So we’ve all heard of the green mass that forms on rocks and gives off a slimy feel commonly referred to as algae. But, when it became known as one ingredient that possessed the power to provide physical and mental energy, absorb toxins, strengthen the immune system, prevent colds, stop fatigue or hunger, build muscle, aid in weight loss, and strangely prevent hangovers, all for under 1 calorie per tab—it grabbed everyone’s attention!

Algae provides three times more protein than steak, fifty times more iron than spinach, four times more chlorophyll than wheat grass, most B vitamins, all of the electrolytes, and forty other nutrients. It also has 18 of the 22 amino acids, including all eight essential amino acids that the body cannot make itself—making it the most nutritionally dense food in the world!

Recommended Serving: 12-30 tabs per day
