What are micro-algae?

What are micro-algae?

One of the most healthful foods on Earth is spread in a fine film over most of the planet’s surface, invisible to the naked eye. The plant cells in this film are called micro-algae. These little organisms are miniature factories, turning out amazing amounts of nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, protein, and enzymes. Some species contain more nutrition per ounce than anything you can eat, including bee pollen, the most nutritionally dense land-based food.

There are over 25,000 species of algae and thousands of micro-algae, and more are discovered each year. Many contain a higher concentration of chlorophyll than any other known plant and have a very complex RNA and DNA. Some micro-algae are a complete protein food, containing large amounts of beta-carotene (provitamin A), all the B vitamins, vitamins C and E, and many minerals in high enough amounts to be considered perfect food. Most importantly, the essential amino acid profile of algae is virtually identical to that required by the human body.

Certain micro-algae are effective in eliminating heavy metals, such as lead, mercury, copper, and cadmium. The protein yield is greater than soybeans, corn, and beef. Some algae contain GLA, a very important essential fatty acid and a precursor to the body’s master hormones. Research has shown that Spirulina algae alone could double the complete protein available to humanity on a fraction of the world’s land. Acre for acre, Spirulina yields 20 times more protein than soybeans and 400 times more protein than beef; its makeup is 71% protein, 17% carbohydrates, and 7% fats.

Several types of micro-algae stimulate the immune system, improve digestion, detoxify the body, enhance growth and tissue repair, accelerate healing, protect against radiation, help prevent degenerative disease, and promote longer life. They may strengthen the liver, the body’s major detoxifying organ. Many have a beneficial effect on arthritis and hypertension. One example of a most important benefit comes from a combination of molecules that biochemists call the Controlled Growth Factor, a unique composition that provides a noticeable increase in sustained energy and immune health when eaten regularly.

(Adapted from  Dr. Roland Thomas’ free eBook, “Awakening the Genius Within: The Culmination in Cellular Nutrition,” which tells the story of how Dr. Michael Kiriac invented bio-algae concentrates, popularly known as BioSuperfood.)

What is BioSuperfood? And what are bio-algae concentrates?

What is BioSuperfood? And what are bio-algae concentrates?

BioSuperfood is simply the brand name for bio-algae concentrates, which are complementary and synergistic mixes of the four most nutrient-dense algae on Earth. Algae have long been known to be a remarkably powerful source of nutrition (Whales eat it!), and the benefits of BioSuperfood far exceed the benefits of any single alga, algae blend, green food, or superfood known today. After decades of successful research in Europe, Asia, and North America, BioSuperfood has been used for more than 25 years in human and animal applications and is quite possibly the most advanced nutraceutical superfood available at this time.

How is BioSuperfood different from other brands of algae?

How is BioSuperfood different from other brands of algae?

Superior Nutrition. Meticulously researched and formulated to contain the four most nutrient-dense micro-algae on Earth, BioSuperfood is exponentially more nutritious than plain algae and, therefore, has significantly more nourishing, rejuvenating, and healing effects on the body and brain; it is a perfect example of the saying, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.”

BioSuperfood differs from plain algae due to the completeness, balance, and synergies obtained from its selected algae when blended in precise proportions and grown to peak nutritional potential. This results in a superior product containing more than 5,000 (!) naturally occurring nutrients including proteins, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and trace elements (micronutrients), chlorophylls, mixed carotenoids and antioxidants, essential and non-essential fatty acids, polysaccharides, thousands of enzymes, rare phytonutrients, and many, many others.

Nutrient Absorption. Cellular Regeneration. Metabolic Healing. Most people assume that our bodies absorb all nutrients efficiently and completely. Unfortunately, nutrient absorption is greatly diminished or impaired by poor health, stress, and the modern diet. By regrouping thousands of naturally occurring, balanced, and synergistic nutrients to overcome the inefficiencies and blockages in the digestive system, BioSuperfood increases nutrient absorption, enhances cellular regeneration, reduces the load on the cleansing organs of the body, and awakens the hypothalamus, the “Genius” or “governing region” of the brain. This in turn triggers cellular awakening and metabolic healing in the body’s trillions of cells, boosting the immune and nervous systems and other vital organs. The downward spiral towards disease is reversed into an upward spiral back to health.

Purity. To ensure the strictest quality control and to prevent potential exposure to environmental toxins, the micro-algae in BioSuperfood are grown, not in the wild, like many other algae, but in enclosed hydroponic bioreactors in volcanic thermal spring water on the remote Kamchatka Peninsula in Siberia. This pristine, nutrient-dense water is piped from 2,000 feet below the surface of the Earth and is never exposed to the atmosphere. Once harvested, the algae are exported to Canada for blending, encapsulating, and bottling under strict quality assurance.

Is BioSuperfood a drug?

Is BioSuperfood a drug?

No. BioSuperfood is not a drug or pharmaceutical of any kind, nor is it meant to be a remedy for any specific disease or medical condition. It is a highly potent, 100% organic superfood that “awakens the genius within” by delivering superior nutrition directly to the cells of the body, thereby healing vital organs, boosting the immune and nervous systems, and in general awakening the body’s own power to heal itself.

Each of the three BioSuperfood formulas was awarded an individual Natural Product Number (NPN) from the Health Products and Food Branch of Health Canada (Canada’s equivalent to the FDA). Each formula was treated as a separate application each with its own ingredient and nutrient analysis, detail analysis for purity (free of pollutants and improper level of heavy metals or other toxicity), and manufacturing process proof of quality.

Who invented BioSuperfood?

Who invented BioSuperfood?

Scientific research on bio-algae concentrates began in the early 1970s in the Soviet Union in response to the pandemic of disease (most especially cancers) ravaging the nation’s human and animal populations. So dire was the problem that the country’s livestock, which had been collectivized onto factory-style farms, was in danger of almost complete devastation.

Faced with ever-increasing human mortality and the potential loss of the country’s food supply, the government invested more than 20,000 man-years and millions of dollars testing tens of thousands of species of algae on more than 20 species of animals (individual animals numbering in the millions – unheard of in most studies) to solve the problem. The team of scientists was led by Dr. Michael Kiriac of Moldova, whose pioneering research convinced him that nutrition was not only a solution to the prevention of disease, but also the very foundation of health.

The devastating 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine occasioned the first experimental usage of bio-algae concentrates on humans. Due to his previous successes with animals and cancers, Dr. Kiriac was given the opportunity to test bio-algae concentrates on those suffering from radiation sickness. Many of these patients, including children, experienced great improvements in their health compared to those who did not receive the algae. Amazingly, several patients in advanced stages of disease who took the bio-algae concentrates recovered despite continuous exposure to contaminated food and water sources. Dr. Kiriac was nominated Moldova’s Person of the Year in 1987 for his assistance with the Chernobyl crisis as well as for the resounding achievement of his animals studies and successes at Moldova’s economically important poultry center.

Dr. Kiriac’s achievements in algae research have been recognized with many other awards and medals both in Europe and here in the United States. His research led not only to the extraordinary algae concentrates that became BioSuperfood but also to innovations in hydroponic technologies, some of which were patented and are still in use today. Dr. Kiriac and his family emigrated from Moldova to Canada in the 1990s and in 1998 formed BioNutrition, Inc., which manufactures both BioSuperfood and BioPreparation. He remains one of the world’s leading authorities in algae nutrition and Earth ecology.

What are the differences among the three formulas f1, f2, and f3?

What are the differences among the three formulas f1, f2, and f3?

Because no two people or animals are exactly alike, BioSuperfood formulas f1, f2, f3, and BioPreparation formulas F2+ and F3+ were developed in order to accommodate individual biochemistry and different states of health. A developing child has a different health state and resilience, immunity, and nutritional needs than that of an average adult, a serious athlete, a vegan, or someone suffering from a severe degenerative condition.

All of the formulas contain green algae (Spirulina Pacifica and Spirulina Platensis) and red algae (Dunaliella Salina and Haematoccocus Pluvialis). The green algae contain a broad spectrum of proteins, minerals, and chlorophyll that provide superior nutritional value, while the red algae contain a larger amount of mixed carotenoids, antioxidants, phytonutrients, and fatty acids. The more potent formulas contain increasingly greater amounts of red algae, which are known to reach the brain more efficiently and better aid the body in detoxification and self-repair.

What is the difference between BioSuperfood and BioPreparation?

What is the difference between BioSuperfood and BioPreparation?

In essence, nothing; BioSuperfood and BioPreparation contain identical ingredients. The only difference between the two is that BioPreparation is freeze dried at a colder temperature in order to achieve a slightly finer powder to increase assimilation for the shorter digestive tracts of smaller animals like dogs and cats. As with many other kinds of natural foods, both humans and animals can safely consume BioSuperfood. Thus, it is perfectly safe and acceptable (not to mention economical) to feed your larger animals (horses, cattle, goats, etc.) BioSuperfood.

Can BioSuperfood reduce the number of supplements I take every day?

Can BioSuperfood reduce the number of supplements I take every day?

It can.

Due to its superior nutritional potency and extremely high bioavailability (ability to be absorbed by the body), many people report a significant reduction in their daily supplement regimen after switching to BioSuperfood. This is just one reason why Dr. Roland Thomas, Founder and President of BIOAGE and Dr. Kiriac’s main collaborator, calls BioSuperfood “the most advanced nutraceutical superfood available on earth at this time.”

Not only can the potential reduction in the number of supplements you take every day save you time and frustration, it can also save you money.

Is BioSuperfood safe? How is its quality assured?

Is BioSuperfood safe? How is its quality assured?

It is completely safe.

Because BioSuperfood and BioPreparation are whole food products and not medicine, there are no known contraindications; each formula can be safely consumed by children, adults (including pregnant and nursing women), and the elderly. Even so, due to its high potency and detoxifying effects, some taking BSF/BP for the first time may experience some discomfort. Therefore, it is recommended that people on prescription medication(s) or who suffer from any conditions related to the following areas begin with formula f2 core before moving up to f3 (if desired): heart, brain (including seizures), onset of seizures, hyperthyroid, cardiovascular (including high blood pressure and varicose veins), overweight. Those with weak constitutions or who suffer from severely compromised immunity are encouraged to consider beginning with f1 base.

BioSuperfood contains only the four micro-algae Spirulina Pacifica, Spirulina Platensis, Dunaliella Salina, and Haematoccoccus Pluvialis. It includes no other ingredients and is manufactured without the use of excipients (i.e., bulking agents, fillers, or diluents), which can interfere with digestion and absorption. The micro-algae are grown in enclosed hydroponic bioreactors in volcanic thermal spring water without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones, or feed additives. Every batch (not just random selections) is tested to be free from bacteria, herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals, and other contaminants (including radiation) before encapsulation. Each formula is 100% raw, organic, Kosher, and vegan.

Finally, each of the three BioSuperfood formulas was awarded an individual Natural Product Number (NPN) from the Health Products and Food Branch of Health Canada (Canada’s equivalent to the FDA). Each formula was treated as a separate application each with its own ingredient and nutrient analysis, detail analysis for purity (free of pollutants and improper level of heavy metals or other toxicity), and manufacturing process proof of quality.

I take prescription medication(s)/suffer from a certain health disorder. Can I take BioSuperfood?

I take prescription medication(s)/suffer from a certain health disorder. Can I take BioSuperfood?

Yes. Because BioSuperfood is a whole food product and not medicine, there are no known contraindications; each formula can be safely consumed by children, adults (including pregnant and nursing women), and the elderly.

However, due to its high potency and detoxifying effects, some taking BioSuperfood for the first time may experience some discomfort. Therefore, it is recommended that people on prescription medication(s) or who suffer from any conditions related to the following areas begin with formula f2 core before moving up to f3 forte (if desired): heart, brain (including seizures), onset of seizures, hyperthyroid, cardiovascular (including high blood pressure and varicose veins), overweight. Those with weak constitutions or who suffer from severely compromised immunity are encouraged to consider beginning with f1 base.

How much BioSuperfood should I consume each day?

How much BioSuperfood should I consume each day?

One can benefit from BioSuperfood by taking between 1-12 capsules daily. It is recommended to take the product in fewer quantities and more frequently throughout the day, rather than in few intakes of a larger quantity (i.e., 2 capsules before each meal is better than 6 capsules at breakfast); frequency of intakes trumps the size of the portion. Please consult your health professional if you are uncertain or have health issues.

RECOMMENDED DOSAGES

Therapeutic. 6-12 capsules daily. f2 or f3 is recommended. f3, the most potent formulation, is more suitable for chronic and acute conditions. Better results are obtained when taken hourly, one capsule at a time.

Adult Maintenance. 4-6 capsules f2 or f3 daily.

Child Maintenance. 1-3 capsules f1 daily.

Sports & Fitness. 1-2 capsules f3 before and after working out; 1 capsule every 30 minutes during a prolonged workout.

ADAPTATION PERIOD

Choose the adaptation mode that best fits your health condition.

Standard. Start with 1 capsule 2x per day for the first 5 days, then adjust the dose by adding 1 capsule each day to desired quantity.

Gradual. Start the program gradually in case of high blood pressure, pregnancy, cardiovascular issues, fragile intestine, brain injury, hyper-thyroid condition, candida, or any other fragile health condition. Begin with 1 capsule a day. Add 1 capsule every 7-10 day period until the desired quantity is reached. Take 1 capsule at a time.

PROGRAM DURATION

The therapeutic dosage should be followed for at least 3-6 months. However, degenerative conditions that took decades to develop may require a longer therapeutic program lasting 6-24 months. The maintenance dosage can be followed thereafter.

How long should I take BioSuperfood?

How long should I take BioSuperfood?

The greatest benefit of consuming BioSuperfood over time is prevention: it is much easier (not to mention much less expensive) to prevent imbalances and deficiencies in the body than to resolve them once they become chronic.

As a general rule of thumb, it takes at least 90 days for any permanent change in the body to take effect. Keep in mind, though, that no two people or animals are alike: some taking BioSuperfood for the first time experience dramatic changes in the first week, while others notice gradual changes over several months. Already healthy people may notice subtle positive changes such as more energy, better concentration, and improved digestion. Some notice a general feeling of wellness, while others have not gotten sick. Athletes report improved performance and faster recovery. Still others notice that they are in need of less medication.

Overall, keep in mind that BioSuperfood is food and, like any other food, should be eaten every day several times a day. However, knowing that BioSuperfood very well may be the most nutritious food on Earth, you may wish for you and your loved ones to take it every day for the rest of your lives.

I have difficulty swallowing capsules. Can I open them?

I have difficulty swallowing capsules. Can I open them?

Yes. Although BioSuperfood comes in easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules, the two-part capsules can be twisted open to release the powder inside. Some people prefer to mix the powder in water, juice, or in a smoothie. Some others like the natural taste of algae and let it dissolve slowly in their mouths or sublingually.
