Haematococcus pluvialis is a green unicellular freshwater microalgae of the Chlorophyceae class.
The life cycle includes vegetative forms (macrozoids), and spores.
Unfavorable environmental conditions for reproduction can lead to oxidative stress and the formation of spores, the form in which there is the greatest production of astaxanthin, useful for the protection of the spore itself, thanks to its ability to neutralize free radicals.
In addition to being rich in proteins, lutein and fatty acids, Haematocuccus is the richest source of natural astaxanthin: a carotenoid with high antioxidant capacity, greater than synthetic astaxanthin, lycopene or vitamin C, useful in the prevention of chronic inflammation, skin blemishes, ocular and neurological degeneration.
