Deep, dark greens are an especially important part of any optimal health diet. The reason these are so important is because of their chlorophyll and antioxidant content. There are three green superfood powders that are an important addition to any healthy diet. These are wild Klamath Lake blue-green algae, spirulina and chlorella.
Spirulina is an algae that comes from the oceans of Hawaii. Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica is the best source of this amazing superfood. It is 2300% more iron rich than spinach, 3900% more beta carotene rich than carrots, 300% more calcium rich than milk, and 375% more protein rich than tofu. It is rich in calcium, magnesium and all 94 trace elements. This particular type of Spirulina can help to improve eyesight, immune function, cholesterol levels, cellular health and energy levels.
Klamath Lake blue-green algae is a wild algae grown in upper Klamath Lake. The water that drains into the lake from the rainfall in the Cascade mountains brings with it mineral rich volcanic soil. This coupled with sunshine and pure air makes a perfect growth medium for the algae. It contains more B12 vitamin, protein and chlorophyll than most other food sources. According to Dr. Gabriel Cousens, people that take Klamath Lake blue-green algae experience an increase in mental alertness and stamina, short and long term memory, problem solving, creativity and an overall greater sense of well-being.
Chlorella was discovered by Japanese scientists in the 1960’s as a food that promotes good health. It is a single cell green algae that contains 5 to 10 times more chlorophyll than other algae. It is an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, nucleic acid, fiber, amino acids and CGF (chlorella growth factor). It is a blood purifier and immune stimulator. It is important that the cell wall of the chlorella algae be broken for proper digestibility. When you find a chlorella product it should say, “broken cell wall chlorella”.
