Algatech"), announces the launch of its AstaPure 5% Natural Astaxanthin oleoresin, derived from Haematococcus pluvialis
Founded in 1998, Algatech is a world leader in the production and supply of AstaPure[R], a premium natural astaxanthin - one of the world's most powerful antioxidants sourced from the microalga Haematococcus pluvialis
ZanthinNEX is a form of the carotenoid astaxanthin produced via a proprietary process using natural enzymatic conversions that deliver a safe finished product that is "nature equivalent" to conventional astaxanthin produced via extraction from Haematococcus pluvialis
mixed with live microalgae (Isochrysis sp.
Growth-inhibitory effects of the astaxanthin-rich alga Haematococcus pluvialis
in human colon cancer cells.
Specific topics include maintaining microalgae in culture collections, biological principles of mass cultivation of photoautotrophic microalgae, the biology and commercial aspects of Haematococcus pluvialis
, high-value recombinant protein production in microalgae, and transgenic marine microalgae as a value-enhanced fishmeal and fish oil replacement.
Astaxanthin-rich extract from the green alga Haematococcus pluvialis
lowers plasma lipid concentrations and enhances antioxidant defense in apolipoprotein E knockout mice.
In Lithuania, wood sandpiper Tringa glareola and Eurasian golden plover Pluvialis
apricaria--wet open habitat species, whose possible extinction is predicted by our model--are known to breed only in raised bogs.
Results were positive and, interestingly, those mice that were fed the middle dosage range of astaxanthin showed the best memory improvement; according to the researchers "these results illustrate that astaxanthin-enriched Haematococcus pluvialis
powder has the auxiliary property of memory improvement.
