Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Use and Store Emerald Energy?
Start with a 1/2 teaspoon of Emerald Energy® stirred vigorously into a glass of your favorite beverage. Do not mix with hot liquids as this can destroy the natural enzyme value. Gradually increase serving to find the amount that’s right for you, up to 3 teaspoons, three times a day. Ideally drink 20 to 30 minutes before eating. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Always consult your health practitioner before using. Store in a cool, dry place.
Thoughts on Emerald Energy’s® Serving Size
For our formulas in powder form, if you have not used a product like this before, start with 1/2 teaspoon of Emerald Energy® stirred vigorously into a 6 to 8 ounce glass of your favorite beverage (such as orange juice, vegetable juice, or rice milk). Do not mix Emerald Energy® with hot liquids as this can destroy the natural enzyme value. Drink Emerald Energy® 20 to 30 minutes before eating breakfast (after you’ve been “fasting” through the night while sleeping). Within a week or so, you can gradually increase by 1/2 teaspoon increments – up to 2 to 3 teaspoons – one or two times daily. Proceed slowly to find the amount of Emerald Energy® that’s right for you. It’s also important to drink plenty of additional fluids throughout the day to maximize Emerald Energy’s® effect.
For our formula in capsules, the suggestion is to start with 2 capsules and follow the same instructions as above.
How Long Does a Bottle of Emerald Energy® Last?
We offer Emerald Energy® as a powder in 100g bottles as well as in 1lb containers. How long a bottle lasts depends on the serving size and how many times a day you’re using Emerald Energy®. For example, if you use a teaspoon every day, a 100g bottle will last you nearly two months. Numbers of servings in both sized containers are as follows:
100g Bottle: 50 1 teaspoon servings (2 grams) or 33 1 1/2 teaspoon servings (3 grams)
1lb Container: 227 1 teaspoon servings (2 grams) or 151 1 1/2 teaspoon servings (3 grams).
How to Store Emerald Energy®?
It’s best to store Emerald Energy® in a cool, dry place. For optimum freshness, store Emerald Energy® in the freezer. Ideally, enjoy Emerald Energy® within six months of opening.
Taking Emerald Energy® Late in the Day
Since many people report an energy boost with Emerald Energy®, it is best to avoid taking it late in the day or before bedtime.
Do you follow Good Manufacturing Processes (GMPs)?
Yes, absolutely. Every Emerald Energy® formula is blended in a NSF certified facility, which means there a system of processes, procedures, and documentation in place to assure that our formulas have the identity, strength, composition, quality, and purity as promised.

Is Your Spirulina Organic?
Yes. But it’s not “Certified Organic” because that’s a designation that was developed more for agriculture (things grown in soil) and not aquaculture (things grown in water). Spirulina that is “Certified Organic” is actually terrible and should be avoided (it mostly comes from India or China and is usually contaminated with bacteria and heavy metals).

Pregnant, Nursing, or Pre-menstrual Women or People on Prescription Medications
Pregnant or nursing women or people taking prescription medications should always check with their qualified health practitioner before using Emerald Energy®. Pre-menstrual women should not take Emerald Energy® Femme.
Emerald Energy® is an all-natural product and, as such, there can occasionally be variations in color. The first ingredient in all our formulas – spirulina – can vary in color due to seasonal fluctuations in growing conditions. These color variations in no way affect the nutrient or enzymatic content of Emerald Energy®.
People with a metabolic condition called phenylketonuria (PKU) should avoid taking Emerald Energy®. People with this rare condition cannot metabolize the amino acid phenylalanine. Spirulina is rich in all amino acids, including phenylalanine.
