What is This Superfood Blue Green Algae
One of the most nutrient rich foods available on our planet, Blue Green Algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae meaning invisible water flower) is a deeply nourishing superfood, powerpacked with protein in a very high bioavailable form that is easily absorbed in our bodies (80% as compared to 20% of meat protein). It is also one of the world’s most concentrated source of chlorophyll, an extremely valuable phytonutrient.
Algae are a class by themselves and exhibit the characteristics of both plants and animals. They have been consumed in one form or another for thousands of years. Blue-Green Algae have the broadest range of phytonutrients 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 which can be easily absorbed in our body due to its soft cell wall.
The chlorophyll in the algae helps detoxify the body and maintain a healthy immune system. Blue Green Algae helps to remove heavy metals and other environmental pollutants from our bodies. It also contains all eight essential amino acids plus the "semi-essential" amino acids in such a manner that the human body absorbs and metabolizes this super-food at nearly 100% rate! Even more physiological benefits of the Blue-Green Algae come from the different types of sugars that it creates. These are unique types of polysaccharides necessary for biochemical functions including the building, repairing and replacing of damaged cell structures.
Extensive research has shown that people taking Blue-Green Algae have reported an overall increase in mental alertness, mental stamina, short and long term memory, problem solving, creativity, dream recall and a greater sense of well being. The greatest benefit of this food is not only its nutrient constitution, but its total synergistic effect on the mind and the nervous system including the pituitary, pineal, and hypothalamus. Because our brain cells use neuropeptides to communicate with each other, and Blue-Green Algae contains the basic building blocks and neuropeptide precursors necessary to create these potent brain chemistries, it contributes to the brain's ability to process information and to achieve a feeling of well-being. It also contains about 3% nucleic acids... more than any other food! Nucleic acids are responsible for growth, repair and regeneration of cells and also enhance immunity.
The good news about Blue-Green Algae does not end here. It is also full of vitamins, especially rich in B vitamins and the richest vegetable source of both B-12 and beta-carotene. According to the 1991 critical review in "Food and Science and Nutrition" Gram for Gram Blue-Green Algae has 40 times the beta-carotene of carrots!
