What is Marine Phytoplankton?

Marine Phytoplankton 💚

Probably you've never heard of this mysterious superfood. That must change! Why? Because Marine Phytoplankton might be the most nutritious superfood available! It is not only super healthy, it also has a unique story. 

Marine Phytoplankton is a single-celled (green) micro algae that grows in salt water. It is known to form the basis of the food chain in the ocean. All ocean's inhabitants depend, directly or indirectly on Marine Phytoplankton! But that's not it. According to NASA, Marine Phytoplankton produces between 50%-90% of the oxygen we breathe. In other words, it supplies much more oxygen than all trees together. Quite impressive, right?! 🤩

But let's dive into the most interesting part, namely, the nutrient-rich profile of the superfood! Marine Phytoplankton is truly a powerhouse. It is full of nutrients that benefit your health: 

  • Omega-3 EPA
    It is the source of Omega-3 fatty acids, not fish oil

  • Rich protein source 
    Containing all essential amino acids

  • Vitamins
    8 vitamins 

  • Minerals
    Rich source of iodine and iron  

  • Pigments
    Chlorophyll aβ-carotene

    And more! 

    This is why it is one of the most nutrient dense superfoods available! And we are proud of it! 

    What makes our Marine Phytoplankton unique? 

    Our Marine Phytoplankton is sustainably grown in a fully controlled photobioreactor facility. Located at the edge of the Oostvaardersplassen (a nature reserve near Amsterdam), our micro algae is grown under pure conditions. By using ancient seawater (130.000 years old) without contamination and heavy metals, we guarantee the cream of the crop! But that's not it. No herbicides and pesticides are used. Only pure and natural conditions ensure that the Marine Phytoplankton can grow naturally and build its healthy nutrients!  

    Normally we would now sum up how this will benefit your health! But, we will write separate blogs that highlights each of the 9 key potential health benefits of Marine Phytoplankton. For now, please refer to the FAQ page to understand more of the 9 key health benefits.
