KLAMATH BLUE-GREEN ALGAE (Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae) has gained attention in recent years as the most nutrient-dense and perfectly balanced whole food on the planet; making it one of the most vital, foundational superfoods in the health food market today. Often called "wild blue-green", it grows wild and uncultivated in the pure, pristine waters of Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon in an extraordinary and perfect natural environment that is impossible to duplicate on algae farms.
Ounce for ounce, WILD BLUE-GREEN ALGAE is one of the richest sources of protein (up to 70%), much of it glycoprotein, already converted and ready for absorption with 80% protein digestibility. It is considered a 'complete protein,' containing all eight essential amino acids and is rich in B vitamins, being the highest plant source of B-12, Beta Carotene, and non-toxic Vitamin A; also rich in vitamins C, E, K, Inosital, Choline, and Biotin. The soft glucose cell wall makes it highly assimilable and superior in digestibility and absorption with a perfect synthesis of Proteins, Enzymes, Complex Carbohydrates, and Lipids, (Essential Fatty Acids: Omega 3, Omega 6, EPA and GLA), and Nucleic Acids, RNA/DNA. The colloidal mineral sediment of Upper Klamath Lake makes blue-green algae extremely rich in a full-spectrum of minerals occurring in their natural chelated form, organically bound, and highly bio-available.
Klamath Blue-Green is harvested in its natural state from the fall bloom in the middle of the deepest part of Upper Klamath Lake where the greatest purity of blue-green is found. Immediately frozen after harvest, all vital nutrients remain intact &biologically active. Lastly, it is quickly dried using a proprietary low temperature Bioactive Dehydration process. Klamath Blue Green Algae™ is Certified Organic, ensuring the highest purity and consistent quality since 1989.
SPIRULINA, a blue-green cyanobacteria micro-algae superfood that dates back over 3 billion years, is the most well known of these algaes. A potent nutrient-dense whole food, spirulina is over 60% protein, and is a complete protein, supplying all eight essential amino acids. It is low in fat, but does contain vital essential fatty acids, including very high amounts of Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA).
Most of the important vitamins we need are found in Spirulina including the entire B-complex range, Vitamin E, and beta-carotene, particularly rich in vitamin B-12, as is Klamath Blue Green Algae providing an excellent source of B12 for vegetarians. Spirulina is also rich in minerals, (including iron, calcium, zinc, potassium, magnesium, selenium, phosphorus, and trace minerals), and also enzymes, chlorophyll, DNA, RNA, sulfolipids, and glycolipids.
What makes our Spirulina stand out from other Spirulinas is that it is 100% Certified Organic. The USDA NOP still allows for the use of 20% Chilean Nitrate. We strive to meet the global demand for a truly Organic Spirulina so we use only Certified Organic Nitrogen Source without the use of any Chilean Nitrate. Our Spirulina is the only Spirulina that is USP Verified, which means it has received US Pharmacopeia authorization to carry that verification mark. It is also Certified Organic by Institute of Markokologie (IMO), Switzerland as per USDA NOP. In addition, our Spirulina has a unique advantage of being grown in an algal facility that is Certified HACCP. It is also Certified Kosher.
SUPER CHLORELLA - Heterotrophically Grown in the purest of controlled environments. With perfect growing conditions of sunlight, temperature, water and air this Super Soft-Celled micro-algae relaxes into its own perfect environment and therefore does not need to develop a thick-celled barrier in order to protect itself from combative elements. Spinning and pressure-cracking a thick-cell wall can be unnatural and a bit traumatizing to the cell itself. We are proud to include this outstanding high quality grade Chlorella into our POWER3. Super Chlorella is highly digestible and assimilable. According to many experts, this highly concentrated single-cell superfood is the world's highest source of chlorophyll, well-known as a blood builder and stimulator of red cell formation.
