Hawaiian Spirulina


Spirulina gives me energy. When I don’t take spirulina, especially on days when I’m rushing and not eating well, I notice a difference in how I feel – at the end of the day I have no energy. I’m not a coffee person so I do feel that when I take spirulina it does give me more energy through the day and just makes me feel better about myself.” –  Mariane Uehara from Honolulu, Hawaii

“My name is Jamie Day, and I have been taking Spirulina and BioAstin since 2011. They support my health, keeps my immune system super strong, and provides a constant source of energy. I share these two products with anyone. I recommend it with all my heart.”

“Nutrex Hawaii spirulina powder is part of my daily health and wellness routine. The powder mixes quickly and completely in my herbal tea gives me the energy I need to get moving. I highly recommend Nutrex Hawaii spirulina over any other brand that I’ve tried. The flavor is mild and a small dose goes a long way.” – Carol Carlson

Add 1-2 Scoops Collagen Hydrolysate


I have a VitaMix Blender. It is a powerful blender that easily mixes carrots, celery, seeds and nuts. If your blender can’t handle these veggies, adjust the recipe using what you can. You can make a triple serving in a big blender, portion it out and freeze for another day.
