Our Astaxanthin comes from the microalgae named Haematococcus Pluvialis and is grown in a unique way in the pristine glaciers of Iceland, away from the risk of contamination.
We put great value on sustainability, hence why we only work with manufacturers that share the same ideals on that. Iceland is regarded as one of the most sustainable countries in the world. Icelandic water is extremely pure, low in minerals and unchlorinated. The country generates 100% of its electricity from clean energy. Iceland has better air quality than nearly all OECD-countries. These optimum conditions create pure, clean, top-quality Astaxanthin to promote your health.
Microalgae are single celled plants that flourish in both salt- and freshwater sources. Most microalgae grow through photosynthesis – by converting sunlight, CO2 and a few nutrients into material known as biomass, this ensures the development of the most nutrient-dense microalgae.
Algae are very diverse and found almost everywhere on the planet. They play a key role in many ecosystems, including its contribution to the foundation for the aquatic food chains supporting all fisheries in the oceans and inland, as well as generating about 70 percent of all the air we breathe.
Microalgae are presented for a wide range of biotechnological applications, including dietary supplements for human nutrition. Microalgae and microalgae-derived compounds have great potential as supplements in the human diet for the prevention, management, and treatment of physiological problems. Therefore, the use of microalgae for the development of products with health benefits, such as nutraceuticals and functional foods, is a rapidly growing market.
Among the commercially important microalgae, Haematococcus pluvialis is the richest source of natural astaxanthin. Natural astaxanthin produced by this microalgae has important applications in the nutraceuticals, cosmetics, food, and aquaculture industries. It is now evident that astaxanthin can significantly reduce free radicals and oxidative stress and help the human body maintain a healthy state of being. With extraordinary potency and increase in demand, astaxanthin is one of the high-value microalgal products of the future.
Our manufacturer's unique, enclosed photobioreactor cultivation system and its proprietary three-phase cultivation process, help ensure optimal growth of the microalgae and high yield of pure astaxanthin from Haematococcus pluvialis.
