Algatech is among the few companies in the world to have cracked the code for producing commercial-scale natural microalgae at the very highest standards. Their proprietary technology and know-how enable the cultivation of microalgae in a patented closed system; one of the world’s largest photobioreactor facilities - more than 600 Kilometers (310 miles) long, which eliminates any exposure to chemical, physical or microbiological contaminations. Algatech cultivation equipment and the nutrients used are all approved food quality, ensuring microalgae will not absorb impurities during the production process. The company has implemented a fully controlled system verified by ISO 22000 certification - from petri dish to commercial product. These unique capabilities have allowed Algatech to become the leader in the production and supply of one of the world’s most powerful antioxidants sourced from the microalgae Haematococcus pluvialis. AstaPure®, a premium natural astaxanthin which is sold globally as an active ingredient to nutritional, cosmetic, and food and beverages industries.
Eco friendly cultivation:
Algatech’s proprietary technology mimics the microalgae habitat and natural biological processes. The microalgae are cultivated organically and is exposed to the harsh desert climate, which stimulates the microalgae to produce high levels of active compounds. Algatech’s production facility is located in the Arava desert between the Dead Sea and the Red Sea, an ideal location for the cultivation of microalgae as a result of the stable climate conditions in the region, the intense year-round sunlight, and the clean air and land, free from any industrial contaminants or pollutants. Algatech relies on power generated in the adjacent solar panel farm and our own water recycling platform. The microalgae cultivation displaces no other crops, feeds on industrial by-products and creates only oxygen as waste. It is a genuine ecological crop. Algatech’s cultivation protocols and processes allow consistent and sustainable production of the microalgae, bringing quality products to the market since 1998.
AstaPure® Natural Astaxanthin
Barrington is proud to feature AstaPure® natural astaxanthin extracted from Haematococcus pluvialis algal biomass by Supercritical CO2 extraction technology. Our manufacturer employs an exclusive and patented closed system for the cultivation of microalgae, ensuring high content of active ingredients and unmatched 95% purity rate - the best in the market. Offered in oleoresin and microencapsulated beadlets, they are perfect for use in Nutraceutical, Cosmetic and Food products. Astaxanthin’s antioxidant properties, both as a quencher of singlet oxygen and a scavenger of free radicals; its ability to protect lipids from peroxidation; and its dramatic effect on avoiding DNA damage, have been clearly demonstrated. It is one of the most powerful lipophilic antioxidants yet discovered. Astaxanthin has been shown to actually cross the blood-brain and blood-retina barriers, meaning it can positively impact disorders related to the brain and the central nervous system.
AstaPure® oleoresin is available in 5%, 10% and 20% concentrations, offered exclusively in North America by Barrington Nutritionals.

AstaPure® Arava - Whole Algae Powder
AstaPure® Arava wholealgae is an all-natural whole food, organically cultivated, clean label and vegan-friendly. It’s full of nutritional values recommended as a part of a daily supplement program at any age. Algatech’s proprietary ESL process preserves a highly active compound composed of polysaccharides and essential fatty acids that synergise with astaxanthin.
The whole Algae comprises a unique composition that demonstrated support for the organism’s resilience:
Antioxidants - With over 1,500 peer-reviewed studies and 1,600+ human participants in clinical trials, it has been found that astaxanthin is one of the strongest known antioxidants with health-related benefits. In fact, studies have shown that natural astaxanthin derived from microalgae is over 500 times stronger than vitamin E - and a much more powerful antioxidant than delete all other carotenoids.
Polysaccharides and dietary fibers - One of the most interesting results in the study points at the potential ability of AstaPure® Arava’s unique complex to promote regeneration-related growth factor G-CSF. This factor is known to help in resolving normal, healthy inflammation as a part of an immune defense, thus facilitating the return to homeostasis, and avoiding a chronic inflammatory state. Additionally, it also may induce post-trauma or injury tissue reparation.
Essential fatty acids - Featuring 30% lipids, the astaxanthin-rich whole algae powder has a fatty acid composition of nutraceutical value: ~24% of the oil is composed of the essential omega-6 fatty acid linoleic acid (LA). LA is a polyunsaturated fatty acid used in the biosynthesis of arachidonic acid (AA) and a variety of health-relevant compounds. It is an essential fatty acid that has to be consumed for proper health. ~16% of fatty acids in the oil consist of the essential omega-3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid (ALA), which is known to be one of the essential fatty acids required for good health.
Vitamins and minerals - Haematococcus pluvialis whole algae powder contains six essential vitamins and four minerals that support the physiological function of enzymes, cellular processes, cellular communication or act as precursors for functional molecules. These vitamins are B2, B5, B6, B8, B12 and D3.
AstaPure® EyeQ - For Eyes and Brain
Algatechnologies, Ltd. (Algatech), developed AstaPure® EyeQ, a high-purity powder derived from Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae — the richest known source of natural astaxanthin — with improved bioavailability. It is a microencapsulated, cold water-soluble 2% natural astaxanthin powder, it has no flavor or aroma, and is suitable for targeted health beverages, as a shot delivery format, in premix drinks, or dispenser caps. Or, it can be readily incorporated into supplements (from softgels to gummies and other chewables) and functional foods, such as bars. It also is Kosher and Halal, non-GMO, cleanlabel, sustainable, and minimally processed ingredient. The astaxanthin is encapsulated using an innovative, patented microencapsulation technology, with a unique formula of completely biodegradable and natural materials and protein, enabling higher bioavailability in the eyes and brain.
FucoVital™ - For Healthy Liver
FucoVital™ is an innovative proprietary composition for liver health derived from the Phaeodactylum tricornutum microalgae. This type of microalgae is a naturally rich source of fucoxanthin, an orange-brown carotenoid which plays a part in photosynthesis and helps protect the microalgae from oxidative stress. While fucoxanthin provides excellent anti-oxidative benefits like many other carotenoids, its true value goes far beyond. The consumption of algae has always been considered one of the reasons for the superior good health and longevity of certain Asian groups. Recent research institutes from around the world have identified fucoxanthin as a major contributor to the Japanese diet’s health benefits.
Studies have shown fucoxanthin to provide a variety of health benefits in the area of metabolic syndrome, supporting healthy glucose and inflammatory responses and most importantly, supporting liver health. Compared to seaweed-derived products, FucoVital™’s proprietary composition has proven to have high potency in testing conducted at a leading research center, and we are committed to supporting further scientific exploration of this unique natural wonder.
