Umac Core Marine Phytoplankton 57 ml (2oz)

UMAC-CORE – Marine microalgae, also known as phyto-plankton, comprise over 200 species of photosynthetic, unicellular organisms belonging to the Kingdom Protista. Temperate coastal waters, such as those along British Columbia (BC), are highly productive and support a diverse array of microalgal species from numerous Classes, including the primary producers called diatoms (Class Bacillariophyceae). Phytoplankton are microscopic plants that live in the ocean. There are many species of phytoplankton, each of which has a characteristicshape.

Collectively, phytoplankton grow abundantly in oceans around the world and are the foundation of the marine food chain. Small fish, and some species of whales, eat them as food. 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, diatoms 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 – Skeletonema, Thalassiosira, 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.


UMAC-CORE is powerful because the extraction process combines the benefits of phytonutrients with a natural and balanced composition of sea minerals. Phytonutrients are natural plant-based chemicals that promote proper metabolic functions. Many of them exhibit potentially promising effects in human physiology:

* immune system enhancement
* antioxidant protection from cancers and degenerative diseases
* cholesterol modulation
* anti-inflammatory effects on membranes
* blood pressure control
* cell wall improvement through increased permeability and flexibility
* detoxification through metal chelation.
