Who wants to drink some Algae? No, it's not a dare - if we can down smoothies made of all sorts of funky veggies and use Algae face masks, why not learn more about what other benefits it has to offer? Check out what Nida has for us today!
I had promised some more detoxes or smoothies and here we are - Today I bring you a smoothie with the single ingredient that is 1,000 more powerful than fruits and veggies. You might be saying what the wha..?! If you're hoping its chocolate, sadly its not (believe me I would be a champion in that category if it were haha!) Its Klamath Blue-green algae. I'm going to give you some detail on the benefits and its source, since its not a commonly heard of ingredient. I also want to stress on the fact that LESS is MORE here.
It comes from the Klamath Lake - home to a particular type of blue green algae called Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, which is similar to spirulina and chlorella, but just a wee bit different.
Aphanizomenon flos-aquae is a type of cyano-bacteria that biologically is quite similar to spirulina. It’s actually toxic in most places where it’s grown, but Klamath Lake is remarkably pure and free of toxins so the blue-green algae there can be ingested by humans.
It is the ultimate brain food and a powerful PINEAL GLAND ACTIVATOR! It contains more protein, B12 and chlorophyll than any other food on the planet. It is rich in neuropeptide precursors which are vital for neurotransmission which allows brain neurons (neurotransmitters) to communicate with each other in learning and memory.
“The greatest value of A.F.A. is not only its nutrient concentration, but its effect on the nervous system, specifically the pituitary, pineal, and hypothalamus. People taking A.F.A. have reported an overall increase in mental alertness, mental stamina, short and long term memory, problem solving, creativity, dream recall, a greater sense of well being and centeredness.” – Dr Gabriel Cousens, health guru
Not only is Klamath Blue Green Algae a powerful brain food for the pineal,pituitary and hypothalamus, it is the most nutrient dense food on the planet! In addition to its high potency, the body only has to use a small amount of energy to metabolize it. This makes it easy for the body to absorb and assimilate its nutrients, which it is full of. Klamath Blue Green Algae is full of vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, chlorophyll, simple carbohydrates, fatty acids, neuropeptide precursors, lipids, glyco-proteins and enzymes.
