Stem Essentials - 60 Capsules
Stem Cells are derived from the bone marrow, they travel around the body and support optimal organ and tissue functions. Stem Cell enhancers are products that support the natural role of stem cells throughout the body. Blue Green Algae is one of those enhancers.
Blue Green Algae is one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet, containing gluco-proteins, vitamins, minerals, simple carbohydrates, lipids, and biologically active enzymes.
The scientific name is Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae (AFA) and is a wild algae found in fresh water. It is a naturally occurring perennial that is harvested and stored to retained most of the active vital nutrients.

Blue Green Algae is the most nutrient dense food on the planet, containing glyco-proteins, vitamins, minerals, simple carbohydrates, lipids and biologically active enzymes. Due to the algae’s nutritious soft cell wall, these nutrients are readily available to the body. As the body uses only a small amount of energy to convert this superfood into fuel, consuming Blue Green Algae is a fast, efficient and energizing way to improve any diet. The discovery of the incredible food value concentrated in AFA, Aphanizomenon Flos Aquae, an ancient blue-green microalgae, has popularized this nutrient dense whole food that contains more protein, B12 and chlorophyll than any other food source. Blue Green Algae has such a complete nutritional profile, available in forms that are directly accessible and easily superior to any other algae on the market and has become the focus of much attention in the health food industry.
The technical term APHANIZOMENON (genus) and FLOS-AQUAE (species) are actually zoological terms of classification that literally mean “invisible living flower of water” in Greek. To fully classify AFA blue-green algae scientifically is to state all biological categories from the largest to the smallest as follows:
Blue Green Algae is a wild, fresh water algae growing in natural abundance in Upper Klamath Lake. The precipitation that falls on the Southern Oregon Cascade Mountains washes tons of mineral-rich volcanic soil into the alkaline lake annually. This mineral-rich water, clean air, and high intensity sunlight make the unique ecosystem of Upper Klamath Lake the most perfect growth medium for A.F.A.
Blue Green Algae, unlike cultivated algae, is a naturally occurring perennial. Its survival depends on the heartiest strain reproducing itself, and its uncanny ability to communicate environmental and other conditions to each strand in the bloom. During summer months, the algae reproduces itself every four days, creating a massive bloom of up to 200 million pounds annually. Blue Green Algae is harvested fresh from the lake on a daily basis, screened to remove debris and excess water, fresh micro-filtered to be free of potential contaminants, then flash frozen and stored at -40º F until processing. Blue Green Algae is thoroughly laboratory tested, freeze-dried, never heat processed, and retains most of its biologically active vital nutrients in a naturally balanced profile.
Research has shown that what your body absorbs and assimilates is as important as what you eat. Microalgae, existing at the beginning of the food chain, provides the simplest form of balanced, whole food nutrients. Blue Green Algae has a very nutritious, easily digested, soft cell wall, comprised of a glucolipoprotein complex. This allows rapid absorption of vital nutrients at almost no cost to the body’s digestive energy supplies. Most of the nutrients in AFA are active and in forms that are directly useable by the body.
