What is Marine Phytoplankton?

Marine phytoplankton is comprised of countless tiny plant-like cells called “micro-algae”, which naturally transform sunlight, raw inorganic minerals and carbon dioxide to become the world’s super-food. About the size of red blood cells, they form the foundation of the food chain for all other multi-cellular marine creatures – from sponges to whales. Phytoplankton is nature’s perfect and complete food, packed with nourishment that can not only sustain all life but also add phenomenal nutritional benefits, unmatched by other foods.

Marine phytoplankton contributes over 70% of the planet’s oxygen production while providing a complete source of nutrition: proteins, vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, trace minerals, pigments, enzymes, chlorophyll, essential fatty acids, omega-3 oils and more. When consumed, these microscopic cells are instantly digested and their nutritional goodness rapidly incorporated into cells, tissues and organs – including vital nutrients like vitamins B12, C and E, magnesium, chlorophyll and potassium to name a few.

Not only does phytoplankton have all the vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, antioxidants and amino acids required for good health, it is so nutrient dense that only small amounts are required to deliver significant nutritional benefits. And since it contains all the minerals found in human blood – in nearly identical concentrations – it offers us a source of minerals far superior to that of any other foodstuff!


How Do Marine Phytoplankton Act as Detoxification Agents?

Phytoplankton has an alkaline pH, which when consumed help counter the acidity of diets high in refined sugars and red meat. The high density of nutrients found in algae is also a key factor, as many of these sustain cell metabolism and the integrity of human cell membranes as cells detoxify and renew themselves.

It is theorized that causes of diseases can be equated to a few specific mechanisms, all of which center on cell membrane function and structure, for example, the damage inflicted by inflammation, oxidation, toxicosis, and mitochondrial dysfunction. Micro-algae contain high levels of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory nutrients to protect membranes, fuel metabolism and aid detoxification processes.


What is Celltonâ„¢ Marine Phytoplankton ?

Celltonâ„¢ is an amazing product with over 200 types of diverse chlorophyll-rich plankton nutrients providing maximum health benefits. It is simply the best tasting and best source of marine phytoplankton ever produced.

The Canada Marine Bio-tech Research Centre is the only company in the world to develop technology to totally preserve the integrity of marine phytoplankton as “super-food”, and Celltonâ„¢ is the result. This revolutionary product is comprised of naturally occurring salt-water algae cultivated in commercial quantities once thought impossible, with no effect on the ocean’s abundance. Using an organic process, the phytoplankton is cultured to appoint where all nutrients are extracted in a form uniquely available to the human body. This pure, concentrated product – Celltonâ„¢ – makes it possible for your body to easily absorb and metabolize all the precious nutrients it requires.


What is the Science Behind Marine Phytoplankton?

Phytoplankton is the ultimate source of food for all multi-cellular life in the ocean, including some of the world’s largest and longest living animals. It is the ‘vegetation’ of the ocean. Phytoplankton also produces up to 70% of Earth’s oxygen.

Phytoplankton, or marine micro-algae, comprises hundreds of species of photosynthetic, unicellular organisms belonging to the Kingdom Protista.

Temperate coastal waters, such as those along Gulf Islands of British Columbia, B.C., Canada, are highly productive and support a diverse array of micro-algal species, including diatoms (Class Bacillariophyceae).

Canada Marine Bio-tech Research Center reporduces spring “bloom” conditions in a controlled environment to naturally grow the diverse array of species ultimately represented in the product called Celltonâ„¢.


Is Marine Phytoplankton Linked with Food Allergies, Intolerances or Sensitivities?

No allergic reactions have ever been linked to the consumption of marine phytoplankton. It is a safe, complete food.

Although phytoplankton has detoxifying effects, taking too much, too soon, can produce nausea and/or increased bowel movements. If so, simply decrease your daily intake for a few days until your body adjusts.


Does Phytoplankton Interact with Medication?

Marine Phytoplankton is a complete food supplement, rich in vitamins, minerals, carotenoids, protein and essential fats. Green plants and phytoplankton are sources of vitamin K, a substance that can affect the therapeutic properties of blood thinners. If you are taking blood thinners, only use this product under the guidance of your health care professional.


How do you take Marine Phytoplankton? What is the Recommended Dose?

The amount of Celltonâ„¢ you take should be tailored to your individual nutritional needs. We suggest 3 capsules (90mg) per day for routine health maintenance, while 5 capsules (150mg) daily may be taken to alleviate chronic conditions like psoriasis and diabetes.

Dosages of up to 10 capsules (300mg) per day may be consumed and tolerated in association with serious afflictions such as cancer.
