, in the long term, liver cancer.

It's beneficial in treating diabetes, anemia, heart disease, high cholesterol, obesity, stress, chronic fatigue syndrome, anxiety, depression, gastrointestinal conditions, indigestion, morning sickness, nausea, bloating, flatulence, constipation, colitis, colon inflammation, oral leukoplakia, tics, dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, acne, as well as other conditions. Rich in chlorophyll, one of nature's most powerful detoxifying agents, spirulina removes toxins, heavy metals, and radioactive isotopes from the blood, boosts and strengthens the immune system, improves eye health, alleviates allergies and protects against allergic reactions, reduces inflammation, aids digestion, helps improve the absorption of dietary nutrients, prevents heartburn and acid reflux, relieves nausea and bloating, helps stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin levels, prevents blood sugar spikes, normalizes blood pressure, lowers triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, protects against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, helps maintain healthy bones and teeth, and even reduces the risk of cancer. It's a great product. After I started taking it, I've noticed that I’ve become more energetic and resilient, my headaches and acid reflux don’t bother me as much as they used to, I sleep better and feel rested and refreshed when I wake up. Glad I discovered it.

ok there is only 30 tablets and we have to take 3 times a day. cannot see any effect after taking 10 days. perhap 10 days is not enough to give any review.

it is a dietary supplement, not sure what it is suppose to do. I read it makes you less hungry, or less craving for sweets/food. didn't do anything for me. only reminded me the smell of sushi/ fish food and it had an after taste.

spirulina has been around for a long time but I believe is under rated as a health product.

Got this as a sample so I can't say how effective it is - 30 tablets ( = 5 days supply) is simply not enough to get any impression, but I plan to get a standard big bottle to give it a real try.

Will buy a new bottle, it doesn't taste weird and easy for me to swallow. It does makes my clean clear from pimples or acne. Really does detoxification well.
