What is E3AFA?
Blue-green algae (Aphanizomanon flos-aquae, or AFA) is the very first protein and most ancient food on our planet! At the bottom of the food chain, blue-green algae is literally the most nutrient-rich food (ounce for ounce) ever created by nature. This simple organism is complete nutrition in its most basic form. Blue-green algae, especially from Klamath Lake (one of the few remaining unpolluted alkaline lakes on earth!), is a nutrient-dense whole food source that contains protein (64% protein compared to just 22% protein found in animal protein like steak!), over 65 vitamins and minerals, essential fatty acids, and a huge dose of chlorophyll (3-5 times MORE than wheatgrass!) - all the nutrients your body needs – in a form that’s more readily bioavailable to us.
Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA - means invisible flower of the water) is a fresh water nutritional plant referred to as cyanophyta. Cyanophyta are living water plants that grow in nearly all droplets of sunlit water and in every gram of soil, on the bark of trees and the surfaces of rocks. It is estimated that there are as many as 50,000 species, including various seaweeds and plankton. Collectively, cyanophyta are responsible for 90% of the Earth's oxygen and 80% of its food supply. AFA is a very special form of cyanophyta. All foods reflect the environment in which they are grown. The beautiful, unpolluted Upper Klamath Lake-one of the few remaining alkaline lakes on the planet holds the key to its remarkable potency.
This lake has an astonishingly high mineral concentration due to a massive volcanic eruption that occurred in the vicinity over 7,000 years ago, covering the area with millions of tons of mineral ash. Seventeen streams and rivers deposit into the 140 square mile lake an annual average of 50,000 tons of the mineral-rich silt from the surrounding 4000 square mile volcanic basin, making Upper Klamath Lake one of the richest nutrient traps in the world.
Much has been learned about this amazing food since it became available as a food source over 20 years ago. E3Live
is the only AFA that is live, liquid and delivered to you closest to its natural state. E3Live is selectively gathered by expert harvesters, and collected from only the deepest, most pristine waters of Upper Klamath Lake only at peak times of optimal growth. The harvesting is quickly followed by rapid chilling of the AFA to 34 to 37 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, our E3AFA is Further purified by careful centrifugation, leaving a product chilled and scrupulously clean. E3Live is handled more expeditiously from harvest to freezer than any competitive product. Our quality control parameters, coupled with our proprietary final processing, yields the Lake's most potent source of AFA.
Because people report AFA helps such a wide range of physical and mental symptoms, it's easy to fall into a "magic bullet" mentality associated with pharmaceutical drugs. AFA doesn't work that way. Aphanizomenon flos-aquae is an extraordinary food, not a drug or synthesized vitamin. Artificial drugs are synthesized in the laboratory to produce specific effects on targeted cells, organs, or body functions. Though some drugs save lives, unfortunately, some drugs also create unwanted side-effects. In contrast, Nature's innate wisdom works through AFA's full spectrum of over 64 perfectly balanced, naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, amino acids (protein) and essential fatty acids. AFA helps restore overall biological balance and nourishes the body at the cellular level. AFA is 97% absorbable by the body. Without any toxicity or side-effects, this is how AFA can have so many beneficial nutritional and energetic effects throughout the body. There's only one ingredient in E3AFA, and that's 100% Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA ), an edible freshwater plant.
Balanced Omega 3 & 6 Essential Fatty Acids 11 Vitamins: Biotin, Folic Acid, Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, D, and E All essential amino acids (protein): Histidine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Lysine, Methionine, Phenylalanine, Threonine, Tryptophan, Tyrosin and Valine 8 Non-essential amino acids: Alanine, Arginine, Aspartic Acid, Cystine, Glutamic Acid, Glycine, Proline and Serine and an abundance of trace minerals (65):
Our bodies desperately need these trace minerals to function properly, from sleeping to weight loss. E3AFA contains the top supplements that vegans need (and are often deficient in) including zinc, calcium, iron, Vitamix B12 and Vitamin A. There is no doubt, this is the “food” of the future, the same way it is the food of the past.
