Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (AFA – “The Invisible Flower of the Water”), grows wildly in a uniquely pristine volcanic lake which contains up to ten meters of mineral deposits. These deposits make AFA algae the living thing richest in minerals in addition to its impressive array of vitamins, amino acids, and essential fatty acids. From AFA come the two extracts that compose Gennisi®.



Aphanizomenon flos-aquae (Latin for “The Invisible Flower of the Water”), or AFA for short, is a single-cell algae without an actual cell wall. It is one of the first lifeforms on Earth.

Primitive algae are highly efficient photo synthesizers—much better than plants. Algae utilize light energy from the sun, carbon dioxide from the air, and hydrogen from the water to synthesize proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids. AFA grows only in the wild and is far superior to any other algae on the planet.

It is situated at the beginning of the food chain, providing perfect nutrition and an impressive display of:

  • 65 vitamins and minerals
  • amino acids
  • essential fatty acids

More importantly is its ability to produce unique phytonutrients, such as:

  • phycocyanin
  • phenylethylamine

A revolutionary and powerful nutritional supplement that has been shown to boost stem cell production in the body.

Gennisi® is composed of select algal concentrations called phenylethylamine (PEA) and phycocyanins (PC) that provide the full range of nutrients found in this blue-green algae.

Indeed, it could be nature’s perfect food.

AFA is unique among all food-grade algae in that it also metabolizes molecular nitrogen from the air to produce proteins and other nitrogen-containing bio-molecules. The extremely tiny AFA cell is truly awe-inspiring.

We work with the harvesters of this wild-grown, ancient strain of blue-green micro-algae from the pristine waters of Upper Klamath Lake in Southern Oregon. Gennisi® is harvested from the deepest waters of Upper Klamath Lake under strict quality control and GMP guidelines, thus yielding the purest and most potent form AFA available.

Our team of qualified professionals categorize, purify, extract, and standardize the key components of AFA. We test each batch to make sure we meet all the standards of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in terms of toxins in the final formula of Gennisi®.
