Already since the 1940s there have been thousands of research projects done with many types of algae. Many of the projects have been published as scientific papers or in various journals as literature. Many of the projects were performed with animals as it is much faster with some species to verify the results, and as it is also much easier to avoid the deviation effects from placebo. Much of the research was also performed with human subjects. Ultimately, when taking into account the hundreds of tests and large trials performed by Dr. Michael Kiriac in Russia, adding the thousands of other research projects from all over the world, one can easily come to the conclusion that the benefits of algae are proven at the cellular level and that the resulting symptoms of health are observed at the organ, or energy or skin, and surface level, and can be diagnosed or observed rationally.
It took decades to bring BIO-ALGAE CONCENTRATES to the market: decades of studies, rigorous testing for safety and efficacy and monitoring for long-term effects. Now, we can proudly say that BIO-ALGAE CONCENTRATES are safe and effective.
1974: Research Begins
Beginning in the early 70s, the Academy of Sciences and the Ministry of Nutrition in the former Soviet Russia (USSR) invested more than 20,000 person-years and millions of dollars in research and development to produce bio-algae concentrates that would hold extraordinary nutritional properties. Consisting of blends of the best algae among thousands investigated, these concentrates were developed, tested, proven and have now been used for agricultural and human applications for more than 25 years. These research efforts were led by Michael Kiriac, who has dedicated his life to the finding of natural solutions for human and animal health.
Algae Research by Michael Kiriac, PhD
“This jar of bio-algae has more nutrients than truckloads of Alfalfa” - Mr. Kiriac, National TV, 1985
Facilities for 600 workers, 200 researchers and 1.5 million egg-laying chickens in 20 buildings
1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster
The Chernobyl nuclear power plant reactor exploded on April 26th 1986, creating chaos and extreme suffering, but also allowing for the first experiment in the use of bio-algae concentrates with humans.
The disaster was a major event in the life of Mr. Kiriac and his family, and of course for the USSR at large. War measures were enacted for all of Russia after the explosion and were maintained for many months. Mr. Kiriac and his family lived 500 km (about 300 miles) from the epicenter and were subjected to direct radiation from the travelling cloud, as well as contamination of some of the local food and animal produces.
When disaster struck at Chernobyl, Ukraine, it was not only the region around the reactor that was affected. Neighbor state Belarus received 70% of the radioactive fallout and 23% of its territory became contaminated. Thousands of cleanup workers, adults and children were victims of radiation poisoning, which caused disastrous health effects such as degeneration of spinal fluids, liver and bone marrow, as well as anemia, loss of vision and appetite, and a severely compromised immune system. This led to many future and ongoing illnesses including birth defects, leukemia, cancer and thyroid disease.
Due to his successes using Bio-Algae Concentrates with animals and cancers, Mr. Kiriac was given the opportunity to test its effects on several children and adults suffering from radiation ills. Some observed results were :
- With leukemia, dangerously low white blood cell counts were observed reduced starting after 20 days
- Reduction in children’s urine radioactivity levels was measused at less then 50% in less then 20 days
- A general sense of renewed energy and healing
Many of those patients who consumed Bio-Algae Concentrates experienced great improvements in their health compared to those who did not receive algae. Amazingly, several patients in advanced stages of disease who took Bio-Algae Concentrates recovered even with the continuous presence of radiation contamination in their body, their food and water.
1980 Astaxanthin Reseach by Dr. Michael Kiraic
There are thousands of microalgae on Earth. In 1973, when still at the Academy of Science, Dr. Kiriac began looking into algae as a solution to various health problems. There was evidence that algae could slow the progress of cancer and increase energy and health in animals and humans. In the 15 years following his studies, he investigated hundreds of strains of algae in a formal scientific setting and had the luxury of using hundreds, thousands, and eventually millions of animals to confirm his findings. He learned early on that certain microalgae carry extraordinary nutritional diversity and density. Some microalgae are the most efficient producers of sunlight energy of all plants. Already in 1980, 30 years ago, Dr. Kiriac was studying the haematococcus pluvialis red algae for its extraordinary astaxanthin content when none of his peers had even heard of it. After experiments using astaxanthin as a isolate stand alone supplement as compared to experiments with astaxanthin as part of the Bio-Algae blends, Dr. Kiriac opted for always using it as part of the overall blend. In this way the benefits of consuming the whole food blend as part of the daily regimen could continue for life without concerns of toxicity when using astaxanthin as a separate.
1999: North American Validation
From 1999 to 2000, working with the research department of McGill University in Montreal, Mr. Kiriac was able to reproduce the poultry productivity results achieved in the U.S.S.R. Working with two tests groups of 13,000 chickens each, the group with bio-algae concentrates added to their grain demonstrated the expected results over the control group not fed bio-algae concentrates: larger eggs, stronger shells, longer egg-laying period, more eggs per month and no diseases. This test was performed twice for further accuracy.
During the 2000 Winter Games held in St. Petersburg Russia, bio-algae concentrates were compared with two other supplements – Ginseng and a Chinese herb. It was reported by the Russian hockey team as the best for: general pain reduction, particularly knee pain as well as faster and better recuperation of energy and blood oxidation after games. Igor Kravcuk and Pavel Bure, team members and NHL players, sponsored the test and carried BSF to the team in Russia, as well as reported these successes to Mr. Kiriac in Montreal.
For the next two years, additional research was performed by independent researchers at a Medicinal Research University in Quebec City, this time on the effect of bio-algae concentrates on prostate cancer and leukemia. The results showed that bio-algae concentrates were more efficient when taken in small amounts administered frequently throughout the day acting as a trigger for the body’s self-healing power.
