(AFA) is more commonly known as blue-green algae.
AFA first appeared on the earth about 4 billion
years ago. It was the first form of life on
(about 3 billion years ago) it developed into
larger cells which became 2 types of bacteria.
there the cells evolved into prokaryotic cells
(small cells with no nucleus) and eukaryotic
cells (cells with a nucleus--1,000 times larger
than AFA). That was 2 billion years ago.
the last billion years, DNA came into being and
all of the other cells that worked together to
create organisms came into being--like you and
are approximately 40,000 species of algae.
Approximately 39,000 are
There are 1,000 different
species of blue-green algae.
998 blue-green algae are
toxic to human beings (but okay to ingest after consumed
by other animals).
Only AFA and spirulina are
safe for direct human consumption.
AFA is a cold water algae
which has hardier than spirulina, has more EFAs and grows
naturally (versus being harvested artificially like
spirulina). Therefore, AFA supplies the greatest amount
of essential fatty acids and many more nutrients than any
other blue-green algae for human consumption.
Have you ever heard the saying .
"Eat cold water fish to stay healthy?"
is commonly known that cold water fish are a natural
source of essential fatty acids (EFAs). However, the fish
have EFAs because they eat the algae. So why not just eat
the algae yourself and get your EFAs directly?
