SolarStrips ™ with Alpha 3 CMP Marine Phytoplankton is one of the World’s newest and most exciting whole food supplements available to mankind. Alpha meaning “first” or “beginning” 3 – The balance of Mind, Body, Spirit
CMP – Concentrated Marine Phytoplankton
What is Marine Phytoplankton?
“Phyto” meaning Plant or Light
“Plankton” meaning floating or suspended
The appearance of tiny single cell microscopic organisms with the ability to convert water, sunlight and nutrients into protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and amino acids began to grow. In turn, Marine Phytoplankton became the first buoyant food source on planet Earth.
Life based nutrition
• Marine Phytoplankton are the foundation of the Oceans Food chain. Without the existence of phytoplankton, the majority of marine life within the oceans would not survive.
• Scientists at NASA also theorize that phytoplankton are responsible for up to 90% of the oxygen in the Earths’ atmosphere.
• Phytoplankton are also responsible for the first soil that appeared on the Earths’ surface; after the oceans flooded the rocky core, deposits of plankton composted forming the first soil, which in turn shaped the terrestrial foundation for all other plant life to flourish.
• Phytoplankton have, and always will play a key roll in our survival, although many people have never known of their vital importance. How could we, as human beings access these potent, life enhancing microscopic plants?
Unique Sea Farms
Until recent discoveries in the marine aquaculture industry, specific nutrient rich blends of WILD Marine Phytoplankton were unattainable within the marketplace in large sustainable quantities. Tom Harper, an Aquaculture Engineer Specialist and owner operator of Unique Sea Farms research facility on Vancouver Island BC spent 8 painstaking years developing the Patent Pending technology in recreating the “Spring Bloom” at the Sea farm (all the conditions that exist in nature for the Phytoplankton to multiply in massive quantities).
Mr. Harpers’ goal was to grow vast amounts of wild Marine Phytoplankton in a controlled environment in land based tanks to feed the seedlings in his shellfish hatchery. The Sea farm sits on 8 acres along side the Eastern Coast of pristine Vancouver Island BC. It holds eight 1 million litre tanks which are filled with sea water from a massive pipeline that extends out 1 kilometer and at a depth of eighty feet below the surface of the ocean.
He believed that the 200+ species of WILD Phytoplankton that grows in the ocean – literally on the
doorstep of the Sea farm – would certainly hold more nutritive value than the 7 to 9 industry standard species of Marine Phytoplankton used worldwide in hatcheries, due to the higher concentration of diverse species and wild natural nutrient content. To this point, the only Phytoplankton options had been those grown in a denatured laboratory environment using Bio-reactors and synthetic sea water.
Mr. Harper’s intuition was right. When he was finally able to provide the WILD blends of Phytoplankton to his seedling stock and Industry standard Phytoplankton to the other., the seedlings consuming his WILD blends were growing TEN TIMES larger with almost a 0% mortality rate than those being fed the common Plankton used throughout the Aquaculture industry.
Mr. Harper’s reputation and Patent Pending technology gained worldwide attention within the Aquaculture industry. Not only was he growing healthier and larger shellfish, the Sea Farm can produce enormous sustainable quantities of Phytoplankton twelve months of the year.
Unfortunately, within weeks of this remarkable discovery, Mr. Harper was diagnosed with a life threatening illness. He was given only weeks to months to live, and was advised by his accountant to sell the Sea Farm. One day, while preparing for the sale and tending to the Phytoplankton, Mr. Harper intuitively felt he should start consuming his Plankton, as he saw such huge results in the health of his shellfish being fed these wild aquatic plants.
He began eating his Phytoplankton every day. Within weeks, he shared with a few close friends and family members that he was feeling more energy and less pain in his chest and back. During a scheduled surgery for a medical grade “talcum” injection into the plural lining of his lungs (a common procedure with mesothelioma), the surgeons were puzzled to discovered a foreign white substance covering his tumors.
Upon an 11 site biopsy, the medical staff was baffled to find that all 11 sites came back benign. The surgeons could not explain it, and could not provide Mr. Harper an explanation as they had never seen this before. News of his shift in health and consumption of the Phytoplankton he was growing at his Sea Farm spread quickly. His Doctors would not comment on whether or not this had anything to do with the changes in his state of health. Friends and neighbors began requesting samples of this Phytoplankton and Mr. Harper gladly shared it, offering no guarantee they would personally experience any changes.
Never the less, even without “proof” people still wanted to try it, and it soon became evident due to
the continuous testimonials and overwhelming public demand, this was a product worth sharing on a much larger scale. He made the decision to close down all aspects of the shellfish hatchery to focus 100% of his efforts on the Phytoplankton, as that is where his heart was leading him.
What we eat today…
News of this incredible story reached the ears Marilyn Stewart; of one of ForeverGreen’s leaders in Canada and ForeverGreen’s first Rain Maker! She brought the information to President Ron Williams, and a meeting was set at the Sea Farm shortly thereafter.
Our Unique Opportunity
Here are pictures of a few of the 200+ species that make up this extraordinary unique blend of wild microscopic Marine Phytoplankton in SolarStrips™. Aren’t they beautiful? Mr. Harper’s technology is the only one of its kind WORLDWIDE. He is the first and only person in history to duplicate the “Spring bloom” in a controlled safe environment on land which can produce these volumes of Plankton twelve months out of the year. The “Spring bloom” embraces all of the conditions that allow for Wild Marine Phytoplankton to multiply in massive quantities in the ocean, however, he creates these conditions at the Sea farm. These conditions are a perfect balance of:
• Small amounts of existing wild Phytoplankton in 100% NATURAL sea water
• 100% NATURAL Sunlight
• Water temperature
• Oxygen levels
These “conditions” are adjusted daily in the tanks to reflect the changes occurring in nature. Twenty-four hour surveillance of the tanks ensures Mr. Harper’s Phytoplankton are thriving at all times. If conditions aren’t perfect as they are in Nature, the entire tank of Plankton can “crash” or stop growing.
The WILD Phytoplankton grown and harvested at the Sea Farm are unlike any other natural composition in the world, as these particular blends of species only grow in one very unique area world-wide.
Although National Geographic is unaware of Tom Harper’s technology and the Sea Farm, we were delighted to see an article in the August 2006 issue celebrating the rich and diverse sea life that owes its abundance and diversity to the extraordinary and nutrient rich Marine Phytoplankton which ONLY grows along the Eastern coast of Vancouver Island. Not surprisingly, that is the same Wild Phytoplankton being grown and harvested for SolarStrips™! These particular species of Phytoplankton depend on very specific conditions to flourish and sustain life. This particular region of the world is abundant with Rain Forests, Rivers flowing from the Coastal and Rocky Mountain ranges, extreme currents, and varied levels of sunlight. These nutrients are making their way into the Straight of Georgia from the excess rain run-off of Rainforest floors and Rivers, providing the perfect balance of minerals to feed the Phytoplankton. Should many of these species float to other regions without these nutrients and aquatic environment, they will eventually die. There is only ONE other area in the world where these blends of Phytoplankton flourish other than in nature; Tom Harper’s Sea Farm!
You can feel confident and proud representing and consuming SolarStrips™! Not only is this an incredible product, but it is grown in a facility that actually works in-sync with Mother Nature. As mentioned earlier, Phytoplankton contributes oxygen into the atmosphere after consuming C02, as do the large tanks of Phytoplankton at the Sea Farm. In fact, when all eight tanks of Phytoplankton are in full bloom, these tanks consume up to 1 tonne (CND) of C02 from the atmosphere every day! The Sea Farm is cleaning up Carbon emissions from the atmosphere and emitting PURE OXYGEN as a by-product! Also, once the Plankton is harvested from the huge 1 million litre tanks, the tanks still contain Phytoplankton nutrients that were not harvested due to their microscopic size. Upon draining the tanks after harvest, these remaining nutrients are returned directly back to the ocean – 3 to 5 times more Plankton nutrients than what was originally brought in within a 4 to 9 day period! Not many large industrial facilities such as this can actually declare a positive impact on the environment!
Not all Phytoplankton…
SolarStrips™ with Marine Phytoplankton gaining momentum and admiration very quickly in North America, and is now distributed in several countries worldwide. Personal testimonials of increased physical vitality, emotional well being, and positive shifts in certain individuals faced with health challenges caught the attention of many Nutriceutical companies, and as a result, more new “Phytoplankton” products have been introduced to consumers. As many of you know, Phytoplankton are a very new source of WHOLE FOOD nutrients and until very recently, many people had never conceived of hytoplankton as a source of nutrients in our diets!
Imitation is always the best form of flattery, and there are now several imitations appearing within the market. Mr. Harper’s Phytoplankton cannot be duplicated other than through Mother Nature and his technology. It is important to know that NOT ALL PHYTOPLANKTON ARE CREATED EQUALLY OR NATURALLY!
Here are the differences:
Open cell vs closed cell: Phytoplankton have a silica shell. Unlike sheep, cows, horses, and marine life, human beings do not have the digestive enzymes which allow us to break down silica to access the nutrients inside. Unless the cell wall of the Phytoplankton is ruptured, we cannot benefit fully from the nutrients locked inside of these microscopic plants. Mr. Harper’s technology involves gently rupturing the cell walls of each species of Phytoplankton without the use of HEAT,FREEZING or CHEMICALS, while keeping the nutrient levels in tact. His technology allows for 100% bio-availability for our human cells. Upon contacting other companies promoting their blends of Plankton, we have yet to find one that offers OPEN CELL options. The general public does not
understand the differences of Open and Closed cell Phytoplankton, and many companies depend on this lack of knowledge to maintain sales. Even though many companies boast that they offer more per serving…is More really “More” if we can’t absorb it in the closed cell form?
WILD Phytoplankton vs Laboratory grown Phytoplankton: Mr. Harper’s technology offers the ONLY source of these WILD blends of Marine Phytoplankton grown outdoors from NATURAL sea water (free of contaminants) and utilizing ONLY NATURAL SUNLIGHT as Mother Nature always has.
Other products offer single species of closed cell plankton, grown using a de-natured laboratory environment employing Bio-reactors, artificial sea water and artificial sunlight. These particular laboratory grown single species have been traditionally used to feed small fin fish, and upon questioning other companies, they could not offer ANY human clinical trials pertaining to their SPECIFIC Plankton species before or after their launch into the human markets.
Full disclosure of Geographical location and use in the industry: The Sea Farm not only provides full disclosure of our unique location for species identification, but offers guided tours to the public. Upon questioning other companies about their particular “Phytoplankton” products, or origin of species, they claim is safe and efficacious for human consumption, many were unwilling or unable to properly or scientifically identify species, name origins, or identify direct human benefit based on THEIR “proprietary blend” species. Instead, inquiries were met with diversions such as being told they are “Proprietary blends”, “secret sources” etc. Why is that? Perhaps there is a reason they wish to keep the species, growing methods and LACK of human clinical trials a secret?
ECO FRIENDLY…”Zero Carbon Footprint”: The Sea farm GIVES BACK to Mother Nature. We provide huge amounts of Natural Carbon offsets and gives 3 to 5 times more of the Phytoplankton nutrients back out to the ocean.
Full double blind HUMAN clinical trials: Alpha 3 CMP Phytoplankton is presently the subject of on-going clinical studies at the University of Utah and other accredited facilities. To date, our first Human study shows the increase of the CD3 complex This study indicates that in fact, the Wild blends of Marine Phytoplankton found in SolarStrips™ actually help to increase the Human immune system! Not only that, there are also indicators that
there are psychological benefits as well!
Significant increase in the CD3 measures (presence of T- Lymphocytes) primarily responsible for the elimination of internally manufactured antigens (viruses, bacteria, etc.) in organs and tissues.
Significant responses to:

The Sea farms ensures that all of the species are tested before the” Spring bloom” process takes place in the outdoor tanks, determining that all of the species of Phytoplankton are in fact benign, free of contaminants, and safe for human consumption.
Once the Marine Phytoplankton is harvested and their cell walls ruptured, it is shipped directly by BC Ferry to a third party laboratory called Canadian Phytopharmaceuticals on the mainland in Richmond BC. Canadian Phytopharmaceuticals is a GMP certified facility, and has also acquired their Site License Number issued under the strict guidelines of Health Canada.
Each batch of Marine Phytoplankton is tested upon completion of processing for Yeast, Mould, Bacteria, E-coli, Heavy metals, Arsenic, and Staphylococcus. To date, every batch of Marine Phytoplankton we have ever grown and processed has conformed to the strict guidelines set forth by Government health regulations. ForeverGreen receives a copy of the C of A with each batch of Phytoplankton from the Sea Farm ensuring ABSOLUTE safety for human consumption.
By combining the most potent Land and Sea Based vegetation into one dynamic product, we now have access to the highest quality WHOLE FOODS Mother Nature has to offer.
We can all agree that our bodies are designed to recognize and assimilate nutrients from whole food sources to promote proper metabolic function. Due to our over reliance on man-made synthetic food sources which make up most of our daily diets, we are seeing more and more cellular breakdown and health concerns within our society due to this lack of whole food Phytonutrients (plant based chemicals).
For many of us however, the time it often takes to ensure this daily balance can be somewhat challenging. By CONSISTENTLY introducing SolarStrips™ with Marine Phytoplankton into your daily regime, you can begin to build and nurture your body at the deepest cellular level with these recognizable bio-available whole food nutrients!
Note: SolarStrips™ is not intended to target one specific area of the body or to “Cure” any specific diseases.
When our bodies are showing signs of disease in particular areas, it is usually caused by cellular degeneration due to lack of supportive whole food nutrients. SolarStrips™ can help to feed these cells simultaneously throughout the entire body, thus helping to improve OVERALL health. Our cells make up our organs which in turn creates the “systems” which must work together for optimum health. By feeding the cells, we are building the foundation which supports our immune system, respiratory system, circulatory system, nervous system, and lymphatic system.
