ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity)
Astaxanthin is created by microalgae called Haematococcus Pluvialis. When stressed, this algae goes into survival mode, excreting
astaxanthin to act as a ‘force field’ around it. The astaxanthin protects the algae from changes in its environment
such as ultra-violet light, a lack of nutrition or a change in temperature. Natural astaxanthin allows these algae to live
for over 40 years with no food or water in harsh environments.
