All Natural Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica is a pure natural super greenfood, containing protein, betacarotene, and essential vitamins & minerals. Doctors and scientists recommend that we eat 9 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. For most people, this rarely happens. That’s one reason why you should take Hawaiian Spirulina every day. Spirulina is a “Superfood.” It is the most nutritious, concentrated whole food known to humankind. One 3 gram serving of Hawaiian Spirulina provides more antioxidant activity than 5 servings of fruits and vegetables! Spirulina has 2300% more iron than spinach, 3900% more beta carotene than carrots, 300% more calcium than whole milk, and 375% more protein than tofu. Comparing phytonutrient levels, Spirulina is 31 times more potent than blueberries and 60 times more potent than spinach! As the growers of Hawaiian Spirulina, we focus on ways to protect the superb antioxidant quality through all phases of production. Our patented Ocean Chill drying delivers twice the antioxidant quality of other Spirulina products. It is also extremely important that Spirulina is properly packaged. Our research shows that plastic bottle packaging was allowing oxidation to destroy precious nutrients. The Spirulina goes from the ponds to finished product in less than 30 minutes, then we use glass packaging with oxygen absorbers and sealing caps to ensure the maximum freshness and potency of nutrients. Our facility uses ocean water drawn from a pipeline that plunges 2000 feet into the Pacific Ocean. We supplement our Spirulina systems with this deep seawater as a source of calcium, magnesium, and all 94 trace elements. No other Spirulina is grown with such special water with its rich source of naturally occurring nutrients. Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica supports Eye Health, Immune Function, Healthy Cholesterol Levels, Cellular Health, and Increased Energy.

With this brand of Spirulina you are on to a good thing! Especially as far as taste and quality are concerned.
<< IN BRIEF - THE CONDENSED REVIEW >>
Simply put, after 20+ years of Spirulina usage, this is the best Spirulina I know of, at one of the the best prices (and shipping options) I have seen anywhere online and off-line. If great tasting Spirulina is what you are looking for, this is the one to buy. Forget the slightly cheaper non-Hawaiian varieties (from India, China, etc.).
If you've never had spirulina, try this one. If you've had (non-Hawaiian) spirulina and didn't like the taste, try this one. That's my review in a nutshell.
As is typical for me, I like to share detailed information where appropriate, so that people like yourself can inform yourself if you so desire. So... for my more in-depth info, please read on:
<< FULL REVIEW - THE FULL MONTY >>
Let me first put this review into a helpful context.
I have been eating Spirulina on an almost daily basis for approximately the past 20 years. Since my mid-teens I've been making big green looking smoothies every morning. My father and I affectionately refer to them as my "Swamp Water" or "Swamp juice".
This particular Spirulina is from a fantastic high-tech Spirulina production facility on the coast of the Big Island of Hawaii.Read more ›
I'm just a 43yo out of shape ex-marine and I have been taking NSP since October of 2011. For the first couple of months i didn't notice anything.
"notice" is the key word here. During the holiday season the flu and pneumonia
went through my house and my work place with a vengeance. My wife and several coworkers got sick enough to go the hospital. After the holiday's and into the spring it hit me. I did not get sick! not even a sniffle. I have not felt ill, off, crappy, or even light headed since October. i have had a couple of headaches nothing serious, but i do remember indulging some spirits the night before :)
Basically i have not been sick or even felt bad for over 6 months, even after getting only 3hrs of sleep last night i feel pretty good actually.
I will update this review in another six months. :)
Not a sniffle!
I cannot get sick! Flu, colds, dust... goes through my house and my work. The only thing i got "sick" of, was telling people (family, co-workers) to takes these. No one will listen. Oh well.
If you like being sick and miserable Do not take these. Just leaves more for us :)
Still not sick after 3 Years!
After being off this for one month, I had my labs repeated and everything came back normal. This is the only product that I take that I stopped; therefore, I am convinced that it was this specific brand of Spirulina that caused it.
There is only one certified producer of organic spirulina that I know of. That company is Parry Nutraceuticals (parrynutraceuticals.com) and they are located in Southern India and have received organic certifications under the USDA, the IMO in Switzerland and Naturland in Germany. Read the FAQs on their website -- it is very interesting. They also received a prestigious certification from the US Pharmacopeia which allows them to use the "USP Ingredient Verified Mark" on their spirulina powder. That mark ensures the quality of their product and the claims regarding purity, limits of contamination, etc. I also found out that they are the first spirulina manufacturer in the world to receive that designation.
I found out the the NOW Foods Organic Spirulina is from Parry Nutraceuticals and I also found out that the Swanson brand of Organic Spirulina (in tablets) is also from Parry. I'm sure there are many others too, but I didn't spend any more time looking into it since both of these items are available at the swansonvitamins.com website, which is where I typically shop for supplements.
