I began taking spirulina back in 2008. I came across an article that talked about the benefits of this amazing “super food” so I decided to give it a try and I am so thankful I did. I can honestly tell you that up to this date, I haven’t… had a cold or experienced any other related health issues, not even after spending many weeks in hospitals taking care of my youngest daughter. Of course, I can’t say that taking spirulina has been the only reason why I haven’t gotten sick but, I do believe that it has been a contributor to my overall well being. The more I learn about this blue green algae, the more amazed I become by its health benefits. Always wishing you the best dear friends:-) Love, Ms. Jeannie.
