Phytoplankton has perhaps the most benefits of any superfood. Its intense chlorophyll content and its microscopic nano-particulate size means it brings oxygen into all parts of the body, even crossing the blood/brain barrier, quickly.

About – Phytoplankton are microscopic one celled organisms, too small to be seen by the naked eye, but when they are in high enough numbers appear as a greenish discoloration in water. They inhabit the upper layer of water, as they need the sun to get energy through photosynthesis to reproduce. Phytoplankton is responsible for half of all the photosynthesis activity on Earth and thus is responsible for half of the oxygen available in Earth’s atmosphere. Phytoplankton forms the base of the food chain, providing food for thousands of oceanic species. They were the first living organisms on Earth and contain every nutrient needed to feed all life and plant forms on Earth.

Nutrition – Phytoplankton is 50 percent protein and is considered a complete protein with all the amino acids the body needs to receive through diet. It is a good source of omega 3 fatty acids and contains a wide range of vitamins and minerals including most B vitamins and is a great source of iron. For minerals it is also high in zinc, copper, magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium, calcium and iodine. Minerals are crucial for good health. They are required for all metabolic processes in the body, for the formation of your blood & bones, for proper composition of your body fluids and they are critically important for healthy nerve function. Most people today are very mineral deficient and so consuming phytoplankton, being extremely mineral rich, is a great way to get these necessary minerals.

The intense chlorophyll content of phytoplankton increases oxygen uptake which means more fuel to muscles leading to improved performance and endurance. Some of the other reported benefits include: enhanced brain function, improved immune function, antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial effects, improved cellular repair, radiation protection, cancer protection, detoxification support, allergy and asthma relief, anti-inflammatory support, antioxidant support, improved circulation and improved heart function. Phytoplankton is available at such a small nano-particulate size that it quickly also penetrates the blood/brain barrier feeding the higher master glands located deep in the brain stimulating significant mental clarity. There are hundreds of references in text books detailing the vast array of human health benefits gained through the consumption of marine phytoplankton.
