AstaReal Presents New Formulation With Astaxanthin and Omega-3 Fatty Acids at Vitafoods Europe

  • AstaReal's new formulation combines two algal-derived ingredients, astaxanthin and omega-3 fatty acids, for optimal health support.
  • The new formula will be showcased alongside Astaxin®, a rebranded retail product with a minimalist Nordic look.
  • AstaReal also offers astaxanthin for animals through feed and pet food grade NOVASTA®.

AstaReal will present its new finished formulation at this year’s Vitafoods. For optimal health support, the new product combines two algal-derived ingredients, astaxanthin and omega-3 fatty acids. It was developed in cooperation with the French omega-3 expert Polaris. AstaReal will also showcase its classic retail supplement Astaxin®, which was recently rebranded with a more modern new look.

AstaReal has added a new finished formula to its range of natural astaxanthin products and will showcase it at Vitafoods for the first time. For the microalgae combination, AstaReal partnered with the French company Polaris to create a sustainable and vegan product that contains not only astaxanthin but also omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). While astaxanthin from microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis is a strong antioxidant with cell protective power, EPA and DHA from microalgae Schizochytrium are important for flexible membranes and contribute to the normal function of the heart. DHA also contributes to the maintenance of normal brain function and vision.

Alongside its new microalgae combination, which will be presented at the new product zone, AstaReal will showcase its proven range of high-quality astaxanthin bulk products and finished formulations. Visitors can also take a look at the recently rebranded Astaxin®: AstaReal’s well-established retail product now has a minimalist Nordic look. It contains astaxanthin, vitamin C, and E – the two latter contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Besides human-grade formulations, AstaReal also offers astaxanthin for animals through its feed and pet food grade NOVASTA®, with products such as EB15 known for high stability.

Peter Ahlm, Head of Marketing & Sales at AstaReal, comments: “We are excited to introduce our new finished formulation that combines the most precious ingredients found in microalgae, namely astaxanthin and long-chained omega-3 fatty acids. Through this launch, we are committing to algae as a plant-based, fast-regrowing, and future-proof source which will gain further traction in the nutrition and supplement market. One pillar in the success of algae is the growing scientific research on its ingredients. With our longstanding expertise, as well as through our studies and clinical trials, we contribute to a better understanding of astaxanthin and its health benefits for humans and animals.”
