Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica
Like the taste and consistency. It blends easily in smoothies and no funky taste.

Really excellent Spirulina
Probably my favorite spiralina, taste-wise as well. A super duper superfood.

The best spirulina I know of
I feel good about the quality and safety of this spirulina because it is grown in Hawaii, not India like some others. It also tastes much better than some other brands. It has a sort of seaweedy taste that most people can't tolerate, but if you like fish, seafood, and seaweed, you might like the taste. I eat it by the spoonful rather than putting it in a drink and ruining the taste of the drink -- just be careful not to accidentally inhale and choke on the powder. A 1/4 tsp. or so is also a great substitute for green food coloring in mint smoothies or anything mint flavored.

I have been taking spirulina in one form or another for over a decade. I bought this brand exclusively for the majority of that time. Great energy booster and I had a feeling of overall well being while using it. I believe there are more than one kind of Spirulina and the pacifica seems to work best for us.
I went to a cheaper pill form for a short time just being a cheapskate. Big mistake. No energy or feeling great from those if you can get enough down to matter. I bought another bottle of this and the first day taking it I felt wonderful again. I learned my lesson and will never stop getting this one again.
Kudos to Swanson for getting us the best prices but that alone wouldn't keep me coming back...customer service matters and has made me continue to shop here bi weekly!

This spirulina seems to make me feel great all day. It provides energy that lasts. A natural way to get your vitamins! Mix with a beverage (not a plain bev) and you can't taste it. I'd avoid a plain bev, like milk, b/c then you can taste the product. Anything else is mixes nicely.

Get your Greens!
I put a teaspoon of this in my green drink smoothie every day. I can tell the difference in my overall well-being when I don't take it. The micro-nutrients are amazing. The price is better at Swanson's than anywhere else too.

I've tried so many different spirulinas over the years and researched organic vs natural and still don't know what to think. But I like the idea it is grown in Hawaii, does that count? It tastes very good. It is a really good price. I've bought it three times so far, I take some every day and it is the brand i'm now sticking with.

Mahalo (thank you) to Nutrex for a very nice Hawaiian Spirulina product. I am a BIG Spirulina fan - - - have been for decades. I use 1 heaping tsp of Spirulina daily in one of my Green Healthy Cocktails. I always start my day with a Great Green Cocktail. Sometimes I have another mid-afternoon if I feel I need it. I always get good and quick results - - - feeling more ALIVE almost immediately.
Over the years / decades, I have used several of the top brands of Spirulina powder. (I much prefer the powder to taking 15 or 20 Spirulina tablets.) This Nutrex is right up there among the best. It has a nice mild flavor and readily shakes into my drink with ease. I have found that the different brands (The one I was using before this was from NOW foods, and it is excellent.) have slightly different tastes and properties. . . . However, no deal breakers.
Taste is an individual thing, and for me, I think both Nutrex and NOW taste good, albeit a tad different with the Nutrex being a bit 'milder.' Personally, my taste buds prefer what I discern as a little bit bigger and bolder flavor from the NOW Spirulina. But then across the board, I prefer bigger and bolder flavors in everything. So give them your own taste test, and decide which you prefer. No losers here.
This is a Big-Time, Major-League Nutritional Powerhouse. Be good to yourself. From a 'food' standpoint, it doesn't get any better than this. Aloha. . . . And you'll be saying, "Mahalo" for this great Spirulina, and for the tip to use it.

I have been using this product for 2.5 years and i have found that Swanson Heath Products has the lowest price that i have found. The quality is always Fresh and the Service is Excellent.

We had stopped dreaming and sleeping well. when we started taken this we slept great and had vivid dreams again. If we had to choose only 1 supplement to take it would be this one. It has made the most amazing change in us than any other supplement we've taken.

I do not feel a big difference in energy after taking this product, but the flavor is great. It is mild and easily mixes in smoothies or juice, but even tastes good in water.

The Best Spirulina!!!
I have used this brand of spirulina exclusively for decades. In my opinion this company provides the best spiralina product on the market! We use in daily in our healthy smoothies! My kiddos LOVE it! Don't let the green color scare you. Just add frozen strawberries and it becomes a fun shade of purple. We call it a Barney smoothie!

Love this one
I have been taking spirulina as daily supplement for boosting my energy and also because its a good source of protein, iron and vitamins.
I recommend it for people who matters about feeling better naturally.

Excellent quality product
Compare the nutrient label with other Spirulina products and this has the most bang for the buck! I also can tell the difference if I run out and stop taking it for a short while. I put it in my morning smoothie and I like the taste and the nutritional kick.

Great Protein Source
I've been using this for almost a year now and I really like this. It's great for putting into smoothies to get your plant based protein. I also just mix it with fruit juice if I don't have time for the smoothie. Have great energy when using this product. Will continue to use this great product and as always Swanson has the best price I've found.

I love it!
I had the bottle about a week before I ever tried it. I had been taking the tablets and was very hesitant to try the powder since I would no longer be able to swallow it without tasting it.
I confess that I was scared for nothing. I mix it with my favorite pineapple juice and its great! My kids like it too.

There are cheaper spirulina powders, but this has a higher nutrition profile, so I feel that it is worth the extra cost. A little goes a long way too. I add it to my morning smoothie. It doesn't give a funny taste and I feel like I am getting a good kick of nutrition.

One of my favorites. My morning is not the same without a tablespoon in my wake up beverage

Really like this brand- will stick with it.

Been using this for about 9 months, it doesn't have a fishy taste like other brands do. I take it mixed 50/50 with Jarrow Chlorella. Yes, it does taste like alfalfa but I hate taking pills. I bought empty capsules to fill for my husband since he's not into drinking alfalfa : ) It is also very good mixed with grapefruit juice since it's got a tartness to it that masks the grassy flavor better than orange juice; plus GF juice is lower in natural sugar than OJ. The combo is awesome for my skin, always looks the best if I take this on a regular basis. I take 1 tsp. of each almost daily; which is about 3-4 grams each chlorella and spirulina. Articles I have read say these 2 compliment each other.

This stuff is magic
This is without question the best spirulina on the market today for nutritional content and quality. having tried most of the better spirulina brands. this is hands down THE BEST.
i used to buy RBC, but nutrex is half the price, and has superior nutrition.
it improves overall well being, increases energy and supplies too many vitamins and minerals to list.
my skin is brighter, my hair is shining, my nails are stronger to name but a few benefits.
i would never be without it now.
