Klamath Lake blue-green algae is the most nutrient dense food known to man, and the highest vegetable source of vitamin B12. It is a purely natural plant food, which goes through minimal processing to reach us in edible form. It has formed part of my staple diet for well over a decade now, and it provides me with improved energy levels, greater powers of concentration, an increased sense of calm, less need for sleep, and stronger and healthier hair and nails. In short, I find it the perfect supplement to a vegan diet, although I would stress that it is not merely a supplement, but a food in its own right.
Incredibly, algae was the initial life form on earth, and blue-green algae dates back over four billion years. There is evidence to show that algae was one of man's first foods: races such as the Aztecs and Incas harvested and ate raw algae. Tribes in Africa still depend on it for their sustenance, and it has been used in Chinese medicine throughout the centuries. Klamath Lake blue-green algae is currently one of the few wild, uncultivated strains of algae growing in the world. When we eat algae, we are connecting with a profound and ancient energy. Richard France, a macrobiotic counselor, states, "It is not inconceivable that on subtle vibrational levels, unique genetic memories and messages of harmony and peace are stored in algae, which have grown undisturbed for years in a pristine environment. This information may be passed to us at a cellular level, encouraging harmony among our own cellular family".
Blue-green algae is harvested from the Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon, U.S.A. The Klamath Lake basin acts as a 'nutrient trap' for the surrounding 4,000 square miles of secluded wilderness in the Cascade Mountains. Seventeen rivers and streams feed the lake with a rich supply of minerals, volcanic silt and many other nutrients. So pure are their waters that the locals refer to them as 'The Rivers of Light'. To get the maximum benefits from algae it is vital that it is does not reach extreme temperatures during processing; heating or freezing will destroy it. Look for algae which has been flash dried, as this leaves the cells of the algae intact and retains its bioactivity. Chlorella and Spirulina, the two other algae available commercially, are both excellent nutritional sources, although neither matches Klamath Lake blue-green algae.
Blue-green algae is truly a superfood. Not only does it contain a high density of vitamins and minerals, as well as many other health -giving properties, it has an assimilation rate of over 90%, which means that all these nutrients are readily absorbed and used by the body. With many supplements formulated in laboratories, the nutrients are not in a form that can be utilised by the body, and so go to waste. Many work with each other, for instance, the body needs adequate levels of vitamin C to absorb iron, so when iron supplements are taken on their own, they are ineffective if the correct levels of vitamin C are not present in the diet. However, in blue-green algae, we find the perfect balance of nutrients for our needs, as if nature had designed it specifically for human use.
Klamath Lake blue-green algae contains:
All the essential trace minerals: boron, calcium, chromium, cobalt, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, zinc and vanadium, in perfect balance for optimum health.
Vitamins thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), pyrodoxine (B6), niacin (B3), vitamin B12, vitamin C., choline, pantothenic acid (B5), biotin, folic acid, and vitamin E., also in exactly the right balance for maximum bioavailability.
All eight amino acids, and in a form more easily digested by the body than those found in meat and vegetable protein (85% assimilable, whereas beef is only 20% assimilable).
Thousands of live active enzymes. Enzymes are a little mentioned component of health, yet vital to every process of the body. They are completely destroyed by temperatures of over 118 degrees centigrade: consequently, all cooked food is devoid of enzymes, and many of us may be lacking in sufficient amounts to ensure vitality, especially in winter months when our intake of fruit and salads tends to be lower. A daily dose of blue-green algae can be invaluable in providing us with some of this precious resource.
The highest source of chlorophyll in the plant kingdom, as well as other health-giving pigments. Chlorophyll is an amazing healer, and helps to correct overacidity in the body.
RNA/DNA, nucleic acids essential in the reparation of cells and growth of body tissue.
Essential fatty acids. These fats are vital to good health, but as they are only found in fish, and seeds such as flax and hemp, they are often lacking in a vegan diet.
One of the highest known natural sources of beta-carotene, a rich source of vitamin A.
It can be used on a daily basis, simply to sustain good health, but it has also been used to treat more serious illnesses such as IBS, Alzheimer's disease, anaemia, hypoglycemia, liver fatigue, depression, and candida. It has been proven to aid concentration and memory, strengthen the immune system, and counteract over-acidity in the body. It is also an invaluable addition to a child's diet: as any parent knows, it can be a nightmare trying to strike a balance between a child's fussy habits and meeting their nutritional needs. I put a small amount of algae powder in my son's drinks every day, ensuring his health and my peace of mind. It is available in liquid, powdered, or tablet form, and most people find 1-2g a day sufficient. It has a bitter taste, which is easily disguised with fruit juice or a sweetener such as agave syrup.
