We’re asked a lot of questions at Peak Health Supplements about BioSuperfood bio-algae concentrates. A common one, given the many algae-based products available on today’s market, is, “How is BioSuperfood different?” Our answer? In three ways: superior nutrition, increased absorption, and guaranteed purity and quality.
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’s 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.
A remarkable example of just how nutritious BioSuperfood is comes from a study conducted on a dairy farm in Quebec, Canada. BioSuperfood was incorporated into the commercial feeds of 22 Holstein cows out of a herd of 50 with the intention of increasing productivity; no other changes in the feeds or supplementation were introduced. In 36 months, those 22 cows achieved increased milk production levels of 3,000 kg and increased protein production levels of 19 kg while being fed 5,000g less protein feed and only one gram (fewer than three capsules) of BioSuperfood a day!

Nutrient Absorption. Cellular Regeneration. Metabolic Healing.
Most people assume that our bodies absorb all nutrients efficiently and completely. Unfortunately, for the majority, most of the nutrients from their foods never get into the bloodstream because their intestinal villi are often destroyed by salt, sugar, fat, tobacco, alcohol, chemicals, medicine, pollution, and stress. What results is a degenerative downward spiral that gets increasingly worse because each new generation of villi are created more slowly. This in turn compromises the continuous generation of new cells in the heart, lungs, muscles, brain, bones, and the rest of the body, creating cells of lesser vitality.
Due to its superior nutrition, BioSuperfood actually regroups thousands of naturally occurring, balanced, and synergistic nutrients to overcome these inefficiencies and blockages in the digestive system. (Having worked for several years in the technology industry, Owen likes to call this “nutritional defragging.”) BioSuperfood therefore increases nutrient absorption, enhances cellular regeneration, reduces the load on the cleansing organs of the body, and awakens the hypothalamus or “Genius,” as BioSuperfood inventor Dr. Michael Kiriac calls the “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.
The protein in BioSuperfood has been proven to be the most assimilable ever measured (85-95% digestible). Compare this to the typical absorption rate of 20-25% of most supplements on the market. (Yes, 75-80% of most health supplements go right through the body without ever being absorbed.) Such astounding bioavailability is exactly why those Canadian dairy cows were capable of producing so much more milk while adding to their feeds fewer than three capsules of BioSuperfood a day!
Purity and Quality.
To ensure the strictest quality control and to prevent potential exposure to environmental pollutants and 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.
BioSuperfood formulas contain only the four micro-algae mentioned above and are 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. Once harvested, the algae are exported to Canada for blending, encapsulating, and bottling under strict quality assurance.
Canada requires manufacturers and distributors 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). Once assessed and determined to be safe, effective, and of high quality, Health Canada issues a product license along with a 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, and that it contains what it claims to contain.
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 the U.S. FDA’s Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) for dietary supplements. Additionally, each of the three BioSuperfood formulas for human consumption was awarded an individual NPN in 2007. (Scroll to bottom of this page.) Few, if any, other algae products have ever been subject to such a stringent level of inspection and scrutiny.
