Like other carotenoids, Astaxanthin is a fat-soluble and water-soluble pigment found in marine organisms such as shrimp, crab, squid, and scientists have found that the best source of Astaxanthin is the hygrophyte chlorella. Astaxanthin is derived from the fermentation of yeast or bacteria,or extracted in low temperature and high pressure from botanicals by advanced technology of supercritical fluid extraction to ensure its activity and stability. It is a carotenoid with extremely powerful free-radical-scavenging ability.
