About us – Astareal
AstaReal is the first company in the world to commercially produce natural astaxanthin.
The company was founded in 1988 as a spin off from Uppsala University, where research researching the properties of astaxanthin had been undertaken. The company’s overall business goal is to contribute to better public health.
Astaxanthin is currently offered to consumers, among other things in the form of the dietary supplement Astaxin®.
