As the US leading supplier of marine phytoplankton powder, people often ask us why we sell powder over liquid marine phytoplankton. And that’s a good question, which we’d like to address in this blog post.
A simple answer
We sell marine phytoplankton powder because we’re confident it’s an absolutely superior product, which preserves the delicate cellular integrity of the phytoplankton more efficiently.
Marine phytoplankton powder
On average, a liter of seawater contains between one hundred thousand and one hundred million plankton algae. It’s a nutrient dense, near perfect food and the food industry is only now waking up to the extraordinary power of plankton.
The drying process of plankton is no mean feat. The super abundance of nutrients need to be preserved, while eliminating rival strains and any completing bacteria.
Happy phytoplankton makes for the best nutritional supplement
Growing phytoplankton is a very delicate process. Our marine phytoplankton is not grown in the open ocean due to
pollution concerns, instead this product is grown under controlled, purified conditions in a photo-bioreactor located in the European Union.
Our phytoplankton is produced using genuine sea salts provided straight from the sea and other natural minerals. Only natural ingredients are used in the phytoplankton growing process, ensuring our product is of the highest quality possible for human consumption.
If phytoplankton is stressed during its growth cycle, the cell wall hardens, which is not something we want in a nutritional supplement. The lab does everything possible to keep the marine phytoplankton happy, which means optimum growing conditions and a very gentle, organic drying process which doesn’t disturb the integrity of the product.
Our algae processing is done according to the DIN ISO 9001 : 2000 standards, and is also HACCP certified.
Powder equals better value for money
In addition to the above mentioned cellular integrity of our marine phytoplankton, it simply makes sense to us that offering you 100% of what you’re paying for is better value for money than a product that’s diluted.
For these reasons, we offer the purest, 100% unadulterated powder dried straight from nature’s source.
Omega-3 The oceans of Earth contains trillions of fish and phytoplankton. Both fish and phytoplankton are good sources of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. But which one is the better option? Alternative Research of the University of Maryland Medical Center has indicated that dietary omega-3 fatty […]
Dosage How much marine phytoplankton you take should be based on the results you are looking for from this product. People take the capsules or powder, for different reasons. Some people are already fairly healthy and are just looking for a healthy product to their […]
These days, you’ll find a plethora of users sharing their experiences with the Keto Diet on social media. But the Keto/Ketogenic Diet is far from a new “fad diet”; it’s been around for quite some time. In this article, we investigate what MCTs are and what role MCT Powder has in a Keto Diet.
So – what is it?
The Ketogenic Diet is a very low carb, high fat diet that has been used by doctors since the 1920’s to treat patients with serious illnesses, like intractable epilepsy and rare disorders of carbohydrate metabolism.
In recent years, the Keto Diet has been gaining more and more attention. The diet promotes weight loss by forcing the body to burn fat for energy. These days, a wider audience is considering trying the Keto Diet, including those interested in benefits beyond weight loss.
The Keto Diet offers a range of health benefits, like a reduced risk for diabetes, increased energy and protection against age-related neurological diseases.
MCTs and the Keto Diet
If you are new to the Keto Diet, you may be wondering what MCT stands for. MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglyceride.
To understand what MCTs are, you need to know a bit more about dietary fat in general.
Dietary fat is made up of fatty acids and these can be classified as short, medium or long-chain, depending on their length.
Most of the fat in the foods we consume is a form of triglycerides, which are made up of 3 fatty acids.
These triglycerides can be classified as short, medium or long-chained. A long-chained triglyceride contains 3 long chain fatty acids; a medium-chained triglyceride contains 3 medium chain fatty acids; and a short-chained triglyceride contains 3 short chain fatty acids.
How your body processes triglycerides
There is a difference in how your body processes Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) compared to Long Chain Triglycerides (LCT).
1. Digestion and absorption
MCTs are shorter in length, and are therefore more easily digested and absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract than LCTs.
Once dietary fat is absorbed by the gastrointestinal tract, the body must then transport it to the liver where it is metabolized to produce energy. MCTs are transported directly from the gastrointestinal tract through the bloodstream to the liver. In comparison, LCTs must take a longer route through the lymphatic system then through the circulatory system before finally reaching the the liver.
The metabolism of MCTs is unique as well. Fat metabolism occurs in the mitochondria of the liver. LCTs require a substance called carnitine to enter the mitochondria, however MCTs can enter mitochondria freely so they are not limited by the presence of carnitine.
How is MCT used in the Ketogenic Diet?
Let’s circle back to MCT powder. Remember that the Ketogenic Diet works by switching the body’s metabolism from using glucose for energy to using fat for energy, which produces high amounts of ketones in the body.
The unique features of MCTs make it useful with the Ketogenic Diet because MCTs are capable of producing more ketones than regular fat (which is mostly LCT).
Although a small number of foods contain a percentage of MCTs (such as coconut oil, palm kernel oil, and butter fat), pure MCT oil is not found naturally.
This is where MCT Deoiled Powder comes in. Incorporating high amounts of MCTs into the diet allows users to stay in ketosis while consuming relatively higher amounts of protein and carbohydrates.
This supplement is ideal for any person who is on a low-carb diet/Keto Diet or wants to attain the benefits of medium chain triglycerides.
MCT powder can be used anytime you want to add ketone boosting fats to your diet. It can be added to protein shakes, hot chocolate, soups, sauces and baked goods.
When you do high-intensity workouts, you can add them to your water to give you some extra mental and physical energy.
MCT can also be used when fasting. Sure, you do add calories during this time, but these are burned off rapidly. They also provide you with mental clarity and energy until the fast is over. If you’re tired during a fasting, add a little MCT powder to your water to kickstart your metabolism.
It doesn’t matter why you choose to use MCT powder because it’s effective and easy to use.
