(NaturalNews) In previous articles and product reviews here on NaturalNews, we've covered some astonishing superfoods. The most impressive of those have been derived from microalgae: Astaxanthin, Chlorella, Spirulina and Blue-Green Algae.

Now, a new microalgae product has emerged in the natural products market that joins the ranks of these high-potency superfoods: Marine Phytoplankton.

Read this product review if you're interested in learning about the latest, most nutritionally-potent superfood that can provide you with astonishing health benefits. This is a superfood that contains potent anti-cancer nutrients, elements that help reverse heart disease, nutrients for protecting brain function and even specific minerals and phytochemicals that can help normalize body weight.

Legal note: All benefit statements in this article are my own opinion and do not necessarily represent the "official" position of the manufacturers or resellers of this product, all of which have been heavily censored by the FDA from telling you the truth about what superfoods or nutritional supplements can really do for your health. Nothing in this article is FDA approved. (And that's why it actually tells you the truth!) In my view, the FDA is run by white-collar criminals who hope to prevent you from learning the kind of information presented in this non-commercial, independent product review.

What is marine phytoplankton

Much like chlorella and spirulina, marine phytoplankton is a single-celled organism that's been on planet Earth for literally billions of years. It is the life form responsible for creating an oxygen-rich environment on our planet. Without it, the atmosphere would have remains inhospitable to humans and other mammals that depend on oxygen, so it is no exaggeration to say that marine phytoplankton created the opportunity for human life on Earth. (That's worth noting because it turns out that marine phytoplankton can also protect human life on Earth right now!)

Like all microalgae that grow in the ocean, this particular strain of marine phytoplankton (there are more than 40,000 strains of microalgae, but this one was chosen for its potent health benefits) is rich in chlorophyll, trace minerals (from the ocean water) and carotenoids. It is the carotenoids that give it color, and as anyone who has been paying attention to nutrition already knows, the pigmentation nutrients are the medicines!

Just like with fresh vegetables, it is the color itself that provides the most potent medicine. The purple anthocyanins in purple cabbage, for example, are anti-cancer nutrients. The phycocyanin in spirulina is also a super potent anti-cancer nutrient. The carotenoids in carrots protect the nervous system, and the red pigments in astaxanthin are miraculous fat-soluble antioxidants that give your muscles and tissues superhuman-like protection against aging and oxidation. (See my detailed article on astaxanthin here: )

Marine Phytoplankton contains hundreds of different carotenoids, minerals, amino acids and nutrients. And compared to land-based plants (which are usually mineral deficient), ocean-based plants are naturally rich in ocean water minerals, including all the trace minerals that can prevent and reverse serious disease.

For example, selenium halts cancer tumors. Zinc accelerates tissue repair in the body. Magnesium helps reverse heart disease and neurological disorders. Strontium is the "secret" mineral for building strong bones. Chromium helps boost insulin sensitivity which helps regulate blood sugar. Iodine prevents breast cancer and regulates thyroid function, which ends out-of-control appetite cravings... And the list goes on! These minerals are the foundational secrets to lasting health, and they're all found in ocean-based marine phytoplankton.

They're also found in seaweed, of course, which is why eating lots of seaweed, dulse, kelp, nori and other sea vegetables is such a smart health strategy. Unfortunately, the American palette doesn't include seaweed, and virtually all Americans (and Canadians, Brits, and Aussies) remain dangerously deficient in key trace minerals. This is especially true in the Midwest or regions where people are mostly living on beef, potatoes, junk food and soda pop... (I know, 'cuz I grew up there...)

Marine phytoplankton is a medicinal powerhouse created by Mother Nature

Beyond the trace minerals, marine phytoplankton contains literally hundreds of potent phytochemicals that work in synergy to protect your body's tissues, detoxify your blood and remove toxins, enhance oxygenation and circulation and reverse abnormal cell division that can lead to cancer.

Ocean-based plants are the future of nutritional medicine. And if society ever gets rid of the quackery of Big Pharma and the criminal actions of the FDA, it will inevitably turn to medicines from the ocean to treat (and cure!) numerous health conditions.

I have no doubt that if every American were given just 10 drops of Ocean's Alive Marine Phytoplankton each day, we'd see a huge drop in degenerative disease. I think we'd see cancer rates plummet by up to 90 percent; diabetes would be drastically reduced, heart disease numbers would drop sharply. Alzheimer's cases would be way down and behavioral disorders in children would virtually disappear. That's from just 10 drops a day of just one microalgae product.

Imagine if we added astaxanthin, chlorella, goji berries and other superfoods to the diets of everyone! We'd see cancer virtually disappear. (Which is exactly why the cancer industry doesn't want you to know about these solutions... they would all be put out of business!)

What health conditions can marine phytoplankton help treat or cure?

Based on my considerable nutritional research, I believe marine phytoplankton provides nutritional elements and phytochemicals that can help prevent, treat and cure all of the following health conditions*:

• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Type-2 diabetes
• Autoimmune disorders such as lupus
• Eczema and skin disorders
• Breast cancer, prostate cancer and other cancers
• Heart disease and atherosclerosis
• Dementia and Alzheimer's disease
• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
• Parkinson's disease and other neuromuscular disorders
• Liver disease and hepatitis
• Depression, mood swings and behavioral disorders
• Eye disease
• Infertility and reproductive system disorders
• Infections and common colds
• Asthma and respiratory disorders
• Kidney and bladder disorders
• Osteoporosis and skeletal disorders
• Chronic pain and joint pain

* Please do not self-treat or self-diagnose. Always work with a qualified naturopathic physician to treat or cure a disease or health condition. Please also note that curing most degenerative diseases requires that you stop poisoning yourself with processed foods, pharmaceuticals, toxic personal care products and other chemicals. No superfood will save you from a highly-toxic lifestyle, or smoking cigarettes, or taking poisonous pharmaceuticals. Do not use marine phytoplankton allopathically, as a way to mask your symptoms. Use it as part of a lifestyle transformation program that gets you OFF the dangerous chemicals and ON to natural medicine and fresh, living foods.

Safety note: Since marine phytoplankton contains vitamin K, it can theoretically interfere with blood thinning medications. So check with your naturopath about the safest way to get off your meds and get onto nutrition so that you no longer need blood thinning meds! (Which are based on rat poison, by the way... no kidding!)

Why nutrient-rich microalgae is advanced medicine

Why do I believe marine phytoplankton can help prevent, treat or cure all of these diseases? Because I recognize that marine phytoplankton is a whole food medicine containing hundreds of different nutritional elements that work synergistically throughout the body. Modern medicine doesn't recognize that. Conventional physicians and medical authorities are stuck in the "one drug, one symptom" mode of thinking, which is very limited. It's hopelessly outdated, in fact, as it's based on the discovery of penicillin and the idea that every disease has a single countering chemical that can kill it.

But modern diseases aren't infections! You can't "kill" cancer (they try, of course, with surgery and chemotherapy, and usually they just end up killing the patient rather than the cancer). You can't "wipe out" diabetes with a chemical. You can't "eradicate" heart disease with vaccines or antibiotics. The body is not a war zone to be carpet-bombed with expensive pharmaceutical chemicals. Modern degenerative diseases cannot be treated with isolated, synthetic chemicals.

That's why modern health care is a miserable failure. It's why cancer rates, heart disease rates, diabetes rates and Alzheimer's rates have skyrocketed over the last several generations, even as modern medicine has poured billions of dollars into researching and marketing new monopoly-priced drugs.

The bottom line is that modern medicine doesn't work. And the reason it doesn't work is because it fails to recognize the nutritional causes behind most modern diseases and disorders. Virtually all modern-day consumers, it turns out, are dangerously deficient in sunlight, Vitamin D, macro minerals, trace minerals and plant-based nutrients (phytonutrients). Once you introduce those into the body -- and eliminate exposure to toxic chemicals -- healing takes place automatically, and serious diseases simply vanish in a matter of days, weeks or months, much to the astonishment of conventional doctors who continue to ridiculously insist there's no such thing as an herb, vitamin or superfood that has any positive effect whatsoever on the human body.
