While extra caution should be taken as a step before buying spirulina anywhere, be sure that the kind or finished product you are buying is not that type grown in laboratories. These are said to be not considered organic. Also be vigilant in knowing the source of your spirulina simply because the algae is said to have been found out to be prone to contamination from toxic substances called microcystins. Buy only a brand that is trusted to avoid it. This will hep you stay away also from heavy metals which can be absorbed from the water where it is grown.
