Astaxanthin beadlets microencapsulated – 120 capsules

AstaPure® beadlets: natural microencapsulated astaxanthin complex

The AstaPure® astaxanthin in this product is cultivated in a hermetically sealed system. The used technology guarantees particularly high control standards with which microbiological contamination, agricultural residues and environmental influences can be excluded.
Astaxanthin in its free form is prone to oxidation, therefore the astaxanthin in this product is microencapsulated and especially stable.

Strong antioxidant

Because its antioxidant properties are 6000 times stronger that vitamin C and 550 times stronger than vitamin E, astaxanthin is considered as the strongest known carotenoid of the entire plant world. It is able to protect the skin effectively against UV radiation and protects the nervous system against oxidative stress, by crossing the blood-brain-barrier. Astaxanthin also protects the eyes against free radicals, because of its ability to cross the blood-retina-barrier.

  • especially stable due to microencapsulation
  • strongest carotenoid of the entire plant world
  • can protect the skin from damages of UV radiation
  • protects the nervous system against oxidative stress
  • pure substance

How does astaxanthin work?

Early on, the fresh water alga Haematococcus pluvalis has aroused the researchers´ interest. In 1797 the French scientist Girod-Chantrans investigated the approx. 0.1mm small green alga. In case of an exposure to strong sunlight or a state of nutrient deficiency, it forms a blood-red pigmentation, for which the astaxanthin is responsible. This protective function makes it possible for the alga to survive without food or water for more than 40 years. As soon as there is enough food and the weather conditions improve, the alga wakes up from its deep sleep and returns to its green active state.
In biotopes such as ponds, small waterholes and even stoups, which are inhabited by the micro alga, a spectacular blood-red colour can occasionally be admired due to the alga´s protective properties.

Two studies about astaxanthin

The effect of astaxanthin on the skin appearance has been investigated in a study during which the test persons consumed 2 milligrams of astaxanthin daily. The skin was tested at three points in time to determine possible changes: at the beginning of the study, after two weeks and after four weeks. After only two weeks results could be documented. Improvements of the skin´s appearance could be observed in seven areas and after two more weeks dry skin showed a higher moisture content, less small lines, less pimples and a more regular fat content. Additionally, the test persons reported less swellings under the eyes and a higher elasticity of the skin. In the control group, which didn´t consume astaxanthin, no effects could be documented.
(Yamashita, E. 2002; Tominaga, K. 2012)

The aim of another placebo-controlled study with 20 couples, who had difficulties to receive a child, was to find out if astaxanthin was able to reduce the effects of oxidative stress on male sperm cells. The couples had tried to become pregnant for at least 12 months and suffered from the bad sperm count of the respective man. After a daily intake of 16 milligrams over a period of only three months, half of the couples became pregnant. The sperm motility and morphology of the men, who received astaxanthin, had improved too. (Comhaire, F. und Mahmoud, A. 2003; Comhaire et al., 2005)
