5 Reasons Your Dog Needs Phytoplankton

Phytoplankton are single-celled organisms that contain nearly every nutrient your dog needs.
Why your dog needs phytoplankton
Its whole nutrition fuels the entire ocean and it can fuel your dog with:Why your dog needs phytoplankton
  • Essential fatty acids
  • Trace minerals
  • Chlorophyll
  • Antioxidants
  • Essential amino acids
  • Protein
  • Carotenoids
  • Vitamins
Giving your dog even the tiniest amounts of phytoplankton can boost his health, and as researchers are finding out, it assists with fighting cancer and other diseases too.
  • #1 Helps Dogs With Digestive Issues

Phytoplankton is a whole food that delivers a highly concentrated source of balanced nutrition. This means your dog can absorb this nutrition without having to digest it first.  Usually, your dog’s digestive system has to break down food before the body can use it for energy. But phytoplankton is made up of tiny nanoparticles, so the body’s mucous membranes can absorb it. This means phytoplankton delivers energy directly to the body’s cells.  Dogs with leaky gut syndrome, EPI, digestive upset and bowel disease will have trouble getting proper nutrition from their food.

Fish aren’t born with high levels of omega-3 fats. Just like your dog, they need to get omega-3 in their diet. And they get it from phytoplankton.

  • #3 Most Dogs Are Mineral Deficient

Trace minerals are essential to good health as they support critical biological functions. This includes digestion, growth and hormone regulation, enzyme function and thyroid health. And manganese-deficient dogs are much more likely to develop joint disease and cruciate tears.

  • #4 Assists Fighting Cancer And Disease

Phytoplankton contains what’s known as the king of antioxidants, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD). SOD is the body’s most powerful antioxidant enzyme … it protects cells and helps remove toxins, including heavy metals from the body. Researchers found that the longest-lived animals, like sea turtles, contain large amounts of SOD. Shorter-lived animals, like mice, contain only small amounts. So SOD can be an important addition to your dog’s diet!

  • #5 Supports The Liver

Because phytoplankton is absorbed on the cellular level, the liver gets a break from digesting food. The liver is the master organ for detoxification in the body. It’s vital for the absorption of nutrients. As your dog ages or experiences health problems, the liver can lose its ability to accomplish these jobs. This makes it harder to absorb vital nutrients. Phytoplankton can deliver nutrients that help restore liver health without making it work for those nutrients.
