A serving ranges from 1 teaspoon (1/4 ounce) per day, and up. Most people begin at 1 tablespoon per day (1/2 ounce) and
increase over time to 2 or 3 tablespoons once per day. You may take more, but we find unless you're doing a cleanse, taking
more than 2 or 3 tablespoons once a day may produce minor cleanse reactions, such as skin breakouts or such, since E3 Live
is detoxifying. We suggest drinking a few ounces of pure water after each use.
How Long Does A Bottle Last?
Using 2 tablespoons per day, we find at Fresh And Alive that one 16 fluid ounce bottle will last about 24 days. Two
tablespoons equals one fluid ounce, so logically a bottle should therefore last 16 days, but in reality we find it lasts 24.
And yes, we did make sure we used a proper measuring tablespoon. In defrosted liquid state, E3Live™ must be kept cold and
refrigerated at all times to maintain its freshness. Shelf-life thawed in refrigerator is about 7 days. Frozen E3 Live
will last for months.
How Does It Taste?
Although this is an algae, it is not slimy when consumed, but it does have a mild seaweed taste to it when eaten full strength.
However, if you dilute it in fresh raw juice or water flavored with Stevia as detailed below, the taste is neutralized to the
point that even most kids will drink it.
Fresh And Alive's Recommended Use
We don't recommend the manufacturer's instructions to partially thaw a week's worth of E3 Live and refreeze the remainder each week,
since that diminishes the nutritional value and taste, and it's clumsy. Instead, we recommend thawing the bottle of E3 Live once in the
fridge or at room temperature just until the E3 Live is liquid and still cold. Shake well to mix thoroughly, then dispense one- to
three-tablespoon portions into either ice cube trays, or
compostable two-ounce condiment cups with lids.
Condiment cups have the advantage of being transportable. With ice cube tray portions, once frozen, you can pop them into a container
(a plastic zip-lock bag works well) and keep them in your freezer, ready to use.
To use, simply place one portion into about eight ounces of water or juice. You can add other superfoods as well, such as marine phytoplankton,
raw superfood powders, etc. If using water, you can sweeten the mixture with a flavored
stevia such as SweetLeaf stevias. Stevia is an herbal sweetener
that does not feed yeasts such as candida albicans, molds, fungi, parasites, pathogenic bacteria, and viruses found in most humans today.
Away From Home
One option for taking E3 Live with you to places that don't have refrigeration is the
E3Live Quick Shake Cooler Cup.
