Dunaliella Salina is a soft, single-celled microalgae cultivated in saline-rich environments on the southwestern coast of Australia. It is one of the few photosynthetic life-forms, nearly 1.5 billion years old, with the ability to survive in saline-rich environments. Due to its high mixed carotenoid content, giving it a characteristic orange color, D. Salina is an antioxidant powerhouse.
D. Salina contains the complete carotenoid complex, a class of yellow, orange and red pigments, including 7.5% beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and lutein. These important antioxidants protect it from intense UV sunlight, and in turn helps protect the humans who consume them.
Along with a complete set of B Vitamins, all 72 trace minerals including Magnesium, and all 9 Essential Amino Acids, D. Salina incredibly contains twice the Chlorophyll of Spirulina. In fact, D. Salina’s balance of protein, polysaccharides and essential fatty acids make it the perfect food for building healthy cells.
Double-blind human clinical studies have proven D. Salina’s antioxidant abilities to protect against radiation exposure, ultraviolet damage and exercise-induced free radicals.
