Our Story

Blugenics Innovations Inc., the home of Karen for Good Health, was founded in 2015 by David Hunter after a decade of research, development, and regulatory processes to bring phytoplankton to people across North America.  

 The genesis of the phytoplankton as a health supplement began when David met Tom Harper, who had a shellfish farm and used phytoplankton to increase the size of his shellfish. David was hired to help with his business as Tom was dealing with a terminal disease. Tom began taking phytoplankton and eating it as a joke, and he miraculously recovered from his terminal illness, which made headlines in Nanaimo & Vancouver newspapers. This led to a huge demand for phytoplankton in the local area, and hundreds of people, including David, experienced life changing results. 

Tom’s Story in the Nanaimo Daily News

After Tom's retirement, David embarked on the phytoplankton revolution and formed Blugenics to provide people with access to safe & sustainable phytoplankton. David sourced a team of the world's leading algae scientists to scientifically prove the benefits of phytoplankton for humanity, which led to over 15,000 studies and clinical trials in progress. Through research, two unique strains of phytoplankton were discovered and formulated into human-grade ingredients.
