Suit yourself: Despite having been around for decades, evidence that spirulina offers any benefits remains basically zero. It's aquatic bacteria that contain chlorophyll. Centrum is reasonably-priced chain-store vitamins. Your physician is probably your best guide on supplements -- or get with an evidence-based holist in your community.
