• What is Astaxanthin?

    Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring dark red carotenoid pigment found in aquatic animals such as salmon, trout, krill, shrimp, crayfish and crustaceans.  It is a potent antioxidant and provides a broad range of health benefits.

    Animals, such as salmon, lobster, shrimp and trout, acquire astaxanthin by consuming mainly algae directly or via other marine creatures.1 Consumers can obtain this valuable nutrient from seafood or a dietary supplement. The ubiquitous fresh water microalga, Haematococcus pluvialis, is the richest natural source of astaxanthin and is used in the production of Solasta® Astaxanthin.
