    5 stars based on the health value matched with the cost savings. If you don't mind making shakes or filling empty capsules, this stuff is great. (It does taste quite a bit 'green.' haha) I used to buy the pressed pills, but this stuff is half the price. It is a Superfood containing an unusually high amount of protein, between 55% and 77% by dry weight. A complete protein, containing all essential amino acids. It is superior to typical plant protein, such as that from legumes. Contains vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (nicotinamide), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folic acid), B12 and vitamins C, D and E. MUCH BETTER THAN FISH OIL, studies have shown babies are more developed when given micro-algae over fish oils! Get the nutrients first hand, from their source. ***VS: these other customers are right, we deserve to know More about the source!!!

    This stuff is really good for you! Be careful when you blend it though, it gets lumpy! Theres nothing more gross than bitting in a dry lump of spirulina! Also, don't be turned-off by the smell. It smells HORRIBLE! But trust me, you can hardly taste it when you mix it correctly. Add about a half teaspoon to your next smoothie!

    >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2012-01-02
    Typically I blend my smoothie first, then add the spirulina and blend again. Clump free! Hope this helps!

      I use this product everyday in my morning smoothie. I combine this with my protein and almond milk in my magic bullet. I have never had any issues with clumping. It has a 'green' taste, but I don't mind it. I have been feeling great since I have started this product. I will continue to use it.

                Dr Christopher Hill researched spirulina in the 70's..I have seen 4 full pages of the vitamins (all of the b's) amino acids, micronutrients, etc...it is considered the most complete food, even by the FDA. It is a complete protein, with almost no fat, and is immediately digested...(beef takes a full day) I make a smoothie every morning with a juice, banana, fruit and a huge heaping amount of powdered Spirulina...I do not have sugar drops, afternoon lags,and my energy is sustained all day long... OK,the down side... it looks like a blue green mess...get over it! You will love how you feel! I use vitamin shoppe because it is the best value I have found.

                    I put spirolina in a smoothy. I use a blender so I have no clumping. I haven't noticed a bad taste or smell. Usually I have frozen bananas in my drink so they make it sweet. An easy way to get good nutrition!

                                    Spirulina Powder by Vitamin Shoppe does not mix easy with water or juice. The taste is unbearable, and leaves a black residue that looks like dark charcoal. I had to use it in orange juice or apple sauce to get it to mix somewhat. I recommend you use the capsules instead.

                                    Elizabeth E: I have purchased this before and I find it the most economical form of spirulina. As others mention in the reviews, it smells bad, doesn't taste too good and doesn't mix easily. However, using it in a smoothie and blending it w/an immersion blender make it totally acceptable. For those who want the benefits of spirulina and are willing to go to a little more trouble in order to save some money. Dec 17, 2012
                                    Travis C: It's a superfood. I take it in the morning upon walking up. Its worked wonders for me. Dec 10, 2012

                                    Mary G: The label says that it's manufactured in North Bergen, New Jersey. It doesn't SAY that it's organic, and these days, I think that if it WERE, it would tout it on the label. Apr 25, 2013

                                    Anne Marie C: It says that it is manufactured for the Vitamin Shoppe in North Bergen, NJ 07047. Nothing says that it is organic. Apr 25, 2013

                                    Teri L: The package does not say WHERE it is manufactured, only that it was manufactured FOR Vitamin Shoppe. The package states that it is a "natural food supplement", but no where does it state that it is organic. It does state that there are no other ingredients other than Spirulina in the powder, unlike the Spirulina capsules that state they are "California grown natural Spirulina" but which contain many other ingredients (I assume to bind the tablets together). The Spirulina powder also states that it is appropriate for most vegetarians. Apr 25, 2013

                                    Stephen T: Although I've been taking the Vitamin Shoppe brand of Spirulina for over 20 years, I'm not sure of the country of origin. For some odd reason I've assumed it was from fresh water ponds in Hawaii but have since learned from a quick online search that it is grown in many countries including China. Sorry I have no more definitive information. Jul 1, 2014

                                    Teri L: It doesn't say anywhere on the container for the Spirulina Powder. Vitamin Shoppe's Spirulina Capsules are from California. Jul 1, 2014

                                    A Vitamin Shoppe customer asked: Is the spirulina the same as bio green? Nov 6, 2013
                                    Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
                                    Teri L: Spirulina is a fresh-water alga/bacteria with a 60% protein content, many minerals including iron, calcium and magnesium, and vitamins A, B, C, D, and E. I've never heard of bio green (other than as a cleaning product and I'm sure that's not what you're referring to). Nov 7, 2013
