Spirulina Drink and Powder

Are Spirulina Tablets as Good as Powder?

Spirulina an ayurvedic medicine was first found in abundance at Lake Texcoco by French researchers in the 1960s. It is a Blue-Green Algae that is consumed either in powder form, tablet form, or as a supplement. I personally believe in ayurvedic medicines rather than allopathy medicines. Ayurvedic stems from the ancient Vedic culture. In Sanskrit Ayurveda means “the science of life”. Yes, both powder and tablets have the same working procedure. When both are compared then the tablet is more effective than powder.
