Benefits of Umac-Core Phytoplankton
from the Greek words phyto (plant) and plankos (wandering), phytoplankton are not ocean plants but single-cell aquatic organisms
that can be found in both fresh and salt water ecosystems. High in nutrition and health benefits, phytoplankton are
bursting with nano-sized nutriient particles that are easily absorbed by the human body and readily available for use at the
cellular level. Marine phytoplankton is a vegan-safe, micro-algae that can be compared to other nutritional algae like spirulina
and chlorella, but phytoplankton might be even more potent and amazing.
Like seaweed, phytoplankton are not actually plants. Seaweed is a macro-algae
while phytoplankton is a micro-algae and a type of plankton. Among the oldest, most complete form of nutrition available,
tiny micro-organisims with the ability to convert energy from the sun into essential nutrients. These organisms, are collectively
referred to as phytoplankton. Plankton is a marine and freshwater organism that is too small or weak to swim against the current
so they exist in a drifting or wandering state. And they continue to thrive today. Phytoplankton absorb energy from the sun
(photosynthesis) and nutrients from the water to produce their own food. An estimated 50-85% of the Earth's oxygen is produced
by this type of plankton photosynthesis with the remainig percentage being produced by land based plant photosynthesis. Marine
phytoplankton grow abundantly in the world's oceans and are the foundation of the ocean's food chain. All other life in the
ocean depends on them to servive.
The abundance of micronutrients in marine phytoplankton have been shown to help
maintain human cell membranes in structure and function; a vital element for cell detoxification and overall metabolism of
human cells. From the pristine temperate waters of the Pacific Northwest comes UMAC-CORE; a concentrated blend of these minute
yet mighty micro-organisms. Umac-core has a patent pending ingredient, Alpha 3 CMP (Concentrated Marine Phytoplankton), is
a concentrated blend of marine phytoplankton species that contains dense micronutrients that support cellular health and promotes
energy and vitality.
Umac Marine Phytoplankton contains high levels of antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory
micrnutrients to fuel metabolism and detoxification. Also, they stoke the fires of the Mitochondria, where cells make energy
required to carry out their function. Through the process photosynthesis, marine phytoplankton harness life-sustaining solar
Our in depth research has produced very compelling evidence that marine phytoplankton is highlybeneficial
for supporting cellular health and promoting energy and vitality.
The most important thing to remember when dealing with algaer is
that not all algae are phytoplankton. However, all phytoplankton are phytoplankton are algae. In addition, not all phytoplankton
are marine algae. The primary differance between our product UMAC-Core and others on the market is that we provide a natural
blend of indigenous species with a suite of nutrients.
Marine phytoplankton, also known as marine microalgae,
comprise thousands of species of photosynthetic, unicellular organisms belonging to the Kingdom Protista. Temperate coastal
waters, such as those along British Columbia (BC), experiance high levels of productivity and support a diverse array of microalgal
species from numerous groups called classes.
The word "microalgae" is a very broad term for all microscopic,
photosynthetic protists. (Technically, algae are not plants because they lack a vascular system.) Microalgae that float or
swim in the well-lit regions of the oceans, lakes and other water bodies are termed "phytoplankton". Microalgae
that live on the surfaces like the sea floor, wharf pilings, or river bottoms are termed "benthic microalgae". Simplyput,
all phytoplankton are microalgae, but not all microalgae occur in the plankton.
"Algae" is one of
the most misused terms in the consumer markets partly because in science, the term "algae" can refer to any plant
in a wet environment without true roots or leaves. With such a broad definition as "wet environment" distinctions
between marine, freshwater or even land based agal growths are often misrepresented. Often the terms "microalgae"
and "macroalgae" are used in an attempt to distinguish between microscopic organisms such as phytoplankton and larger
organisms such as seaweed or kelp. Although these terms have helped, much confusion still exists. Just as "algae"
has a broad definition, so does phytoplankton. Among the various classes of phytoplankton you find marine, freshwater and
terrestrial based species. So, just because someone lables a product
microalgae or phytoplankton the reality of
what they are using is usually different. Most of the world's current production of microalgae for human consumption centers
on the genera D Chlorella (Chlorophyceae), Dunaliella (Chlorophyceae), and Spirulina (Cyanphyceae). These organisms generally
require extreme conditions to grow, conditions which facilitate easy cultivation due to low risk of contamination (by fungus
and bacteria, or other microalgae). For instance, Dunaliella salina requires very requires very high salanites while cyanobacteria
like Spirulina plantensis need highly alkaline conditions. Most microalgae species, however, grow best in conditions that
are optimal for hundreds of other species.This is primarily why so much research is directed to scaling up photobioreactors
- enclosed growth chambers where all aspects of the environment are controlled and contamination is minimized.
UMAC Marine Phytoplankton Benefits
Marine microalgae, also known as phyto-plankton,
comprise over 200 spcies of photosynthetic, unicellular organisms belonging to the Kingdom Protista. Temperate coastal waters,
such as those along British Colombia (BC), are highly productive and support a diverse array of microalgal species from numerous
Classes, including the primary producers called diatoms (Class Bacillariophyceae). Phtyoplankton are microscopic plants that
live in the ocean. There are many species of phytoplankton, each of which has a characteristicshape. Collectively, phytoplankton
grow abudantly in oceans around the world and are the foundation of the marine food chain. Small fish, and some species of
whales, eat them. Larger fish then eat the smaller fish. Humans catch and eat many of these larger fish. Every spring, when
conditions of light, nutrients, and mixing are optimal for growth, diatomsm grow rapidly in the euphotic zone (upper 20 m).
This event is known as the "spring bloom". During this period, many species take advantage of the enhanced conditions
but generally three diatom genera are the most successful D Skeletonema, Thalassioaira, and Chaetoceros. Spring bloom conditions
are reproduced by Unique Sea Farms of Nanaimo, Vancouver Island in a controlled environment, and this diversity of species
is represented in the product UMAC-Core.

Excellent Source of Micronutrients
UMAC-Core is a complete whole
food providing a wide spectrum of essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals and amino acids.
Adding Marine phytoplankton to your diet may be able to help your mood, making it a strong
addition to any anti-depression diet plan. A pilot study conducted at the University of Utah shows significant improvemennts
in depression symptoms after regularly taking it as a supplement. Participants reported feeling full of life, increased energy,
and feeling calm and at peace.
can have the same oxygenating and detoxifing effects on the body as it does in the ocean. Our blood, as our bodies are mostly
water, but what is interesting is the fact that plasma (the watery part of the blood) contains salt and other ions that is
very similar to sea water.
Researchers and nutritionists have added phytoplankton to the list of
superfoods like spirulina, chlorella and astaxanthin for a good reason. It is beleived that phytoplankton is the best bioavailable
source of 'superoxide dismutase (SOD). SOD is the most powerfull antioxidant enzyme found in the body, it plays the critical
role of reducing oxidative stress, damage and inflammation, and it is has been shown to be effective in heavy metal detoxing.
and Immune System Booster
Phytoplankton can easily be absorbed on a cellular level, the body need
not process through the digestive system or the liver. This not only assists the body to obtain nutrients when the liver is
impaired, but can help restore the liver to health without further taxing the detoxification pathways of the body.
addition people taking phtoplankton have higher levels CD3 in their bloodstream. The amount of CD3 in the blood is indicative
of the presence of T cells (T-lymphocytes), which are essential for immunity. T cells help eliminate bacteria and viruses
from the body so if marine phytoplankton increases T cell levels, then there is a positive effect on the human immune system.
Marine Phytoplankton are rich in amino acids, antioxidants, minerals and omeg-3 fatty
acids (both DHA and EPA). These are some of the top things a person needs on a daily basis from their diet and from supplements
to keep their heart healthy. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to promote healthy brain, heart and nervous system function,
as well as reduce inflammation and improv overall health.
UMAC Marine Phytoplankton
UMAC (Unique Marine Algae Concentrate) uses Alpha 3 CMP as the base of their
products. Alpha 3 CMP is a unique nutrient-rich of marine phytoplankton harvested from the pristine temperate coastal waters
of the northwest Pacific Ocean. It is classified as brown algae and is a blend of several species of marine phytoplankton.
The turbulence created by the interaction of fresh water and ocean water draws from additional deep water nutrients to create
an exceptional cauldron of life to support a diverse array of marine phytoplankton species.
patent-pending process harvests natural seawater, capturing the marine phytoplankton in million-liter tanks. This is the only
known product to take natural marine phytoplankton communities containing a complete suite of marine trace elements in proportion
to those found naturally in human tissue. Through this unique this unique growing and harvesting process, quality control
and testing is employed to ensure the highest quality products, providing assurance that no pathogens, toxins, heavy metals
or contamination has occurred to the natural marine phytoplankton. The concentrated paste contains hundreds of species (primarily
from the larger,nutrient-rich Bacillariophyceae classification commonly known as diatoms). Through the harvesting process
the Company's proprietary technology breaks down the cellular walls, seperating the silicate walls and releasing the nutrients
that are otherwise encapsulated. This process makes the nutrients immediately bioavailable. The raw paste at this point contains
approximately 85% water. If next goes to a leading phytopharmaceutical manufacturer and private labeler in Vancouver, British
Columbia, Canadian Phytopharmaceutical Corporation (CPC), which is fully certifed Good Manufacturing practices (cGMP) by Health
Canada, where it is further concentrated, passing through the highest standard quality assurance procedures (sanitized and
stabilized) to certify Alpha 3 CMP is safe for human consumption.
UMAC has developed and formulated two products
for human consumption. The capsule product contains organic maltodextrin as a delivery system. The concentrated liquid product
is in a base of organic glycerin. The products utilize the micronutrients found only in the ocean. Each provides a wide spectrum
of nutrients including vitamins, amino acids (protein), rare trace elements, minerals and cellular materials needed to achieve
and maintain a healthy and energetic lifestyle.
Marie Phytoplankton FAQ
Who should be taking UMAC-Core marine phytoplankton?
It is a whole and complete superfood that all may benefit from.
Why should I take UMAC marine phytoplankton?
Phytoplankton harnesses the sun's energy through photosynthesis. The micro-nutrients and electrlytes in plankton are exacly
what human cell membranes need to carry out their metabolism. When the membrane is damaged due to lack of nutrients and poor
diet, the cell communication that coordinates metabolism is disrupted causing an array of problems.Phytoplankton nourishes
cells at the cellular level.
Can I take this with my other supplements?
Yes. Taking UMAC
with any other supplement will only enhance your results.
Is it organic?
It is naturally
grown without thew use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides or preservatives. The plankton is fed an organic food grade
Does UMAC help with weight loss?
It is such a nutritionally dense
product, marine phytoplankton should help with cravings because the body is getting more of what it needs to function properly.
I am allergic to shellfish, can I still take UMAC?
Alyhough marine phytoplankton comes fom the ocean, it is
not shellfish. If you are concerned, simply place a bit of the liquid on the inside of the wrist after making a few "light"
scratches and check for redness or irritation or consult your physician.
Is it safe for vegetarians
Absolutely! It is 100% vegetarian in a vegetarian capsule.
Is your manufacturing
plant causing environmental damage?
Quite the opposite! It actually benefits. The phytoplankton absorb up
to 50% of the Earth's carbon dioxide while emitting up to 90% of the Earth's oxygen. After harvest, the remaining ocean water
in the tank flows back to the ocean in a pure, clean, pristine condition. This is a 30 million doller facility that has ZERO
toxic emissions! The marine life around the plant have flourished, from shellfish to otters to eagles. Pure oxygen is our
What about pollution in the ocean?
Not a problem! The small batch we obtain
from the sea is first tested, approved, grown, harvested and then tested again to provide assurance that there are no molds,
yeast, toxins, heavey metals or contaminants and that it is approved for human consumption. Each batch comes with a Certificate
Why is the suggested serving so low?
The suggested 75 mg serving is equivalent
to 1/2 teaspoon of phytoplankton paste which is 85% seawater. When it is dried, it becomes a highly potent, incredibly concentrated
What is the difference between wild and laboratory grown phytoplankton?
is delivered to you in the exact same species composition as is found in nature, the way your body is intended to receive
them. We do not manipulate the species. Most other phytoplankton products are manipulated and grown in laboratories attempting
to re-create the oceans conditions. Most other phytoplankton are commonly used in commercial grade fish feed.
to use UMAC-Core Phytoplankton
Phytoplankton can be found as a supplement in liquid
form, but you can also get it in veggie caps.
Phytoplankton can be taken with or without food. If you are
used to concentrated green supplements, then you may not mind taking it directly under the tonge. However, if this is too
intense for you, it can easily be added to water, coconut water, smoothies or juice of your choice.
should always be stored in a room temperature in a dry dark place.
Phytoplankton is impressively loaded with many life promoting nutirients, including:
essential fatty acids (both EPA and DHA)
- Amino acids
Phytoplankton also has an alkaline pH. All living prganisms and
life forms on earth depend on maintaining appropriate pH levels, it has often been said that disease can't take root in the
human body that has a balanced pH. American diets high in soada pop, refined sugars, processed foods, frequent fast food and
poor quality protein all lead to acidity in the body. If you are looking to follow a more alkaline diet, phytoplankton can
be a good daily addition.
this time in history when pollution, over-processed foods, chemical onslot, and disease has reached epidemic proportions,
many people are istinctively turning to these tinny life forms for essential micro-nutrients and nutritional healing. Umac-Core's
technology allows us to tap into a viable and sustainable source of marine phytoplankton which has been the cornerstone life!
UMAC is comprised of multiple species of marine phytoplankton, wild-crafted by the pristine coastal waters of the Northwest
Pacific ocean. Among the nutriants found in this incredible blend are amino acids, vitamins, sea minerals, enzymes and proteins.
This remarkable blend is unrivaled by any other single form of food, plant, algae, grain or herb. The elements and electrolytes
in plankton are almost tailor-made for the human body. It‘s no coincidence that the composition of human plasma is similar
to that of seawater. Over reliance on land-based food sources often leads to deficiencies in micronutrients and trace elements.
Our bodies need these elements to perform as the Creator intended. Left to its own devices, the human body has a marvelous
system called homeostasis which keeps all systems in balance. Take away some critical component and the body experiences malfunctions
that cause suboptimal performance. Too many malfunctions cause disease. Phytonutrients are exhibiting potentially promising effects in human physiology.
It is one of nature's most complete and nutrient dense foods, it restores, strengthens & balances your cellular system.
