"Me and my husband have been taking Swansons' organic spirulina for many yrs now and LOVE the effects." ~product review by Simplifyx3

  • Great whole-food source of vegetarian protein, amino acids, B vitamins, antioxidants and more

  • Combines superfood microalgae with antioxidant carotenoid

  • Non-GMO, non-irradiated and 100% vegetarian supplement

Spirulina is a favorite whole-food supplement among vegetarians thanks to its high protein content (up to 60% by weight) and its complete profile of essential amino acids. It's also a source of energizing B vitamins, valuable antioxidants like superoxide dismutase (SOD), soothing GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), cleansing chlorophyll and more. Our certified organic spirulina comes from Parry Nutraceuticals, the world leader in high-purity spirulina production.

Astaxanthin, called the "King of Carotenoids," is among today's most sought-after supplements due to its endorsements from world-renowned scientists, recognized medical experts and famous media personalities. It's considered one of the most effective antioxidants (up to 500 times more powerful than vitamin E, 10 times more potent than beta carotene, and an impressive 5 times more potent than lutein). It's one of the few nutrients known to cross both the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers to nourish these important tissues. The astaxanthin found in our new Swanson Green Foods Organic Spirulina & Astaxanthin is patented for use in eye health formulas and carries with it all the documented health benefits of astaxanthin for cardiovascular health, brain health and beyond.

New Organic Spirulina & Astaxanthin combines the world's most popular superfood microalgae with the world's most popular antioxidant carotenoid in a scientifically validated, high-purity, certified organic supplement produced to the most rigorous standards. GMO-free, non-irradiated and 100% vegetarian, it's a sensible, affordable option for whole-food supplementation you can trust for your family's good health.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lots of Health Benefits It's a great value and it's healthy, too. March 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just 2 ingredients I love the fact that these contain the two ingredients with no magnesium sterate. Easy to swallow. January 27, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Organic Spirulina & Astaxanthin I have used it for a while and it seems to work. January 26, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by better than powder really great product. when ever i want a snack, i take 4 or 5 of these to get in the proper event horizon. works great. October 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greens, Protein, Antioxidants & More As we age, our bodies require more protein to make up for muscle loss. Spirulina & Astaxanthin from Swanson, provides digestible protein and antioxidants. Higher amounts of antioxidants are also needed as we get older, because our bodies need more help fighting off "free-radicals." These two combined compounds are perfectly matched for the battle of aging. And, as always, the Swanson price is affordable. September 27, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value This is a great value ! No fillers no additives and it's affordable! January 30, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by neat little green pill but smell horrible Started taking these pills but the strong odd is significant. Hopefully I'll see some positive results to offset the bad smell. October 14, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Only 0.25 mg of astaxanthin This is a great combination but I just noticed when trying to order and compare to Nutrex how little Astaxanthin is in 2 caplets. You should take 8 to 12mg per day so that would be a whole handful. Great organic Spirulina but price should increase and more Astaxanthin should be added. August 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by the best! This is one of my most powerful supplements for immune health. I highly recommend adding this to your daily nutritional regimen! May 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I like this item I take it about 2 weeks and definitely feel better, like having more energy. April 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really feel the difference I have taken both Spirulina and Chlorella for years. This particular pairing is amazing. I felt the difference the very first time that I took it, and continued to feel the effects every time I took it afterward. I started with two in the morning. Great. Then reduced it to one in the morning, because I could not sleep at night very well. I am a petite person and dosages effect me differently than maybe someone larger than me. So experiment with your dosage. I really like this product and I do feel a difference, it is very effective. April 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good detox supplement I like this for detox rather than so many green drinks February 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Good Antioxidant Value I have been looking for a good quality astaxanthin supplement to support vision health as well as a good algae like spirulina for detocification purposes. It was wonderful to find such a combined good quality product at reasonable prices through Swansons'. February 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Spirulina hummy Like getting the health benefits of spirulina in my diet February 13, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Spirulina If you are a person (particularly female) who may not store iron well, this product could be your answer. A wonderful plus is that the Spirulina helps your hair to grow wonderfully. Coming from a person who had all but given up on her hair, I can tell you it is quite miraculous. I just heard that the low iron shortage is particularly prevalent in darker haired individuals (brown, brunette). And, of course, astaxanthin is being recognized more and more for the health of eyes. So this product is a definite win, win!! February 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Far So Good I've just about completed my first bottle, I love the BOGO offer and I'm already appreciating this product. I like it because the products are organic and not synthetic as there is a lot of hype about synthetic astaxanthin. Anyway, I will probably keep this in my vitamin cabinet. February 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stuff The overall value and quality of this product is superb. This makes it much easier to get some very healthy foods in my diet to help round it out. I don't ever like to say that something "feels like its helping me" because that is to vague, but here that is just the case. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Organic Spirulina & Astaxanthin this is my first time ordering this but I always buy the regular spirulina from them this blend is a keeper for eyes too. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by An idea whose time has come Great idea for blending these two products. Should be a part of my daily routine for awhile February 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by SUPERFOOD!! Me and my husband have been taking Swansons' organic spirulina for many yrs now and LOVE the effects.I recently purchased Astaxanthin from another brand on this site after reading several articles;thereafter,when getting a new order together I was pleased to see this w/ swansons' organic spirulina...I am also VERY SATISFIED that my most recent purchase via buy 1 get one free has an expiration of 3/16 so that I can stock up at this SUPER VALUE!! January 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swanson's Spirulina and Astaxanthin I have been taking Spirulina and Chlorella for years, so I decided to give this a try since it has the added Astaxanthin, and both are organic. I've only been taking it for a couple of weeks, but I think that the combo is not only good, but helping me. It is a little higher priced, but they are both organic and Astaxanthin could possibly do wonders to our bodies. Best to get this this when it's BOGO and stock up. January 17, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Try to use green products I try to use vegetable products when I can. I eat a fair amount of organic raw greens, but I believe you can never get too much with the way our soils are depleted of nutrients. November 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bang for Buck I'm learning again about the importance of Spirulina. And this particular product really seems to be a great value for the price. I'll be making this a part of my daily life. November 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Organic Spirulina and Astaxanthin These are two things I'm constantly trying to get more of in my diet and here they're together in one easy-to-swallow supplement. November 15, 2013
