Blue green algae from the Upper Klamath lakes is one the most nutrient rich superfoods known to man. Health Leads superior naturally grown blue green algae is a freshwater species of cyanobacteria. Wild and organic, our high quality AFA (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae) is carefully harvested during June through to November from the high, cool, pristine lakes in Klamath Falls, Oregon USA. Our blue green algae is gently harvested from the surface water, carefully filtered and contained in rapidly cooled water tanks, which helps preserve natural bio-active compounds. Then we use one of the best drying methods available. This special computer controlled drying method uses heat transfer technology exposing the blue green algae to heat for only a brief moment, delivering a dried product as close to its natural state as possible. It is so good we have stopped supplying Chlorella and Spirulina and replaced it with blue green algae powder supplement.
For thousands of years algae has been eaten as a nutritious food. It is packed full of easily digestible protein, 55-70% compared to beef, chicken and fish, which contain only 25%. It is composed of all eight essential amino acids and semi essential amino acids. Most significantly, the Aphanizomenon flos-aquae amino acid profile is almost the exact equivalent of the requirements needed by the human body. It is a great source of chlorophyll which can help our body’s cell regeneration, blood purification and general detoxification. It contains minerals, trace minerals, fatty acids, nucleic acids, vitamins, enzymes, peptides, lipids and carbohydrates.
