About Organic Spirulina Powder

Spirulina is a nutrient rich blue-green algae packed with proteins, vitamins and minerals. This organic powder contains important amino acids including lysine, cysteine, methionine, phenylalanine and threonine. It has a high iron content (more than spinach) and contains more beta-carotene than carrots.

As a food Spirulina has been consumed in various forms over centuries in different parts of the world. Its protein constituent is in an easily digested form. It also contains minerals, vitamins, essential fatty acids and antioxidants that are not available to humans from any single food of vegetable or animal source known so far.

Spirulina is not a reliable source of vitamin B12, whilst it is rich in it, Algae contains B-12 analogues (false B-12) that can provide false results in B12 testing. The only reliable vegan sources of B12 are foods fortified with B12 (including some plant milks, some soy products and some breakfast cereals) and B12 supplements. Vitamin B12, whether in supplements, fortified foods, or animal products, comes from micro-organisms.

To start with the recommended dosage is ½ teaspoon a day, gradually increasing to 3 teaspoons, taken with food or around an hour before mealtimes.

Having read the benefits of this product I bought this to add to smoothies. I have now tried it a few times by adding less than 1/2 a teaspoon to smoothies. Each time it has given me and my partner a fever, loss of appetite, and sickness for the day. Would not purchase again.

Spirulina Powder is so awesome! However, to get it down the hatch personally I think smoothies are the best route, lol. Here's a video I found on YouTube that does a good job covering spirulina and some of its benefits. Just go to this link www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLDGuTusV6Q
Hope it helps and stay healthy!

Following a recommendation from a friend I added spirulina to my morning juice. It really does give an energy boost. I thought I would have to give up when I discovered how much it was adding to my weekly shopping bill. Then I cam across this site and found not only was it very competitively priced, but I could save money by buying in bulk too. Thanks.

I've been taking this with several other 'superfoods' so it's difficult to attribute specific benefits to individual products but I can confirm that this stuff is a potent energy booster which produces instant and significant results for me when drunk on its own with water. I mix 1 tablespoon with a large glass of water twice a day and knock it back, the taste is very strong and unusual if you're not used to it but you'll find yourself becoming quickly accustomed to the intense grassy flavour. Of all the 'superfoods' I've been eating I think spirulina lives up to it's hype better than most. Don't drink this too late in the day as the energy boost is comparable to coffee for me and will keep you up at night. Also be aware that this is an extremely fine powder and can be very messy - but is supplied in a neat plastic storage tub.  realfoods price is competitive but this stuff, like most other 'superfoods', is prohibitively expensive unless bought in bulk. Don't be tempted to buy non organic spirulina to cut costs though as this can contain dangerous heavy metals.

By Louis L M Last on 01/08/2013

Spirulina contains such a vast array of nutrients that it would be one of the first superfoods to add to one's diet. Some people even believe that you could survive on spirulina alone. Being 70% complete protein and rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, E and K, enzymes and chlorophyll, Spirulina is nature's own green food colouring. Make green lemonade (sparkling water + lemon juice + honey + spirulina) for the small and less small children in your life - I guaranty they will love it !

If anyone had told me that I would enjoy drinking fresh water green algae I would have laughed in their face, but actually this Spirulina from Real Foods tastes great and is doing me good.

By Freya Whitehouse on 05/12/2012

This made my smoothies very green, but if I close my eyes it tastes very good

Raw Alkalising Heirloom Tomato, Avocado and Spirulina Salad Recipe

Summary: Perfectly ripe heirloom tomatoes are so delicious that the best way to do them justice is to eat them as a salad, simply dressed with lemon juice and olive oil. This salad is a twist to that, with added spirulina and avocado. Spirulina crunchies only contain spirulina, they have no added ingredient, but somehow the way they are produced makes them taste different from powdered spirulina, and add a crunchy element to this salad. But of course, you can use spirulina powder if you can't get the crunchies. If you can, leave the sea salt out ; the salad is naturally and delicately salted by the addition of seaweed. You may use any sea vegetable you have on hand, I like to use dulse because it is thought to contain Sodium, Potassium and its other minerals in a ratio that is suited for human health.

Raw Vegan Snack Spirulina Cacao And Coconut Energy Balls Recipe

Summary: Raw vegan energy balls and bars are super easy to make, very versatile, and make great after dinner treats and midday or post workout snacks. For a basic fail-proof recipe, simply use equal amounts of nuts or seeds and dried fruits, and add a little of as many flavourings as you desire : food-grade essential oils, super foods or spices. These Spirulina, Cacao and Coconut energy balls are a great combination, as the sweetness of the dates, Brazil nuts and desiccated coconut perfectly balance the bitterness of the cacao nibs, and the relatively modest amount of spirulina beautifully blends in without being overpowering. Do try them as an evening treat or as a mid-morning / mid-afternoon or post-workout snack. Makes about 12 energy balls.
