Nannochloropsis GaditanaNannochloropsis gaditana truly is the wonder of the world’s ecosystem, hands down. This incredible supernutrient is both the most fundamental and crucial strain of marine phytoplankton on the planet, and it stands tall as a giant even among giants within the superfood category. But when was this specimen discovered, and how did we get to where we are today?

I’m glad you asked.


It all began in the 1960s as natural scientists started to research the benefits of the marine phytoplankton within the world’s oceans. There were many, many different varieties to sort and sift through, so the search for “one strain to rule them all” was anything but forthcoming for quite a while.

The big breakthrough came in 1982 with the discovery of nannochloropsis gaditana, the very best variety of phytoplankton for human nutrition with the perfect amount of all the major amino acids, essential fatty acids pigments, and minerals your body needs at the DNA level.

It took another 20 years for microbiologists to figure out how to grow with the wonder food in an artificial environment. All of this study resulted in the photobioreactor – a simulated ocean made for inland facilities. The critical environmental variables had to be carefully calibrated to reach just the right combination in order to get it to work.


So what makes nannochloropsis gaditana so special in the first place? For one thing, it was part of the original nutrient strain on this planet! It feeds your brain, nervous system, and more and provides your body with many other benefits if consumed. You’ll feel the difference once you add this natural wonder to your diet – after all, it’s like charging your body’s battery!

You can find this supernutrient in every bottle of Activation Product’s Oceans Alive Marine Phytoplankton. Enjoy!
