Excellent green superfood
 December 30, 2012
"There are some good spirulina products out there and I have used them for years. This product has an excellent glaze over the tablets making them easy to swallow. There is no fishy or oceanic smell that some other brands have. The nutritional value and the many benefits of this superfood is well documented. The quality of this Vitacost product really impresses me and I will be a regular buyer."

Recommend 3,000 mg instead
 April 6, 2010
"I have been using the NSI Spirulina for a few months now. I have used the 3,000 mg tablets for most of the time. I changed to the 1,000 mg and am greatly disappointed as they break. They are long green tablets as opposed to the 3,000 mg circular tabs. They both need 6 tablets to equal 3,000 mg so I would recommend the circular tabs as they remain intact."
