Where does Astaxanthin come from?
  • Astaxanthin is a member of the carotenoid family, in close relation to beta-carotene, lycopene, and lutein. This red antioxidant is obtained from the cultivation of an ancient form of microalgae, Haematococcus Pluvialias, and can be used as a supplementary ingredient in various food products. Astaxanthin is also found in high concentrations in wild Pacific sockeye salmon, krill, algae, red trout, shrimp, crab, and lobster. Astaxanthin’s red pigmentation is what helps give these marine animals and plants their unique and vibrant coloring.
