You might be surprised by where astaxanthin is found. This carotenoid is found, for example, in salmon, shrimp or lobster meat, but also in flamingo feathers. That is why, depending on the level of astaxanthin content, these animals are colored pink to orange. However, the most astaxanthin can be found in the single-celled freshwater alga Haematococcus pluvialis, which protects itself from UV rays with the help of the substance. Today, the substance found in the algae is extracted in large quantities.
And what are carotenoids? These are lipophilic organic substances from the group of tetraterpenoids. They have notable antioxidant properties. This means that they protect cells from damage by unstable oxygen molecules, also called free radicals. In plants, the photosynthetic apparatus protects against damage.
