Astaxanthin is a red carotenoid and a potent antioxidant that is over 500 times more powerful than Vitamin E and 10 - 20 times stronger than other carotenoids such as zeaxanthin, lutein, lycopene and beta-carotene. While found in plants and animals, it is most prevalent in the marine environment and in algae and phytoplankton.
As nature's most powerful antioxidant, BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin has been documented to show a wide range of benefits in human clinical studies on several serious health concerns. Due to its molecular structure, Astaxanthin is one of the few antioxidants that can move throughout the entire body and provide protection to all of our cells. And Astaxanthin has the unique property that it can protect the entire cell. It has polar hydrophilic ends that span across the entire cell membrane. Most other well-known antioxidants cannot do this.
Nutrex Hawaii's BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin is an incredibly potent natural supplement. It supports cardiovascular health and healthy immune function. No other antioxidant can compare to the energy boosting powers of BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin. Taken daily, it will help keep your body strong and full of powerful energy-boosting antioxidants.
Nutrex Hawaii's BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin is free of gluten, lactose, pesticides and herbicides. It is Non-GMO and BSE-Free. Nutrex GRAS status (is recognized as safe by the US FDA).
About Nutrex Hawaii
Nutrex Hawaii was founded in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii in 1990 by Dr. Gerald Cysewski, a world-renowned expert in microalgae and carotenoids. Their mission is to utilize the benefits of microalgae to improve health and extend lives in the world wide community.
Carved out of land that was once a barren lava flow, Nutrex Hawaii is located on the pristine Kona coast on the Big Island of Hawaii. Their farm draws on the natural resources that surround us - abundant warm sunlight, pure deep ocean water and 100% fresh water drawn from Hawaiian aquifers to cultivate:
- Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica - a superior strain of Spirulina, with the highest known nutritional content of any Spirulina.
- BioAstin - 100% pure, natural Hawaiian Astaxanthin, the world's strongest natural antioxidant with benefits for joint health, skin health, eye and brain health and for athletes and active people.
What Makes Nutrex Hawaii Products Unique?
Situated on the bright, sunny Kona coast, Nutrex Hawaii's farm receives more sunlight than any other coastal location in the United States enabling Nutrex Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica to grow continuously for 12 months a year. Their ponds have been in operation since 1985. What does that mean for you? More nutrition. Spirulina Pacifica has evolved into a nutritionally superior strain after more than 25 years of continuous cultivation in the intense Hawaiian sun.
Nutrex Hawaii is the only microalgae farm located in a "BioSecure Zone" that prohibits the use of harmful pesticides and genetically modified organisms. What does that mean for you? Nutrex Hawaii's Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica and BioAstin Hawaiian Astaxanthin products are grown without using any harmful pesticides, herbicides and they do not generate land erosion or water pollution. Their products are safe, pure and guaranteed GMO Free.
100% Potable Drinking Water
Nutrex Hawaii's products are grown with 100% potable drinking water. This water is collected from the Big Island's pristine aquifer. After being natural filtered through lava rock, this water is as fresh as it gets. To minimize water waste and return essential nutrients back into their growing ponds, the majority of the fresh water is recycled and returned to the pond for the next growing cycle. This process contributes to providing the world's most nutritious Spirulina.
Ultra-Pure Deep Ocean Water
Five percent ocean water is added to the growing media for Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica. It is the only cultured microalgae grown with ultra-pure deep ocean water pumped up from a depth of 2000 feet below sea level. What does that mean for you? Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica is enriched with all 94 minerals and trace elements including magnesium and calcium.
Ocean Chill Drying
Nutrex Hawaii's patented Ocean Chill Drying system eliminates oxidation and damage to carotenoids, enzymes and other fragile nutrients that occur in standard drying methods. What does that mean for you? Nutritional content that you can rely on. This patented system dries Nutrex Hawaii's Spirulina in just 3-7 seconds, relies on very cold deep ocean water to provide de-humidification and uses less than one percent oxygen to preserve the phytonutrients. And because of their superior packaging, Nutrex Hawaii's Spirulina arrives to the consumer as fresh as the day it was harvested.
Environmental Responsibility & Sustainability
Nutrex Hawaii's corporate philosophy is to leave the land and environment in better condition than when they started. What does this mean for you? You can feel good about purchasing products from a company that does everything possible to protect the environment. Some examples of Nutrex Hawaii's environmental stewardship include:
- Nutrex Hawaii's vast algae ponds give off oxygen as they grow to help combat global warming.
- Spirulina is the world's most productive crop that uses the least amount of water per pound of protein produced.
- They use cold seawater as an economical source of energy to cool their culture ponds and even to air condition their buildings.
- Nutrex Hawaii recycles everything from the water in their culture ponds to the waste algae they produce (which is used by local farmers as fertilizer).
- A portion of Nutrex Hawaii's profits are donated to worthy causes and they've received an Audubon Society award for saving an endangered species of local Hawaiian birds.
You can be sure that when purchasing a product from Nutrex Hawaii, you are doing a small part to help protect the fragile Hawaiian ecosystem.
