1. Mysterious Klamath Lake
AFA blue-green algae is born in the crystal clear waters of Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon, a unique place. The area is a nature reserve, which makes it a clean and protected place.
2. Wild growing
Unlike most algae, Afa algae is truly wild, growing freely in lakes. This means that man does not care about their survival. They have taken care of their own survival. And AFA algae have been around for thousands of years and have survived to this day, making them extremely resilient and adaptable.
3. Are Blue-Green Algae AFA Toxic?
Are AFA Algae Toxic? There are many varieties of blue-green algae on earth that grow in different places. But only two of them are used for human consumption. Years ago research was done on another type of blue-green algae somewhere in the world that is not used for human consumption. β-Methylamino-L-alanine has been found in these algae, which in the long term may have a negative effect on brain function in humans. And so the myth ” Blue-green algae AFA are toxic ” was born. This has nothing to do with Blue Green Algae AFA from Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon USA. Afa algae has been used for many years and is subject to rigorous testing before it reaches us. So, AFA Algae are NOT toxic , on the contrary, they have a number of benefits for our health.
4. Secrets of Enzymes – The Secret to Easy Digestion
The enzymes in AFA algae are like magic, facilitating the absorption of nutrients.
When we hear about Algae , we usually think of seaweed. A very little known fact is that AFA blue-green algae comes from the fresh water Klamath Lake . We all know how polluted the seas and oceans are. The freshwater origin of AFA Algae gives them a cleaner and more stable environment for growth and they are distinguished by higher nutritional value, richness of minerals and safety for consumption.
6. They do not contain cellulose
Most green foods, including algae such as Spirulina and Chlorella, have a hard cellulose shell. Grazing animals such as cows and others have a special enzyme to break it down, but we humans do not have this enzyme . Because of this, it is difficult for us to process and digest foods containing cellulose. The absence of cellulose makes digestion of Algae AFA much more efficient than most other green foods, which often contain this difficult-to-digest polymer.
Did you know that AFA blue-green algae are allergen-free? They do not cause common allergic reactions. This makes them suitable for people with different dietary restrictions and sensitivities.
8. Microalgae with Big Benefits
Did you know that AFA blue-green algae are not ordinary algae, they are microalgae , meaning they pack a powerful nutritional punch in an extremely small size.
9. Growth in Waters of Diverse pH
AFA algae can grow in a wide range of pH values in water, making them highly adaptable and resistant to environmental changes. By consuming them, we also gain the ability to adapt more easily to changes in our lives.
10. Phenylethylamine and Falling in Love
Like our favorite cocoa, blue-green algae AFAs contain phenylethylamine ,
a substance that we release naturally when we are in love. And it is no coincidence that on Valentine’s Day , chocolate is so preferred. In practice , AFA algae stimulate our feeling of happiness and energy . This makes them not only a unique source of nutrients , but also a natural stimulator for improving our emotional state .
Another very interesting perspective through which we can look at phenylethylamine is appetite . We all know the feeling when we are in love, happy, full of energy and not even thinking about food . Phenylethylamine acts as an appetite suppressant , which can be useful when we want to work towards weight control. Interesting isn’t it?

And a Bonus fact about blue-green algae AFA
How Aquasource processes blue-green algae AFA
BioActive Dehydration® – BioActive dehydration
Processed fresh – not frozen!
Algae suppliers usually freeze and/or heat-dry them. This severely damages their density and nutritional value. The algae offered by AquaSource are dried at low temperatures using the patented BioActive Dehydration® method, which dehydrates the fresh algae to a powder without disturbing their nutritional elements, color, aroma and taste.
The drying process takes place at 37°C /99°F/, as during the process the temperature rises to 40.5°C /105°F/ in just 2 minutes, after which the temperature returns to normal. This drying method preserves all the substances in the algae, sparing their bioactive form. In normal drying methods, the main cause of damage is exposure to high temperature.
Packaging and encapsulation
AquaSource products are encapsulated and packaged by the company “G&G Vitamins” – one of the most prestigious food supplement factories in Great Britain, established in 1965. “G&G Vitamins is GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) certified and thus guarantees the high quality of its products.
