Astaxanthin from the alga Haematococcus pluvialis is a natural red colorant that is sold under the name “AstaHealth” and is known by its anti-aging, resistance promoting and UV-protecting properties.
AstaHealth is produced by a natural isolate from the alga Haematococcus pluvialis. They are cultivated in glass sterilisable photobioreactors to guarantee the purity of the culture. There exist three 3-dimensional structures of astaxanthine. This is similar to hands: all the parts of the molecule are present, but the 3-dimensional structures are different, compared to left and right hands. Only one of these 3 structures can be taken up by the body, namely AstaHealth.
This product is consumed as a healthy nutraceutical (capsules, pills), but is also used as an anti-aging agent and UV-protector for the skin and for pigmentation of food and drinks.
The health promoting effects of Haematococcus pluvialis astaxanthin are confirmed in various scientific publications.
Since Biotech Microbials B.V. has access to a broad range of unique analytical technologies to guarantee the correct form of astaxanthin, functionality and microbial safety of our products.
