Q: What are some of the benefits of taking Pure Klamath Crystals?
A: Pure Klamath Crystals is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, containing glycoproteins, vitamins, minerals, simple carbohydrates, lipids, chlorophyll, biologically active enzymes, and phytonutrients, including beta-carotene. It is a concentrated source of arginine, known to build and tone muscle tissue. The unusual peptide molecules found in Klamath Lake algae are precursors to two important brain foods: glycogen and neuropeptides, which help enhance and heighten mental clarity. Most importantly, due to Pure Klamath Crystals' nutritious soft cell wall, the algae’s nutrients are readily available to the body. As the body uses only a small amount of energy to convert this superfood into fuel, consuming Pure Klamath Crystals is a fast, efficient, and energizing way to improve any diet.
Q: What is Pure Klamath Crystals?
A: Pure Klamath Crystals (the algae species Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, also known as Klamath Lake algae) is a very unique, wild harvested, highly nutritious, freshwater algae growing in natural abundance in Upper Klamath Lake in Oregon. The precipitation that falls on the Cascade Mountains washes mineral-rich volcanic soil into the alkaline lake annually. The mineral-rich water, clean air and high-intensity sunlight make the unique ecosystem of Upper Klamath Lake the perfect growth medium for Aphanizomenon flos-aquae. Pure Klamath Crystals, unlike cultivated algae, is a naturally occurring perennial. Its survival depends on the heartiest strain reproducing itself and its ability to communicate environmental and other conditions to each strand in the bloom. During summer months, the algae reproduces itself every four days, and at this time, Pure Klamath Crystals is harvested fresh from the lake on a daily basis, triple-filtered to ensure absolute purity, and then chilled before we utilize our exclusive cold-drying processing to retain the algae’s biologically active vital nutrients.
Q: Will I derive any benefit from taking Pure Klamath Crystals in addition to Pure Synergy?
A: Pure Klamath Crystals is the perfect companion to Pure Synergy. While you are getting a generous amount of Klamath Lake algae in a heaping tablespoon of Pure Synergy, this algae has some unique characteristics when used on its own as well. Pure Klamath Crystals has wonderful adaptogenic effects, meaning that it helps your body adapt to the stressful demands of modern life. Athletes, for example, report using this algae before a workout, as it helps their body adapt to the stress of exercise. Klamath Lake algae is also quite energizing and many people tell us that they use Pure Klamath Crystals when they feel they need extra stamina, energy, or mental clarity and focus. For instance, a student studying late for a test, or preparing to give a presentation might want to use Pure Klamath Crystals for better mental clarity.
Q: I’ve seen fresh-frozen Klamath Lake algae for sale. Is fresh algae better than powdered?
A: Once frozen algae is thawed, it must be used quickly to prevent spoilage, as it will go bad in a few hours and there is no way to be sure of the safety of that product. Pure Klamath Crystals, by contrast, has a three-year shelf life, even after the product is opened, and is fully tested to be pure and safe. In fact, we specifically do not freeze our Pure Klamath Crystals, as this ruptures the cell walls and degrades the product. Moreover, because frozen algae still contains water, one would need to take approximately ten times the amount of a frozen product as compared to our powdered Pure Klamath Crystals to get an equal amount of algae. Traveling with fresh algae is also impractical. Pure Klamath Crystals is available in convenient capsule form, so you can take it with you anywhere. Furthermore, Synergy’s Pure Klamath Crystals is as close to fresh as possible: it is harvested with the utmost care and processed at low temperatures in order to protect the algae’s valuable nutrients.
