Nannochloropsis Powder—an Excellent Source of Energy


Product information “Nannochloropsis Powder”

Nannochloropsis Oceanica is a kind of unicellular marine microalgae, belonging to Chlorophyta, Chlorophyceae, Tetrasporales, Coccomgxaceae. With thin cell wall, its cell is round or ovoid, and the diameter is 2-4 um. Nannochloropsis multiply fast and is rich in nutrition; therefore it is widely used in aquaculture, and is an ideal bait for breeding arcidae, shrimp, crab and rotifer. 

This fine-quality Nannochloropsis powder with the most advanced production process imported from Europe by fine selecting of algae strains, centrifuging and drying. Comparing with other algae, besides its content of proteins and minerals are much higher, its lipid is also more than 30%, most of which are unsaturated fatty acids, especially the content of EPA taking 30% of the fatty acids and 5% of the dry weight. Its content of EPA is the highest among the known algae, and can be widely used for breeding rotifer, sea cucumber, fish, shrimp, crab and shellfish, and make obvious effects for raising survival rate and growth speed.

Feeding Recommendation

First, shake the powder with water in a sealable container, then add as a concentrated solution. For green water culture of shrimp and fish larvae a dosage of 1 g per 100 l is ideal. For feeding corals in saltwater aquariums, we recommend a dosage of 0.5 – 1 g per 100 l daily. For feeding plankton (e.g. Artemia, rotifers…) 0.5 – 1 g per liter should be dosed. More should be added when the culture has notably lost green color.

The Food and Medicine of the Future:

“Marine phytoplankton makes up one quarter of all vegetation (land and sea) and according to NASA provides up to 90% of the oxygen in the air we breathe. In essence, marine phytoplankton produce more oxygen than all the Earth’s forests combined. All the scientific research indicates that marine phytoplankton may be the most important food on planet Earth not only because of the nutritional content of the phytoplankton, but also due to the fact that marine phytoplankton is food for everything on Earth — it is the very meaning of food.”

Marine phytoplankton is an excellent source of energy:

“Normally, our bodies have to break down everything we eat into little packets of protein, sugar, fats and oils, which are then put into one end of the mitochondria factory, and which then come out the other side as tiny energy units called nucleotides. These are ATP, ADP, AGP, etc. These nucleotides are the currency of the cell — these are the biological battery packets that are used to produce cellular energy. The nucleotides in phytoplankton actually bypass the mitochondria production factory altogether because phytoplankton nucleotides directly feed the cell with the energy. This means that the cell can produce energy quickly and effectively without having to go through all the energy of digestion.

The effect of taking low, medium to high dosages of marine phytoplankton will be energy with no stimulation. The ATP and other nucleotides found in the plankton turn directly into energyonce in the human body. This makes marine phytoplankton the leading superfood product in the world for those needing to work extra hard in high-stress environments without sleep and who require long-term energy and focus, without stimulants. In this department, marine phytoplankton is unsurpassed.”
