Astaxanthin is the strongest known antioxidant, ie. it helps eliminate free radicals. It has significant anti-inflammatory effects (even on the silent inflammation). Most problems in the body are caused by oxidative stress (free radicals) or chronic inflammation. Astaxanthin belongs to the carotenoid group.

Why is Astaxanthin working so well?

Astaxanthin in nature

The highest concentration in nature is found in Haematococcus pluvialis alga, then in a significantly lower concentration for example in krill (plankton). In the animal kingdom is Astaxanthin  accumulated the most in salmons’ muscles. Scientists claim that Astaxanthin gives salmon the strength and stamina to undertake their long journeys upstream for several days with no rest. Their performance could be described as the greatest athletic feat in the animal kingdom.

Beware, farmed salmon have little to do with those in the wild. At least in terms of natural Astaxanthin content. To achieve the typical red colour, they are fed with synthetic Astaxanthin, which is not allowed for direct human consumption.

Astaxanthin is currently produced from seven different sources. As evident from the table (see below), the Haematococcus pluvialis alga contains the highest concentration of Astaxanthin. Haematococcus pluvialis is currently the only type of alga cultivated by Algamo s.r.o.

Astaxanthin content in individual natural sources:

SourceAstaxanthin content (mg per kg)
Haematococcus pluvialis10,000 – 50,000
Krill46 – 130
Krill oil727
Phaffia rhodozyma yeast30 – 800
Rainbow trout1 – 13
Bream2 – 14
Sockeye salmon26 – 37
Atlantic salmon3 – 11
  • Natural Astaxanthin is extracted from living microalga as compared to synthetic Astaxanthin which is manufactured from petrochemicals or petrochemical derivatives.
  • Natural Astaxanthin has higher biological activity than synthetic Astaxanthin.
  • Natural Astaxanthin is 20 to 50 times stronger than synthetic Astaxanthin.
  • Natural Astaxanthin is safe for human and animal use.
  • Synthetic Astaxanthin has never been tested for safety in human use.
  • Synthetic Astaxanthin is not allowed for human use.

Hundreds of peer-reviewed articles, published in reputable medical research journals, together with more than forty clinical trials and studies have confirmed the safety and efficacy of Astaxanthin.

At extreme doses (50mg/day) skin pigmentation may increase.

Pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult the use of Astaxanthin with their doctor.

Our production and technology

Here at Algamo s.r.o. we produce natural Astaxanthin extracted from Haematococcus Pluvialis alga. Cultivation starts in laboratory conditions, continues through laboratory photo-bioreactors and micro-modules from where it is sent to production photo-bioreactors (production phase). The whole process is completely system-controlled from the beginning to the end. Besides, by using green energy and heat from a neighbouring biomass power plant it is also Eco-friendly. We have our own source of quality groundwater. Regular monitoring of cultivation conditions during all phases of the production cycle by professional employees at our state-of-the-art laboratory is standard practice.

Therefore, Algamo s.r.o. offers a stable supply and optimal price/quality ratio.

Quality

  • Regular inspection
  • Final inspection by an accredited laboratory
  • Consistent product
  • Non-GMO

Safety

  • Regular process control
  • Allergen-free
  • Controlled, closed cultivation system
  • Supercritical CO2 extraction

Sustainability

  • All electricity is supplied by a power plant using renewable energy sources.
  • Water used for cultivation is recycled and reused in the production process.
  • Oleoresin is obtained using super-critical CO2 extraction.
  • Water leaving the plant passes through a wastewater treatment plant.
