Best brands for spirulina and chlorella?

Post  crincrin on Mon Sep 27, 2010 7:42 am

What should I look for when buying these things, and do you have any particular brand suggestions?

Also, does the brand matter that much when buying lipoic acid, or can I go with whatever's the cheapest at the health food store?

CrinCrin-

After researching Spirulina I decided to purchase Nutrex brand from Hawaii. After taking it I noticed my eyesight brightened. I'm still building a dose from 1t upward to 2t probably.

I'm using Jarrow Formulas Yaeyama Chlorella (comes as a powder), and strangely liking the flavour. I am tolerating it extremely well and it has done wonders for my digestion. I will start using spirulina soon as a multinutritional package, but have not yet decided on a brand. My preference is for powders/capsules. I have a thing about tablets not breaking apart and perhaps passing straight through me!

For Spirulina, get the nutrex branded one. Comes in a glass bottle, which is the way it should be stored to prevent degradation from oxygen.

I love Spirulina Smile

I just get a good quality, organic one from down at the health food store. The stuff doesn't taste great but.. I totally love it because I know it's good for me and makes me feel good when I have it!

I wanna start including it in vegan smoothies! ^^

Chlorella & Spirulina

I think Florida Herb House has some great chlorella and spirulina. They keep their green superfoods and algae stored in refrigerator rooms. This I like!

IME spirulina can be nauseating whereas chlorella has a mild flavor.

Any more opinions? I'm going to try the Nutrex brand, but it isn't organic. The organic ones seem to be from India or China. Sad

I don't know where you live and if this brand is available there, but I have been using an Australian brand called Synergy. All their products are organic and grown in some island in pacific in fresh steam water. They have Spirulina, chlorella and a SuperGreens product, which I love, which contains a combination of spirulina, chlorella, wheat grass and barley grass. I live in Europe and this brand , although not easy to find, it is here available.
