Amazing Marine Phytoplankton

Did You Know? The largest animal in the world the Blue Whale eats Phytoplankton as it's main source of energy and can live up to 200 years!

Marine Phytoplankton is the foundation of life in the ocean. It has been at the base of the food chain for all the creatures living in the ocean for more than 2.5 billion years, from the smallest species, to the largest of whales. It's molecules are 5-7 times smaller than a red blood cell, making it able to enter and nourish cells in a unique way, bypassing the digestive system, straight to your liver and to your blood stream to be carried directly into your cells. Making them an extremely bioavailable source of nutrients on a cellular level.

Why is this important? Being bioavailable means there is no loss of nutrients when eaten because it goes directly into the blood stream and not into the digestive tract. Literally hundreds of potent phytochemicals that work in synergy to protect your body's tissues, detoxify your blood and remove toxins, enhance oxygenation and circulation and reverse abnormal cell division that can lead to cancer. You also get an almost instantaneous boost of energy and vitality that can last all day!

Ocean-based Plants are the Future of Nutritional medicine


Dr. Mark R. Edwards, a biologist and author of Smartcultures: Nature’s tiniest Genius, Algae Reverses Environmental Pollution and Regenerated Degraded Ecosystems, he notes that in plants growing on land it is impossible to find the vast and complex amount of nutrients found in Marine Phytoplankton. The microalgae stores higher levels of nutrients than earth plants as they lack roots. They have their entire surface to absorb nutrients, while earth plants only absorb nutrients through their roots, and are often grown in worn soil lacking in essential nutrients, altogether making Marine Phytoplankton up to 300% higher in nutrients than earth plants.

PuroTetra all natural Marine Phytoplankton is rich in trace minerals, antioxidants, carotenoids, essential amino acids, beta-carotene, chlorophyll, macronutrients, proteins, vitamins, DHA, EPA, fatty acids, including omega-3 and omega-6 to help balance our bodies and live a healthy life.

The human body has an amazing system, which keeps the body in balance. However, if a crucial component is depleted, such as a mineral or a vitamin, the body malfunctions leading to poor health. The addition of PuroTetra Tetraselmis Chuii Marine Phytoplankton can help restore the body to optimum health.

Marine Phytoplankton is a medicinal powerhouse created by Mother Nature. Perhaps the most important benefit of Marine Phytoplankton is it's unique ability to strengthen cell membranes and include cell regeneration!

Everything You Need for Rebuilding a Healthy Life

PuroTetra Tetraselmis Chuii Marine Phytoplankton is a complete food that contains a unique and extraordinary combination of life-sustaining nutrients. According to Board-certified family Integrative Medicine practitioner and author Dr. Hugo Rodier on Marine Phytoplankton;

"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 trace minerals are all present in Phytoplankton."

7 Evidence Based Benefits of Marine Phyoplankton

Benefits Cellular Energy

Phytoplankton offers a powerful clear burst of energy which is pretty much unparalleled. If you’ve got chronic fatigue syndrome, are a sleep-deprived parent of young children, or a doctor working a double shift, a dose of Phytoplankton can seriously bring you back from the edge. It is a rich source of nucleotides, building blocks of DNA and RNA that increase motivation, energy expenditure and cognitive function. Because of its tiny cell size (5-7 times smaller than a red blood cell) the Phytoplankton is absorbed directly through the mucous membranes and one can feel the results very quickly of taking it. According to health educator David Wolfe, Phytoplankton delivers "vital life force at the mitochondrial level for energy production"

Phytoplankton is a Potent Anti-Inflammatory

Scientific research indicates that inflammation plays a fundamental part in many major diseases. Inflammation is the body’s signal of imbalance, playing a significant role in conditions such as arthritis, Crohn’s, cancer, Parkinson’s, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and dementia to name only a few. How does Phytoplankton combat inflammation? It does so with it’s high natural content of Omega 3 fatty acids, of which it is the richest vegetarian source of the long chain fatty acids. It is also a rich source of anti-inflammatory chlorophyll, furthering its efficacy in conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis.

Improves mood and healthy sense of well-being

Depression is a serious global issue right now, so it’s positive to note that Marine Phytoplankton is amongst those plant-based supplements which can make a difference. Backed by a pilot study by the University of Utah, USA, concluded that Phytoplankton users exhibited a significant boost on the Short Form-36 emotional subscale questionnaire. Compounds in Phytoplankton make it an easy and exceptional way to increase mental clarity and focus, improve memory, calm mental stress and even prevent certain neurological issues.

Gram for gram, Marine Phytoplankton is likely the most nutrient-dense, alkaline superfood on Earth. This is a superfood that contains all known minerals, all known amino acids and almost everything you could name that could be potentially missing in our nutrition!

Benefits the Immune System

Containing a wealth of powerful antioxidants, as well as caretonoids, amino acids, vitamins and bioflavenoids, Phytoplankton helps the body scavenge harmful oxygen molecules as well as playing a critical role in immune system regulation.

Benefits the Skin

Marine Phytoplankton offers tremendous benefits to the skin, due to a combination of its anti-inflammatory, alkalising properties, combined with high EFA content. The bioflavonoids purify the skin, while protecting it from the detrimental effects of stress. For many sufferers of chronic skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema Phytoplankton supplementation is proving to be a break-through strategy.

Promotes Joint Health

As one of nature’s own vegan sources of long-chain Omega 3 Fatty Acids, Phytoplankton is a fantastic way to support joint health. Sufferers of arthritis who add a teaspoon or two to their daily diet may benefit from increase muscle mobility and reduced inflammation. In addition, Phytoplankton contains Pantothenic Acid (B5), which may useful for both osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. The amino acid proline offers essential benefits to the body’s connective tissues, promoting the formation of collagen. Manganese helps mobility.

Benefits Cardiovascular Function

Containing nutrients such as niacin and gamma linolenic acid to help lower cholesterol, Phytoplankton is also nature’s highest source, by weight, of Omega 3 Fatty Acids. These EFA’s may help lower triglycerides, one of the principle components of human body fat, reduce stroke and heart attack risk, and promote a regular heartbeat. They also lessen the growth of atherosclerotic plaque and have a moderate effect on blood pressure.

What Doctors say about Marine Phytoplankton

Dr. Bob Rowe has been working closely with the anecdotal evidence, and he feels that the nutritional properties of Marine Phytoplankton appear to work at the cellular level to repair the liver and the nervous system, improve endocrine function, and to correct sleep disorders and weight problems.

“Chronic conditions possibly caused by nutritional deficiency and inflammation at the cellular level have been quickly reversed with natural Marine Phytoplankton. Astounding health changes have been reported including dramatic improvements in cardiovascular function, blood sugar regulation, digestive function, weight loss, immune function, sleep quality, mental clarity and energy levels.”

Dr. Bob Rowe consultant member of the EPA Science Advisory Board

“In my many years as a health practitioner, I have found Marine Phytoplankton to be one of the most superior products I have encountered. It has demonstrated remarkable health benefits by restoring and promoting balance and strength in all those that have used it, and the duration of use is unlimited. I am confident and grateful to recommend it to my patients, my colleagues and my family as pure and healthy support for optimal health and well being.”

Dr. Jerry Tennant, M.D.

“As a health care practitioner, I am open to excellent products to enhance the health of my patients. I have experienced Marine Phytoplankton to be compatible with patients with no side effects. Phytoplankton is just pure, nutrient dense nutrition. This product is a natural combination of nutrients including antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fatty acids for good health.”

Hugo Rodier M.D.

“Marine Phytoplankton is a food that contains almost everything you need for life (and the rebuilding of a healthy life). It contains the nine amino acids that the body cannot make and must be consumed in our diet (essential amino acids). The essential fatty acids are also present (Omega 3 and Omega 6). Vitamins A (betacarotine), 81 (thiamine), 82 (riboflavin), 83 (niacin), 85 (pantothenic acid), 86 (pyridoxine), 812 (cobalamin), C, and D (tocopherol) and major and trace minerals are all present in Phytoplankton. In short, it contains almost every¬thing one needs to sustain life. Therefore, it contains almost everything one needs to restore health by providing the raw materials to make new cells that function normally.”

Vince Ziccarelli MSc. RD FICN

“There are many reasons why I recommend sea vegetables as part of my healing programs - weight loss, cellulite control, detoxification, beautiful hair and skin, and more. Sea vegetables can transform your health! I believe that when we eat sea vegetables, we are tapping into the ancestral and restorative source of all life - the ocean. Include sea vegetables into your diet every day and you'll see a difference. I do! Sea plants - gifts from the sea!”

  • Consuming Berries also help to improve cognitive health as well as supporting eye health, as a result of its high Antioxidants.

Fish Collagen Peptides

  • From Japan, extracted from fish skin of freshwater fish. Its molecular size between 500 – 2000 Dalton, thus it is very small and easily absorbed via intestine and enters our bloodstream more quickly.
  • Fish Collagen Peptides are smaller in particle sizes compared to other animal collagens like porcine and bovine, thus it has higher bioavailability compared to other animal collagen.
  • Fish Collagen Peptides are Type 1 collagen, and they act as building blocks for youthful skin, strong connective tissues and bones.
  • Consuming Fish Collagen Peptides can replenish collagen loss due to aging and stimulate collagen synthesis in our body. This helps to reduce wrinkles and maintain a youthful look.

Astaxanthin (AstaReal)

  • From Japan, a naturally sourced Astaxanthin, extracted from algae Haematoccocus pluvialis.
  • Astaxanthin is known as the King of Antioxidant. It has been found to be 6000 times stronger than Vitamin C, 800 times stronger than CoQ10 and 550 times stronger than Vitamin E in its Antioxidant abilities.

  • Consuming Astaxanthin can help to reduce free radical damage caused by UV rays as well as reducing wrinkles while improving skin moisture and elasticity.

How to Take Marine Phytoplankton Powder/Tablet?

For most people, the taste of the Marine Phytoplankton is slightly seaweed like, tasting of the ocean. For anyone who has taken spirulina, chlorella or blue-green algae, the taste will be familiar. It’s intense, clearly highly nutrient-rich with mixed berries. One can chew, suck or swallow it whichever you prefer!

Why is Marine Phytoplankton so expensive?

The business of selecting and replicating specific strains of wild algae to find one with optimum benefits for human health is a complex one. Replicating the natural conditions of a plankton bloom in an artificial environment is no mean feat either. Then slow drying, packaging and shipping adds the final layer. We genuinely believe that the extraordinary result of all this hard work is the most potent, nutrient-dense and healthful stuff that a human could put in their bodies. As such, it’s cheap at the price!

Is it Grown on Land?

No, our Marine Phytoplankton Tetraselmis Chuii is grown within a commercial algal bioreactor in Portugal.

Is Your Phytoplankton GMO?

It is 100% GMO free.

Is Marine Phytoplankton the same as spirulina?

No it is not. Marine Phytoplankton is an oceanic plankton, spirulina is a blue-ish green cyanobacteria (algae) which grows in fresh water.

What the best Phytoplankton Dosage?

Our recommended dose of 1-2g per day would be a good place to start. Many people work up to much more than this with some chronic disease sufferers. We recommend taking it before lunch, so that the energy boost doesn’t intefere with your sleep. We would also suggest trying to be disciplined about taking it once a day – like anything your body responds to regularity.

What does Marine Phytoplankton taste like?

The powder/tablet tastes green, healthy, slightly aquatic. Not disimilar to spirulina, chlorella or wild blue green algae if you’ve ever taste those. We have combined it with mixed berries so it's easier to take.

Does Marine Phytoplankton need to be refrigerated?

No, it doesn’t. Just keep it in a cool, dry place and no refrigeration required.

Why is Phytoplankton a superior form of Omega 3 than fish or flax?

Heavy metals in fish is now a major health issue, with mercury a particular threat, as well as lead and DDE (the toxic product which appears when the pesticide DDT breaks down) In addition, PCB’s (polychlorinated biphenyls) are synthetic chemicals now appearing at toxic levels in fish, and the effects of these are so severe as to cause cognitive impairment in heavy fish eaters within a matter of months.

This is where Marine Phytoplankton, and particularly that grown in climate controlled bioreactors as opposed to the open ocean, offers a cleaner, healthier and distinctly safer solution. Not only does ingesting phytoplankton connect you with the primary source of EPA in the natural world, but you can do so with the surety that you are ingesting no nasties of any kind, no toxic residues, no heavy metals, no pollutants.

Is it safe to take Marine Phytoplankton if I am on medications?

Our Marine Phytoplankton is considered whole food, not a drug. Would you stop eating food when you are on medications? Just remember, as your health improves, you may not need some of your medications. As a precaution, always seek medical advice before stopping any medication.

Perhaps the most potentially serious concern involves the drug Coumadin / Wolfarin (a potent blood thinner). As your health improves, the degree of blood thinning in your blood may change, making an adjustment in the dose of the drug necessary. Please consult your physician if this is the case.

Can I take this with my other supplements?

Yes. Taking with any other supplement will only enhance your results.

I am allergic to shellfish; can I still take Marine Phytoplankton?

Marine Phytoplankton is not a shellfish. If you are concerned, simply place a small amount of the residual powder on the inside of the wrist after making a few “light” scratches and check for redness and irritation or consult your physician.

Does Phytoplankton Contain Iodine?

Iodine is typically found in macro-algae / seaweed, but NOT in Marine Phytoplankton (marine micro-algae).

Some seaweed have high iodine content such as Kombu/ Laminaria…etc, that prevent these seaweed products from being an official approval as food in different countries. This is due to the opinion from some that high iodine contents may cause harm (up to severe health problems) to the human metabolism.

More importantly regarding our Marine Phytoplankton species we cultivate, these microalgae species may contain only very minute traces of iodine, but this is such a very small minute quality that would not be a quantifiable /measurable amount in our algae.

Our Marine Phytoplankton Tetraselmis Chuii is approved by the European Commission as a Novel Food and is a high-quality source of micronutrients, bringing nutritional and functional benefits even when consumed in small daily concentrations.

  • Natural plant based source of essential micronutrients
  • Low fat, with around 58% of PUFA and 8% EPA on a total lipid basis
  • Free from allergens
  • 100% natural product
  • No additives or preservatives

What is Marine Phytoplankton good for?

It’s good for all humans, no matter what your state of health but, if you’re asking for specifics, it’s showing tremendous promise for people battling any kind of chronic disease, it’s helpful with fatigue and health conditions which cause fatigue, and it’s showing promise in anything involving mental health, due to it’s wide range of bio-available nutrients and high EPA. Athletes are using it to improve performance, aging people are using it to keep their brains agile, and health practitioners the world over are beginning to recommend it.

Marine Phytoplankton and Adrenal Fatigue

For many people suffering from adrenal fatigue, the addition of Marine Phytoplankton to a supplement regime can be one of the most profound shifts in your healing journey. Plankton works quickly, powerfully, and in as little as 24 hours people who have been living in a state of hysterical exhaustion for years have found their lives deeply improved. It is important to note that plankton cannot cure the underlying causes of adrenal fatigue, but it can offer a huge support to those suffering its effects. We believe that, of all the many health supplements which can aid the body to restore itself to full adrenal health, Marine Phytoplankton ranks as the most important.

What is adrenal fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue is a common 21st century malaise characterised by overwhelming tiredness, blood sugar crashes, swollen lymph glands, body aches and, in serious cases, chronic night sweats. Common in those who are under mental, physical, or emotional stress (i.e. most people in this day and age!) adrenal fatigue is what happens when your body’s fight of flight response becomes overtaxed.

Common Symptoms of Adrenal Fatigue

  • Groggy and listless upon waking up. Takes a long time to get going in the morning
  • Overwhelmed by stress
  • Low Blood Pressure
  • Frequent Urination
  • May be overusing stimulants like coffee – classic ‘caffeine junkie’
  • Generally poor immune system – always picking up whatever’s going around
  • Joint Pain
  • Diminished libido/low sex drive
  • Weight gain
  • Poor Circulation
  • Pervading sense of exhaustion which sleep doesn’t alleviate
  • Mild to moderate depression

Why Marine Phytoplankton is a unique supplement for combatting adrenal fatigue

Phytoplankton is a unique single-celled organism which, in addition to being one of the most nutritionally dense and complete foods on our planet, is able to be delivered to cells without being filtered out by the digestive tract or the liver. This is really the critical factor which separates it from every other supplement.

Marine Plankton and Mitochondrial Dysfunction

It is the bodies mitochondrial system which breaks down the food we eat in order to extract the basic currency of human existence known as ATP. ATP is what powers the cellular functions of the body and it is the ability of the body to efficiently cycle ATP which determines how much energy we have available. One of the things that has been noticed with those experiencing adrenal dysfunction and, even more so with advanced conditions like chronic fatigue, is that these individuals appear to exhibit mitochondrial dysfunction to some degree, meaning their capacity to extract energy from food is reduced.

When taking Phytoplankton, the entire need to even utilise the mitochondria is bypassed. Because of its minute size, Plankton delivers ATP (as well as AGB and ADB) directly to the cells. So, for an adrenal fatigue sufferer, it is as if your failing batteries have been suddenly overridden by a direct contact with the mains itself! The power of this most humble of plants to deliver the currency of life into our cells is incredibly exciting and there are scores of testimonials to be read from people who have found a profound improved quality of life only days after first taking Marine Phytoplankton.

Are there side effects of taking Marine Phytoplankton?

There are no common side effects of ingesting Phytoplankton supplements, although, as with many so-called ‘superfoods’, the body may experience a healing reaction when the product is first consumed. First documented by Adolf Jarisch (1860-1902) working in Vienna, Austria, and a few years later by Karl Herxheimer (1861-1942), the ‘Herxheimer Reaction’ brings with it flu-like symptoms including muscle pains and aching joints, sweating, bad breath, chills and a general feeling of being under the weather. This is not, in any way, suggesting that Marine Phytoplankton has a particular propensity for inducing Herxheimer reactions, but merely that, as with any powerful superfood, detoxification may occur if an unhealthy system is suddenly flooded with nutrition.

When is the Herxheimer Reaction Experienced?

People in good health rarely, if ever, experience the Herxheimer Reaction. Rather, it is when those with compromised immune systems start to see a change in their health that ‘Herxing’ commences. The theory is that, when large amounts of pathogens are killed off, the immune system reacts to the endotoxins. While people assume that they’re ill, the situation is, conversely, one of health returning. There’s no doubt, however, that healing reactions can be unpleasant and, depending on the level of immune depletion, they can last some time.

Marine Phytoplankton and the Herxheimer Reaction

Despite the extraordinary national density of Phytoplankton, very few people appear to be experience the Herxheimer reaction when taking it, even those who may be prone to this with other supplements. One of the reasons for this may be due to Phytoplankton’s incredibly small cellular size, which means it does not tax the bodies detoxification pathways unduly.

In a small number of cases, people have reported

  • Headaches
  • Flu like symptoms
  • Skin flushes

These reactions can be alleviated with drinking plenty of water and allowing the body as much rest as it’s asking for. Please remember, if these do occur, that the Marine Phytoplankton has not ’caused’ this, and that this isn’t an indication that this product is somehow harmful. Rather, you could take it as a positive sign that your body is returning to a state of equilibrium.

Time frames of the Healing Reaction with Phytoplankton

This is impossible to quantify as its down to the individual and their level of health. Some people report feelings lasting only a few hours, others up to a week.

What to do in the event of a Herxheimer Reaction

The best advice is to:

  • Listen to your body and rest as much as you need
  • Drink a liberal amount of clean, filtered or spring water
  • Skin brush to aid the lymphatic system
  • Consider all your organs of elimination, so psyllium husks may be useful if constipation becomes an issue
  • No need for exercise during the healing period
  • Eat lightly

Can Marine Phytoplankton Help With Weight Loss?

Phytoplankton’s extraordinary nutritional profile makes it a powerful addition to any weight loss program. We received scores of testimonials from people who added this to an overall wellness regimen, only to discover that it offered remarkable benefits to keeping their weight down. There are some obvious reasons why Phytoplankton might aid any weight loss program, but the best answer seems to be that plankton has this ability to simply go where it’s needed. Our experience suggests that it is the best product in the world for pushing anyone towards their optimum health situation.

Does Marine Phytoplankton Need to Be Open Cell Processed?

There are some Marine Phytoplankton manufacturers who claim that the algae needs to be open cell processed in order for it to be completely absorbed by the body. However, according to investigations and communication with various manufacturers, certain plankton species like Tetraselmis Chuii, because of its extremely small "nano" (meaning one-billionth) sized particles, it is fully bioavailable upon intake. Some company's also assert that it is a soft-celled algae, not a hard-celled one, like chlorella.

There is also the argument that when taking products that are not open cell processed, you would not experience any health enhancing effects if it wasn't absorbable. We definitely feel energized and nourished when consuming our Marine Phytoplankton, so the proof is also in how it makes you feel.

According to health educator David Wolfe, "Phytoplankton is 100% bioavailable to the human body, when you eat it, not a single part of it is wasted."

Marine Phytoplankton Powder/Tablet vs Liquid

We’re confident that powder is a superior product, which preserves the delicate cellular integrity of the Phytoplankton more efficiently, while offering you the maximum value for money.

If we consider that an average a litre of seawater contains between one hundred thousand and one hundred million plankton algae, a nutrient dense, near perfect food, we can see why the food industry is waking up the extraordinary power of Plankton. But drying this sensitive plant while preserving the super abundance of nutrients is no mean feat. In the case of bringing Phytoplankton to market, eliminating rival strains, and any competing bacteria are also key factors to consider.

Our process does everything possible to keep it happy, which means optimum growing conditions, and a very gentle spray drying process which does nothing to disturb it’s integrity. We deliver to you the exact same species composition as is found in nature, the way your body is intended to receive them. We do not manipulate the species.

Powder/Tablet is better value for money

Aside from the issue of cellular integrity, it simply makes sense to us that offering someone 100% of what they’re paying for, is a better value proposition than something diluted. For that reason, we’ve never been tempted to stock liquid Phytoplankton simply because we prefer to offer the purest, 100% unadulterated powder dried straight from nature’s source.

We are one of the largest European producers of microalgae and certified by the European Organic Production Certification, ISO 22000, Halal, Portugal Sou Eu, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and GMP+ FSA. We are a leader in premium-quality microalgae biomass, food safety and innovation.

There is a lot of misinformation on the web on Marine Phytoplankton. So when shopping for Marine Phytoplankton there are a few things to be aware of.

  • Don’t buy dropper bottles from any brand. You may be only getting 1500mg (1.5 gram) of Phytplankton. For your reference, at RM170 a piece that’s RM113.33 per gram = RM113,330 per kg! Now this may be an excellent business model, but is of zero value for you, the consumer.
  • Buy only 100% pure Tetraselmis Chuii powder or tablets.
  • A certificate of analysis (COA) should always be presented, at least upon request. This will not only give you a complete nutritional breakdown of the product, but will also assure you that heavy metal content is within safety limits and that there are no toxins present.
