Astaxanthin

ABOUT ASTAXANTHIN

Astaxanthin is a natural red pigment and antioxidant belonging to the carotenoid family, often derived from microalgae and krill. It is known for its vibrant red color and is a powerful antioxidant.

WHY WE INCORPORATE IT

Astaxanthin is used in pet products due to its potent antioxidant properties, which can help improve pet health and overall well-being. As a super-antioxidant, it fights oxidative stress, supports the immune system, and enhances skin and coat health in dogs, cats, and horses.

NATURAL ORIGINS

Astaxanthin can be found in nature in microalgae, where it is synthesized to protect cells from environmental stressors and ultraviolet (UV) radiation. This natural compound is the reason behind the vibrant red or pink color of flamingos, salmon, and other marine creatures.

Did You Know?

Astaxanthin is what gives flamingos and some shellfish their distinctive pink or reddish color. When these animals consume astaxanthin-rich foods, it accumulates in their tissues, affecting their pigmentation.
