- Phytoplankton® - MARINE PHYTOPLANKTON
Marine Phytoplankton is a marine (salt water) micro-algae rich in OMEGA 3 a long chain fatty acid called Eicosapentaenoic Acid commonly known as "EPA". It is also packed with over 65 nutrients, enzymes, vitamins including B12, unique antioxidants electrolytes phytonutrients and chlorophyll.
Marine Phytoplankton is the primary food source in the ocean food chain on which all marine life is dependent. Without Phytoplankton Omega 3 would not be present in fish and krill. Not only that, but these micro-organisms produce more oxygen than all the Earth's rain forests combined! As a food source phytoplankton are the tiniest plant based nutrient on the planet - some 5-7 times smaller than the human red blood cell! This power packed food source can readily pass into our cells mitochondria without the need to be broken down or assimilated through regular digestion. Phytoplankton also has the best source of Superoxide dismutase, (SOD) SOD is the most powerful antioxidant enzyme that plays a role reducing oxidative damage and inflammation, and has been shown to be a Heavy Metal Detox carrier.
Finally, at the University of Rhode Island professor Yuzuru Shimizu conducted some studies that evaluate sea based organisms that exhibit anti-tumor forming properties. A single celled plankton known as dinoflagellates have shown to have cancer killing potential in The National Cancer Institute tests.
Marine Phytoplankton VS Fish Oil.
The Ultana (Marine) Phytoplankton has been specially selected because of the rich source of EPA in bio-available phospholipids form. It is vegan, sustainable and packed in its purest form. Fish oils are expensive to extract and run the risk of going rancid during or post production. There is also a risk of mercury contamination in fish due to ocean pollution.
HOW DOES PHYTOPLANKTON COMPARE WITH SPIRULINA OR CHLORELLA?
Spirulina and Chlorella are fresh water algae. They contain chlorophyll, proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals but they lack the high levels of EPA content and phospholipids present in phytoplankton.
Ultana Phytoplankton is carefully grown in closed heat resistant glass photo bio-reactors. This production ensures cleanliness, purity and no contamination that can occur in the open pond method or in cheaper plastic bio-reactors. Our strain of phytoplankton has been grown in specific climatic conditions to ensure the production of Polar Lipids that other strains do not carry.
