nutrition has astonished medical experts:
"When you give
the body everything it needs to build healthy new cells
then you get well."
Frequently Asked Questions
Why haven't I ever heard of Phytoplankton before?
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
So how do you overcome this problem?
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.
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!

What about algae like Spirulina and Chlorella, are they
similar to Marine Phytoplankton?
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.
How do I know that Marine Phytoplankton is safe to eat?
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.
I am on medication, should I talk to my Doctor before
taking this product?
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.
If Marine Phytoplankton can help someone with a
particular medical condition that I also suffer from,
can I expect similar results?
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
Marine Phytoplankton contains some elements I've never
heard of before, are they compatible with our own body
