Study: AstaPure Arava is highly potent

The results of a new study are said to indicate that Algatechnologies’ AstaPure Arava algae powder is highly potent and has synergistic effects of the natural astaxanthin and the whole-algae complex. The research was conducted by Gitte Jensen, Ph.D., the head of NIS Labs, a US immunity research institute. The study identified a complex found in Algatech’s unique Arava strain of Haematococcus Pluvialis, cultivated organically in the desert’s harsh conditions.

AstaPure Arava is a clean-label, all-natural whole-algae complex that is said to contain all of the naturally occurring constituents of healthful Haematococcus Pluvialis algae. This species of microalgae is also the richest known source of astaxanthin.

AstaPure Arava whole-algae powder, containing the whole algae, natural astaxanthin and the newly discovered natural complex is backed by research and addresses the needs of consumers seeking pure, whole-food, plant-based, non-GMO nutraceuticals.

“In the study, we found complex, highly potent and synergistic effects across multiple parameters,” said Jensen. “This newly discovered biological activity was shown to positively trigger immediate immune responses as well as biomarkers involved in reparative and regenerative functions,” she adds. “These positive effects were observed even in the cell mitochondria.”

Algatech says its proprietary technology mimics the microalgae habitat and natural biological processes. The microalgae is cultivated organically and is exposed to the harsh desert climate, which stimulates the microalgae to produce high levels of active compounds. Algatech’s ESL technology is said to ensure the whole algae components remain undamaged and in their natural form throughout production. According to the company, AstaPure Arava whole-algae aligns with the market demand for clean-label, sustainable, minimally processed ingredients. During 2019 Algatech is expecting to introduce new innovative products and delivery forms based on the AstaPure Arava powder.

“Algatech continues to explore the full spectrum of Haematococcus Pluvialis microalgae beyond astaxanthin,” said Efrat Kat, VP of Global Sales for Algatech. “We can now provide consumers with all the goodness of nature in one concentrated, potent, and naturally balanced complex that is delivered with minimal processing and minimal footprint.”

“The astaxanthin ingredient in our AstaPure Arava whole-algae product complements the high- value omega oils, fibers, proteins, vitamins, and phospholipids that are inherent in this unique strain of microalgae, bringing the consumer all the powerful health benefits of astaxanthin by the most holistic means and closest to its natural form.”

Algatech and NIS Labs say they are are committed to continued exploration of the promising Arava whole algae powder’s potential health benefits, and to provide innovative delivery forms which will leverage the new findings and distinctive form of Astaxanthin.
