Cyanobacteria are aquatic and photosynthetic (they live in the water, and can manufacture their own food). Because they are bacteria, they are quite small and usually unicellular, often growing in colonies large enough to be visable. They are the oldest known fossils, more than 3.5 billion years old and are one of the largest and most important groups of bacteria on earth.
Many Proterozoic oil deposits are attributed to the activity of cyanobacteria. The chloroplast with which plants make food for themselves is actually a cyanobacterium living within the plant's cells. Sometime in the late Proterozoic, or in the early Cambrian, cyanobacteria began to take up residence within certain eukaryote cells, making food for the eukaryote host in return for a home. This event is known as endosymbiosis, and is also the origin of the eukaryotic mitochondrion. Most commonly known is Spirulina, another algae.
Because they are photosynthetic and aquatic, cyanobacteria are often called "blue-green algae".
Algae are aquatic plants which occur in both freshwater and marine environments. They are classified broadly according to their photosynthetic pigments (eg green, red, brown, blue-green). Freshwater algae are generally microscopic and are usually kept in check by the feeding of higher organisms.
Blue-green algae has been promoted to treat or cure a host of ailments, including asthma, allergies, anxiety, depression, fatigue, hypoglycemia, digestive problems, and attention deficit disorder, and even help with weight loss, improve memory and mental ability, “detoxify” the body, and boost the immune system.
Blue-green algae contain small amounts of protein, vitamins (including C, E, and folate), beta carotene, and some minerals. But unless you eat huge amounts of algae, they are a negligible source of nutrients. Like green plants, they are rich in chlorophyll which is useless to the human body.
The two main blue-green types are Spirulina and Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA). AFA is chiefly harvested from Upper Klamath Lake in southern Oregon and then freeze-dried and sold in capsules and other forms. A big concern with blue-green algae, especially AFA harvested from natural lakes, is that they are easily contaminated with toxic substances, notably microcystins and heavy metals. At least 10 genera of fresh water blue-green algae are known to have toxic strains, of which the most common are; Microcystis (or Anacystis), Anabaena, Aphanizomenon and Oscillatoria. The toxins fall into 3 groups distinguished by their chemical and biological properties. These are neurotoxins, hepatotoxins (damaging to the liver) and contact irritants.
Many people have asked about the differences between spirulina and wild blue-green algae harvested from lakes. Spirulina is one particular kind of blue-green algae with a centuries long history of safe human consumption. It is well known to be safe and nutritious. Hundreds of published scientific studies over the past thirty years have documented no toxicity.
Spirulina can be cultivated in a monoculture, uncontaminated by other cyanobacteria. Farms can be specially designed and operated to produce spirulina under controlled conditions that do not allow the growth of other contaminant cyanobacteria as in lakes and waterways.
40 quality control tests assure spirulina meets all international food safety and quality standards. It is already known to be safe and nutritious, and the technology and quality control at an advanced farm assures purity and safety.

Blue Green Algae, with Vitamin E & Beta Carotene, was found to inhibit the growth of tumors and help shrink those that have already formed.
RESEARCH & STUDIES:There are numerous studies available that demonstrate the benefits of vitamins, minerals, protein, amino acids, enzymes and beta carotene.
DOSES & DIRECTIONS:Adults, as a dietary supplement, 3-4 capsules daily, or as directed by health care professional. For best results take on an empty stomach.
INGREDIENTS:Each Capsule Contains: 500 MGS. Blue Green Algae obtained from the upper Klamath Lake in Oregon. Minerals - This natural food contains trace amounts of virtually every mineral in chelated form. This is the way we are supposed to receive these elements, many nutrients are better assimilated in small amounts rather than megadoses. Minerals are the sparks that enable our vitamins to work effectively.
Vitamins - Vitamins assist the body to transform food into energy. Klamath Blue Green Algae contains a complete balance of vitamins, except for D & K, and is a remarkable source of vitamin B-12.
Chlorophyll - An excellent blood detoxifier,
Proteins & Amino Acids - Proteins are made up of amino acids, the basic building blocks of the healthy body. Klamath Blue Green Algae contains more protein by weight than nearly any other organism, plant or animal, and it is 95% assimilable. What is truly unique about this Algae is that its amino acid profile is almost identical to that found in healthy human cells.
ENZYMES - It has over 2,000 enzymes, enhancing the actions of all the vitamins and minerals as well as the digestive process.
Beta Carotene - One of the highest known sources of beta carotene. A powerful free radical fighter, removing these highly unstable molecules from your system before they can attack healthy cells.
Gamma Linoleic Acid - a vital, essential, fatty acid, which helps prevent hardening of the arteries, PMS, high blood pressure, and must be supplied through the diet.
Klamath Blue Green Algae is an especially powerful anti-oxidant when combined with Co Enzyme Q10.
Contains no artificial preservatives, coloring, flavors, sugar, starch, wheat or yeast.
