about the author
Christian Drapeau, a foremost scientist in the study of Aphanizomenon
flos-aquae, holds a Masters of Science degree in Neurology and Neurosurgery from
the Montreal Neurological Institute, an affiliate of McGill University,
Montreal, Canada, and has been extensively involved in the study of nutrition,
naturopathy and various natural therapies.
Most significantly, Mr. Drapeau collaborated with many scientists affiliated
with Harvard University, McGill University, the University of Illinois,
Oregon State University, the University of New Mexico and the University of
Mississippi in the study of the effects of blue-green algae (Aphanizomenon
flos-aquae) on human health. Mr. Drapeau continues his involvement in the
clinical study of AFA.
about the book
The following is an excerpt from the back cover of "Primordial Food"
by Christian Drapeau, MSc.,
used with the author's permission.
The health benefits of Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA) have been reported for
more than two decades, yet it is only recently that science has revealed the
mechanisms by which AFA acts on the body, and the astonishing health benefits of
AFA contains a wide variety of phytonutrients that promote health, such as
chlorophyll, carotenoids and polyunsaturated fatty acids. AFA contains unique
molecules that modulate various aspects of human health such as:
• Phenylethylamine (PEA) Beside enhancing concentration and attention, PEA is a
natural mood elevator and anti-depressant.
• Phycocyanin Phycocyanin is the blue pigment in
AFA, which is a natural selective COX-2 inhibitor.
• A polysaccharide that stimulates the migration of immune cells in the body; the only natural compound
known to stimulate immune cell migration.
But the most extraordinary discovery is the ability of AFA to stimulate stem
cell release and migration, making AFA the first natural compound known to
stimulate the natural innate phenomenon of healing, regeneration and repair
in the human body.
