You’ve likely heard of blue-green algae and the amazing health benefits certain strains, like Spirulina and organic Wild Microalgae® have. This is no trend or fad we are talking about here. As a matter of fact, this ancient superfood, algae, has been used for centuries with the earliest archaeological evidence of the consumption of algae dating back to 2,500 B.C. This isn’t the “next big thing” or new health trend, this is much more than that and has been vetted over centuries.
Organic Wild Microalgae…
…Is Loaded with Antioxidants
Antioxidants protect the body from harmful molecules called free radicals. These little worker bees quench free radicals to avoid damage to our body’s cells and tissue. Organic Wild Microalgae actually contains the antioxidants Phycococyanin, Chlorophyll, Beta-Carotene, Superoxide dismutase, and Glutathione. All of these mighty antioxidants equate to about six times more antioxidants than blueberries.
…Is Packed with Protein
Nutritionists tell us that an adult female should consume around 46 grams of protein a day while a male should consume about 56 grams of protein a day. There are a variety of ways to get your protein in each day including poultry, beef, beans, fish, nuts and so on.
Organic Wild Microalgae, also known as Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) is an excellent source of protein providing 55-65 grams of protein per 100 grams. For comparison purposes, beef provides about 26 grams of protein per 100 grams of beef. This means that AFA contains twice as much protein as beef.
…Has More Calcium than Milk
We have all seen the “milk does the body good” commercials that highlight the importance of providing the body with calcium, the compound found in the body that helps to maintain healthy bones.
This superfood algae, AFA, actually contains more calcium than milk, making it an excellent source of calcium, especially for those who do not consume dairy!
…Is a Near Perfect Food
Amino acids are the functional blocks of proteins. There are 20 essential amino acids, and AFA contains them all. Each amino acid offers a variety of health benefits, but all together provide fuel and vital energy, build and maintain neuropeptides and help bio-modulate emotions and mood.
…Is Rich in Chlorophyll
Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that is essential for the process of photosynthesis, whereby radiant energy from the sun is converted into chemical energy for the life processes of the plant. Chlorophyll is also an excellent source of antioxidants and has many beneficial nutritional properties. Wild Microalgae possesses an impressively high content of chlorophyll.
We love this amazing superfood so much that we put it in every single product we produce!
