OUR HEART AND SOUL
REMAINS UNCHANGED SINCE 1994

People and planet before profit has been our mission from the outset - long before it was a trend.

Our belief in business as a force for good combined with our passion for health and wellbeing through natural and organic ingredients, evolved into a nutritional supplement and skincare brand, founded in the UK in 1994.

As well as products to be proud of, we’re humbled to have changed the lives of thousands of people worldwide, offering everyone the power to benefit from AquaSource products by sharing them with others through flexible, family-friendly work alongside a huge serving of fun and great lifestyle rewards. What’s not to love?

OUR STORY BEGAN WITH ORGANIC ALGAE

Why algae?

For hundreds of years, scientists have studied algae in its many forms, both as a food source and a supplement, providing us with a deep knowledge of its astounding nutritional benefits.

At the core of our products is one of the best organic blue-green algae in the world, known as “blue-green algae” (Aphanizomenon Flos-Aquae or AFA).

What is so special about AquaSource Organic Algae?

Our Organic Algae has remarkable properties and is officially classified as a Superfood. This is because it’s an extremely efficient, nutrient-rich food source, providing significant amounts of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals.

Its superior nutritional qualities may also support the body’s natural recovery process and help to prolong a more productive lifestyle.

Where is it sourced?

The highest quality organic blue-green algae is found in Upper Klamath Lake in the Cascade Mountains, Southern Oregon, USA.

Fed by no less than seventeen pure mountain streams and geothermal springs, this ancient lake boasts the most mineral-rich alkaline waters in the world.

The algae found here contains such a rich source of a wide range of nutrients that nothing equals its nutritional profile. It’s a blue-green miracle!

Its nutritional wonders include:

  • Vitamin B12 - increases energy and reduces fatigue. It supports a healthy digestive system, nervous system, and normal cognitive function.
  • Vitamin B5 - aids your metabolism, helps maintain healthy skin, and supports your nervous system to help reduce stress.
  • Vitamin C - reduces fatigue and contributes to better cognitive function. It’s essential to your immune system and necessary for collagen - the main structural protein found in connective tissue.
  • Vitamin E - protects the cells from oxidative stress.
  • Iron - necessary for good muscle function, essential to the formation of haemoglobin and promotes cognitive function.

QUALITY AT THE HEART OF OUR PROCESS

quolity-of-our-process-img

While more conventional drying techniques can damage and degrade ingredients by exposing them to very high temperatures, our algae is virtually untouched from source to supplement due to our unique BioActive Dehydration® process.

An ambient temperature spray preserves and dries our hero ingredient to a powder at less than 41° C (106° F). By keeping heat exposure to a minimum, we aim to maximise the effectiveness of our ingredients and their nutrients, along with their natural colour, flavour and aroma.

DELIVERING A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

Getting our priorities right comes naturally.
We make a conscious effort to reduce our environmental impact and to focus on actions that offer the greatest opportunity for tangible change – from how we source our ingredients right through to delivery.

MAKING A POSITIVE DIFFERENCE

The LightSource Charity was founded in 2014 to focus on uplifting projects that improve the lives of children up to the age of 18. AquaSource donates 10% of its profit after tax to support their phenomenal work.

Through the 'I Love My School' project, the charity is passionate about building a better future for children by transforming schools from dull, uninspiring spaces to what many students now refer to as their ‘second home.’

LightSource Charity trustee, Albena Spurling, takes inspiration from the children’s own ideas and, using her creative flair, applies bright colours, images, quotations, and educational information to photo-wallpaper in schools. The children are hands-on in helping to design and improve their classrooms, giving them the power to make a difference to their quality of life and making schools brighter places for the next generation to thrive.

  • 80 schools across Bulgaria are improved
  • 75,000 students benefited
  • 2,450 classrooms transformed

Registered Charity Number 1168515 in England and Wales.
