Marine Phytoplankton are single-celled plants that grow in the ocean. According to NASA scientists, Marine Phytoplankton are responsible for up to 90 percent of the planets oxygen, which is vital for maintaining life on both land and sea.
NASA scientists believe that around 3 1/2 billion years ago, the appearance of tiny plant-like organisms with the ability to convert sunlight,, water and minerals into protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and amino acids marked the beginning of life on planet Earth. Phytoplankton are the foundation for all other life forms and are the food utilized by the largest and longest living animals and fish. Blue whales, bowhead whales, baleen whales, gray whales, humpbacks, and right whales all eat plankton. These species live between 80 and 150 years old and maintain great strength and endurance throughout their lives.
Nearly all life in the ocean is dependent on plants. Only plants have the ability to manufacture food out of inorganic substances, such as energy from the sun. Thus all animals are dependent on plants, since animals cannot derive nutrition from inorganic substances. Being the original producers, plants form the first link in the food chain, a sequence of organisms in which each is food for the next member in the sequence.
In an article recently published in the Yale University Journal of Marine Research, the power stored chemically in the worlds phytoplankton equaled 63 billion kilowatts. Thus, marine phytoplankton is not only an incredible source of nutrition as the foundation of the food chain, but is a vitally important source of bio-energy as well. Benefits of Phytoplankton
The elements and electrolytes in plankton are almost tailor-made for the human body. It’s no coincidence that the composition of human plasma is quite similar in composition to seawater. Over reliance on land-based food sources often leads to deficiencies in micronutrients and trace elements. Our bodies need these elements to perform as nature intended.
Many people consuming Marine Phytoplankton report significantly increased levels of energy and vitality. The world renowned physicist, Dr. Fritz Popp, found that living things transmit small packets of light called photons. We are able to see the sparkling photon light produced by the phosphorescence in the ocean when the water is stirred at night. Since we are almost entire made up of water, we should only put into our bodies those foods and nutrients that have the highest quality, most positive frequency of energy.
Phytoplankton, the foundation of life in the ocean, the forerunner of life on land, and the sustainer of our atmosphere, has an extremely high energy frequency in addition to its nutritional content.
It is reassuring to know that a microscopic but highly powerful organism like marine phytoplankton contains the positive energy that we need to thrive, despite the hazards of environmental toxicity, stress and nutrient-depleted food. Our continued health may very well depend on our capacity to harness the nutritional and energy source from our oceans, and consuming properly harvested Marine Phytoplankton is an important step in the right direction.
