What is Astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin is a Karotinoid.

The Karotinoide show one of the biggest groups of the secondary plant materials.

Karotinoide surround us everywhere and cause the colour variety in the nature. The best known Karotinoid is probably the beta carotene which received his name of the carrot in which it was proved for the first time. However, a row of rose Karotinoiden which provides for the striking colour of some birds, crustaceans and fish has by far stronger antioxidative abilities (radical catcher) than beta carotene. Thus, e.g., flamingo red Karotinoide store in her feathers, but also salmons, shrimps and lobsters owe her colouring to these Karotinoiden

What acts Astaxanthin from experiences?

  • It can protect against light, not treatment destitute sunburn and the skin irritations originating from it.
  • It is an Antioxidans, a radical catcher, with a 550-fold higher effect than vitamin E and also excels Betacarotin around the 10-fold.
  • It is able to do apparently the deposition of the injurious LDL-Cholesterols in the arteries prevents and affects at the same time positively the production of the healthy HDL-Cholesterols.


Different study results have shown that Astaxanthin has a very positive influence on the skin. Small folds are decreased by the improvement of the humidity household.
The skin gets more Elastzität and a healthier appearance.

Sport and achievement

Natural Astaxanthin is the secret weapon for athletes. In double blind studies increases in output were achieved up to 62%. Astaxanthin increases as can be proved the blood circulation of the musculature and raises therefore strength and perseverance.

Really Antioxidans

Investigations have proved that natural Astaxanthin owns the ability to diminish the damaging effect from aggressive oxygen atoms (free radicals).

It is an Antioxidans with a 550-fold higher effect than vitamin E and also excels Betacarotin around the 10-fold.

Solar protection

The oxidative stress generated by ultraviolet rays can damage the cells of skin and eyes.

The taking of Astaxanthin prevents this oxidativen cell stress and thereby the negative results of ultraviolet rays for our skin.

Which springs are there for Astaxanthin?

The richest natural spring for Astaxanthin is the microscopic-small alga Haematococcus pluvialis. The original surroundings on Hawaii offer optimum conditions for the growth of this micro-alga. She gets sunlight and fresh water what promotes natural high concentrations of Astaxanthin.
Right after the harvest the alga is dried and to fine powder vermahlen to guarantee a maximum in bioavailability.
