Research Spotlight on Blue Green Algae!
This third party research will show you why eating Blue Green Algae can affect your health positively. "Within two hours after eating 1.5 grams of Blue Green Algae, Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), an average of 40% of the blood Natural Killer cells (one billion) left the bloodstream and migrated into the tissues. NK cells have homing molecules on their surfaces to help detect infected cells and they use large molecules called adhesion molecules which allow them to crawl out of the blood, through the capillary wall, into the tissues. They further discovered that in some cases the NK cells that remained in the bloodstream had two to three times as many adhesion molecules as they did before the Aphanizomenon flos-aquae was eaten. After a few hours, the NK cells had returned to the bloodstream. Eating Aphanizomenon flos-aquae triggers the movement of 40% of the circulating NK cells from the blood to the tissues where their main function is to perform immune surveillance and eliminate cancerous and virally infected cells. Further research may prove that eating a small amount of AFA every day could assist in the prevention of cancer and viral infections. No other substance is known to trigger such a movement of NK cells in the body." (Independent research from the team of research scientists at the Royal Victoria Hospital, led by Dr. Gitte S. Jensen, Manoukian et al., 1998)
How do killer cells work?
NK cells have the ability to recognize cells that are cancerous or have been infected by a virus. The strategy used by NK cells is a drastic one; they directly approach cancerous or virally infected cells and release strong free radicals in their immediate environment. The free radicals create a hole in the cell, and the cell then dies. The dead cell is later eaten by another kind of immune cell, the macrophages, the scavengers of the body.
What is your immune system?
It is a group of tissues and organs whose role is to protect our bodies against substances or organisms that could potentially cause a disease. The entire immune system is quite complex. It is composed of many organs and tissues (bone marrow, spleen, lymph nodes, and thymus gland...) that produce different kinds of cells having specific immune functions, as well as chemicals that modulate these various immune functions. One of these types of cells is called NK cells. They are a subset of T-cells. They are also called cytotoxic T-cells, meaning "toxic to other cells." One of their main functions in the body is to search for cancerous and virally infected cells and kill them. A healthy immune system functioning at peak performance can halt and even help reverse disease.
Research has shown that eating (A FA) Aphanizomenon flos-aquae harvested from Klamath Lake provides people with a high protein food, complemented with vitamins, essential amino acids, chlorophyll, and naturally chelated minerals. It also contains large amounts of B-12, Omega 3 fatty acids , which protect against heart disease and helps to lower triglycerides (Passwater and Solomon, 1998)
Recent studies have shown that a shortage of B-complex vitamins, B-12 and folic acid, abundant in Aphanizomenon flos-aqua (Blue Green Algae), can result in a build up of homocysteine, a compound that contributes to heart disease and cancer (Passwater and Solomon, 1998)
A double-blind placebo controlled study conducted at the Royal Victoria Hospital, affiliated with McGill Univ. in Montreal show that eating AFA algae may help to stimulate an increased production of red blood cells, possibly due to its high content of vitamin B-12. The same study also suggested that eating AFA for three months may contribute to reducing cholesterol.
There are many other studies available and several are in progress at this time. If you would like further information on some of the research findings, contact my office.
