Many people use spirulina in powder form. You can mix it into a smoothie but sometimes you may complain that it’s overpowering your favourite smoothie. If that’s the case you may want the tablets, usually you take around six tablets twice a day (be sure to check instructions from your Spirulina provider). If you do wish to take the tablets then find out how they were made, try to get them as organic and natural as possible. You may also find a variety of contraptions as this amazing food’s reputation grows. You will often find bars and energy balls that now contain this favourite algae.

Take a look in your trusty health shops. Many people purchase their batch of powder at Holland & Barrett whilst we prefer the Seven Hills organic tablets or powder. Another popular brand is Naturya. We are not affiliated to any of these companies and shops but we are merely suggesting for those that may not know where to start looking. You can also check local shops for some of the bars too.
