Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why haven't I ever heard of Phytoplankton before?

A: Although scientists have been studying  the nutritional content of  it for many years now, the problem has always been how do you harvest one of nature's most complete foods without adversely harming the eco-system? In addition to that, it is a single-cell plant and each cell is invisible to the naked eye, so it is not very easy to locate them. Harvesting them is only viable where there are large numbers of these plants all growing together in one place still you would need to drain many millions of tonnes of seawater to harvest sufficient for human needs. This would have the undesirable effect of depleting a valuable resource that all of our marine live so heavily depends upon. The long-term consequences for our planet could well be catastrophic.

Q: So how do you overcome this problem?

A: It was an extraordinary piece of good fortune (or divine intervention?) that enabled the world to finally gain access to one of Nature's most elusive food sources. In 2004, a shell-fish farmer developed a method of growing Marine Phytoplankton in land based seawater tanks so he could feed the shell-fish he was cultivating for export. The farmer had experimented with many different species of Phytoplankton before perfecting his formula. It was the rapid increase in the quality and growth rate of his shell-fish (including clams, muscles and oysters), that convinced him that he was on to something, although at that stage no one had produced any real evidence that Marine Phytoplankton could benefit human health.

It wasn't until the farmer was diagnosed with a very rare and incurable cancer (Mesothelioma) that he instinctively stuck his fingers into one of the tanks of Phytoplankton and put a small amount of the green paste in his mouth and to eat. The reasoning behind this was that if the algae was good enough for his shell-fish it might just do him some good as well! He continued eating the algae everyday for around two weeks, and then he noticed the pain in his body was subsiding. Surgeons later conducted a biopsy prior to performing a life-threatening operation, and were amazed to discover that the cancerous tumours in his lungs were now benign!

Q: What about algae like Spirulina and Chlorella, are they similar to Marine Phytoplankton?

A: Spirulina and Chlorella do have certain similarities, but they have a different nutritional profile, and normally grow in fresh water rather than sea water. On the other hand, Marine Phytoplankton consists of hundreds of different varieties of single cell micro-algae, and it appears that Phytoplankton is far more easily absorbed by the cells of the body where the nutrients can be of the most benefit. It is interesting to note that over 100,000 of these tine single-celled organisms will fit inside just one drop of water.

Q: How do I know that Marine Phytoplankton is safe to eat?

A: Sample batches of Marine Phytoplankton are regularly tested in a laboratory to ensure that there are no harmful contaminants present, unlike much of the produce that is sold in grocery stores and supermarkets.

Q: I am on medication, should I talk to my Doctor before taking this product?

A: Yes. Although Marine Phytoplankton is a whole food (no additives, colourings or preservatives) it is always recommended that you discuss any changes to your normal diet with your health care professional first. It may be that you can start to reduce your level of medication, but that should be a decision for your Doctor.

Q: If Marine Phytoplankton can help someone with a particular medical condition that I also suffer from, can I expect similar results?

A: It is important to stress that Marine Phytoplankton is a highly nutritious food, therefore it cannot directly treat or cure any illness or disease. What it can do is feed the cells of the body with a quite remarkable combination of vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients. It is then possible for the body to function much more effectively in the vital task of cell growth and regeneration. You should also be aware that what works for one person may not necessarily work exactly the same for another. However, medical opinion is now moving towards the idea that 'complete food' (that is diet containing everything the cells in our body need to stay healthy), is the best way to help fight disease and illness.

Q: Marine Phytoplankton contains some elements I've never heard of before, are they compatible with our own body chemistry?
