View Full Version : How much spirulina?

I bought some veg. capsules today to fill with my spirulina powder, but how much spirulina is recommended each day? I believe the capsules are 00 size. I'm trying to up my energy so I don't feel so drained at the end of the day.
I put the Spirulina in my morning smoothie. The dosage is a tablespoon per my naturopath who is also a raw foodist.

I have a teaspoon in my morning smoothie, but want to increase that soon, I've only been taking it 2 weeks now, effects are good :)
I have a spirulina question too, but hubby read in a book recently that raw spirulina is not good for you. (It was in a book about autoimmune disorders, but was a general comment - not directed at just those with an auto-immune disfuntion).
I find that hard to believe, but I am sure it means in large quantities. Does anyone have info on this? I have only heard good things about it.

Thanks for the replies! I guess that 5 capsules would be good? My blender is broken right now so I can't make smoothies! :( And I can't think of any other (appetizing) way to take spirulina.
Ashabean-- I have heard nothing but good about spirulina, but you know how it is these days. They'll find something bad about eveything..even water!
