Product information

Plankton, algae and their advantages

Plankton is the collective term for microscopic organisms that float in water and provide a staple food source for many fish. Phytoplankton is vegetable plankton that falls under the category of microalgae.

Algae are one the richest sources of vitamins and minerals compared to other food sources. Algae are also an excellent source of protein. More than 50% of dry weight is derived from the protein content, which often includes all 9 essential amino acids.

Why PlanktonHolland Marine Phytoplankton caps?

Marine Phytoplankton is completely vegetarian and organically produced. The only ingredient is Marine Phytoplankton microalgae (Nannochloropsis Gaditana). The capsule form makes it easy to swallow without the algae flavour being released.

Nutrients

The type of microalgae cultivated by PlanktonHolland (Nannochloropsis Gaditana) is not only rich in essential vitamins and minerals but also contains the polyunsaturated essential omega-3 fatty acid eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Much research is being done with products containing large amounts of EPA and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). EPA and DHA play an important role maintaining brain health. EPA/DHA contribute to cardiovascular health with a daily intake of 3 grams.

Marine Phytoplankton contains all 9 essential amino acids.

Additionally, Marine Phytoplankton is rich in iron and iodine. Some of the health benefits of Marine Phytoplankton based on the iron (1) and iodine (2) content in the recommended daily dose are:

  • Contributes to a normal cognitive function (1,2)
  • Contributes to the normal function of nerves (2)
  • Contributes to a normal energy-generating metabolism (1,2)
  • Contributes to a normal immune system function (1)
  • Contributes to a normal production of thyroid hormones and a normal thyroid function (2)

Extra advantages for vegetarians

The essential omega-3 fatty acids required by the body are EPA and DHA. EPA is normally not found in plants, only in animal products. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is a vegetable omega-3 fatty acid that is often used as an omega-3 supplement by vegetarians. The body can convert ALA to DHA and EPA, but this process is very slow. Additionally, the body can convert EPA to DHA, but not the other way around. Marine Phytoplankton is an excellent source of EPA for vegetarians. A shortage of DHA common in a vegetarian diet can be prevented with a high EPA intake through sources like Marine Phytoplankton.

Production process

PlanktonHolland controls Marine Phytoplankton production through strict internal quality standards. Production is certified according to international guidelines (ISO 22000, HACCP, and GMP).
PlanktonHolland uses primordial water from an underground reservoir in the Dutch Flevopolder for phytoplankton cultivation. This seawater has been sealed off for 130.000 years and contains the perfect composition of nutrients and minerals for algae cultivation. And this primordial water is of course also free of human-introduced contamination.

Packaging

Several nutrients in phytoplankton are light sensitive. For this reason, PlanktonHolland used special-made glass jars of Miron glass. This glass can only be penetrated by UV-A and infra-red spectrum light, which protects the light-sensitive compounds in the phytoplankton.
