The Western world is unhealthier than ever before, even as medical science seems to hold the promise of unlocking more and more secrets of the human body. Many of the foods we eat today — even common “nutritious” vegetables have simply lost almost all of their beneficial health effects and may even be harmful.
So what’s the answer? Going back to the planet’s roots. The most foundational of all nutrients was unknown to us for the longest time until it was officially discovered just a few decades ago. Nannochloropsis gaditana is the superfood of all superfoods. While this is no secret to anyone familiar to our industry, the fresh-harvest stabilization process isn’t something you read about every day.
Oceans Alive phytoplankton isn’t even remotely like your garden-variety powdered phytoplankton that most providers sell. This traditional process works all right for some nutrients, but phytoplankton tends to lose the vast majority of its nutritive value very quickly if not preserved in a very precise, delicate fashion.
To be certain, Oceans Alive phytoplankton was a challenge to perfect. We make extensive use of bioreactors, which are the ideal way to grow plankton in a simulated ocean environment. Once the plankton is ready, we place it in super-concentrated ocean water after removing all of its sodium chloride.
This stabilization process is the only way to lock in all of nannochloropsis’ incredible biological benefits. It’s just like picking a grape off the vine – the longer you wait to eat it after harvesting, the fewer nutrients you receive upon eating it. Fortunately, the stabilization and fresh-harvest process retains these incredible effects years down the road – even without refrigeration!
To sum it all up, the nutritional benefit gap between Oceans Alive phytoplankton and any other plankton product is what makes all the difference in the world.
