Trends in astaxanthin application

19 Sep 2018 --- At Vitafoods Asia 2018, AstaReal highlighted several trends in astaxanthin application. “I see tremendous opportunities in Asia-Pacific. Innova Market Insights data has allowed us to great insight into APAC. The number of new astaxanthin launches in the region has been growing at a phenomenal rate with 19 percent CAGR between 2011 and 2016. By market share APAC represents 21 percent of this new product development. That tells us that it is a hotbed of activity and especially in the areas where people are interested in, we have discovered that skin health is number one, followed by general health & wellness, followed by eye health. That gives us a tremendous opportunity to leverage the portfolio that we have to create value added products,” says Vincent Woods.

Growing science behind antioxidants for longer healthspan

20 Jun 2018 --- There is growing support around the potential for astaxanthin and other antioxidants to aid a longer healthspan. “One of the aspects that we are trying to achieve within health & nutrition is to expand the healthspan segment of your life to make it as close as possible to your lifespan. Astaxanthin is a fantastic free radical scavenger, which is something that influences oxidative stress, which is a component of having a deficit of your life. It also interacts beautifully with mitochondria, which are the energy sources in the cell. As you get older these mitochondria become more dysfunctional but astaxanthin can help to protect them,” says Malk Miller, an ambassador for Astareal.
