Astaxanthin as a
Astaxanthin has many virtues that affect human health. It is used as a natural substance for a wide variety of applications, the most known is as a dietary supplement.
The term “dietary supplement” describes a broad and diverse category of products that we eat or drink to support good health and supplement the nutrition. This includes vitamins, minerals, and herbs. The most common form is a pill or capsule.
There are many sources and different types of nutritional supplements, which provide us reinforcement to the various systems in our body.
Astaxanthin, by being the strongest antioxidant in nature, its significant strength and effect on the body are the ability to prevent free radicals by protecting the cell membranes and maintaining their health, thus strengthening the functioning of the various organs in the body.
Free radicals are produced when oxygen combines with complex metabolic molecules. Free radicals are highly unstable molecules ready to react with anything they can. When they react, the result is called “oxidation.” Once the oxidation process begins, it can produce a chain reaction that generates more free radicals. Oxidation in the human body is the same thing that happens to metal when it rusts. The rusting or oxidation can destroy a strong piece of metal in just a few years. By painting the metal or putting on a rust-inhibiting product you can prevent rusting - This is the same thing that antioxidants are doing to the “rusting” in our bodies—preventing oxidation and prevent our body’s cells from oxidizing and degrading them strong.
Astaxanthin consumption, on a daily basis, can help maintain body function, improve the activity of vital organs, and give the body a dose of natural health.
Researches show that its efficacy as a dietary supplement has a significantly greater effect than vitamin C and vitamin E. It is an anti-inflammatory, maintains and improves eye function, and help for cholesterol and diabetes. In addition, it contributes to the protection of brain activity (Alzheimer’s, Stroke and Parkinson).
Astaxanthin recommended dose is 5mg per day - preferably a close proximity with a meal because the material is better absorbed in the body in a lipid environment.
Astaxanthin Growth Process
Growing the alga under sterile condition
Growing under optimal conditions to obtain maximum algal biomass
Exposing to natural environment and stress conditions to induce Astaxanthin production
Downstream processing for production as
powder or oil
Development of formulas for Astaxanthin-based products in many fields
