A small yet growing rumble of sounds move through the trees and lakes, quaking vibrations begin in the ground, loud expressive explosions start erupting from afar. Smoke, fire, lava, and ash follow. This is how it all began.
Organic Wild Microalgae® (known scientifically as Aphanizomenon flos-aquae), is a delicate strain of cyanobacteria. Unlike other strains of blue-green algae, Wild Microalgae is not manufactured by man. It grows organically and abundantly in only one place in the whole world, Klamath Falls, Oregon. This algae is full of trace minerals such as amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. It’s nutritional value is so great, it can only be comparable to human breast milk.
Wild Microalgae’s origin story begins with the eruption of Mount Mazama. Over seven thousand years ago, this cataclysmic event spread lava and sediment-rich ash far and wide. And, most abundantly, in the Klamath Basin– which lies just south of the former mountain. Centuries of rain and snowmelt settled into the crater of Mount Mazama, forming a pristine body of water. Natural cracks and leaks led to water drainage, which now supplies local streams and rivers that feed water to Upper Klamath Lake.
Surrounded by forest, rolling hills and beautiful snow-capped mountains, Upper Klamath Lake is nestled in the high desert habitat of Klamath Falls, Oregon. This is a place where both nature and wildlife thrive. Blessed by a low carbon footprint, Klamath Lake is the perfect home for New Earth’s not-so-secret ingredient, Wild Microalgae. It’s clean water supply, mineral-rich bed of sediment, and low exposure to negative human contact make for the perfect, and only, ecosystem in which Wild Microalgae can flourish.
