The Power of a Single Ingredient: Organic Wild Microalgae®

The power of edible blue-green algae has taken the world by storm in recent years. From spirulina-infused drinks to chlorella supplements, it’s no longer a secret that specific strains of blue-green microalgae are nutrient-dense, health-promoting foods. However, we’d be willing to bet you haven’t heard about the single strain of microalgae that far surpasses both spirulina and chlorella—Organic Wild Microalgae®

What is Organic Wild Microalgae?

Scientifically known as Aphanizomenon flos aquae (AFA), Organic Wild Microalgae is a rare strain of edible blue-green algae that is wild-crafted by New Earth from the waters of Upper Klamath Lake. It is the only edible freshwater microalgae in the world that grows abundantly in the wild, and it’s truly the “crème de la crème” of all microalgae. 

As one of the most ancient superfoods on Earth, Organic Wild Microalgae has been consumed as a dietary supplement for decades. Throughout the years, this amazing strain of algae has been thoroughly researched to better understand and document the profound benefits it can have on both physical and mental health. There are thousands of personal testimonies of the benefits experienced when consuming AFA, and there are also multiple scientific research articles to further confirm these positive results.

The Nutrient Profile of Organic Wild Microalgae

What makes Organic Wild Microalgae so powerful? It’s the fact that it possesses one of the most impressive nutritional profiles we’ve ever seen. This ancient superfood has a unique combination of a wide variety of essential nutrients and beneficial compounds in one source.


For starters, AFA is classified as a species of cyanobacteria (aka blue-green algae) because it contains 2 key pigments: chlorophyll and phycocyanin. 


Chlorophyll is the green pigment in plants that is essential for the process of photosynthesis, whereby radiant energy from the sun is converted into chemical energy for the life processes of the plant. Without chlorophyll, plants would die. With that being said, plants aren’t the only organisms that can benefit from this green pigment. Chlorophyll is also an excellent source of antioxidants, substances that fight damaging free-radicals, and has many beneficial nutritional properties for humans. Organic Wild Microalgae possesses an impressively high content of chlorophyll.

Phycocyanin (PC)

This blue pigment is responsible for the intense color of our microalgae. In fact, Organic Wild Microalgae is approximately 15% phycocyanin by dry weight! The word “phycocyanin” comes from the Greek words “phyco” meaning algae, and “kyanos” meaning “blue-green.” Phycocyanin is classified as a phycobilirubin—a light-harvesting protein that contributes to photosynthesis. While it helps give the algae its color, this blue pigment also possesses a variety of beneficial health properties, with the most important property being that it acts as an antioxidant to help neutralize the damaging effects of free radicals, unstable molecules that can damage our cells. 

Additional Pigments

Chlorophyll and phycocyanin are not the only important pigments possessed by Organic Wild Microalgae. This superfood also contains a significant amount of beta-carotene, an orange pigment that is the precursor to vitamin A as well as a powerful antioxidant. Once digested, the human body converts beta-carotene to vitamin A. 

As if that’s not enough, AFA contains another carotenoid pigment called canthaxanthin. This red-orange pigment, which has similar antioxidant effects as beta-carotene and other carotenoids. 

Additional Nutrients in AFA

In addition to powerful phytopigments, Organic Wild Microalgae also boasts a long list of beneficial compounds and vital nutrients, including: 


Organic Wild Microalgae also contains a compound known as phenylethylamine (PEA), which is a “feel good” chemical compound. PEA is a naturally occurring alkaloid chemical compound made from the amino acid phenylalanine and is linked to energy, mood, and focus. PEA exists naturally in the human central nervous system and is responsible for the emotional experience associated with pleasure and mental awareness. It supports mental energy, mental clarity, concentration, and attention, and is a known natural mood enhancer.

Amino Acids

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. There are 20 amino acids that are essential to human health, and AFA contains all of them! Each amino acid offers a variety of health benefits, but together they provide vital fuel and energy, build and maintain neuropeptides, and help regulate emotions and moods. Organic Wild Microalgae’s amino acid profile closely matches the ideal profile set forth by the World Health Organization

Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs)

AFA also supplies essential fatty acids in an all-natural form. Approximately 45% of the lipids (fats) within this microalgae are essential fatty acids, which are required for the normal growth and repair of the skin, blood vessels, and nerve tissues. AFA contains both LA (Linoleic acid, an Omega 6 fatty acid) and ALA (Alpha-Linoleic Acid, an Omega 3 fatty acid) in an ideal balance/ratio for the human body—there is more ALA than LA.

Vitamins and Minerals

Organic Wild Microalgae contains a variety of both vitamins and minerals that are key for optimal health. This includes 13 notable elements and trace elements, which are minerals that are used by the human body in trace amounts to facilitate various bodily functions. Additionally, AFA contains 13 different vitamins, including vitamin K and several B complex vitamins.


Last, but certainly not least, Organic Wild Microalgae contains a large variety of components that have antioxidant effects, such as the pigments previously mentioned. In addition, other components in AFA, such as L-cystine, glycine, and L-glutamate are used by the liver to form glutathione, one of the most powerful antioxidants. Superoxide dismutase (SOD, a family of enzymes), also contributes to antioxidant activity and is found in AFA. 

The Benefits of AFA

With such a rich nutrient profile, Organic Wild Microalgae is considered by experts to have superior characteristics and is one of Earth’s most basic yet most potent sustainable foods. It is also the only wild-crafted microalgae available on the market today, harvested directly from Upper Klamath Lake in Klamath Falls, Oregon, where it naturally grows in abundance. 

Throughout the years, AFA has been thoroughly researched via studies that used various forms of the algae (including both capsules and extracts) and had participants ranging from children to animals. The variety included in study design, format, and participants has helped to cover a large spectrum and reveals the full range of benefits that this ancient superfood offers. The benefits documented in the research range from improved cognitive health to immune support, and everything in between.
