Why Is There So Much Interest in Marine Phytoplankton?
One of the key ingredients in FGXpress Power Strips is marine phytoplankton in particular, Forever Green's special open-cell Alpha 3 CMP phytoplankton.
This is the super-nutritional component of this pain-relief product, and a big reason why I say it's so much more than pain relief
But what's the deal with phytoplankton?
I'd heard of it before, but I didn't understand really what it was or why it was such a big deal in the health market.
Here's what my research turned up:
What Is Marine Phytoplankton?
Marine Phytoplankton is a diverse group about 5000 known species, including Spirulina and Blue-Green Algae of all photoautotrophic microorganisms in the ocean.
means from inorganic carbon in seawater and photosynthesized sunlight, these tiny microscopic plants create edible organic compounds (and oxygen), making life on Earth possible.
All life begins with these phytoplankton: they feed the tiny organisms which feed the bigger organisms, and so on. They are the foundation of the aquatic food web, and thus the foundation of terrestrial food webs as well.
How Marine Phytoplankton Boosts
Human Health & Energy
As the ancient basis of the food web, marine phytoplankton is a superfood,
packed with tons of nutrition.
It contains virtually all nutrients needed not just for survival but for optimal health:
- trace elements,
- amino acids,
- enzymes, and
- cellular materials.
This means it promotes your optimum health by boosting your body's energy and supporting all your internal systems.
This is so important, because a healthy system maintains wellness and avoids disease.
As Dr Jerry Tennant reminds us, “[A diet] lacking in micronutrients will adversely affect every function, structure, and detoxification function of the human cell.
[Whereas] good nutrition will enhance the structure and function of all organs in our bodies...."
Health & Phytoplankton's Nutrient Boost
One of the problems with health these days is that our food is appallingly deficient in nutrients, and supplements like vitamin and mineral pills just aren't a good substitute we can't absorb them very well so most of it goes right on through us, and there's evidence increasing that they may even be bad for us!
In contrast, open-cell Alpha 3 CMP phytoplankton is completely bioavailable,
so your body can absorb and use 100% of all these nutrients and micronutrients. (See below for the explanation.)
Studies into the health benefits of phytoplankton are just beginning, but very promising (check out the medical studies
below). Personal testimonials point to great results, and many doctors and health advisors have seen enough to convince them.
Here are some quotes on what doctors have found:
Dr. Jerry Tennant M.D.
"There are very few products that provide all, or even most, of the raw materials to make new cells and sustain the existing ones. The problem is that we need ALL of them at the same time for things to work. 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 in marine phtyoplankton.
"Metabolically, our lipids and sugars can be optimized, thus providing more overall energy, minimize weight problems, & improve sleep."
Linda Page, N.D. Ph.D.
"There are many reasons why I recommend sea vegetables as part of my healing programs weight loss, cellulite control, detoxification, beautiful hair and skin, and more. Sea vegetables (phytoplankton) can transform your health.”
Hugo Rodier M.D.
"Marine phytoplankton can reduce depression, harmful effects of stress, and mood swings. These nutrients improve mental function, and memory.”
Steven Schecter, N.D.
"There is no family of foods more protective against radiation and environmental pollutants than sea vegetables ... sea vegetables can prevent assimilation of different radionuclitides, heavy metals such as cadmium, and other environmental toxins."
Rob Robertson, M.D.
"There is no other product in a nutritional substance, nor a drug, that has this kind of power and ability to affect our immune system. With the increase of killer viruses, mutated germs, super-resistant germs, and food contaminations, our only hope and defense, must lie within our own immune system."
Bioavailability Is The Key
It turns out, though, that not all marine phytoplankton are created equal. Some are very bioavailable, and some are not at all.
Bioavailability means that your body can absorb and use the nutrients.
It's the difference between swallowing a supplement that goes right through you without being assimilated, and nutrients that get right to work improving your health.
This is a particularly important point in terms of phytoplankton.
You see, phytoplankton have a “shell” of silica, which the human body can’t break down digestively meaning little if any nutrients can be absorbed. Not, that is, unless the cell wall is opened... as with Alpha 3 CMP.
This form of highly-concentrated, open-cell phytoplankton is so bioavailable that it is almost literally predigested.
On top of that, ForeverGreen’s AMP (Aqueous Molecular Partitioning) process also renders the entire phytoplankton water-soluble.
How does that benefit us? It means that FGXpress Power Strips give us instant and full nutritional bioavailability in the body!
Some Specific Benefits of Sea Plants Documented in Medical Literature:
Several studies and conferences have been dedicated to exploring marine phytoplankton's health benefits, many of which have been written up in scientific and medical journals.
Some of the most intriguing results point to:
- enhancing the immune system,
- protection against cancer and HIV,
- making iron more available to the body and building blood cells,
- reducing toxic metabolites resulting from consuming refined sugars,
- treating radiation sickness,
- decreasing kidney damage,
- treating flu and Herpes Simplex, and
- perhaps even improving Alzheimer’s disease.

What This All Means
Now you know what makes marine phytoplankton such a potent ingredient — it's a huge health boost, which helps your body find healing and balance again.
In fact, the nutrients available from FGXpress Power Strips' open-cell Alpha 3 CMP phytoplankton absorb much more completely than any supplement pill, and contain virtually every nutrient required for optimal health.
Now that I'm using the strips, I've given up taking supplements, other than Vitamin C and calcium/magnesium (which I need in large amounts), completely.
I've experienced the benefits of this myself, in greatly increased energy and stamina, as well as a sense of overall physical well-being and emotional balance. You can see my whole story: click here to see it.
I hope you get to experience the power of this incredible nutrient for yourself! !
