Did you know that eating algae can be good for your health? In fact, humans have been consuming various types of algae for thousands of years because it acts as a natural support to the human body’s various systems. Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, or AFA Microalgae is the base of many E3Live superfoods that comes in a variety of different forms and can benefit different body systems. Check out these five benefits of AFA Microalgae!

What is AFA Microalgae?

Before we dive into the benefits of E3Live superfoods, let's discuss exactly what is AFA Microalgae? These unique algae are harvested from Klamath Lake and contain 65 vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and essential fatty acids. The plant is a type of Cyanophyta, which is a type of plant that grows in droplets of freshwater. These plants make up the basis of the food chain and are present in water, soil oxygen, and food.

AFA Microalgae are unique because they come from an unpolluted lake (Klamath Lake in Oregon) that features a high mineral concentration due to naturally occurring environmental factors in the area. Klamath Lake is one of the richest nutrient traps in the world with an average of 50,000 tons of mineral-rich silt deposits annually.

Because there are so many beneficial nutrients that can be found in AFA, there are different ways that the superfood can be consumed. When certain compounds are extracted, they can provide even more direct benefits to the consumer such as brain function benefits from BrainON.

E3Live uses a proprietary extraction process to harvest AFA microalgae and produce edible microalgae that can be purchased from any E3Live retailer or directly from our online store!


There are a variety of E3Live benefits, the most obvious being the high daily value of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. This makes it a highly beneficial food to include in your daily routine. While all superfoods contain beneficial nutrients, each one can provide different benefits depending on the concentration of each nutrient. The benefits of AFA microalgae include the following.

Improved Brain Function

AFA contains the compounds Phenylethylamine (PEA) and Phycocyanin (PC) which support brain function. This includes improving focus, clarity, stress, and healthy mood balance. In addition, when these compounds are released in the body, they can improve chemical signals in the brain that control other body functions.

Improved Immune System

With such high concentrations of vitamins and minerals, it's no surprise that consuming AFA can improve your immune system. Nutrients such as antioxidants, beta carotene, vitamin B12, omega 3, omega 6, lutein, chlorophyll, and lycopene can help balance your immune system and increase white blood cell production.

Improved Digestive Function

Digestive health can be impacted by everything that you consume from the amount you drink to the types of foods and supplements that you eat. Within the digestive system, there are delicate balances of bacteria, chemicals, and nutrients that impact the efficiency and health of your digestion.

AFA contains valuable digestive vitamins and minerals that can improve digestive function and promote healthy intestines. This can reduce discomfort from bloating, improve constipation symptoms, among other digestive benefits.

Increased Energy

E3Live superfoods are best consumed in the morning due to the ability to provide a long-lasting energy boost that can last throughout the day. It can also improve vitality and endurance and contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Powder and liquid superfoods are commonly combined with smoothies to mask any flavor that might be present in your chosen deliverable. In addition, it combines the benefits of the AFA microalgae with the benefits of other healthy ingredients such as fruits, greens, yogurt, and whatever else you may add.

Reduced Inflammation

Finally, AFA contains valuable antioxidants and cell protection properties. These antioxidants may help reduce the impact of oxidative stress in the body that causes inflammation. This is especially apparent in individuals who suffer from chronic inflammatory conditions, perform repetitive actions, exercise regularly, or experience high levels of stress.

This reduction of oxidative stress in the body can improve oxygen and fluid flow in the area. This may reduce pain, increase mobility, and reduce physical stress on the body. It may also help restore muscles and joint health after a workout.
