Panaferd®-AX comes from the microorganism Paracoccus carotinifaciens. This microorganism is one of many components in the start of the food chain in the aquatic environment and produces one of the highest concentration of carotenoids, including astaxanthin.

Nutritional Interests

Easily recognized by their colors varying from orange, to yellow and red, carotenoids are naturally found in plants, algae, and microorganisms such as Paracoccus. However, animals such as fish or shrimp do not synthesize carotenoids so they must find these nutrients in their food.

Carotenoids are key nutrients in various biological functions including vision, skin protection and reproduction. They also act as strong antioxidants and excellent free-radical quenchers like vitamins E and C.
