Natural Astaxanthin


Astaxanthin (pronounced asta-ZAN-thin) is one of the world’s strongest naturally-occurring carotenoids. Numerous studies have found this antioxidant to be beneficial in helping to prevent or treat a variety of diseases, boost immune systems, increase sports recovery, and protect from harmful sun damage. Astaxanthin is most commonly found in microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis which is the primary diet of aquatic animals such as salmon, flamingos, shrimp, lobster, crab, etc. thus giving them their rich red/pink pigment. PIVEG extracts this natural pigment for application in the nutritional supplement, cosmetic, and pet health industries. With its countless health benefits, Astaxanthin is growing to become the most popular carotenoid on the market.
