Algae Are Nature's Unique Superfood

The next largest whole food source (not supplements) of GLA to mother’s milk is algae......

The Kingdoms in Nature are:

Bacteria (sometimes split into two Kingdoms)

Protista (means the very first)—includes unicellular (one-celled) and multicellular organisms, including algae, that are not part of the Fungi, Plant or Animal Kingdoms)



Animal (herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, including human)

Nature is designed such that each Kingdom is dependent on the ones below it. For example, ruminant animals (cows, sheep, goats, deer) would not be able to survive without the bacteria in their rumen that digest plant foods for them. They are actually eating fermented plant foods and bacteria. Algae are organisms in the Protista Kingdom at the bottom of the food chain. All beings (herbivores, carnivores, omnivores, including human) are dependent on plants, fungi, algae and bacteria for survival. Algae are literally a film that coats the Earth, in every natural body of water and in the soil. Since algae are everywhere in nature, all fungi, plants, animals and humans are designed to obtain certain nutrients from algae (which contain over 5,000 individual nutrients). When algae are lacking in our diet (as in the sanitized modern diet), our health may suffer from the missing nutrients. Algae are Nature’s most complete and original whole food for all species and serves as a universal food for the plant and animal (including human) Kingdoms. Algae are nature’s vitamin chest. There are some algae nutrients that are particularly beneficial that are hard to find from any other source. For example, Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) is usually only found in early mother’s milk. GLA stimulates the newborn’s immune system. So, how do adult animals get GLA if it needs to stimulate its immune system? GLA is present in seeds of borage, black currant, and evening primrose but how many eat those foods on a regular basis? The next largest whole food source (not supplements) of GLA to mother’s milk is algae. There is no other food that can nourish plants, herbivores, carnivores and omnivores like algae. Algae occupy a unique role in the food chain for all plants, animals and humans. No other food (and certainly supplement) can make this claim. Algae are not just “pond scum.” Algae are Nutrient Factory Algae are miniature factories producing over 4,000 enzymes, vitamins, essential fatty acids, minerals, amino acids and protein. Algae can help our body to: Accelerate healing Improve digestion Detoxify our body Produce moist healthy skin Relieve arthritis, gain flexibility Balance hormonal disorders Stimulate our immune system Enhance growth and tissue repair Help prevent degenerative diseases Reduce illness and doctor bills Achieve optimum health and longer life Critical Need for Enzymes Live enzymes are needed to break down food and help with the absorption of nutrients. Not only are digestive enzymes essential but many metabolic enzymes are needed for other vital body functions such as producing energy, reducing inflammation and speeding healing. This is important because all cooked food is lacking enzymes since heat kills live enzymes. Eating cooked and processed food every day will eventually deplete your body of live enzymes. Without enzymes one ages faster and is prone to the degenerative diseases such as arthritis, fibroyalgia, auto-immune disease, diabetes, irritable bowel syndrome and cancer. A perfect whole food product with live enzymes is algae (for example, Spirulina, blue-green algae). Ancient cultures instinctually harvested algae to give to the sick, elderly and pregnant women. Our modern day diet of cooked and processed foods and tap water does not contain algae and therefore we are usually deficient in enzymes, essential fatty acids, vitamins, trace minerals, and amino acids. Taking algae naturally provides us with all the nutrients in the natural form and exact dosage that Nature intended. If we do not get enzymes in our live foods, we must rely on our storehouse of enzymes produced in their pancreas. Eating cooked food (without enzymes) for 10 years is like making a withdrawal from your savings account every day for ten years and never making a deposit. Eventually the savings account gets depleted. When an our savings account of enzymes is depleted, aging accelerates and degenerative diseases start.
