What Is NutraPlus ?
NutraPlus range of products are based on new micro-feed paste from the microalgae Dunaliella salina. It contains pure Dunaliella salina algae with no artificial additives additives. In normal seawater salinity, D. salina is green, however, at highly saline conditions and high light intensity, the algae turn red due to the high content of mixed carotenoid in the cells.

Dunaliella salina is also food source for many filter feeders such as corals, sponges and others.
