AstaZine™, brand Astaxanthin, from global natural products pioneer BGG is the result of years, of dedicated research, to offer the Natural Ingredients Marketplace.

BGG’s AstaZine™, is produced through cultivation of micro-algae (Haematococcus pluvialisis). In 2013, BGG invested in the purchase of over 100,000 square meters of the most fertile and climatically suitable land in Southern China, and then invested in the very latest technology to farm the micro-algae to produce the purest and most consistently potent Astaxanthin, that BGG names as AstaZine™. Astaxanthin is in short supply around the world, and BGG is now the leader in the market.

What is Astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin is a unique fat-soluble carotenoid; of natural origin, it can be found in a variety of sources, such as micro-algae, or salmon, trout, cray and shellfish. Humans cannot synthesize in the same way. However, we can gain the benefits of Astaxanthin through eating sea foods, or alternatively or additionally, by taking an Astaxanthin supplement; and BGG’s AstaZine™ is the best of these, yielding the highest purity and potency of any Astaxanthin supplement on the market today.

The origin of BGG’s AstaZine™, the highest-quality form of Astaxanthin

BGG’s Astaxanthin (AstaZineTM ) is produced from micro-algae Haematococcus pluvialisis (HP). This micro-algae is the form known to produce the highest concentration of Astaxanthin found in nature; it typically contains about 1.5% – 3.0% dry biomass, and 3S, 3’S-AX is the main form found in HP; almost 88%. Existing studies prove that 3S, 3’S-AX has greater biological activity than trans-isomer (3R, 3’R-) and mesoform (3R, 3’S-AX) in microalgae.

Astaxanthin Research

Scientific research combined with excellent micro-algae cultivation technologies maximizes the efficient production of BGG’s AstaZine™; and quality is monitored at every step, and is assured.

3S, 3’S-AX structure is so perfect that it has the strongest anti-oxidant in nature. As with all of the carotenoids, it has an extended shape with a polar structure at either end of the molecule and a non-polar zone in the middle with 13 conjugated double bones. But the defining difference between Astaxanthin and ß-carotene is the presence of the hydroxyl (OH) and ketone (C=O) groups in each ionone ring: just because of this unique structure, on the quenching singlet oxygen activity, Astaxanthin has properties 550 times higher than Vitamin E, and 6,000 times stronger than Vitamin C.

BGG’s differentiation from other known suppliers: BGG’s Astaxanthin (AstaZine™) is extracted from the more efficacious natural source, Haematococcus pluvialis (HP).

A large farm for HP cultivation built in 2013, located in Yunnan Province. This region of Southern China being well known for its mild climate, clean air and water, has consistent sunlight, similar to Southern California, but with more rainfall and humidity, throughout year.

The targeted micro-algae are cultivated in a fully-closed-photo-bioreactors-system designed by BGG’s engineer-scientists.  BGG’s design avoids the disadvantages of any microbial contamination and enhances the controllability of the culture conditions and process.

Altogether, BGG’s farm design combined with the carefully selected location results in perfect conditions and the ideal environment for the cultivation of micro-algae; that contain all the nutrient-rich and special qualities essential for producing the richest, most potent Astaxanthin, that BGG brands as AstaZine™.

Of major significance, BGG’s proprietary manufacturing process results in micro-algae that have the highest levels of concentration and quality. For all these reasons, BGG’s AstaZine™ has been hugely welcomed by customers from the United States, Europe and Japan.

Astaxanthin original green state

The algae (Haematococcus pluvialisis) in its beginning green colored state. As the algae is fed it turns a rich green color. Just at the right time, food for the algae is cut off, this stress causes the algae to turn red, full of rich, natural astaxanthin ready for harvesting.

What benefits to human health does Astaxanthin have?

1) Protector for General Good Health and as a fighter against disease

To date, over 700 different carotenoids have been found in nature by scientists. But Astaxanthin has the greatest benefits of all of carotenoids due it’s being the only one that is able to easily cross the blood-brain barrier and some other bio-membranes. For this reason, Astaxanthin can be more easily absorbed by the human body and thence be transported to all tissues and organs in the body – to scavenge free radicals; and then from that stage of progress, actually protect tissues and organs from attack by free radicals, and reduce the risks from disease.

2) Benefits for Eye Health

Free radicals and singlet oxygen oxidize the polyunsaturated fatty acids in the retina, oxidization can lead to functional impairment of the retinal cell membranes and once oxidized, this cannot be undone; the result can lead to age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and age-related cataracts. Astaxanthin is effective for quenching free radicals in the retina through crossing blood-brain and blood-retina barriers, thus protecting eyes, and decreasing the occurrence of diseases caused by age and eye-fatigue through hard work, and so on.

3) Benefits for the Cardiovascular System

A great deal studies demonstrated that the high ox-LDL-cholesterol in the blood increases the risk of developing arteriosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases such as angina pectoris, myocardial infarction and brain thrombosis. It has been proved that Astaxanthin assists in reducing LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides, while increasing HDL, thereby protecting vascular function and heart health and decreasing the risk of those cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases.

4) Benefits against Skin Damage through Sun and UV Light

The effects of scorching summer sun and the over-exposure of skin tissues to UV-light over time can lead to damage that we now are well educated about and try to avoid. UVA radiation can damage the dermis layer of the skin, and then attack collagen and elastin, leading to wrinkles. UVB radiation can damage the cuticular layer of the skin, causing skin harm such as sunburn and the accentuation of freckles.

Astaxanthin is a supplement that has been found to protect against UV-induced photo-oxidation. In a study of AX in-vitro to examine the alterations of 3 different components of the human skin by exposure to UVA radiation, the results showed AX protects the skin from UVA light and damage to DNA. The results found that Astaxanthin has excellent potential as an oral sun-protectant.

Astaxanthin sold in the USA may be labeled with the following claims:

  • Supports Eye Health
  • Supports Brain Health
  • Supports a Healthy Cardiovascular System
  • Supports Joint Health
  • Supports the Body’s Normal Inflammatory Response
  • Supports Skin During Sun Exposure
  • Supports Healthy Skin
  • Supports Healthy Immune Function
