ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Valensa International announced today that it has developed technology that has dramatically increased the stability and shelf-life of the powerful, versatile antioxidant astaxanthin. The company has just completed a 7-year shelf-life study of its Zanthin(R) natural astaxanthin that indicates that this ultra-high pressure supercritical CO2 extract of Haematococcus pluvialis, bolstered by Valensa's proprietary O2B(R) Peroxidation Blocker technology, has a minimum 4-year shelf-life. Published reports by other astaxanthin producers indicate ranges of 1 - 2 years under refrigeration as the existing state-of-the-art for astaxanthin stability. Effective immediately, Valensa has raised its Zanthin(R) brand astaxanthin oleoresin stability recommendation to 4 years at 20 degrees C. The greater stability profile of Zanthin(R) astaxanthin will allow formulators of nutraceutical products to use smaller safety margins (overage) to assure consumers of efficacy in products on a store shelf, which can lead to cost savings.
