Marine Phytoplankton is a saltwater micro-algae, which, like spirulina and chlorella, belongs to the single-celled algae. Algae are small microscopic plants. Phytoplankton have been at the base of the Earth’s food chain for billions of years since the first life in the oceans to the present day. All living things in the oceans are directly dependent on it. Moreover, marine phytoplankton provides about 70 percent of all oxygen on Earth. Life literally begins with marine phyto plankton.

What makes SomaVita’s Marine Plankton so special?
Given the rising levels of mercury and other toxic metals found in many cold-water fish, many scientists advise avoiding fish oil altogether. Moreover, fish cannot produce omega 3 themselves. They ingest this with the plant food, such as the phyto plankton. Marine Phyto Plankton from SomaVita delivers this valuable omega 3 with unprecedented high bioavailability to the human body without an intermediate step.
There are more than 40,000 species of phytoplankton. Only the species called Nannochloropsis Gaditana are suitable for human consumption. This is the algae that is used in SomaVita’s Marine Phyto Plankton.
In contrast to chlorella, the cell wall of Marine Phyto Plankton does not need to be cracked. The cell wall of the phytoplankton can be left intact because it is perfectly digestible for humans. No chemicals, heat or high pressure need to be used in production. Nor are preservatives, aids, colorings and flavors required.
Unsurpassed pure and pure
Our Marine Phyto Plankton is grown in a specially developed technologically advanced photobioreactor. This mimics the natural growth situation for the phytoplankton as much as possible. The bioreactor consists of transparent closed tube systems in which the Nannochloropsis Gaditana algae can grow undisturbed without competition from other algae. Only sunlight is used for natural photosynthesis. The water for the cultivation is extracted from primeval sea water (about 130,000 years old) that has been extracted from deep within the earth. This primeval seawater is 100% pure and very rich in minerals and trace elements.
The microalgae are grown on selected food grade nutrients under the HACCP-based ISO22000, Kosher and GMP+ certification. As a result, the cultivated Marine Phyto Plankton is guaranteed to be free of contaminants and heavy metals. The production system is environmentally friendly. No pesticides, herbicides or additives such as preservatives are used. Each production batch is continuously checked for quality according to all strict European requirements.
Incredibly rich in essential nutrients
Marine Phyto Plankton is very rich in nutrients with a high nutritional value. This algae contains a complete range of amino acids, chlorophyll, enzymes, vitamins, trace elements and minerals. Most importantly, it contains extremely high amounts of the omega-3 fatty acid EPA.
Among other components Marine Phytoplankton contains:
- Long-Chain Omega-3 Fatty Acids – EPA
- All essential fatty acids (Omega-3 and -6)
- All 9 amino acids that the body cannot make itself
- Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C and E
- Minerals (calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium)
- Trace elements (selenium, iodine, zinc and iron)
The Marine Phyto Plankton is incredibly rich in high-quality and essential oils with an exceptionally high bioavailability.
The Marine Phyto Plankton Nannochloropsis gaditana from SomaVita is an excellent source of valuable omega oils, in particular it excels in the essential fatty acid eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 20: 5 omega-3) which makes up 28% of the total fatty acids respectively.
The EPA is present as a phospholipid. This is an omega-3 phospholipid not found in any other vegetarian source. These phospholipids are also not found in other commercially available microalgae such as spirulina and chlorella. Phytoplankton phospholipids enhance the function of EPA through better absorption. Phospholipid carriers efficiently promote the transport of omega-3 fatty acids throughout the body and uptake across cell membranes. It can be said that the EPA in these phospholipids are naturally liposomally bound. The bioavailability and effectiveness of this EPA oil in our Marine Phytoplankton is exceptionally high.
Omega-3 fatty acids have a protective effect with regard to cardiovascular disease.
Omega-3 fatty acids lower blood pressure, clotting factor and blood fats and reduce the risk of arteriosclerosis and sudden heart failure.
In addition, they contribute to the formation of vasodilator tissue hormones, an increased fluidity of the cell membranes and an optimization of the flow characteristics of the blood.
Marine Phyto Plankton algae are rich in antioxidants. An important antioxidant is chlorophyll. This pigment makes the plankton turn green.
Marine Phyto Plankton Nannochloropsis gaditana is also a good source of several carotenoid pigments, including beta-carotene, violaxanthin, and vitamins, including tocopherols that act as antioxidants. Finally, marine phytoplankton Nannochloropsis gaditana is a source of various sterols and valuable minerals.
Because the molecules of the nutrients are no less than 5 times smaller than a red blood cell, the absorption of the nutrients is not dependent on the digestive system or the liver. As a result, Marine Phyto Plankton is 100% absorbed by the body, it immediately penetrates the cell. Marine Phyto Plankton is therefore naturally liposomal. This makes Marine Phyto Plankton unique.
In order to be able to store the valuable Marine Phyto Plankton as well as possible, we use the sustainable violet glass from Miron®. This glass acts as a natural filter, allowing only the rays of light to pass through that protect the contents and promote shelf life. The glass blocks all visible light, with the exception of violet light. This ensures optimum protection of the contents against the harmful effects of visible light, protecting the shelf life and efficacy.
It is recommended to keep the algae in the original packaging and to close it properly after opening.
Due to the Health Claims Regulation and the KOAG/KAG, we are allowed to use the powerful effect of the long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids – EPA, essential fatty acids (Omega-3 and -6), 9 amino acids that the body cannot produce itself, vitamins A, B1 , B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C and E, minerals (calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, magnesium), trace elements (selenium, iodine, zinc and iron), antioxidants and chlorophyll not mentioned here. By searching the internet with for example duckduckgo.com for one of the above nutrients and “research” one can find a lot of scientific health articles that specifically discuss this.
