Why Blue-Green Algae?

Health recommendations start here: with food-in-the-tank. Exercise is essential, but you’re not going to exercise if you’re too tired, overwhelmed, anxiety-ridden, or under-nourished to bust out the yoga mat or running shoes.

My Algae Story

I’ve been a daily consumer of blue-green algae (aphanizomenon flos-aquae) since 1994. My personal experience (I have to be careful not to make any sweeping health claims here!) is that the algae rocks.

Granted, I was in high school when I first started taking blue-green algae. I had all of the natural energy of a teenager, and no physical challenges. However, I was prone to mood swings, and that old monster, PMS.

While a student in college and graduate school, despite how cash-poor I might have been, I would always kick myself when I’d let my algae supply run out, so I learned to avoid this as much as possible. When I take less algae, or none at all, PMS comes back, mood swings come back, and I don’t have as much energy to hike, do yoga, or homework or my hobbies. A couple of times I’ve found myself driving down the road, scowling at other drivers, pissed about something, and suddenly I realize, “Heck! Most people live like this a lot of the time! This sucks…”

When I’ve got the algae, I still get a touch moody here and there, and I still need physical exercise to get my blood and brain going, but a vast chasm separates Felicia with, from Felicia without, her algae!

It’s Not Rocket Science, But Close

Adding algae to a healthy diet is like switching from an unhealthy (i.e., fast food) diet, to a healthy one (i.e., organic, fresh, lean). Adding algae is another whole step beyond normal, healthy eating: welcome to robust, super-food eating.

While there have been studies here and there over the years that have sought to isolate how the algae works, why it works, or even if it works, it’s all a distant second to my personal experience: it works for me, and I’m not the same person without it. Why? Because even though I eat a vegetarian, organic and varied diet, we can only get so much nutrients from soils that are beaten all to hell. (Truly, this is a serious problem. Check out Symphony of the Soil.) Also, because the lives we live and environments we live in are replete with chemicals and stressors: personally, I can use all of the help I can get to fend-off synthetic chemicals, to cleanse them out of me, and to recover from stress.

Nevertheless, scientists are working hard to map out algae species. Currently there are hundreds of thousands of algae species, and perhaps as many as eight thousand species of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria). However, there is some disagreement in the scientific community on what constitutes a “species,” and that debate is not likely to be solved any time soon. However, because it is a complicated field, New Earth relies on scientists to make sure they are harvesting the good stuff, and there are tests, tests, and more tests all along the way!

No More Hovering by the Fridge

Another symptom that I’m out of algae: hanging out by the refrigerator. And a general increase in sugar cravings by about 50%. If I find myself craving chocolate and stop and think, “This isn’t like me, what’s going on?” then the light bulb above my head turns on: I’ve been out of algae! This has happened so many times…I think sometimes I purposefully let myself run out of my blue-green just to sort of “test” and “just see…” and the pattern remains consistent!

90-Day Money-Back Guarantee

There is a 90-day money back guarantee. Why? Because algae rocks, and you’ll know it when you try it. It might take a few days or weeks to rock your world, but trust me, it will. (I’m pretty sure that’s not a medical claim.)
