What makes Karen® better than other phytoplankton products?

Karen® Phytoplankton products are produced using the highest level of quality standards. Our phytoplankton is not taken from the ocean but is sustainably grown on land from heirloom seed, using filtered Atlantic Ocean water. The water is filtered to remove any heavy metals that might be present.

What can I expect after taking Karen® for 30 days?

Karen® Phytoplankton provides vital nutrients that most people are lacking. When taking a daily serving of phytoplankton (250 mg per day) some people see results instantly while most take 30 – 60 days to see results. Remember the improvements continue the longer you take Karen® Phytoplankton.

What is the best time to take Karen® Phytoplankton?

Most of our customers have reported that taking their daily serving of Karen® Phytoplankton first thing in the morning provides them with increased energy throughout the day. This may not work for everyone. The most important thing is to take it every day to experience the full health benefits it has to offer.

Are there any side effects from taking Karen®?

There have not been any adverse side effects or reactions reported from consuming Karen® Phytoplankton. In very rare occurrences customers have reported detox-like symptoms. This is normal when introducing healthy foods into your diet when your body is not used to it. The people who experience these symptoms find that detox reactions are mild and temporary (four to ten days).

Is Karen® Phytoplankton safe to take if I have a seafood or fish allergy?

Yes, Karen® Phytoplankton is 100% VEGAN AND PLANT BASED, a type of algae to be more specific, and is safe for anyone with these types of serious allergies.

Will Karen® Phytoplankton interact with my medication?

It is always a good idea to check with your doctor or pharmacist before introducing any type of natural health product while taking medication. Although, Karen® Phytoplankton is safe to take with most medications, it does contain trace amounts of Vitamin K which can react with certain blood thinners.

Is Karen® safe for me to take with my health condition?

Karen® Phytoplankton offers many health benefits but is different for each person. If you have a specific health concern or condition, it is always a good idea to consult a physician or a qualified healthcare professional before modifying your diet, using any new product, drug, supplement, or doing any new exercises.

Is Karen® safe for pets to consume?

Is Karen® Phytoplankton safe to take during pregnancy?

I have been recently diagnosed with a disease. What do you recommend for me?

When you make healthy nutrition choices it helps to ward off many leading chronic illnesses and diseases. Karen® Phytoplankton is a nutrient-dense product which can help in the maintenance of good health when taken daily. If you have a specific health concern or condition, consult a physician or a qualified healthcare professional. Always consult a medical professional before modifying your diet, using any new product, drug, supplement, or doing any new exercises.

What is the difference between the powder and the tablets?

In each Karen® Phytoplankton tablet there is 1 – 250 mg serving of phytoplankton.
In each ½ scoop of our powder there is 1 – 250 mg serving of phytoplankton.
The recommended daily dose is 1 – 4 servings per day. (30pk Tablet = 30 servings / 15g Powder = 60 servings).

The tablet box says to “take up to 4 times daily” – do I need to take this much?

The recommended daily dosage is 1 – 4 tablets per day. Everyone’s body reacts differently; some people experience better health when taking one per day and others prefer more. We recommend starting with one per day, and if you do not experience the results you were hoping for, take two per day and increase up to four until you achieve your desired health benefits. It may take anywhere from 30 to 90 days to experience the full benefits of phytoplankton.

How do I use the Karen® Dermo Cosmetic Lotion?

Is it okay to use the Karen® Dermo Cosmetic lotion on my face?

Whenever introducing any new skincare product into your daily routine, we recommend performing a small patch test first. Especially if you have extremely sensitive skin or allergic skin, or when applying to a sensitive area such as the face. To do this: Apply lotion to a small area of skin. If rash or irritation occurs discontinue use. Always avoid contact with the eyes.
