Algae play a unique and pivotal role in life on earth. The foundation of the food chain, they are responsible for 70 percent of our earth’s oxygen. And from the smallest microalgae to giant seaweeds, algae are an absolute treasure trove of nutrients—rich in protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, chlorophyll, and the broadest spectrum of phytonutrients and nutritive pigments of any food on earth.
New Earth products contain an enormous spectrum of these ancient marvels, from nutrient-packed pure freshwater microalgae to a premium selection the most powerful ocean algae.
You may have heard fish and seafood referred to sometimes as “brain food,” and with good reason. Our brains and nerve cells are composed primarily of a type of fats called essentially fatty acids (EFAs), which we cannot manufacture ourselves but must get from food, and some types of seafood are an especially rich source. In fact, some scientists believe we humans first developed our larger brain size and capacity for advanced thought while living in coastal regions, with their abundance of Omega-3 and Omega-6 EFAs in seafood.
A growing body of evidence has linked diets high in these fatty acids to more stable moods and less incidence of depression. And fish oil has become a booming dietary supplement industry for its purported benefits to mood and cardiovascular health.*
But here’s a question to think about: did you ever wonder where fish get their EFAs?
THAT’S RIGHT. FROM ALGAE.
A RAINBOW OF NUTRIENTS
Algae were the first organism to capture sunlight, through the miraculous process of photosynthesis, and fold its energy into the form of edible compounds. When we eat these remarkable foods, our metabolism unwraps the molecular ribbons and releases that trapped sunlight to its original radiance—setting sunshine free inside our cells.
As captured and stored in food cells, sunlight’s full spectrum of colors is represented chemically by a class of compounds called phytochemicals, which are responsible for the vibrant colors, smells, and tastes in our foods—the deep purple of blueberries, rich smell of garlic, or stimulating taste of turmeric. There’s been a lot of study on phytonutrients lately, such as carotenoids, phycocyanin, flavonoids, resveratrol, lycopene, catechins, and lignans, because they also represent a broad range of beneficial properties.
THE FRESHWATER AND OCEAN ALGAE IN NEW EARTH PRODUCTS BRING YOU A RICH ARRAY OF NATURAL PIGMENTS—NATURE’S WAY OF ADDING COLOR AND POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT NUTRITION TO YOUR LIFE.
Tucked away amid the old-growth forests of southern Oregon, fed by the pure waters of Crater Lake and pristine mountain springs, nourished by the exceptionally rich mineral content of the area’s volcanic soil, the Klamath Basin is home to a unique ecosytem that has produced one of nature’s ultimate nutritional miracles: THE ONLY PURE, EDIBLE, ABUNDANT, SUSTAINABLE WILD BLUE-GREEN ALGAE IN THE WORLD.
New Earth’s Wild Bluegreen Algae contains:
- all 20 amino acids, providing a complete source of protein in an amino acid profile nearly identical to human breast milk
- essential fatty acids, including Omega-3 and Omega-6
- the mental energy activator phenylethylamine (PEA)
- powerful antioxidants, such as chlorophyll, superoxide dismutase, glutathione, and phycocyanin
- dozens of essential vitamins (including B12), minerals, and trace elements
- an ideal balance of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, complex sugars, and fiber.
But even this list of nutrients doesn’t tell the whole story. New Earth’s Wild Bluegreen Algae is adaptogenic, meaning that it tends to support the body’s ability to resist stress and normalize itself. TO BRING THINGS INTO BALANCE, REGARDLESS OF WHERE YOU’RE STARTING FROM.*
