■What is Astaxanthin?


Astaxanthin is an important carotenoid and one of the strongest antioxidants found in nature. Its biological function is remarkable and has a wide range of application value. It can not only be used as a feed additive for aquaculture and human food additive, but also has great application potential in the fields of medicine, cosmetics and nutritional health care products. Studies have shown that astaxanthin is a carotenoid with antioxidant activity. Compared with beta-carotene and vitamin E, astaxanthin has stronger biological activity and is a safe substance for humans. The antioxidant activity of astaxanthin is about 100 times higher than that of beta-carotene and about 1000 times higher than that of vitamin E, and astaxanthin has been considered as a "super vitamin E".

Algae source (Haematococcus pluvialis)

3S, 3’S (100% levorotatory)

has the strongest antioxidant activity

Synthetic

3R,3'S                   (25% levorotatory, 50% meso, 25% dextrorotatory)

Low safety, poor antioxidant activity

Fungus (transgenic Phaffia rhodozyma))

3R, 3'R (100% dextrorotatory)

with partial antioxidant activity



■Why choose Haematococcus Pluvialis as the source of Astaxanthin?

Haematococcus Pluvialis is the organism with the highest natural astaxanthin content. Under certain conditions, Haematococcus pluvialis can accumulate astaxanthin content of 1% to 3% of the dry cell weight, and the astaxanthin contained in it has the highest content of astaxanthin. The levo-rotatory structure with the strongest antioxidant activity has the characteristics of high stability, high purity and high quality. It is regarded as the "concentrate" of natural astaxanthin and the best biological source of natural astaxanthin.
