The Next Wave in Sea-Based Beauty with AstaReal® Astaxanthin

Food, Food Ingredients & Innovations,
  • Wednesday, October 13, 2021

Natural astaxanthin is a sea-inspired nutrient found in our diet, mainly from wild salmon. AstaReal clinical studies have demonstrated that 2-12 mg/day of AstaReal® Astaxanthin can provide beauty-from-within and whole-body benefits. However, diet alone is not enough to obtain this effective dose of natural astaxanthin. Furthermore, vegetarian sources of natural astaxanthin are not available in our diet. This is why AstaReal pioneered the natural astaxanthin supplement industry, making available a plant-based version sourced from microalgae grown in the USA.

Register for this webinar to hear Dawn Jackson Blatner, RDN, CSSD and Karen Hecht, Ph.D. discuss all things natural astaxanthin and beauty-from-within. The speakers will place astaxanthin in perspective by outlining what makes natural astaxanthin stand out among antioxidants: powerful free radical scavenging activity, whole-body benefits, and mitochondrial support for a unique take on skin health. We will also dive into the clinical studies supporting claims of skin hydration, elasticity and smoothness that have been recently approved for AstaReal® Astaxanthin by Health Canada.

A discussion will follow the webinar, exploring compelling ingredients that pair well with natural astaxanthin for formulations that shine. Finally, the speakers will outline the breadth of delivery formats and applications for AstaReal® Astaxanthin that will allow you to flex your creativity for product formulations that are a cut above the rest.

AstaReal® Astaxanthin is supported by 70 human clinical studies, made by algae using a unique indoor cultivation method that produces consistently high quality natural astaxanthin made in the USA. Learn more about AstaReal’s natural astaxanthin and 360° support to catch the next wave in beauty-from-within innovation.
