Powerful Healing Properties of Marine Phytoplankton

Re-awaken Your Body's Healing Power With Mother's Nature's Milk From the Ocean


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.

Wild Marine Phytoplankton Balanced Food Source

Marine Phytoplankton - Nature's Milk From the Ocean

Marine Phytoplankton is in itself completely life substaining Dr. Jerry Tennant M.D. - "There are very few products that provide all, or even most, of the raw materials to make new cells and sustain the existing ones. The problem is that we need ALL of them at the same time for things to work. One of those rare products that contains almost everything you need for life (and the rebuilding of a healthy life) is marine phytoplankton. It contains the nine amino acids that the body cannot make. The essential fatty acids are also present (Omega 3 and Omega 6). Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, D and major and trace minerals are all present in marine phtyoplankton."

Steven Schecter, N.D - "There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables ... sea vegetables can prevent assimilation of different radionuclitides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins."

Overdependence 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.

Ocean nutrition Dr. Rene Quinton, a French biologist and biochemist, studied seawater by comparing the microcosmic ocean environment and its similarities to blood plasma. His studies, grounded in the rich live mineral content found in plankton-fed seawater, led to his publication, "L’eau de Mer Milieu Organique" in 1904. His discovery became known as Ocean Plasma.

Dr. Quinton's work led to the belief that seawater contains every mineral and trace mineral known in organic form and provides all the necessary elements needed by human tissues when applied in the proper ratios. He proved that seawater, properly formulated and under certain conditions, is virtually identical to mammalian blood plasma. With the assistance of many eminent physicians, he successfully used seawater as a healing agent on thousands of patients in France and Egypt in the early 1900s.

The report included before-and-after photos of patients. Babies brought back from near death from cholera and other causes; cadaver-like bodies filled out to healthy plumpness; raw, weeping skin from eczema made smooth and lesion free…all by the power of seawater. Many early-20th-century scourges such as tuberculosis were shown to be healed by this remarkable marine plasma. Historically, ocean water (plasma) has had numerous applications, based on the concept of renewing, purifying and regenerating the internal fluid terrain as well as maintaining the equilibrium of the body. It has proved to be a support for andregenerator of cell functions.

Our civilization is starving for nutrients that are lacking in our food chain. Minerals are required for all metabolic processes, as well as proper composition of your body fluids, the formation of your blood & bones, and they are critically important for healthy nerve function. Now more than ever, supplementation is crucial for health, because minerals have been depleted from our soils, and other nutrients are destroyed in the processing & cooking of almost all the foods we eat. This type of malnutrition is often the cause of pain and chronic degenerative diseases. Have you heard the phrase "over-fed but under-nourished"? Even though caloric intake is abundant, many bodies lack proper nourishment.



The micronutrients and electrolytes in plankton 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 micronutrients and electrolytes. While transient sub-optimal nutrition may be forgiven, a constant diet lacking in these micronutrients 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.

Ocean kelp in a marine environment "The future of Nutrition is found in the ocean" - Jacques Cousteau

Good nutrition will enhance the structure and function of all organs in our bodies. Our brains, muscles, hearts, arteries, joints, bones, skin, hair, hormones, immune system, 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 (J. Plankton Research 2005;27:695.) 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 product offers a full Spectrum 72 natural ionic sea trace minerals)

Marine Phytoplankton is a nutrient dense superfood

The high density of nutrients found in algae 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 micronutrients to fuel metabolism and detoxification. Also, they stoke the fires of the Mitochondria, where cells make energy required to carry out their function.

Research and Development

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).

Health from the sea!

Phytoplankton are microscopic plants that live in the ocean.
Linda Page, N.D. Ph.D. - "Sea plants can transform your health. There are many reasons why I recommend sea vegetables as part of my healing programs -- weight loss, cellulite control, detoxification, beautiful hair and skin, and more. Sea vegetables (phytoplankton) can transform your health! I believe that when we eat sea vegetables, and when we take seaweed baths, we are tapping into the ancestral and restorative source of all life- the ocean. Include sea vegetables into your diet every day and you 'll see a difference. I do!
Sea plants -- gifts from the sea!"

The secrets of the sea are miracles waiting to be discovered by medical science. Seawater contains every mineral and trace mineral known, in organic form and in the proper ratios needed by human tissues. Dr. René Quinton, French biologist, was the first person to discern and to investigate the similarity between sea water and mammalian lymph and blood plasma systems. In one experiment, René Quinton and his medical team drained a dog of all of its blood and replaced it with isotonic (diluted) seawater. The dog should have died immediately, one would think, but the dog lived. On day two after the transfusion, 50% of the blood components had reappeared. By day four, almost 100% of the missing blood components were restored in what appeared to be proof of biological transmutation (a change from one element to another). Not only did the blood completely regenerate, but soon after the procedure the dog bounced around like a puppy with greater vitality than before, and it lived for many years afterwards.




How Does Phytoplankton Relate to Light Waves and Energy?
Dr. Robert Rowe Ph.D

My 81 year old mother had been telling me how much energy she had been having since taking the phytoplankton. However she had misunderstood the amount she should be taking – she was consuming mere drops, rather than the proper ounces. Having been a student of homeopathy, it suddenly dawned on me there must be a major energy component activated, even though her dosage was so small.

I was introduced to this plan by a colleague. He had a stubborn case of persistent dandruff for years and nothing would help remedy the embarrassing situation. However, after a week taking phytoplankton, it suddenly stopped. With a little thought, I understand that there was an internal effect going on. With further investigation, I found that this newly discovered miniscule plant also had effects on improving blood sugar problems and even some cancer cases. It was also found that energy increased and muscle soreness after exercise was reduced in people taking it. Some reported that their thinking was clearer, and improvement in blood pressure readings was noticed. It seemed that, on a molecular level, it was activating the energy molecule in the body known as ATP. Notice that I said “energy” molecule."

Light Frequencies

The work of Fritz Popp came to mind: Dr. Popp, a world renowned physicist, found that living things emit small packets of light called photons. We can see the phosphorescence produced in the ocean when the water is stirred at night; we are able to see the sparkling photon light produced. Dr. Popp was able to show that the effects of a compound could be duplicated just by bombarding water with the electromagnetic frequency of the compound, which is how homeopathy works.

Some people may know the work of Dr. Emoto concerning the effects of positive energy on water, and the remarkably beautiful ice crystals that are formed when water is blessed by Zen priests. It seems that water is able to take on these positive aspects. Believing this and knowing that we are, for the most part, water, it makes sense, then that we should only put into our bodies those foods and nutrients that have the highest quality, most positive frequency of energy (referred to as “high frequency,” rather than negative or poor quality “low frequency”).

A description of what Plankton isPhytoplankton, then, the foundation of life in the ocean, the forerunner of life on land, and the sustainer of our atmosphere, would have an extremely high energy frequency (in addition to its physical properties, which have a nutrient content). The future of the human race is challenged more and more by manmade hazards: electromagnet “smog” (negative energy waves from technology) depleting our brain chemistry and immune systems, industrial toxins in our bodies, processed compounds portrayed as food on the grocery shelves, and the high stress demands of family and work.

Sticky note to order PlanktonIt is reassuring to know that a microscopic but highly powerful organism like phytoplankton contains the positive energy that we need to thrive despite these hazards. It offers sufficient amino acids to help replace the depleted nervous system, chlorophyll to help remove toxins, and nutrients to keep our cells powered to fight the battle against these stressors. The future is in the hands of those who understand the power of energy within our bodies and within the life forces provided to us.



Phytoplankton Making History For Mankind
by Dr. Jerry Tennant, MD

There are two basic theories of how to get people with chronic disease well and keep them that way. One is that we must find a drug that will substitute for a broken “gear” in the body or to repair the “gears” mechanically (surgery). The other is to give the body the things it needs to manufacture new cells and let it heal itself.

The amazing marine phytoplankton.jpg For those wishing to support the latter theory, it has been difficult to determine what is actually needed to make new cells. People are always saying things like they have a new herb from Africa, or a fruit from China that will magically heal everything. Such findings are often useful for some but not predictable for most. My feeling has always been that our Heavenly Father would not design a body that requires unusual potions from far-away places to make us healthy.

The elements and electrolytes in phyto plankton 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.

There are few products that provide all, or even most, essential amino acids, more Omega 3's than fish oil, Vitamin A, Selenium, Iodine and others than marine phytoplankton. It may be no coincidence that the composition of human plasma is similar to sea water. 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.

The marine phytoplankton in FrequenSea is alkaline-forming in the body. Phytoplankton nutrients are PH 8-8.5 and highly alkaline. There is much study and practice in holistic health regarding body ph balance -alkaline versus acidic. If a body is in an extreme acidic state disease, infections, and damage may proliferate. The acidic condition strains the body and compels it to take minerals -including sodium, magnesium, calcium, and potassium from bones and vital organs. Scientifically, PH means potential hydrogen and measures the H+ Hydrogen ions in the body -basically measuring voltage. The determination of alkaline forming or acidic forming is NOT what is taken in organic form, but what is 'left over' in inorganic matter (ie. ash) after digestion.

Micronutrients are essential to good health

Dr. Jerry Tennant, MD - "While transient sub-optimal nutrition may be forgiven, a constant diet lacking in micronutrients will adversely affect every function, structure, and detoxification functions of the human cell. Good nutrition will enhance the structure and function of all organs in our bodies. Our brains, muscles, hearts, arteries, joints, bones, skin, hair, hormones, immune system, 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."

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. Overdependence on land-based food sources often lead to deficiencies in micronutrients and trace elements. The phytoplankton are Nature's gift to assist us on our journey to optimal health and wellness through balanced nutrition..

What are phytoplankton?
by David Herring

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. Small fish, and some species of whales, eat them as food. Larger fish then eat the smaller fish. Humans catch and eat many of these larger 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.

Phyto means Light and Plankton means Floating/Suspended.

Phytoplankton Book 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. (J. Applied Phycology 1993;5:235.)

Dr. Robert Rowe Ph.D. - "...Our beliefs are even responsible for our genetic makeup. Your genes will change to meet your beliefs. To understand this concept better, read the book Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton. There is a lot of solid scientific evidence to show that, on the smallest level, we are actually made up of light and energy, which we have at least some control over. And when we look at our world from this viewpoint, there is so much more to see and understand about its complexity, and it gives us more power over our destiny.

Life based nutrition Dr. Jerry Tennant, M.D. - "One of those rare products that contains almost everything you need for life (and the rebuilding of a healthy life) is marine phytoplankton. It contains the nine amino acids that the body cannot make and must be consumed in our diet (essential amino acids). The essential fatty acids are also present (Omega 3 and Omega 6). Vitamins A (betacarotine), 81 (thiamine), 82 (riboflavin), 83 (niacin), 85 (pantothenic acid), 86 (pyridoxine), 812 (cobalamin), C, D, and E (tocopherol) and major and trace minerals are all present in phytoplankton. In short, it contains almost everything one needs to sustain life. Therefore, it contains almost everything one needs to restore health by providing the raw materials to make new cells that function normally. This is particularly true if one stops putting toxic materials such as artificial sweeteners and trans fats (partially hydrogenated fats) into our body."

Marine Phytoplankton contain many elements available no where else. You may have heard of fresh water phytoplankton like Spirulina and Chlorella. These algae also have many health benefits, however, with the 200+ separate species of marine phytoplankton, their nutritional profile is second to none!

Glyconutrients

Marine Phytoplankton is a rich source of glyconutrients which play an important role in good cell-to-cell communication. "Most of the Nobel prizes in Medicine and Biology have been awarded to the concept of “cell communication,” which is how our 100 trillion cells get their metabolic function coordinated (J. Science, November 26th, 2004.) They do this through a system of “messages,” which are well-known molecules like hormones, neurotransmitters, enzymes, etc. They form a vast network of communication, which should have never been separated into different components. The Psycho-Neuro-Immune-Endocrine system of cell communication to coordinate our metabolism is now considered to be the cornerstone of health and function in cutting edge research" Dr. Tennent MD (“The intricate interface between the immune system and metabolism,” J. Trends in Immunology 2004;25:193.)

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.

Sticky note to order PlanktonTom Harper, a sea farmer in northern British Columbia, has created a 30 million dollar facility on the edge of the northern Pacific Ocean to grow marine phytoplankton year round to feed his shellfish. His process recreates the "Spring Bloom" of marine phytoplankton 365 days a year. Tom Harper fully recovered from his diabetes and his rare cancer (and was only given months to live), when he decided to eat phytoplankton. The sea farm gives back in a very unique way. First, it provides a resource for the researchers onsite and second, it puts a daily supply of marine phytoplankton back in the ocean. The reef beneath their farm is rebuilding due to the extra Marine Phytoplankton…Sea Otters and Bald Eagles have moved back into the area due to the abundance of new fish and sea life that have returned. The extra oxygen created by the plankton every day is in the 8 - 1 million liter growing.

Phytoplankton has only recently made an impact as a food source for human consumption
by Tiffany Haarsma, Marine Life Sciences

In 2005 WILD natural blends of Marine Phytoplankton became available fro the first time in history worldwide through Mr. Tom Harper's remarkable technology. Since then, consumers and retailers have seen more and more Phytoplankton products making their way into the market. However, not all phytoplankton are grown and harvested equally or naturally.

Stickey note to order As the popularity of whole food nutrients such as high quality open cell phytoplankton make their way into many homes, many questions have risen. Companies unwilling to answer questions fully, or that skirt around issues usually do so because they have simply "jumped on board" hoping to gain a place in the market with little or no research of their own. It is a common practise within many market places.

As educated consumers it is important to research the origin and safety of foods and products we consume. Sometimes though, we do not always know the questions to ask. I hope the following information creates an empowering understanding from which to base your decision.

OPEN Cell vs. CLOSED Cell... what's the difference?

1) Alpha 3 CMP is OPEN cell Phytoplankton. Most other brands of Phytoplankton are CLOSED Cell. The Human body does not have the digestive enzymes to break down silica which forms the "shell" of the microscopic plankton plants, therefore, if the cell wall is still in tact, very little, if any nutrients will be absorbed. No matter how potent the other companies claim their plankton is, unless it is open, it makes no difference. Our plankton cells are opened without using and heat, freezing, or chemicals. Many companies have to mix their closed cell plankton with other forms of seaweed and greens to yield nutritional potential for humans.

2) Alpha 3 CMP is a blend of up to 200 species of WILD Marine Phytoplankton and Natural sea salt. Other products contain single species grown in a denatured laboratory environment called a bio-reactor. Unique Sea Farms is the only company in the world with the Patent pending technology to grow and harvest WILD marine Phytoplankton in a controlled, safe environment. Natural Sea salt has 84 essential minerals the body requires for OPTIMAL cellular function. There are trace amounts of this vital sea salt in every serving of Alpha 3 CMP. With that said, it is only .05% of your recommended daily serving of sodium; this being considered sodium free according to RDI of the American Heart Association.

3) Alpha 3 CMP is the only Phytoplankton with full double-blind scientific studies that can prove an increase of CD3 cells (immune booster cells). As of yet, none of the other companies have provided any scientific research on their particular plankton species as beneficial for human consumption.

4) It is also now scientifically proven that a daily serving of 75mg of Alpha 3 CMP offers enough potency to increase the CD3 cells (immune cells). Other brands may provide more plankton per serving, but again, if they have closed cell plankton in their product, more will not make a difference. Also, the other brands have no actual research to confirm how much is needed of their brand. Often times consumers assume "more is more", and this is what manufacturers count on at points of purchase.

5) The Sea Farm is a CARBON NEUTRAL research and manufacturing facility. Unbelievably, it only requires about 10Hp to operate our facility. You have probably heard about the carbon fixation of trees and the increasing interest in planting trees to offset our carbon emissions. The fact is that a mature tree probably fixes 4-5 t of CO2 over its lifespan of 40-100 years. In terms of removal rate, forests fix at least 1.2 t C per acre per year11 (or 4.4 t C02/acre/year). In contrast, our facility running 8 tanks will fix approximately 1 tonne of CO2 every day! Clearly, micro-algae are more efficient agents for CO2 removal than trees. Our only bi-product is OXYGEN!

6) The first step of our technology to "Bloom" the Phytoplankton in the tanks requires that we fill them up with Seawater which contains naturally occurring wild species of phytoplankton that are thoroughly tested each and every batch to ensure they completely safe for human consumption. As phytoplankton make up the basis of the food chain in the ocean, it is imperative NOT to disrupt or take away this natural foundation. In essence, we "borrow" the Plankton for only 5 to 12 days until the tanks are in full "bloom" and ready to be harvested. Approximately 5% of the wild nutrient rich phytoplankton bloom remain in the tanks after harvesting, therefore, when we empty the tanks the remaining three to five percent of Phytoplankton nutrients returns back out to the ocean, maintaining the strength of the oceans food chain.

7) Alpha 3 CMP is tested after each harvest for yeast, mould, bacteria, e-coli, staphylococcus, salmonella, heavy metals, and arsenic at a licensed third party laboratory that has been granted their Site License Number issued through Health Canada. Each and every batch has met the strict guidelines set forth by Health Canada (Equivalent to the US FDA) since it's launch in April 2005.

Marine Life Science has contracted with the Department of Health Promotion and Education at the University of Utah to conduct clinical studies to determine the impact of Alpha 3 CMP concentrated marine phytoplankton on human health indicators of apparently healthy individuals Progress Report from the Director of Research Life Enrichment Research Foundation (PDF file)

Making an educated decision - Consumer questions to ask phytoplankton suppliers:

1) Is it open or closed cell? If the answer is OPEN, carry on with the following questions, otherwise, CLOSED cell phytoplankton often offer little to no absorption into the human digestive tract and will make very little difference from a nutritional standpoint.

2) Does the phytoplankton blend offer hundreds of species of WILD phytoplankton, or only a few "select" species. How did that company go about "selecting" the species in that particular product? Where is the medical proof that those species are beneficial from a human health standpoint? Please provide scientific evidence to back-up any potential health benefits.

Tom Harper's Sea Farm 3) Is the other product grown in in sync with Mother Nature?; in fresh natural seawater with open tanks exposed to natural sunlight or de-natured bio-reactors using artificial sea water and artificial sunlight? Our bodies are designed to benefit most from plants that grow in their natural environment as do other organic fruits and vegetables.

4) What medical studies do they have to conclude a proper serving or "recommended dose" of their Phytoplankton? In other words, how do they know their reccomended daily serving is enough or perhaps too much of their species (again though, if it is CLOSED cell, it makes not difference whatsoever)

5) What measures do the growers take to ensure as little environmental impact as possible?
