Astaxanthin is one of the most powerful antioxidants discovered by humans so far, and it is also a good anti-inflammatory agent. Natural astaxanthin mainly comes from Haematococcus pluvialis. The content of astaxanthin in Haematococcus pluvialis is 1.5% to 3.0%, which is regarded as a "concentrate" of natural astaxanthin. Numerous studies have shown that Haematococcus pluvialis has a higher accumulation rate and total production of astaxanthin than other green algae.
