This pigment is originally synthesized by unicellular red algae such as Haematococcus pluvialis. Astaxanthin can represent up to 6% of the total weight of these micro-algae and serves as a protective shield against sunlight and UV rays responsible for DNA damage.
In the human body, this antioxidant is able to cross the blood-brain barrier and thus act at the level of the brain, which it helps to protect against neuronal inflammation. Astaxanthin also has a protective action on the eyes and against skin aging. Its properties allow to improve physical performances, in particular strength, endurance and recovery after the effort.
Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant capable of acting at the level of the brain and the cells of the body in order to avoid oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
The particularities of THERASCIENCE Laboratory
The astaxanthin used by THERASCIENCE Laboratory is derived from Algalif™ biotechnology, which ensures optimal effectiveness and bioavailability. THERASCIENCE Laboratory's astaxanthin comes from the micro-algae Haematococcus pluvialis grown in ultra-pure Icelandic water. As part of our quality approach, astaxanthin is guaranteed GMO-free and free of heavy metals. The culture parameters are rigorously controlled to ensure optimal stability and concentration.
THERASCIENCE Laboratory has chosen to adopt an eco-responsible approach and is committed to ensuring that the cultivation of Haematococcus pluvialis covers astaxanthin needs without exploiting natural resources.
