ULTANA Phytoplankton is a potent source of nutrition and is considered a vegan nutrition superfood. Combining 3 strains of microalgae, it offers a complex mix of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and omegas.
With its microscopic size cell, phytoplankton is highly bioavailable, meaning you can feel the results within about 20 minutes of taking it.
Its unique composition and its size make these microscopic algae able to nourish and boost energy production on a cellular level.
This potent combination of nutrients, directly or indirectly support the following:
- Healthy Immune System
- Fight inflammation and infections
- Reduce Anxiety
Keeping you fit and healthy!
Rich in vitamins and minerals, ULTANA Phytoplankton contributes to the normal function of your immune system.
Studies show that people that regularly take phytoplankton have higher levels of CD3 in their blood. CD3 (cluster of differentiation 3) is a protein complex and T-cell co-receptor, which plays a vital role in the immune response.
The amount of CD3 in the bloodstream indicates the presence of white cells, such as T-lymphocytes, which are responsible for eliminating viruses and bacteria from the body.
Studies support that phytoplankton helps increase T-cell levels, with a direct positive effect on the immune system, helping to fight infection.
ULTANA Phytoplankton also contains specific vitamins and minerals, that show to provide immune system support.
Zinc helps to maintain the integrity of the skin and lining of vital organs and the respiratory system (which are part of the innate immune system).
Vitamin B12 and iron are also essential for the production of haemoglobin which carries oxygen in the blood.
Antioxidants help protect the cell membranes, enzymes, and DNA from the harmful effects of free radicals.
These nutrients also help reduce inflammation in your body and play a critical role in regulating the immune system.
Recent clinical trials have found that increasing antioxidant intake via supplementation (specifically vitamins C, E, and A or beta-carotene) can significantly improve immune response.
Other studies show that supplementation is especially beneficial in individuals exposed to environmental sources of free radicals (like pollution).
Our multi-strain phytoplankton is high in the green pigment, chlorophyll, with 23.8mg per serving in a highly bioavailable form. Plants use chlorophyll and light to make their food, and we use it as medicine.
The molecular structure of the chlorophyll is similar to haemoglobin, which is a critical part of human blood. The only difference between the two is that the central atom for haemoglobin is iron and for chlorophyll it is magnesium. Due to its unique quality, chlorophyll performs the same function in the body as haemoglobin.
Chlorophyll works to purify the blood and alkalise the body. When the blood is clean, it is better equipped to protect the body and to carry oxygen more efficiently. When the pH of our body offers an alkaline environment, anaerobic pathogens, which promote the development of diseases, cannot survive. Hence, an oxygen-rich environment and a balanced pH help encourage the body’s natural ability to fight infections, boost energy levels, and accelerate the healing process. For these reasons, we say that the regular intake of phytoplankton may support and strengthen the immune system.
ULTANA Phytoplankton is unique due to its high content of the Omega-3 long-chain fatty acid, EPA. With 62mg EPA and 5mg DHA per gram serve, ULTANA Phytoplankton is recognised as ‘Good Source of Omega-3’ under the EU Food Standards guidelines.
ULTANA Phytoplankton contributes to your daily omega’s intake from a sustainable, ethical and safe source. It contains a high concentration of these omegas in a highly bioavailable ‘polar lipid’ form. Research has shown that omegas bound to polar lipids are more easily absorbed and digested than other omega-3 lipid forms.
ULTANA Phytoplankton, therefore, offers an optimal polar lipid form of omega without the environmental footprint. Omega-3 fatty acids are known as Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) because our body cannot produce them; we must consume them in our diet. They play an “essential” role in our health as they have many powerful health benefits for both body and brain.
Omegas may help:
- Reduce inflammation
- Balance moods
- Boost memory
- Protect eyes, brain and heart
- Improve digestion
- And much more.
Research shows that omega-3 EPA and DHA may help ease anxiety symptoms in people diagnosed with a range of physical and mental health problems. This is because they are abundant in the cell membranes of brain cells, with the vital role of preserving cell membrane health and facilitating communication between brain cells.
Researchers suggest omega-3s have effects on serotonin and serotonin receptors in the brain while also improving the moods thanks to their anti-inflammatory effects. A 2015 study highlights the ability of omega-3 to influence the gut-brain axis, acting through gut microbiota composition, and improving intestinal epithelial integrity. Inflammation and dysbiosis are conditions associated with some behavioural, mood, and psychological disorders, including major depressive disorder (MDD), anxiety.
In conclusion, we can state that there are countless studies showing the positive attributes of each vitamin and mineral present in ULTANA Phytoplankton.
We believe everyone will benefit from highly nutritious food, vitamins and minerals to boost energy, support immunity and improve our moods. Support your body with high quality, sustainable and 100% pure multi-strain microalgae powder!
