Much like chlorella and spirulina, marine phytoplankton is a single-celled organism that’s been on planet Earth for literally billions of years. It is the life form responsible for creating an oxygen-rich environment on our planet. Without it, the atmosphere would have remains inhospitable to humans and other mammals that depend on oxygen, so it is no exaggeration to say that marine phytoplankton created the opportunity for human life on Earth. (That’s worth noting because it turns out that marine phytoplankton can also protect human life on Earth right now!)
Like all microalgae that grow in the ocean, this particular strain of marine phytoplankton (there are more than 40,000 strains of microalgae, but this one was chosen for its potent health benefits) is rich in chlorophyll, trace minerals (from the ocean water) and carotenoids. It is the carotenoids that give it color, and as anyone who has been paying attention to nutrition already knows, the pigmentation nutrients are the medicines!
Just like with fresh vegetables, it is the color itself that provides the most potent medicine. The purple anthocyanins in purple cabbage, for example, are anti-cancer nutrients. The phycocyanin in spirulina is also a super potent anti-cancer nutrient. The carotenoids in carrots protect the nervous system, and the red pigments in astaxanthin are miraculous fat-soluble antioxidants that give your muscles and tissues superhuman-like protection against aging and oxidation.
Marine Phytoplankton contains hundreds of different carotenoids, minerals, amino acids and nutrients. And compared to land-based plants (which are usually mineral deficient), ocean-based plants are naturally rich in ocean water minerals, including all the trace minerals that can prevent and reverse serious disease.
For example, selenium halts cancer tumors. Zinc accelerates tissue repair in the body. Magnesium helps reverse heart disease and neurological disorders. Strontium is the “secret” mineral for building strong bones. Chromium helps boost insulin sensitivity which helps regulate blood sugar. Iodine prevents breast cancer and regulates thyroid function, which ends out-of-control appetite cravings… And the list goes on! These minerals are the foundational secrets to lasting health, and they’re all found in ocean-based marine phytoplankton.
They’re also found in seaweed, of course, which is why eating lots of seaweed, dulse, kelp, nori and other sea vegetables is such a smart health strategy. Unfortunately, the American palette doesn’t include seaweed, and virtually all Americans (and Canadians, Brits, and Aussies) remain dangerously deficient in key trace minerals.
