MY SPIRULINA HAS A WEIRD SMELL. IS THAT NORMAL?
California Spirulina is still alive, it is "breathing" in the jar. That means that sometimes (when you leave to lid closed for several days) a sulfur smell builds up in the jar and is released when you open it. Easy test to know if it is still good to eat? Leave the jar open for 30 seconds. Still smells strongly like rotten? Toss it.

You can freeze fresh California Spirulina at home to extend the shelf life. Frozen Spirulina stays good for about 7 months.

HOW MUCH SHOULD I EAT?
We recommend two or three table spoons a day of fresh California Spirulina, but there is no harm in eating more.

 California Spirulina Benefits for Skin: Superfood or Super Skin Care?

Benefits for skin conditions
Helps to diminish the appearance of acne, psoriasis, eczema, or tightening of the skin.

However, “Spirulina does possess antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, which could potentially help with conditions like acne and eczema.

Spirulina for acne
A 2020 study suggests that applying a cream containing spirulina to the skin could be an alternative option for acne treatment due to its high antioxidant and antimicrobial effects. Spirulina might be a better option than local antibiotic therapy due to fewer side effects and no antibiotic resistance.

Spirulina for psoriasis
A 2020 study showed that spirulina helped to reduce the presence of psoriasis in mice. The study suggests that spirulina could potentially be developed as a natural pharmaceutical for psoriasis treatment.

Spirulina for eczema
A 2020 study suggests that an ointment containing spirulina may help improve eczema symptoms when applied topically two times per day for 3 weeks.
