ULTANA Phytoplankton is a multi-strain phytoplankton powder product. Following a decade of research Phytality Nutrition has developed a unique formulation that offers a diverse and complex nutritional profile. ULTANA Phytoplankton combines phytoplankton strains that are high in Omega-3 EPA, anti-oxidants, zeaxanthin & other nutritional carotenoids, vitamins, proteins, minerals and essential nutrients.
In particular ULTANA Phytoplankton offers a premium quality vegan source of Omega-3 EPA. In most other Phytoplankton products sold, Omega-3 EPA is available in only very low amounts (30-40mg per gram). ULTANA offers over 60mg of Omega EPA per gram, with the additional benefit that the majority of our EPA is in the more bio-available “Polar Lipid” form.
Omega-3 long-chain fatty acids (EPA & DHA) in a vegan (plant-based) form are naturally only available from micro-algae. Whilst cold pressed oils from flaxseed, hemp seed, or chia seed offer an impressive nutritional profile, their short chain fatty acids which are of the ALA form. These seed based oils do not have the same bio-availability and nutritional properties as the longer chain EPA and DHA oils.
This makes ULTANA Phytoplankton one of the only genuine wholefood, natural, sustainable, vegetarian alternatives to fish and krill oil.
This synergistic phytoplankton powder formulation is possibly the most potent natural wholefood on the planet, in terms of nutritional profile and diversity.
Their strains are produced to strict food grade standards in controlled production facilities. They also adhere to strict GMP quality standards such as ISO.22000 certification and IFS International Food Standard certification.
Phytoplankton are known to be the first living single-celled organisms on the planet, so it’s understandable why they are so nutritionally diverse.
ULTANA Phytoplankton provides a natural wholefood alternative to today’s synthetic multi-vitamin offerings. With over 75 essential nutrients it’s hard to find any other natural wholefood that offers gram-for-gram the broad spectrum nutritional profile of ULTANA Phytoplankton.
With the additional benefit of every gram offering over 120mg of Omegas, ULTANA Phytoplankton contributes to your daily Omega intake from a sustainable, ethical and safe source. More importantly, it contains a high concentration of these lipids in the more bio-available ‘polar lipid’ form. Research has shown that Omegas bound to polar lipids are more easily absorbed and digested than other Omega-3 lipid forms. Krill oil is high in polar lipid content, while ULTANA Phytoplankton offers vegetarians and vegans this optimal polar lipid form of Omega without the environmental footprint.
ULTANA Phytoplankton is also unique due to its high content of the Omega-3 EPA long-chain fatty acid. With over 60mg EPA per 1 gram serve, ULTANA Phytoplankton is recognised as a ‘Good Source of Omega-3’ under the Food Standards Australia and New Zealand guidelines.
