What Are Marine Phytoplankton Health Benefits?

Watch the interview with Ian Clark about the health benefits of marine phytoplankton, specifically the Nannochloropsis gaditana.

There is something different about marine phytoplankton. It is the food source at the very base of the entire food chain on Earth. It is the most basic form of life, converting sunlight (energy) and minerals (building blocks) into living stored energy. You could think of chlorophyll as the photons slowed down to a stand-still, ready to release their energy when ingested. There are thousands of species of marine phytoplankton, some are great for krill, others for fish. The bigger animals depend on the little ones as a source of food, as a source of energy. The Phytoplankton is the life form that feeds them all. Some are much more suited to human nutrition than others.

After 30 years of research, and tens of millions of dollars spent, a team of European doctors, marine scientists, and microbiologists have isolated a strain of micro-algae that contains outstanding nutritional values of multiple nutrients, including all the essential amino acids, all the essential fatty acids (including the important omega 3s), all the trace minerals, vitamins and hard to get antioxidants, phospholipids, electrolytes, nucleic acids, enzymes, co-enzymes, in the perfect proportions needed to repair and rejuvenate your brain, heart, lungs, immune and digestive systems right at the cellular level. That means it has a great chance to positively impact any degenerative health condition. It can be grown in a Bio-Reactor, not in the open ocean with its increasing pollution. You can stop worrying about radiation, or industrial effluent. They use only highly purified sea water.

Chlorophyll – the green pigment that activates photosynthesis and produces oxygen. Chlorophyll produces cancer-fighting carotenoids, purifies the blood, supplies magnesium, neutralizes free radicals before they can cause oxidative damage and accelerate aging, and helps regulate more than 300 metabolic processes.

Carotenoids – rich in disease-fighting carotenoids, such as zeaxanthin, canthxanthin and astaxanthin, which strengthen the immune system, optimize gene expression, preserve the lining of the digestive tract, improve the resiliency of the skin, and defend against cancer.

DHA – predominant structural fatty acid in the central nervous system that supports brain development and maintains a healthy retina. According to Dr. Oz, DHA is the most important food supplement you can take, and the Nannochloropsis gaditana strain contains more DHA than any other food source!

EPA – an essential fatty acid that works synergistically with DHA to produce nearly every nutrient the body needs. Together, they lower the risk of heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, cognitive decline, macular degeneration (disease of the retina) and colon and prostate cancers.

Vitamins – Nannochloropsis gaditana contains your favorites: Vitamin C (which protects against cancer, immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease and macular degeneration) and vitamin B complex, which is crucial to the metabolism of fats, carbs, protein, and to the smooth functioning of the nervous system.

The common health benefits of marine phytoplankton are to regenerate all tissue cells, purify your body of toxins, and provide a jolt of natural energy when added to a drink.
