AFA Benefits

We now know why E3AFA™ is so effective - and for more than just raising energy levels and increasing mental clarity - below you will find an excerpt from the book "Primordial Food" authored by Christian Drapeau, MSc.

Mr. Drapeau, a foremost scientist in the study of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, holds a Masters of Science degree in Neurology and Neurosurgery from the Montreal Neurological Institute, an affiliate of McGill University, Montreal, Canada, and has been extensively involved in the study of nutrition, naturopathy and various natural therapies.
Most significantly, Mr. Drapeau collaborated with many scientists affiliated with Harvard University, McGill University, the University of Illinois, Oregon State University, the University of New Mexico and the University of Mississippi in the study of the effects of blue-green algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae) on human health. Mr. Drapeau continues his involvement in the clinical study of AFA:

"The health benefits of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) have been reported for more than two decades, yet it is only recently that science has revealed the mechanisms by which AFA acts on the body, and the astonishing health benefits of AFA. AFA contains a wide variety of phytonutrients that promote health, such as chlorophyll, carotenoids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. AFA contains unique molecules that modulate various aspects of human health such as:

  • Phenylethylamine (PEA) known as the "molecule of love." Beside enhancing concentration and attention, PEA is a natural mood elevator and anti-depressant.
  • Phycocyanin, the blue pigment in AFA, which is a natural selective COX-2 inhibitor with strong anti-inflammatory properties.
  • A polysaccharide that stimulates the migration of immune cells in the body; the only natural compound known to stimulate immune cell migration.
  • But the most extraordinary discovery is the ability of AFA to stimulate stem cell release and migration, making AFA the first natural compound known to stimulate the natural innate phenomenon of healing, regeneration and repair in the human body."

E3AFA™ - Optimal Health for Hair, Skin & Nails
Imagine being complimented for the healthy glow of your skin, hair and nails! Statistics show that nearly 183 million Americans are deficient in the vitamins and minerals vital to beautiful skin, hair and nails. The nutrients present in E3AFA™ will make your hair, nails and skin beautiful and healthy. It makes sense that if the body needs vitamins and minerals to maintain health, your hair and nails need them also. After all, hair and nails are a part of your body. Like your skin, they express your overall health. E3AFA™ stimulates hair and nail growth while providing energy and the natural antioxidants that give your skin a younger and more supple look.
