What is astaxanthin?

It is a kind of carotenoid and a strong natural antioxidant. Like other carotenoids, astaxanthin is a fat soluble and water-soluble pigment found in marine organisms such as shrimp, crab, salmon, algae and so on. Astaxanthin has a strong antioxidant capacity, 550 times of vitamin E and 10 times of beta carotene.


1. Comminuted shrimp shell,

The content is too low 80-200ppm, adding too much ash.

2. Artificial synthesis,

It is a petrochemical product, used only in animal dyeing, and has been banned in the United States for use in the health care products market.

3. Fermentation of red yeast,

The high sugar content of products is potentially dangerous to animals and humans.

4. Culture of red ball algae,

The closest natural astaxanthin food chain. The bioavailability is the highest and the risk is the least.

5. Plant culture method

In 2012, the research group of the Kunming plant of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, in cooperation with Peking University and University of Hong Kong, developed the world's first new type of Engineering tomato with high astaxanthin, which could accumulate the same content and 1.6% astaxanthin as the rain raw red ball algae.

6 biological access,

It is the most effective way to extract Chlorella from rainwater by supercritical carbon dioxide.


Its antioxidant function is 500 times as high as vitamin E. Astaxanthin has protective effects on skin and eyes, resistance to radiation, cardiovascular aging, Alzheimer's disease and cancer.The aging of human body is mainly due to the oxidation caused by free radicals. The special molecular structure of the extract of red ball algae can pass through the outer wall of the human body, directly remove the oxygen free radicals in the cells, enhance the cell regeneration ability, maintain the balance of the human body and reduce the accumulation of senescent cells, and protect the cells and DNA from the inside to the outside.

For Health

 A, protecting the eyes and the central nervous system

It has been shown that astaxanthin can effectively prevent the oxidation of the retina and the damage of photoreceptor cells through the blood brain barrier and cell membrane, especially the effect of macular degeneration on the retina is more significant than lutein. The central nervous system, especially the brain, has a protective effect on the central nervous system injury such as ischemia-reperfusion injury, spinal cord injury, Parkinson syndrome and so on.

B, anti ultraviolet radiation

Ultraviolet radiation is an important cause of skin photoaging and skin cancer. The strong antioxidant activity of astaxanthin may make it a potential photoprotector, effectively scavenging free radicals causing skin aging, protecting cell membrane and mitochondrial membrane from oxidative damage, to prevent skin photoaging.

C and preventing cardiovascular disease

The study shows that astaxanthin can significantly increase HDL and decrease LDL in the body, in which HDL can increase from 49.7 + 3.6mg/dL to 66.5 + 5.1mg/dL. Therefore, astaxanthin can reduce the oxidation of apolipoprotein, and can be used to prevent arteriosclerosis, coronary heart disease and ischemic brain damage.

D and enhancing immunity

Astaxanthin can significantly affect the immune function of the animal. When the antigen exists, it can obviously promote the ability of the spleen cells to produce antibodies, enhance the role of T cells and stimulate the production of immunoglobulin in the body. Astaxanthin has strong activity in inducing cell division, and has important immunomodulatory effects.

E, alleviating fatigue and enhancing body metabolism

Astaxanthin can be used as an antioxidant to inhibit the oxidative damage of free radicals to the body. In addition, orally orally astaxanthin can strengthen aerobic metabolism, increase muscle strength and muscle tolerance, quickly relieve exercise fatigue, and reduce delayed muscle pain after intense exercise.
