Marine Phytoplankton Benefits: The Ultimate Superfood and Ability To Raise Consciousness?

by Michael Wright,

Surpassing even spirulina and chlorella, the marine phytoplankton benefits are numerous and give it the title of the ultimate superfood. This life-giving substance also has interesting science behind it that suggests a possibility in having the ability to raise consciousness.

People familiar with health foods already know how incredible spirulina and chlorella (both are algae) are for human and animal consumption. Did you know though that marine phytoplankton, another algae, is being touted as a nutritionally superior food to spirulina and chlorella? In this article I’ll discuss some of the major marine phytoplankton benefits and offer a fascinating insight into how it might even be able to raise consciousness. With my experience in the nutraceutical industry, I’ll give my personal view on the best marine phytoplankton supplement and why I believe it is so.

1. The Ultimate Superfood

There are over 43,000 different marine phytoplankton strains known and there are a few that are incredibly unique and special for the human body. The Nannochloropsis Gaditana strain was discovered by a biologist named Dr. Luis Lubian and he found that it was perfectly matched to the human nutritional profile. Dr. Hugo Rodier, who is a medical doctor and Nutrition Professor at the University of Utah Medical School says this of marine phytoplankton:

“Marine phytoplankton makes available to us every amino acid, vitamin, mineral, polysaccharide, or healthy sugars and essential oils that the body needs.”

This means that it is possible for every structure and function in the body to benefit from marine phytoplankton.

This specific product has the Nannochloropsis strain, along with another strain that I’ll discuss below. This product also contains over 185 nutritional molecules that had never been scientifically identified.

2. Absorption and Massive Energy Generator

Marine phytoplankton, a single celled-organism, is several times smaller than a red blood cell and is thus able to absorb directly into the bloodstream without needing to be digested. Nucleotides, like ATP, are the currency of the cell and the mitochondria. We could think of them as small batteries that are used to produce energy. Because marine phytoplankton cells are so small, they bypass the mitochondrial energy production process (the Krebs cycle) and directly supply the body with ATP.

Ultimately, this not only instantly supplies the body with energy, it also saves the body energy as no energy is needed to digest the phytoplankton. Remember, spirulina and chlorella both need to be digested by the human body. Along with other nucleotides like DNA, RNA and all of the aforementioned nutrients and neurochemicals present in phytoplankton, it is no surprise that it is quite a massive energy generator.

Marine phytoplankton is at the bottom of the food chain in the oceans and is directly responsible for over 99% of the life in the oceans and according to National Geographic, provides nearly 50% of the entire world’s oxygen content.

3. Best Source of Superoxide Dismutase (SOD)

The second strain that is in the Oceans Alive Marine Phytoplankton product is called Tetraselmis and it is the most abundant and active source of SOD of any of the 43,000 strains of phytoplankton known. Melons and chaga mushrooms also are good sources of SOD, but Oceans Alive Marine Phytoplankton has hundreds of times more SOD than chaga and melons.

Superoxide dismutase is the body’s best internal anti-oxidant and is over 3,500 times stronger than vitamin C. Because it is an internal anti-oxidant, it is very difficult to obtain from food items and is often destroyed by the stomach acid if taken in supplement form. However, because marine phytoplankton is so incredibly small and can pass right into the bloodstream and into cells, the SOD content is not destroyed and can be used immediately.

Superoxide dismutase has been correlated with longer life spans, which was shown in detail by Richard Cutler at the Gerentology Research Center and National Institute of Aging.

Cutler showed that humans produce an average of 90 micrograms per milliliter of SOD and live an average of approximately 80 years. Our closest primate relatives, chimpanzees, produce 40 milliliters of SOD and live an average of only 40 years. In other words, the more SOD present, the longer average life-span.

If you are planning to use the Oceans Alive Marine Phytoplankton, consider adding in the Ayurvedic supplement known as Haritaki powder as well.

One study shows hows how Haritaki helps to preserve levels of SOD and BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor).

Simply put, using the Oceans Alive Marine Phytoplankton supplies an enormous amount of SOD and Haritaki powder helps to preserve it in the body even longer. My article, The Herb, Essential Oils and ORMUS to Enhance Your Spiritual and Meditation Practice, discusses Haritaki in even more detail and how it affects the pineal gland.

4. Ability to Raise Consciousness?

Oceans Alive Marine Phytoplankton is a raw, living food and grows via photosynthesis (using the Sun’s light and energy to create it’s massive nutrient profile) and is infused with billions of biophotons towards the end of the manufacturing process. In essence, it is a light-giving and life-giving food.

Over the last 100 years, scientists have found that mammalian brains are capable of producing biophotons. A recent study shows how rat brains can pass one biophoton per neuron per minute, while human brains can pass billions of biophotons per neuron per second.

The researchers of the study stated, “This mechanism appears to be sufficient to facilitate transmission of a large number of bits of information, or even allow the creation of a large amount of quantum entanglement.”

Otherwise stated, an entire network for light-based communication is in place in the brain and it has implications for possible quantum entanglement. The researchers go on to say, “for individual quantum communication links to form a larger quantum network with an associated entanglement process involving many distant spins, the nuclear spins interfacing with different axons must interact coherently. This, most likely, requires close enough contact between the interacting spins. The involvement of synaptic junctions between individual axons may provide such a proximity mechanism.”

Could biophotons be the means of information transference or the basis of consciousness itself? Could supplementing with foods infused with high amounts of biophotons, like marine phytoplankton, raise consciousness or help to give an increase in life? While we don’t yet know the answers to these questions and more, it is worth pondering and worth further scientific exploration.

Conclusion

My intention with this article is to show the exciting and numerous marine phytoplankton benefits as well as explore the consciousness-associated possibilities of it. It is my ultimate and favorite superfood that I suggest people research and consider using. What are your thoughts on this substance? Have you used it or are you interested?

North America may split in half: giant cracks formed in the ground

On September 15, the inhabitants of Mexico, who live on the outskirts of the Chihuahua Desert, posted on the Web very terrible changes in the surface of the earth: deep cracks formed in the territory for unknown reasons. The dips were about three meters wide and one and a half meters deep.

The cracks stretched for several kilometers. Geologists are now diligently studying the incident. According to their data, the crack begins 500 kilometers from the southern edge of the well-known San Andreas fault. 

Perhaps the situation is somehow related to the processes occurring in the fault. It is not known where the rift actually goes. It was studied mainly at the epicenters of earthquakes; none of the scientists looked into the bowels of the lithosphere.

Maybe the rift is indeed connected to the Chihuahua Desert. If so, it means that soon San Andreas will show itself, the earth will tremble.

According to another theory, swarms of earthquakes in the Atlantic could have caused the cracks. The last seismic event with a magnitude of 7 was recorded there on September 19.

The Atlantic is located farther from the San Andreas Fault, but it can speak of a global process taking place. So, for example, after the first incident in the Atlantic Ocean, the bottom of the Indian Ocean shuddered, then the Pacific. You can observe a certain circle along which events take place. Maybe soon mysterious faults will appear in the most unexpected places.

Scientists are more inclined to the option that tectonic shifts are taking place under Mexico. So, this summer after a strong earthquake, part of Mexico moved 45 centimeters. The awakening of a powerful volcano is not excluded. Some experts believe that North America could eventually split in half.

Climate change kicked off a new Great Migration

If you think that the effects of climate change will not come soon, you will be disappointed. Numerous scientific studies show that global warming will lead to devastating consequences, including the movement of people around the planet on an unprecedented, destabilizing scale. Thus, droughts, floods, bankruptcy and famine are already forcing people to leave their homes. 

The situation is such that environmental hazards affect populations across the planet and – under certain conditions – can stimulate migration. The most important factors are temperature changes, variability in precipitation, and rapid-onset natural disasters such as tropical storms, according to a study by researchers at the Postdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK).

The findings allow researchers to identify geographic regions that may be particularly susceptible to future migration movements. Has the Great Nations Migration really begun?

Migration of peoples

The history of mankind is approximately 2.4 million years old. However, according to a 2015 study, a bone fragment found in Ethiopia in 2013 suggests that humanity is several hundred thousand years older. As the authors of the work, published in the journal Science, write, the genus of primates of the hominid family existed on Earth 2.8 million years ago.

It is important to understand that over the entire period of its existence, human populations have regularly migrated. So, the first to leave Africa and populate Eurasia was Homo erectus (Homo erectus), whose migrations began about 2 million years ago. It was followed by the expansion of Homo sapiens and its close relatives: Neanderthals and Denisovans. A modern man came to the Middle East about 80 thousand years ago.

Today, migration is called any territorial movement of the population associated with the crossing of both external and internal borders in order to change their permanent residence or temporary stay in the territory for study or work, regardless of the factors that contribute to resettlement.

The relentless impact of drought, floods, bankruptcy and famine are forcing people to leave their homes.


Ecological migration is most pronounced in middle-income countries, as well as in countries with developed agriculture. “Environmental factors can stimulate migration, but the magnitude of the impact depends on the specific economic and socio-political conditions in the countries,” writes the lead author of the new study, Roman Hoffmann.

In both low- and high-income countries, the environmental impact on migration is weaker. Presumably because either people are too poor to leave, or in rich countries people have enough financial resources to cope with the consequences. It is in the regions with average incomes and dependence on agriculture that strong waves of population migration are observed.

A large-scale meta-analysis, the results of which are published in the journal Nature Climate Change, revealed a number of interesting patterns. It turned out that the impact on migration depends on the types of environmental hazards and that different hazards can mutually reinforce each other. While temperature changes in the region have the greatest impact on migration, fast-onset natural disasters, changing precipitation variability and anomalies can also play a role.

Brave new world

As the authors of the meta-analysis emphasize, ecological migration always depends on a number of economic and socio-political factors. The story of climate refugees heading for Europe or the US can be oversimplified. For example, researchers have found strong evidence that environmental change in vulnerable countries mainly leads to internal migration or migration to other low- and middle-income countries, rather than cross-border migration to high-income countries. Affected populations often migrate to locations in their own region and eventually return to their homes within a relatively short period of time.

Burgundy marks the regions in which the largest increase in migration is observed; Regions of international population migration are marked in red; Regions of traditional growth of migrants are marked in yellow. 

The results of the study also point to regions that are highly vulnerable to climate change, in which ecological migration may be especially widespread. The authors of the work note that the population of Latin America and the Caribbean, several countries in sub-Saharan Africa, especially in the Sahel region and East Africa, and Western, South and Southeast Asia are particularly at risk.

Given the expected increase in global average temperature, researchers believe that the topic of environmental migration will begin to attract more attention in the future. The best way to protect those affected is to stabilize the global climate, namely to rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions from burning fossil fuels. While migration can be an effective adaptation strategy for households, it can be involuntary and accompanied by human suffering. However, the most important conclusion of this meta-analysis, in my opinion, is the fact that forced climatic migrations of large population groups can be avoided.

In the Netherlands, people began to be buried in mushroom coffins

This accelerates the decomposition of the body several times.

In the Netherlands, you can continue to help the ecosystem after death by choosing a living mushroom coffin that accelerates the decay of your body. The coffin transforms corpses into compost, which enriches the soil thanks to mycelium.

The idea was coined by Bob Hendrix of the Delft University of Technology. According to him, such a “living cocoon” was the first in the world. 

“This is the world’s first ‘living’ coffin, and last Saturday a deceased person in the Netherlands was composted for the first time and brought back into the cycle of life”

Bob Hendrix

The coffin was the resting place of an 82-year-old woman whose body would decompose within two to three years. The decomposition process in a traditional coffin with lacquered wood and metal handles usually takes over ten years. 

The mushroom coffin itself decomposes within 30-45 days. According to Hendrix, mycelium is the most suitable material for environmentally friendly burial. 

The technology for the production of the coffin includes the collection of moss, the extraction of mycelium from the mushrooms and the addition of wood chips.

The resulting solution hardens in seven days, and then becomes activated again when moisture gets on it. According to Hendrix, this material is a complete organism. 

The bottom of the coffin is covered with moss, which has been added with various soil creatures. This further accelerates the decomposition of the body. 

Hendrix’s startup was named Loop. The scientist has already signed a contract with one of the funeral homes and expects that his work will be a great success.
