What are the benefits of phytoplankton?

Phytoplankton is a microalgae that is found in oceans throughout the world. Like their relatives on land, these single-celled organisms have the ability to carry out photosynthesis, producing about half of the atmosphere’s oxygen. They’re the primary “producers”of the ocean because they’re the organisms that form the base of  every food chain in the world’s oceans.

Depending upon the species, phytoplankton can contain a large array of nutrients, including omega 3 fatty acids, amino acids, carotenoids, antioxidants, nucleic acids, and an assortment of essential vitamins and minerals. And, all of these nutrients are 100% bioavailable to your body.  As a whole, phytoplankton are one of the most potent superfoods on the planet, 100 times more powerful than blue algae, resveratrol, and acai berries.

Scientific research indicates that there is substantial evidence for the health benefits of phytoplankton. UMAC-CORE is one of the best supplements containing marine phytoplankton.  Offered by Vibrant Nutraceuticals, UMAC-CORE contains multiple species of wild-harvested marine phytoplankton from the Strait of Georgia, off the coast of Vancouver, Canada. VN’s proprietary blend of ocean derived amino acids and minerals is an excellent source of important micronutrients.  

So, the question you may have is what can phytoplankton do for you? Restoring optimal health by helping to fill in some of the nutritional gaps in your diet is what phytoplankton is good for.
