NOW's Mission
The NOW mission is - To provide value in products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives. NOW Foods is an award-winning and highly respected manufacturer of vitamins, minerals, dietary supplements and natural foods.

In 1948, with the natural food and supplement industry in its infancy, entrepreneur Paul Richard paid $900 for the purchase of Fearn Soya Foods—a Chicago based manufacturer of grain and legume-based products. This began a six-decade legacy of providing health-seeking consumers with high-quality, affordable nutrition products.

History of NOW
In 1968, NOW Foods was founded under the belief that good health was not a luxury available only to the wealthy. For the past forty years, NOW has made it their life's work to offer health food and nutritional supplements of the highest quality, at prices that are fair and affordable to all those who seek them. Today, NOW Foods is one of the top-selling brands in health foods stores, an award-winning manufacturer, a respected advocate of the natural product industry, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while NOW has grown considerably over the past four decades, one thing has never changed – NOW's commitment to providing products and services that empower people to lead healthier lives.

I have been taking spirulina for several years, and I know that the source is very important for such products. I looked at the packaging to try to find out where it is grown, and it doesn't say. I also looked up the Now Foods website, and they do not specify a source either. On Lucky's site it says grown in Hawaii, but following more in depth research it appears that this product may in fact be grown in India, by Parry Nutraceuticals. It is possible that this is an excellent product, but I would prefer to see much more transparency in the labeling, and it am considering returning it if I can because of this. I want to be assured that I am not getting a product from China, which I would not consider safe for consumption.

Good product. Taste good for algae. I am generally healthy, so I see no results I can put my finger on. I'm assuming that this is part of a regimen that's keeping me healthy.

I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!

My husband, my dog and I use a tablespoon of Now Spirulina per 4-5 ounces of yogurt in the morning for a light breakfast. We are healthy as can be. Our little dog begs for it! The taste gets a little getting used to but knowing how good it is for you helps its palatability.

I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT!
