Natural Antioxidant Astaxanthin


Short Description:

Astaxanthin is a keto carotenoid extracted from Haematococcus Pluvialis and is fat-soluble. It exists widely in the biological world, especially in the feathers of aquatic animals such as shrimps, crabs, fish, and birds, and plays a role in color rendering.They play two roles in plants and algae, absorbing light energy for photosynthesis and protecting chlorophyll from light damage. We obtain carotenoids through food intake which are stored in the skin, protecting our skin from photodamage.

Studies have found that astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant that is 1,000 times more effective than vitamin E in purifying free radicals produced in the body. Free radicals are a type of unstable oxygen consisting of unpaired electrons that survive by ingesting electrons from other atoms. Once a free radical reacts with a stable molecule, it is converted into a stable free radical molecule, which initiates a chain reaction of free radical combinations.Many scientists believe that the root cause of human aging is cellular damage due to an uncontrolled chain reaction of free radicals. Astaxanthin has a unique molecular structure and excellent antioxidant capacity.

    Astaxanthin also known as lobster shell pigment,Astaxanthin Powder,Haematococcus Pluvialis powder, 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, squid, and scientists have found that the best source of Astaxanthin is the hygrophyte chlorella.

    Astaxanthin is derived from the fermentation of yeast or bacteria,or extracted in low temperature and high pressure from botanicals by advanced technology of supercritical fluid extraction to ensure its activity and stability. It is a carotenoid with extremely powerful free-radical-scavenging ability.

    Astaxanthin is the substance with the strongest antioxidant activity found so far, and its antioxidant capacity is much higher than vitamin E, grape seed, coenzyme Q10, and so on. There are sufficient studies showing that astaxanthin has good functions in anti-aging, improving skin texture, improving human immunity.

    Astaxanthin acts as a natural sun block agent and an antioxidant. It lightens the pigmentation & brightens the skin. It increases skin metabolism and retain moisture by 40%.
