I was taking a multi-vitamin at the time and an anti-inflammatory medication. I started with 3000 mg of spirulina (now foods) and the first day I took two 10 mg tablets of the vinpocetine (Source Naturals, 1 in the morning and 1 at lunch). I didn't go to sleep until after 3 a.m. that night, attributing this to the vinpocetine. I decreased the vinpocetine to just one 10 mg tablet in the morning after that and had no more difficulties going to sleep. The vinpocetine definitely made me more focused and it seems to have helped my memory. I didn't expect such a quick reaction to the vinpocetine. Sometime during the first week of taking the spirulina I noticed that several bumps (calcium deposits) under my left eye had disappeared. I wasn't expecting or looking for this result. The calcium deposits had been there for years and I reasoned that it was the spirulina as I have not changed my diet. After that I started to look for other results. I had numerous skin tags around my neck which are thinning out and getting smaller. I was expecting to have them cut off at my next yearly check-up. I also had a bump on my leg a little bigger than a pencil eraser, approximately 1/8" above the skin surface. It is just above skin level now.

Feb.23, 2013: Since the initial review my wife has taken the spirulina. She was losing hair when showering in the mornings. I ask her to take the spirulina since she was so impressed with my results. Two to three days later she noticed a dramatic change in her hair loss. After about a week she was losing very little hair at all. She just recently stopped taking it and the hair loss started again. She has resumed taking the spirulina and the hair loss is starting to subside again. I hope this review helps someone.

Positive side I've been buying this product for years with great results! Since back in 2010 (which if you look closely 2010, 2011 is when most of the really positive reviews are)

Now the past year it's been completely different. Started getting really bad stomach pain but since I'd been taking these for so long I assumed it was just something I ate. After it kept happening I made sure to only take the spirulina and sure enough that's what was causing it. Stopped taking it and threw the rest away because taking something that's suppose to improve health isn't really working if it makes you sick.

Called the customer service and after a bunch of the usual back and fourth they told me they now source their spirulina from *India* instead of *Hawaii* that's a HUGE difference and anyone that's ever been to India, although it's a beautiful country, has massive sanitation issues.

I've completely stopped purchasing all of my NOW Foods products. Used to be a big fan of the MCT oil, K2, Super Enzymes, Vitamin D, Magnesium Citrate, etc, etc they were my go to brand. Seems to me that they've gotten to big over the years and I don't trust a health food company whose main concern is their bottom line.

Not going to name a brand and turn this into some advertisement but will strongly recommend that if you're going to take spirulina to improve your health purchase something that's sourced from Hawaii.

I started taking spirulina and chlorella tablets and my digestive system is much more efficient and I have a lot more energy. I prefer the tablets to powder due to the taste.

I had read all of the reviews on this product and did a lot of online research on Spirulina and was anxious to try it for myself. I am always very honest in my reviews so I wanted to make sure to try it for a while before writing anything.

I started taking 1 tablet and then added a tablet every couple of days so that my body could adjust to it gradually. I am also taking NOW Chlorella as well because I read about how well the products work together. What I do now is I take 2 of each tablet in the morning, 2 at lunch, and 2 before bed.
I am in love with these! Within the first few days I noticed an increase in energy and overall better feeling. I've been taking them now for about 3 weeks and my nails are growing faster than I've ever seen. They are also very hard and they look amazing. I am able to eat better because I don't get so many cravings between meals, so I've also noticed that I've lost a few pounds already. I have also noticed that I can focus on things better.

You have to make sure to drink a lot of water while taking these. I read about a lot of people have stomach issues while taking these. Let me be honest--during the first week I did and I also broke out on my face a little bit, but after doing research I learned that it sometimes happens while your body is detoxing and flushing toxins out of your body. I am not having these issues anymore now that my body has had some time to get used to both the Spirulina and Chlorella.

As for the taste--many people have said they taste gross. They just taste like seaweed to me. I don't mind the taste at all. It's not like I'm chewing the tablets or letting them sit in my mouth forever. I just swallow them with water and I'm fine.

Oh yeah, another great thing?
