An antioxidant from the carotenoid family, astaxanthin is found in a range of organisms, though it’s most abundant in microalgae. In fact, in the microalgae we harvest astaxanthin production allows it to live for over 20 years under conditions that would otherwise be intolerable.
Science has shown that human consumption of astaxanthin can have a profound impact on health and well-being.
We've invested millions of dollars in a cutting-edge facility where we bring astaxanthin to life for human consumption.
Naturally derived astaxanthin is:
- 6000 times stronger than Vitamin C
- 55 times stronger than synthetic astaxanthin
- 5 times stronger than beta-carotene
- 800 times stronger than CoQ10 (ubiquinone)
- 550 times stronger than green tea catechins (phenolic compounds abundant in tea, cocoa and berries)
- 100 times stronger than Vitamin E

Astaxanthin, three ways
Whilst we bottle our own astaxanthin, it’s also available for supply to supplement manufacturers in a range of forms.
Standardised, high-quality oleoresin produced using efficient extraction technology at our manufacturing plant in Queensland. Oil extract is available for purchase by nutraceutical brands and is ideal for blending and capsule production.
Directly compressible, free-flowing and water dispersible powder extract is a botanical formula and free from major allergens. It’s ideal for vegetarians and consumers prone to allergic reactions and can be applied to a range of product formulas.
For production of hard capsules and tablets, including our own brand of consumer-directed astaxanthin supplements.
