SALT LAKE CITY, April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today the Natural Algae Astaxanthin Association (NAXA) announced that AstaGlo, marketed by Elite Life Sciences, has qualified for the NAXA Verification Program Seal. The NAXA Verification Program (NAVP) tests products to verify that they contain natural algae astaxanthin derived from Haematococcus pluvialis algae. Natural algae astaxanthin derived from Haematococcus pluvialis is the only type of astaxanthin that has been clinically proven to have health benefits in human studies. AstaGlo contains AstaZine® Natural Astaxanthin produced by Algae Health Sciences, and it is the first product with exclusive international distribution to receive the seal.
"Consumers want to know that what they're getting is astaxanthin extracted from Haematococcus pluvialis," said Scott Steinford, NAXA President. "NAXA"s third-party independent testing assures consumers and manufacturers that what's in the bottle is the natural form of astaxanthin that has been clinically tested."
"We're proud to have AstaGlo become the first Algae Health Sciences customer to receive the NAXA Verified Seal and expect many more to follow," said Joe Huff, CEO of Algae Health Sciences' North American operation. "AstaGlo will be produced in the United States, and exclusively sold in Asia. The NAXA Verified Seal reinforces the superiority of astaxanthin products containing natural algae astaxanthin."
