There is a super food that health experts consider as the most nutritious food in the planet. It’s called Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae(AFA) an edible blue-green algae which helps to boost energy and promote good physical and mental health and well-being.
Algae are non-flowering plants that thrive in water, soil, rocks and on bark of trees. There are about 50,000 species of algae on the planet and they provide 90 percent of the earth’s oxygen supply and 80 percent of the world’s food.
Commonly known as cyanophyta, AFAs are rich in chlorophyll, which is considered as the blood of the plant kingdom because it is only one atom away from hemoglobin. Chlorophyll in AFA works to increase oxygen in the body. It also contains Phenylethylamine or PEA, a chemical produced by the brain when you experience intense happiness, joy or love.
Despite the proliferation of algae on the planet, there is only one place on earth where AFAs grew and are harvested. It is in Upper Klamath Lake, a 140 square mile lake in Oregon with water deposits coming from 17 streams and rivers. Upper Klamath Lake is one of the few remaining lakes on the planet which has an amazingly high concentration of minerals which resulted from a massive volcanic reaction some seven centuries ago.
AFA has been used as a health food by ancient people, but its nutritional value became known to the outside world only about 20 years ago. According to health experts, AFAs contain vitamins B, C and E. It also contains vitamin E, folic acid and all of the amino acids which are the building blocks of the proteins the contain.
This type of algae is also rich in essential Omega 3 and six fatty acids. One very remarkable aspect of these algae is its 97 percent absorption rate when ingested. Only a few types of foods can be absorbed by the body with a percentage this high and the body can absorb only five to 25 percent of manufactured vitamins.
AFA has many health benefits. It is an energy-giver and it promotes health to your major organs to optimize their functions. Aside from its health and energy benefits, it also it is also capable of enhancing stamina and increase mental alertness and focus, strengthens your immune system, keeps you rejuvenated and repairs worn-out tissues of the body.
