Spirulina is a microscopic blue-green algae in the shape of a spiral coil, which is found living in both fresh and sea water.It was a food source for the Aztecs and other Mesoamericans until the 16th century. Spirulina was harvested from Lake Texcoco and is described by Cortes as being sold as cakes to his soldiers. Its use dates to the 9th century in the Kanem Empire, which was located in the present countries of Chad, Nigeria and Libya.

Most spirulina that is cultivated is produced in open-channel raceway ponds with paddle-wheels to agitate the water. The largest producers are the United States, India, Thailand, Taiwan, China, Burma, Pakistan and Chile.

It’s unusually high in protein containing 55% to 77% by dry weight depending on the source. The protein is a complete protein and contains all essential amino acids, although compared to the protein found in meat, milk and eggs; it contains reduced amounts of methionine, lysine and cysteine. But it’s superior to protein found in typical plant protein such as found in legumes.

In addition, it’s rich in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA). It also provides alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), linoleic acid (LA), stearidonic acid (SDA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docoahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (AA).Spirulina contains vitamin B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), nicotinamide, B6 (pyridoxine), folic acid, vitamin A , Vitamin C, vitamin D and vitamin E.

Spirulina has been shown to control blood sugar levels and cravings making it an important food for diabetics. It can also be used for weight loss and as a nutritional supplement.

Chlorella is a genus of single-celled green algae. During the late 1940s and the early 1950s there was a global fear of an uncontrolled population boom and chlorella was seen as a promising primary food source. There are thousands of research papers on chlorella and at one time NASA had even earmarked chlorella to be grown on the international space station.

It’s one of the most common supplements used in Japan today The Japanese frequently take it by adding it to tea, soup, juice, milk, noodles, yogurt, and other foods. Like spirulina it contains a complete protein profile. It contains all the B vitamins as well vitamin C and vitamin E and many minerals. It’s also rich in chlorophyll.

Clinical studies on Chlorella suggest its use in polychlorinated dibenzodioxins detoxification in humans and animals and in healing from radiation exposure in animals. It has the ability to reduce high blood pressure, lower serum cholesterol levels, accelerate wound healing, and enhance immune functions in humans.

Wild Blue-green Algae

Wild blue-green algae are a phyto-plankton and it contains virtually every nutrient. It’s 60% protein and has a more complete protein profile than beef or soy. Wild blue-green algae are a great source of beta carotene, B vitamins and chlorophyll.

Wild blue-green algae (Aphanizemenon flos-aqua or AFA) from Klamath Lake, Oregon is unique. It’s a wild, uncultivated plant food and is one of the few species of algae which grows wild in its own natural habitat, and is rich in nutrients. Lake Klamath is nestled 3000 feet up in the almost inaccessible Cascade Mountains of Oregon and boasts one of the most abundant supplies of minerals and trace elements. This mineral treasury is the result of massive volcanic eruptions that occurred several thousand years ago, which blanketed the area with millions of tons of mineral- rich volcanic ash.

Wild blue-green algae has been shown to improve memory and brain function, strengthen the immune system and help fight against viruses that cause the flu and common cold.

When barley grass is harvested to make juice, it’s about 45 percent protein. It has five times the minerals found in animal protein.

Barley grass is believed to contain thousands of enzymes. It has one of the highest natural levels of the enzyme superoxide dismutase, which is a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from free radical attack.

Barley grass also contains chlorophyll, which is a natural detoxifier that rids the intestines of stored toxins.
