AstaPure®Arava: Beyond Astaxathin

Here at Algatech, we’re incredibly passionate about the wonder microalga Haematococcus pluvialis. In this small cell of wisdom lies the billions of years-old secrets to longevity and resilience. During dry periods, when conditions become stressful and ponds begin to dry, the microalga produces astaxanthin, enabling it to preserve its own DNA completely undamaged. That’s right - even if it takes dozens of years, the microalga is ready and able to grow again - completely undamaged - patiently waiting until the next rains.

Beyond Astaxanthin

However, this isn't even the complete story: Algatech discovered something even more awe-inspiring: it appears that our Arava strain microalga had yet more secrets to reveal. A complex from the whole algae discovered to have high potent activity, synergistic to the natural Astaxanthin. This newly discovered biological activity was shown to positively trigger immediate immune responses as well as biomarkers involved in reparative and regenerative functions. These positive effects were observed even in the cell's mitochondria function.

AstaPure®Arava is a new, exciting nutraceutical product, allowing consumers to go beyond Astaxanthin and finally have all the potency of the Haematococcus pluvialis: The whole algae. a whole-food rich, all-natural supplement.

Valuable ingredients

AstaPure® Arava, developed in the Arava desert, provides the consumer with natural, stable and pure ingredients. AstaPure® Arava encapsulates all the nutritional goodness of Haematococcus Pluvialis: superb astaxanthin, polysaccharides, vitamins, dietary fibers, fatty acids, and healthy proteins

Astaxanthin: More than 1500 peer-reviewed studies and over 1600 human participants in clinical trials demonstrate that Astaxanthin is one of the strongest known anti-oxidants, whose regular use as a nutraceutical has demonstrated its high value and health-related benefits

Polysaccharides and Dietary fibers: Over half of Haematococcus pluvialis cell comprises of carbohydrates including polysaccharides and dietary fibers

Lipids: A key input to the overall health benefits of total Haematococcus pluvialis whole algae powder is their high-quality fatty acid profile. AstaPure® Arava powder contains Phospholipids, which are well-known for their ability to improve the absorption of the lipids

Vitamins & Minerals – Haematococcus pluvialis whole algae powder contains a range of healthy constituents, including: 6 essential vitamins and 4 minerals supporting the physiological function of enzymes, cellular processes, cellular communication, or acting as precursors for functional molecules. These are B2, B5, B6, B8, B12 and D3


Algatech commissioned a clinical pilot study led by principal investigator late Dr. Rafael Bitzur, the former Secretary of the Israeli Society for the Treatment and Prevention of Atherosclerosis. In the study, the level of astaxanthin in the plasma of 10 healthy volunteers was measured by Haematococcus pluvialis LC during a 24 hr follow-up period, after the intake of a single dose of AstaPure® Arava. The significant findings show that astaxanthin from the whole algae was bioavailable in levels as high as in oleoresin.
