A mega effect!
Chronic stress, harmful environmental influences as well as strong physical strain increasingly lead to the formation of free radicals. THE CONSEQUENCE: OXIDATIVE STRESS DEVELOPS. This attacks cells, is the cause of a variety of diseases, accelerates the aging process and weakens the immune system.
OUR FRESHWATER ALGAE
In many respects, algae are considered the raw material of the future. Plants that are over two billion years old are considered to have great potential in tomorrow’s energy and food production. While feverish research is being conducted worldwide on various algae applications, we – BDI-BioLife Science – are already one step ahead.
For a good three years now, we have been producing the high-quality valuable substance astaxanthin, which is used in the food supplement and cosmetics industries.
The focus is on the blood rain alga Haematococcus pluvialis, which is only 60 micrometers in size and is a microalga with a mega effect. The alga contains comparatively large amounts of the carotenoid astaxanthin, a true miracle ingredient. Natural astaxanthin is considered one of the most powerful antioxidants of all, according to studies. According to these studies, the antioxidant effect is 100 times stronger than vitamin E, 770 times stronger than CoEnzyme Q10 and 6,000 times stronger than vitamin C.
