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.
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?
