Let's start the week off right with an incredibly nutrient dense superfood we discovered at one of our favorite spots, Punchbowl. Now, we've been down the algae path before with supplements like Spirulina. And while that pond-y kinda flavor can be a little tough to shake, the benefits of this particular blue-green algae (Aphanizomanon flos-aquae or AFA for short) have certainly shifted our priorities (there's very little fresh mango can't fix, right?).
Now, E3Live is the only company that offers AFA in a fresh, frozen form and this is definitely the way you want to add it to your diet. Blue-green algae was the first organism on Earth to photosynthesize, the oldest variety of the some 30,000 algae species on the planet. AFA is also the most nutrient dense (ounce for ounce) whole food ever created by nature. Not to mention NASA has fed E3Live brand blue-green algae to their astronauts for over fifty years!
So, if space explorers are incorporating this stuff in their zero gravity smoothies, we are definitely down to give it a go here on the ground. Beyond the high concentration of omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, vitamins, and protein, E3Live improves immune cell migration without over taxing and inflaming the body. It is also a rich source of vitamin B which converts glucose in the body to physical and mental fuel. With this stuff you can definitely kick the caffeine away, woohoo!
