Re: Super Blue Green Algae

Earlier, Mary Ann Rose and Ron Gallinger had this to say about 
Super Blue Green Algae ...

You're correct in that Super Blue Green Algae (a brand name) is only 
available from a company called Cell Tech, which is a multi-level 
marketing organization not unlike Shaklee, Amway, etc.

However, the very same blue green algae (aphanizomenon flos aquae)
from Lake Klamath is also available over the counter under various
brand names.

It should also be noted that there was a great deal of discussion 
last year in venues such as Vegetarian Times about the safety and 
purity of these freshwater algae.  Apparently there is some debate 
about the quality control and possible toxicity of aphaniz. algae.

I personally have used this type of algae to some good effect, and 
with no adverse side effects; many fantastic claims have been made 
about its nutritional and healing powers.  Your best bet -- 
comparison shop, and do some research of your own.
