Known as the ‘jewel of the ocean,’ Marine Phytoplankton is a vitamin-rich algae and all-in-one superfood.
A baseline of the marine life food chain, it is consumed by all creatures, from tiny invertebrates to the world’s largest mammal, the blue whale. With the ability to reproduce quickly, it makes for a highly sustainable health supplement, full of essential vitamins, for humans and animals alike.
Here at Mountainlife, we source our phytoplankton from the depths of an ancient saltwater borehole. This pure and untouched source is free from toxins, heavy metals and pollutants. What’s more the microalgae is packed full of phytochemicals and a whole host of essential minerals that optimise the human body.
Marine phytoplankton is supercharged with over 72 trace iconic minerals, amino acid strains, B vitamins, long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, proteins and cellular fibres. It also contains iodine and chlorophyll.
B Vitamins - The building blocks of a healthy body, B vitamins have a direct impact on our energy levels, brain function and cell metabolism.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids - Help to lower blood pressure, reduce triglycerides and reduce the chance of heart attacks and strokes.
Chlorophyll - Known to stimulate the immune system, energise the body and detoxify the blood.
Beyond providing nutritious seafood, marine life has long been used for medicinal purposes. While Phytoplankton is an important food source for marine creatures, thanks to recent technology, it is now bioavailable for humans too. Essentially, we can skip one step in the food chain and are no longer strictly dependent on fish for our omega fatty acids. Phytoplankton provides a vegetarian and vegan-friendly alternative.
Of the 40,000 species of marine phytoplankton, only a few are fit and beneficial for human consumption. For years, microbiologists and nutritionists have researched the species and found ‘Nannochloropsis Gaditana’ phytoplankton to offer the best nutritional profile for humans. This marine phytoplankton has the ability to transform sea water, natural warmth, sunlight and carbon dioxide into bioavailable vitamins, proteins, amino acids and carbohydrates. Pretty impressive, don’t you think?
Marine Phytoplankton replenishes the body’s natural energy source by fuelling it at a cellular level. It’s commonly used as a health supplement for chronic fatigue, as it delivers ATP (as well as AGB and ADB) directly to the cells, bypassing the need for mitochondrial function.
Marine Phytoplankton contains Superoxide Dismutase, an enzyme that helps the body to expel harmful oxygen molecules. It also plays an important role in regulating and strengthening the immune system.
The iodine and chlorophyll in Marine Phytoplankton help to detox the body and organs from heavy metal build-ups.
According to a pilot study by the University of Utah, marine phytoplankton has the ability to improve symptoms of depression if taken on a regular basis. If you are looking for a natural way to lift your mood, it is well worth adding phytoplankton into your diet.
Marine Phytoplankton is beneficial and suitable for both humans and pets.
We suggest mixing ½ tsp of Mountainlife Marine Phytoplankton in water as a starting dose or adding it to a healthy superfood smoothie. Phytoplankton is best taken on an empty stomach.
For children and pets, we recommend reducing the dose to ¼ tsp. Mix it with water for children or add to fruit juice. You can also sprinkle it on your pet’s food.
Our Marine Phytoplankton powder is made from 100% natural filtered and cultured marine phytoplankton. Once sourced from the ancient seawater borehole, it is carefully processed at a pristine coastal facility in Europe to ensure it retains the vital phytochemicals from its native seawater.
