  • What is Astaxanthin?
    Astaxanthin is a carotenoid that has been acknowledged by many different scientific researches to be the strongest natural antioxidant. It is a member of the xanthophyll family within the broader carotenoid classification. Like many carotenoids, astaxanthin is a colorful, lipid-soluble pigment. This color is due to the extended chain of conjugated double bonds at the center of the compound. This chain is also responsible for the antioxidant function of astaxanthin as it results in a region of decentralized electrons that can be donated to reduce a reactive oxidizing molecule.

    What is the Source of Our Astaxanthin?
    Natural sources of astaxanthin include salmon, lobster, arctic shrimp, crab, crawfish, red trout, algae, and krill. While synthetic astaxanthin can be found in the market, we only offer astaxanthin that derived from Haematococcus Pluvialis, the organism that produces the highest concentrations of astaxanthin in nature.

    Why Do We Only Provide 100% Natural Astaxanthin?
    •Synthetic Astaxanthin molecule is completely different from natural Astaxanthin molecule in shape.
    •Natural Astaxanthin is approximately 95% esterified, giving it a more stable form and providing it with greater shelf life. The esters may also help with the bioavailability of astaxanthin in your body.
    •Natural Astaxanthin is a "carotenoid cocktail" that mixed with other naturally occurring carotenoids in the algae.
    •Natural Astaxanthin is 20-50 times stronger than synthetic astaxanthin.

    What are the Advantages of Our PBR System?
    Our advanced Photobioreactor (PBR) System allows us to
    • Control the circumstances to optimize the productivity
    • Prevent outside contamination
    • Have a large surface-to-volume ratio to maximize the efficiency in using light
    • Reduce the evaporation of growth medium
    • Better control of gas transfer
    • Maintain stable temperature
    • Reduce fouling

    Why Do We Only Provide 100% Natural Astaxanthin?
    Two distinguishing properties of Astaxanthin:
    Astaxanthin is the strongest antioxidant in nature
    • 6000X stronger than Vitamin C
    • 600X stronger than CoQ10
    • 550X stronger than Green Tea Catechins
    • 75X stronger than Alpha Lipoic Acid
    Astaxanthin protects both the water soluble part and lipid soluble part of the cell since it can span the cell membrane. Plus, it can cross the blood-brain and blood-retinal barriers to protect the brain and eyes.

    Astaxanthin is a safe, natural anti-inflammatory that works through multiple pathways
    Unlike many anti-inflammatory drugs that you can find in pharmacy, astaxanthin's effect may takes 2 to 6 weeks to show. However, compared with those intense anti-inflammatory drugs that work on only one pathway, astaxanthin suppresses a variety of inflammatory mediators. More importantly, over a decade's consumer use and hundreds of studies, no side effect or contraindication has been observed.

    We Guarantee the Best Quality
    Farlong chooses Haematococcus Pluvialis that raised in 100% mountain spring water that originates from the Himalaya Mountains high in the Tibetan plateau. Our PBR closed culture system uses natural sunlight to yield the optimum condidtions, avoiding many contaminants that constantly show up in other growing systems.
    Meanwhile, the intense sunlight raises our Astaxanthin content to the very highest among all producer. And we have the highest ration of pure Astaxanthin to other carotenoids ever attained.
