If you know many raw foodists, you’ll know that Blue Green Algae is one of their staples. I know, because having been a raw foodist for a time, it became one of my staples, as it is a concentrated source of protein and of vitamins and minerals.
These days it’s hard to think of blue green algae without picturing a scene from my raw food days. I was participating in a permaculture workshop in Hawaii that centered around raw food living. During meal time, I would see half the participants’ mouths covered in a green mess. No really! It oozed out between their teeth and dribbled down their chin…these were real enthusiasts that used this superfood like ketchup. While I may never be that big of a fan, I do appreciate the power of this concentrated green and currently use it on a weekly basis myself.
The benefits of blue green algae have been shown to reduce inflammation, lower cholesterol levels, and lower sugar levels for diabetics. And studies on animals have shown results with cancer prevention and treatment.
Ready to give blue green algae a try? Make sure that you source your blue green algae from a company that is committed to high standards in harvesting, as it can be contaminated with toxins called mycotoxins and other harmful bacteria. Blue green algae from Lake Klamath is reported as the safest and of highest quality.
If you have an auto-immune disease, such as rheumatoid arthritis or multiple sclerosis, please check with your Doctor before taking blue-green algae products, as it may worsen your condition.
