I drink my spirulina every morning with some orange or grapefruit juice. I swear I have more energy (not just short buzz) than I do from coffee. I keep saying I`m gonna stop drinking coffee and just have spirulina and water or tea in the am. Maybe tomorrow is the day to start. I started drinking it for the acid netrualizing effects, since it is so alkaline. Spirulina should be a must for everybody. I get the large NOW foods jug.
