The only known source of this specific variety (AFA) of blue green algae is Upper Klamath Lake, Oregon. Known for being one of the world’s most pristine lakes, it is surrounded by ancient volcanic mountains, and plentiful with rich sediment. Klamath Lake now has more than 37 feet of this sediment, which is why it is known to be one of the most nutrient and mineral rich areas on earth. The nutrients in this lake, plus the lake’s pure water from fresh mountain springs, combined with an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, are the components that allow this most pristine environment to grow a perfectly nutrient-rich food.
The concentration of micronutrients found in Foundation Blue Green Algae are beyond comparison. The small molecular structure allows nutrients to be more easily assimilated than any other food from the plant or animal kingdom. Foundation Blue Green Algae is 60% high quality protein
. The most concentrated protein, per weight, found in any other food, including animal products. The protein assimilation rate for Foundation Blue Green Algae is 75%. This is much higher than Spirulina (37%), Chlorella (20%), and red meat (18%).
Foundation Blue Green Algae contains all of the essential, and most of the non-essential amino acids, plus easily assimilated B-vitamins (more B-12 than liver). Also, contained in this micronutrient are some of the richest supplies of chlorophyll. Vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, antioxidants, Applied Health’s AET enzymes, and other essential nutrients make this a complete nutritional package.
Advanced Enzyme Technology (AET) is Applied Health’s proprietary enzyme delivery system. Applied Health has added AET to Foundation Blue Green Algae to enhance nutrient absorption and utilization. All of Applied Health Solutions’ AET products work synergistically to encourage even greater health benefits.
Yes, it truly has a powerful effect on allergies, and strengthening the immune system, overall. The human body can better protect itself against allergens, viruses, bacteria, etc, when given the proper tools through nutrition. Nourishing the body and cleansing the toxins will strengthen the entire immune system, along with building energy, stamina, and decreasing allergies.
Foundation Blue Green Algae is an extremely effective detoxifier, and a few annoying cleansing symptoms (such as: minor headaches, body aches, or digestive disorders) may appear in the beginning. Because of this, we recommend beginning the Foundation Program with less than the usual dose. This is to ensure the body is not immediately burdened with a high concentration of toxins releasing into the bloodstream. Remember, detoxifying the body is a “good” thing and will encourage your immune system to strengthen and your body to get the most effectiveness out of the nutrients provided by Foundation Blue Green Algae.
Start by taking one capsule a day, for the first three days. Gradually increase by adding one capsule to your dose, every three days. Drink plenty of water to help in the detoxifying process. If the cleansing symptoms get too annoying, then just cut back on the dose for a few days, until the symptoms ease. Then, begin to increase the dose again, gradually.
Foundation is also a superb “food” for enhancing energy levels, before and during intense athletic activity. When involved in strenuous activity, take at least two capsules just before, and/or during the workout. Build up to as many capsules as you need. Remember, Foundation Blue Green Algae is a “food”, and everyone’s individual needs are different. Eventually, you will know what feels right for your body, and which daily intake is necessary for you.
