It lives in the sea but is this the
most important plant in the world?


Marine phytoplankton is a microscopic marine algae that lives just below the surface of the ocean. Invisible to the human eye, it is now regarded by scientists at NASA as the most important plant on earth. Why? It’s responsible for 90% of the world’s oxygen and even our food supply.

As if that wasn’t enough, the potent detox and healing properties of phytoplankton, make it one of the most promising discoveries in the future of natural medicine.

Responsible for the air you breathe and the food you eat

Marine phytoplankton is often referred to as the grass of the sea. It contains chlorophyll and uses photosynthesis to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen. In fact, this oxygen factory churns out more O2 than all the forests in the world combined! Without it, all life form on earth would die. It also lies at the heart of the ocean’s eco-system, feeding everything from fish to whales, reaching humans naturally through the food chain. Its unique reproduction capabilities mean that marine phytoplankton is a highly sustainable food source, accounting for 25% of all vegetation on earth.

Disease prevention and longevity benefits

As the worlds most potent source of the antioxidant Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), marine phytoplankton can help prevent conditions like alzheimer’s, cancer, heart disease, and premature aging.

It also acts as a battery, recharging the cells in your body in two ways:

1) Increasing the number of electrons in your cells: this helps facilitate regeneration and optimal energy flow within the cellular cycle.

2) Providing essential amino acids and fatty acids: which are used to build healthy cell walls that can regenerate.

It’s also worth noting that due to its microscopic size, marine phytoplankton can bypass your body’s digestive and liver functions, getting to work immediately.

For patients suffering chronic illnesses, marine phytoplankton supplementation has been shown to improve symptoms in days.

What to take

Unfortunately, our ocean water is subject to increasing levels of toxic contamination from metals, plastic chemicals and nuclear radiation. When purchasing phytoplankton, look for strains grown in a lab which uses clean seawater and specific strains of the highest quality phytoplankton, such as Gala. This is the most abundant of Superoxide Dismutase.

Oceans Alive currently produces one of the best marine phytoplankton available on the market.


Have you taken marine phytoplankton? What are your thoughts?

As always, pushing for health.
