It's Harvest Season!

This is my favorite time of year! The sun is shining, our veggie garden is overflowing with greens, and we are back in Oregon, busy harvesting the wonderfully nutritious blue-green algae that grows in Klamath Lake.

Many people have questions about our E3Live, and I'd like to take a moment to answer them for you.

First off, no, this is not the same type of algae that grows in your pool if you stop paying your pool guy to show up and work his wonder. There are literally thousands of types of algae, and, while some are disgusting and even deadly, that is not the case with Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, or AFA for short. 

AFA is the single-cell super food that grows abundantly in the warm, shallow, mineral-rich waters of Klamath Lake in Southern Oregon. While many other nutritious algae are grown in vats and cement troughs, our AFA, sold under our brand name E3Live, is wild harvested. 

What does that mean? It means that we let Mother Nature combine the raw ingredients of sunlight, minerals and water and all we do is simply go out on the lake and harvest the results. No troughs, no vats. Just the pristine lake and the "magic" of nature. We give careful attention to selecting and harvesting the freshest AFA blooms, put them through our quality-controlled purification process, then bottle and freeze them before sending out for our clients to enjoy! 

Each and every bottle of our E3Live naturally contains more than 65 vitamins, minerals, amino acids and essential fatty acids. But all this good stuff doesn't mean anything unless your body can use it! Because the fresh liquid form of AFA is readily absorbed by your body, you can be sure that you are receiving the maximum benefits of all these nutrients. 

I'm also often asked what is the best way to use E3Live. My answer? Whatever your imagination can dream of! Add it to smoothies and juices, combine it with water, take it as a "shot" of pure energy, make it into ice cubes, add it to cold soups - anything goes, provided that you do not cook it.

Here's Jayden enjoying a peanut butter and algae sandwich, fresh from the harvester. 

AFA is more dense when first harvested, and therefore, easier to spread on bread. While E3Live in the bottle is in a more liquid form than AFA straight out of the lake, you can still enjoy this sandwich if you're not on the harvester with us! Just mix some E3Live into some raw nut butter, spread it on organic bread (preferably home made!), and you have a nutritious, delicious and very filling snack for the whole family to enjoy!

I hope that I've given you plenty of information to answer your questions, but if there's anything else you'd like to know, just ask in the comments section and I'll be sure to answer you!

Til next time -
