How to Take Algae
“To me, algae is something you rotate in and out for cleansing purposes, but don’t use all the time,” advises Kravich. She advocates varying the types of algaes following a three-months-on, one-month-off schedule: a month of spirulina, a month of chlorella, a month of red algae, a month off, and then repeat the cycle. That way you get the benefits of the various algaes and your body doesn’t get accustomed to any one algae regimen.
