BioSuperfood Nutrients

The following list, though detailed, remains partial and estimated. It is based on the available nutritional values for those “plain” micro-algae at the time of writing. “Plain” in this text means standard or common. One can easily grow a plain, nutrient-poor, small, yellowish tomato in the desert of Colorado or one can grow a “super,” nutrient-rich, large, juicy, red tomato in a protected and rich soil. The same goes for algae, except that due to the density of algae, the difference can be gigantic.

The algae in BAC are not “plain”. They are grown in a rich “soil” or “base” with an extraordinary offering of trace elements and other required nutrients. The difference between a Hawaiian volcanic region, an Australian volcanic region and a Siberian volcanic peninsula is worlds apart when it comes to their content of trace elements – the stuff that life is made of.

As mentioned previously, I will not attempt to list all the nutrients in BAC and their exact amount or quantity, for this task is impossible as we now know that there are more than 15,000 nutrients/phytonutrients in those micro-algae, and the list would change with each batch. With natural foods, even with the best of growing, harvesting and blending technology, one can never achieve a standard delivery of nutrients and certainly not on the microscopic level. But that’s the way nature is, and that’s the way our bodies are too; not one of us has the same biochemical make-up or needs.

The values listed are quantitative by weight, units or in proportion to the overall weight. They are not in proportion or in relation to the RDAs. Some values listed as “n/a” are either not available, not applicable, not present, or not researched by the author. In some cases, I have listed the average of a range rather than the range.

*Estimated per 10 grams from base “plain” algae value

Looking at the nutrients that BAC provides, a well-informed nutritionist can only stare in awe: these are ALL of the nutrients needed by every human body, in near-perfect ratios! It is almost as if Mother Nature herself reached down from the heavens and said, “Here is the perfect food for all human beings…” and gave us micro-algae. They are that impressive.

The only thing that is not impressive about these superfoods is their publicity. Owing to the fact that pharmaceutical companies cannot profit from them, the true healing benefits of these superfoods are virtually unknown by Western medical professionals. As you will see in the sections that follow, this is an extremely unfortunate situation as the use of BAC in patients can not only prevent millions of cases of serious disease each year, it can actually help the body to reverse conditions like cancer. It can even be used as an adjunct “complementary” therapy to help those who choose the Western medicine route and allow themselves to be subjected to chemotherapy, for example.
