Bio-Algae Concentrates 20,000 Person Years of Russian Research

Beginning in the early 70’s, the Academy of Science and later the Ministry of Nutrition of the former Soviet Union invested more than 20,000 person-years of research and development into producing nutrient-rich blends of algae, coined Bio-Algae Concentrates (BAC). This patient and innovative research delivered blends of algae that held extraordinary nutritional properties.

Consisting of complementary and synergistic mixes of the best algae selected among thousands investigated, BAC far exceeds the benefits of any single alga, algae blend, green food or superfood known today. These concentrates were studied and tested in large animal populations and were also used in the real life production of millions of chickens, thousands of pigs, minks and dairy cows. These tests began a decade before and continued long after the 1990 breakdown of the former Soviet Republic.

In 2001, I wrote a book detailing these twenty years of intensive Soviet research. This book also tells the dramatic story of Michael Kiriac, PhD who pioneered algae research during those years as the principal scientist for the Academy of Science. His research led to the extraordinary algae blends in BAC, as well as the innovation of hydroponic technologies, some of which were patented and are still in use today.

I invite you to read about this extraordinary achievement and to take an inside look at the science and politics within the Soviet Union into the 90’s.

BAC was tested extensively with over twenty animal species, including rats, rabbits, birds, fish, cats, dogs, goats, and horses. I will relate only those projects that are considered undeniable proof of concept due to the number of animals involved. These blind study cases provide compelling evidence for the benefits of using BAC.

Chicken Research

The most compelling results for the effectiveness of BAC were demonstrated at a large poultry research center in Moldova from 1985 to 1995. A farm with a starting population of one million chickens was used as a principal research center in a production environment to demonstrate the prevention of cancer. In those ten years with BAC, the farm’s population grew to 1.5 million and a 20% gain in overall productivity was achieved.

Here are some of the benefits that were seen:

  • Eradication of Marek’s disease
  • Greater vitality, reduction of disease
  • Larger eggs with stronger shells due to higher calcium content
  • Viability increased from 90% to 98% (birth mortality dropped from 10% to less than 2%)
  • Increased egg laying period from 17 months to 24 months (due to reduction in bone loss)
  • 50 additional eggs per chicken, per year
  • Higher nutritive value of the eggs
  • Better tasting meat and eggs
Dairy Cow Research

In Russia, many clinical trials showed significant results with cows using BAC. A large trial was done on a dairy farm with 15,000 cows. This farm, which had been affected by cancers and low productivity, saw significant benefits after introducing BAC. Here is a partial list of observations from this trial:

  • Increased viability of donor’s embryos and resulting fecundity
  • Increased spermatozoid count and motility (4-5 times)
  • Increased instances of multiple births (twins)
  • Increased viability of newborns
  • Increased butterfat and protein percentage in milk
  • Extension of lactation periods decreasing turnaround for new cows
  • Reduction of daily protein/feed by 10%-15% with no decrease in milk
  • Increased calcium absorption and retention, reduction of bone loss
  • Reduction and prevention of metabolic mastitis by over 90%
  • Faster healing of mastitis with less loss in lactation time
  • Prevention and relief from arthritis
  • Fewer hormonal disorders
  • Reduction of thyroid problems in calves and quicker healing
  • Increased fertility, fecundity and viability
  • Increased immunity and prevention of tumors and cancer
  • Accelerated healing and tissue repair, strength and flexibility
  • Prevention and reduction of degenerative diseases and associated costs
  • Prevention of encephalopathy through increased immunity
  • Balanced mood and less excitability
  • Improved digestion and detoxification
  • Elimination of the use of antibiotics and growth hormones
  • Healthier and better tasting milk and meat

Pig Research

A pig farm with 54,000 pigs near Voronege was plagued with various cancers and low productivity. The following results were observed:

  • Increased spermatozoid count and motility (4 times)
  • Increased size of pig litter
  • Increased viability of piglets
  • Increased fertility
  • Healthier and better tasting meat

Mink Research

In Siberia, hundreds of mink farms containing a total of more than 10,000 animals were affected by various cancers and low productivity, adversely affecting this important Soviet industry. The following results were observed:

  • Increased viability of donor’s embryos and resulting fecundity
  • Increased spermatozoid count and motility (4 times)
  • Significant increase in litter size
  • Increased viability of new borns
  • Shinier and healthier coats
  • Increased fertility

Dog Research

In this informal study, hundreds of dogs, the majority of which were German Shepherds, were observed over the course of several years. The dogs were used in Moldova to guard the poultry research farm from foxes and other predators. The following results were noted:

  • Increased litter size
  • Increased viability of puppies
  • Minimal health problems as compared with the neighboring farm’s dog population
  • Increased fertility
