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 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.
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 phytoplankton.”
Steven Schecter, N.D – “There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables that can prevent assimilation of different radio-nuclitides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins.”
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.
