WOW! clears the system, a bit weird at first but leaves you feeling great.
on 12 September 2013
Bought via Amazon for a friend, the second I've recommended it to.
I was, at first, a tad nervous about taking this Naturya Spirulina powder, allowing active algae into my gut, but three weeks in ... i'm feeling great ... My methods of ingesting the green charcoal-fine powder have been varied, and sometimes poo-pooed by others. But each morning I find adding half a teaspoonful to a pint of weak cordial fruit juice, blackcurrant, orange or lemon is palatable, though getting used to the green pond water like residue takes a while. Adding the powder to all types of smoothies too is a cinch. Also I have added the Spirulina powder to egg mix, making for some interesting looking green pancakes, omelettes and Scrambled egg!
For the first few days - as I was warned - there were a few (three) mild headaches,I took too much, and felt drunk. Expect a rumbling tummy, plus a bit of wind! Undeterred, after nearly four weeks my system seems to to have accepted this stuff and I'm a convert!
It's no placebo effect either. Head feels clear, aches and pains have gone, I've lost unneeded weight, all round I feel heaps better for taking it.
Do take care with the size of teaspoon you use! And there are other flavours available. But I wholeheartedly agree with others that this Organic powder does wonders, and eating a normal diet too is no problem, this stuff makes sure the nutrients any body needs are there.
