This is the first time that I am taking spirulina. It is not easy for a fussy eater like me to convince intaking supplements, but since a week I am taking spirulina every morning. I mix it in water and have it half an hour before breakfast. When I opened the packet then I loved the fragrance of spirulina, so I wanted to give it a try. It took me three days to settle the taste of spirulina drink on my taste buds as it was little different. But after fourth day, it seemed like a normal routine, so I enjoyed drinking it every day. I have noticed that digestion and energy levels have improved around 20-30% in this week's time. I am continuing the intake of spirulina as it seems good for my body.
I would rate Prolgae Sun Dried Organic Spirulina as 4.5/5. I am yet to see long terms results, so I am awaiting for them. I would recommend everyone to try spirulina at least once and see good results themselves. If you cannot intake as a drink or over food then you can have their tablets.
