Aphanizomenon flos-aquae {AFA} is a complex, nutritionally complete, freshwater algae unique to only one location in the world. It contains a potent mood altering molecule known as the molecule of love or joy [PEA] which boosts dopamine production resulting in remarkable and immediate improvements for depression and anxiety. It is also an immunity booster known for its ability to activate immune cell activity.

The Story

Aphanizomenon flos-aquae {AFA} literally means” invisible flower of the water” and is a unique hyper potent algae superfood grown only in one location in the world, Upper Klamath Lakes Oregon. AFA is widely accepted as one of the world’s most complete foods. AFA is truly a product of its environment, which in this case is the best growing conditions for freshwater algae possible. Approximately 8000 years ago an enormous volcanic eruption of Mt Mazama, formed Crater Lake. The mineral compounds from this geological event continue to supercharge the pristine alkaline lake environment with rich, life enhancing mineral compounds. The mineral rich environment combined with about 300 days a year of sunshine and you have the ideal scenario for nature’s most potent superfood!  AFA is not your standard grocery store spirulina or chlorella, but a supercharged blue green algae with a complex and complete nutritional profile, combined with  unique cellular structure and molecular composition. AFA contains an abundance of Phenylethylamine PEA, a neuromodulator or a neurotransmitter that is known to be a powerful psychoactive compound that our bodies produce naturally, responsible for the feelings of love and Joy. Small amounts of PEA are found in chocolate but AFA contains many times more. The credibility of PEA supplementation on patients with depression and ADHD is undeniable with reports of AFA being an effective antidepressant and general mood enhancer without any addictive or toxic side effects. The positive mood enhancing effects can be immediate, especially when absorbed as a potent tincture. AFA supplementation is similar chemically to the feeling after a workout without the workout. Since our bodies produce PEA after exercise or when associated with romantic love this effect has tremendous potential for immediate use as needed, or in a blend with other compounds.

AFA is also known to exhibit strong antiviral and antibacterial properties and rapid activation of host immune cells. In other words AFA activates your body’s own immune system activity, it literally gets your immune cells actively looking for pathogens in particular NK cells looking for tumors. Not to mention it has properties to regenerate stem cells.

We believe that everyone can benefit from AFA due to its perfect ratio of nutritional properties, which are easily absorbable in the body.  We have included it as part of each of our bundles for health, due to its healing potential.
