Well known experts in the field of attention and mood challenges recommend foods that contain concentrations of the amino acids that supply the body and brain with the building blocks necessary to create the neuro-peptides associated with learning and focus. A deficiency of these important trace nutrients not only affects focus and learning, but can also underlie poor mood, listlessness, and a lack of motivation. Algae is also used by professional athletes and horse trainers alike to achieve increased recuperation and a competitive edge. Animal trainers and parents alike, have noticed that children and even animals who eat this food have better attitudes and are easier to train. Scientific studies show increased focus and concentration in children when eating AFA.*

Elements for Life inc. Blue-Green Algae is 100% pure BLUE-GREEN ALGAE (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae -Latin: "invisible water flower"). Blue-Green Algae is one of nature's most nutrient dense foods, harvested wild from one of the most pristine ecosystems on the planet, the spring-fed waters of Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon. It is harvested and dried using state-of-the-art technology to preserve the enzymatic and phyto-nutrient potency of the algae. * Algae are a class by themselves, exhibiting the characteristics of both plant and animal.
Blue-Green Algae contains the broadest array of phyto-nutrients of any known algae, including rare trace elements, biologically active enzymes, amino acids, essential fatty acids, B12, chlorophyll, Phenylethylamine (PEA), glycol-proteins, complex sugars, vitamins and minerals, * Due to the algae's nutritious soft cell wall, these nutrients are readily available to the body.
Elements for Life Blue-Green Algae is the most nutrient dense food on the planet, containing biologically active enzymes, vitamins and minerals and Glyco-proteins. Elements for Life BLUE-GREEN ALGAE is a potent super-food that requires almost no digestive power to simulate. This means when you eat Elements for Life Blue-Green Algae. You get an immediate infusion of energy and catalytic super-nutrients that can transform your mental emotional and physical health! *
Blue-Green Algae are high and amino acids and other brain chemistry compounds by virtue of their unique ability to metabolize nitrogen directly from the air to produce amino acids and other nitrogen compounds.
Our Blue-Green Algae is very high in critical trace elements and super-nutrients without which astounding health is impossible. The high mineral content results when the algae feeds in the nutrient rich waters of Klamath Lake, which sits on a lakebed of volcanic ash sediment 35 feet deep! The chlorophyll in the algae helps detoxify the body and helps maintain a healthy immune system. Double-blind research confirms that the algae stimulates the immune system to remove unhealthy cells more effectively.*
Elements for Life Blue-Green Algae is a wild food harvested fresh from the pristine waters of upper Klamath Lake. It is than micro filtered and processed at low temperature technology to preserve its important constituents.
Algae has been eaten in one form or another for thousands of years. It is packed biologically active enzymes, vitamins, beta-carotene, chlorophyll, essential fatty acids, B-12, minerals, trace elements, growth factors, and neuropeptide precursors.
Algae is a concentrated source of arginine, used by bodybuilders and athletes to build and tone muscle tissue. It also contains all eight essential amino acids plus the "semi-essential" amino acids in a perfect profile required by the human body! This means when you ingest this super-food your body absorbs and metabolizes at a rate of nearly 100%!! In terms of what our body needs to survive and thrive, this is one of those rare foods that a person could probably live on exclusively and experience better health than they currently do ...with practically zero left over metabolic waste!*
Some of the amazing physiological benefits of the Blue-Green Algae come from the unique in types of sugars that it creates such as fucoidins, laminarins, mannans, ribose, galactans, and agars. These are unique types of polysaccharides necessary for biochemical functions including the building repairing and replacing of damaged cell structures.*
Super-Food Food for the Brain and Body
According to Dr. Gabriel Cousens, M.D., author in Body, Mind, Spirit, April 1995. "People taking A.F.A.(Blue-Green Algae) have reported an overall increase in mental alertness, mental stamina, short and long term memory, problem solving, creativity, dream recall, a greater sense of well being and centeredness."*
"The greatest benefit of bringing this nutrient dense wild food into your life is not simply its nutrient concentration, but rather its total synergistic effect on the mind and the nervous system including the pituitary, pineal, and hypothalamus.* Because our brain cells use neuro-peptides to communicate with each other, and Blue-Green Algae contains the basic building blocks and neuropeptide precursors necessary to create these potent brain chemistries, Blue-Green Algae contributes to the brain's ability to process information and achieve a sense of well-being in the user. *
The ability of brain neurons to manufacture and utilize neurotransmitters is limited by the concentration of amino acids in the bloodstream. Some of the amino acids found in BLUE-GREEN ALGAE actually cross the blood-brain barrier in exactly the form they are found in the algae where they are used to build neurotransmitters, which are used by various regions of the brain and body to initiate the secretion of substances (such as hormones) that influence metabolic functions.*
Blue-Green Algae contains about 3% nucleic acids... more than any other food! Nucleic acids are responsible for growth repair and regeneration of the cells weakening to the aging process. Nucleic acids also enhance immunity, protect cells, and are used by the brain to support memory functions and act as stress modulators.*
Most foods contain proteins that require the body to waste energy in order convert the proteins to utilizable form. Elements for life, Blue-Green Algae proteins are in the form of glyco-proteins that can be used by the body directly without using the body's own digestive energy reserves to convert them first. But this reason, even small amounts of Blue-Green Algae can have a powerful effect on a person's health.* The amino acid profile of blue-green algae, is almost exactly the same profile, the human body needs for optimum cell growth, repair and nutrition.*
Chlorophyll, Blood and the Geometry of Life
Wow! Did you know that the chlorophyll molecule found in Blue-Green Algae has something in common with hemoglobin molecule in your blood? They have the same geometry, which is 12 atoms surrounding a central 13th atom. In your blood, the 13th atom at the center is iron. In the chlorophyll found in blue-green algae, the central atom is magnesium. This is a very significant geometry mirrored from the microcosm to the macrocosm.
This 12 around one relationship is related to the 3 dimensional platonic solid known as the "Dodecahedron" ... one of prime inherent geometries present in both natural systems, phenomena and esoteric legends. This central magnesium atom at the center of the chlorophyll is a rare mineral that plays a crucial role in over 300 different enzyme systems and helps control nearly every one of our bodies vital processes!*
BLUE-GREEN ALGAE has one of the highest percentages (3%) of chlorophyll of any food on the planet. When a single magnesium atom is made available to the body within each chlorophyll molecule, the magnesium is especially easy to assimilate.
CHLOROPHYLL CONTENT CHART
33% more chlorophyll than chlorella
60% more than spirulina
100% more than barley grass
500% more than wheatgrass
Blue-Green Algae also contains another amazing super-nutrient nutrient that exhibits the 12 around one geometry. That super-nutrient is vitamin B-12 whose 13th atom at the center of its structure is cobalt which is an extremely rare and potent and element responsible for energy generation, and creating the biological electricity the cells live on. B-12 deficiency results in, muscular weakness and fatigue. For this reason, eating Elements for life, Blue-Green Algae is almost like eating an infusion of pure solar energy that your entire brain and body can feed on directly with no digestion required!*
BLUE-GREEN ALGAE has one of the highest percentages (2-3%) of chlorophyll of any food on the planet. When magnesium is delivered to the body chelated to chlorophyll it is especially easy to assimilate.
