100% organic, non-GMO astaxanthin
Bio-Kai is a biotech startup producing 100% organic biosynthetic astaxanthin to feed salmon, chicken, and cattle

Bio-Kai produces organic, non-GMO biosynthesized astaxanthin that is 100% identical to the one extracted from algae but at a much lower cost and the minimal impact on the environment.

Most of the astaxanthin used for feeding animals today is chemically synthesized and may include by-products, toxins, and contaminants.

In contrast, BioKai produces astaxanthin by fermenting proprietary yeast. It is a purely organic, high-quality product available at a lower cost than its synthetic analog.

What is astaxanthin?

Astaxanthin (ASX) is a natural micronutrient and antioxidant that is usually produced by algae. It is a part of the carotenoid family and is responsible for the

rich, red hues of seafood. Astaxanthin also offers various health benefits and applications in medicine, cosmetology, and the food industry.

The robust antioxidant quality of astaxanthin helps with wellness in several areas of humans health
Prevents cancer

Oxygen radicals often damage cells and can lead to various types of cancers. It promotes the elimination of these damaging oxygen radicals. Astaxanthin antioxidant qualities are 6000+ times stronger than vitamin C, 550 times stronger than vitamin E, 800+ times stronger than another well-known antioxidant, Coenzyme Q10.

Protects the brain

Oxidative damage can also lead to conditions such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. By supporting protective mechanisms against oxidative stress, can support healthy brain function.

Defends the skin

Ultraviolet (UV)-induced damage to the skin can cause age spots, wrinkles, and reduced skin elasticity. By promoting the skin’s immune response to damaging factors, such as UV radiation, ASX can support healthy skin.

Feeds farmed fish and animals

Astaxanthin is also in high demand in the animal food industry, as it is the compound that gives certain fish their distinctive red color. Several studies have found that feeding ASX to fish and poultry increases animal pigmentation, stress tolerance, disease resistance, reproductive capacity, UV-protection and improves animal survival.

Unique Advantages of Biosynthetic Astaxanthin
Ways to get astaxanthin

The natural reservoir for astaxanthin is algae; however, its synthesis by algae is an inefficient process since algae grow slowly. The chemical synthesis of astaxanthin is a widely used cost-effective alternative, but it can lead to by-products known as stereoisomers. These stereoisomers formed through chemical synthesis may pose the risk of unwanted side effects.

Bio-Kai’s method

BioKai’s method of organic biosynthesis offers a way to efficiently and naturally extract astaxanthin. In our method, special yeast undergoes the natural biological process of fermentation to consistently produce large quantities of high-quality biosynthetic astaxanthin, which is identical to the one found in nature.

Unique Advantages of Biosynthetic Astaxanthin

The unique advantages of biosynthetic astaxanthin include eliminating undesirable stereoisomers and environmental sustainability by producing the compound identical to natural. Additionally, biosynthesis is a cost-effective way to create large quantities of high-quality, 100% pure astaxanthin at the same or lower price as chemical synthesis.
