Just got Chlorella & Spirulina

Spirulina and chlorella are best mixed in fruit juices. Apple juice, pineapple, and blck cherry are the best I’ve found. Once you get used to them, you don’t taste either of them at all, even mixed in water, which I sometimes do. I even sometimes crave the chlorella and will eat it right off the spoon.

It’s funny that there is just as much hype against algae as for it. I have no idea why. I do know you have to pay attention to your source, because it is very easy for both powders to become contaminated. I buy Nutrex, it is the highest quality spirulina, and Jarrow chlorella.

I mixed a tablespoon of Nutrex spirulina in some black cherry juice yesterday morning because I knew I’d have to work 12+ hours nonstop. All of my coworkers thought I was coked up because I was nonstop all day busting ass, and wasn’t even tired when I got home, still feeling great mentally and physically after a full workday with no lunch!

While it certainly won’t cure cancer, believe me, it’s not snake oil. It is a “superfood”, one teaspoon of the powder being the equivalent of 5 - 6 services of leafy vegetables.
Essentially, algae is just a super nutrient dense vegetable, and before you all shrug it off as snake oil, just keep in mind what most people would think of jelqing.

Just started taking spiru half an hour before workouts…I now have the energy to do an intense full body workout in just one day, as opposed to breaking them up throughout the week. Great stuff, great source of Vitamin B12 and Beta Carotene.
Spirulina was the reason Montezuma’s runners were able to make the 180 mile run to the coast and back to bring back the freshly caught fish he enjoyed so much.

Chlorella is really good too, but its effects are not noticeable until you have been taking it a month or two, and it is more a general energy boost and sense of well-being rather than an immediate kick like spiru.

I know I’ve probably spread around enough hype for these two ‘supplements’ but I have honestly never felt better in my life since I started taking these in January. There was a mild detox effect when I first started, nasty farts and intense headaches, but that went away after a day or two, and it’s been smooth sailing since then. Imagine when you were a child full of energy, that’s how I feel now, and I’m 30.

Also, there have been many scientific studies done on both spirulina and chlorella, but for some reason they are very hard to find, I wonder why? If anyone wants, PM me and I will e-mail you the pdfs I have managed to find.

One more thing….I wouldn’t bother with the Swanson tablets. I have some, and they are very difficult to swallow and scratch my throat. Not to mention, you’d have to take 8 tablets to equal one teaspoon of the powder! (four grams) Powder is not only more cost effective, but just better.

Edit: spirulina is often confused with Klamath algae (another blue-green algae), perhaps that is where the negative press comes from. Klamath algae is incredibly expensive, and so easily contaminated people get extremely sick and sometimes even die from taking it. I’ve never taken it so I can’t comment, but it costs too much for me, even from Swanson.

Does your dad drink diet drinks? Does he consume any artificial sweeteners in quantity?

I’m curious.

Last night and still now I can’t stop farting, like long winded non-stop, internal organ flying gas is coming out my ass like a diesel locomotive going up a 45 degree grade.

No diet drinks at all ever. He switched to this not sugar shit a while back. He is a heavy coffee drinker too. I read all the shot that caffeine fucks that up, sugar, not sugar substitutes, etc…. There was even a fungus like Candida Free info I read for it too.

Hahahahaha, I’ll bet that is some pungent fumage too huh

It actually doesn’t smell as bad, however it is like my large intestines are the eye of a hurricane and everything outside it will feel the wrath of my elemental air tird cutter.

It’ll pass (no pun intended)

I went the next town over to the local Vitamin Shoppe and buy all my stuff. Only cause the hours are good and the proximity really, plus I can check the website if they have a brand or measurement.

Anyhow, I have the Super Chlorella 1000mg home brand and the Nutrex Hawaiian Pacifica Spirulina powder in a glass bottle of 5oz/141g.

I took it with Grape Juice and it wasn’t that bad at all. However, how do I get the leftover Green Spunk out of the glass? I poured a second hit of grape juice in the glass to wash it off the sides with an angry stirring from the spoon, but there always seems to be some clinging someplace including the spoon.

That ain’t all it clings to, chief.

Do you ever let that carcass sleep?

This is one of the great mysteries of spirulina, awaiting it’s einstein for resolution.

My first attempt to circumvent this problem was to use my mouth as its own cup. I poured the water - or any choice of solvent - in first, leaving enough space for the spirulina, which I added afterward. The desired solution never materialized, however, and I was left with this gucky disgusting substance sticking to the roof of my mouth for a few of the most hellish moments of my life.

The more you eat/drink it the less of a problem the consistency and taste is. Both chlorella and spirulina are completely tasteless to me now, and I just dig and eat the clumps with a spoon after I finish my juice. When I first made the switch from tablets to powder, I could barely get the stuff down.

Both algaes really take well to blending though, if you want to really avoid clumping. The trick is to blend everything first, turn the blender down to a low setting, and put the algae powder in while it’s running to avoid the clumping. Try a pineapple juice, spirulina, frozen blueberry, lecithin granule smoothie. One of my favorites.

Also twat, I just re-stocked my spirulina with Nutrex, as I hear it’s the best brand. It definitely looks different than the other one I had, a bit of a brownish hue.

When you re-stock your chlorella, you might want to consider buying a kilo of of Jarrow’s Yaeyama Chlorella from iherb or luckyvitamin. It is chlorella vulgaris, a more nutritious strain than chlorella pyrenodiosa. It’s 47 or so dollars for a kilo of powder, comes out to about 5 cents a gram, a tad cheaper than what you have from the vitamin shoppe, and higher quality too.

“Spirulina has been proposed by both NASA (CELSS)[20] and the European Space Agency (MELISSA)[21] as one of the primary foods to be cultivated during long-term space missions.”

Taped onto the dashboard of a car at a junkyard, I once found the following: "Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement." The car was crashed.

Primary goal: To have an EQ above average (i.e. streetsmart, compassionate about life and happy) Secondary goal: to make an anagram of my signature denoting how I feel about my gains

1) How much Spirulina a day is a decent intake? (grams powder).

2) I couldn’t find any info on how much EPA/DHA it contains (percent). Anybody have a clue?

1) 3 grams a day for a maintenance dosage is what is generally recommended…but most people, myself included, end up taking much much more once we get into it. I take a teaspoon a day (4 to 5 grams), or a tablespoon when I know I have a long workday ahead and really need the energy. I’ll also eat a tablespoon an hour before working out or sex

2) I have been looking for that info for a while, and haven’t found anything yet. Definitely post if/when I do find that info.
