Microscopic Miracles ... The Amazing Power of Algae!
"The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like and do what you'd rather not!" --Mark Twain
Super Algae contains the following 3 INGRIDENTS:
1- Klamath Lake blue-green algae
Klamath Lake in Oregon is the exclusive source of Klamath Lake blue-green algae. This is the most nutrient dense food on the planet, containing glyco-proteins, vitamins, minerals, simple carbohydrates, lipids and biologically active enzymes." This type of algae has a soft nutritious cell wall that causes these nutrients to be readily available to the body. "As the body uses only a small amount of energy to convert this superfood into fuel, consuming Klamath Blue Green Algae is efficient and energizing. This type of algae reproduces itself and is considered a "naturally occurring perennial."
Micro-algae provides the simplest form of balanced, whole food nutrients. This allows rapid absorption of vital nutrients with 95% assimibility, at almost no cost to the body's digestive energy supplies. Most of the nutrients in Blue Green Algae are active and in forms that are directly useable by the body. It can be defined as APHANIZOMENON (genus) and FLOS-AQUAE (species) which in Greek means "invisible living flower of water."
Dr. Gabriel Cousens M.D., said in the April 1995 edition of Body, Mind, Spirit Magazine, ''The greatest value of Blue Green Algae is not only its nutrient concentration, but its effect on the nervous system, specifically the pituitary gland, pineal and hypothalamus. 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, a greater sense of well being and centeredness.
The ADD/ADHD Blue-Green Algae Connection
In an excerpt from the book Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: A Nutritional Approach written by Karl Abrams, it is written that "While eliminating environmental toxins as much as possible, blue-green algae helps to reactivate every cell of the body." It is interesting to note that the Blue-green algae helps eliminate toxins from the body but helps the body absorb nutrients." In a study conducted by the University of Central America in 1995 on ADD children taking about one gram per day, "marked improvement was noted in class participation and overall ability to focus on given tasks."
2 - Chlorella
Chlorella is a freshwater green algae noted for its chlorophyll content. It is used in the detoxification of heavy metals such as cadmium, uranium and lead. Studies in Japan have shown that chlorella increases the excretion of cadmium from victims of cadmium poisoning. Chlorella contains many nutrients especially amino acids which support mental and physical energy and detoxification.
Two Nobel prizes have been awarded relate to chlorella research. In 1931, German Biochemist Otto Heinrich Warburg received it in Physiology or Medicine for his study of photosynthesis in chlorella. In 1961 Melvin Calvin of the University of California received the prize in chemistry for his research on the pathways of carbon dioxide assimilation in plants using chlorella.
Dr. Bernard Jensen has written some fabulous books on this topic as well. He was a true believer in the health benefits of chlorella.
3 - Spirulina
Spirulina is a blue-green algae that grows in warm, alkaline fresh waters around the world. It is a rich source of nutrients, containing up to 70% protein, B-Complex vitamins, phycocyanin, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, vitamin E and numerous minerals. Spirulina contains more beta-carotene than carrots." It naturally contains protein representing all eight essential amino acids, as well as chelated minerals, natural plant sugars, trace minerals and enzymes. Spirulina is easily assimilated by the body. It provides naturally occurring chlorophyll. Spirulina can be used as a pre-meal supplement. It is often added to food to increase its nutritional value. It is one of the few plant sources of vitamin B12.
Spirulina is an amazing source of nutrients and it may possess antiviral and anticancer effects. It has been used in Russia to treat victims, especially children, of the nuclear disaster at Chemobyl In these children where the bone marrow had been damaged from radiation exposure, spirulina seemed to boost the immune system.
There is a great deal of research that discusses that spirulina can be used to enhance the immune system.
Studies suggest that Spirulina increases production of antibodies, cytokines (infection fighting proteins) and other cells that improve immunity and help ward off infection and chronic illnesses such as cancer.
There is some initial research that shows that spirulina may help protect against liver damage and chirrosis (liver failure) in those with chronic hepatitis.
