Read and Learn More about Algae Supplementation
We now know why Algae supplementation is so effective, and for more than just raising energy levels and increasing mental clarity. Below you will find an excerpt from the book "Primordial Food" authored by Christian Drapeau, MSc.
Mr. Drapeau, a foremost scientist in the study of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA or blue-green algae), holds a Masters of Science degree in Neurology and Neurosurgery from the Montreal Neurological Institute, an affiliate of McGill University, Montreal, Canada, and has been extensively involved in the study of nutrition, naturopathy and various natural therapies.
Most significantly, Mr. Drapeau collaborated with many scientists affiliated with Harvard University, McGill University, the University of Illinois, Oregon State University, the University of New Mexico and the University of Mississippi in the study of the effects of AFA on human health. Mr. Drapeau continues his involvement in the clinical study of AFA.
The following is an excerpt from the book "Primordial Food", printed with author's permission:
"The health benefits of AFA have been reported for more than two decades, yet it is only recently that science has revealed the mechanisms by which AFA acts on the body, and the astonishing health benefits of AFA. AFA contains a wide variety of phytonutrients that promote health, such as chlorophyll, carotenoids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. AFA contains unique molecules that modulate various aspects of human health such as:
Phenylethylamine (PEA) known as the "molecule of love." Beside enhancing concentration and attention, PEA is a natural mood elevator and antidepressant.
Phycocyanin, the blue pigment in AFA, which is a natural selective COX-2 inhibitor with strong anti-inflammatory properties.
A polysaccharide that stimulates the migration of immune cells in the body; the only natural compound known to stimulate immune cell migration.
But the most extraordinary discovery is the ability of AFA to stimulate stem cell release and migration, making AFA the first natural compound known to stimulate the natural innate phenomenon of healing, regeneration and repair in the human body."
