Spirulina is an algae, and one of the most complete foods on the planet. It is a rich source of protein. This protein is abundant in all nine of the essential amino acids (those we cannot make for ourselves and so have to obtain from food).
The protein content of Spirulina makes it popular with people following fitness regimes. Of equal value is the vitamins it provides.
Spirulina is dried using a natural process of spray evaporation to create Spirulina powder. This process preserves its nutritional content. The spirulina powder is then compressed by a registered pharmaceutical manufacturer into tablets containing 500 mg of Spirulina.
Spirulina tablets are inspected and meet the standards set by the Medicine and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency. No bulking agents such as magnesium stearate, which may impact on the taste, are used.
We recommend that you take six tablets daily. If you are concerned by initial detoxification symptoms, you may wish to take a lower dose (for instance 3-4 tablets ) and build up gradually over two to three weeks.
Store your Spirulina Tablets in a cool, dry place.
