CERTIFIED ORGANIC Klamath Blue Green Algae
Klamath Blue Green Algae® is a wild and certified organic blue green algae that is harvested from the high-mineral crystal waters of Upper Klamath Lake, in the North-Western American state of Oregon. It's botanical name is Afanazomenon Flos-Aquae, and is collected using a unique floating harvester, engineered with state-of-the-art screening and refrigeration systems. The algae is then cool-dried using a gentle drying system to maintain nutritional integrity, and also concentrating its goodness by up to 20 times. Each and every batch is then lab tested to ensure purity before the algae is packed either straight into jars, or in vegan capsules and tablets.
This organic blue green algae has received wide mainstream media attention: Newsweek magazine reported that this wild wholefood from Upper Klamath Lake is one of the fastest growing items in the health food market; and it has been described in the British press as the greenfood supplement of choice by various high-profile personalities such as Jennifer Aniston, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.
While vitamin and mineral supplements have become heavily promoted for nearly a half-century, wild greenfoods such as Klamath blue green algae are becoming important components of leading-edge nutritional regimes as we find that wholefood nutrients are far better aborbed and utlized by the body than sythetically concentrated and isolated nutritional extracts. This is why many natural healthcare practitioners - including physicians, naturopaths, homeopaths, acupuncturists and chiropractors - are using The Really Healthy Company's algae as part of their patients' nutritional regimes.
