Astaxanthin is derived from the micro-algae Haematococcus pluvialis

Astaxanthin has an antioxidant action up to 500 times that of vitamin E, which has led some experts to term it as “Super Vitamin E”. Astaxanthin is the most stable antioxidant. Typically, an antioxidant becomes unstable after quenching a free radical, and in the process becomes a free radical itself. However, astaxanthin due to its unique molecular structure that allows it to span the cell’s lipid bi-layer and also because of its long double-bonded chain, can stabilize free radicals by adding them to its structure, rather than sacrificing an atom or electron.

What’s in Your Tablets? Spirulina platensis and Chlorella pyrenoidosa

There are several different species of these two algae, however the ones that I speak of in this book are Spirulina Platensis and Chlorella Pyrenoidosa. Another Chlorella product found on the market is chlorella vulgaris, which is nutritionally inferior to its powerful cousin Pyrenoidosa. The kind of alga found in swimming pools closely resembles chlorella vulgaris, which does not have the broad array of nutrients that Pyrenoidosa has, nor its incredible dietary fiber. The Chlorella Growth Factor (CGF) in vulgaris is miniscule compared to Pyrenoidosa. Vulgaris is cultivated by fermentation instead of grown with sunlight. Its growing time is only three days whereas Pyrenoidosa takes seven days to mature because it is a far more complex whole food with a much greater array of nutrients than vulgaris. Cultivating a food with sunlight is a much more natural way to grow a food compared to simply fermenting it. For one thing, chlorophyll can not be created without sunlight, which is not used in the fermentation process. You will pay more, but Chlorella Pyrenoidosa is well worth the extra money.
