Where does Astaxanthin come from?

Viridian Astaxanthin is sourced from fresh water microalgae, cultivated with pristine water from the Himalayas. It is grown in an ideal climate so the process has minimal environmental impact. There is no artificial heating or cooling just natural sunlight to allow the microalgae to flourish.




What is Astaxanthin?

ASTAXANTHIN astaxanthin is a potent antioxidant carotenoid derived from the Haematococcus pluvialis algae. Astaxanthin is closely related to other well-known carotenoids, such as b-carotene, zeaxanthin and lutein, thus they share many of the metabolic and physiological functions attributed to carotenoids.

Astaxanthin can be significantly more effective than beta-carotene and lutein at preventing UV-light photooxidation of lipids. Research to date reveals that naturally sourced algal astaxanthin helps protect against UVA-induced DNA alterations – effectively working as an ‘internal sunscreen’.

This carotenoid is a lipid soluble pigment and red in colour. The vivid red of Astaxanthin is produced by the microalgae as a protective reaction to UV light.
