Haematococcus pluvialis, a microalga, is the richest known natural source for astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is classified as a carotenoid. Carotenoids are lipid-soluble pigments. They are also known for their antioxidant properties. They are what colors the orange and red found in plants and algae, and blues, purples and reddish colors in aquatic animals. Algae, plants, phytoplankton, as well as particular bacteria and fungi are the only organisms that can synthesize carotenoids. The human species as well as other animal species cannot carotenoids and must included them as part of their diet to maintain proper health. The large volume of astaxanthin occurs within the resting cells, that are generated and quickly accumulated once the ecological conditions turns undesirable for natural cell growth.
Haematococcus pluvialis is thought to collect the greatest amounts of astaxanthin found in nature. Commercially cultivated Haematococcus pluvialis can amass greater than 40g of Astaxanthin per kilo.
