Product Introduction

What is astaxanthin powder?

Astaxanthin, also known as astaxanthin powder bulk, is a non-vitamin A near-keto carotenoid. Astaxanthin is a fat- and water-soluble pigment found in marine organisms such as shrimp, crabs, salmon, and algae. In addition to being obtained through biological extraction methods, astaxanthin powder can also be produced from algae, bacteria, yeast, etc. 

Astaxanthin in nature comes from algae, bacteria and phytoplankton. Among them, the accumulation rate of astaxanthin in red algae is significantly higher than that of other green algae. Under certain conditions such as high salinity, nitrogen deficiency, high temperature and light, the accumulation of astaxanthin in red algae can increase significantly. Currently, it is being researching. It is recognized as the best biological source for producing natural astaxanthin.

The natural astaxanthin powder provided by YTBIO has a content of up to 5%, which is much higher than the industry average standard. It has good stability, high antioxidant activity, excellent coloring properties and good bioabsorption. In addition, from raw materials to products, Green Spring's production is fully controllable and traceable, and the detection of various pollutants complies with global standards.

Molecular Structure

Molecular Structure

What are the effects of astaxanthin powder?


Astaxanthin can effectively scavenge free radicals caused by ultraviolet rays, play an antioxidant role in reducing wrinkles and resisting skin photoaging. The antioxidant properties of astaxanthin are mainly due to the long conjugated double bond chain in the molecule. At the same time, there are unsaturated ketone groups and hydroxyl groups at the end of the conjugated double bond chain to form α-hydroxyketone. These structures have electronic effects. It is relatively active and can provide electrons to free radicals or attract unpaired electrons of free radicals, thereby achieving the purpose of scavenging free radicals and achieving antioxidant effects.

Enhance immunity

Astaxanthin can significantly affect the immune function of animals. In the presence of antigens, it can significantly promote the production of spleen cell antibodies, enhance the function of T cells, and stimulate the production of immunoglobulins in the body. Animal experiments show that astaxanthin powder bulk has strong activity in inducing cell division and has important immunomodulatory effects.

Relieve exercise fatigue

Research shows that astaxanthin can act as an antioxidant, inhibiting oxidative damage caused by free radicals. It can enhance aerobic metabolism, increase muscle strength and muscle tolerance, quickly relieve exercise fatigue, and reduce delayed muscle pain after strenuous exercise.

Protect nerve cells

Research shows that astaxanthin can exert extensive antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-apoptotic effects in vivo and in vitro, protecting nerve cells. Astaxanthin can restore anti-peroxidase activity, inhibit the production of reactive oxygen species and the release of inflammatory factors, inhibit MPP+-induced oxidative stress and the inflammatory response of PC12 cell damage; Astaxanthin can also regulate Bcl-2/Bax ratio, down-regulates the expression of α-synuclein, and inhibits MPP+-induced SH-SY5Y cell damage; Astaxanthin can protect neural cells by inhibiting the reduction of mitochondria by inhibiting the reduction of mitochondrial membrane potential and p38MAPK and caspase-3/caspase -9 activation, astaxanthin can inhibit the damage of 6-OH-DA to mitochondrial function in SH-SY5Y cells and protect neurons through the mitochondrial anti-apoptotic mechanism.

UV protection

Ultraviolet radiation is an important cause of epidermal photoaging and skin cancer. Research shows that astaxanthin has a specific effect on transglutaminase, which depletes putrescine when the skin is exposed to light. The strong antioxidant properties of astaxanthin make it a potential photoprotectant, effectively scavenging free radicals that cause skin aging, protecting cell membranes and mitochondrial membranes from oxidative damage, and preventing skin photoaging.

What are the market applications of astaxanthin?

In the field of feed

Astaxanthin powder can be used as a feed additive for fish, crustaceans such as shrimps and crabs, and poultry. As a colorant for aquaculture animals, astaxanthin can give aquatic animals bright colors and make them more ornamental. Adding astaxanthin to poultry feed can increase the content of egg yolk pigment; it can also increase the egg production rate of hens and promote the health of laying hens. Astaxanthin has the same function as humans in preventing and treating fish, shrimp, crab, and poultry diseases. It can improve immunity, survival rate, normal growth, healthy reproduction, and play an important role in improving survival rate and reproduction rate.

In the food field:

Pure astaxanthin powder can be used as a food additive for food coloring, preservation and nutrition. Astaxanthin is fat-soluble, has a bright red color and has strong antioxidant properties. For food, especially food containing more lipids, it has a coloring effect and can play a role in preservation. In Japan, astaxanthin-containing red oil has been patented for use in marinades for vegetables, seaweed and fruits, and has also been patented for use in beverages, noodles, seasonings and colorants.

In the field of health products: Astaxanthin, as a powerful antioxidant, has many health functions such as anti-aging, anti-cancer, and prevention of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, astaxanthin is widely used in the field of health care products, such as astaxanthin soft capsules, astaxanthin oral liquid and other products.

In cosmetics:

As a new cosmetic raw material, astaxanthin is widely used in various cosmetics such as creams, lotions, lip balms, and skin care products due to its excellent properties. Especially in the field of high-end cosmetics, natural astaxanthin, with its unique molecular structure and its antioxidant effect, can effectively explode free radicals caused by ultraviolet rays, prevent skin photoaging, reduce UVA and UVB damage to the skin, and prevent skin cancer. production, slow down cell aging, reduce skin wrinkles, reduce melanin deposition, reduce freckles, and maintain moisture, making the skin more elastic, tensile, and moisturized. In Japan, there is a patent for using the anti-photosensitivity effect of astaxanthin to produce cosmetics. Astaxanthin mainly plays an antioxidant role in cosmetics. It can remove free radicals in cells, enhance cell regeneration, maintain the balance of the body, and reduce the accumulation of aging cells. Therefore, using skin care products containing astaxanthin can alleviate skin aging problems, reduce wrinkles, and improve dark yellow conditions. In addition, astaxanthin also has strong antioxidant properties and can help solve any skin oxidation problems. Because our skin is faced with various types of radiation and oxidation every day, if we do not take good protective measures, it can easily lead to skin aging. At this time, you can use astaxanthin to help delay aging and keep your skin in a vibrant state for a long time.


Application of astaxanthin in pharmaceutical industry

Our human retina is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, and the central nervous system is also rich in unsaturated fatty acids. The free radicals generated by oxidation can easily cause peroxidation of retinal cells and the central nervous system, causing damage to the body. Studies have shown that astaxanthin can easily pass through the cell membrane and blood-brain barrier due to its special non-water-soluble molecular structure, protect the central nervous system by powerfully scavenging oxidative free radicals, and ultimately protect the brain, effectively treating Damage to the central nervous system caused by oxidative free radicals, such as ischemia-reperfusion injury, spinal cord injury, Parkinson's syndrome, etc.; by directly removing oxidative free radicals in cells, the regeneration capacity of cells can be effectively enhanced and the balance of human body functions can be maintained. It also reduces the accumulation of aging cells in the body and protects the health of cells and DNA from the inside out; it removes oxidative free radicals in cells in the body and prevents damage to rods and cones in the retina. It has a therapeutic effect on macular degeneration. Cyanins are more effective in treating macular degeneration than lutein.
