1. Introduction of Astaxanthin:
Astaxanthin is a ketone carotenoid, which is called 3,3'-dihydroxy-β, β-carotene-4,4'-dione.
The end of the conjugated double bond chain has an unsaturated keto group and a hydroxyl structure, and is
highly reactive with free radicals and scavenges free radicals.
Glutathione, r-glutamyl cysteingl +glycine,GSH), Also known as γ-L-glutamyl-L-cysteine-glycine, a tripeptide
containing a γ-amide bond and a sulfhydryl group, which is composed of glutamic acid (Glu), cysteine (Cys)
and Glycine (Gly) is a non-protein thiol tripeptide compound that is condensed by peptide bonds. It is rich in
amino acids, peptides, vitamins, and trace elements. It is an extremely broadly-active short peptide. Extensive
in animals and plants, has an important role in the body.
2. Where does Astaxanthin come from?
Natural astaxanthin is contained in Haematococcus pluvialis, Euglena, and snow algae, and the accumulation
rate of astaxanthin in Haematococcus pluvialis is significantly higher than that of other green algae.
Synthetic astaxanthin is 3S, 3'S (left-handed, about 25%), 3R, 3'R (dextrorotatory, about 25%), and 3R, 3'S
(mesocyclod, about 50%) Mixtures, functions, applications and effects and safety are highly controversial.
Yeast - Phaffia rhodozyma:
Astaxanthin with a content of 0.15%-0.40% and a structure of 3R and 3'R (dextrorotatory) has partial oxidation
The squid, squid, krill, shrimp and crab shell, oyster marine organisms contain astaxanthin, mainly in 3S, 3'S
(left-handed) configuration, low content and high extraction cost.
3.Astaxanthin is the strongest antioxidant in the world:
Astaxanthin is 6000 times more effective than vitamin C; 1000 times more than vitamin E; 800 times that of
coenzyme Q10; 1800 times that of nitric oxide; 3100 times that of natto; 700 times that of anthocyanin; 100
times the efficacy of β-carotene; 10 times more potent than lycopene; 200 times more potent than carotol;
320 times more potent than polyphenols (tea polyphenols);
4. Characteristics of Astaxanthin:
Special position in the cell membrane: Astaxanthin is oleophilic and hydrophilic, spanning the cell membrane
and simultaneously removing free radicals from the cell membrane and cell fluid.
Astaxanthin can effectively remove free radicals generated by ultraviolet radiation in the body and reduce the
damage caused by chemicals. Therefore, it has a good preventive and therapeutic effect on skin cancer caused
by ultraviolet rays.
Fast absorption: the molecular weight is only 596.8, and the base at both ends is not more than 1000 Daltons.
It is easily absorbed by the human body and can quickly reach various organs of the human body.
5. Antioxidant experiment on Astaxanthin:
The Japanese research department has 49 healthy middle-aged women with an average age of 47 years and
supplemented astaxanthin 4 mg/day for 6 weeks. The results show that supplementation of astaxanthin can
effectively improve shallow wrinkles, skin elasticity and skin moisture content.
Natural 2%, 3%; fat-soluble powder
Microcapsule powder 2% water soluble powder
Used in skin care products:
The structural characteristics of astaxanthin make it easy to react with free radicals to scavenge free radicals
and play an antioxidant role. It is used in skin care products to prevent and delay skin aging and reduce wrinkles
Colorants for cosmetics:
Astaxanthin is a fat-soluble pigment with a bright red color and strong oxidation resistance. In the make-up, not
only can it effectively play the role of color retention, taste preservation, quality assurance, etc., but also can be
used as a coloring agent for a long time, such as lipstick, lipstick, and the like.
It has strong anti-oxidation ability, can effectively remove active oxygen in the body, has anti-oxidation, anti-inflammatory,
enhance immunity, relieve fatigue and protect eyes.
8. Storage conditions:
Astaxanthin is oxidized when it comes into contact with air and should be store away from light.
