There are over 70,000 species of algae in the world. Some are magnificent whole foods such as spirulina and dunaliella like those contained in BAC. BAC is a very special blend of some of the oldest food on the planet. There exist fossils of cyanobacteria blue-green algae that are over 3.5 billion years old. BAC is an extremely good source of vitamins and minerals due to the rich variety present in its microalgae makeup. BAC contains all vitamins, including a full Vitamin B Complex, vitamins A, D, K, E & C and has a wide range of minerals, including magnesium, potassium, iron and calcium, and all other nutrient co-dependents for these vitamins to be functional and active for human assimilation. BAC is great for anyone from infants to the elderly.
Since BAC is a complete food, you do not need to worry about dosages when taking it. You cannot make a mistake with mixing and matching like you might with isolate and separate vitamins and minerals. You do not even need to worry about taking it with or without food. All you need is water. When you take BAC, you automatically get complete and perfect ratios of the nutrients contained within it. BAC is known for its balance and synergy between the vitamins and minerals that your body needs. The way nature makes vitamins and nutrients in plants cannot be replicated by chemists now and it will never be possible. A small amount of vitamin C occurring in a green pepper is tremendously more nutritionally functional than 1,000 mg of ascorbic acid from a bottle.
Furthermore, when you take vitamin supplements, you are taking risks with mixing and matching isolate and synthetic compounds that fall in the chemical category. You CANNOT sustain life eating multi-vitamins and minerals as supplements.
Yet you could live on about 60 capsules of BAC per day. That’s barely 10 grams of food! I do not recommend that you do that, but I would not hesitate to do it myself.
I have not recommended isolate supplements to anyone for over 16 years, and I will never regret this decision. I am intellectually convinced by scientific research and experimentally by my real-life experience that the best way to get your vitamins is to “let thy food be your medicine.” I do not care what any vitamin company or scientist has to say about isolates/separates, they are just chemicals. The only way to restore your healing energies is from naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients and other nutrients that you can only obtain “the way nature intended it”, from your food, and you can get even more into you with BAC.
BAC contains all of the vitamins that all living beings need to carry on metabolic processes. You will find vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, folic acid, inositol, and biotin:
VIATMIN A : Necessary for the growth and repair of body tissues; helps maintain smooth, soft, disease-free skin; helps protect the mucous membranes of the mouth, nose, throat and lungs thereby reducing susceptibility to infections; protects against air pollutants; counteracts night-blindness and weak eyesight; aids in bone and teeth formation. Current medical research shows that foods rich in beta carotene (a precursor to Vitamin A) help reduce the risk of lung cancer and certain oral cancers. Unlike Vitamin A from fish liver oil, Vitamin A from Bio-Algae Concentrates is non-toxic.
PYRIDOXINE or B6 : Involved in the breakdown and assimilation of protein. Protects cardiac health, reduces edema and stabilizes female hormone levels. Dr. Carl Pfeiffer has demonstrated that B6, together with the mineral zinc, can cure some forms of schizophrenia.
BIOTIN : An enzyme that carries CO during certain biochemical reactions involved in carbohydrate metabolism. Also acts as a co-enzyme in the assimilation of other B-complex vitamins. Biotin is destroyed by eating raw egg whites and some kinds of raw fish.
COBALAMIN or B12 : The most difficult of all vitamins to obtain from vegetable sources. Bio-Algae Concentrates is extremely rich in this rare vitamin, containing 250 percent more than beef liver, previously thought to be nature’s richest source. A single serving of BAC easily exceeds the Recommended Daily Allowance of 1.5 to 3 mcg daily. B12 deficiency results in pernicious anemia, nerve degeneration, premature senility, pronounced fatigue and mental illnesses resembling schizophrenia.
PANTOTHENIC ACID : The “stress” vitamin, used by the adrenal glands, along with cholesterol and vitamin C, to manufacture cortisone and other steroids in response to physical and mental stress. Deficiency encourages sensitivity to allergies, infections and degenerative diseases such as arthritis and rheumatism. Ulcers and hypoglycemia have also been associated with a shortage of this vitamin.
FOLIC ACID : Essential to proper hemoglobin formation in red blood cells. Deficiency results in anemia, poor growth, skin pigmentation disorders and premature graying of the hair.
INOSITOL : Vital lipotropic nutrient that sustains liver health and helps detoxify carcinogens, particularly excess female hormones. Helps normalize blood cholesterol levels. With choline, inositol is used by the liver to manufacture lecithin. Inositol is the second most abundant vitamin in the body after niacin. Recent studies indicate that inositol, with biotin, reduces loss of scalp hair.
NIACIN : Also known as nicotinic acid, and niacinamide, and/or Nicotinamide – all names or forms of Vitamin B3 – which is an alternative form, niacin is essential to mental health. Dr. Abram Hoffer, a renowned pioneer in orthomolecular psychiatry, has completely relieved schizophrenic symptoms using niacin. The Physicians’ Desk Reference, a pharmaceutical text used by doctors when prescribing medication, recognizes niacin as an effective cholesterol lowering agent.
RIBOFLAVIN or B2 : The most common vitamin deficiency is that of riboflavin and results in cataracts, failing vision, watery eyes and uncontrollable eczema.
THIAMINE or B1 : A co-enzyme in the breakdown of dietary carbohydrates. Maintains levels of glucose in the blood. Deficiency results in weakness, cardiac damage, abdominal distention and poor oxygenation. Severe shortage results in death; critical toxemia develops from unmetabolized carbohydrate fragments.
VITAMIN C : Essential for healthy teeth, gums and bones; helps heal wounds, scar tissue and fractures; prevents scurvy; builds resistance to infection; aids in the prevention and treatment of the common cold; gives strength to blood vessels; aids in the absorption of iron. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, the inter cellular “cement” which holds tissues together. It is also one of the major antioxidant nutrients. It prevents the conversion of nitrates (from tobacco smoke, smog, bacon, lunch meats, and some vegetables) into cancer-causing substances. According to Dr. Lines Pauling, the foremost authority on Vitamin C, Vitamin C will decrease the risk of getting certain cancers.
VITAMIN D : Improves absorption and utilization of calcium and phosphorous; required for bone and teeth formation; maintains a stable nervous system and normal heart action.
VITAMIN E: or TOCOPHEROL – Algae in Bio-Algae Concentrates contains more vitamin E per gram than pure wheat germ. Its biological activity is 49% greater than synthetic vitamin E. Vitamin E protects heart and vascular health, promotes oxygenation of cells, and retards aging.
