Behind the abbreviation AFA lies a widely-studied form of microalgae: Aphanizomenon flos-aquae. Also known as Klamath blue-green algae, this seaweed-like plant is often described as a ‘miracle-algae’ or ‘superfood’ because of its remarkable nutrient content and multiple health virtues. In particular, researchers believe it can improve mood, condition, well-being and immunity.
The many benefits of Klamath algae are now available as a nutritional supplement in capsule form. These are produced from powdered AFA algae obtained from Klamath Lake in America, which is famous for its clean, pure water. Each capsule contains 500mg of extract, providing 2.5mg of PEA per dose. Depending on your needs and the advice of your therapist, the dosage of this supplement can vary from two to four capsules a day, to be taken on an empty stomach. Other ‘super-algae’ are also available such as spirulina, knotted wrack and chlorella.
