# Marine Phytoplankton is a single-celled aquatic organism, or micro-algae. It is not a plant, seaweed, fungus or herb. Thousands of species of phytoplankton grow abundantly in oceans around the world and are the foundation of the marine food chain.

# Marine Phytoplankton can be described as “The Jewel Of The Ocean”. It contains a unique combination of life-sustaining nutrients and antioxidants including: essential fatty acids, amino acids, protein, vitamins, chlorophyll, minerals, trace elements, & phytonutrients.

# Marine Phytoplankton may be the most nutrient dense food on Earth. The primitive character of this micro-algae’s cellular structure gives it a number of advantages over higher plants and animals as a food source. Nearly the entire organism is nutritious, with minimal indigestible structures. By contrast, typically less than half the dry weight of raw fruit and vegetables have any nutrient value.

# According to NASA, Marine Phytoplankton produces about 90% of the Oxygen in the air that we breathe. Marine Phytoplankton also absorbs most of the Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere, helping to mantain a balanced ecosystem which is essential for a healthy planet.

# More than 99% of all creatures that live in the ocean depend either directly or indirectly on Marine Phytoplankton for their survival. Thanks to this micro-algae, some species of Whale can enjoy an active and reproductive life for up to 200 years.

# In the wild, Marine Phytoplankton is invisible to the naked eye. However, under certain conditions this micro-algae can be seen from a space satellite.

# Marine Phytoplankton exhibits superior photosynthetic efficiency, using light approximately three times more efficiently than higher plants. Micro-algae are among the most productive organisms on the planet.

# The blue whale is king of the seas. It’s diet consists of marine phytoplankton and a species of krill which, also eat phytoplankton. The blue whale can travel hundreds of miles without rest.

# Phytoplankton have an alkaline pH. Many diets are high in refined sugars, soda pop, and farmed large animals which cause the body to be in a state of acidity. Alkaline foods are necessary to balance the body’s ph.
