Marine Phytoplankton's Powerful Healing Properties

Marine Phytoplankton

Dr. Jerry Tennant, MD, from the Tennant Institute of Integrative Medicine, explains that the micronutrients and electrolytes in marine phytoplankton are exactly what human cell membranes need to carry out their metabolism. Not surprisingly, the composition of human plasma, or fluid surrounding cell membranes, is similar to that of sea water. For three billion years Marine Phytoplankton has supported virtually all living creatures in the Ocean. It contains a unique combination of life sustaining nutrients including; Omega 3 essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA), protein,
chlorophyll, vitamins, iodine, minerals and trace elements.


What Exactly are Phytoplankton?

 Phytoplankton are microscopic plants that live in the ocean. There are many species of phytoplankton, each of which has a characteristic shape. Collectively, phytoplankton grow abundantly in oceans around the world and are the foundation of the marine food chain. Marine phytoplankton is the main diet of some species of whales and small fish.

Since phytoplankton depend upon certain conditions for growth, they are a good indicator of change in their environment. For these reasons, and because they also exert a global-scale influence on climate, phytoplankton are of primary interest to oceanographers and Earth scientists around the world.

Over dependence on land-based food sources often lead to deficiencies in micronutrients and trace elements. Marine phytoplankton promotes and maintains optimum health by boosting and supporting all systems within the body. When the body is missing critical components, it is unable to maintain the balance of these systems, and malfunctions (disease) result. Scientific research indicates that Marine Phytoplankton may be the most important food on Planet Earth. It is nature's gift to assist us on our journey to optimal health and wellness through balanced nutrition.

The Past and Future of Human Nutrition is in the Oceans

Hugo Rodier M.D.

The micro-nutrients and electrolytes in marine phytoplankton are exactly what human cell membranes need to carry out their metabolism. Not surprisingly, the composition of human plasma, or fluid surrounding cell membranes, is similar to that of sea water. Relying solely on land-based food sources may lead to deficiencies in these micro-nutrients and electrolytes. While transient sub-optimal nutrition may be forgiven, a constant diet lacking in these micro-nutrients will adversely affect every function, structure, and detoxification functions of the human cell. As noted above, our metabolism will suffer, leading to practically all diseases.

Good nutrition will enhance the structure and function of all organs in our bodies. Our brains, muscles, hearts, arteries, joints, bones, skin, hair, hormones, vision, digestion, kidneys, liver will carry out their jobs much better. Metabolically, our lipids, and sugars can be optimized, thus providing more overall energy, minimize weight problems, and improve sleep. These nutrients improve mental function, and memory. They reduce depression, harmful effects of stress, and mood swings.

Marine phytoplankton is rich in polymeric, and basic healthy sugars, such as polysaccharides Plankton also have an alkaline pH, which is important, given the acidity of our diets high in refined sugars, soda pop, and farmed large animals.

Marine Phytoplankton is a Nutrient Dense Superfood

The high density of nutrients found in Sea Vegetables and marine phytoplankton is extremely important for many reasons. Perhaps the most important is that these nutrients maintain human cell membranes in structure and function.

This is vital for cell detoxification, and for the overall metabolism of human cells. In fact, the causes of diseases have been simplified to very specific mechanisms, all of which center on cell membrane function and structure. Inflammation, Oxidation, Toxicity, and Mitochondrial dysfunction keep cell membranes from doing their job effectively.

Algae contain high levels of antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory micro-nutrients to fuel metabolism and detoxification. Also, they stoke the fires of the Mitochondria, where cells make energy required to carry out their function.

Cancer-Fighting Potential of Phytoplankton

At the University of Rhode Island, professor Yuzuru Shimizu is developing a culturing system that will ensure an adequate supply of sea-based organisms that show anti-tumor properties. Shimizu is examining metabolites of single-celled plankton called dinoflagellates, which National Cancer Institute tests have shown to have cancer-fighting potential. Plankton could also prevent skin cancer - Scientists from Heinrich Heine University in Germany and TNO Nutrition and Food Research Institute in the Netherlands have reported their findings in the latest edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

Marine Phytoplankton Contains Essential Micronutrients

The elements and electrolytes in phytoplankton are almost tailor-made for the human body. It's no coincidence that the composition of human plasma is similar to that of seawater. We arose from the sea and our internal bodies reflect this. Over-reliance on land-based  food sources often leads to deficiencies in micronutrients and trace elements. Our bodies need these elements to perform as nature intended. Left to its own devices, the human body has a marvelous system called homeostasis which keeps all systems in balance. Take away some critical component and the body experiences malfunctions that cause suboptimal performance. Too many malfunctions cause disease. Phytonutrients exhibit potentially promising effects in human physiology.

It may be no coincidence that the composition of human plasma is similar to sea water. Marine phytoplankton are alkaline-forming in the body. With our over-reliance on land based food sources, we have developed deficiencies in micronutrients and trace elements. The nutritional properties from the algae contain over 200 species of marine phytoplankton on land. This allows for a unique blend of phytonutrients which promote proper metabolic functions.

Containing a wide range of trace elements, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll, enzymes and cellular materials, marine phytoplankton promotes and maintains optimum health by boosting and supporting all systems within the body. When the body is missing critical components, it is unable to maintain the balance of these systems, and malfunctions (disease) result. Over dependence on land-based food sources often lead to deficiencies in micronutrients and trace elements.

Phyto means Light and Plankton means Floating/Suspended

 Scientists at NASA theorize that some 3 1/2 billion years ago, the world was changed forever. The appearance of tiny organisms with the ability to convert sunlight, warmth, water and minerals into protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and amino acids marked the beginning of life. Phytoplankton, the single-cell plants are the basis of all other life forms on planet earth, they are the 'vegetation' of the ocean.

Phytoplankton are responsible for making up to 90% of Earth's oxygen. Phytoplankton are the food utilized by some of the world's largest and longest living animals and fish. Blue Whales, humpbacks, baleen whales and more all eat plankton and live between 80-150 years while maintaining great strength and endurance and are sexually active until they die.

Plankton have an alkaline pH, which is important, given the acidity of our diets high in refined sugars, soda pop, and farmed large animals. The high density of nutrients found in algae is extremely important for many reasons. Perhaps the most important (as noted above) is that these nutrients maintain human cell membranes in structure and function. This is vital for cell detoxification, and for the overall metabolism of human cells.

In fact, the causes of diseases have been simplified to very specific mechanisms, all of which center on cell membrane function and structure. Inflammation, Oxidation, Toxicity, and Mitochondrial dysfunction keep cell membranes from doing their job effectively. Algae contain high levels of antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory micronutrients to fuel metabolism and detoxification. Also, they stoke the fires of the Mitochondria, where cells make energy required to carry out their function. Of course, photosynthesis is the mechanism whereby plants in general and algae in particular, harness life-sustaining solar energy.

Phytoplankton: Plants of the Sea

To the casual observer, the oceans and bays are vast trackless bodies of water. Beneath their surfaces are countless fish. But more numerous by far are the tiny microscopic animals and plants collectively called plankton, a word derived from the Greek meaning wandering. The plant portion of this complex oceanic soup is called phytoplankton. The term phyto comes from the Latin phyton meaning tree or plant. This large grouping is composed mostly of single-celled algae and bacteria. Marine phytoplankton contains life-giving properties that provide for cell sustenance and healthy cell growth. Phytoplankton contains essential fatty acids such as Omega 3 and Omega 6. Also found in marine phytoplankton are beta carotene, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, pyridoxine, cobalamin, Vitamin C, and tocopherol. Plankton also have an alkaline pH which provides a neutralizing effect.

Phytoplankton, comprise hundreds of species of photosynthetic, unicellular organisms belonging to the Kingdom Protista. Temperate coastal waters, such as those along British Columbia (BC) Canada, are highly productive and support a diverse array of microalgal species from numerous Classes, including the primary producers called diatoms (Class Bacillariophyceae). Every spring, when conditions of light, nutrients, and mixing are optimal for growth, diatoms grow rapidly in the euphotic zone (upper 20 m). This event is known as the "spring bloom". During this period, many species take advantage of the enhanced conditions but generally three diatom genera are the most successful - Skeletonema, Thalassiosira, and Chaetoceros.
