A question about spirulina, before I rush out and buy some: people mention consuming "grams" of spirulina per day. Does it usually come in tablet or capsule form, or is it a powder? About how many tablets make up one gram? (I live in Japan, and only Japanese brands seem to be available here, and even then not widely so.)
It's available in all of the above forms, but apparently the powder form tastes awful. I take mostly tablets, and some of my other capsule vitamins have spirulina in them as well.
Most of the tablets I've seen are 500mg, so two of them make 1 gram.
There was a link on the other post to a UK based online health food store that had great prices on high quality spirulina. Maybe it would be a good idea to get some of that now so it will arrive by the time you start.
