Superfood Sunday: Marine Phytoplankton

Over the years, I've been fortunate enough to have access to and try dozens of different superfoods.  Many of these have made such a difference in my health that I incorporated them into my daily routine.  However, one superfood really stands out among all of them.  The first time I tried Sunfood's Marine Phytoplankton, I knew this was something special.  Almost immediately, I noticed a shift in my energy levels, mental clarity, and alkalinity.  After a couple of years of use, I can sincerely say that phytoplankton is one of the best superfoods I've ever used for overall health.

So, what makes phytoplankton so special?  Well, phytoplankton is literally the foundation of the food chain in the ocean.  Everything in the ocean depends upon its existence.  Naturally, you can expect that a food like this would be packed with nutrition.  And of course, it is.  Like many other types of algae, the blue-green varieties of phytoplankton contain high amounts of chlorophyll.  Additionally, there are 90 or more ionic minerals, powerful antioxidants (specifically the blue pigment), essential fatty acids (EPA and DHA), and numerous vitamins and other phytonutrients.  In fact, you could consider phytoplankton one of Nature's perfect foods.  If you had to pick 5 or 6 foods to live on for a long period of time, choosing phytoplankton as one of them would be very wise.

With all of this concentrated nutrition, it's no surprise that recent studies support a host of benefits to your health.  The EFAs contribute to brain and nervous system health.  High quality antioxidants enhance the immune system and fight free radical damage.  The blue pigment contains anti-inflammatory as well as antioxidant support.  Also, phytoplankton has high levels of chlorophyll which is known to help with digestion, detoxification, assimilating minerals, forming red blood cells and fighting infection.  It's truly a powerhouse of nutrition and deserves to be called a superfood.

Of course, I highly recommend using Marine Phytoplankton from Sunfood. This plankton is grown in large vats in the sun within an environment that mimics its natural environment.  This ensures maximum nutritional quality without the dangers of ocean pollution.  It's the purest and most concentrated form of phytoplankton available.  It's also very easy to take.  I usually pour one dropper-full into a small glass of water first thing in the morning.

If you are not already taking this amazing whole-food supplement, I highly recommend trying it for a month and observing any differences in your health, energy and well-being.  Be healthy.
