BioSuperfood (BSF) – WHAT’S SO SPECIAL?
Biosuperfood is a blend of four microalgae that are each whole foods in themselves, so the combination formula is the most complete food we know to exist, with over 5,000 micronutrients in one capsule. There are many more bioavailable nutrients in BioSuperfood than one would find in “cherry-picking”—trying to achieve the same results with individual supplements! The four microalgae in each of the BioSuperfood formulas are Spirulina Pacifica, Spirulina Platensis, Dunaliella Salina, and Astaxanthin from Haematococcus Pluvialis. These microalgae were selected from among hundreds for their unique compatibility and synergy and are carefully grown and blended for maximum results.
BioSuperfood is a blend of four microalgae, including spirulina and astaxanthin, that is more complete and bioavailable than taking individual supplements.
Spirulina is a nutrient-rich microalgae that has been consumed for centuries. It is a good source of protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant that is found in some algae, fish, and shellfish. It has been shown to have a variety of health benefits, including reducing inflammation, improving cognitive function, and protecting the skin from sun damage.
BioSuperfood contains four microalgae that are each a whole food in themselves. This means that they contain a wide range of nutrients that work together synergistically. For example, the spirulina in BioSuperfood is combined with other microalgae that contain enzymes that help the body better absorb the spirulina’s nutrients.
In addition, BioSuperfood is more bioavailable than taking individual supplements. This means that the nutrients in BioSuperfood are more easily absorbed by the body.
Since Dr. Kiriac introduced BioSuperfood in America 12 years ago, many people have asked why they shouldn’t just take astaxanthin or other algae mixes alone. Dr. Kiriac and his team spent over 10 years researching hundreds of algae and test groups to discover the perfect blend of four microalgae that work synergistically to deliver optimal results.
Here are a few reasons why BioSuperfood is better than taking astaxanthin or other algae mixes alone:
- Completeness over isolates and separates: BioSuperfood is a complete food that contains over 5,000 micronutrients. Taking astaxanthin or other algae mixes alone is like eating one food group instead of a balanced meal.
- Balance and frequency of intake over infrequent large doses: BioSuperfood is designed to be taken daily in small doses. This ensures that your body is constantly receiving the nutrients it needs. Taking large doses of astaxanthin or other algae mixes infrequently can lead to nutrient overload and other health problems.
- Synergies obtained with nutrient diversity over the force of large doses of single nutrients or cocktails: BioSuperfood contains a variety of carotenoids and antioxidants that work together to provide superior antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection. Taking astaxanthin or other algae mixes alone cannot provide the same level of protection.
- Efficiencies of whole food in its natural form over isolates: BioSuperfood is a whole food that contains all of the nutrients that algae have to offer. Taking astaxanthin or other algae mixes alone can lead to nutrient deficiencies.
Great question! Many people want to know this.
Dr Kiriac said he closely studied the nutrient rich Chlorella for one year, before arriving at the decision to exclude it. They observed that it was efficient with some animal species that synthesize the cellulase digestive enzymes, like cows, sheep, etc., while it was inefficient with species that do not metabolize the cellulase enzymes, like rats, pigs, and humans. The cellulase enzyme is required to breakdown the chlorella’s hard cellulose content. When I asked him about “broken cell wall”, he explained that breaking the cell, destroys its molecular integrity and protection, exposing the loose organelles to microbial infestation, and that even when cracked, the hard cellulose content remains a digestive burden. When they subsequently selected two spirulina strains, their research progressed rapidly with all the species tested.
Out of over 25,000 algae species, Dr. Kiriac carefully selected four for our formulas after extensive research and testing. These sensitive algae are grown in protected bioreactors, where we can control and optimize the water and air quality, temperature, turbulence, and light. Our algae are organically grown without any synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones, or additives. Each lot of our formulas undergoes an analysis for nutrient content and a verification for heavy metals and other pollutants, and Health Canada certifies them for their purity and exact content.
Health Canada has approved BioSuperfood for its exact composition and purity. Each lot is analyzed for nutrient content and verified for heavy metals and other pollutants.
Of the over 25,000 algae species in the world, most are found growing in the wild, and unfortunately, many are toxic to some degree due to their habitats or pollutants. To avoid airborne pollution and ocean toxins, BioSuperfood algae are grown in covered bioreactors using pure, mineral-rich water from geysers stemming from two thousand feet below a Siberian volcanic peninsula. BioSuperfood is organically grown without synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones, or additives.
BioSuperfood comes in three formulas, F1, F2, and F3, each with different proportions of the same four microalgae. This allows you to choose the formula that best meets your needs, from the lowest to highest concentrations of nutrients.

BSF is composed of whole, organic water plants that have thousands of both discovered and undiscovered nutrients. These nutrients are fully assimilated by the body without causing toxicity or digestive burden. Often, only a fraction of the content of “health food vitamins” are actually absorbed by the body. Additionally, man-made supplements only contain what the formulators choose to include, and there is no control over mixing with other supplements or the daily diet.
BioSuperfood contains a proprietary blend of four nutrient-dense microalgae: Spirulina Pacifica, Spirulina Platensis, Dunaliella, and Haematococcus. This combination provides an exceptionally high concentration of the antioxidant astaxanthin.
You can rest assured that BioSuperfood’s algae are grown in a tightly controlled indoor facility, not harvested from the wild. Every aspect of the growth process is meticulously overseen by founder Dr. Michael Kiriac to maximize nutritional potency.
Through over 20 years of research, Dr. Kiriac discovered the precise levels of light, temperature, hydration, and nutrients needed to optimize each algae strain. This pioneering expertise in cultivation allows BioSuperfood to achieve a nutrient density unmatched by any single or mixed algae product on the market.
In fact, BioSuperfood is more accurately described as a “nutraceutical” than a supplement. The algae are so packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds that they effectively nourish, heal, and awaken the body’s innate healing intelligence.
The key to harnessing food’s healing power lies in bioavailability—how efficiently nutrients are absorbed into our cells. Without proper absorption, even nutritious foods cannot fully nourish us.
Factors like poor diet, aging, and metabolic issues can impair our body’s ability to extract and utilize nutrients. This cellular malnutrition lays the foundation for disease.
Biosuperfood is extraordinary in both its nutrient density and bioavailability. It contains a vast array of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds at exceptionally high levels.
Just as importantly, BioSuperfood’s nutrients are delivered in a form primed for optimal cellular absorption. This maximizes their ability to nourish, heal, and revitalize the body from within.
While healthy foods certainly have merit, most lack the sheer potency and absorbability of BioSuperfood. This advanced supplement truly represents the next level in nourishing our cells for vibrant health.
BIOSUPERFOOD FORM AND CONSUMPTION
Biosuperfood is an extremely potent and concentrated microalgae extract, with each capsule containing the nutritional equivalent of many grams of raw algae. Consuming too much could potentially cause adverse effects.
The capsule format allows for precise serving sizes that ensure safety and efficacy. The current capsule size was carefully determined during the Health Canada certification process to provide the optimal daily amount.
While plain spirulina or other algae can be safely consumed in larger quantities, BioSuperfood is in a different league due to its proprietary extraction process. Just 1-3 grams per day is sufficient to provide remarkable health benefits.
There is no organic way to stabilize freeze dried algae powder into a tablet without the use of one form or another of chemical stabilizer.
Our hypromellose capsules are of the industry standard, the best in the current market of any vegan/vegetarian-safe option.
The capsules can be gently twisted open over a bowl or glass or directly into the mouth. After the desired amount of powder content is poured out, you can resealed the capsule for later use (if using only a portion at a time). Make sure hands are dry and you’ll get the hang of it! The contents of the capsules can be mixed with water, juice, smoothie or soft foods like applesauce, yogurt, (your pets’ wet food) etc.
Our algae blends are freezed dried crystallized, and as such short temperature extremes during shipping do not affect the product.
As a domesticated, hydroponically-grown food, Biosuperfood tends to be very stable from harvest to harvest. However, each harvest will yield slightly different amounts of chlorophyll, carotenoids, trace elements or essential fatty acids. Different harvests and amount of time passed since harvest may also result in a difference in smell, color and taste from bottle to bottle.
Yes. Our capsules are 100% vegetarian- and vegan- friendly!
Biosuperfood is freeze-dried at a low temperature and crystallized in the process. As such, it will keep for many years at normal room temperature. It is best to keep it away from hot stoves or direct sun exposure. Keeping it in a drawer or cupboard is best. It can also be kept in the refrigerator. We recommend not keeping it in the freezer, as repeated thawing may initiate a loss of enzyme and nutritional strength.
HOW TO TAKE / HOW MUCH?
For most people, we recommend starting with one or two capsules per day, increasing gradually to an average of six per day. Trust your body to guide you to the intake level that’s best for you as no two people are alike.
Because of its rapid nutritional influence, Biosuperfood should always be introduced to the body gradually to allow physiological changes to take place progressively and be well-received within the body. Take just one capsule at a time, and spread intakes out at regular intervals throughout the day. Consult our Biosuperfood Usage Guidelines for more guidance
BIOSUPERFOOD is itself a whole food and can be consumed onits own. It can also be consumed with food, and best taken 20 minutes before foods, as there will be increased assimilation of those foods
There are no known contraindications for consuming BSF with any food, supplement or drug.
Yes they may, and as per our instructions on the bottle, we recommend that pregnant women start gradually and work their way up to four capsules daily, while nursing mothers can start and use BSF normally. We recommend that pregnant women consult with their medical or healthcare practitioners before beginning to consume BSF.
It is normal when first starting to take BSF that some people may experience symptoms of detoxification, which may include a low grade headache and tiredness. These symptoms are the body’s way of releasing toxins. BSF contains an abundant amount of chlorophyll which helps to rid the body of toxins. It is important to drink plenty of water throughout the day to help flush out any toxins and prevent symptoms of detoxification.
For maximum results, we recommend that you take BSF one capsule at a time starting first thing in the morning and continue taking one capsule at 3 to 6 regular intervals throughout the day preferably on an empty stomach.
BSF enters the body and results can be observed through blood tests or other means to show positive effects within minutes. However, every body is unique in its own biochemistry, diet, lifestyle and circumstance. Many will notice immediate benefits after just 1 or 2 capsules, or after 1 or 2 days. For others it might take longer to see specific results, but rest assured that all the while BSF is providing the ultimate in nutritional energy on a cellular level, supporting the body to begin to heal and protect itself. Most will see many benefits as soon as the optimal intake level is reached.
While some individuals report that the effects can be felt within hours of intake, kickstarting a journey of enhanced well-being, others observe changes within a week or more. And there are a few that have said they have observed no obvious shift.
Although it may not be immediately noticeable for some, Biosuperfood is working its magic quietly in the background. It nourishes your cells, permeates every aspect of your body, and lays the groundwork for long-term health and incremental improvement.
Consider the years our bodies may have endured nutrient deficiencies and the resulting imbalances. These aren’t rectified overnight.
Just like any health endeavor, consistency is key. Pairing Biosuperfood with a balanced diet and regular exercise will help you unlock its full potential and pave the way for lasting benefits.
Is BioSuperfood enough?
BioSuperfood is a blend of four whole food microalgae containing over 5,000 nutrients and compounds per capsule, likely the most complete foods on earth. As a result, all of its nutrients are 100% bioavailable and are present with any or all of their respective cofactors. These are micronutrients that are naturally occurring and 100% bioavailable, like amounts found in an apple, for example, and not like those on the label of a supplement or a pill, expressed in RDI and in hundreds of mg or iu, etc.
Here is a revised version:
While BioSuperfood contains calcium, its levels alone do not meet the Recommended Daily Allowance. However, research shows BioSuperfood supports bone health through a synergistic effect beyond just calcium content.
Studies in dairy cows and egg-laying hens demonstrate this impact. These animals constantly drain calcium from their bones to produce milk and eggshells. Their feed often cannot supply enough calcium to offset this loss, leading to declining bone density over time.
However, when even tiny amounts of Biosuperfood were added to their diet, it fully prevented bone density loss. The cows and hens maintained strong, healthy bones despite the demands of constant milk and egg production.
Additionally, the calcium levels in their milk and eggshells increased. This reveals an amplifying effect: BioSuperfood enhanced the animals’ ability to utilize calcium for optimal skeletal health and function.
The implications for humans are promising. While BioSuperfood alone may not meet calcium RDAs, it clearly contains bone-supportive synergies beyond just calcium. These compounds work together to optimize calcium absorption, distribution, and utilization for building and maintaining strong, resilient bones.
When taken daily, even one capsule of BioSuperfood will provide health benefits above and beyond any vitamin or mineral supplement. Most people who are on a daily regimen of BioSuperfood find that they can eliminate all other supplements, feel much better, and save money too! With BioSuperfood, the holistic approach is one of optimal nourishment to derive whole-body benefits on the cellular level, which include energy, detoxification, growth, repair, protection, and renewal.
BioSuperfood is not a medicine or remedy. If you have any concerns regarding your health or a specific medical condition, it is always best to consult with your healthcare professional prior to consuming BioSuperfood.
BSF contains some amount of vitamins A, B, C, D, E, K, all known minerals and amino acids, B12, Omega Fatty acids 3, 6, 9, gamma linoleic acid and many carotenoids, which are the best antioxidants. Some people choose to take just BSF while others continue to take other supplements. If you choose to continue taking other supplements, it is safe to take BSF alongside them. BSF has no contraindications with any other medicine, multi-vitamin or food. See NUTRIENTS PAGE for the full run-down
Iodine is a required nutrient for humans. As far as iodine versus algae goes, the reality is that of more than 65,000 known algae, most do not contain high levels of iodine.
The iodine content of BSF amounts to ZERO toxicity potential, and there are no known contraindications with medications or other foods or supplements. On the contrary, expect positive health support from adding BSF to your diet.
