Where does Natural Astaxanthin come from?

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Natural astaxanthin from Haematococcus Pluvialis algae is a far superior form of Astaxanthin compared to the synthetic versions derived from petrochemicals. Up to 20 times stronger as an antioxidant, the natural astaxanthin can provide a much greater health benefit than the synthetic versions. Synthetic astaxanthin has not had the extensive safety and health testing as natural astaxanthin. It’s made in the laboratory in a very elaborate process that turns it from oil into astaxanthin. When you eat farm raised salmon, this synthetic astaxanthin is what you’re getting.
