Klamath Lake Blue-Green Algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae or AFA) is one of nature's most nourishing and regenerative food sources. Our certified organic algae grow naturally in the mineral-rich waters of Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon. Its balanced and complete nutrient profile gives it the remarkable capacity to help nurture and sustain our physical and mental wellness. The unusual peptide molecules found in Klamath Lake algae have been shown to enhance mental clarity and focus. Due to blue-green algae's nutritious soft cell wall, the algae's nutrients are readily available to our bodies.
At the peak of its summer bloom, we harvest the algae fresh from the lake. Our unique harvesting, triple-filtering process, and low-temperature drying method result in our brilliant blue-green crystals shimmering with health and vitality. After harvest and filtration, samples of our algae are sent to an independent laboratory that is foremost in the field of algae testing; the lab is certified by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and registered with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). A complete spectrum of tests is performed at the laboratory to ensure that our Blue-Green Algae is 100% AFA and meets the non-detectable standard for microcystin and any other impurities such as pesticides and heavy metals. Every batch of our Organic Blue-Green Algae is tested and meets the most stringent standards for purity.
