Christian Drapeau, MSc.
Christian Drapeau started nearly 25 years ago when he began studying the aquatic botanical Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA). People consuming AFA reported benefits touching three main aspects of human health: immune and inflammation support, and an increase in mental clarity and energy.
With his research team, Drapeau quickly identified that a polysaccharide from AFA was supporting various aspects of immunity, more specifically the activity and migration capacity of natural Killer Cells (NK Cells). The University of Mississippi also documented immune-stimulant properties of AFA polysaccharide.
Regarding inflammation, as with any other blue-green algae, AFA is a significant source of phycocyanin, which was documented to be a strong COX-2 inhibitor and to reduce inflammation in several models of inflammation. Over the years, phycocyanin was also documented to have anti-cancer properties. Finally, Drapeau documented that AFA is a unique source of phenylethylamine (PEA), a molecule produced by the brain that enhances dopaminergic nervous transmission. Oral intake of PEA has been documented to elevate mood to the point of being anti-depressive, and even to potentially bring beneficial effects in cases of Attention-Deficit Disorder (ADD). On this basis, AFA-based products have been marketed to help children with ADD.
Throughout Drapeau’s continued research, many people consuming AFA reported benefits linked to various aspects of human health that could not be explained via the known biochemistry of AFA. For example, significant benefits touching the functioning of the heart, the pancreas, the liver, and even the brain.
