We’re frequently asked if we have a breakdown of how many international units (IUs) or what percentage of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of a particular nutrient is contained in BioSuperfood. The answer is no.
In the past, Dr. Michael Kiriac (the inventor of BioSuperfood) attempted to provide information that gave IU units or RDA equivalents of the nutrients in BioSuperfood. However, he eventually decided to cease sharing that information because he was unsatisfied in his attempts to provide some kind of equivalent nutritional value between the nutrients in BioSuperfood and individual, isolated supplements. This is because the concept behind consuming (note that word) BioSuperfood is vastly different than that of supplementing (note that word, too) with individual, isolated supplements.
Although sold as a supplement, BioSuperfood is in reality much more. It’s a concentrated, synergistic blend of algae (whole foods in themselves) that the body absorbs and uses very differently than an isolated supplement. And like all natural foods, even using the best growing, harvesting, and blending technology, one can never achieve a standard delivery of nutrients, certainly not at the microscopic level. (As an aside, Dr. Kiriac is a world-recognized expert in such technologies, having received awards and patents for his inventions beyond those he received for inventing BioSuperfood itself.) Said another way, asking exactly how much magnesium glycinate is in BioSuperfood would be like trying to determine exactly how much vitamin C is in a given orange or how much beta carotene is in a particular carrot.
It took more than a decade of research by Dr. Kiriac to discover and ultimately refine the completeness, balance, and synergy of BioSuperfood bio-algae concentrates. For example, BioSuperfood contains several mixed carotenoids (antioxidants) in natural, tiny amounts that are safe and balanced for maximum synergistic effect in the body. In contrast, most antioxidant supplements are separated and isolated synthetics created in a lab and are, therefore, nowhere near as effectively absorbed and used by the body. This is why whole foods and blended whole foods such as BioSuperfood are a much better and safer form of nutrients: because the nutrients exist the same way they exist in nature. When you add BioSuperfood to your diet, you’re consuming food, not supplementing a symptom. To illustrate just how differently the body absorbs and uses BioSuperfood, let’s look at the study conducted by Dr. Kiriac between 2006 and 2008 on the Lyne and Alain Forget Dairy Farm in Laval, Quebec, Canada.
BioSuperfood bio-algae concentrates were incorporated into the commercial feeds of 22 Holstein dairy cows out of a herd of 50 with the purpose of increasing productivity. At the beginning of the study, the herd was already performing above average but, for the purpose of this study, certain parameters were targeted for amelioration: milk volume, texture of the udder, somatic cell count, overall productivity, emptying of the udder, gestation period, and reduction of nervousness of the cow during milking, which may lead to greater emptying of the udder. The results of the study were monitored at regular intervals over 36 months by Valacta, an independent provincial dairy center of expertise regulated by the Quebec Dairy Industry. After the conclusion of the study, the following results were reported:
- 3,000 kg increase in milk production
- general increase of the Breed Class Average (BCA) of 20% for milk, 9.3% in fat, and 8.6% in protein
Also observed were the following results compared to the provincial averages:
- reduction of the gestation interval from 426 to of 384 days
- milk production increase from 8,622 kg to 12,186 kg per year
- fat production increase from 329 kg to 434 kg per year
- protein production increase from 278 kg to 399 kg year
Mr. Alain Forget, owner and president of the dairy farm, reported also that his herd showed signs of better health and achieved better emptying of the udder from milking due to diminished nervousness. “Because of the independently and statistically measured results obtained with our herd,” reported Forget, “we believe that [BioSuperfood] bio-algae concentrates must affect positively the brain organ hypothalamus, which is responsible for the metabolism regulation.”
How much BioSuperfood was fed to the cows to achieve these remarkable results? One gram a day! That is less than three capsules! Fed to cows! What’s more, at the same time the cows’ normal protein feed was reduced by 5,000 grams a day! These results and more prove beyond doubt the remarkable potency of BioSuperfood and demonstrate that it simply cannot be compared with single alga or any other multi-vitamin, multi-mineral, dietary supplement, or green superfood product. How much exactly of each nutrient is in BioSuperfood is not the point: it is the interaction among the nutrients in BioSuperfood that is the key.
BioSuperfood is truly in a league apart.
