Marine phyto plankton is a very small single celled micro algae that makes up a quarter of all vegetation on the globe (land and sea) and is responsible for 90 per cent of all oxygen production, (more than all forests) on the planet (according to NASA) It is nine times smaller than a red blood cell making it the smallest food source that is known to us anywhere. It has a very impressive nutritional breakdown. It contains all amino acids, vitamins, minerals, vital trace elements, anti oxidants, phospholipids, nucleic acids, enzymes etc. Another incredible thing about marine phyto plankton is that it does not need to be put through the mitochondrial ‘machinery’ of our cells in order to be used as energy! It contains nucleotides that feed our cells directly with Adenosine Triphosphate which most food we eat has to be turned into in order for our body to use it as energy. An analogy would be, like going abroad with a universal currency that permitted you to spend money with out the necessity to go to a bank or a bureau de change.
We are very intrigued by it’s profile of essential polyunsaturated oils, particularly it’s EPA and DHA content. The whole food algae as opposed to the liquid ‘oceans alive’ product contains 10 per cent EPA by dry weight matter.
