The Benefits Of Blue Green Algae And What It Can Do For You-

One of the most nutrient dense foods on our planet is blue green algae. Being among the first life forms, today algae produce over 70% of all the oxygen in our world and by manufacturing  proteins and sugars, algae provide the nutritional foundation for the planet’s evolving ecosystem. 

  • Algae has one of the most complete and balanced nutritional profiles of any food
  • Assimilation of nutrients becomes more difficult with age. And because of  poor diet, lack of exercise, and an overabundance of environmental toxins most people have developed nutritional deficiencies in magnesium, zinc, calcium, the B Vitamins and Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Blue Green Algae is naturally chelated, which supports maximum absorption and giving it a greater than 90 percent assimilation rate
  • Blue Green Algae provides nutrients in almost the perfect ratio needed by the human body
  • Very little energy required for digestion-Blue green algae is  high in usable protein, which ranges from 50-70%. This is a much higher percentage than any plant or animal protein and makes it easier to digest because of its less complex polypeptide chains. 
  • Blue Green algae is so biologically assimilable that tangible benefits can still be obtained even if a person’s internal absorption system is deficient. 

 

Origins Of Blue Green Algae

It is believed that if it wasn’t for algae, there would be no other life existing on earth. Cyanobacteria is the name given to algae, as they are in a class by themselves exhibiting the characteristics of both plants and animals.

All life is believed to have its origins from algae, so it’s no wonder that micro algae provides the most nutrients gram per gram of any other food on earth. Remarkably complete for any single food group, algae contains a full spectrum of over sixty five vitamins, especially rich in B Vitamins and also containing the highest vegetable source of Vitamin B-12, Beta Carotene, amino acids and a primary source of Essential Fatty Acids .

Edible blue green alga are used today as a nutrient-dense food.

What Is The Best Algae To Eat?

Native Americans have used algae for thousands of years as a staple food source, recognizing the value of including blue green algae in their diet and stored dried algae for year-round use and trade. They called it “invisible living flower of water.”

The Blue Green Algae I personally use is Klamath Blue Green Algae, so I want to introduce you to them, and what goes into the harvesting and processing of their product.

Klamath Blue Green Algae is Wild Harvested at the Peak of it’s Highest Nutrient Levels

What Are The Benefits Of Blue Green Algae?

“Certified Organic” Algae from Pristine Upper Klamath Lake in Southern Oregon, USA

“Klamath Blue Green Algae is a wild, fresh water algae growing in natural pristine abundance in Upper Klamath Lake. The combination of mineral-rich water, clean air, and high intensity sunlight make the unique ecosystem of Upper Klamath Lake the most perfect growth medium for AFA.

Upper Klamath Lake located 4,100 feet above sea level is surrounded by the Cascade Mountains. Much of the water that empties into Upper Klamath Lake comes from 6,176 foot high, and 1936 foot deep Crater Lake, a pristine self-contained lake formed during a volcanic eruption. This lake is fed by abundant snow fall, which flows down to Klamath Lake.

This algae, unlike cultivated algae, is a naturally occurring perennial. Its survival depends on the heartiest strain reproducing itself. It has the uncanny ability to communicate environmental and other conditions to each strand in the bloom.

They dry their algae using a proprietary, low temperature drying method called Bio-Active Dehydration™. Unlike other drying methods of AFA, this method preserves the natural enzymes and most of the algae’s biologically active vital nutrients in a naturally balanced profile.

Klamath Blue Green Algae is thoroughly laboratory tested by reputable independent laboratories to ensure you are getting the safest and highest quality whole food supplement available. A Certificate of Analysis is available on request for all of their algae products.

In the summer, the algae reproduces itself every four days, creating a massive bloom of up to 200 million pounds annually.

When it blooms, and is at it’s peak, the algae is fresh harvested from the lake. Immediately it’s screened to remove debris and excess water. When necessary, the fresh algae is micro-filtered, while still on the harvester, to ensure it’s free of potential contaminants. It’s also checked for microcystin, to make sure it’s at acceptable levels. Next the algae is flash frozen and stored at -40 degrees F until processing.”

Hey Tom

Very informative article!

Blue green Algae definitely looks like a complete source of nutrition. I had no idea about all of the benefits and am always looking for new ways to get my energy levels up. Going to have to give it a try.

Just before I do, I remember reading somewhere that algae could contaminate water in a negative way. Is this something to be concerned about or is that just due to high concentrations?

Thanks for this very informative article on algae, Tom. Blue green algae seems to be a nutritious food packed with protein. I’m trying to eat less meat and my objectives would probably be to eliminate it from my diet.

Would the Klamath blue green algae be a good replacement for meat in terms of iron and protein needs? Thanks!

Thanks for that great explanation on Blue Green Algae. I’ve not had access to this but I do take Spirulina.

While I find it difficult to believe in everything you say here eg: that all life forms originate from algae, I appreciate the information in general.

It’s really amazing that it contains all 65 vitamins… I’m not even sure I was aware there were that many!

I would be very interested in obtaining a product such as this. Do you know if they are here in Australia?

    Hi Marilyn- Thank-you for commenting. As mentioned in my article “One of the most nutrient dense foods on our planet is blue green algae. Being among the first life forms, today algae produce over 70% of all the oxygen in our world and by manufacturing proteins and sugars, algae provide the nutritional foundation for the planet’s evolving ecosystem.”

    Science tells us that it is believed that if it wasn’t for algae, there would be no other life existing on earth, and it may have started in your hometown!

    Here is a quote from http://paleobiology.si.edu/

    “The oldest evidence for life may be 3.5-billion-year-old sedimentary structures from Australia that resemble stromatolites. Stromatolites are created today by living mats of microorganisms (mostly cyanobacteria, or blue-green algae). These primitive organisms trap thin layers of sediment with their sticky filaments and grow upward to get light for photosynthesis. Modern-day examples of stromatolites can be found in waters off Australia, the Bahamas, and Belize.”

Tom,
Beautiful photos and great information.
I am seriously considering trying this product as I have been looking to start taking vitamin supplements again.
My energy level is low and nothing else I’ve tried has seemed to help.
Looks like this might be a good choice.
How long were you taking it before you started to feel the benefits?

    Hi Camille- As you may or may not be aware, assimilation of nutrients becomes more difficult with age. And because of poor diet, lack of exercise, and an overabundance of environmental toxins most people have developed nutritional deficiencies. This can lead to low energy among other things. Supplementing with Blue Green Algae will not only bring back that energy, but will provide nutrients in almost the perfect ratio needed by your body. In some cases you may see almost instant results, however in most cases it may take a few week for your body to get back in balance.

I had no idea that blue green algae had so many health benefits! Thanks for sharing this, and I’m especially glad to hear that the harvested algae is thoroughly checked to make sure there are no contaminants in it.

Aside from the capsules, how would you recommend taking blue green algae?

    Hi Samantha- That is exactly why I am trying to get the word out- To those who are unaware of all the wonderful health benefits of Blue Green Algae. I typically use the capsules, however it also comes in tablets, just a choice.

Hey Tom,

I always thought of algae as food for marine life, and it’s quite true that there are places where it is available in abundance, however I never knew that algae were so rich in nutrients and have such an impact on the ecology. This has been a real eye opener for me. Thanks for sharing this wonderful information.

Hi Tom,
I will surely let you know once I’ve tried it. Out of curiosity, is it also edible in its natural form?

Reply
    Tom

    Hi Josh- I don’t see why not, in a survival situation you should be able to just eat it fresh harvested from the lake.
