Winter is almost upon us.

And you’ll want to make sure that you’re feeling in top form when the cold weather strikes. Of course, eating healthy and adding fruit and vegetables to your diet can certainly help.

But there’s a new superfood on the scene and it could be just what you need to help maintain a healthy immune system this winter – Marine Phytoplankton. It’s locally made by Marphyl and it has a heap of benefits.

To help you see why it’s worth trying, we’ve compiled a list of five benefits that come along with Marine Phytoplankton.

100 % Natural and local

Marphyl Marine Phytoplankton which is sourced from Vancouver Island is an all-natural and wild superfood that can help optimize health while being environmentally sustainable. It’s vegan and non GMO. To make it better, taking one capsule is the equivalent of eating the Phytoplankton in over 400,000 litres of our local ocean water.

Responsible for two out of three breaths we take

Marine Phytoplankton has been at the base of the food chain for billions of years. It’s responsible for 50-75% of the oxygen we breath on land. Without Marine Phytoplankton, there would be no life. We are all connected to the ocean.

Full of nutrients

Marine Phytoplankton can be compared to Spirulina – a single specie micro algae from the lakes when Marphyl Marine Phytoplankton is a wild, multi specie micro algae from the ocean. The difference? Marine Phytoplankton is an ocean micro algae that has access to all the rich minerals and nutrients from the ocean versus only the ones from the lakes for Spirulina. On top of that, Spirulina is one type of micro algae when Marphyl Marine Phytoplankton represent all the micro algae species available in the pacific northwest ocean.

Marphyl’s Marine Phytoplankton contains up to 80 different species of Phytoplankton due to the richness of the pacific northwest waters. It has trace minerals, antioxidants, carotenoids, essential amino acids, beta carotene, chlorophyll, DHA, EPA, macronutrients, proteins, fatty acids, omega 3 and 6 and a concentration of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C and E. All that, 100% natural.

It’s sustainable

Marphyl Marine Phytoplankton is harvested under natural elements (sunlight, rain, wind) aka in the exact same way mother nature is harvesting it, not artificially in a lab. Marphyl produces their Phytoplankton sustainably by sending whatever they take in, back into the ocean, this way they are not impacting marine life, they only keep the natural harvest. They also donate 1% of their sales to Mission Blue, an organization that protects the ocean via Hope Spots around the world.

Other products

Additionally, Marphyl has created two other products from their harvest.

Product #1: By letting the Marine Phytoplankton settle and decompose, they created an amazing Liquid Natural Marine Phytoplankton Organic Soil Enhancer/Fertilizer that can give natural nutrients to your soil including potassium and phosphorus, necessary for the thriving of plants. Its good for use on indoor/outdoor plants (no smell at all), urban/vegetables garden, greenhouses, lawns, hydroculture etc.

Product #2: From the water being sent back to the ocean that was used for the harvest of phytoplankton, some is retained and dried to naturally create a gorgeous White Sea Salt for your food seasoning needs. They also added organic spices to it to create a variety of flavoured Sea Salts that taste amazing.
