In case you wondered…


Biosuperfood is a blend of four microalgae that are each a whole food 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 amongst hundreds for their unique compatibility and synergy and are carefully grown and blended for maximum results.

Since Dr. Kiriac introduced Biosuperfood in America 12 years ago, several people have asked this question, and a few people have tried plain store bought astaxanthin stand alone, and some have gone further making their own blend with store bought algae. Most came Back to using Biosuperfood, when they were not obtaining results.
There are many reasons why taking a single separate carotenoid like astaxanthin, or some other mix will not provide the results that Biosuperfood consistently delivers. Hundreds of clinicians assisted by hundreds of farm aids took more than 10 years investigating hundreds of algae, testing hundreds of different proportioned blends, discovering algae growing technologies that augmented the yield, and that with over 20 species of animals in hundreds of test groups, culminating in several large trials totaling over one million of animal. Dr. Kiriac was on to astaxanthin in 1975, testing it as a separate, learning its potentials, realizing its intense and short lived benefits, trialing it in many ways. When used as a separate, he also learned its inability to stabilize and obtain remission of cancers and other diseases. While by 1979, when astaxanthin was included in Biosuperfood, along with many other powerful carotenoids, they finally obtained the results they had been looking for; prevention, stabilization and remission of cancers in the many species tested. Dr. Kiriac says that during those years, he realized the saying “the whole is larger than the sum of its parts”, and many other lessons:
The lessons learned during those long years of research are applied in Biosuperfood as described further in this article;

  • completeness over isolates and separates (i.e. plate of mix fresh foods, Asian style over steak and potatoes)
  • balance and frequency of intake over infrequent large doses (eating six small meals increases by 25% the lifespan of rats, while one large meal decreases their lifespan by 25%)
  • synergies obtained with nutrient diversity over the force of large dose of single nutrients or cocktails (mixed foods rich in several carotenoids and antioxidants with moderate ORAC values delivers more antioxidative and anti-inflammatory protection than a single food with a high ORAC value)
  • efficiencies of wholefood in its natural form over separates (i.e. 23 milligrams of vitamin C obtain eating a red pepper is tremendously more nutritionally functional than 1000 milligrams of ascorbic acid from a vitamin C pill.)

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.

Our formulas are certified by Health Canada for their purity and exact content. Health Canada imposes that each lot is analyzed for its nutrient content and verified for heavy metals and other pollutants. There are over 25,000 different species of algae in the world. Dr. Kiriac experimented with many different species and/or combinations thereof and chose the four in our formulas after careful scrutiny and testing. Furthermore, the sensitive algae in our formulas are grown in a protected environment – bioreactors – where water and air quality, temperature, turbulence and light can be controlled and enhanced. The algae are organically grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, growth hormones or any additives.

There are over 25,000 different species of algae in the world. Most are found growing in the wild and some beneficial to all living creatures are cultivated by man for consumption; unfortunately many are toxic to some degree due to their habitats or pollutants.
In order to avoid airborne pollution including sun ultra violet damage, the sensitive algae in BioSuperfood are grown in covered facilities called bioreactors where temperature, turbulence and light can be controlled and enhanced. And to further avoid toxicities from oceans, lakes, or open lagoons, pure and mineral rich water is obtained from geysers stemming from two thousand feet below a Siberian volcanic peninsula. The algae are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and without antibiotics, growth hormones or any additives.

There are three BIOSUPERFOOD : F1, F2 and F3, each containing different proportions of the same four microalgae, resulting in slightly different concentrations of nutrients in each formula.

Our four algae are grown in mineral rich volcanic region. They are grown in covered bioreactors to protect the algae from airborne or ocean/lake pollutants.

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 the micro-algae Spirulina Pacifica, Spirulina Platensis, Dunaliella and Haematoccocus for its high concentration of the carotenoid Astaxanthin. You can be assured that BioSuperfood never contains any toxic or contaminated algae since they are grown in controlled bioreactors and not in the wild. Everything from the selection of light, heat, water and nutrients is done under the supervision of Dr Kiriac.

From over 20 years of research, the formulator, Dr. Michael Kiriac, has learned that specific light, heat and water conditions are necessary to maximize the nutrients of algae. The concentration of nutrients in BSF far exceeds that of any other single or mixed algae. This level of technology and purity is the principal reason why BioSuperfood is a breed apart in the algae market. Dr Kiriac’s algae are more “nutraceutical” than any other algae and have a much greater potential to awaken the body’s own natural ability to heal.

Good foods have the potential to nourish and heal. For this healing to be a reality, the nutrients in our food must be absorbed within our cells in sufficient quantities. With poor food choices, aging, and other metabolic deficiencies, this absorption becomes quite inefficient and cellular disease takes over. Due to its extraordinary broad nutrient content and bioavailability, BSF’s nourishing potential is much higher than that of ordinary foods and other supplements.

The efficiency of Biosuperfood is such that it should not be consumed in larger amount than per directions whereby the capsule serving size can be easily measured and controlled by the user. It is not like a plain spirulina alga that can be eaten by the spoon. Some former users of blue-green algae or spirulina that use to eat between 10 to 20 grams per day have realized that they derive more results eating only one to three grams of Biosuperfood. Under Health Canada certification, the current capsule size cannot be altered unless a new application is filed.

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!

Yes, 100%.


Biosuperfood is freeze dried at a low temperature and is 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 loss of enzyme and nutritional strength.


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.

The beneficial effects of consuming BSF can be experienced within hours of consumption, while the more subtle benefits work to provide long-term protection and well-being. Some people may experience noticeable changes within a few weeks of use while others may notice differences right away or, conversely, notice no apparent or obvious effect.
While the benefits of consuming BSF may not always be noticeable in the short term, there is no doubt that its nutrients are working at the cellular level throughout your entire body. One must also consider how many years our bodies have lived in nutrient deficits and the resultant disfunction, which is not reversed overnight. As with any other health pursuit, it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly in order to reap more of the full, long-term benefits of BSF.


BSF is a blend of four whole food microalgae containing over 5,000 nutrients/compounds per capsule, likely the most complete foods on earth. As such, all its nutrients are accompanied by any/all respective cofactors, and are 100% bioavailable. 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.

Even though there’s a high proportion and quality of calcium in a daily regimen of BSF, it isn’t enough, when measured against the RDA.
However, it was demonstrated in all mammals tested and in large trials with dairy cows and egg-laying poultry, that when adding a tiny amount of BSF to their daily feed, these animals no longer suffered the loss of bone density.
 Dairy cows lose much of their body calcium to their constant milk production on an ongoing basis.  Their daily food/feed does not suffice, losing more than what they can absorb and assimilate for their own body mass.  They are slaughtered after around 5 years because their bone structure cannot sustain their weight.
 Egg-laying poultry suffers the same fate in these massive production facilities.  They lose their calcium to the eggshell and suffer bone density loss after 12 months when they are then slaughtered for meat.
 When BSF is added to their feed, both species do not suffer the loss of bone density.  Additionally, the calcium in the milk and eggshell is even better.
See the attached studies :

When taken daily, even one capsule of BSF will provide health benefits above and beyond any vitamin or mineral supplement. Most people who are on a daily regimen of BSF find that they can eliminate all other supplements, feel much better, and save money too! With BSF, 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.

BSF 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 BSF.

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.
