NAXA welcomes Atacama Bio as Executive Member

Atacama Bio has been producing natural astaxanthin derived from Haematococcus pluvialis since 2003 in the Atacama desert in Chile on its 250-acre facility using closed and open photo-bioreactors.

The Natural Algae Astaxanthin Association (NAXA), headquartered in Spring, Texas, has announced that Chile-based Atacama Bio is its newest executive member. Atacama Bio has been producing natural astaxanthin derived from Haematococcus pluvialis since 2003 in the Atacama Desert in Chile on its 250-acre facility using closed and open photo-bioreactors.

The Chilean firm markets two formats of Haematococcus pluvialis. Supreme Asta Oil is the natural oleoresin extracted from the milled and dried biomass of Haematococcus pluvialis by means of the CO2 supercritical extraction process. For usage in food, beverage, dietary supplement and cosmetic products it is supplied in 5% and 10% standardized content of natural astaxanthin.

SAP, Supreme Asta Powder is the powder that comes from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis. Powder is produced from the rupture by physical force of the low temperature dried cysts of the microalgae. 100% of the bioavailable active ingredient is obtained. The powder contents are exclusively 3S, 3’S optical isomer of astaxanthin from Haematococcus pluvialis, which means it is 100% natural astaxanthin, not synthetic.

“We are honored to welcome Atacama Bio as our newest Executive member,” said Scott Steinford, NAXA President. “Atacama Bio’s membership signifies their commitment to helping build awareness and credibility for natural algae astaxanthin.”

NAXA members commit to a Code of Ethics and each member’s raw material is tested in order to verify that the source of the astaxanthin is the HP microalgae and their facility is visited before being allowed to join the organization.

NAXA is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit trade association of manufacturers, growers and marketers of natural algae astaxanthin, derived from Haematococcus pluvialis. NAXA is dedicated to educating the public and dietary supplement industry about the health benefits of Natural Astaxanthin and the major differences between sources.

“NAXA members support the natural astaxanthin industry,” said Jose Luis Arenas, CEO and Founder, Atacama Bio. “We are proud to join NAXA to help advance awareness of the powerful benefits and differences of natural algae astaxanthin.”
