NEW TO SPIRULINA?
If you have just started taking Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina and perhaps are not used to a lot of greens in your diet, try half serves for the first few days and build up gradually. When taking CAPSULES or TABLETS, always drink a large glass of fresh water and remember to keep your daily water intake at 1-2 litres.
MORE INFORMATION FROM GREEN NUTRITIONALS
Our recommendations for spirulina usage come from our 20 years of experience and the results of research. There are no hard and fast rules regarding spirulina usage, it's safe in small or large quantities, and each individual will have a different requirement and preference. Just use the information below as a guide and experiment!
Unlike synthetic vitamin supplements, spirulina is a whole food, and as such is not consumed in small one or two tablet serves.
We also recommend that if you are new to spirulina, and perhaps not used to a lot of greens in your diet, you try half serves for the first few days and perhaps have it after food rather than on an empty stomach. A good time to use spirulina is after breakfast, then again mid afternoon.
Most people report increased energy levels after their systems adjust. You may take your spirulina all at once or more than once a day. Some people like to take it an hour before eating to satisfy their appetite.
Those with difficulty sleeping may wish to take their spirulina in the morning, rather than the evening, since the high protein content tends to wake you up.
For convenience and a quick nutritional boost any time, our tablets or capsules can be carried in a purse, backpack or suitcase. Keep some at home and some at work. Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina can go everywhere with you. A serve is six tablets or capsules, but you may prefer to use a bit less. Spirulina is a dry food so don't forget to drink plenty of water.
Kids and pets like to suck the tablets like lollies for the smooth buttery taste, then wash the dark green (chlorophyll) down with a big glass of water or juice.
