The reason I love Spiral Spring is because they provide a very high quality product, and they have been around for 15 years, so you know they are doing things right! They sent me a couple of their products to test out, and I was really impressed. I used the regular spirulina to make a peach green smoothie, and their chocolate powder to make a chocolate almond banana smoothie.
