BioSuperfood and BioPreparation formulas contain only the four micro-algae listed above. 100% whole food, organic, raw, kosher, and vegan, they include no other ingredients and are manufactured without the use of excipients (i.e., bulking agents, fillers, or diluents), which can interfere with digestion and absorption. These micro-algae are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones, or feed additives.
To ensure the strictest quality control and to prevent potential exposure to environmental toxins, the micro-algae in BSF/BP are grown in enclosed hydroponic bioreactors in volcanic thermal spring water on the remote Kamchatka Peninsula in Siberia (pictured above). This pristine, nutrient-rich 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. Every lot (not just random selections) is tested for bacteria, herbicides, pesticides, heavy metals, and other contaminants (including radiation) before encapsulation.
Canada’s Natural Health Products Regulations require manufacturers of natural health products (NHPs) to obtain a product license. To do so, an applicant must provide detailed information about the product to Health Canada (Canada’s “FDA”), including: medicinal ingredients, source, dose, potency, non-medicinal ingredients, and recommended use(s). The safety and efficacy of NHPs and their health claims must be supported by proper evidence so consumers and Health Canada know that the products are indeed safe and effective. Evidence may include clinical trial data or references to published studies, journals, pharmacopoeias, and traditional resources.
Once Health Canada has assessed a product and decided that it is safe, effective, and of high quality, it issues a product license along with an eight-digit Natural Product Number (NPN) or Homeopathic Medicine Number (DIN-HM). This number lets consumers know that a product has been reviewed and approved by Health Canada and determined to be safe, free of toxicity, that it contains what it claims to contain, and that it will remain available as a natural product in the years to come.
BioSuperfood has been continually certified by Health Canada to be manufactured according to Health Canada’s food safety quality standards for NHPs, which meet the requirements of FDA’s Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) for dietary supplements. Additionally, each of the three BioSuperfood formulas for human consumption has been awarded an individual NPN. Few, if any, other algae products have ever been subject to such a stringent level of inspection and scrutiny.
