What Exactly is Hydrilla Verticillata?

Lotus Superfoods Logo

Hydrilla Verticillata is a freshwater rooted algae that grows wild throughout temperate regions around the world.  Although it is technically an algae, it very much resembles a plant.  Hydrilla is considered a Green Superfood due to the exceptionally high levels of essential nutrients (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, etc.) it contains.

What does Hydrilla taste like?

Lotus Superfoods Hydrilla powder has a refreshing, mild taste similar to highly mineralized water.  If put into a smoothie, the taste is virtually unnoticeable.  If you are sensitive to the taste of herbs or greens in general, it is recommended that Hydrilla be mixed with a flavored beverage such as fruit juice to help mask any taste.  Most people have no problem whatsoever with the taste

How Much Should I Take?

If you are not used to taking green powder superfood supplements, we recommend starting with 1/2 teaspoon per day and working up from there by approximately 1/4 teaspoon every few days to a maximum of 1 tablespoon per day.  Hydrilla can be mildly cleansing and to prevent any initial discomfort, it is best to give you body a few days to adjust.

If you are experienced with green superfoods, we still recommend starting off with a smaller dose and working up, albeit at a more dramatic rate.

Is Your Hydrilla Organic?

Lotus Superfoods Hydrilla Verticillata is ‘Wildcrafted’, which is one step beyond organic farmingWildrcafted means that the Hydrilla grows in the wild– just as nature intended– in soils that have been unaltered by the hands of humans.  These untouched soils are far healthier and more nutrient dense than even the best organic farms.  While organic growing methods are important and we always recommend buying organic products when wildcrafting is not available, the fact is that untouched, pristine, naturally occurring soils are unparalleled in health and quality and are by far the best way to grow and harvest foods and herbs for maximum potency and quality.
