Has anyone noticed A Micro-Algae that is quickly becoming popular as a pet supplement for our, four legged fur friends? And why, using even the smallest amounts of it, can improve your pets health.
What is it? Marine Phytoplankton
Phytoplankton is a micro-algae single-celled organism that is rich in trace minerals, chlorophyll, essential amino acids, omega 3 (DHA, EPA) carotenoids, antioxidants, nucleic acids, and necessary vitamins. As the name suggests, it is originally derived from the ocean, where it is responsible for creating over 90% of the earth’s oxygen supply. These single-celled phytoplankton don’t depend on the digestive system or liver for processing, making them extremely bioavailable source of nutrients on a cellular level.
While some species of whale can enjoy an active and reproductive life for up to 200 years, these giant marvelous sea creatures depend directly on this phytoplankton for their survival.
It’s important to know when it comes to our pet’s wellness, phytoplankton shouldn’t be mistaken for any old kelp or seaweed… This stuff is seriously powerful, even NASA itself has referred to marine phytoplankton as one of the most beneficial plants on earth.
Fish Oil VS Phytoplankton
Phytoplankton can be a great replacement for fish oil. While both have omega 3 (DHA EPA) Fish can hold mercury and other heavy metals, PCBs and more toxins. To add, Pacific fish are suffering from the effects of radiation. These unhealthy toxins can get passed to your pet and over ride any of the health values from the omega-3 fats. The lifespan of fish allows them to accumulate environmental contaminants, whereas phytoplankton have a short lifespan due too sensitivity to environmental change.
Phytoplankton For Skin & Coat Ballance
Marine Phytoplankton provides multiple benefits to the skin, due to it’s combination of its anti-inflammatory and alkalizing properties, mixed with high EFA content. Dogs who suffer from chronic skin conditions, the bioflavonoids cleanse the skin, while safe guarding it from the detrimental effects of further stress.
The nutrients in this micro algae super-food will help balance their skin and coat. This, in turn, helps reduce unwanted skin conditions like hot spots, excessive itching over shedding and more.
