What Doctors say about
Marine Phytoplankton and Algae?
Earl Mindell's Vitamin
Chlorella has been touted as the perfect whole food. Aside from being a complete
protein and containing all the B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, and the major minerals (with zinc and iron in
amounts large enough to be considered supplementary), it has been found to improve the immune system, improve
digestion, detoxify the body, accelerate healing, protect against radiation, aid in the prevention of
degenerative diseases, help in treatment of Candida albicans, relieve arthritis pain and, because of its
nutritional content, aid in the success of numerous weight loss programs.
Healing With Whole Foods by Paul
Spirulina's predigested protein provides
building material soon after ingestion, without the energy-draining side effects of meat protein; its
mucopolysaccharides relax and strengthen connective tissue while reducing the possibility of inflammation; its
simple carbohydrates yield immediate yet sustained energy; its GLA fatty acids improve hormonal balance; and its
protein-bonded vitamins and minerals, as found in all whole foods, assimilate better than the synthetic variety.
Spirulina can generally be considered an appropriate food for those who exercise vigorously, as evidenced by the
many world-class athletes who use it
Chlorella and spirulina have such strong health benefits that even well-known doctors and authors use
these products and note their benefits:
Staying Healthy With Nutrition by Elson Haas, M.D.
It is possible that the GLA found in spirulina and possibly these other products accounts for some of
the positive effects that people experience when using them, including decreased appetite, weight loss, and
improved energy levels, especially mental energy. I personally have used all of these products and must say I
have experienced a subtle increase in mental clarity and alertness (not like a nervous, caffeine-type
stimulation). These algae must subtly stimulate our nervous systems or release certain internal neurochemicals
that create this "up" feeling.
Dr. Hugo Rodier M.D. - Board-Certified
"And so, we know that sea plankton has
all the right ingredients; the right amino acids, the right sugars, the right micro-nutrients, the right fats,
the right antioxidants, the right vitamins, in such a degree, that consumption of sea plankton alone, as a
superfood, should be very successful in treating practically all diseases."
Dr. Bob Rowe - Chiropractor in British Columbia
Quotes: "If it (phytoplankton) feeds the largest creatures on the planet (whales), it must have an
amazing, rich, nutrient value." "If you go back to the literature and look at what actually keeps us healthy,
it's not the individual nutrients, it's not vitamins, it's not particular minerals, but it's the
Dr. Bob Rowe (consultant member of the EPA Science Advisory Board) has been working closely with the
anecdotal evidence, and he feels that the nutritional properties of marine phytoplankton appear to work at the
cellular level to repair the liver and the nervous system, improve endocrine function, and to correct sleep
disorders and weight problems.
“Chronic conditions possibly caused by nutritional deficiency and inflammation at the cellular level
have been quickly reversed with natural Marine Phytoplankton. Astounding health changes have been reported
including dramatic improvements in cardiovascular function, blood sugar regulation, digestive function, weight
loss, immune function, sleep quality, mental clarity and energy levels.”
Vince Ziccarelli MSc. RD
“Marine Phytoplankton is a food that
contains almost everything you need for life (and the rebuilding of a healthy life). It contains the nine amino
acids that the body cannot make and must be consumed in our diet (essential amino acids). The essential fatty
acids are also present (Omega 3 and Omega 6). Vitamins A (betacarotine), 81 (thiamine), 82 (riboflavin), 83
(niacin), 85 (pantothenic acid), 86 (pyridoxine), 812 (cobalamin), C, and D (tocopherol) and major and trace
minerals are all present in phytoplankton. In short, it contains almost everything one needs to sustain life.
Therefore, it contains almost everything one needs to restore health by providing the raw materials to make new
cells that function normally.”
Dr. Jerry Tennant, M.D.
“In my many years as a health practitioner, I have found Marine Phytoplankton to be one of the most
superior products I have encountered. It has demonstrated remarkable health benefits by restoring and promoting
balance and strength in all those that have used it, and the duration of use is unlimited. I am confident and
grateful to recommend it to my patients, my colleagues and my family as pure and healthy support for optimal
health and wellbeing.”
Dr. Lisa J. Lundy, B.Sc.,
“Eighty percent of the diseases doctors
see are chronic conditions, which occur because we’re not eating right. Most people fall victim to whatever
foods they see on television. The micronutrients and electrolytes in natural Marine Plankton are exactly what
human cell membranes need to carry out their metabolism. Not surprisingly, the composition of human plasma, or
fluid surrounding cell membranes, is similar to that of sea water. Relying solely on land-based food sources may
lead to deficiencies in these micronutrients and electrolytes. While transient sub-optimal nutrition may be
forgiven, a constant diet lacking in these micronutrients will adversely affect every function, structure, and
detoxification functions of the human cell, leading to practically all diseases. There are very few products
that provide all, or even most, of the raw materials to make new cells and sustain the existing
The problem is that we need ALL of them
at the same time. One of those rare products that contains almost everything you need for life (and the
rebuilding of a healthy life) is marine phytoplankton. It contains the nine amino acids that the body cannot
make. The essential fatty acids are also present (Omega 3 and Omega 6). Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C,
D and major and trace minerals are all present. Marine phytoplankton can reduce harmful effects of stress,
depression and mood swings.”
~ Hugo Rodier M.D.
“As a health care practitioner, I am open to excellent products to enhance the health of my patients.
I have experienced Marine Phytoplankton to be compatible with patients with no side effects. Phytoplankton is
just pure, nutrient dense nutrition. This product is a natural combination of nutrients including antioxidants,
vitamins, minerals and fatty acids for good health.”
~ Dr. Penny Pals,
As a natural health practitioner, I have
spent the past 10 years researching and trying hundreds of nutritional supplements and dietary programs. I came
to the conclusion about 3 years ago that “loading” patients up with bottles of vitamins, herbs, enzymes, and
other assorted supplements was not the solution because this approach was too overwhelming and time-consuming
for the majority of people to follow.

Nannochloropsis Gaditana is the world's top level resource of DHA
(Docosahexaenoic acid), an omega-3 fatty acid that Dr. Mehmet Oz (also known as "America's Doctor") recently
declared the most important food supplement you can take.
Jenny Tennant, MD, head of the Tennant
Instutute of Intergrative Medicine in Dallas.
"Phytoplankton is one of the most rare
ingredients on the planet because it contains, in a concentrated form, almost everything you need for life or
the rebuilding of a healthy life."
who are extremely ill ... you can't get their system to absorb the raw materials needed to make neurochemicals,"
states Dr. Tennant. "The marine phytoplankton are microscopic plants .... Because they are so microscopic, they
go right through a sick digestive system and a sick liver, and you'll be able to start restoring neurochemicals
and minerals even in somebody who's critically ill. Nothing else I know of will do
Hugo Rodier, MD, Nutrition professor at University of Utah Medical School.
"Marine Phytoplankton is an ideal food for mankind. It's Mother Earth's milk from the ocean. The
research we are designing at the University of Utah Medical School testing the health benefits of Marine
Phytoplankton is very exciting and promising."
