Turns out not all plankton are evil like that little guy from Spongebob. In fact, phytoplankton are benevolent single-celled microscopic aquatic organisms that are packed with tons of healthy nutrients. They also hold the honor of being one of the oldest supplements you can add to your health regiment, having been around for some 3 billion years. Let’s dive into what these tiny guys contain and their crazy health benefits.

Phytoplankton comes in powdered, capsule and liquid form. The most versatile of these three is the liquid form. Look for non-GMO, raw, unprocessed liquid phytoplankton with no fillers. You can mix this liquid in with all sorts of things. Some ideas include coconut water, juice, smoothies, salad dressing, and stocks or broths. The liquid can be taken plain as well if you don’t mind the taste. We recommend giving this one a go.
