Marine phytoplankton scam
Alive Marine Phytoplankton Scam
Marine phytoplankton scam is possibly one of the newest scams in the era of the food supplements. Phytoplankton refers to the lower group of the plant species available and grown in the sea water. It is a common idea even suggested by some of the medical professionals that taking alive marine phytoplankton turns good for health. Even they suggest that it can be used as supplements. Actually, marine phytoplankton can be a good food supplement as they are rich in proteins and some chemicals essential for the normal growth of the body. Now-a-days, it is also suggested as a food supplement for the protein calorie malnutrition patients.
Marine phytoplankton scam refers commonly to the claims by some companies of selling these phytoplankton “alive”. Even, it is being advertised nakedly by these companies. It is now the time to expose the truth that no such things like an “alive” marine phytoplankton exists.
Firstly, the primary aspect of the marine phytoplankton scam is that it can not be alive after getting bottled. It is actually a dead ocean phytoplankton which gets bottled in the can. Thus the claim of more activity of living phytoplankton is not absolutely false, but also making holes in the pockets. No living organism can exist in a sealed bottle after long time.
Secondly, it is preserved in high concentration salt solutions. The marine phytoplankton may not be injurious for the health, but the salt concentration they use is extremely detrimental for our nervous systems and cardiac systems. The high concentration of salt actually produces free radicals which even trigger carcinogenesis (cancer progression) in the human system. Not only this, this bottles also contain even earth (dirt) and other materials or shells or some rubbish. Why will you pay for these? They are actually sucking your earnings out of your pocket. Also the sea water they claim to have inside the bottle may be injurious for the health. Sea water is not of the drinking quality; otherwise, there should have been no drinking water crisis throughout the world. This claim is absolutely false.
The third aspect of the marine phytoplankton scam is absolutely an economical aspect. It can be shown experimentally that the 1 unit amount of the freeze dried marine phytoplankton=3unit amount of the “live” marine phytoplankton. That is, if you buy two bottles (one is of live and one is of dead marine phytoplankton) of same amount, you will probably be cheated. Because, the company will provide 1/3 rd of the actual amount of the marine phytoplankton you’d have in a dead marine phytoplankton bottle. But, the “live” companies will not give any rebate or discount on their products, thus your pocket will be sucked away.
Fourthly, a major aspect of the marine phytoplankton scam is that they actually provide old and deteriorating materials in their bottles. If you do a simple job by making solutions of an alive marine phytoplankton material and a dead phytoplankton material, you’ll probably be amazed to see that the alive phytoplankton solution contains some clots and the colour of the solution will probably be pale yellow, depicting that it is not pure.
Thus, we may conclude that the claims of several companies of selling “alive” marine phytoplankton is absolutely a scam. The companies associated with marine phytoplankton scam should immediately be eliminated from the market.
