Blue Green Algae - A Brief Review of the Latest Research
by Kieron Mcfadden
contributes to heart disease and cancer. The excess homocysteine prompts the body
to protect the arteries by building up a lining of cholesterol.
A study at the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal as long ago as 1998 suggested that
eating Blue-Green Algae for a period of three months can help reduce cholesterol. To
back this up, another study conducted recently at the Massachusetts General
Hospital revealed that feeding Blue-Green Algae to rodents significantly decreased
blood cholesterol levels.
The same study also found that eating this particular algae triggered the migration of
40% of the circulating Natural Killer (NK) cells from blood to tissue within 2 hours of
NK cells play an important role in the immune system. They are mainly responsible
for finding and removing so-called "sick cells" that have become corrupted either due
to a viral infection or cancerous disfiguration.
Other substances, such as green tea, are also known to enhance the activity of NK
cells but until the above mentioned discovery on Blue-Green Algae, no dietary
substance was known to prompt NK cells into this natural "house-keeping" action of
migrating into the tissues to seek out and destroy "sick cells."
The wisdom of maintaining a diet that includes both Wild Blue-Green Algae and green
tea, and this author's reasons for recommending it, should now be evident.
The study by the Royal Victoria Hospital included 50 healthy participants and results
suggested that Blue-Green Algae can also help stimulate the production of red blood
cells, probably due to its high content of vitamin B12.
Another study, performed in collaboration with the University of New Mexico,
suggests that eating Blue-Green Algae boosts the brain. It finding is supported by the
many reports - including that of the author of this article! - of increased mental
alertness and concentration that follow from regular consumption of this Algae.
Finally, recently released preliminary data from Boston University suggests that
regularly eating Blue-Green Algae may reverse the symptoms of essential fatty acid
deficiency, specifically that of omega-3.
Essential fatty acids cannot be made by the body and need to enter the body via
what we eat. They play a crucial role in the proper working of the immune system
and their deficiency has been associated with cardiovascular disease, depression,
some cancers, arthritis and skin problems.
Therefore, before you consume their poisons and damage your mental and physical
health still further, those of you undergoing persuasions from the psycho-pharmacy
racket to consume psychiatric chemicals so as to "manage" your "mental illness"
should recognize that right here we have nutritional remedies that are safer and of
infinitely greater long term benefit to you as a complete organism.
"Chuck the drugs and eat your grub" is the motto - as just this second coined by
yours truly. For brain function and mood - mental health - as well as purely physical
health, nutrition is a safe, more workable and, as is becoming increasingly evident,
vital therapy that renders much of the psycho-pharmacy obsolete.
All this newly released data explains the many impressive benefits reported by people
eating Blue-Green Algae on a regular basis. Having attracted the attention or
researchers, ongoing studies are being done so as to fully understand the effects on
the human body of eating Blue-Green Algae.
We now know that it may increase red blood cell production, reduce cholesterol,
boost brain function and resolve essential fatty acid deficiency, not to mention
strengthening your immune system.
The day is coming when Blue-Green Algae, hopefully alongside green tea as the
beverage of choice, will be a routine supplement, much as Vitamin C so rightly is
today, for people who want to be drug free and mentally and physically healthy.
