What is This Superfood Blue Green Algae

One of the most nutrient rich foods available on our planet, Blue Green Algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae meaning invisible water flower) is a deeply nourishing superfood, power packed with protein in a very high bio available form that is easily absorbed in our bodies (80% as compared to 20% of meat protein). It is also one of the world's most concentrated sources of chlorophyll, an extremely valuable phytonutrient.
Algae are a class by themselves and exhibit the characteristics of both plants and animals. They have been consumed in one form or another for thousands of years.
Blue-Green Algae have the broadest range of phyto-nutrients of any known algae, including rare trace elements, biologically active enzymes, amino acids, essential fatty acids, B12, chlorophyll, Phenyl ethylamine (PEA), glycol-proteins, complex sugars, vitamins and minerals which can be easily absorbed in our body due to its soft cell wall.
The chlorophyll in the algae helps detoxify the body and maintain a healthy immune system. Blue Green Algae helps to remove heavy metals and other environmental pollutants from our bodies.
It also contains all eight essential amino acids plus the "semi-essential" amino acids in such a manner that the human body absorbs and metabolizes this super-food at nearly 100% rate!
Even more physiological benefits of the Blue-Green Algae come from the different types of sugars that it creates. These are unique types of polysaccharides necessary for biochemical functions including the building, repairing and replacing of damaged cell structures.
Extensive research has shown that people taking Blue-Green Algae have reported an overall increase in mental alertness, mental stamina, short and long term memory, problem solving, creativity, dream recall and a greater sense of well being. The greatest benefit of this food is not only its nutrient constitution, but its total synergistic effect on the mind and the nervous system including the pituitary, pineal, and hypothalamus.
Because our brain cells use neuropeptides to communicate with each other, and Blue-Green Algae contains the basic building blocks and neuropeptide precursors necessary to create these potent brain chemistries, it contributes to the brain's ability to process information and to achieve a feeling of well-being.
It also contains about 3% nucleic acids... more than any other food! Nucleic acids are responsible for growth, repair and regeneration of cells and also enhance immunity.
The good news about Blue-Green Algae does not end here. It is also full of vitamins, especially rich in B vitamins and the richest vegetable source of both B-12 and beta-carotene. According to the 1991 critical review in "Food and Science and Nutrition" Gram for Gram Blue-Green Algae has 40 times the beta-carotene of carrots!
With a precious gift like this from Mother Earth, one does not need to think twice!
This product is StemEnhance except it is in a 5 to 1 concentrate and Dr. Christian Drapeau has identified the two compounds which help to push Stem cells out of the Bone marrow and into the blood stream the other compound pushes the stem cells from the blood stream into the tissue of the organs.

Supplements Stem Cells and StemEnhance

The majority of health supplements we take give nutrients to our existing cells but they do not have the capacity to create new ones. Stem Enhance can help to release millions of stem cells from bone marrow into the bloodstream.
One of the reasons we age so rapidly when we hit our mid thirties is the reduction in the release of stem cells into the blood stream, something we already carry in our bone marrow. Stem Enhance has been shown to release the missing stem cells and give us a healthier life.
Stem cells are so important; they are the basis of life. When a sperm fertilizes the egg, the first cell created is a stem cell. A stem cell can change into other cell tissue types. This allows the stem cell to become different sets of cells as we need them to support our vital organs.
Stems cells have the powers to rebuild weakened cells and areas of the body.
ASC's, is a process of removing the stem cells from someone's bone marrow and re-injecting these same cells into an area undergoing treatment. This usually happens before a cancer patient undergoes treatment. The healthier cells from the bone marrow are removed and stored, and re-inserted after the radiation treatment is over with.
Stem Enhance is unique, placing researchers with a new category to label, "stem cell enhancers".
Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), is the essential nutrient in StemEnhance which releases thousands, if not millions of adult stem cells. AFA is an edible algae considered to be one of the most nutritious foods known to us. This blue-alga has all the nutrients to be what we need to build our cells on.
Stem Enhance increases the cells ability to get to the damaged areas that need them most. StemEnhance is a high quality mix of two compounds which are extracted from AFA. This process is considered to extremely safe.
The first compound, which contains L-Selectin ligand, blocks the receptors on your stem cells that keep them sealed into your bone marrow allowing them to circulate.
The second compound which is called Migratose, is polysaccharide-rich and can assist in the migration of stem cells from the blood and carried to all our essential organs.
The body knows what it needs as do these master cells. People who have difficulty getting around due to joint pain are regaining their ability to walk as cartilage is being repaired.
Stem Enhance can repair the liver, digestive system, the heart, and our skin. Stem Enhance also supports brain function concentrating on improving the clarity of things, focus and our general mood.
When Stem Enhance is used as a daily supplement over time, the stimulation of billions of additional stem cells in the bloodstream could be one of the safest and most efficient methods for maintaining optimal health that science has yet discovered.
The benefit of healthy stem cell support includes enhancing optimal wellness and can fight effects of aging. Healthy stem cells can help you feel stronger and more vigorous as you advance into retirement years.
Let's face it, people today regardless of their age want to enjoy good health, fell and look better, and be able to do more play and hard work without tiring out to fast. Stem Enhance is the all natural supplement that helps support the natural release of adult stem cells.

Differences Embryonic Versus Adult Stem Cells

You’ve probably heard in the news about the controversy of embryonic stem cells. Indeed, stem cells are found in human embryos, but they are also found in adult tissue. Adult stem cells are most abundantly found in bone marrow.
Stem cell enhancers are one of the most recent breakthroughs in natural health care.
What is it and how can it help you maintain great health?
First let’s talk about stem cells. Stem cells can be thought of as “master” cells.
You’ve probably heard in the news about the controversy of embryonic stem cells. Indeed, stem cells are found in human embryos, but they are also found in adult tissue. Adult stem cells are most abundantly found in bone marrow.
What they do is to circulate and function to replace dysfunctional cells, thus fulfilling the natural process of maintaining optimal health.
In other words, a stem cell is a cell that has the ability to duplicate itself endlessly and to become cells of virtually any organ and tissue of the body.
Embryonic stem cells are cells extracted from the very early embryo, which has an exceptional ability to duplicate in a test tube, and to become cells of almost any tissue. Adult stem cells are cells found in an organism after birth. Until very recently, it was believed that adult stem cells could only become blood cells, bone and connective tissue. But recent developments over the past 5 years have revealed that adult stem cells have capabilities similar to embryonic stem cells.
So while there is controversy about the use of embryonic stem cells, recent advances in stem cell research were listed as one of the most significant health-related stories in the past 25 years by CNN, second only to the complete mapping of the human genome.
I’ve studied this topic for some time. I’m always looking for ways to maintain or improve my health, and I have a great interest in helping other people to do the same for themselves.
Thus I’m interested in what science and modern medicine have to offer us.
The benefits of stem cell enhancers are considerable.
Basically, stem cell enhancers support the release of adult stem cells from bone marrow into circulation. They also support stem cell functions in the body.
Consider that as you age, the number and quality of stem cells that circulate in your body gradually decrease, leaving your body more susceptible to injury and other age-related health challenges. Just as antioxidants are important to protect your cells from “free radical” damage, stem cell enhancers are equally important to support your stem cells in maintaining proper organ and tissue functioning in your body.
So, a new theory, known as the Stem Cell Theory of Renewal proposes that stem cells are naturally released by the bone marrow and travel via the bloodstream toward tissues to promote the body’s natural process of renewal. When an organ is subjected to a process that requires renewal, such as the natural aging process, this organ releases compounds that trigger the release of stem cells from the bone marrow.
The organ also releases compounds that attract stem cells to this organ. The released stem cells then follow the concentration gradient of these compounds and leave the blood circulation to migrate to the organ where they proliferate and differentiate into cells of this organ, supporting the natural process of renewal.
If for some reason the stem cells released from the bone marrow do not reach a tissue, they simply home back to the bone marrow after some time. So there are no side effects.
Recent studies suggest that the number of circulating stem cells is a key factor; the higher the number of circulating stem cells the greater the ability of the body to heal itself.
I’m pretty well sold on the fact that stem cell enhancers, using stem cells from adult bone marrow, are the newest and perhaps brightest promise we have for helping us keep or regain optimum health.
