Changes in Latitudes Changes in Chlorella Attitudes
After a year of having several quality supplements on the market the most interesting statistic has been the amount of people buying chlorella in southern states.  At one point 40% of our Organic Chlorella Tablets were being mailed to Florida alone.  Population is only a minor factor in this.  In fact, an overwhelming majority of chlorella orders have gone to Virginia and beyond; with gulf states showing a huge interest when considering population.  I've actually developed an equation using latitude as a variable that is somewhat pertinent to who is a potential buyer;  Chl = 2(-1(Lat)+1)-.75  meaning the propensity for someone in...

Importance of Telomeres
Posted by James Quinn

Importance of Telomeres

   Telomeres are the repetitive nucleoid sequences at the ends of chromosomes.  In verterbrates this sequence is repeated around 2500 times.  These sequences protect the ends of chromozomes, preventing them from degradation or fusing with another chromosome.  They do not contain genetic information but instead protect the genetic information of a chromozone by functioning like a book end or similarly to the plastic ends of shoelaces.  During cell division a little bit of the telomeres are lost because the cell can not fully replicate itself; this is because RNA primers attach slightly ahead on the lagging strand and miss a portion....

Catskills Gold; Our New Beeswax Lip Balm a Safe Alternative to Synthetic Ingredients
  All of our beeswax comes from local Catskill Mountain Region beekeepers and our balm has a very faint honey smell.  Unlike other lip balms, our odor comes from nature, not chemicals.  The hive is the only factory!    Shea butter is an ivory or sometimes yellowish extract from the nut of the African Shea Tree.  It is a fat that is currently very popular in cosmetics here in the United States.  But just as 99% of vitamins sold here are syntheric and made using chemicals, so is the shea butter market.  Virtually all shea butter products from soaps to moisturizers...

Chlorella For Hangovers

Chlorella For Hangovers

   Chlorella is literally the greenest most chlorophyll packed substance on Earth.  Based on its abundance of nutrients and antioxidants it is easy to see that it would be ideal for preventing hangovers.  The earliest research on the effects of chlorella on hangovers was in 1996 at the Sapporo Medical University in Japan.    This study determined that consuming five grams of chlorella two hours before an evening of drinking lowered the effects of a hangover in 96% of participants.  By doing this before drinking one is loading the liver as well as the cardiovascular system with many nutrients that are depleted by the...

HIV Studies Show Possible Benefits of Spirulina Use
This article focuses on two studies conducted several years ago by the Institute of Nutritional Sciences at Germany’s University of Giessen dealing with adult females in Africa living with the human immunodeficiency virus.  Subjects in both test groups responded better to the Spirulina diet even though the placebo group was given a supplement that was created to have a similar nutritional (soybean) composition to that of the experimental group.  Both studies lasted 90 days with the first monitoring 72 women who were given five grams of the respective supplements daily and were tested for the following at the beginning and end it. CD4 T-cell counts (higher good)...

What is Chlorella?

What is Chlorella?

 Chlorella is a microscopic fresh water single-cell green algae that relies heavily on photosynthesis.  It ideally thrives in high sunlight, high temperature and high nitrate conditions.  It is literally the greenest organism on earth; hence the greenest food on earth.  It is known to have been in existence for over a billion years and was a great source of nutrition for very early multicellular organisms (even our ancestors).  This was a central reason for Life, Not Labs choosing it as our first dietary supplement in an Organic Tablet form.  Basically, when we first became multicellular; we were sponges.  Food flowed through us. ...

Major Studies Show How Omega 3 Fish Oils Benefit All Cells in the Body
   Omega 3 fish oils have risen to the top of the supplement market in recent years. Countless studies have concluded its many benefits ranging from cardiovascular health to brain function and even skin health.  This research summarily points to the fact that these fatty acids eventually benefit (although residually in some cases) every cell in the human body.  Heart Support Fish as well as their Omega 3 gel cap derivatives contain unsaturated fatty acids; These acids have been shown to lower cholesterol when substituted for saturated fatty acids found in meats.  The main benefits of fatty acids have been shown to be the omega...

Food Based Vitamins Provide Superior Nutrients over their Synthetic Counterparts
The main reason life not labs was founded was to present consumers with food based alternatives to the 99% of supplements on the market that are sold using synthetic versions of the naturally occurring molecules in each respective vitamin group. All of the Vitamin C in our Multivitamin comes from acerola cherries. This combination of nutrients has never been pulled off in a one a day capsule so we literally had to find the purest, most vitamin rich organic Acerola on earth. We do this because we want to provide the consumer with the actual vitamins that many people think...

A two year self study of Chlorella's effects on the body
(originally written 12.1.15)  I can easily declare this current two plus years of taking chlorella to be the healthiest period of my life.  It has included stretches during which I have lived on this one food for days at a time as well as periods where I have avoided it entirely to witness the effects of not having it in my system.  Here are my observations- Periods of 7-30 days of taking 2 grams (this is the recommended daily dose of Organic cracked-wall Chlorella available on my website) Higher energy; a lot of this has to do with chlorella's ability to...

Arginine and Citrulline; Our Cardiovascular Systems Batman And Robin
Citrulline can help pick up the slack of nitric oxide production in the blood as humans start to age.  There are countless arginine products on the market.  These are aimed at boosting nitric oxide levels in the blood; but are far less effective when used by people aged 40 and over.  This is because of the deterioration of the tissue used to create nitrtic oxide using the arginine itself; our endothelium.  The endothelium is one cell thick and lines your entire cardiovascular system.  It is the largest secreting tissue in your body and one of its main functions is to convert L-arginine...
