Algae Concentrate (Brain Feed)

100% Pure Wild Crafted Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae (AFA), Certified Organic Algae Concentrate

Brain Feed is a highly concentrated form micro algae designed to powerfully target the brain chemistry and modulate the immune system. It is unique because of it’s abundance of Phenylethylamine (PEA). PEA is known as the “love molecule” and is naturally produced in the brain in times of joy. Research has shown brain phenylethylamine is a neuromodulator that promotes energy and elevates mood.

PEA is found to be deficient in people with clinical depression.  It is said to be the chemical responsible for “runners high” in runners and studies show it provides rapid improvement in cognitive function and visual acuity in vivo. It is over 60% protein by weight and contains the highest concentrations of vitamin B12 found anywhere in nature.

SUGGESTED USE:

Blue Green Algae mixes easily in water, protein shakes, superfood smoothies or fresh-squeezed juices to add a naturally complete superfood boost. It is amazing sprinkled on popcorn and salads. Add it to your raw chocolate, too. Try adding it to coconut water for refreshing and nourishing hydration and to energize your brain.
