Inspired by the superb vision and natural mechanism of the eagle’s eye, Algatech has introduced AstaPure EyeQ, a microencapsulated, cold water-soluble 2% natural astaxanthin powder. It can be applied to supplements, functional foods, and beverages.
 
An eagle’s eye contains astaxanthin and other carotenoids that help protect it from oxidative stress and radiation. Inspired by the wisdom of nature, Algatech developed proprietary technology that enables effective delivery of astaxanthin, for more efficient support of eye health.
 
A preclinical study conducted at Kyoto University showed that AstaPure EyeQ crosses both the blood-brain and the brain-retina barriers. A pharmacokinetics clinical study demonstrated that AstaPure EyeQ gives a two-fold bioavailability in the plasma.
 
Algatech will showcase AstaPure EyeQ in a virtual reality cinematic engagement at Vitafoods 2019.
 
Located in the Arava desert, Algatech cultivates microalgae in a patented, eco-friendly, closed system that guarantees the production of safe, pure ingredients and minimizes environmental footprint. Algatech will also present its newly launched AstaPure Arava whole-algae powder and FucoVital, an innovative microalgae-derived composition supporting liver health.
