    I recognize the benefit of using spirulina, especially being newly vegetarian/vegan. I am wondering if those who use spirulina here have a good source to recommend? I have browsed Iherb and Amazon and like the Source Naturals brand as it has 5 grams of protein and about 50 servings along with a host of other good vitamins and minerals. However I saw someone commenting that since it is not organic it is no good and also since it is from China and not Hawaii…I have no idea about these things so figure I will ask the seasoned vets.

    Also does everyone here generally encourage virgin coconut oil from tropical traditions with the Gold Label? After I finish my current jar off I want to restock with something high quality…I just want to be able to afford all this crap too but it seems like TropTrad regular expellar pressed oil is neither virgin, nor organic and not even from coconuts! So wanted to get some opinions here. Thanks

    Can’t help with the Spirulina issue, but definitely get yourself some quality, organic extra-virgin coconut oil. Best stuff is from the Philippines.

    Hello, Dave.

    I recognize the benefit of using spirulina, especially being newly vegetarian/vegan. I am wondering if those who use spirulina here have a good source to recommend? I have browsed Iherb and Amazon and like the Source Naturals brand as it has 5 grams of protein and about 50 servings along with a host of other good vitamins and minerals. However I saw someone commenting that since it is not organic it is no good and also since it is from China and not Hawaii…I have no idea about these things so figure I will ask the seasoned vets.

    You’ll probably find that a lot of spirulina is harvested from the South China Sea but manufacturered in other areas.
    A few of the brands harvested from Hawaii are Spirulina Pacifica and Blue Hawaii Lifestyle.

    The brand “EarthRise” from Earthrise Nutritionals LLC is grown in California, and although I’ve used it before, I don’t think it’s actually organic but only referred to as “natural.” Of course I’ve used other brands as well and really couldn’t tell a difference.

    Also does everyone here generally encourage virgin coconut oil from tropical traditions with the Gold Label? After I finish my current jar off I want to restock with something high quality…I just want to be able to afford all this crap too but it seems like TropTrad regular expellar pressed oil is neither virgin, nor organic and not even from coconuts! So wanted to get some opinions here.

    Tropical Traditions is a good dependable brand and one which I often used during my own treatment. “Living Foods Extra Virgin Coconut Oil” made by Garden of Life is another excellent brand which can usually be found in local health food stores as well as vitamin shops.

    Friends of mine who are from China and Taiwan have strictly warned me to never eat food products from China, since a lot of it is adulterated, and there’s very little accountability regarding food purity, which is particularly alarming in this case, in light of China’s rampant pollution of their bodies of water.

    I personally would seek out spirulina sourced from other places.

    Able, can you say how their cheapest brand from Tropical Traditions compares to the gold label? Is the quality that much better that it is worth it for the sake or our health to buy the top shelf gold label product? Would you say that for the money it is worth it to pay half the price of the gold label brand and go for the Living Foods Extra Virgin Coconut Oil” made by Garden of Life? I know I am agonizing over something fairly simple but I have wasted money on enough products that were either not doing the job I bought them for or even doing more harm than good so direction is really helpful. I dont mind spending more for a product that is going to give this therapy and healing the best results. Thanks
