  • What is astaxanthin?
    Astaxanthin is a carotenoid produced in microalgae, yeast, bacteria and fungi; in the aquatic environment microalgae are consumed by zooplankton, insects or crustaceans (e.g. krill, shrimp, lobster and crayfish) which accumulate astaxanthin and in turn are ingested by fish (e.g. salmon and trout). Astaxanthin cannot be produced by humans; it has to be taken up – like the other carotenoids – via the diet or supplements. Astaxanthin is a very strong antioxidant; potential applications in humans build on the antioxidant function. Astaxanthin can be produced via fermentation or by synthesis. Products produced with one or the other technology are available on the market. Read more here.
