Astaxanthin has been deemed the strongest antioxidant. It is supported by compelling scientific research, which includes the ability to fight free radicals and improve the immune system. It is sometimes called’super vitamin E’. This antioxidant promotes hair health and beauty, as well as eye health.
It has also been found to:
- Increase energy
- Boost physical performance
- Reduce inflammation
- Aid in eye health and reduce strain
- Improve blood pressure
- Help with diabetes
Furthermore, in combination with exercise, it is even more effective in reducing weight.
Astaxanthin is part of the carotenoid group called xanthophylls. It’s a red pigment that can be found in yeasts, algaes, and bacteria. Although astaxanthin is naturally found in food such as salmon and other vegetables, the recommended doses for experiencing the health benefits are much lower than the ones that have been prescribed. This is why food fortification and supplementation are so important.
To answer this demand, Algalif has devised a state-of-the-art tech to develop a highly concentrated astaxanthin oleoresin (natural flavouring ingredient) from microalgae. Divi’s, a specialist in the formulation of fat-soluble ingredients, has transformed the oleoresin to beadlets containing 5% astaxanthin. The antioxidant pearls are known as AstaBeads and can be handled in one of two ways: as tablets for energy bars or as fast-dispersing ingredients for powdered beverages.
AstaBeads also have great performance in tablet, gummy and twizzler applications.
Divi’s Nutraceuticals, which was established in 2006 by Divi’s Laboratories as a subsidiary. This $950m international supplier of active pharmaceuticals is (APIs), Divi’s Nutraceuticals produces more 65 vitamin and product forms of astaxanthin, vitamins, and other nutrients, for use in the global food, drink, and nutraceutical industry.
Algalif supplies pure astaxanthin products, including ingredients and final formulations. This is to meet the future’s nutritional and sustainable needs. The indoor production system is optimized to produce high-quality astaxanthin using only Icelandic water and renewable energie.
