Algae and other high-chlorophyll health supplements with their high chlorophyll content are increasingly recognized as pivotal to optimum health and wellbeing.
Algae and other high-chlorophyll health supplements are increasingly recognised as pivotal to optimum health and well being. Chlorophyll is the green pigment that is found in plants, and it is regarded as one of the best food-source internal cleansers. Green foods and in particular algae also provide a wholefood source of nutrients essential for optimum health, such as vitamins, minerals and enzymes often lacking in the diet.
It is important, however, to choose a high-quality green supplement as the process of manufacture can have an enormous effect on the nutritional integrity of the product. The high-chlorophyll supplements below have been selected for their high quality and nutritional density.
KBG Super-3™ is a synergistic blend of three of the most powerful algae: Klamath Blue Green Algae, Chlorella and Spirulina.
Edible green and blue-green algae are high-density superfoods, helping us to maintain optimum health and vitality. Whilst Klamath Blue Green Algae is recognized as one of the most nutritious, many are also drawn to Chlorella and Spirulina for their own unique properties. Normally, you can only get these superfoods separately, but now, they are available in a 1:1:1 ratio mix in the same vegetarian capsule. This unique product is called KBG Super-3™.
Wild Klamath Blue Green Algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae)
Regarded by many nutritionists as the most powerful algae type, Klamath Blue Green Algae (Aphanizomenon flos-aquae) grows wild in the mineral-rich Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon. In the water, it looks a bit like blades of grass. This beautiful lake freezes in the winter and the area is very hot in the summer, creating extreme environmental conditions which encourage this blue-green algae to produce a uniquely high and vital nutritional profile, including many powerful green pigments and carotenoids, as well as a whole host of other nutrients including B12, trace-minerals, and nucleic acids. (This algae is available as a stand-alone product from us — click here for more info.) The algae is cool dried before encapsulation to maintain nutritional integrity and to naturally concentrate and preserve its nutrients. The algae we use is a clean product without detectable levels of toxins associated with algae.
Chlorella (Chlorella pyrenoidosa)
Chlorella is a unicellular green algae which has many remarkable health benefits, and is known to help support detoxification and immunity. It is also a source of chlorella growth factor (CGF) which is considered by some to be its primary health benefit. The species we use in this product is chlorella pyrenoidosa, which is known to have a higher concentration of certain vitamins and amino acids, and also a higher concentration of CGF. KBG Super-3 chlorella is grown organically to ensure purity, and the cell wall is broken to ensure optimum absorption, and cool dried to maximize its nutritional profile.
Spirulina (Arthrospira platensis)
Spirulina is a blue-green algae like Klamath Blue Green Algae, but it is single-celled and so slightly more primative. In fact, it has probably been on the planet for over 3 billion years. Spirulina tends to be a cultivated algae because, being single-celled, it is difficult to harvest cleanly from the wild. Spirulina is one of the richest sources of carotenoids, including beta carotene, amino acids, minerals and many other nutritional components. KBG Super-3 spirulina is grown organically to ensure purity. And because, like Klamath above, it has a soft cell wall, these nutrients are readily available and assimilable. The high quality spirulina in KBG Super-3 is gently dried to maintain nutritional integrity.

Klamath Blue Green Algae® is the most nutrient-dense greenfood available for those seeking optimum health with wild wholefoods.
Scientifically called Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), this species of blue-green algae has received serious media attention: Newsweek magazine reported a few years ago that this wild wholefood from Upper Klamath Lake is one of the fastest growing items in the health food market; it has been described in the British press as the greenfood supplement of choice by various high-profile personalities such as Jennifer Aniston, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore.
The surge in popularity of AFA blue green algae bears testimony to the wide spectrum of health benefits that people have experienced when taking the algae. And while vitamin and mineral supplements have become heavily promoted for nearly a half-century, wild greenfoods such as Klamath blue green algae are now becoming important components of leading-edge nutritional regimes. Healthcare practitioners - including physicians, naturopaths, homeopaths, acupuncturists and chiropractors - are using The Really Healthy Company's algae as part of their patients' nutritional regimes.
AFA wild Klamath Blue Green Algae® is harvested from the highly mineralized Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon, USA, using a unique floating harvester, engineered with state-of-the-art screening and refrigeration systems. The algae then undergoes a gentle cool-drying process to not only retain nutrient integrity, but also to concentrate its goodness by up to 20 times. Every batch of the cool-dried algae is tested for purity by an independent laboratory, and the Oregon Department of Agriculture has a representative in the Klamath area that also conducts spontaneous sampling to further ensure all products meet the standards of food hygiene. In addition, the product has been examined here in the UK, and approved as a food.
Klamath Blue Green Algae® in CAPSULES: this is the most convenient way to take Klamath Blue Green algae. Each capsules contains 500mg of pure Klamath Blue Green Algae and can be taken with water or juice.
Klamath Blue Green algae® in POWDER: this form is perfect for adding to smoothies. While it can be an acquired taste mixed in just water, many also take it this way as it is more cost effective. (Better to start with capsules if new to the product.)
Directions: When first taking the product it is recommended to start with just one capsule or, if using powder, one third of a level teaspoon (½g), in a glass of water or juice on am empty stomach, preferably early in the day. Gradually build up to 2 capsules a day or two-thirds of a level teaspoon (1g) a day, or as advised by your healthcare practitioner.

Organic Chlorella (Chlorella pyrenoidosa) is a powerful green algae that supports detox, immunity and regeneration.
Chlorella is a unicellular green algae which has many remarkable health benefits, and is known to help support detoxification and immunity. It is also a source of chlorella growth factor (CGF) which is considered by some to be its primary health benefit.
The species of chlorella that we choose for this product is chlorella pyrenoidosa, which is known to have a higher concentration of certain vitamins and amino acids, and also a higher concentration of CGF. Our chlorella is grown organically in Mongolia and in an indoor controlled environment to guarantee purity, and is stringently tested in the United States to confirm it is clean. The algal cell walls are also broken to ensure optimum absorption, the product is cool-air-dried to maximize its nutritional profile, and then it is encapsulated to make the chlorella much more available than a tablet.
Our chlorella is certified by Oregon Tilth (Cert. no. 3295664), and is encapsulated and bottled in the United States.
Directions: Take 3 to 6 capsules (1.5g to 3g) a day on an empty stomach. (This can be increased if an extra nutritional boost is desired or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.)
Ingredients: 100% Organic Chlorella, vegetarian capsule (hydroxypoply methyl cellulose).
