There's only one ingredient in E3Live, and that's 100% Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA for short), an edible freshwater plant. AFA is at the very foundation of the entire food chain.
Although it has been eaten for centuries by indigenous peoples, for the first time in history, AFA - nature's most basic food - is available in it's complete, vital, fresh frozen, LIQUID form.
Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA), (means invisible flower of the water) is a fresh water nutritional plant referred to as cyanophyta. Cyanophyta are living water plants that grow in nearly all droplets of sunlit water and in every gram of soil, on the bark of trees and the surfaces of rocks. It is estimated that there are as many as 50,000 species, including various seaweeds and plankton.
Collectively, cyanophyta are responsible for 90% of the Earth's oxygen and 80% of its food supply. Perhaps the most interesting of these unicellular plants are the cyanophyta community, of which there are about 1500 species - the Upper Klamath Lake, Aphanizomenon flos-aquae, or AFA for short, being one of them. AFA is a very special form of cyanophyta. All foods reflect the environment in which they are grown. The beautiful, unpolluted Upper Klamath Lake-one of the few remaining alkaline lakes on the planet holds the key to it's remarkable potency.
This lake has an astonishingly high mineral concentration due to a massive volcanic eruption that occurred in the vicinity over 7,000 years ago, covering the area with millions of tons of mineral ash. Seventeen streams and rivers deposit into the 140 square mile lake an annual average of 50,000 tons of the mineral-rich silt from the surrounding 4000 square mile volcanic basin, making Upper Klamath Lake one of the richest nutrient traps in the world.
Much has been learned about this amazing food since it became available as a food source over 20 years ago. There are more benefits being discovered every day as this cyanophyta is introduced to the medical and scientific communities. AFA has been available in powders and capsules, but now, for the first time in history, AFA is available in its much more potent and vibrant frozen LIQUID form.
Keeping E3Live Fresh: Keep frozen until ready to use, then place bottle in refrigerator to partially defrost. Pour off the thawed portion (only pour off enough for a 7-day supply). Place remainder of bottle back in freezer until ready to defrost again.
For immediate defrosting, place bottle in cool water for 15 minutes.
Insider's Tip: Find one of those plastic ice trays that has a lid (to keep freezer odors out) and fill the tray with your thawed E3Live (make sure that you measure so that each cube equals one serving for you). Put the tray back in the freezer. When you want to add E3Live to your juice you can use an "E3Live Cube" as your serving size.
No two people are alike. For most everybody, we recommend starting with 1 teaspoon per day. Some people will eat E3Live in more liberal quantities, even several ounces a day, whenever they need an added boost. Work your way up at your own pace. Trust your intuition.
As with anything concerning your health, it is best to consult with your healthcare professional prior to consuming E3Live or any E3 products if you have any concerns regarding your health or a specific medical condition.
If you defrosted the bottle of E3Live in your refrigerator or in a cool bowl of water, and it hasn't been thawed for more than a few hours, it should be fine. Just pour off the portion for the week that you need, then refreeze the rest. Alternately you can pour off your week's worth, then make single-serving E3Live ice cubes by pouring into ice cube trays that have resealable lids (to keep freezer odors out). Add the single serving cube to your water or juice as your daily serving of E3Live.
Both are 100% Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) a freshwater plant harvested from Klamath Lake in Oregon.
E3Live is the frozen/liquid form of the AFA which is superior to all other forms of AFA. E3Live is the only company to offer AFA in this fresh frozen form.
E3AFA is the Hydro•Dri™ dried form of the AFA, which comes as either vegetarian capsules or loose powder.
Both are excellent foods. E3Live's live liquid form is closest to its natural high-energy state found in nature and is the ideal way to consume AFA. Our Hydro•Dri™ drying method retains much of AFA's original nutritional and energetic properties. We recommend our Hydro•Dri™ dried E3AFA to further boost nutritional intake, as well as for your convenience at work and while traveling if refrigeration is not available.
E3Live is a whole, organic freshwater plant found in the wild that has both discovered and undiscovered nutrients. These nutrients are 97% fully assimilated. Only a fraction of the vitamin content of more expensive "health food vitamins" are actually absorbed by the body. Man-made supplements only contain what the formulators choose to include.
E3Live is the only AFA that is live, liquid and delivered to you closest to its natural state. E3Live is selectively gathered by our expert harvesters, and collected from only the deepest, most pristine waters of Upper Klamath Lake. We harvest only at peak times of optimal growth, when the AFA is the heartiest, healthiest and most vibrant.
Harvesting AFA is an art AND a science. We discovered that the strongest and freshest AFA possesses the highest life-force.
The benefits of AFA are directly proportional to the quality of the harvesting source, and how the AFA is handled at every step of the process. We take pride in knowing that we bring you the most potent and powerful AFA in the world.
E3Live's superior harvesting and proprietary filtration methods ensure the absolute highest quality. Our AFA is selectively harvested so that only the purest, most vibrant blooms are gathered. Starting at our harvest site, E3Live is immediately chilled to preserve its natural vitality and highest nutritional value. We work hand-in-hand with the most experienced, conscientious harvesters and knowledgeable researchers in the world.
From the moment we harvest the AFA, to its final packaging, we work with only the most highly trained and qualified staff. We handle our AFA with such care from start to finish. Factors contributing to this quality include: where and how we harvest, keeping the AFA cold at all times, superior filtration and storage, and ongoing quality-control testing of all of our products. All E3 products are tested thoroughly by independent USDA certified labs for food safety, shelf-life and various other purity tests.
The benefits of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae are directly related to the care and attention given to sourcing and harvesting the product. Our quality care begins with the selection of the freshest AFA "blooms" from pristine Eagle Ridge. The harvesting is quickly followed by rapid chilling of the AFA to 34 to 37 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, our E3Live is further purified by careful centrifugation, leaving a product chilled and scrupulously clean. E3Live is handled more expeditiously from harvest to freezer than any competitive product. Our quality control parameters, coupled with our proprietary final processing, yields the Lake's most potent source of AFA.
Unless you know the source of your AFA, there is no guarantee of quality. E3Live and other E3AFA products are harvested by the most competent harvesting team, and staff of engineers in our industry.
Absolutely. In fact, both the liquid E3Live and our E3AFA dried form are favorites among veterinarians who successfully treat nutritional deficiencies in dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, horses, and other animals. Benefits are especially seen in older animals, bringing back youthfulness and a higher quality of life. We now carry E3 Canine especially for dogs of all ages.
Horse owners love E3Live for the changes seen in hooves, coats and the overall health of their horses.
If you love your pet, you'll love E3Live. There is no other pet food that dares to give an unconditional one-year guarantee that you will "See the Difference!" Read about other pet owner's experiences with E3Live in our Testimonials section.
Because people report AFA helps such a wide range of physical and mental symptoms, it's easy to fall into a "magic bullet" mentality associated with pharmaceutical drugs. AFA doesn't work that way. Aphanizomenon flos-aquae is an extraordinary food, not a drug or synthesized vitamin.
Artificial drugs are synthesized in the laboratory to produce specific effects on targeted cells, organs, or body functions. Though some drugs save lives, unfortunately, some drugs also create unwanted side-effects.
In contrast, Nature's innate wisdom works through AFA's full spectrum of over 64 perfectly balanced, naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, amino acids (protein) and essential fatty acids. AFA helps restore overall biological balance and nourishes the body at the cellular level. AFA is 97% absorbable by the body, compared to man-made vitamins which are only 5% to 25% absorbable. Without any toxicity or side-effects, this is how AFA can have so many beneficial nutritional and energetic effects throughout the body.
The beneficial effects of E3Live and E3AFA in your body can be subtle as it works to provide long-term protection and well-being. Some people may experience noticeable changes within a few weeks of use - others may notice differences right away or, conversely, notice no effect whatsoever.
It is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly in order to reap the full, long-term benefits of AFA. And, while the benefits of consuming AFA may not always be visibly manifested, be assured its phyto-nutrients are working "behind the scenes" throughout your body's internal systems.
E3Live AFA contains an abundant amount of chlorophyll which helps to rid the body of toxins. It is normal when you first start taking E3Live to have detoxification symptoms, which may include a slight headache and feeling more tired. These symptoms are your body's way of releasing toxins from your body. It is important to drink plenty of water throughout the day to help flush out any toxins. Our suggested amount to drink of E3Live when first starting out is 1 tsp per day for the first week (then increase gradually to what you prefer), but for some people they may need to start out with less. Let your body be a guide in how much to take.
E3Live has 64 easily absorbed vitamins, minerals and amino acids. Many people take just E3Live while others will take additional supplements. Listen to your body. It will tell you if you need any additional supplements.
E3Live never adds water. E3Live is a 'whole living algae' harvested from the lake. Algae cells are 92% water as nature has made them.
Inside the algae cell walls are all of the vitamins, minerals, amino acids and omega fatty acids, chlorophyll and phyto compounds.
When algae is frozen, the cell walls burst open and then separate from the liquid. If you were to drip the E3Live through a cheesecloth, the solids that you see in the cheesecloth are those cell walls.
As an undomesticated, wild-grown food, E3Live naturally responds to variations in the weather. Different harvest yield E3Live with higher amounts of chlorophyll or carotenoids or essential fatty acids. E3Live with more of the blue color have more phycocyanin. Other times when E3Live is more brown in color, it has more of the carotenoids than the chlorophyll. Different harvests of this superfood naturally vary in color, smell and taste because of ever-changing day-to-day shifts in weather, sunlight, temperature of water, temperature of air, etc. This natural ebb and flow is all part of the beauty of E3Live’s wild harvest. We ensure that every year, with every harvest, we offer the same high quality AFA it has been for the past 23+ years.
