Here you have 200 tablets per bottle of one amazingly nutritious superfood.
If only Popeye had known there is a natural food source that has 58 times the iron of raw spinach and 28 times that of raw beef liver. This food was a significant part of the Aztec and Mayan diets. It contains more beta-carotene than any other whole food and is very high in chlorophyll.
This amazing food is the richest source of natural antioxidants of any whole food, containing every natural known antioxidant. NASA plans to grow this food on the space station, as it is one of the most efficient, oxygen generating foods in existence. It contains all the B vitamins, and is an extraordinary “transport” of other vitamins, allowing your body to actually benefit from any other good food or vitamins you may be taking.
What is it?
It is a blue-green algae that produces all its nutrients by harvesting sunlight. It is called Spirulina.
Now you’re wondering, “How do you eat algae?” Well, sort of like angel hair pasta: with a fork and a large spoon... just kidding!
It comes in a dried powdered form that can be mixed with juice, but it tastes gross! However, it also comes in tablets, easily swallowed, and without taste.
My first two pregnancies and births were quite hard and my health was poor. I tried SO many vitamins, prenatals, and herbal teas to keep myself up and functioning normally. I’m sure most of them helped, but I did not feel or see any difference until I discovered the SuperMom tabs during my third pregnancy.
Hallelujah! What a change! Within an hour I could feel the difference in my energy levels. For the first few days I detoxed big time, as the Spirulina and vitamins began to flush my body of old toxins; then my journey back to health began.
My third pregnancy and birth was so incredibly different than the first two. No water retention, no extra weight gain or bad circulation, and no fatigue. I was amazed. My hair grew thick and shiny (and never fell out after the birth) and my nails become hard for the first time in my life. Even my vision improved.
I was so changed my husband began to take the SuperMom tablets as well (since there is nothing exclusively female about the ingredients) and he noticed a marked difference in his own energy levels. Since then, I’ve recommended the SuperMom tabs to friends and family members, with the same consistent response, “this is amazing!”
I found several places on the internet that sell Spirulina products, but have not personally tried them. Spirulina.com has info on each step of the process of growing, harvesting, drying, and preserving the algae. Martha Sánchez of the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá has co-authored a very detailed review of Spirulina. The ubiquitous Wikipedia also has an informative article.
Being a “Super Mom” really starts in your spirit, and your attitude. I’ve known wonderful mothers with bodies completely destroyed by polio, or severely handicapping accidents. But these women were exceptional because they did not succumb to their physical handicaps; instead, they were continually looking for diet, health, and exercise to help them be as strong as possible. They found their own secrets to conquering Motherhood; Spirulina is one of mine.
Detox symptoms are: Sticky teeth, bad breath, headache, fatigue, achy muscles, hot bowel movements, bad smelling urine, pimples, profuse and stinky sweat. None of these symptoms lasted longer than a couple of days, and I was glad to know the toxins were leaving my body! A couple of Epsom salt baths a day, and several glasses of water with lemon helps to speed up the detox process, and clean you out.
Going through the detox symptoms is not "unnatural". Your body is always detoxing, but Spirulina speeds up and facilitates the process. If you think your body is more toxic than the average person, try starting the Supermom / Spirulina regimen slowly, and pay attention to how you feel. I don't believe detoxing could hurt anyone, no matter your age, or circumstances.
The great benefit of getting rid of toxins while pregnant, is that it helps decrease water retention. I eliminated so much retained water during the first couple days of taking Supermom - and lost several "toxic" pounds. I have to believe this could only be good for my baby.

Blue-green micro algae, and its cousins Spirulina and Chlorella, grow on inland waters throughout the world – visible as greenish scum on still lakes and ponds. The Aztecs of Mexico ate it as a staple food, dried and spread on tortillas. Africans of the Sahara region also use dried spirulina with grains and vegetables.
These algae are high in protein, carotenoids and minerals. Beware, however, of claims that they can provide vitamin B12 in vegetarian diets. Nevertheless, the high mineral and protein content of the various algae make them an excellent superfood, a good supplement to the diet and a useful product for the treatment of a variety of health problems.
Of the three main types of algae, spirulina is said to be the easiest to digest and absorb, because its cell walls are composed of mucopolysaccharides rather than indigestible cellulose. Chlorella needs special processing to improve digestibility of a tough outer cell wall, but it is valued for its ability to bind with heavy metals and carry them out of the body.

I'm 26 weeks pregnant and have been suffering from tiredness and daytime sleepiness for the past month or so. I have needed naps every day even after sleeping for 8-10 hours through the night. Sometimes, I'd wake up at 8am and need a nap as early as 10am. After just 1 dose of Bee Strong, I needn't a nap the next day or any other day since. I've only taken 1 capsule a day, as that seems to be enough.
I alternate with 6 capsules of Spirulina the next day. I taken them usually in the morning after breakfast. I have a full-time job and plan to work until I'm in labor. These 2 supplements will make that much more manageable. I also feel energetic enough to make it through the day with the same stamina I've always enjoyed before my pregnancy. It has been a blessing. Thanks so much for these products!

The nutritional content and balance of this product is awesome. The older I get I am looking for supplements that are nutrient dense and easy to take. Spirulina tablets meet both of these standards!

I've tried to convince my family time and time again about the benefits of spirulina. BUT no one wanted to try it because of the taste even if they knew how great it is. Fortunately it is available in small pills and my family now loves it. We take it everyday without any fuzz whatsoever during meal times and it helps with our digestion. Love this product so far.
